    Hi, im new to the BMW scene, so i am curious about the twin turbochargers on the 35D engine, hopefully someone can answer some questions i have

    what type of turbo are they ?, i know the early 2000's 30D's are fitted with a GT2556v, then later on a GTB2260vk.

    do they have a VNT mechanism? and has anyone tried retrofitting them to a normal 30D

    also what are the differences between the two engines ? is it just the fuel system or is the bottom end stronger ?.

    as you may have guessed im thinking about fitting twin turbo's to my current 530D so im curious about how much torque the manual transmission can cope with safely before exploding.

    thanks
    Carl

    Not going to say it's impossible, nothing is given enough ingenuity and money!

    It would be very tricky however.

    The turbos are not VNT type (don't know there model type sorry) and are controlled by 3 vacuum actuators. So its the controling of them which will be the biggest challenge in my eyes.

    There some fancy piece of engineering. http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...7&d=1297892501

    And if what I've read on here is correct the piston's and conrods are different in the 35d engines.
