TLOA Turbo Labs of America turbo rebuild

Who are you and how are you liking it?



Same person also did their X5M so it's sparked interest over there as well.

Who are you people, damn it :-) Intake AND exhaust wheel options, finally!! I'd like a $2k option vs a $5k while getting almost the same results. Pure has great results and all, but are they really worth the $3k +/- difference...I think not but that's just me.

Maybe so. Nevertheless I'm sure there's an answer on their website and/or their YouTube videos.

They don't only do BMW's, so I'm not sure how that's relevant. They're a rebuilder, Austin just happens to have an N54 powered 335 so that's how I've heard about them.

Most don't point out if they're non-TU or TU, which is a teaser for me since I'm often reading on both N63 and S63, non-TU and TU, forums.

You've gotten them rebuilt by TLOA, but what options did you choose? What'd this cost you? Do you have an S63 powered vehicle as well, particularly the ones rebuilt in the first video? Are your turbos in either of the 3 videos linked above? I don't know about N63 guys, but I know I can use S63TU turbos on my non-TU S63 engine with some mild machining on th header-to-turbo flange.

How long did it take? Any idea what numbers you'll be putting out soon?
