Nah, don't bother with the stock PWG turbo, just slap on a pure stage 1 or 2, or any other turbo kit that is out for F30s. You're so limited on the PWG turbo it's not even funny, you'll max it out really quickly, and even then, it's really not worth it as maxing out a turbo is not good for the turbo itself.

Take it from someone who tried literally EVERYTHING to get the most out of the PWG turbo. As you can see I gave up and just bought a PS2 and 400whp is so easy, I'm on shitty 91 octane. On 94, I can probably easily squeeze out another 50whp with a custom tune. There's no huge cliff drop after 5k rpm, and it just pulls.
Sounds expensive lol
