    Bingo! You'll get some rep headed your way shortly. Nice job That recirc button in the car with the "A" on it. That's auto recirc mode and uses this air quality sensor as the trigger.

    I GOT IT ! "Controls your BMW HVAC recirculation system by controlling the recirculation flaps This clever little sensor detects the levels of oxidizable gasses flowing through the engine bay. When a specific threshold is reached, the HVAC recirculation flap closes for a specific time after the noxious gasses are no longer present."

    First available question still unanswered but Traf is hot on its tail Second available rep earning question is a two parter: The BMW N54 comes with a twin turbo I6 from the factory (no shit right), SO who, or whom for you pompous asses, originally manufactured the stock turbos and what were the general specs? Second part: What other AMERICAN car company produced a car with twin turbos, sharing the same specs as the N54 thru most of the 90s?

    benzy89 I'm really sorry that happened to you and unfortunately I was unaware of many things the front office would do or not do until it was too late. The remedy is moving forward I'm the only one dealing with customers now so there won't be anymore insults or owner never available nonsense. If I can help you in anyway with any future repairs/ maintenance / or mods please let me know. 631.920.6699 enzoracing@gmail.com Enzo

    Hypothetically, if it were that, the ebay seller is not accurately describing its function. It is not a temperature sensor.

    Isn't it a sensor for the alarm ? And the one on your picture is a temp sensor.

    Lot of new guys looking to get some rep and I think this will make it entertaining, helpful and we all might learn something here and there. New to the site doesn't mean new to a platform. Rule is the first member under 100 rep to answer a question gets 10 rep from me and whatever else anyone wants to throw at you. I encourage the vets to throw in questions, just don't make them too easy. We'll keep it E92, E46, E36 related. I'll kick it off with an identify this pic question. I didn't know wtf this did for the longest time... What is it and what does it do? (passenger side)

    I honestly thought you meant to quote someone else but since you where talking to me sure. Figuring out why companies have tried and failed on my own dime is not an issue. I'll make a weekend out of it. Won't be difficult to find someone to tune it since lots of N54 tuners have experience with them. Will have to be next weekend tho, trying to figure out the next step in replacing this turn signal bulb this weekend. Not sure if I'm doing it right.

    d21spike replied to a thread My N54 Top-end Rebuild in N54
    Glad to hear it back up and running. Did you by chance grab any pictures of the damage you mentioned? I think if I had studs this wouldn't have been as much of an issue for me, but when I was shopping the only ones I came across I believe were from ABR at a premium. I decided against it since I'm pushing the limits like you. On a side note, decided to give a CDI torque wrench a try on this rebuild and I must say I'm not disappointed, even has the snap-on name on the case.

    I leave my rear inlet in place, set the head down, tq it in place, then put the vbands on the turbos before putting the cam ledges in. I have head studs in my motor so I just put two of them in place, and slide it down, all you have to do is just make sure the inlet is pushed back enough. My car has been back up, and running for about 4 days now, its been pouring rain, buteI've put about 60 miles on it. Let me know how this works out

    d21spike replied to a thread My N54 Top-end Rebuild in N54
    Here we go again, today was freakishly warm ... high 50's in the middle of January is almost unheard of around here. As such, I took advantage of that and had the garage door open the entire time. Anyways, accomplishments for the day include: cylinder head installed, rear inlet installed, and charge pipe (hot side) installed. This may not seem like much but I had work early on and then set off to work on the car. I found out the hard way that it's damn near impossible to install a cylinder head with the rear inlet in place while mating the head to the turbos as well as the dowels in the block makes for a lot of effort. Advice from this, don't try to have the inlet on before the head is on and unless you're mechanically capable pull the motor instead of struggling to bolt the turbos to block and have the gaskets align. Regardless that's the route that was taken, inlet came off, head was placed on the block/pins, turbos mated, head bolted down, turbos tightened, rear inlet installed, and charge pipe installed. You'll notice the blue hose, I'm replacing all the vacuum tubing with high temperature silicone. I think this will be switched to black soon. For reference sake the diameter is 3.5mm.

    Now that custom logic is a thing thatnks to @jyamona@motiv , @martial@mhd and prob a couple of others I don't know about, I have a feature request to consider adding to the to-do list or at least discuss, IAT-based target AFR changes. I think a multiplier table based with load x IAT as the axis would be best as we don't want changes at low load. I don't think having RPM as an axis is needed. Even a 4x4 table would be plenty IMO. I've always much preferred to add fuel at high IAT instead of removing timing because high IAT + removed timing sends EGT through the roof. Does anyone else think it'd be awesome to target for example 12.6:1 at high RPM at 60F IAT and a gradually changing target AFR through to say 11.6:1 at 140F for extra safety? I think it would do wonders for post-shift timing drops too because IAT is often high after pulling through a gear and going into the next gear. As a result, the IAT timing correction tables could easily be halved without getting knock at high IAT.

    OT..haven't heard of crankshaft failure, but I and many others have run into the issue of the crank pulley bolt backing out on them.. a B/S reason to lose a motor when it is supposedly torqued to 300 ft/lbs and hasn't been touched.

    +1 JB4 required absolutely no effort vs any other option (not knocking them).. just a matter of choosing the right back end flash file.. and updating the firmware.. crazy to think 5 min after buttoning up the car it was running strong. i did have 1 issue with the fuel scalar initially when I went to turn it up, but even that was solved by asking terry and trying a different already available file

    its pretty straightforward tbh.. and is simply just a series of bolt ons.. unless you choose to make it more complicated than it is of course.. i think the issues people encounter are generally not doing enough research.. or knowing what inefficiencies are in each kit.. or simply what to ask.. knock on wood.. i've been trouble free since i put mine on in july and that was on an lkq motor with >100k miles.. and it is my daily.. for me it really has been plug and play.. without any custom tuning.. i made sure i changed out what i found inadequate if you wanna "push the limits" and run around on >30psi often with any of the common turbos used on a stock motor well yeah that is probably a cause for concern too, i don't really know any that have lasted. for the most part i think people know the risks at that point..

    Anyone got any small/cheap mods they did to their cars that made a huge difference? Ive done stuff like M3 tranny mounts, diff lockdown bracket that didn't cost that much and made driving a whole lot better. Hell even putting on studs made switch wheels so much easier and faster.
