    20lb spring should make a huge difference. Your setup should have no problems holding 30+ psi as long as you have no leaks.

    I am thinking about doing IS mounts while my car is getting new DPs. Is there significant NVH increase with these IS mounts? Can you confirm that the left mount is the same in the 335i as the 335is? Do you have part numbers for these parts? Thanks a ton!

    Yes I have but the car has been down long enough this year. Mine isn't really consuming or burning much the oil level is still full (even if going 5 k on an oil change it will only use 1/2 a qt which is pretty normal). Until I have verified it's not just burning off remaining oil from the bad turbo seals I don't want to take the car out of commission before NFZ. I have only put on 20 miles so far from getting it back together so I figure a good week will tell. The amount coming out is getting continuously less which is good but by no means is gone. I have a great plan for a PCV fix as well but like all the others requires blocking head ports which I will do over the extended Wisconsin winter.

    Did you see Rob's updated DIY for the PCV system. He said so far it has stopped his engine from smoking.

    I'd be more interested in seeing if a complete transmission swap is possible and if it is significantly stronger than the transmission we currently have on the 335i.

    Fishayyy replied to a thread Rear Main Seal/Twin Disc in N54
    I might have a connection for borrowing the tool but if not I will definitely just use those washers. I thought the BMW seal required their special locktite sealant for like $70, is that not necessary? The only reason I was considering getting a different seal was because I had read from some other guy that bmw trys to make the seal low friction which in turn makes it weaker, so I was trying to explore my options even though I know the BMW one is a guaranteed fit.

    Update: Got the car back together after work last night and running still getting minor amounts of smoke wondering if it's just burning off oil in the exhaust yet. Slightly suspect that the Valve seals or PCV may be at fault for the remaining smoke but I won't have a good idea till it has a few days to burn off the lingering oil. Thank you payam, I am on it just waiting on the pressure tester i'm making gets finished (ordered gauge). Those new WG springs.... epic. I haven't had a chance to do a pull yet to see how things are because it's been constantly raining since last night so I can't even get near target but as soon as I do i'll put an update! (same goes for pressure test resaults)

    I have no problems with the seal I installed. My car is daily driven and has about 7000 miles on it since the seal install. Get some large washers (I used McMaster 90107A036 not because they are perfect, I just had four laying around) and the 8mm seal and you should be good to go. Just get it in straight and even, it's not worth a $280 tool for a job you will do once. My sealed ended up about 1.5 mm recessed in the bore because I was more concerned about it being evenly installed than the perfect depth. I did apply a thin coat of black RTV on the ID of the seal bore in the block before I installed the seal though it might not have been necessary. The BMW branded seal is 30 bucks (11117587168). I would just use that because it is made for this application, not that a similarly sized seal wouldn't work, but you remove any chance it won't if you buy the BMW seal the first time.

    I assumed the boost floor for pid was 0 not less but I guess I'm wrong there. We're never going to be able to brake boost like a torque converter without disabling lots of safeties and destroying our clutches in the process but it would be nice if we could at least get some spool by closing the wastegates and just venting boost out the DVs or something

    I doubt this will work due to bolt pattern. You have an 8 bolt crank, where the late 2009 and later N54s (including the IS and 1M) have the 6 bolt. I'm only speculating that BMW didn't go back to 8 bolt. Maybe realoem has he S54 drivetrain listed now.

    I can't speak much cross platform because I am not as heavily vested far outside the n54. But what I will say is even some things possible cross platform are not possible on ours due to the dme. But I will say with certainty that I haven't seen it tuned the way we will be doing it and it's very interesting to me.

    Say what u want to say about Tony but he won't leave u holding ur dick in your hand like RB did to their customers. When compares his product to others, to me it looks like he is very passionate about his work, but the sensetive type get offended. Business 101 is the for sheep, u should be be able to look at the products and customer service over the gimmicks. Tony provides a great service on the forums by sharing his knowledge and opinion. And like I said and will say again, i haven't even seen or heard a single customer who is not satisfied or should be satisfied with his service. And that should speak louder than anything. Even that guy with a photoshopped invoice should be satisfied.

    after today's dyno event where my stock turbos have demonstrated that they are toast (smoke screen, wayyyyyy under target etc), if any vendor can provide a special offer with their current stage two offerings (or stage 2+ Tony@VargasTurboTech) to a user on the other side of the world with a weak dollar (Australia) i'd be most interested in hearing it ;)

    RSL replied to a thread DCT iNA0S Kickdown table testing in N54
    Did another and stayed on it for 3-4 seconds to give things more time to settle in. TPS drops to ~11. Exhaust energy ready when you let off the brake I guess, but WGs are pretty much sitting wide open. I always assumed it built a few PSI or at least held it close to 0psi. Full vacuum was not something that even crossed my mind.

    One nozzle right at the IC outlet. Well, I have not tested the 800hp IC against an out-the-shelf unit. I can tell you that it has 12sqin more cross-sectional area than the Cobb IC, so it will out flow it for sure.
