    Hey guys. Wanted to post an update and sort of a build thread after the Bimmerboost/RB Turbos Giveaway. My car is an 2007 E90 335xi and I've owned it since Dec 2012 (52k miles). Now at 115k miles it seems as good a time as any to finally upgrade the turbos (especially considering the circumstances :naughty:). Can't thank Rob and Sticky enough for the opportunity. Will be switching over to MHD during this install, with V8Bait tuning it. New Stuff/things pictured: RB Next Gen Turbos w/ High Heat Wastegate Upgrade RB EVO Style Inlets RB Oil Drains New OEM Turbo Oil Feed Lines RB Turbo Install kit RB PCV VRSF Downpipes 034 Motorsports Solid Rubber Motor Mounts 3.5 Bar Map Sensor w/ BMS Adapter Precision Raceworks Relocation brackets (Power Steering and Coolant) esb Special ale from Ska Brewing in Durango, CO Odin - Corgi/Australian Shepard Mix Leia (as in Princess) - Brindle Boxer/German Shepard Mix Important stuff currently installed: VRSF Stepped FMIC Fuelit S2 Pump Synapse BOV and charge pipe PTF E50 Tune on Cobb DCI Stock downpipes As the car sits now: Times at Bandimere are a big kick in the nuts fyi. Best time 13.05 ET 109mph Install should be in the next few weeks. I'll follow up once everything is buttoned up and dialed in.

    The B58 engine is a stout mill that is going to be with us for quite a bit as it represents BMW's new modular engine design. As far as tuning is concerned, it responds well to bolt on modifications but there is a fuel cap in the ECU designed to keep owners from taking it too far. Well, good luck with that BMW. BigBoost Turbo is readying a port fuel injection system which should provide the B58 with all the fuel it needs to run their upgraded turbocharger. You can get an idea as to how much bigger their turbo is than the factory unit in the pictures provided. It is very early in the B58 tuning game so it is good to see turbo vendors tackling it.

    Hi, So I had a tail light out and inspection is around the corner. I was curious as to how much it would be and the service advisor quoted $350. I searched and found someone who had success with replacing the Valeo board with a mean-well LED driver. The part is LDD-500HW. You can choose which ever method of connection you prefer but i ordered the one with wires. I ordered 2 for about $20 total after shipping. You can find them here: http://www.ledsupply.com/ or here https://power.sager.com/ldd-500hw-2719565.html See attached photos as it was pretty simple. Take the tail light off, remove the connections, and attach the new led driver with a no solder method. I am sure I could dig deeper and find the connector mate to the valeo board so there is an actual plug and play, but I didn't do it because it is already late at night.

    Want the lightest F-Type on the market? Well, you will want to get the base F-Type 2.0T with the new 2.0 liter turbocharged Ingenium engine. Curb weight is quoted at 3360 pounds but that is likely the European model. Regardless, it will be much lighter than the nearly 3900 pound F-Type R. It helps that the F-Type 2.0T is only available as a rear wheel drive model. The leaner F-Type will be appreciated as the output of the 2.0T is only 296 horsepower and 295 lb-fft of torque which is great for a 2.0T but far less than the other larger V6 and V8 motors available for the chassis. Unfortunately, there is no manual option. The only transmission choice is an 8-speed automatic. Expect pricing to be revealed later this year.

    I have my ethanol tester at home and don't really want to buy one to dunk in fuel tank or pull a fuel line... I used a spreadsheet I found on here and pretty sure i'm correct but wanted to make sure. So I wanted to get into dialing in my car to hopefully dyno either this week or next, and didn't have time to run down the fuel. We wanted a 12 gallon e85 mix but again I couldn't run the tank down further than 3/8 ish (I was able to put 11.1 gallons of e85 in it). Essentially according to my math my 11.1 gallons of E85 added to my previous tank which was 10 gallons E85 and 6 of 93 (total of 5 left in the tank since ours are 16.1) i'm at around an E76 mixture. Since the fuel pumps were keeping up I think we're gonna tune to this mix and i'd just like to know what it is for future fill-ups. If anyones good with this math and willing to help that'd be much appreciated as of right now i've gone in circles and confused myself hahaha

    This drag race features some impressive hardware. Unfortunately, it is designed more for promotion than performance results but that's ok. Just getting these ten cars together and having them all race at once is very cool and obviously a great way to get views. Every car is tuned by German tuner Levella. The cars have their ECU tunes along with the Levella wheels. The cars look great but as you can see with the tires going up in smoke these wheel and tire setups are for looks and not performance. That means the all wheel drive cars are favored. The Nissan GTR takes it. It is followed by the Aventador, 991 Turbo S, Huracan, and Audi RS6. Yep, all wheel drive cars. There isn't any timing equipment employed but still fun to see so many tuned examples go at it.

    The 6.2 liter twin screw supercharged Hellcat V8 is a monster. The 707 horsepower rating already tells you that but the car is underrated from the factory. BoostAddict has seen dynos ranging from 650-670 rear wheel horsepower but never almost 700 rear wheel horsepower stock. This is uncorrected but that just means that is exactly what the car put down without any mathematical correction. What in the world will the 840 horsepower Demon dyno? 800 to the wheels?

    Those lucky Germans and their autobahn. AutoTopNL got to take the new W213 E63 AMG S out and have some fun without speed limits. Suffice it to say, the new E63 AMG S is a fast car. It also hits 300 kph in eighth gear. The MCT transmission is a 9-speed. Compare the acceleration result here to Autoblog.nl's video. The car is just very quick and launches well in the race start mode. Getting up to 300 kph (186 miles per hour) does not take much time at all. The driver goes on to have a bunch of fun on the autobahn hitting 300+ a few more times. The F90 M5 is going to have its hands full with this beast.

    OK, need some help from the community. Have an issue now where intermittently I have something ranging from a minor hiccup to full on feels like a misfire and can't accelerate issue. I can recreate it by being around 2000-2200 rpm in gears 3,4,5,6 and flooring it. It occurs at 2500 RPM nearly every time. I haven't been able to recreate the issue when the car is cold. Seems like it starts occurring after the oil temp is > 160, which doesn't make any sense to me. When I log, I can see bank 2 go a little rich (somewhere between 11-12 AFR) before recovering. Issue does NOT ever seem to happen at 3000+ RPM. Things I have tried: Replaced all injectors with index 12. Replaced all coils with Eldor coils. Replaced all plugs with NGK 95770 @ 0.022" Replaced pre-cat O2 sensors. I do have a post-cat O2 code on bank 2 for aging. This can't be related to that can it? I literally have no idea what else it could be. The car idles fine. Starts fine. Cruises fine. Good MPG. No VANOS codes. I dont think I have a boost leak, but thought about checking the CP o-ring. I have seen a bunch of posts where there are similar issues, some seemed like they were never able to fix. Any other thoughts here? IA80S GC Lites VSRF DP JB4 MHD Pump BEF VSRF CP VTT Inlets/Outlets

    All good things must come to an end. The E90 was shipped back to my buddy's house in New York. While I was storing the car it was a nice mutually beneficial situation where the car got a lot of much needed attention (and free labor), as a by product I had access to use this beast as needed while my E61 was on jack stands for 12 months undergoing surgery. Some Final Thoughts While big single turbo setups personally aren't for me in a daily driver, which is confirmed after getting my wagon back up and running with it's hybrid setup, I certainly see the appeal and the addiction to a big ST car. Once in boost the way this thing covers ground is impressive, it never made it on a dyno but considering the mods, boost, etc. I would guess this thing was right around 600awhp. Aside from some inconsistent ethanol cold starts the engine was flawless, it never had a misfire and never went into limp mode once which is pretty impressive, oil temps would quickly get up to 220-230F but would stay consistently right around 230F no matter how hard I drove (didn't track, only street pulls). The upgraded ER race coolers did a great job. The car was driven hard but never abused, 1st gear was limited to 17psi, 2nd was 22psi, 3rd+ was 26psi, and the AWD system did a great job handling the power. Car was rarely given full beans in first, most pulls were 2nd or 3rd. Traction control never intervened ever since the car always hooks up with the R888s. Spec 3+ and MFactory SMFW never hinted at flinching. With the amount of power and grip available there is no surprise that something must give and near the end of my time with the car there is a slight wobble which developed and my hunch is it's from a front CV with excessive wear. What this thing really need to become a true weapon is beefier suspension control arms, bushings, sway bars etc. to better handle all the forces the car can dish out. Fun car, glad I had the opportunity to work on it and drive it as much as I did. Over and Out, Evan

    Are these the only tables to zero out? And when you say zero out, do you also mean the x and y values along with the table values?

    Lots going on behind the scenes guys. Turns out the DME "learns" a lot more than we all think, and a few of these processes had to be tweaked in order for the flex fuel tune to be 100% seamless to the end user. To answer some above questions... - MHD will have OTS FF maps with a very clever mechanism wrapped around it. - Motiv will be offering FF pro tunes, and also pro tunes bundled with the hardware for a discounted rate a-la the boostbox release. - To whomever said it, yes the custom ASM code has been a ton more work than the hardware. Damn BMW for having 4 different software versions...it's a lot of code to write! @Terry@BMS, the flex fuel DME logic will be an MHD in-app module purchase. It is not tied directly to our ECA as there is really no way to do this. That said, the Motiv ECA I created will be the "officially supported" ECA for the MHD Flex Fuel module. You are free to use your own, but the support for such integration would then fall on the JB4 side.

    All ROM types will be kept in feature parity, no worries :) All XDF releases have been consistent across ROM types as well, with the exception of the WGDC RPM x Setpoint table which does not exist in IKM0S or INA0S. Some custom code will address that situation in the future, but it is not "needed". Flex Fuel and all other custom logic will be released for all 4 ROM types at the same time. For those talking about flashing IJ over IK, not sure why you would want to do this. Flashing IK or IN over IJ would be more desirable. They are a few asm roadblocks to this, however they have been tackled :)

    @jyamona@motiv any news on those tables? I've played around with only 1 of the two pumps active (either or) turns out that even in midrange load, like 50 load, even the single 450 causes the pressure to drop into the 40's. I suspect the system is not running in PID feed back mode until higher load requests and that once the flow gets high enough something is opening up to reduce pressure (likely our FPR) which drops the pressure down at that flow rate until we flow enough to bring it back up. So reducing the base PWM values in the table would get rid of the issue.
