    Copernicus proved it. Galileo challenged the church regarding it.

    Rob I don't need these problems. You've been a vendor for how long and are going after BimmerBoost vendors? I'm removing from this thread. It really isn't that hard for you two to simply leave each other alone.

    Dzenno, I think you should post this thread on E90 as well. The people on this forum are usually a little more tech savvy, the people on E90 are the ones who are really swallowing the 600WHP results on an inline 255, on these "new" tunes without any knowledge of what is really going on behind the scenes. I am sure it will be met with some opposition, but hey Galileo was thrown in jail for proving the earth was round. The truth will catch on, if more people know about it. I thought I knew a lot about the boost control system, and I learned some stuff reading that post. It really is a good read.

    All trolling and nonsense aside, do the PCV valves work better than stock valves? Will they provide me a boost leak free experience? All that I care about is that the answer to both of those questions is yes. Regarding the "own idea" comment, they both sell modified turbos and none of the changes they are making are unique to the turbo world from my understanding. They may be new to this platform but they are proven methods of increasing turbo efficiency and life expectancy used by plenty of other platforms (correct me if I am wrong on this but that was my understanding). If you recall also Tony's HPFP solution was pretty unique and is definitely not something he just borrowed from someone else. Innovation and improvement of current products is just as important (if not more) as inventing some solution from thin air.

    You have 24 hours to make right the above as politely requested yesterday, OR we will post our own thread illustrating clearly your deceptive marketing ourselves. Thank you in advance, Rob

    Big brother versus little brother. V12 versus V10. Lamborghini versus Lamborghini. That is what we have here as our Russian friends managed to pit the Lamborghini Huracan against the Lamborghini Aventador in a standing kilometer drag race. Who would not want to see that? The Lamborghini Huracan is obviously smaller, lighter, and less powerful. The 5.2 liter V10 of the Huracan on paper puts out 610 horsepower which means it gives up just about 100 horses to the Aventador 6.5 liter V12. This particular Aventador features and exhaust and tune said to put it at 730 horsepower which is well within reason. The Huracan does send its power through a dual clutch transmission to all four wheels whereas the Aventador uses an ISR (independent shift rod) unit. Both cars obviously have all wheel drive. The Aventador has more power and torque but it also carries about 650 more pounds of weight. On paper this should actually be close with the Aventador having a top end advantage. The Aventador gets the jump off the line. It holds its lead through the standing kilometer. As expected, the Aventador has the higher trap speeds but the Huracan is very close. With some mild tuning the Huracan can close the gap. 1/4 mile: Huracan: 129.71 Aventador: 131.15 1/2 mile: Huracan: 160.00 Aventador: 161.74 Kilometer: Huracan: 170.23 Aventador: 172.73

    Took it when I got up. I just cleared my driveway, 25 yards x 8 yards x 2-4 feet of snow.. hurt my fookin bad foot though... dohhhhhhh Used shovel and electric snow plow, but next time I will buy a GAS powerful plow ! The plows here for the town of Quogue sweep MORE SNOW and ice into my driveway as I am on a corner......... this really pisses me off

    Very nice to see tuners from both ends of the spectrum taking an interest in the new tuning methods being employed. I am sure there is an interest in publicly showing these tunes as less than safe (putting it nicely) from both parties but as a consumer I am intrigued. I am pleased that end users will be able to reference this thread to understand the various tuning methods, a more educated base of consumers will benefit everyone. I will not pretend to understand the in's and out's here. Dzenno's OP was very educating, more posts like this make it easier to sift through the marketing hype that plagues the forums (mostly that other place since the average user there is less technical) day in and day out.

    Yeah, sapphire black is great. Once saw a blue black on an 6 series that is my favorite black hands down.

    Thanks for the questions. As to you answer, clearly it has been stated that fueling is an issue. Once that is sorted, via PI, then yes.... As for the turbo hardware employed here, it is barely breathing at a sub 50% WGDC while making far more than record levels. So from our perspective, the RB Turbo hardware combined with TFT inlets has proven to be the best known combination of components that are available today. But again, supplemental fueling IS needed to run like this everyday, sorry if that was not presented clearly earlier. Any more questions feel free to ask. Thanks, Rob

    Sticky you have now invited the fox into the hen house, and guess what? Day two you have to lay down new rules because he has gone on a trolling rampage. What did you expect when the guy who uses his one post a day to troll every single day now has unlimited posting ability. I want him blocked out of every thread we make until you program in the features for removing people myself. While you are at it remove this guy above as well. I come here to conduct business, right now its the equivalent of showing up to first period in Jr. High, and dealing with the kids sitting in the back of the class. Its honestly not acceptable.

    They try to modify their M3 halfshafts to fit into my car so you can kind of tell its a hackjob. The driveshaft though needs to be built from scratch and consumes more of their valuable time.

    Good to know. I have a 2011 that is supported with the AP. I really need a protune, the OTS maps leave a lot to be desired.

    1. Rob, is this tune that they're using to make this record dyno safe to run? 2. In your professional opinion, do you think that If I was to run this same tune/turbo setup at a track day there would be any catastrophic failures?

    It's basically the same environment as the N54. Except that its very turbo limited so higher boost targets are less of a concern. The Cobb software is also less limiting for the 2011 models that can be flash tuned. You can target up to 20psi at any RPM no problem. It's still load based which is annoying as the set point can move from 15psi to 20psi during a run where IAT goes from 50 degrees to 130 degrees. On the JB4 end that's easy to manage but if trying to do boost control on the flash side it could mean a lot of work fine tuning the duty cycle and PID tables if you actually had a turbo on the car capable of hitting 20psi or even 15psi at redline. But overall its workable. One thing I do like is you can adjust load points per gear, like we do on the JB4 end. I wonder if the same functionality is there in the N54 DME waiting to be exposed by some flash tuner. There is no flash tuning for the 3/2012 - 2013 E Series vehicles.

    I know this post is about the N54 specifically but does it all apply to the N55 as well? I know there are some differences in the way the N55 works because of valvetronic (the throttle blade is used differently I think) but is boost control all the same?

    Here is the difference, XXX post a record dyno with new TFT inlets and claims it's THE BEST THING EVER!!!!111!!! VTT post a record dyno but post that its an all out map that nobody should ever run.

    Well the S52 bore x stroke is different than the M52 although they both have the same basic iron block. The M52 and S52 are closer in capability than the M62 and S62.

    Myself with help of Russell @ BMS designed a completely independent PID system that IMHO is more elegant and better than the factory one. So I'm pretty familiar with the nity-gritty details. :) Just post up one of your Cobb maps and I can verify my suspicions on how the tuning is being done. I'm not saying all your cars are going to blow up tomorrow and given the environment you placed yourself in was probably your easiest option. But there are much better and safer options out there available to you. But I digress, before anyone hurls any insults or innuendo, let's discuss all get on the same page of what exactly is being done. Maybe I'm off base and what you're doing is perfectly acceptable.
