    Today, 05:03 AM replied to a thread M54: RHD m54 b30 turbo build in S54 and M54
    Just a small update, Exhaust system- 2.5" single pipe system from the down pipe back, i'm using two mufflers, one is 18" long, the other is 10", this is going to be a daily(ish) car and i'm only going to be pushing 400bhp max when finished, i want this to be a reliable build so im not chasing big numbers (yet anyway ). there is a section at the front where a de-cat pipe can be used when im at a Track day-Etc. i haven't started the down pipe yet, but im planning on using a 3.5" pipe for this, space permitting. Camber arms - i Took it upon myself to design and manufacture a set of rear adjustable camber arms, being an engineer, and having access to CNC machines, i did exactly that. for 50 i have made myself a set of heavy duty camber arms... WINNER! being me, i also put my builders mark on it Cylinder head- the cylinder head is finished, i just need to work on the lower half of the engine now, i also had chance to fit all of my custom manifold flanges, all ready for tacking the manifold together now one other brief note, i've noticed on a few of the Cam journals (Pictured), there is some light scoring on them, i've used some light sandpaper to polish them, i'm not too concerned this may be a problem, but would be nice for a second opinion has anyone else encountered this?

    No. China is holding it's commitment to the Paris Agreement. As is the EU. Only the USA is running away from it's commitment and promisses.

    Wait. What? Country CO2 emissions (kt) in 2015 % CO2 emissions by country Emission per capita (t) in 2015 World 36,061,710 100% China 10,641,789 29.51% 7.7 United States 5,172,338 14.34% 16.1 European Union 3,469,671 9.62% 6.9 India 2,454,968 6.81% 1.9 Russia 1,760,895 4.88% 12.3 Japan 1,252,890 3.47% 9.9 Germany 777,905 2.16% 9.6 International Shipping 642,024 1.78% The USA is the second most polluting country in the world. The signature that Trump set on the Clexit decreet yesterday will cause more CO2 pollution than 3x the entire CO2 footprint of the Netherlands. That is how insignifficant that signature was. Where do you people get these ideas you are doing so great :confused: ?? How can a country the size of the USA pollute less than Finland, with only 5.5 Million inhabitants? Or Fiji? Fortunately the rest of the world has not lost its marbels, and will continue to uphold the PAris Agreement. Good luck using all your Clean Cole (how come the black stuff is now called Clean Cole). Back to the steam age I presume.

    My mistake, just seemed like something you had a hand in yourself especially with your emphatic defence No idea why you get your knickers in such a knot if you don't have any stake in this product? No need to be so patronizing, but very nice of you to show your true colours "kid" >Childishly abuses others telling them to "grow up" Classy.

    Shifting sooner = sucks for a manual turbo car. I dont even like it for my auto. Honestly would like to have 3.08.

    Whats the estimated pricing for this FMIC ? I've heard rumours in the 3k AUD range. IMO dyno runs to test out a FMIC are useless and I believe if you wanted a FMIC that would hold up best in limited airflow you'd go with something that has greater thermal inertia (i.e. bar and plate). Fact of the matter is the market for people that sit a car on a dyno all day every day is slim. If you can get away with something smaller and cheaper that works good when there is airflow (i.e. on the street/track basically anywhere besides a dyno) I think this is what people will go for. Has an airflow design been completed for this FMIC? I notice that the wagner FMIC's have their airflow modeled and optimised in CAD. The general theory for a turbo car is that you want the shortest path and least amount of volume in the path between the turbo outlet and the intake. The more volume the more pressure drop and the longer it takes to build boost (i.e. greater turbo lag). Just look at the outlet piping for the new b58 engine and how short it is (for example). Nothing against the product just can't see much of a market for it. Turbo outlet temp/pressure vs intake manifold temp/pressure would be nice to see and may help dispel some of the concern around turbo lag and intercooler efficiency.

    Getting back on topic, got the ic's weighed properly today as my scale was a little off It weights 7.78kg vs the wagner evo comp 2 which weighs 7.57kg So not much of a difference considering the shear size of it compared to a tiny wagner and only a 210 gram weight increase

    I see how it would be confusing for you and are assuming again, flinchy grow up kid NOT MY PRODUCT and its not a for a sale thread, so I'm not selling anything, go and bang your head against a wall some more it might finally filter through and you might finally understand.

    Honestly, not at this time. I can't even come up with anything. You are going to be able to help out big time as soon as it's ready though with testing.

    ///MPOSTER replied to a thread Help with my single turbo in N54
    Curious as to how many miles since your install and your boost ceiling. I probably drove no more than 300 miles over maybe 2 months and I started to see issues. (I ran about 17 psi) I had stuck values on the rear O2 (AFR 20). Then I would get bumped to safety for bank variance. Restart and it would be fine for a while and then over and over again. I just got tired of it. Also I had issues with drivability in 4th and 5th gear at low rpm. I absolutely could not floor it or even go half throttle without misfire or hesitation. I couldn't believe how much of a change it was with the new O2 sensors. It felt like stock and pulled hard again when flooring it like OEM snails.

    Mm I'm guessing what you're used to and maybe some advantages in the software finer control etc, given they've always been that type of dyno Wish I could get hands on with a variety of them..

    Oh no don't get me wrong I 100% stand by what I said, I just know it's not going to go anywhere productive with you + others. I love a good forum argument, but not like this :lol: Also, what you call "specialist equipment" I call "standard stuff". It's not expensive. You can build an Arduino data logger <<<$100, the sensors are cheap themselves. It's the bare minimum to sell a product like this imo. It's like a ruler vs a mic, a multimeter vs a scope. And I would like to highlight the irony in:

    So you're trying to sell a product, what I can only assume is a fairly premium product given that it's a large tube and fin you claim (yes the logs too) to perform exceptionally well.. but instead of providing data to prove it once and for all you'd rather customers provide it for you? I'm honestly confused.

    Thanks man! Yeah, it is great! I'm actually thinking of going bigger. This cam drives SO well, I think I can stand a bigger cam (+20whp). You'll have to send me an email on your latest setup. You won't regret going BTR 3. I can lug just about any gear without issue, coupled with tons of tq and midrange.
