    janebrink replied to a thread Intercooler Design in Advanced Tech
    Hi guys! My first post here and I'd just lite to start by saying: Damn this forum is great! :D So much knowledge about the greatest things in life, BMW and boost! Hope you don't mind blowing some new life into this old thread. I drive a 335dT as a daily driver. I do about 20.600 miles/year in it. Removed my DPF, BMC air filter in OEM box, stock exhaust, stock IC, stock EGR. Boost is 2.7 bar at the peak, 2.5-2.6 when it has settled, (39.16026 psi) mapped by DieselPower in Norway. Dyno says 313.34WHp/573.15WNm. When recalculated for loss over drive train that should give 365Hp/751Nm on crank. (also did a dyno when 100% stock to measure the loss over drive train) Now my IC's given up (leaking), and also the red hose from the turbo to IC. New hose ordered from Forge. But after reading on this forum for hours I still cant decide which IC to buy. Im not gonna spend $1000 on a IC (Wagner, Helix etc.) so here are the four ones I'm choosing between. I know that they are all Chinese crap in many peoples eyes, but I'd like to give it a go and learn from my mistakes.:dance: Plans: EGR removal, IC and plumbing upgrade, separate CCV tank, and possibly a better exhaust. And a remap after all this has been done. So, all you flow and boost experts out there, could you rate these from 1-4? 1st: 26"x6"x5" (core 20"x6"x5") 2nd: 27"x6"x6" (core 22"x6"x6") 3rd: 24,5"x11.8".3" (core 17.71"x11.8"x3") (Big Tom) 4th: 24,5"x11.8".4" (core 17.71"x11.8"x4") (Big Tom) I know that the last two has, how should I put it without hurting anyones feelings, less appropriate designed endtanks. (just as good as a roulette table shaped as a square?) And then some people says that the thicker core on the other models are ineffective in other ways. It would be really fun to get the experts ideas on this matter. Is DBFIU still around spreading the wisdom perhaps? Thanks in advance guys. //Anders

    Subaru, Answer to all that is absolutely. Fully Configurable and full data logging and does work by CAN with the ECU, holds 200 pages. I'm running the ICD plus. Here's a link to Cosworth's description. http://www.cosworth.com/products/racing-electronics/displays-switches/omega-icd/

    Pats, You can order a quesarito at Chipotle (its not advertised) and it's gotta be much better than the Taco Bell version and you won't get the sh!ts afterward, which is nice.

    Oh weird! There were two posts right after I submitted. Here is gist of the original message: That digital dash is awesome! Can you program/customize your own screens? It looks like you can display all of the ECM parameters but can can it do trends of certain variables to watch in real time? Trending boost, AFR, EGT, IAT, etc would be awesome! Or maybe lap times/splits/g-force cornering data would be pretty sweet too. That is way cleaner than a bunch of analog gauges hanging everywhere, how is the update rate? I assume it is all coming in over CANbus directly from the ECM so it should be pretty instant. I have seen some older track recorder units like the HKS "CAMP" unit and it is alright but this looks way cooler.

    It is heat that kills tires at high speed from sidewall flexing at such a high frequency. Also, the stress on the tires goes up exponentially with speed so 167 is much much less of a problem than 200 and 200 is a lot less than 210. That is a good idea to see what those UGR/AMS cars use or what that Ford GT used for the record setting texas mile. That thing was up above 250 for quite a while with 278 top speed.

    You will see a lot of dump off passes to Vareen for the Pats, and Payton throws lots of ducks even without the wind. Denver will run a lot if the weather actually does go as projected.

    Yeah anyone who doesn't make their own tacos is just a poser and can't possibly appreciate a real meal.

    I meant the team but yes when it is windy people tend to throw less and run more. Denver run defense is pretty damn good but the Pats have had more success running the ball this year than Denver unless I am mistaken. People also run the ball more when it is windy especially when your QB is in decline and you slow down on throwing laser beams and now throw lame ducks.

    Wow really? Unless you had issues with the Defiv i see no reason to do this.... Its not like its a turbo kit where it may flow better or have a larger turbo, its a brace, how different can it be?

    M5james this probably goes without saying but just make sure you get all that welding slag out of the runners and plenum. Paint chips in the motor is not good... Welding slag thru the motor :scared-eek:

    This is most likely the same car that raced the Renntech E63, the only details I found were APR stg2+ which is what I think they said the car had in the E63 race vid.

    I don't think it's possible and probably not very safe (see bricking DME). Why not get the Dinan software reverted (taken off) and load the BB Flash properly?

    While family obligations are going to keep me out of the garage this weekend, things are really falling into place for a big push. C&R is supposed to ship the radiator (and return my grille that I haven't seen since March and the intercooler Active made that I have never seen in person yet) in time for a next weekend install. I've spent a great deal of time thinking about the aesthetics of mounting and (detachable) front bumpers and how to tie it all in given the weight of the intecooler with the grille and radiator combined. Add in headlights and a required license plate and my heads been spinning for months. Anxious to get on it and once that's in I can mock up the intercooler tubing. At the same time, I think I've worked out the details of the H-pipe and exhaust. Decided to go with Deed's v-clamps and bushings and bought some 3/16th stainless to make my own tabs. With the delivery from Deeds to fill out what I needed, I just had a bottle of tri-mix and stainless steel welding wire delivered. Anxious to jump on this as well. If all that wasn't enough to keep my thoughts over-occupied, yesterday KMS sent me shots of my digital dash in final testing on my ECM and system and said was shipped last night. In all, I've been working on the design and fabrication of the radiator and ECM since Christmas last year and should now have all I need for a first start as long as I can get it all in. Those pics especially have me super stoked as it's the first sign of life for this project!!!
