    I just emailed one of my diesel contact that has the ability to flow test, balance, and modify piezo diesel injectors. These are basically the same thing, we will see if he can flow test one of them for us, I will let you guys know what he says.

    The N55 injectors are completely different animals, and have a much lower flow rating according to the documentation. The Piezo's are very hard to control which is why no one has done it yet for the N54 Stand alone

    I was just thinking about this.... I dont know what the dyno looks like for the run where tony was running out of fuel with the double shotgun. Was he pushing 600 whp at 6k RPM.. I'm sure it was something similar to that... that's somewhere around 57 - 63 lb/min of air... which based on the above math would show we'd need what, 475 g/s of air flow for that high end, which divided by the AFR is about 38.72 g/s flow needed over all, which is 6.45 g/s per injector. From there, with 50 injections per second we need 129 mg/strk of fuel @ 6000 RPM. So therefore at 10mpa we'd need 4.478 ms to inject. A lot wider than the 240 deg EOI already, but still less than the entire intake stroke, even if we start at 340 we'd still have 4.7223 ms to end of intake stroke (180 deg), so with that flow rate given at 10mpa we should be able to hit only around 630 whp with the entire intake stroke.... and that's on gasoline. Something does really seem fishy as we've seen those HP numbers with E85, though I know they usually run more of a 13:1 lambda (what ever that equates to in AFR), which helps some but doesnt make up for 1/3 more fuel flow. Something is either pushing that EOI out further than we think already, or our assumptions on flow we reversed engineered from the tables is wrong. Really need an actual measurement of the flow on the injector, either by manufacturer graph vs pressure and pulse width, or by bench measurement.

    We have a design currently in development that will be a big change to what is currently available and should satisfy as much or more then the platform can handle powerwise without issue. The Design will be completely modular and allow for up to 3 pumps in the tank and be all inclusive. There is the whats on the horizon, we will update more as product development unfolds. Thanks! Chris

    Reached out to fastgti69 about a turbo install and everything was going as planned. Due to my car failing smog and unable to get it registered, I let him know that I wasn't going to be able to make it for the install and asked to buy his coolant tank relocation kit so I can get it installed locally on 5 February and for him to send me an invoice. On the 7th, I was told I'll get an invoice but the day came and went without a word. On the 8th, I reached out again letting him know I had an appointment on the 10th to get the kit install and want to proceed with the order. I received an apology on the 9th and he requested my address and sent over the invoice. Keep in mind I've been waiting for an invoice/trying to order for 4 days. I received the invoice and paid within an hour on the 9th so it could get sent out the same day. I live and Vegas and normally get packages from SoCal next day. Last messaged I received was the kit would be sent out shortly early yesterday afternoon. I've reached out a twice yesterday evening and night and haven't heard a word. Never got a tracking number also. I shot him a final message this morning before dropping off the car and still getting ignored :angry-banghead: I have no idea if the kit even shipped. Searched everywhere on the web and cannot find a good working number. Hopefully the kit shows up today, but seriously, I really expected better customer service rather if I was spending $80 or $1k+.

    I bought a STETT cold air intake for my N54 powered 335i. Between the time when I ordered it and when i got it, I bought another project car and decided to leave my 335i alone. I opened the box to inspect the contents but I never installed the intake. It will fit on any N54 powered car, which can be found in the 335i, 135i, and maybe the early 535i. I paid $417.00 for it and I'll sell it for $350.00. Will ship at the buyers expense, but would rather local pickup if possible. Sorry if this is in the wrong spot, I'm new to this forum.

    Don't release the specs Tony. Let the dyno, 1/4, and roll racing do the talking.

    6/6/15 MHD Map Release Adjusted knock tables to reduce false knock, adjusted load targets to undo changes that were meant to reduce false knock that are now no longer needed. Other minor fixes and changes. Added ina0s maps for 335is support.

    Was it ever stated that the BEF adjusted the knock sensor sensitivity?

    I'm pretty sure you can do the same with that unit, but not 100%. Do you mind throwing up a link for the one you use? I'd like to get some sort of data logging system started for later use.

    The back end flash maps are posted to the BB and MHD back end flash map threads on n54tech and versioned so you can scroll through previous versions. There is also a link to the community XDF Hub and TunerPro posted in the same threads. As it says in the threads feel free to do with them what you will.

    When or at what point did you tell us of this or give us an option of choosing to go that route or not when loading the BMS BEF? Maybe I missed it in the change log?

    This would definitely do the trick, but I'd only want to make users use a hardware based solution as a last resort. I have a few ideas I am discussing w/ Martial for implementing it truly "flash only." If they end up not working well, then your idea (with a button combination), would be a solid solution.

    Just came across this - don't normally watch this forum. Would a can-based steering wheel interface help? IE - steering wheel button triggers a relay? I've been working on something else recently that could easily be adapted to this (can-bluetooth bridge for steering wheel to smartphone audio control). I can also write in combinations - vol up and track up = do something else, etc.

    Nothing wrong with water. It will actually help maintain temps in the 225-250 range because it will boil off. It just consumes more fuel. I just foil the bowl and leave it empty. Lots of people put sand in it to act as a heat sink.

    Definitely use the minion method as ATP mentioned. And I use water too, but depending on the outside temp, I'll use hot/warm/cold (hot helps heat things up in the dead of winter). -Rich

    I think part of my issue was the ash. Even with the vents wide open it was taking a while to heat. I always used the water bowl...time to go read more about it.
