    So you remove the filter on the HPFP and install a new one in the hose from the lpfp? Or do you also run without the filter in the hpfp and without an extra one? I have a drilled rail here, but would really like to source the line for the lpfp sensor also. Can anyone sell me one? Im from germany, so it would be better for me to just pay someone for a full line :)

    As long as there is no damage to the frame, sounds like a good deal!

    Just ran it through INPA and none of the airbag modules have any error or deployment history.

    Just got it on stands and dropped the splash shield. Confirmed my suspicion. Front end collision, not heavy, top driver's side impact. Guessing it rear ended a taller vehicle (truck) and slid under it on the driver's side. I'm betting the rear bumper damage was from the car behind running into it. Passenger headlight is factory, drivers side is a repacement. So it wasn't bad enough to take both of them out. They fixed the front end, left the rear as is, and sold it to owner #2 who had no means (skills, location, or money) of maintaining a vehicle like this. Going to see if there was ever even an airbag deployment as soon as I hook up my laptop.

    Your question is a bit vague but im going to give answering it a shot. A single turbo car is going to build boost differently. The stock load/rpm axis's are designed for stock turbo cars that build boost quickly. Thats why you tend to see more rpm rows in the 2000 to 3000 (fuel bank 1/2 for example) range for better control. Typically a single turbo car will hit full boost a bit later so you're going to want to focus on a slightly different rpm range. Its fine to leave the load/rpm cells alone for when you're starting out. But as you'll see, especially when tuning vanos, boost, etc you'll want more control in certain areas for a smoother tune. For an upgraded turbo car, I rework the rpms on several tables and I rescale a lot in the wgdc tables for boost tuning for better control.

    exactly. Usually with lean spool you have to be very careful. i personally wouldnt even touch it unless I was on e85. You can do the same lean spool tuning yourself using the tables you've posted. You're on the right track imo.

    3 weeks ago (by chance) I happened to see a Black 2011 335is w/NAV for sale in San Francisco with 43k mi on the clock, $10k. I wasn't shopping for one, just stumbled across it. My wife and I were headed out to Jamaica for vacation anyhow, so it was merely interesting. While in Jamaica however I checked the ad and it was still there. Surely it was a scam, but I was curious so I texted the owner. It turned out he responded, with the VIN, and a bunch of pics. I ran the VIN through a VIN decoder and CARFAX and everything was lining up with his ad/story: previously wrecked at 30k mi (CARFAX verified), fixed, bought by this guy (2nd owner), daily driven for 13k mi. Paint damage on bumpers and door, missing rear view mirror, non-functional navigation, and the engine needs a valve cover gasket. That's all I knew while reviewing the car ad, and text messages while on the beach. 3 weeks ago (by chance) I happened to see a Black 2011 335is w/NAV for sale in San Francisco with 43k mi on the clock, $10k.

That's all I knew while reviewing the car ad, and text messages while on the beach. I got home and decided to call the guy this past Sunday. We talked and he disclosed his VISA was ending and he had to leave country. He answered all my questions and I was reasonably assured that while there might be other small things wrong with the car, overall it was as described. So I bought a ticket for Tuesday morning to fly to San Francisco from Dallas TX and arranged for the owner to meet me at the airport. I get off the plane and meet the owner, put my luggage in the trunk, jump in the car and go for a ride. It's pretty much as described I got home and decided to call the guy this past Sunday.

I get off the plane and meet the owner, put my luggage in the trunk, jump in the car and go for a ride. It's pretty much as described, but I found a few items and using my iPad while in the passenger seat researched them on the drive. We got to his parking garage and I was able to dig into the car more and make my determination. This is what I found: Both bumpers paint damaged (fixable, simple repaint) Driver's door paint damaged and dented (needed a replacement, ebay said $400 shipped) Driver's rear view mirror housing cracked (ECS says $37 for the pre-painted part) Paint in poor condition (my experience says it'll buff out) Interior rear view mirror gone (owner had it in the trunk) Check engine light on Valve cover gasket leaking Rims have more curb rash than any car ever Navigation non-functional (but everything else works) Slight vibration on initial braking (probably mildly warped rotor) Pulls just a tiny bit to the right (alignment will fix) Dash has a "discoloration" on the passenger side...totally fixable So that's all the bad, how about the good? Unmodified, 43k mi, DCT is perfect, rides great, drives ok, but I feel misfires... I had a tablet with MHD on it so I plugged it in and pulled the codes. Misfire cyl #5 . My spidy senses or telling me that the leaking valve cover has oil contaminated a coil or two and we are seeing the fallout. I can fix everything except the paint for a few hundred dollars. I even have a full set of wheels and tires at home with TPMS sensors installed I can bolt on...no problems there. And I can repair the bumpers without much effort, just a repaint. All the problems seem to be superficial maintenance and neglect issues, so we drive to the bank, transfer funds ($9k) and title and I'm on my way back to Dallas through Phoenix; which is where this story gets its name. I had a 2 day business meeting to make in Phoenix and had to go that way to get home. I just happened to decide to drive an unknown car from San Francisco, through L.A., through the southwest desert, into Phoenix during the biggest heat wave of the last 50y. I saw 113F in south Cali where it rarely ever gets over 95F on a bad day. And entering the western Arizona desert at 10pm I saw 118F on the dash (I didn't get a pic of that :()!! But that wasn't to be the worst...little did I know at the time, but the following day I was going to be in Phoenix when they topped 120F. Guess what? The car never skipped a beat. I used MHD and monitored my coolant, oil and intake temps. Coolant and oil were ROCK SOLID, and while IAT's were off the charts, what do you expect when you are starting with 120F air! The interesting part? When the meetings I had to attend ended, I jumped in the car and started driving to Dallas. My team that flew into Phoenix were stranded because it was too hot for planes to fly. All flights canceled hahaha. Photos coming soon as I upload them.

    I tried when my car was there but apparently a customer that spends around or over 20k at their shop cant take any type of priority when they get a couple sets in. They instead wanted me to wait to make sure the engine was up and running right, then pay for labor to swap the cams. Yeah nope...

    Awesome! Thanks for the examples. That is pretty close to what I did. Another question about AFR during spool. Is there another table that controls fuel when 'lean spool' is enabled? I know that is a toggle in the XDF. Seems like when it is on, AFR can bounce up to 16-17:1 in during spool. It would be great to control that one as well. Though I guess you could just turn lean spool off and do what you wanted in the tables we are discussing above.

    Why don't you buy a set, and tell us. Or didt't the amazing shop that built your motor make all kinds of video posts of a car running with cams in it? What happened there?
