    I'm one of those guys that can't stand Alpina D mode so I tried literally all the alternative trans flashes suggested on the forums. Looks like we'll have some custom flashing options in early 2017 but until then..... I had been running 7601494 for probably over a year and I thought I found the best compromise of them all. But it seems that was all the placebo affect. Personally I'm back on the 7601492 OEM flash. But I just wanted to let everyone know that on my 2009 E90 AT xdrive the 7601494 flash would slip in certain circumstances and was probably sending back funky values to the DME making it very hard to tune. I thought it had to do with the load to torque tables all along but it was really because I was running this flash on my trans. It also exacerbated my 5th gear torque limiter. I just figured I'd share so no one else makes the same mistake I did. Log of what I'm talking about is below:

    Yea, but the ER setup was back in 2010 -- Tuning was very different, I mean 439 WHP with a GIAC flash (ehh), exhaust, intercooler, intake, intake manifold, meth injection and stock turbos. Now we can get those numbers on 93 octane without meth, mid-400 WHP on stock turbos with E85, and if you through turbo inlets you're closer to 500 WHP on stock turbos. Also, zero data about the design -- runners, inlet location, flow characteristics, etc.

    I know the spot's not new (feel like 98.7% of TaiBoogie's videos are filmed there), but it's a fucking disaster -- People standing on the shoulder and cement center divider, cars on the shoulder pulling out in front of cars, etc. But really, there isn't a better spot that this?

    They have been racing at that spot under the bridge for years. its not new or anything lol. there are various places up and down the east coast where they prep highways like that. the "chase is a race" is a rule that is usually negotiated, but isnt applied to every race. Mainly, those who want to hustle will do that in an attempt to leave early with a head start, and get the jump "fairly". if the other car goes, its fair game if the "chase is a race" thing was agreed to. Street racing is 99.9% always a hustle lol. oh, and regarding the people in front of the cars racing down the line, that is retarded. i know a lot of very very fast cars that run on the street and wont unless its clear in front of them and everyone is behind the start line....maybe a car or two at the finish recording, but thats it. Many times ive seen cars get out to the spot, and line up, only to call it off because idiots and onlookers want to park on the sides and line the spot with people and cars.

    So here's the load at 185 dyno run. If you compare this against last run you can see where WGDC base crosses WGDC PID around 6000. Here its narrowed the gap and moved to 6500. I also increased p factor a slight bit above 6k. I'll probably bump that up a bit as well. No changes made to WGDC Base or Adder It had a bit of correction on 1 and 3. So we'll probably do 190 next so I can make sure its not correcting. Im thinking if I raise it to 195 it should fix the problem.

    We got down to -20 deg F here last night, programmed the tables and reprogrammed my PI to not inject fuel under 500 RPM. In the morning in the garage the coolant temp was down to 30 deg F, pushed clutch and pressed start, boom started right up. hurray! And hopefully no warm start issues either, but that remains to be seen.

    Not to mention that some of these new manifolds move the throttle body location, which means an expensive custom chargepipe and probably some other hassles related to moving stuff around.

    Head ports measure 29x50mm, the perfect size (area) to feed 2x 31.4mm diameter valves, BMW have really done their homework here so don't expect to improve anything (other than losing low end torque) by hogging out the intake ports.

    It would be nice to see someone enlarge the head ports and then machine a manifold to match on a built head and see if the results were there. I would get one if it allowed DP meth. But I think a sandwich plate will be the best solution for me and most people who want to run DP meth. I think motive said they will offer a cast version which should be ALOT less than that whole manifold made out of billet. edit: I thought 2016 was supposed to be the year of 1000whp N54s? What happened?

    Honestly not really getting this trend either. We have the Docrace one, it showed very small gains, in my opinion I wouldn't do it again. The amount of work needed to get it fit, with cutting harnesses, making new charge pipes, getting rid of front stock location inlet etc, is not justified by the gains or cost. It also makes the car very hard to work on, on that side of the motor. I prefer the factory style for ease of service. Maybe we will see more gains on a fully built, and ported motor remains to be seen, then it may be worth it. The Docrace Mani will be going on that motor so we will see, but for the average Joe making 500-600WHP, intake manifold should not be on the list of upgrades to make.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of doing LS swaps into Porsches, but this might be the exception. Really think the clean fab work, like the top mounted intercooler, just make it more "right". Symmetrical = Winning Eager to see how this progresses and he's 100% spot on that this is the more cost efficient build. EVOMS quotes ~$30k for "mild" 1,000 WHP motor builds, plus another ~$20k on the trans. Instead, just combine a TT-LSX with a Ford GT Ricardo and a you've got a recipe for a potent and tough platform.

    Myself and Kenny have suffered with the same issue, piston ring failure. His was slightly worse than mine though this could be down to more boost. Im not sure how toolman has ran his for so long without this issue maybe there is a difference between UK and U.S. Engines? i wouldn't be bolting one to mine if it was me till I knew this piston ring issue is resolved
