    the "clean" runs, to me, show post shift timing drop hurting the bmw.. id say even without the added weight/lower boost factors, it was a good set of runs.

    10's will likely be had by an n54 1 series here in Ohio once his super RB's are installed. I think he was around 11.1 on slicks with his old RB's.

    V8Bait this is per the DMV "For vehicles of model year 2001 and newer, the Maryland VEIP allows one (1) non-continuous monitor to be not ready and still be tested. Two (2) or more not ready monitors will cause vehicles to be rejected, and owners will be asked to return for testing after one week of normal driving." "Note: Vehicles failing for Catalyst or Evaporative diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) must have the applicable readiness monitor(s) set upon return for a retest in addition to meeting the standard readiness requirements (1 or 2 not-ready monitors allowed)." I read that as you can fail one monitor. The "note" part i'm not quite sure on. Sounds like if there is a cat related code, I still fail? That would be odd as I know for a fact someone who has passed with a STG2 map, which in theory would not allow the cat monitor to report a ready state. Ugh so confused at this point :confused:

    I think the next N54 to break 10s more likely will be a N54 DCT and it wont need an ST or some big massive muscle bound guerrilla turbo(s) to do it.

    In MD you can fail one monitor- does not matter which. Could you expand please? Sorry if i'm being dense...long ass day. So if I flash to a STG1 type map, I'll fail the cat monitor - but evap etc will report a ready state? Not gunna lie I was hoping you'd respond. Thanks dude :D

    A group buy the new platform is going to be hard, very hard. That said, can you send me details and pictures so I can get you guys an article out of this? Pricing as well.

    93 octane. Perhaps once we are done toying with E85 on E46 M3 and E9x M3 we will find a test mule for E85 on the M4 but, I don't want to get ahead of ourselves. I am not sure if this is a positive or negative things for you, but either way we are happy with the overall results. I am sorry for getting in here so late. We really have a lot going on. As for the set up, we have a handheld OBD2 piggy back system, which will come with our tune. It will also allow minor parameters changes to be done by the end user while keeping it under our scope of limitations and tune. The dyno above is a custom tune because it was done in house on our dyno. However similar results may be expected on a stock car running 93 octane. If we get 10-15 individuals that are willing to commit, we can do a group buy etc. Justin-

    I always like how people predict the out come of the races when they know nothing of my car. The 2nd run where I 'left off, I hit the rev limiter and car went into limp mode.

    Do they give you a free monitor? If they do you don't need the dpfix, you can disable codes with Cobb, the catalyst will just be not ready.

    n54 with bigger turbos or single turbo is a roll race monster, not for dig race in my opinion

    you can use this tool to check out all your options.... http://www.bmwarchive.org/vin/bmw-vin-decoder.html its the april build date and later that there was an error in M sports getting the option. some long thread I read. As I could not believe I did not have it which means I can't pass 130mph either. And I have the 18" Msport 193 wheels...which was supposed to generate the aux cooler and higher speed but somewhere in april there was a glitch with options selected and the car was not built with it. my build date is 5.14.2011

    Due to the unique configuration and requirements of the Stage 3 assemblies these pose a problem for international customers with Euro spec cars. To accommodate those customers we have begun accumulating Euro cores and currently have 3 making their way across the pond. :awesome:

    Just testing some stuff out. I revamped the banner system so I don't have to manually make code changes to 40+ templates whenever a vendor joins or leaves. If sarcasm text existed I would have never been banned from a forum.

    So I've been reading a lot of threads about this between E90post and here, I even experienced the problem my self after installing the inline 255. For me the problem was that I got fuel into the vent system which then caused the tank to not properly vent and pull a vacuum when pulling fuel out of it and it wouldnt fill all the way due to too high a pressure. The problem was solved when I blew the system out and put a hose clamp on the offending tube that was leaking. That aside, as I dont think its what most people are experiencing here, the system seems to use some equation on the resistance reported between the two floats (as the passenger side of the tank holds more gas than the driver side) to get the fuel reading. Based on the values that people who have taken measurements are reporting from the floats, the floats appear to be fine them selves, however when they are in tank something is amiss. Given that the electrical connections for the floats are exposed to the fuel, I'm wondering if there isnt some parallel resistance that is reducing the seen resistance by the DME, this would seem the most likely to me given my EE background. I suspect that something in the steveAZ kit may be reducing the resistance of the fuel its self for a short period until it is "flushed" out by running enough fuel through the system, like say the heat shrink has some chemical that comes off of it in the ethanol that reduces the resistance of the fuel (some ion or the like) until that chemical is run though the system and no more added as its been stripped off by the ethanol and flushed away with enough tanks of gas. Or maybe us screwing around in the gas tank and getting moisture into the ethanol off our skin (sense its so hygroscopic) does the same, or even perhaps some ethanol its self simply has a lower resistance.... Anyways, the point is that to know this for sure we need someone to measure the resistance of the fuel per unit length (so fix 2 volt meter probes 1 inch apart) and measure the resistance of the fuel in the tank at the time of failure vs at a time of no failure (make sure its near the floats POT (where the wires attach to the float). If they are the same, well then we've at least eliminated the idea, if its not then given that measurement we can come to a ball park idea of what the parallel reported resistance of the float would be and it might explain things. Only a theory, needs data to back it up, but I see it as plausible. The only issue I see with the theory is that it explains the 3/4 report, but the 1/4 report at empty means that one or both of the floats is reporting a higher than expected resistance, which this would only explain if the car has a calibration that it re-set to report empty at a different expected resistance than simply both the floats at about 50 ohms. I know that there is a "fuel scavenger" port on the driver side that is also supposed to help the pump pick up fuel, and from screwing with all those tubes recently it looks like that fuel scavenger is supposed to allow the fuel on the driver side (which is higher than the passenger side) to siphon into the passenger side of the tank so the fuel pump can pick it up. Perhaps there is something going wrong with that such that the driver side reports it has fuel but the passenger side reports empty and thus you get a 1/4 tank but go empty. That however doesnt line up with with the reports that the tank then took a true 17 gallons (true empty). The other 2 possibilities that I can come up with are: 1. The new pump puts out a lot of EMI which then induces a current on the passenger side sense lines and causes a miss read of the resistance for that float (if this was the case you'd think it would be more consistent, not just a passing thing that some people see) and 2. the circuit that reads the resistance of the floats draws its reference voltage from the same source that supplies the current to the pumps, thus by increasing the fuel pump current the reference voltage drops which then messes up the reading until it re-calibrates its self (assuming it does so), but we'd really need to see the circuit diagram of this whole part of the system to know that. Those are my thoughts... really muddy water here, need data to make things more clear.
