    I leave my rear inlet in place, set the head down, tq it in place, then put the vbands on the turbos before putting the cam ledges in. I have head studs in my motor so I just put two of them in place, and slide it down, all you have to do is just make sure the inlet is pushed back enough. My car has been back up, and running for about 4 days now, its been pouring rain, buteI've put about 60 miles on it. Let me know how this works out

    d21spike replied to a thread My N54 Top-end Rebuild in N54
    Here we go again, today was freakishly warm ... high 50's in the middle of January is almost unheard of around here. As such, I took advantage of that and had the garage door open the entire time. Anyways, accomplishments for the day include: cylinder head installed, rear inlet installed, and charge pipe (hot side) installed. This may not seem like much but I had work early on and then set off to work on the car. I found out the hard way that it's damn near impossible to install a cylinder head with the rear inlet in place while mating the head to the turbos as well as the dowels in the block makes for a lot of effort. Advice from this, don't try to have the inlet on before the head is on and unless you're mechanically capable pull the motor instead of struggling to bolt the turbos to block and have the gaskets align. Regardless that's the route that was taken, inlet came off, head was placed on the block/pins, turbos mated, head bolted down, turbos tightened, rear inlet installed, and charge pipe installed. You'll notice the blue hose, I'm replacing all the vacuum tubing with high temperature silicone. I think this will be switched to black soon. For reference sake the diameter is 3.5mm.

    Now that custom logic is a thing thatnks to @jyamona@motiv , @martial@mhd and prob a couple of others I don't know about, I have a feature request to consider adding to the to-do list or at least discuss, IAT-based target AFR changes. I think a multiplier table based with load x IAT as the axis would be best as we don't want changes at low load. I don't think having RPM as an axis is needed. Even a 4x4 table would be plenty IMO. I've always much preferred to add fuel at high IAT instead of removing timing because high IAT + removed timing sends EGT through the roof. Does anyone else think it'd be awesome to target for example 12.6:1 at high RPM at 60F IAT and a gradually changing target AFR through to say 11.6:1 at 140F for extra safety? I think it would do wonders for post-shift timing drops too because IAT is often high after pulling through a gear and going into the next gear. As a result, the IAT timing correction tables could easily be halved without getting knock at high IAT.

    OT..haven't heard of crankshaft failure, but I and many others have run into the issue of the crank pulley bolt backing out on them.. a B/S reason to lose a motor when it is supposedly torqued to 300 ft/lbs and hasn't been touched.

    +1 JB4 required absolutely no effort vs any other option (not knocking them).. just a matter of choosing the right back end flash file.. and updating the firmware.. crazy to think 5 min after buttoning up the car it was running strong. i did have 1 issue with the fuel scalar initially when I went to turn it up, but even that was solved by asking terry and trying a different already available file

    its pretty straightforward tbh.. and is simply just a series of bolt ons.. unless you choose to make it more complicated than it is of course.. i think the issues people encounter are generally not doing enough research.. or knowing what inefficiencies are in each kit.. or simply what to ask.. knock on wood.. i've been trouble free since i put mine on in july and that was on an lkq motor with >100k miles.. and it is my daily.. for me it really has been plug and play.. without any custom tuning.. i made sure i changed out what i found inadequate if you wanna "push the limits" and run around on >30psi often with any of the common turbos used on a stock motor well yeah that is probably a cause for concern too, i don't really know any that have lasted. for the most part i think people know the risks at that point..

    Anyone got any small/cheap mods they did to their cars that made a huge difference? Ive done stuff like M3 tranny mounts, diff lockdown bracket that didn't cost that much and made driving a whole lot better. Hell even putting on studs made switch wheels so much easier and faster.

    Almost 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels from the factory S55 turbochargers? That is what DME Tuning is claiming based on their Dynojet run although they did not post the whole run with the correction factor. One of the limitations with relying on Instagram to provide the whole picture. We do not have the whole picture here but we do know is the a JB4 + DME Tuning S55 ECU back end flash stack. This is a popular recipe in the N54 tuning world but we are seeing more and more of it in F80 M3 and F82 M4 tuning. It's hard to argue with the peak figures here but no log is provided along with no boost readout or correction factor. When making claims like these it is best to provide too much data, not too little. What else do we know? The car has downpipes, an MSR intake, MSR charge pipes, and a stock exhaust system past the downpipes. They claim 100 octane race fuel with no methanol injection. Hopefully more details and data emerge.

    I dont think they are doing anyone a "favor" at those prices...definitely not me. I can have a set custom cut to my own specs for less than $3k.

    I bet it would hurt more than you think. Thats money and time sitting on the shelf churning at your bottom line every quarter. No company wants to see that whether it one unit or one hundred. Happens long enough someone gets smart and lowers the price to a point they start moving off the shelves. Then they realize what there product is really worth.

    Wanted to keep everyone updated. The n54 gods must really hate me lol... I replaced the cyl 5 injector last weekend and while I was in there decided to do all 6 plugs. Cyl 6 plug threads had a ton of oil on them so i'm thinking valve cover gasket. My cyl 5 misfires are gone but now i'm plagued with cyl 6 and it's terrible. Even light throttle babying the car it's stumbling not just WOT high boost like misfires usually are. So anyways now i'm waiting to get it in to the shop and do the valve cover/leakdown test and then if all of that's good finally back to tuning and dyno
