    Here is the thing. I can't seem to flash back to stock for whatever reasons. I saved multiple copies of the stock files and none of those work. The ECU keeps on going into recovery mode, and would just crank but no ignition (idrive shows fuel pump error). No idea why, and I tried force rewrite and everything. Flashing back to BMS files are totally fine though, including the ones I modified to re-enable the cat conversion checks. What's weirder is that my dpfix no longer works anymore even at the strongest position (1 o'clock), keeps on throwing 29f4/5 codes no matter what I do. While it worked for one drive cycle at weaker setting... Perhaps the resistor went bad or something... Going in uninstall it and test them out with multimeters or something. At this point I am sick of dealing with this emission BS and just gonna suck it up and throw the stock pipes back on for now. At least in Illinois, the emission test is every two years, so it isn't that bad...

    So turns out it isn't as rosey as first impressions. Still experiencing similar issues when trying to turn up the boost. I got the laptop to connect and set up a map 6 following the suggestions on N54tech. Was still getting some random misfiring like symptoms, most often when going WOT in second or immediately after a gear change. Terry sent me a different flash to try more suited to e85 as he thought the leaner afr might help. But still having the same issues. Looking for any input on these logs. This one felt OK going through third, then broke up badly after the change into fourth and went into limp mode with superknocking codes. Can anyone see why? http://datazap.me/u/nugs/more-map-6-testing-e85-flash?log=0&data=1-4 This one was starting in second trying to replicate the issue but it pulled through the gears except for a couple of hiccups (one of which you can see at 5678rpm in third). http://datazap.me/u/nugs/more-map-6-testing-e85-flash?log=1&data=1-4-11&mark=23 Feedback from Terry and Russell at BMS is to just turn down the boost which I will try with these map 6 settings tomorrow. Does anyone else have any other feedback? Am I asking too much from the turbo? Am I getting enough fuel? is there any hardware I should be looking at to trouble shoot? Plugs are NGK 5992 gapped to .56mm and 4,000kms old. Coils are original and 33,000kms old. Any help would be much appreciated. I have had this turbo on for 6 months now and haven't been able to really push it yet.

    Fwiw those tables are stock on my car and it's been in the 30s in Texas for a few days, on verified E60, with no issues other than Texans complaining about this "cold" (I'm from Colorado).

    I'm not sure what values you need to change, but I spoke with Ken about passing emissions with flash before and he told me to flash back to stock. If you have INPA, I believe you can check readiness there for emissions. Last time I did a flash back to stock it took about 1-2 minutes. But again I installed my BB flash a while ago and not sure if they made any revisions since then. As for "bad file", do you get that when clicking "validate" or when trying to write?

    I fitted my Rev3 and used a simple 6ft printer USB cable. First night of Rev3 was terrible, misfires and horrid running. came to find out 2 cylinders were misfiring bad. bought new plugs and ground down a 14mm 12pt deep socket and replaced all 6 plugs. took for a test ru. And....... Holy crap batman. It runs like a scolded squirrel on acid. Very pleased in how it runs. tried flashing up to V5 but didn't seem to run right. Dropped back to V4 and all is well again. did I do something wrong with flashing up?

    On N54, not seeing that. We have Boost Limit Multiplier and it is one of many boost control tables. Actually, it seems to be very involved.

    I attended my second roll race this year and had a blast. The slipstream roll race events are a ton of fun and if anyone is on the fence about attending one, I can tell you, when it comes to the car scene, there isn't anything else on the east coast i'd rather do. Car shows, caravans, meets, don't compare, these events are fun as hell and the people there are even more fun. You have cars with 2000-400 hp, all makes and models and people that just want to race and see how their cars compare. I really wish more BMW's would attend so hopefully as people realize there are events like these on the east coast, I'll have some more people to run! My first event I went to was this July and I was able to race a ESS 650+ (ACM r package ) Supercharged M3. He was on race fuel, weight reduction, etc. and I was full weight and 93 pump. I lost by 2 1/2 car lengths and was pretty happy with that result:) I really don't care if I win or lose, I like to see how my car stacks up. I was hoping to run a supercharged M that was close to my kit (E600) but never had the chance to. Fortunately, my second event I attended this November had some more cars in my HP class and I was able to get some vid of the action. A litte description of the vid: My first race on the vid is against a 700 hp+ supra, that smoked me, pretty mean sounding car! My second race was against a 570hp Evo X that actually got a slight jump on me at the cones but I was able to reel him in and get him at the end. My last race was against a buddy of mine with a ESS 595 e92 M3. We were both on race gas, both full weight, both DCT. It was fun to run a car more in my HP range. We ran a total of two times, I got him both times, the first run wasn't on this video but I know he has a vid, it was closer than what you'll see here but my car was still adapting to the race gas. We grabbed lunch, I was confident my car was fully adapted and we ran again. That is the run you see here, one view from the sidelines, one view from my go pro on my trunk. As I said...I really hope more BMW's come out to these events, you get as many runs as you can take and its a ton of fun. Great place to meet fellow enthusiasts!:handgestures-thumb:

    This has been "progressing" slowly.... :D Other things in life seem to get in the way of spending time/money on this ;) Got a friend of mine who has already tore down his Europameister E30 M3 to help me yesterday, hes very normal: Drysump tank out: Surface rust under battery: Rear side windows out and started to remove the heater: Worse has been seen on E30's, hopefully salvageable: Small rust dot on the A-pillar: Seems ok here: Some cancer: Garage filling up with parts :scared-eek: Need to get some off to storage: Took the drysump tank apart while taking it out, cleaned it and reassembled: Plan now is to strip the car as soon as possible and then its getting blasted by "Dustless Blasting" (Home - Dustless Blasting). Then Ill get a better idea how much metal work has to bee done.

    So you suspect as time goes on (on the same flash), that the problem will resurface? It will be interesting to monitor it throughout the winter to see if the problem resurfaces. On the other hand, cold weather in the South East is quite different from what those guys face up North, lol.

    Most likely got corrupted some how. Best to keep multiple copies of the stock bin just incase.
