    The Convert replied to a thread MHD Tune by MOTIV in N54
    No one will pull any Motiv kit to run hybrids, except you. Everyone else will stick with their single and get the tables tuned and locked by the Jakes. Who cares if they're locked so long as they revise them based on logs when needed. If people don't like it, they can make their own maps. Seems pretty simple to me.

    Unless wedge isn't a person, then your logic is illogical.

    Given all the recent twin turbo developments you'd think they'd want to do anything they could to help their customers spool better before kits start being pulled and sold. But I've already said my peace on the whole thing.

    Very old. I used to run them 15 years ago. Comes in all sorts of sizes, good in wet and dry weather, especially good in rolling races IMHO.

    Except they have locked it. Most likely due to all the vanos sharing that happened a couple of weeks back...

    I went out to start my car yesterday to go get some wine for a diner party at my neighbor's house. I fired it up and the idle was oscillating between about 800 and 1400 rpm. The pedal was unresponsive and the car was undriveable, but don't worry I had emergency wine downstairs. I took the following log this morning http://datazap.me/u/ajm8127/idle-oscillation?log=0&data=3-16 The following codes were present 2f9e - Thermic Oil Level Sensor 2cec - throttle positioner, stuck for an intermediate time 2ced - throttle positioner, permanently stuck 2d09 - Throttle valve 2cee - throttle positioner, sluggish 2cfe - throttle valve, continuous adaptation 2cfb - throttle valve adaptation value The oil level sensor code I believe to be unrelated. I was parked on a hill about a week ago and the "oil low" indicator popped up in the cluster. I confirmed my oil level was not low once the car was on level ground. I reset throttle adaptations which had no effect. I checked all the fuses behind the glove box and all were good. I stumbled across SI B12 01 08 from 2008 titled "N52 EDK Throttle Jamming Faults 2D09, 2CED and 2CEC":SITUATION Immediately after starting the engine, the Service Engine Soon lamp is illuminated and the engine enters power reduction ("fail-safe") mode. The EDK (throttle) has failed the start-up test due to binding or jamming. In these specific cases, the vehicle may have been parked for an extended period of time in a freezing climate. It was about 10 F during the day here yesterday. I have INPA on my laptop so I took it out to the car and tried to move the throttle plate with the software. The two encoders which provide feedback on the position of the plate did not change value. Looks like the plate was stuck. To confirm I removed the throttle body and sure enough ice was present in the throttle body and charge pipe. I cleaned everything up and let it thaw out. I plugged the throttle body back in and I was now able to move the plate with INPA and the encoders were changing value like they should. I put it back together and the car idles and drives normally with no codes. I decided to take everything apart to confirm the plate was stuck due to ice. I also disconnected the battery for about 2 hours while I was doing to work. I probably could have lightly tapped the throttle body with a hammer to loosen the ice. I am not sure if disconnecting the battery helped by resetting the DME once the plate was freed. I can only assume the cold weather caused water vapor from blow by to condense in the intake tract and then freeze. I just wish it wasn't fucking 19 F outside today.

    555Rs are IMHO the best all around tire for high HP drag oriented applications.

    Not sure what your question is. Are you saying the belt slips using the auxiliary drive belt? I think there will always be some slippage in any arrangement but as I have said before there is enough grip for 11lbs boost and I don't have a problem with belt durability. Also running a dedicated belt really isn't an option.

    Welcome, you have much to learn. Stick around, its harsh here, but the people actually REALLY know what they're talking about. Percentage of blown motors per tuner, Wedge performance is by far the highest. I'll leave it there.

    It's gotta be the wake up command from the CAS then. In addition to power pretty much all the modules need to receive a wake up command. It's either sent via can or there's a specific wire for it. (There's a wire for the DME for example.) It's clear FRM isn't waking up but why is the question. FRM does OBD as well as lights. I'm not sure how the wake up wire works it might temporarily ground, but you find out you might be able to wake up the FRM manually and get some fault codes. You can always confirm this by checking the 12v going to the modules. If there's power but no response from the modules its gotta be the wake up.

    Mine is 2007 RWD MT E92 with 06/07 build date. Is it as simple as just switching to dcan cable? I have one on hand. It seems as though no power is even going to the OBD. No headlights lights , no dash lights besides time, no horn only I-drive and central locking system less comfort access.
