    A friend flashed my 09 135i with the Alpina trans flash and after doing so the paddle shifters stopped working, So I had him flash it back to stock and still not working. Im located in Northern VA, any coders in the area that can help fix this issue please? Thanks ahead

    Are you new to BMW I6's? S38B35 3,453 cc (211 cu in) 252 hp (188 kW) @ 6500 rpm 330 Nm (243 lbft) @ 4500 rpm 93.4 mm (3.7 in) 84 mm (3.3 in) 1986–1988 Hell, you can go back to the M20 or even M10. BMW went undersquare with the S50B32 simply because they could not increase the bore so the stroke was the only place to do it. Starting with the N54 the engines were more about low end torque than revs. They never built these to rev or to race. This has carried over with the N55 and S55 as they didn't want to design a new engine geometry especially when they still were using turbos so they didn't need to rev for power. As far as your comments on V8's, the whole reason BMW went to a V8 in the M3 was because they wanted an oversquare design for racing as there was nothing left they could do with the S54.

    That is with one of their single turbo kits. Have you been absent from the boards for a bit? You should search around a bit in this section to catch up on all the single turbo and upgraded twin kits.

    Wow, not to see the power fall off a cliff after 6K is truly impressive, to me at least. Stock turbos or aftermarket?

    Essentially, yes. Hence the prohibitive cost. The main question (or enthusiast fantasy) is why doesn't BMW design one I6 block (or even a V8) that is more over square? The main reason is emissions and horizontal flame travel, I believe. BMW is a mass producer and those considerations take design precedence over maximum performance considerations, I would bet. Also, over square engines usually have more mass than skinny bore (under square) ones.

    A little more picture love showing what sets us apart from the rest! 100% custom Billet CNC'd High Heat and Anti-wear matched materials with significant dimensional improvements, and entire replacement of EVERY component. This makes RB wastegates replacement program the most robust and comprehensive than any other. :) And yes RB does all component design and machining "in-house" (Haas Equipment: 6 CNC Mills, 2 CNC Lathes; and a Manual Mill/Lathe)- as we ship NOTHING elsewhere to be machined.

    The 5th gear torque limiter isn't a problem with MT cars and assuming this torque limiter is DME related so is there any difference comparing AT and MT bins or are they identical in every part? So the idea here is that could this problem be bypassed just by flashing MT bin to AT car?? And if there's some difference between those shouldn't it be quite easy to find those differencies, right? (just throwing up some ideas) What about those guys who have done trans swap from auto to manual. Do they still suffer this problem? Any ideas? Or is it just TCU related?! If TCU isn't tweaked only thing you can do is tell false calculations to TCU by altering tables in DME, am I right?? This isn't the best way and eventually you may notice some slip in the trans. I have the same issue that mfish does. timing drop at 5th gear only and noticing torque limiter 4. my car is 335i AT i8a0s

    I personally know a bunch of people that never knew this, and many of them have been racing for many a years, its one of those things no one mentions, and almost feels like an insult if you try to mention it to someone else. just be aware of how and where you stage! also tire size will have an influence on this roll out! but that is more of a subject of focus for "stock/super stock" class racing.

    I don't live in the US so it's not a shop you guys know. I took some pictures and I intend to do a write up later. Just need to get it up and running and then I'll be able to solve other issues before I can crank it up.

    Without a full machine shop and cnc mills - you wouldn't be able to really install this into a short block. If all you want is a short block with this installed we can talk. But for us to be willing to sell this setup we need to make sure its installed properly. It's not something that slides in and works. We created a program on our CNC mill that modifies the block, we press and secure the inserts in, and then again mill/deck the block (short summary).

    Still best to do a log for a given time period. I would log the car parked from idle to 3000 RPM as well. You can check lambada on decal for injector leak. If your running rich it likely the injector or the cats as either one will give you rich condition at low rpm. Both 02 sensor go out the same time is not likely but check both front and rear. The rear sensor are used as atmosphere reference. An exhaust leak will give a lean condition only. A defective cam ledge bearing will always throw codes so not likely the problem.

    Lswhat replied to a thread Max Torque Reduction by RPM in N54
    So with that being said, the tq reduction by rpm could have an effect on the tcc unlock during shifts, which was the problem I was having. A higher multiplier calls for more tq therefore unlocking the converter for a longer period, but too much and your into your timing trim/cut for the increased torque loads. What is everyone running for a typical multiplier @ 5k,6k,7k? When I was experiencing issues I was @ a multiplier of 1 and you can see the fluctuating shift rpm and timing. And by putting a taller fd, you will be in your max torque band for a longer period of time, also limiting g the time spent on shifts, and yes being in 1st gear longer then let's say the 60 ft mark. A 4.17 1st gear is almost useless here, and unless we have let's say, 3.73+ gears 2nd gear will be just as useless for launches do to the converter being so tight. Idealistic 1st gear should be some where between 2.6-3.0 and modifying final drove would be the easiest way to get it close. I know some one is definitely following me here, jbacon was spot on. Yes with 2.81s you would cross the finish line @ 128 in 4th @ 5500 rpms 6200 would be about 139. I could see this being an easy 1-2 tenths just from the loss of 1 shift point. On my stockers the power band is similar to that of a diesel with it being in max power/tq from 3500-5000 so my ultimate goal should be to keep it in those rpms for as long as possible. I could also see 60' drastically increasing, especially on the liteweight 135is. Essentially the same concept of putting a powerglide in a drag car. Sorry if I am on 2 different topics @ once here, but in my head they both directly correlate with eachother. Mrpikolo can you chime in here as well
