    jyamona started a thread Load by Gear - Teaser in N54
    So, the time has come to fill you guys in on something I have been hard at work on, along w/ martial@mhd ;) Aside from defining new tables and building out the XDF's, some of you know I decompiled the BIN into assembly some time ago in IDA Pro and have been studying it, vs. the logic in "IS" car bins. Well, based closely on the "overboost" feature of the IS cars, I bring to you: Load by Gear, tested and working on my regular old IJEOS 135i! It entails custom logic implemented into my IJEOS bin. I8AOS support will come, but is much harder as it's structure is much different. The premise is simple, you set your Load Target to the lowest load you would like to run (1st gear), and then use the new "Load Target Adder by Gear" table to increase this load for subsequent gears. And unlike the "overboost" feature on 1M and IS cars, load does not decay after 1s / timer. This will allow you to put down exactly as much power per gear that your tires can handle. Here is a screenshot of how I had these two tables set up for testing purposes (intentionally slow / pointless stepped load just for demonstration): Worthless without logs, you say? Ignore the sloppy PID, boost, throttle closures in the tune, it is just a base map thrown together for testing purposes :) There is still more testing to take place, and getting it added to I8AOS will take some time, but I imagine porting to the 1M / IS roms should be much more trivial.

    I normally stick to N54tech for support with issues like these but I can't find a solution and need more experts to take a look. Here's the original thread: Codes that are giving me trouble: 2A19 Tank ventilation valvel, input signal 2FBC Fuel pressure control valve, signal Car gets a very long crank and runs like crap, idle all over the place, HP F at 2, and now these codes won't clear. Things I've tried: Swapped with known working HPFP Swapped with known working HPF Sensor Checked JB4 connections a million times and took out completely Things I haven't tried: Flashing back to stock Car will work and then these codes come back sporadically (sp?). When I leave the car sitting for long periods of time, I come back and this happens. I keep thinking I fix it and then it comes back later. When the codes aren't present, logs look perfectly normal. What the hell could it be?

    rac started a thread TTE 550 hybrid twins N54 in N54
    Anyone know what kind of reputation the turbo engineers have in the Audi scene, or any scene? Someone mentioned them in a thread a few days back. Some of us outside the US might need to start taking more interest in European products now due to the aussie dollar going into freefall against the US... RB & VTT have become 25-30% more expensive for us over the last year or so from exchange rate. Some info i have; Genuine IHI Housings & Components Latest TTE Billet Compressor Geometry Optimized Compressor Cover Machining Clearances TTE uprated waste gate flapper and arm with improved bushing Oversize Special Curved Clipped Turbine Reinforced Bearings Dynamically Balanced, supplied with VSR test report Plug & Play Fitment 550 PS Capable Designed, Machined & Built by TTE in Germany Recon/Upgrade from used turbochargers RRP 1847.90 NET Apparently in early testing phase, something to watch. Pics, latter two next to stock comparison.

    If this picture offends you then you somehow wandered onto the wrong website. Our regular readers will understand and even identify with this. Go ahead and laugh.

    Improving on the factory BMW airbox design for the F80 M3 and F82 M4 is not easy. It is not like the BMW engineers do not design efficient parts themselves but they do have to work within a certain budget and with BMW suppliers as well as deal with strict regulations. As we all know there is room to improve on many BMW factory parts including something like the intake system on the S55 motor in the F80 M3 and F82 M4. Gains really show when someone is running a tune or higher boost as the factory system becomes more of a restriction at that point. Look at the dyno results on a Mustang dynamometer here from AWE-Tuning. The aftermarket part and the factory part perform about the same until the motor is past 3k rpm. At that point the S-Flo system provides greater flow on the test car which is running their piggyback tune and exhaust system. At the factory power levels gains will be minimal but this is a mod for that person trying to extract every last horse and remove restrictions. What the dyno results prove is that the factory intake can be made more efficient and this pays dividends as the motor is pushed harder. Is this system worth the $1595 they are asking for it? Well, that is up to you. For the cost conscious the recently released BMS system is quite the value alternative. The AWE piece sure is pretty though and offers OEM fit and finish.

    Today, 01:16 AM I am really excited about the IDEA of this car. From what I have been reading, it will not have a center diff like the STI and EVO, but a clutch based system instead (but supposedly still pretty good). I honestly love the idea of a "hot hatch" with AWD and a turbo, especially coming from the blue oval, but am worried the price may be too high. Is $42k ish (with options) really worth it for a Ford Focus? A loaded Mustang is one thing, but a Focus? Thoughts?

    Just took a look at some RHD steering column pictures looks like it will be a pain to get a downpipe to work. Also my manifolds will work with 135/335 I, IS and XI.

    As much as we would like to make one, there just isn't the market demand for the final drives. The only reason we made the other ratios is because they facilitate installation of an LSD into a welded unit and are the same as the oem ratios (which is what most people want)
