    Correct, BUT, if you have a look here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=734162 90% of the people with this problem, had it occur when they were giving it throttle AFTER they installed their JB4. I'd say it's a combination of JB4, and the MSD80. All I know is my MSD80 worked for 120K miles until I installed the JB4, then it fried. Not a big deal. Easy and cheap fix, but let's not dodge the problem just because you are affiliated with BMS. :) P.S. Don't get me wrong. I'd go through all the trouble again, just so I could enjoy my JB4.

    It looks like it originated way above the oil pan. I am assuming that is where the head meets the short block. You got lucky if it was the oil pan for you.

    I've heard of people using wastegate as boost activated exhaust cutouts. Should be more durable than the electric ones.

    So this is the third oil leak I have found on this car since I purchased it :( (the other two are AT Mechanics Sleeve and OFHG). I found this while swapping to VRSF DPs. I noticed that there is oil residue all over the rear of the engine. I am assuming this isn't the real main seal nor oil pan gasket. The oil seems to have dripped from the right side of the engine. I have removed the DPs to find the source and it seems to originate from right under the rear turbo manifold. I am thinking it is the head gasket but I want to see if you guys have any second opinions. I have recently changed my oil and coolant. The oil looked like oil and the coolant looked clear brown instead of blue :scared-eek: (however it is clear and not murky). What are your thoughts? Any other possible sources for leaks? I have attached images for your consideration. I can take more pics if you need. Appreciate the help!

    When running a backend map for the JB4 (be it from BMS or spxxx), you need only the $79 "jb4 backends only" fllasher. The full $99 flasher is for running maps standalone (no jb4). You can upgrade the backends only $79 flasher to full fllasher for $20.

    Why does the subject say JB4 problem again? This was a BMW TSB item on MSD80 ECUs. :)

    I agree with you. Blue, white or a combo and if it smells dank make sure you don't have some bud crammed in your exhaust lol :obscene-smokingsom:I was suggesting checking the injectors to make sure they were healthy and not a step away from failure causing hydrolock or any of that fun stuff that likes to follow after an injector fails.

    As with most 1M owners it is with a heavy heart I am selling my beloved 1M. It was something that I thought would never happen but I have a opportunity to get a different rare car and I only have so much parking space. Asking as is $51,000. I am the original owner and have put in all the miles on the car. Current mileage as the post is 54100. Car was my daily driver so maintenance has been kept up to keep it reliable. No issues with HPFP as it was a later 1M produced. Interior is in perfect condition 10/10 Exterior is 9.9 out of 10. Some usual road wear for a car that was driven. Always garage kept is why still looks good. Installed options - Cold weather package - Heated Seats - BMW Apps - Navigation - Comfort access - - Basically all the options Car comes with the following extras besides stock parts. AA Sport Intercooler EMR Charge pipe Burger tuning oil catch can. Stock BMW Floor Mats 1M Orange stitched Floor Mats Car has never been tuned and the bolt-on's were to keep the car running at top shape in CA heat.

    Just want to point out businesses have been refused here. Everyone has their limits. This guy is not ASR Engineering. If he burned people or ruined their cars of course I would say good riddance. Frankly, people haven't even given him a fair shot. Regardless, as stated, he has working solutions on platforms.

    Fwiw if you want to buy a hpfp from a vendor with no proven results it's your fault. What business is going to refuse add revenue? He hasn't burned anyone yet, granted I think his product doesn't perform but whatever.

    Wow you are really taking everything apart to replace the turbos. I bought the engine brace but never needed it. We just pulled out the axle, jacked up the car from the bottom and removed the engine mount. Once this was done there is actually a ton of room to work on the car. Looking good, cant wait to see the logs when finished and dialed in.

    Yes, JB4 does have that feature and "readiness" is only consequential if you have an emissions inspection involving an OBDII scan. Neil

    You would only need the $99 flasher module to flash JB4 blackend maps

    You went for the other ones, eh? I got the more expensive ones because they had a higher rating and I have heard people mention that link. Good to know both are solid though!
