    veer90 replied to a thread Official WOTBox Install DIY in N54
    At the time, the only upgraded mounts I had were transmission (UUC black), rear polyurethane diff and subframe mounts (SuperPro), and the revised BMW guibo with an aluminum body and smaller rubber bushings. Motor mounts were stock. After the slipped hub got fixed I upgraded to polyurethane engine mounts (ADE) and will be running a SMFW and upgraded turbos. Can anyone in this thread send me a RPM log of their 2-step in action? It's possible the WOTbox itself may be faulty / screwy since I bought it used and have no reference as to how it should behave.

    Is there a clear walk thru of the steps to flash st firmware using MHD/jb4 I want to make sure I do this right. I saw one thread on n54 tech but either I'm slow or it's extremely vague.

    Ditto on the rear bar. Harold at HP autosport use to disconnect the rear bar when tracking his old e90 shop car. I run the e93 m3 front sway, rear is stock.

    If it is what I think, it'll just need a DME flash which are not yet available for the B58.

    So you think the fueling limitation is something that can be raised by a tune like a jb4 or would it have to be an add on?

    Here is a quick experiment from turbolabs, stuffing 20g wheels in s55 turbos, they already had a smaller upgrade before for less than 3000$.

    Sered replied to a thread E89 Z4 Vargas GC Build thread! in N54
    I apologize for not getting dynos done sooner. A lot of crazy stuff has happened in real-life, some really good and some really bad. I'll keep it short for now, but there's very few people I've talked to at length with this. The bad: My E90 is dead and buried; I'm lucky to be alive (flipped 6 times -- my fault). I don't think I need to explain how depressing this is for anything car related. First at-fault accident for me ever, have been driving for over 20 years now including many other powerful cars. The good: I've gotten a promotion of sorts at work that involves a lot more traveling to London. I was there for 2 weeks in December, late Jan/early Feb, and leaving again for 2 weeks next Monday. GCs have had some miles put on them as my gf dailies them. She's crushed a couple Porsches and Vettes on the interstate apparently :) I tend to take the car out for a spin every now and then to make sure everything is perfect tune-wise, etc. And so far so good, there's no evidence of anything amiss on the car; runs like stock but makes about 300hp more. These are definitely the most obvious turbo upgrades one could have on a car though. They sound like diesel turbos almost even at light throttle.

    Update My car is in the paint shop until friday, getting a repaint to 2015 ford tuxedo black metallic. So Richard & I put this on hold until then. He wanted to move our trouble shooting over to the spool street forum. If you want more details, have a look at the same post there. I put the tee before the fav not after. But right now I have returned the system to how it was to get it working. I will figure out the conversion to TBI after everything is working in stock configuration. I realized that I may not be getting a waste gate signal, since I switched to single turbo & am now using a GBF controller. I ordered the new motiv boost box, which should solve this problem. But I see when any questions about the shipping date are asked on that thread, they are ignored? So hopefully they will be able to ship around the promised date.

    A SSR should also be able to handle the inductive load of the motor, yes. I've seen 30 amp version of those for cheaper than that too, so you could use two of them and tie them in parallel. The issue I see is that the release time rated on that particular unit is 0.5 ms, so it might not work at the PWM frequency. Usually most DC motors are run at at least 8khz, but I've seen PWM control of motors go all the way up to 100's of khz, likely it depends on the inductance of your motor, if you have a really low inductance motor or you're spinning really high RPM I bet they run a higher PWM frequency. I have no idea what the stock unit runs at, would be interesting to know. And yes it does help with not needing a FPR, but at the same time a boost referenced FPR isnt such a bad thing. To me its really about keeping stock control and not just running the second pump on/off which could cause heat/priming issues.

    berns I'm surprised you bar'ed the rear end. Are you concerned about the additional understeer into the car? Typically we recommend to leave the factory bar in the rear, and bar the front to dial out understeer.

    Personally we recommend KW because its the best bang for the buck. Most people aren't hard core enough (or want to spend the big cheese) to fully be able to appreciate JRZ, AST, Ohlins, Moton or Penske..... or know how to tune them, know what feedback is needed to tune them, be willing to dissemble/revalve/have a nitrogen system to recharge/etc and understand the cost associated with that. If you're going for more than just a plastic trophy and are a professional motorsport team or car- spend the 10K on shocks. If not, Clubsports IMO are phenomenal in the "install/adjust bound/rebound to your liking and drive the wheels off of it" dept.

    Just to make sure I'm on the same page, is the point of the PWM so that you wouldn't need a fuel pressure regulator and return fuel line? And would this unit just be used to duplicate the factory PWM signal? If so, what frequency does the factory PWM signal operate at? 100hz?

    In an earlier post you mention that you prefer KW coilovers, do you mind elaborating why you prefer them over other brands such as Ohlins, AST, etc? Coilovers are in my future at some point, and you've had a career that's given you a unique level of exposure to a lot of setups.

    Looks like the price is going to be pretty phenomenal - 1300 EUR just to get rid of some noise sounds painful Unless it does get proven to also add reliability...
