    My NGK 5992's have been great. Will be using them again.

    I agree, the best part of this thread is that you and Tony have been mostly in agreement. I think it shows you both do know what you are talking about (regardless of the the random drama between you two). I wish OP the best and look forward to results but I remain skeptical. I also have an engineering background and read a whole lot about turbo technology and have researched and even used Kamak/kinugawa turbo combos because they are taiwanese and will build you whatever the hell you ask them to. Some work better than expected and others plain do not work in practice. I can say that the major turbo manufacturers have put a lot of resources into selecting compressor/turbine combos and if it hasn't been done yet then there is USUALLY a reason why. Not to say that no one should try out their own theories themselves, just that one should not be so cocky. If I was OP I would have waited until I was done with extensive testing before poking the fucking bear.

    I would be interested but the shipping would kill the good prices. I'm pretty sure I'll just have to buy a US core when I'm ready to turn the boost up and get Alex to build it. Hopefully someone in Australia comes along and is looking to go built motor.

    Sounds like some of our equipment manuals at work. If you include all the manuals for all the Aux equipment on one of our compressors the Operation and Maintenance manual is 2247pgs PDF file is 119MB lol.

    Just putting my current thoughts out there. With MHD Flasher logging module only $69 and already Android, it makes me ask the question, why develop such a similar feature from scratch? If we can just get raised torque monitor ceiling for BBFlash for Windows, that would mean that BBFlash can at least flash the same functionality as Cobb and MHD (not including race logic). That would mean I'd only have to buy MHD Flasher logging module because I have no problems using a laptop to flash (however, android logging is handy).

    The plugs have nothing to do with blown motors. The only reason they coincide is because the people blowing motors are the people modifying things, and the stock plugs need to be replaced when you start turning things up. the NGK 5992's work very and will give you no problems, but gap them carefully. .22"

    Dude, if you can get the DME to send the right frequency, you will open up flash tuning so much. PLEASE PLEASE also try to find a way to get rid of the boost limit, those two things, and flash tuning takes a HUGE step forward.

    Damn by the time I get my hard parts done I may be able to tune the car flash only. Funny thing is that our stock DME is probably more powerful then the M142 that MOTIV just swapped in.

    Terry, any reason for the soft launch? Just track conditions, or are you not able to spool the turbo at the line? You can't still be running those drag radials you run on the street right? If you can spool at the line its time to get some real tires on the car, and if you can launch it, you will be mid 10's easily. Would love to see the light car really launching...:auto-layrubber:

    How does "Frequency of the PWM signal used for closed loop actuator control" sound to you? ;) Seems to be set at 1000Hz in my IJEOS bin. I will investigate a bit more tomorrow.

    I may have the slips in the car still, I'll have to check. 2.3-2.4 range though. Running down 150whp for the 1/3rd of the run isn't going to help your traps much. So it's to be expected. Not to be confused with spinning the first 1/3 with the engine in a higher part of its power band that it would be otherwise.

    I think the slow 2nd gear launch was hurting the trap a bit. On runs where I left even softer traps were down a bit. I'll go back and up the trap record soon. I think the previous N54 record was Dan's 12.7@133 lol. Before the boo-birds come out, this same 135i did 11.2s with the stock turbos. Yes I know the ET here is slow. It's OK. The car now compared to when it ran 11.2s is night and day. It would pull 2x bus lengths on it in a half mile race. I will fix the ET in good time. :)

    A couple others at 135mph. Nothing very exciting. The track seemed a bit slower today too FWIW. Weather was cold but lower pressure and wet air.

    It can, just not very well. The factory solenoids run at 2000HZ, common boost solenoids like a MAC used for single turbo applications run at around 20HZ. You lose quite a bit of resolution, we have done a LOT of testing with many different solenoids, the DME can never produce a smooth curve, due to the HZ difference, this is why Terry makes a special firmware for them, to intercept the signal from the DME, and convert to the proper frequency. If you can find a table that dictates the HZ the DME sends to the solenoid, then that would allow the use of any off the shelf 20HZ solenoid with a flash only tune. I will not get into why the factory solenoid is bad for boost controlled applications. I will just say, we do SO MUCH testing no has any idea about, as we are always pushing the envelope, I spent weeks testing various solenoids, and control schemes, I must have went back and tested the factory solenoid 20-30 times each time with a new idea hoping to get it work, so we could control boost gates with flash only. It failed each, and every time. It can offer some resemblance of control if you pull the vent off, and simply switch the lines around, but it has a MAJOR flaw you will not find unless you do a lot of testing on the bench, as we have. What I find with this platform is many people make claims, but very little actual testing is done. We do the opposite, we test everything, and only post a fraction of the things we test.

    When I say the instruction set is huge...no exaggeration. The PDF doc for it is 576 pages long, but it does detail every operation. Obviously the DME logic doesn't use every operation either, probably not even half of them.
