    Exactly what I thought, Boost will still reach VC. Yep....only have 1 line tapped right now so will tap others as we get them.

    This does block oil from reaching the valves, so no. But it is my understand that boost will still be pressurizing the VC. So if you want to eliminate that pressure from the valve cover gasket, then plug the ports on the head as well. This is too new to determine if it is a worthwhile step or not, however. No, you can run just this one for now, and add a bung to your OCC for it. Then when the rear -10AN is done, just replace that line going to your OCC w/ another -AN line.

    Generally I agree with you and wish Tony and other suppliers would subscribe to this, unfortunately prob won't happen because we are dealing with money and in the supplier eyes they always need to prove thier product is superior to get more market share/orders and keep making money. Most of the arguments are instigated by the suppliers going after each other, not so much the enthusiasts. It's basically dirty marketing tactics like dirty politics.

    my neighbor went with the Cobb unit for his 2008 e93 automatic, and likes it. I doubt he was happy about the price, but I'm only speculating about that. I was going to choose it also based on his basic assessment of it's affect on the personality of the car. What changed my mind to go with the procede OFT was some dyno graphs of the two side by side. The Cobb graph had many peaks and valleys in the HP curve, where the OFT did not - very smooth power curve with similar maximum output if you overlook the valleys in the Cobb graph. I'll see if I can pull that up to check on whether they were graphs of manual or auto trans. I noticed the OFT has quite a few resets available for clearing adaptations, which as I understand it, the Cobb lacks to some degree. I'd like to find out if the preexisting adaptations of the tested car using the Cobb map were in some way responsible for the herky jerky HP curve. That would make some sense to me, particularly if the cars tested were automatics where torque plays a bigger role. That aside, the throttle response difference is my main question here. From some videos I watched on the Sprint booster, it looks to me like quite a few makes and models with drive-by-wire share this dead spot in the in the first 1/8 of pedal travel. Going from something like 0% acceleration after pressing into the pedal slightly to sudden jolt of 10% acceleration or whatever is just tricky to modulate while driving through a parking lot or taking off from a stop light for example, compared to my M3 which gladly does exactly what I tell it to do from the instant my foot applies pedal pressure. I still don't understand why that dead spot exists or if it's even needed for some purpose I'm unaware of right now. The modified RATE that the pedal affects the throttle plate with this Sprint module, to me, is a separate issue that I won't be able to speak about until I've actually experienced it myself. Oh, one thing I should add is that this e92 and my neighbor's e93 have no other mods except tunes. That could change if I find a reason to upgrade downpipes, go with a DCI, or FMIC. That's a discussion all by itself.

    You would need to use the oem one. Our flywheels are machined within the same tolerances as the oem flywheel

    It's unfortunate that it has come to this. My apologies for stooping to Tony's level. Hopefully we won't need to say anything more as it's counter productive and very unprofessional.

    :bs: You forget Tony, I have the same emails. So what? I said I was upset with Rob Beck last year in one of my emails because he didn't want me to tune RobC's car?? Really? I also said a few others were upset with Rob last year as well, and you think that's bashing? :crazy: Rob has always been upfront and honest with me, unlike you. I also said that "I'm a little shocked at some of the stuff my partner writes" in response to people like you after you called him a cheese ball. The only way anyone would look at my comment as being bad, is if you posted it out of context. I'm really surprised that anyone gives you the time of day. You made your dirty bed now sleep in it Blurry... Tony Turbo... Herpo... Maybe Prem wasn't too far off when you posted about you. Yeah, funny how people forget. Doesn't take much to remind them who they are dealing with now does it. I don't need to warn you... I'm sure people would like to know what you said about them in your emails. Be careful with your answer, better yet don't say anything at all, ever again... I'll be forced to produce emails, just so you know there is heavy bashing on your part with vendors you have relations with today. I'm sure they would not be happy reading what you said. Don't worry, I won't post it online yet, I'll forward it to the vendors first as I'm sure they wouldn't be happy reading what you said about them after everyone else. :owned:

    Unfortunately as a member of wedgeperformance your statements reflect on the company. You cant criticize Tony and then pull the same shit. As far as Tony trolling your threads I'll admit I may not have seen or remember all the comments but I think everyone just wanted clarification on your tuning methods and to clarify the pros/cons of various strategies. I look forward to more things from you guys this year and hopefully comments can stay constructive.

    Thats fine I can take the hit for this one. Its ok for Tony and his side kicks to stampede our posts and nobody say shnit to them. However when I finally decide to kick back giving him a taste of what he dished out for how many time he trashed our posts, it was deserving. Btw Ken had nothing to do with this, this was all me.
