    Fishayyy started a thread Rear Main Seal/Twin Disc in N54
    So Spec should be sending me my replacement rigid full-face discs for my Motiv clutch and I wanted to get some opinions on a few different things. Last time I swapped my clutch I had a very minor leak on my rear main seal so I wanted to replace it this time around, however I'm not sure if I need everything to be OEM or not. I've seen a mix of people recommend using the OEM seal and others saying that they got one from O'reilly's or one from a 2006 Porsche that seemed stronger. I've also seen a lot of people say that you need the OEM Locktite and others that say you don't need it. So I'm a little lost as to what I should try and what install procedures should be followed. Thanks in advance for the help!

    (proper photos will be uploaded this weekend, I only have one crappy cellphone picture of my car at the moment) I will try to be as complete as possible with this AD. Please email me if you are truly interested, I will read/respond much faster there. I still owe money to BMW, the title will be mailed from BMW after purchase and payoff. Jaredn at 2011 BMW 335is Space grey exterior, coral red interior N54 engine 7 speed DCT transmission 61,000 miles See attached PDF for VIN and factory options $37,000 I bought this on 4/2014 with 48,000 miles. I put about 600-800 miles on it per month driving to work, 15 miles round trip. CPO warranty until 1/2017, and BMW service contract until 1/2017. These are both transferable with the car for a small fee to BMW and a notarized form. The car was a single owner lease return from Monrovia BMW. I have only serviced the car at South Bay BMW. When I purchased the car, the exhaust had a slight rattle, so I had it replaced under factory warranty. While it was there I had the steering wheel trim replaced since it was peeling near the radio buttons. The LPFP was replaced early this year under CPO warranty. The car is in excellent condition. Interior is a 9/10, exterior is a 9/10. I daily drive the car, but there is covered/garaged parking both at home and at work. Mechanical problems: 1) None Cosmetic problems: 1) Front bumper cover, two minor scratches and a few rock chips from daily driving 2) Rear bumper cover, small scratch on lower passenger side 3) Drivers rear quarter window, small scratch 4) Interior center console, scratch near coin tray The following modifications are installed on the car, and any factory part that was removed will also be included in the sale. (all modifications are completely reversible, no permanent modifications have been done) All parts are roughly 8-10 months old with approximately 5000 miles on them unless specified otherwise. The only OEM parts that I am missing are the factory 313m wheels, which were sold, and the OEM open differential, which was returned to VAC as a core. Maintenance: • On 8/22/2015 I replaced all 6 spark plugs with NGK 95770 (same as 5992) gapped to .22”, 6 new Delphi coil packs, and two new Bosch primary oxygen sensors. This was done before flashing my new Wedge tune with the MHD app. Not installed: • BMS oil catch can • Vorshlag camber/caster pates with Ohlins install hardware • Swift springs (65mm 9" 672 lb/in) to replace Ohlins rear springs • HRE 448R 19x8.5+35, 19x10+30 – Gloss titanium grey lips, satin titanium grey faces, satin black bolts, satin black inner barrels. Freshly refinished and never mounted. These are not included in the price, but can be installed in place of the BBS CH-R. Performance: • MHD tune by Wedge • Wagner Tuning Evo I Performance Intercooler • AFE Stage 2 Intake - Pro Dry S • ER Chargepipe – OEM DV style • Turbosmart Kompact Plumb back diverter valves • UR Catted downpipes (bought used, ~10k miles) Suspension, chassis, drivetrain: • Ohlins Road and Track coilovers (10k miles) • OEM M3 front and rear control arms • OEM M3 front and rear anti-roll bars • OEM M3 differential bushings • MRF engineering solid aluminum rear subframe bushings • Megan racing rear toe arms • VAC built Quaife ATB differential with factory DCT final drive • West End alignment and corner balance • BBS CH-R titanium grey 19x8.5 +32, 19x9.5+35 (less than 4 months old, ~2,000 miles) • Michelin Pilot Super Sport 235/35/19, 265/30/19 (10k miles, plenty of tread left) Interior: • Gladen one 201 speaker system • Gladen Mosconi D2 100.4 amp/dsp • Audio tuning by JTAudio • Kuda dash mount Exterior: • BMW OEM car cover for e92 • Lamin-X “tint” headlight film • Paint matched front reflectors • Tinted side turn indicators • 35% 3M ceramic tint • Ebay painted (black) high kick performance spoiler

    I assumed the boost floor for pid was 0 not less but I guess I'm wrong there. We're never going to be able to brake boost like a torque converter without disabling lots of safeties and destroying our clutches in the process but it would be nice if we could at least get some spool by closing the wastegates and just venting boost out the DVs or something

    The Ghost replied to a thread s55 twin disk on N54 in N54
    I doubt this will work due to bolt pattern. You have an 8 bolt crank, where the late 2009 and later N54s (including the IS and 1M) have the 6 bolt. I'm only speculating that BMW didn't go back to 8 bolt. Maybe realoem has he S54 drivetrain listed now.

    I can't speak much cross platform because I am not as heavily vested far outside the n54. But what I will say is even some things possible cross platform are not possible on ours due to the dme. But I will say with certainty that I haven't seen it tuned the way we will be doing it and it's very interesting to me.

    Say what u want to say about Tony but he won't leave u holding ur dick in your hand like RB did to their customers. When compares his product to others, to me it looks like he is very passionate about his work, but the sensetive type get offended. Business 101 is the for sheep, u should be be able to look at the products and customer service over the gimmicks. Tony provides a great service on the forums by sharing his knowledge and opinion. And like I said and will say again, i haven't even seen or heard a single customer who is not satisfied or should be satisfied with his service. And that should speak louder than anything. Even that guy with a photoshopped invoice should be satisfied.

    after today's dyno event where my stock turbos have demonstrated that they are toast (smoke screen, wayyyyyy under target etc), if any vendor can provide a special offer with their current stage two offerings (or stage 2+ Tony@VargasTurboTech) to a user on the other side of the world with a weak dollar (Australia) i'd be most interested in hearing it ;)

    RSL replied to a thread DCT iNA0S Kickdown table testing in N54
    Did another and stayed on it for 3-4 seconds to give things more time to settle in. TPS drops to ~11. Exhaust energy ready when you let off the brake I guess, but WGs are pretty much sitting wide open. I always assumed it built a few PSI or at least held it close to 0psi. Full vacuum was not something that even crossed my mind.

    One nozzle right at the IC outlet. Well, I have not tested the 800hp IC against an out-the-shelf unit. I can tell you that it has 12sqin more cross-sectional area than the Cobb IC, so it will out flow it for sure.

    Lately Pure has been at every 1/2 mile roll race event with BMS around here running s55 n55 and now this year running their n4 stage 2s....... 1/2 mile racing makes more sense, it's easier on the drivetrain and less driver error for comparisons. The faster car will have the higher trap assuming neither has a speed limiter. Want to see real world results from a real world turbo builder come to NFZ AZ October 3rd to run against the PURE cars. ;)

    Jesus fuck people. I don't give a shit what any of your turbo dyno numbers say. The N54/BMW crowd is so concerned about shit that doesn't matter. Are these cars just like a watch for you people? What's the fastest upgraded twin car? Next, what is the fastest STOCK turbo car? Drag racing perspective they are not far at all. And unless someone gets off their ass, a stock turbo car will be in the 10s before an upgraded one (if I had 1500 to put into mods I am sure I am get my xi in the 10s). It doesn't matter what turbo vendors cock you guys want to suck this week when no one is putting these things to use. I am pretty confident on my guess which vendor will actually put their product to some real world use first. And it's the guy you all claim to hate and try to discredit because he isn't politically correct and doesnt make you feel good like mommy does.
