    Maybe 2017 will be the year of the N54 camshafts. Schrick officially released their option earlier in the year and the first US batch was claimed by enthusiasts. The thing is there is yet to be a single person showing positive results with the Schrick cams although several people are making such claims. Schrick obviously is a large supplier of camshafts with close OEM ties but Cat Cams in Belgium also has a history of delivering hot BMW cams. Cat Cams provides the specifications on their three flavors of N54 camshafts but pricing information is not provided. A dealer would likely have this info. Additionally, BimmerBoost does not know of any N54 members trying out or running the Cat Cams offering but this will likely change as tuning options for cams flesh out.

    AWSAWS started a thread Fueling on hybrids in N54
    Hi Guys, I have been trying to run E50 with meth injection. I am working with Trebila and he's doing a great job. However the fueling appears to be an issue for my car. Is 20+ psi on GC turbos, running E50 and meth injection ( with stage 2 fuel-it low pressure pump) just too much too ask? My port injection meth system should flow alot of meth. Any way I can calculate how much air is being moved and how much fuel is required. Say 11 degrees at 6800, AFR\lambda of 0.85 I basically don't know if my hpfp is weak or lpfp is maxed or maybe 02 sensors are reading wrong. I have tried resetting adaptations. I was basically wondering with a jb4 and a flash would it be a good idea to drive a bit with the jb4 off? To help learn in values? I've attached a log when running 23% ethanol and meth. HPFP still went too low. Thanks.

    Seems like every 2-3 yrs im replacing the coolingmist pump.Is that normal life span of methanol pumps?Thinking just to buy the top part head instead of whole pump. Would a 250psi 1.2flow pump be better then a 300psi 1.0 flow?Or is there a pump out there that lasts longer or is this just normal maint. due to meth sitting all year round in pump?What are you Meth users do with your setup & longevity.Might try the Port Meth & want to setup with a good pump if there is one.

    The goal is to eventually support several models and even different makes such as the Mercedes M156. trevorlee02 is very good at getting the software to work with multiple cars. I can't tell you at this time if the N53 is in the cards.

    Do I understand it right that not only n54 is supported? I'm still looking for a good method to flash my n53 with msd81, will this be possible?

    Emulators are overrated a bit at least from my experience. Some games never run right and it just isn't the same thing without the original controller and cartridge.

    This argument definitely has some substance. I reset adaptations with INPA and things seemed to get much better. The car is not 100% but things appear to be better. Although on my last log (not posted here) the high pressure pump dropped again but the trims were diving and the car ran so rich that it was back firing after letting off the gas. So much fuel left in the exhaust. Yesterday I had reset adaptations with MHD and JB4 many times but they didn't seem to have an effect like INPA did. Maybe something about my software or module versions. I don't know. Check this out. This is the same car and roughly the same type of pull on the same fuel. Before trims are maxing out and hpf drops. After the trims just dive and hpf stays strong. Like you RSL I am not 100% sure of the problem or the cure.

    took the car for a quick test ride the other night. All is working well but was severely over boosting.Have since replaced the springs with a large black and small red which claims to be around 10.1 psi. Testing this afternoon saw roughly 11-12psi so about where i want to be.

    Has your LP fallen lower over time at idle/normal driving too? I see your starting LP is 59-60psi and "cruise" is about 57psi. Curious if those continue to get lower. I had issues with JB4 app fuel pressure readings being lower than the interface and both were lower than MHD (INPA matched MHD readings). Over the course of months, the pressure dropped as well, so 2 things going on: incorrect (low) readings and declining pressure. I turned FOL off months before, but that never stopped LP from reaching new lows almost weekly. It got to be ridiculously low (like 40psi at idle per JB4 app, low 50s on MHD/INPA). HPFP stayed OK the whole time, but that was all on 93 only and 21-22psi on RR600s. During that time, I had checked the LPFP twice, reset the usual adaptations and FCV multiple times and even replaced the filter/FPR. No help. I finally had enough, pulled the JB4 out and though MHD/INPA read ~12psi higher, FP was still below "norm" (low/mid-50s at idle). I replaced the LP sensor even though I had no codes for it and reset the EKP. Problem solved. Idled 65-66psi, drive is around 70-71psi, WOT is 79-80psi (on MHD, confirmed on INPA). That's been 2 months and no change in those pressures. JB4 never went back in, re-scaled flash only for low 20s psi, done. I'm honestly not sure which resolved it: new LP sensor or resetting the EKP, but both are cheap/free quick things to try. Why mine got so low in the first place is unknown, but could really only be a couple of things.

    Post that on datazap so people can easily see it and read! The GC's make more power than stock frame designs per pound of indicated boost but you seem to be running out of hpfp a little earlier than I'd expect, especially spraying methanol.

    Well I'm sure you could come up with something better than what I would for the sub-forum. As for the wiki I think that something like this could be done but expanded on: https://www.ecmtuning.com/wiki/engineandecu101 Tabs like the guide that V8 bait used would be a good starting point but could be expanded to included all the parameters found in the xdf files. As new things are found and discussed it could be added to or modified in the wiki to memorialize it. After some time you would end up with a basically a depository that anyone that wants to try there hand at tuning could use and get up to speed relatively quickly. The best example I can come up with would require me to take you back to the mid, early 90's. There was a dude named Todd Day that ran this website called DSM.org. He basically categorized any and all information that had to do with DSM's on his website. 90% of that information came from the information others posted in a subscription based email daily digest called The Talon Digest. In my mind this wiki would be the dsm.org and the sub-forum The Talon Digest which would feed the wiki. That's my take but I'm sure there are smarter people out there that may have a better way of doing this.
