    Is 800 rwhp the new 700 rwhp? Just the other day a 737 rear wheel horsepower stock internal N54 was posted on BimmerBoost. Well, this E90 335i takes things a bit further 802 rear wheel horsepower at 33 psi of boost with E70 fuel on a 131,000 mile stock internal N54. Impressive, right? Here is the full mod list: 131,000 mile stock engine car. MOTIV 900 Turbo Kit MOTIV Port Injection MOTIV Twin Disk Clutch Fuel It Stage 3 pump basket BCP Colossal Intercooler VRSF Charge pipe w/ TiAL Q blow off valve MHD Back End Flash by BCP AEM EMS4 for boost control and port injection control M3 cowl Modified stock catback exhaust Tuned in house by at BCP 802whp @ 33psi on E70 fuel Special thanks to Jake @ MOTIV Over 800 whp from a motor with over 100,000 miles on the clock that has not been opened. It's not going to last forever obviously and running it at 800 plus all the time is asking for trouble but 800 whp certainly can be done on the stock internals even with a well used N54. Great work by everyone involved.

    Well guys I am having fun working with the N54 platform and as some of you know the single turbo kits is not my main business as I have a whole other side of business dealing with many differeent plattforms. The N54 was just my foot in the door in the BMW market so I am glad everyone is liking what my company has to bring to this market with our experience and resources. So, I would like to share some news with you guys.... First up some changes to the turbo kits. I've been getting a lot of concerns on some areas of the kit so I took the time to add a couple things. I have finally been able to design and produce a bunch of these coolant tank relocation brackets. I will be including the brackets with the kits from here on out. And for the guys that have already purchased the kits please contact me and I will make sure you get one. I may just ask for postage on them so just a couple bucks. They will not include the titanium hardware like in the pictures but can be bought for a few bucks. Starting 7/1/16 we will be including a PNP MAC solenoid with our kits. We will also be offering them on our website for $50 free shipping in the US. We have also been getting concerns about our silicone vacuum lines that are used for boost control. The concern is about how the hoses are not able to handle the heat. Well, there is no problem because the wastegates are mounted low and completely away from all the heat generated from the manifold. I spent a good amount of time making sure they were mounted in a position where there was no chance the lines and/or the diaphragm in the wastegates will get burnt up causing an engine failure. The diaphragms in the wastegates are not made of metal, they can melt over time and is why I made sure they were mounted in a cool place. The DOC Race intake manifold with integrated port injection has finally been installed with some positive feedback so far. I have made two. One was installed on VTT shop car and from what Tony is saying it makes the roughly the same power but with less boost. That is better than losing power I guess. We didn't really get into how much power it was making. The second manifold was installed on our shop car. I did a baseline run before we took the factory manifold out last week and we are going back on the dyno this week with the new intake. No changes other than the manifold and piping going to it. Still running AD-Engineering tune with the Haltech they supplied with their port injection kit. Car started up and idles the exact same (perfect), no hiccups. Here are some pics of it manifold and of it installed. Ported head time for shop car! Just stopped by my friend’s shop to check up on the head I dropped off for him and saw what we had been working on. All I have is just a pic to show for now. More info on this later

    prelude2perfect started a thread 1/4 mile results in N54
    My best time from the other weekend. Couldn't run high boost due to fueling limitations which I found out later on that my LPFP fuel line connection was broken. Big shout out to Terry for his amazing remote trackside email support as usual. Always responding insanely fast and helping me sort out tuning issues. The customer service of BMS has been outstanding to say the least over the past 6 years that I've owned this car and originally started with the JB3. Mods are in my signature. Bone stock and aging sports suspension. Kosei K1 17" with very old and worn Hoosier 275/40 DR's. I was getting a consistently fast 60' with my new LSD and 2step launching around 5k rpms. Need to get back out on the track now that I've fixed my fueling issues and turn up the boost. Right lane:

    Hey guys. Just wondering if anyone can recommend a pro n54 tuner who will tune bins for use with bb flash. Most will only use MHD, and I haven't had any luck using that. In any case, I have always use bbflash without any issue. Thank you in advance! mods in sig

    AWSAWS started a thread Octane, ethanol in N54
    Hi Guys, so please explain to me something. On some forums I've seen it said, that you should run as little octane as you can get away with, without timing drops/ knock etc. Now I fully understand that adding in more octane without the increased boost and/or timing advance to take advantage of it appears to be a waste. What I'm wondering though is if I'm running E30 fuel (and meth injection), and getting no knock, then is there any point in raising the Ethanol content to E50 or E60? Every molecule of ethanol replacing gasoline is pulling out chemical energy from combustion. However, every molecule of ethanol spraying into the cylinder is having a greater effect in reducing internal temperatures, thanks to it's greater latent heat of evaporation. The aim as I understand it is to spray more fuel. Am I correct in thinking that the targeted AFRs for E60 will have to be closer to 8.5:1 than the targeted AFRs for E30? So will the ideal amount of ethanol to run, be dependent on the targeted AFRs and fueling if boost targets and ignition advance values do not change? Forgetting about the pumps being up to the job, is it possible to add too much ethanol, where the combustion in the cylinder happens too slowly and causes misfires? Thanks guys. I'm always wondering how much ethanol is enough when I visit the drag strip.

    So I am going to get ready to pull my motor and build it. I'm sure you are all familiar with the "Kraken" which is my vehicle. Going to be going to the next level now. I will be doing Carrillo rods and Pistons with upgraded wrist pins and heat treated Pistons. My question is I was thinking of keeping the stock compression. If someone had any information about that it'd be greatly appreciated. Also the benefit of close decking? I'm shooting for 9's is it truly that necessary? Any bit of info would be appreciated, thanks

    This is an interesting race on the highway as the M5's rear wheel drive layout is a benefit and not a hindrance when it stretches its legs. The Nissan GTR's are lighter by about 500 pounds and like the M5 are DCT equipped but they do have higher drivetrain losses. Not that it should matter for a GTR with a turbo upgrade. It of course depends which turbo upgrade as numbers can range from 7XX to 2000+ whp. These two are said to be full bolt on with the red car having hybrid turbos and the white GTR some unnamed turbo kit. They go from a low speed roll and the GTR's take an initial lead. The M5 quickly starts to pull as speeds rise and makes easy work of both cars. The GTR's were on pump gas though. On race gas or E85 this race would be a very different story. Still, it goes to show a bolt on M5 can beat turbo upgraded GTR's on the highway if they are not in kill mode. M5: Downpipes, K&N filters and tuneRed GT-R: FBO + hybrid turbos (700HP)White GT-R: FBO + turbo upgrade (730-740HP)

    So I'm disabled and usually I have the person working at the gas station fill up gas for me and always fill up 93 octane but this time he heard wrong and filled up 87 octane (full tank btw), my car is a N54 and has a upgraded turbos, FBO, and a custom tune for 93 octane and the codes I got from driving it back home (drove very slowly) are: 2A87 Outlet - Vanos variable cam control test, mechanics 3100 Boost - Pressure control, deactivation My question is, would some octane booster help my situation if I add some to the tank now?? Thanks ahead!

    You have to take the horsepower figures here with a grain of salt. GAD motors obviously builds powerful M157's so no doubt they can deliver 900 horsepower in this ML but without dynos there is no proof either of these SUV's are making their claimed horsepower. The X6M traps 126.8 in the 1/4 mile and the ML63 124.3. That just does not feel like 850-900 horsepower performance even in 5300 horsepower SUV's. The X6M can do about 115 stock so almost another 300 horsepower is an increase of 11 miles per hour of trap speed? Whatever the actual horsepower figures may be these are two powerful German SUV's going at it. The X6M is the faster of the two and beats the ML63 to the 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile marks decisively although the AMG puts up a fight. Hopefully we can get the details on what is done to each but turbo upgrades are a given.

    You have decided to get your first custom dyno tune. Congratulations! That is a big step forward and a smart move. Your tuner will extract the maximum from your car providing they are a quality tuner and leave you with a stronger vehicle. First timers no doubt will have some questions and this FAQ has the answers. So you are booked in for your first Dyno Tune. You may have some questions, here are the common ones to keep you on the right track. Q: Should I make sure my spark plugs, leads and ignition system are in good working order prior to my booking? A: Certainly not. Just like other known issues, ignition problems provide your tuner with a bit of a challenge. They will enjoy removing your spark plugs for you (especially if they are hard to reach) as laying on the engine reaching down the back when it is scorching hot on the dyno keeps them warm in the cooler winter months. Q: It’s the morning of my booking and my car isn’t ready, should I call and notify my dyno tuner? A:It is generally considered best to not make any contact with the tuner, if they try and call you simply don’t answer. Once your car is ready for tuning, showing up unannounced and expecting the tuner to drop everything and tune your car is common and widely accepted by most dyno tuners as the best option. Q: Does a dyno tune use much fuel? A: No. Most modern day dynamometers utilize new technology to reduce fuel consumption. Minimal (and if available, poor quality) fuel is best. The DIS Dyno Systems EMS 1000 has the latest unicorn drive fitted allowing vehicles to be tuned with no fuel at all, converting the perpetual kinetic energy from a small amount of unicorn horn to drive the vehicle’s drive line throughout the tune. Q: Should my dyno tuner guarantee that my engine will not be damaged? A: Yes. Any tuner worth their salt should be able to utilize their time machine and x-ray vision to look inside your engine and assess the overall condition, service history, quality of parts used, and ability to handle the increased performance you are asking him/her to achieve. New parts further guarantee the strength of your engine, especially components purchased on certain online auction websites, manufactured in communist countries. Q: I heard dynos destroy tyres should I put my old junk tyres on for the dyno? A: Quality tyres are expensive, ideally fit your vehicle with old tyres. If possible, find some with some canvas and steel belting hanging out of the tyre. This not only gives the tuner an audible indication of wheel speed it also makes for some exciting sparks and possibly a tyre failure which everybody enjoys, just look at burnout competitions, it’s a real crowd pleaser. Q: What should I consider when choosing an ECU? A: Cost is the main consideration when selecting engine management. The cheapest option, even if not suitable for your engine configuration, will give you tuner the biggest challenge, they like challenges. This way you can spend more on tuning and add ons and it gives you the best chance of poor starting and garbage economy that comes with only the best race cars. It’s Also a good idea to choose an engine management system that your tuner has never seen before, obscure one off systems with difficult to use software allow your tuner the opportunity to learn and extend their knowledge while tuning your car. They often like to learn new things and will thank you for the opportunity (they might even give you a discount!) Q: If there is an issue I know about should I let my tuner know before he/she starts? A: Generally not, its like stealing the limelight at a wedding. You are robbing the tuner of the opportunity to challenge himself. Most tuners enjoy the thrill of the hunt, an intermittent misfire, a dodgy wiring connection or faulty fuel pump can provide hours of genuine entertainment for a dyno tuner. They will be very grateful. Q: My car didn’t make as much power as I thought, what should I do? A: Complain. Most dyno tuners try to achieve low power outputs by running less timing, low boost and rich mixtures, this ensures that your car can’t go too fast and improves road safety. Road safety is a high priority for dyno tuners but they are generally afraid of mushrooms, so please keep this in mind. Q: Can I stand in the dyno cell while my car is being tuned? A: Yes, OH&S is not an issue as it is your car. Often wheel weights can come off wheels at 200km/h or more and trying to catch them with your face is a great way to pass the time with your friends. If you have taken our advice on tyres, get a friend to stand at the back and video the sparks on their phone, when the tyre blows you will all have a great story to tell and have a few laughs over. Q: I have a previous dyno run, or a friends car that is the same that made more power, why? A: Your tuner must not be very good at their job. Non tune related variables in dyno readouts such as gear used, tiedown method, tyre compound & size, air density, air temperature probe location, dyno calibration, ramp rate, fuel quality, and many other factors are standardized by the National Dynamometer Variable Council (NDVC) so these will never be a factor in your power readout. If your readout is lower than another dyno on a different day it will most likely be because of the tune. Q: I’m not 100% happy with the tune I have, what should I do? A: Definitely do not talk to your tuner about the specific issues you are having and give them the opportunity to rectify them. If you do this you will most likely offend and upset them. If you do talk to them stick to vague descriptions like “Its just not right” or “it feels funny” this way you wont sound like a know it all. It is best to post in face book groups or on your own page that your tune is rubbish and never to go there, this way you can express your concerns without upsetting the tuner. You should be now armed with the best information to ensure a quick, painless and quality tune! Good Luck! Stay tuned for more great tips including, “Using the internet to Fix Your Car” and “How to Talk to Mechanics”. Source

    Hoping to get some discussion going on the finer points/peculiarities of tuning scaled (3-column) MAP bins. I'm messing with my first one and while it's proving easier than pushing INA0S over ceiling to get 20psi, it brings to light some things your don't see in an unscaled map. For example... I've been trying to smooth out an MAF "dip", for lack of a better word. That's exactly what it looked like to me at first, but all evidence to the contrary. It mostly bothered me since boost control uses it, the dip was smack in the middle of coming up to target and seemed pretty severe. It even fell as boost/RPM increased, but most often, it would stay static for a few hundred RPM and then began to rise again. You'd expect the slope to change as the scaling started reporting lower data, but it seemed excessive. Boost, boost target, WGDC MAF (g/s) (red): After messing with some things, I decided to change my spool mode RPM. It was set for 3000RPM, which also happens to be break points for all kinds of other stuff, so I wanted to push it out of the way to eliminate it as a factor as I moved forward. I upped it to 3300 RPM and, lo and behold, the spot where MAF dipped moved up with it and the start of the "dip" became even more pronounced. The light bulb finally came on. The usual values passed around for 3-column scaling start it ~10psi, so the scaling starts during my spool (somewhere around 2700-2800 RPM depending when I floor it), BUT logs say that scaled boost doesn't take effect until spool mode ends, no matter where that is. jyamona@motiv martial@mhd, there is either an undiscovered MAP (spool) table somewhere or the scaled logic just isn't active during fuel mode 20. Not exactly a crisis, but noteworthy. So, for the time being, I moved the spool mode below the 10psi area (2600 RPM) and the sizeable deviation at changeover to scaled is gone and/or at least in a less crucial area. The "sag" remains due to the scaling and will change with boost/tuning from here on out, but for now, once its hits ~19psi, MAF (purple) comes up and stays pretty linear after that. Maybe everyone knows this already and I'm way late to the party, but I sure didn't find much of anything on scaled maps, so I wanted to get a bit more in-depth discussion going...or at least have a place to post when I get hung up or come across something interesting with it :D

    Hi guys, I just finished getting a pro Tune using the cobb platform on my n55 xdrive with newly installed pure turbos stage 2. Other mods include cobb fmic, cobb catted downpipe, charge pipe and afe dry air filter. New spark plugs in. Running 94 gas - petro Canada. Reviewing the attached dyno the results look a little strange to me. At higher rpm it starts to go all over the place. Is this normal? I did feel some stuttering at higher rpm when I was testing out the pro Tune. The pro tuner also advised of this. I may need to go back to him to review it over. Last point I have a catted downpipe and I did read on here that this can be an issue on the turbos. Any tips or advise to avoid any issues please share. Thanks guys

    Think you can't get a BMW SUV sideways? Think again. This sliding around isn't as epic as the controlled drift we saw an Audi RS6 wagon do recently but this is a 5300+ pound SUV getting the rear end to step out and the driver pulling the car out of the controlled slide thanks to the all wheel drive traction. It helps it is damp out and that the X5M's twin turbo S63TU V8 has a ton of torque. It also helps this is Russia where rules seem to only apply to certain people. Still pretty awesome. <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-version="7" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:28.125% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BG4wQwWBwrb/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">A video posted by 🔹BMW Chechen Republic 2016.© (@bmw.chr)</a> on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-06-20T18:43:48+00:00">Jun 20, 2016 at 11:43am PDT</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

    Hello everyone. I'm the proud owner of an f15 50i msport with allll the goodies but that's neither here nor there. I got jb+ setup (Maf)and installed. No gains outside comfort and Eco pro having roughly the same output as sport/sport + decided to to give racechip a try since it does tap different sensors. But alas I got the exact same results as the jb+ alone being the madman I am...I left the racechip installed(setting b) and also installed the jb+'s back in at the same time set on 11am. I also changed to the x5m air filters and put two cans of torco in 15 gallons(105+ mix)......and I'll be damned. I got 473hp/579 tq using dashcommand through a Carly gen 2 (I spent an hour setting up all vehicle parameters to make sure I am as accurate as possible on this. But if nothing else it can be a comparison because stock I was showing 405 at the wheels. Also I found data online showing that the 8 speed/xdrive setup shows a 19% loss from flywheel to tire so if that is close to correct and my dashcommand is close to correct that would mean I'm making somewhere around 562/689 at the motor?? 5% error + or _ of course.
