    N54 Community, Most of my updates are posted in my build log but I figured this was interesting enough and deserved it's own thread. My E61 Build Thread: I also hope this is motivational for those debating whether to pull the trigger on a big project like an engine swap, trans swap, whatever. Go for it! BMW forums are filled with people advising others to "sell your car and just buy a manual one," where the reality is these "advisors" have never done the swap or have any first hand experience with the intricacies of the project, it seems their advice is driven by fear of the unknown. Furthermore, the sense of accomplishment with tackling projects yourself is worth it all by itself, not to mention the knowledge gained or the money saved on labor. *steps off soapbox* So it has been about 4 months since I blew my motor: Prior to my engine exploding I was collecting parts for my AT-MT conversion as well as an AWD-RWD conversion with all M5 components. A blown motor is never convenient but the timing worked out well as I was in a position where I could undertake all projects at once which has certain advantages. My wrenching skills and understanding of the E6X/N54 platforms have been developing and although all of these relatively major projects were beyond the scope of work I had previously done, I felt I could pull it off with ample due-diligence and patience. I mean it's all nuts and bolts right? I don't have plans to take the HP/TQ much past what it was previously (~550-600whp) for my intended use as a daily-driven weapon, that power is ample and it think it is a good range where the stock internal N54 can manage the load/stress. It seems >600whp is where wear and tear are really amplified. My goal was to find a N54 long block with low-moderate (<75,000) miles on it, $2,000 or less was the price I was hunting for. Many people sarcastically wished me luck or simply said that it was not possible; I am a competitive person by nature so this feedback only fueled my interest in succeeding thanks! As all the naysayers would have it, most of the engines that met my criteria were in the $3,000-$4,000 range. The best deal I had found after a month or so of casual searching was a 535xi engine w/76k and a 6 month part warranty for $2,650 shipped from Canada (shipping was $230 or so). Not a bad deal but I passed. I ended up finding an ad on Craigslist for an N54 engine out in Fontana for $800, no picture or additional information listed but after contacting the seller they confirmed with was an N54 from a 2011 335is and had 35k on it. I went immediately to view the engine in person. The engine was complete minus the turbos and had been in an accident where the car was totaled, there was some damage to the exterior components, oil pan, and valve cover. As it was, $800 was still a great deal and if the engine was a flop I could likely part it out and break even financially. Oddly enough the CL ad was posted for over 3 months, there had been multiple buyers but all of them were scared off by the damage. I bought the engine for $800, paid $100 for it to be shipped to my house later that day, and tipped the high schooler who delivered it $40. So $940 shipped to my garage, not bad. After the initial tear down I sold the oil filter housing, wiring harness, HPFP, and i12 injectors for $950 so I know had a free N54 engine. My main concern was the block and head which after examining the damage inflicted to the engine from the crash, should still be good, I confirmed this with some "good enough" leak down tests and continued ordering parts to rebuild the front side of the engine: timing chain, cogs, oil and vacuum pump drive system, etc. All of the other engine components would be transferred over from my blown motor. Rebuild Parts List Chains, sprockets, gears: $170 Oil pan gasket, hardware: $85 Used "eBay 535i oil pan: $220 TOTAL: $475 Since the engine is still out of the wagon and it has not yet been started, ran, or tuned to confirm function, WE WILL SEE if this all plays out or if the joke's on me (naysayers patiently waiting). As it stands now, $465 for an N54 with <35k on it is a deal I am very happy with. On to the pics! Evan Replacement engine home for the first time: Stripping down the engine. Most components were damaged but some were not. A better look at the damage on the bottom. You cans ee the stress cracks in the cog and also the impact marks on the chain and chain guide. Valve cover damage Thankfully it was only superficial to the cover There was some mild contamination inside the engine from the holes in the oil pan + sitting in a junkyard for a few months The rest of the engine looked great internally Peaking up a cylinder Engine stripped down and exterior cleaned There was a broken oil pan bolt which needed to be rescued The as-is leak down test yielded terrible results so I oiled up the cylinder walls and retested. There were some variation with the reading on 2 cylinders but they had audible intake valve leak (inconsistent) and since I can't fire up the engine to get it up to operating temp, possibly clean gunk, and improve valve seat, the numbers were "good enough" for me to continue with the rebuild. 1% 12% 8% 4% 6% 12% Next up was cleaning the valves 1 2 3 4 5 6 Annie the dog is not amused New oil pan arrived, it is in much better condition than the others Tech Tip: A used subframe bolt works well as a counterhold in the Harbor Freight engine stand. I would still recommend a proper hub counterhold but this certainly helps. Didn't have the proper tool to remove this vacuum pump gear access plug from the front and on my old engine I was able to pop it out from the inside (working by the oil pump) with a long pry bar. Knowing I had an extra one to use, this one got the dremel. Got it! Camshaft lock installed Chainguide mounting plugs removed Timing chain tensioner removed, make sure to pump it a few times to evacuate old oil and also replace the aluminum seal. Hub counter hold and breaker bar with 22mm socket Teamwork Interesting build up, my 535xi engine with 105k didn't have anything like this Vanos sensors removed and cleaned Removing Vanos units Vanos, timing chain, and chain guide removed Vanos cleaned Vacuum and oil pump drive system removed Closer at the oil pump drive damage Bent cog vs new Chain guide damage from chain tension An oversight on my part but there are subtle differences between some N54 hubs and sprockets 535xi cog left, 335is right, the friction/spacer design is also different but most importantly the 335is cogs I ordered would not fit on the 535xi style hub I bought so I ended up running the original 335is hub with new cogs. Workspace N54 guts With frontside components removed I cleaned the engine as much as I could with rags and compressed air Much better now I used my old lower chain guide as it didn't have any damage and installed all new drive components Oil pump in. I reused the 335is pump as it had no noticeable damage and had 1/3 the mileage of my 535xi unit. Drive system in Timing chain and vanos back in Camshaft sensors and timing tool installed Crank hub in Timing chain pre-tensioned Torqued to spec (torque + 180) Oil pump, pickup, and baffle installed and torqued Oil pan gasket Oil pan installed and torqued Inspected and cleaned all pulleys. They collect little mounds of dirt over time so removing that should lighten the pulleys and improve performance right? +5hp? Before/After Installed Belt tensioner installed Had a roque/stripped manifold stud to remove #Tools Hard to reach places and specifc torque angles + low load specs Valve cover on Let's see how well I organized my oem nuts and bolts... Alternator and compressor installed Oil filter housing service. I had a set of new gaskets sitting for over year so this was an IDEAL time to install them, lol. New filter and the BMS bypass valve Gotta love machined metal My low mileage i12 injectors cleaned and installed New set of NGKs needed to be gapped. I have 2 different gap tools and they both suck, this is by far the best way I have found to lower the gap. Delphi coils and plugs installed HPFP, fuel rail, and engine mount installed Starting to look like a normal N54

    The other day BoostAddict posted an article regarding Weistec's legal action against Dime Research and Development or Dime Consulting. Clearly those involved with Dime realize the walls are closing in so what are they doing in the meantime while the courts play this out? BS'ing people on forums and trying to do as much damage to Weistec as possible. It's a very simple recipe and it happens more often than you think. Simply offer someone some parts for a discount or free in exchange for posting a thread including a positive review while bashing a competitor. It happens all the time. MHP was the best at this. The owner even asked me directly to create fake accounts for him on other forums so he could do this. When a ship is sinking which in this case it is a company it takes cash to stay afloat or keep the doors open. When HPF (Horsepower Freaks) was in a similar position the owner would go on the forums and post videos of how his shop was filled with cars hoping to instill confidence in potential customers. It's easy to see through the BS though if you have enough experience or have been on the forums long enough. In this instance, it was way too easy: This 'Guilty' fellow posts a graph claiming it is a C63 M177, bashes Weistec, and says how great his tune is. That tune curve looks pretty familiar though, doesn't it? Very similar but not the exact figures yet clearly an AMG GT M178 graph and not a C63 M177 graph. If it was the exact same graph as the graph Weistec advertises with that would be too obvious even to your typical forum moron. Maybe they took another run file or just changed a correction factor? If we had the actual bevvy of dyno run files from the Dynojet software testing we could prove this. Oh, it just so happens we do: That would be runfile 88 from Weistec's ECU tuning. Exact same baseline and the exact same after the tune numbers. Because it's the exact same files. This poor schmuck is either a Dime schill or he believes that is the runfile for his car. Either way the guys reading on forums just assume this is the truth and that they can get the same results as Weistec for less money. If the software is stolen and no development work took place, yep, it's possible to offer a lower price. For those who would like to verify for themselves, here are the Dynojet run files: RunFile_002_stock.drf RunFile_088_Testing.drf As stated, it's a simple recipe. Post a graph, have a few fake accounts chime in where the administration doesn't care because it's too big to care, and you get the desired result which is herding the sheep in the direction you want them to go. Now tell me, who would you trust? The company facing litigation from multiple parties with people involved accused of stealing millions and potentially funneling money overseas that advertises software they did not even develop or BenzBoost? Hmm: It seems not everyone is so easily swayed:

    Many of you have on various platforms noticed the Cobb Accesstuner Race (ATR) Software no longer is available for download. Cobb is busy updating the ATR software and it was supposed to be out in June but it looks like we will be seeing it at some point this quarter. What is the difference? One major difference is that while the software is still free to download users will be required to attend an online course they they pay for. They will then have to pass a third party evaluation to use the software. Why is this? We do not know for sure but it may have something to do with preventing people thinking they know how to tune from grenading their engines as well as emissions training. We will have to wait and find out what the course entails. More details from Cobb below. We recognize that the Accesstuner Race software has been a big part of what makes COBB Accessport tuning solutions so powerful and user friendly for the communities we support. Many have come to rely on this software to help them make small changes to COBB Off The Shelf map files to customize features like launch control, flat foot shifting, or to adjust MAF scaling. Our goal is to continue to offer this type of customization software to our end user community. After evaluating key industry trends and changes in the regulatory environment, we identified the need to update the software and provide expanded training for its use. So, in May of this year we removed the ability to download new copies of Accesstuner Race from our web site, indicated that changes were being made to the software, and it would be available again by the end of June. With that time now here, we want to provide you with an update on the progress of this project. An updated version of Accesstuner will return in the near future, be fully featured, and will continue to be offered for free to COBB Accessport customers. Because this is a powerful piece of software, we have decided that in order to fulfill our mission of delivering responsible and safe tuning solutions, we will require that end users attend a paid online training course and pass an evaluation through a third party educator in order to have access to download this free software (Accesstuner). As you can imagine, implementing these changes and setting up the online training and evaluation process takes time and involves lots of different groups both internal and external to COBB. We’ve been hard at work updating this software while creating a curriculum and bank of test questions to ensure that those who complete the course are able to safely and responsibly utilize this software. Because of the size and complexity of this project, it is taking us longer than we originally projected to complete the launch of Accesstuner and our training program. Our current timeline is for the Accesstuner software and training program to be ready for launch in the third quarter of this year. Once we are a little closer to an actual release date we will provide you with more information about the training process required for an end-user to acquire and use our Accesstuner software. We apologize that this launch has taken longer than we expected, but please know that we are very focused on getting this project completed. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We appreciate your support and your patience while we make these changes.

    So went to Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY today for Street Car Takeover. OMG it was hot. I hit the asphalt with a thermometer and it was 149* at one point. So made the first pass with a 70 additive and the DME pulled timing the entire final gear. I reduced it down to a 65 add and the next 2 passes got better. 12.2@114.9, 12.1@115.6, and 12.0@116.5, in that order. Last two passes were 2.0 60' which isn't bad for a DCT car. I didn't use LC at all, the track was super sticky and I was scared to break something.

    The Competition Package for the BMW F82 M4 and BMW F80 M3 sharpens the car with new suspensions pieces, a new differential, new 20 inch wheels, and new tires. It also increases S55 engine output to 444 horsepower which is just achieved through software tuning. It is worth the $5500 asking price for the suspension, differential, and wheels alone. We all know you can get greater engine gains from aftermarket tuning for less money. Still, the car is supposed to be faster than the standard M4. Look at the results of German magazine testing from Autobild and Sport Auto: WTFBBQ? The elasticity is worse somehow. The standard car in Sport Auto testing shows an advantage to 100 kph and 200 kph. Only in the 0-200 kph sprint by Auto Bild does the M4 Competition Package show an advantage. What is going on here? If we were to guess the new larger wheels are slowing things down a bit and also making traction off the line more difficult. It is likely that warmer weather contributed to the results as well. In equal conditions with equal traction there is no way the Competition Package should be slower. We will just have to wait for numbers from US magazines to prove this.

    It is easy to make a car look good in computer renderings. That is what we have here. Sure, the M2 looks great with the molded flared fenders, carbon lip, carbon diffuser, carbon spoiler, and other pieces. Where is the real thing though? We have not heard of PSM Dynamics so they seem to be new to the scene. That does not mean they can not deliver but some websites are treating these renderings like a finished product. The fender work if it looks like the renderings is much better than the riveted and unfinished looking Liberty Walk style kits that have been infesting the German widebody market. Let's hope PSM Dynamics delivers. This would make for a far more aggressive M2.

    The Golf R has some real competition in the United States and it is from Ford no less. Unfortunately, the Focus RS was not sold in the USA previously and but the European got to enjoy it. Well, now in the USA you can buy a Focus RS or a Golf R and it's time to see which one rules. The Focus RS already beat out the world's best hot hatches in a huge comparison test earlier this year. It is not the fastest in a straight line but it is the quickest around the track and the best all around hatchback. What the Golf R really has going for it compared to the Focus RS is the DSG gearbox option. The Golf R has the smaller 2.0 liter engine compared to the Ecoboost 2.3 liter motor and it is down roughly 50 horses. However, the Golf R in this video is not a DSG car. Can the 6-speed Golf R make up for the power deficit thanks to weighing less? No. However, the Golf R keeps up quite well and in the higher gears seems to mitigate the pull of the Focus RS. A DSG Golf R might be quicker than the Focus RS. As this is Evo no trap speeds are provided which partially defeats the purpose of a drag race. Regardless, the Focus RS is not only more powerful and the quicker car it is also the better driver's car. It's just simply the better enthusiast choice.

    Here we go again. In case you forgot BMW previously supplied Jaguar/Land Rover with a V8. Specifically the naturally aspirated M62 V8 for the 2002-2005 Range Rover. Jaguar and Land Rover developed their AJ133 5.0 liter direct injected V8 architecture after this. Keep in mind BMW owned the Rover Group for six years selling their majority stake in 2000 but continuing to supply transmissions, electronics, and motors. BMW still holds a stake today. Now, this is pretty good news for everyone. Jaguar and Land Rover will finally get a more modern architecture with turbos as their supercharged V8 quite simply is overmatched by their German turbo V8 competition. The N63TU and S63TU aftermarket will expand which is good for tuners and good for BimmerBoost with Jaguar fans no doubt looking into tuning. This is all very early and we will have to see what models get the engine. BMW is updating the S63TU for the next generation M5. It's possible Jaguar will receive this variant. This certainly is cheaper than Jaguar/Land Rover developing a new turbo V8 and BMW's motor is proven. Source

    Ok so for the past month I have noticed intermittent long cranks when i go to start my car, and it doesn't do it every single time so I figured it was probably just a cold start issue that I'd deal with until it got bad.. Well a few days ago I stopped to grab lunch and after I was done (approx 30 minutes) I went back to my car, started up fine, put it in reverse, and about halfway backed out of the parking space the engine just turned off.. All the lights and everything else stayed on, so I turned it all the way off, and it started back up and drove fine.. Well two days later I'm driving around all day just fine with no issues, then I go to meet up with my girl and as I'm parked and waiting with the a/c on, not even 5 minutes later the engine turned off, lights and all stayed on again.. I let it sit for a few minutes and was just thinking to myself what could be causing this, so I came on here, no dice.. She came out, it started up fine, and drove fine the remaining 5 hours of my work day.. Welllllll, this morning I go out to go to the gym, start my car and it immediately starts having an erratic idle, half engine light, and i tried to give it a little gas and it seemed unresponsive.. This is exactly what it was doing So upon searching the forums someone mentioned to do a throttle reset, which I did and now it seems to be fine again..????? Some people on the forum said battery, others said throttle body, others have even claimed to check the charge pipe.. Well I did look at my charge pipe and MAF sensor on the CP and they're both still seated just fine so I know those haven't come off, but I'm thinking this isn't really related to that (could be wrong) but just figured I'd see if anyone else has had any issues like this, and found a fix for it since the previous individuals never posted back if they fixed it or not.. I'm assuming the stalling issue and the new idling issue this morning are related, because they've never happened before the other day.. Also, my car has been experiencing an occasional long crank lately as well, which I read was fuel related most likely.. It's not every single time, but it has been happening and I see how that could be related to making my car stall, but the whole idle thing this morning doesn't make sense on how that could be fuel related.. I did pull the codes from when it was doing that crap this morning and they all seem to relate to "throttle" issues but again I haven't ever experienced this so just looking for some insight.. Thanks..

    Some fun runs here showing a stock turbo E90 335i going up against a pair of second generation LSA CTS-V's with unknown mods. The camera car also runs a stock 2nd gen CTS-V as well as a VVT Stage 1 upgraded E90 335i N54. Here are the specs on the camera car: 2010 Black Sapphire Metallic E90 335i - 435/499 FBO, JB4/MHD, 21psi stock turbos/inlets, E60 Fuel STG 2 LPFP, 3340lbs How does it do? Well, it gets pulled hard by the two modded CTS-V's. The torque difference is very apparent when they go from a stop. Simply too much to overcome on the stock turbochargers. Against a stock 2nd gen CTS-V though the E90 335i makes easy work of it showing just how much faster the modded Cadillac's are. The final run is against an E90 335i with full bolt ons, anti-lag, inlets, VVT Stage 1 turbochargers, and E60 fuel. The E90 camera car makes easy work of it.

    For those of you curious on how your S55 works, bootmod3's logging can help with tremendous insight. Over 250 channels available for datalogging. This log is doing over 30 in parallel. We've gone close to 40 in parallel without any issues! :happyanim: This came in from some testing with one of our closed beta cars on this forum. Live graph, open to public: To log and switch maps, you plug the bootmod3 device into the OBD port, it registers your car with the bootmod3 cloud servers and makes the car available for all the features available. Once you're in the mobile app you see your car connected and can start logging, map switching and loading custom tunes, diagnostics (code read/clear, reset adaptations, ecu reset), etc. As an aside, this was after a map switch was done over to the stock (factory/original) map/tune :)

    Last night I went out to Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, TX. Weather was a nice cool 91 degrees. About 4 degrees cooler than normal. The intent was NOT to race, just to act as pit crew. Yeah, right. The car had about 3/4 full fuel tank, I added 3 gallons of 104 race fuel. Yes, that was dumb. Too much 93 to dilute not mention the car ended up with a full fuel tank (lots of weight). I'll cut to the chase. On stock tires, BMS drop in filters, stock exhaust, Eurocharged tune, DPs, and PureTurbos = 11.437@119.86 60' = 1.497 1/8 = 7.386 MPH = 96.03 1000 = 9.578 By my second pass about two hours later, the diesel, Chevy, F150 trucks and the rest of us street cars had torn up the track and I could no longer hook. I actually got a bit loose and decided to call it a night. That pass was 12.13@122 Needless to say I am happy with the combo. Effective on the street, effect at the track. Yes, I really should get a stickier tire/wheel combo. It will be a few months before we drop into decent temperatures around here, plenty of time to research a good track combo. Thanks to Pure for their awesome product. Thanks to Eurocharged for the install and the tune to go with them.

    That is what the video shows here. These two heavyweights go at it from a stop and the Porsche gets an initial lead only for the Ferrari to quickly reel it in and pull away. It's a shocking beatdown considering this is not a stock Porsche 991.1 Turbo S in the video. Supposedly this Turbo S has a RUF tune. We do not know how aggressive the RUF tune is on the 991.1 Turbo S but we do know a flash tuned 991.1 Turbo S is capable of 600 lb-ft of torque at the wheels along with 500 horsepower at all four wheels. The Ferrari 488 GTB in stock form has 535 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. It definitely should have trouble from a stop with a tuned Porsche 991.1 Turbo S or at least take longer to reel it in and pass. This certainly will have the Ferrari fanboys beating their chests:
