    FYI I also have an issue with Map 4. 30ff was showed and I don´t know why. This doesn´t happen in the rest of maps, not even Map 0 Stock. But the car runs properly, even with the Half-engine light. Just in map 4. Picture of the moment that it happens, reaching the 3.000rpm. Was not a WOT.

    In AU it's standard to get custom tunes, only the euro scene loves their flash tunes. The better JDM tuners will also tunes euros. Any of the tuners who have tuned stupid shit in the past? NTPerformance do their own tuning on N5x Chequered have a solid history on tuning anything they can plug in to Racepace is known for class winning big $ GTR builds with variable cam timing (aftermarket HKS VCAM etc) Two of those are within 20 minutes of home and have tuned friends cars, there are also various 'private' shops within 15mins.

    I bet the Porsche has around 590HP (crank) and the M6 which in fact is convertible should have north of 700, G-Power tend to boost around 0,4-0,5 bar, so with the KKS-exhaust, my guess is 720-750PS

    Hi everyone, I´m from Spain and Im a newbie in BMW Performance and their ECUs. I´ve just installed a JB4 G5 ISO with DCI and I would like to post the logs to comment some issues. First: 335i 2008 N54 DME81 98RON (93 octanes) JB4 G5 ISO 28.5 DCI Stock First, pull in 5th gear. Map 5 FOL: 65 FUD=2 DWP: 100 BDC: In 3.200 rpm 3500-5200 APRENDIDO by sserx_r, on Flickr Second, pull in 5th gear. Map1 FOL: 65 FUD=2 DWP: 80 BDC: In 2.500 rpm MAPA1 by sserx_r, on Flickr Third, pull in 4th gear. Map 6 with target up to 16psi 4.500-5.000rpm FOL: 65 FUD=2 DWP: 80 BDC: In 2.500 rpm MAPA6 by sserx_r, on Flickr Fourth, pull in 5th gear. Map 6 as previous one. FOL: 65 FUD=2 DWP: 80 BDC: In 2.500 rpm MAPA6_2 by sserx_r, on Flickr I would like to know about the ignition corrections all the time in every map, is it normal? And the trims are elevated specially in map 6 after the corrections in DWP and BDC, but I don´t know if these corrections have to do with. Thank you to everyone in advance and regards from Spain.

    I'm not really sure why they're doing this. Nobody likes it, it doesn't sell, it's very expensive because it's more 7 than 5, and yes, it's a bit ugly. So, I don't see the business case for it. Maybe the next gen won't be so bad...but for it to be less bad, it either has to be an X6 or a wagon, and since it won't be, I don't see how that could be.

    For sure, good luck in piecing it all together. There are always a million unforeseen issues. It's part of the game. I'm looking forward to seeing big numbers in your future.

    Just to elaborate, the XI did a 11.3 @ 122 mph and dynoed on the same track map at 470 awhp / 509 awtq. After I retuned him with the TFT inlets he got 528 awhp / 555 awtq within the TMAP sensor range He may not even need to load the 600+ awhp red map for him to break 10s.

    Terry, again, throttle safety is not disabled, it is relaxed. PTF also relaxes the TC from acting aggressive for post shift overshoots as a technique to help guide it back to the SP gently rather than violently with stock settings. I've gone a little further with it though as I prefer to use PID to fully guide boost back to the SP at an extended overshoot rate and only set the TC to act at a desired amount of overshoot all within the TMAP sensor range. Its all up to the customer, if the customer desires boost to always be on target I can do that to If the customer wants to get nitty gritty dirty on a higher octane pump gas I can do it I'm all about what the customer wants in a tune and that is what my tuning is all about, flexibility. And no, Wedge or myself will not chime in on how we use PIDs, we will only explain and teach this to our customers if they desire as our maps are not locked.

    As for all of the post about doing independent testing: I think it is pretty fair to say that at least one party would have a large number of excuses either which way you skin it. There is just too much involved with the swap and tuning. It would turn into "well they had .5 more psi there, and 1 more degree of timing". Or "my passes were heat soaked!". Or "the tuner was biased!". Or "the engine was tired after all of the tweaking on it, going second wasn't fair!". We can not even have a dyno comparison posted with an AT AWD vs a MT RWD, 20% less WGDC, on E60 vs. 100% E85; seen as being an underdog for crying out loud. Now it is a "well my inlet screen was restrictive! And our turbo inlets were probably hot too!" You get the drift, it is always something. Rob

    All in all this xi car would mop up the streets of the 2+ shop car based on verifiable drag results. Keep in mind the RB XI car went 11.3's@123mph (PRIOR to any turbo swap OR TFT inlets). While the VTT 2+ shop car went 11.6@125mph in full kill mode (and a lot of excuses). This is the reality of it all. If that was not enough of a beating, this XI car would now do circles around the VTT 2+ car. The graph to graph comparison shows a VERY dominant setup, and if you need explanation of which is superior there may not be much hope left for you. Rob

    Thanks for that. It is very frustrating but nothing that was not partially my fault. I should have gotten new wheels over a year ago and would have avoided the leaking rim issue, had I not been traveling for work so much the tuning would have gotten done months ago. Once we get the inlets on here things should open up nicely but first the tuning needs work.

    Thanks for joining the discussion. Considering they are making about 180ft/lb additional torque at 3250rpm, while losing only 40ft/lb at 6750rpm, is very telling on how much better the quality turbo design. This is ruling out the fact that this was done an an AWD AT car vs. a RWD MT as well. All at 20% less WGDC. Thanks for clearing this up. It is a minor point so no issue in cleaning it up. I'll let you answer this one yourself regarding your hot air ingestion losses: As stated in the "PSS", if you have a "record" 645rwhp pass with a verifiable MPH graph to ensure 4th gear…. provide it and we will do a new photoshop to keep it real. We were unable to find it and gave up on the wild goose chase. We realize your word says it to be, but we have found in the past your word to be very unreliable so data must be presented on this front. Looking forward to it. Perhaps you can toss it all on an AT XI car and limit your WGDC to 48%. Oh and limit yourself to E60 while you are at it. Just want to make sure we keep it apples to apples, after all. See the very first reply of ours in this very post yet again, it needs more soak in time apparently. Thanks, Rob

    Vargas Turbocharger Technologies is proud to officially announce the release and immediate availability of our Single Barrel HPFP Upgrade! The 100% completed kits are in stock and we began shipping units today! Thanks again to all those of you who pre-ordered and have been waiting patiently. We’re very excited to get these units out to you and looking forward to seeing how your cars perform. New orders (while the first batch lasts) will be processed and shipped in 3 - 5 business days. Single Barrel Logo by VargasTurboTech, on Flickr Product Information: The "Single Barrel" HPFP kit replaces your existing HPFP. Using our mounting system the new pump is relocated in the accessory cluster to be overdriven by the belt. Coupled with our new feed line, and rail modification this provides enough fuel for around 550WHP on 100% E85, with blends it can support even higher. We went through numerous pulley designs to find the optimum overdrive speed that would optimize flow, pressure and longevity of the new components. Pricing for the "Single Barrel" kit is $1199 Single Barrel kit contains: - VTT Billet HPFP drive housing - VTT Billet Stainless Steel drive shaft (pre-assembled in housing) - High speed German ball bearings rated at 17,000RPM (pre-assembled in housing) - VTT Billet HPFP pulley - VTT HPFP housing mounting bracket - VTT Billet stock location HPFP block off plate - VTT High Pressure feed line - VTT Low Pressure feed adaptor - Properly sized drill bit to modify stock fuel rail (this can be done by any shop) - Water line modification parts - Plug and Play wiring harness - All hardware required for assembly FAQ: Q: Will this set up work for me if I have stock turbos and just want to run E85 without worrying about mixing? A: Yes you can pull up to the pump, fill up with 100% E85 and not worry about running out of fuel with as much power as you can possibly make with stock turbos. Q: Can I run mixes of E85 and pump fuel with this set up? A: The system is 100% compatible with Ethanol (E85) as well as regular unleaded pump gas, and will supply significantly more total fuel volume with either fuel, or any combination of both. Q: How much power does the Single Barrel Kit Support? A: When coupled with adequate supply from the LPFP this kit has been proven safe for up to as much as 550rwhp on 100% E85 Q: What happens if the belt or HPFP fails? A: BMW set up the HPFP system so that even if the HPFP fails the LPFP will continue running and bypass through the pump and you can limp the car home. We actually unplugged the "Single Barrel" system and drove the car for 30 miles with no issues except a limp condition and low power. Q: How hard is it to install? A: Installation can be completed by the average DIYer in about 5-6 hours without any special tools or about 3-4 hours for a shop. Installation instructions: Installation starts with intake manifold removal, then high pressure feed line removal followed be replacing the stock HPFP with our block off plate. Then you will unbolt and reroute the LPFP line to where the pump will now run. Followed by plugging in the harness extension and then you can reinstall the intake manifold. With the charge pipe still out you'll remove the cooling fan, unbolt the 2 bolts from the drivers side motor mount and raise the driver side of the motor to allow easier access to AC compressor. Remove the 3 bolts holding the AC compressor, install mounting bracket over the AC compressor using the supplied new bolts. Then there are supplied instructions to help you modify the water line so that it clears the pulley. Now you're ready to lower the motor back down re-install the bolts, and attach the HPFP to the housing. At this point you're almost done; just reroute the LPFP feed to HPFP and connect it, install the new belt and reinstall fan. Finally remove the stock fuel rail which you or a shop can modify with the supplied drill bit and install the high pressure feed line from HPFP to rail, reinstall charge pipe & intake, purge system, and start vehicle. We did our best to not make the kit/install invasive but in order to mount the pump in the new location you do have to modify one water line, and bend an AC line out of the way, everything else is bolt on making it easy to return your vehicle back to stock. If you choose to go back to stock at any point you would need to purchase a new water line to replace the modified one. If you have any further questions feel free to post them in this thread or send us an email.
