    Do a log being as close to stock as you can get (maybe map 4) and see how it looks. If it still looks bad I say you take it in and act like it's mostly stock. They will test it and if the hpfp is taking a poop they will get you a new one, if not you have to pay diag cost.

    After doing a little more research, it would seem that the open/closed difference on the turbo cars are relatively insignificant, so this mod may not be so suitable after all.

    I looked into this years ago. Didn't pan out for my DD and Canadian winters as the cut-outs would generally leak, as was the accepted nature of cut-outs at the time. Maybe materials have improved since then.

    With no intention of jacking this thread, I've done about 4000Km with these at a constant 25 PSI and these just dont let up.

    Really? Because that's why they extended the warranty on them to 120k miles because so many have failed and been replaced multiple times.

    That is awesome. I wish I could rep you!!! the only thing the real BMW NA guy would say on the forum was something along the lines of, "Your concers have been forwarded to BMWNA" and that was only said when he was helping you out. And you would get a call from BMW of NA and they would say they want to help you out and to bring the car to the dealer or if your car is already at the dealer then your SA would call and say they got a call from BMW of NA and they have some sort of good news. If they were trying to decline the warranty due to mods or something, they would not say anything. You would just get a call from your SA and they would ask u to come in to the dealer where you are servicing your car. There you would be presented with all the print outs from the forums.

    If you have a JB4 you can put this exhaust valve to always open as well. Just not to always shut. If there was an interest in that I'm sure Terry xould find a spot for that setting. .. It is just not a on the fly setting so for convenience there could be a market for this.

    DMH is a great option if you haven't looked into them. I'm heavily considering that.

    +1 on this. Actually you can do this on all F-series now, from the 520d to M5... BUT, you can brick the ECU with this, you read PW, read file but sometimes under writing it can go wrong!

    The ability to control canflap will eventually be gained with DME XDF development.... It's just probably not very high on the list right now. Exhaust flap is fully controlled by the DME.

    It is weird. I have nearly 140k miles on my car. Never did the walnut blasting thing. My engine bay looks like I took my car mudding. I went from a stock turbos that smoked occasionally to FFTEC 600 kit and no smoke ever. I barely burn oil at all now. I hardly understand the PCV thing, but my setup is a breather filter on a tube coming off the stock PCV. I've had my boost hit 34psi (not intentionally), blew up my DME, blew out my rear main seal (that will cause a bit of oil to leak lol), and basically beat the hell out of my car on a daily basis. Fuel injectors seem to be a root cause of many recent engine failures and mystery smoking issues. I'm not an engineer, but I have rebuilt engines after watching a youtube video:obscene-drinkingch:. My area of expertise is medicine; specifically trauma. I would make sure you have healthy injectors and if they are not then you need to look for a major failure inside your engine.

    Noticed this same thing on a car with port injection one bank lean and the other rich could not for the life of me figure out what the cause was.This is definitely something PI guys need to keep an eye on . will also check and see if there is any torn gaskets on this one .

    The controller doesn't affect your cats, so shouldn't cause any CELs. It directly controls the solenoid valve in the exhaust. I completely understand that a lot of people just simply change their exhaust/testpipe so that it eliminates the valve completely, or do the golf-tee mod to keep the valve permanently open (this is also popular with the Ferrari guys), so this mod is mainly for those who wish to retain their stock control valve for quietness and/or warranty purposes, yet have the ability to run "open" whenever they wish. As for pricing, depending on the interest, I'm sure I can work out a different pricing structure with the manufacturer.: Exhaust Bypass Valve Controller Kit is a complete solution that allows the user full manual control of the vehicle's vacuum actuated exhaust bypass valves. The controller has an integrated printed circuit board that controls the negative side of the exhaust bypass vacuum solenoids. The user can manually open the exhaust bypass valves to have that classic engine sound at all speeds and engine RPMs. Of course, you can return the operation of the exhaust valves to the car's ECU — which generally results in lower engine noise at low vehicle speeds and engine RPM. The Exhaust Bypass Valve provides three different operational modes: 1) Normal Mode: In this mode, the vehicle controls the operation of the exhaust bypass valves. This is the stock operation. 2) Always Open: Selecting this mode will force the exhaust bypass valves to the open position — and remain open. When the valves are Always Open, you have the full experience of hearing your engine exhaust at any time. 3) Always Closed: Selecting the Always Closed mode will force the exhaust bypass valves to remain closed at all times. This overrides the ECU control which opens the valves at predetermined engine and vehicle speeds. This mode is especially useful to ensure that your vehicle is as quiet as possible. Note: With this option, you can force the valves to stay in the closed position at all times. This feature was added at the request of people who track their cars at locations with strict noise standards and did not want the vehicle ECU to open the valves at high engine RPM
