    OK, this is an IKC0S ROM. I found an OLD (OLD!) IKC0S XDF...does anyone have a newer one?

    MHD should identify the rom family on the flash screen IIRC, something like "HW: Ixxxx", may be under codes screen also. Not too many options though, so my guess is you're IKC0S or ILA0S if neither the IJE0S or INA0S XDFs display the tables properly. XDFs for IK and IL are out there, but not in the current zip. MHD is also not supporting them (not porting updates to their layouts), so might as well update to INA0S with MHD if it's not IJ or IN.

    Well...turns out I don't have an Xdf file to view my own rom. How can I tell the software version so I can track down an xdf?

    Error 404. I was actually trying to see what rom family it was to note in the thread, but fail. There are multiple IS families, just like non-IS: IJE0S, IKC0S, ILA0S and INA0S.

    looks like they are right next to pertrolwerks, i dont know if they are affiliated. i think the owner of petrolwerks was on here doing a crazy build with nitrous last year but the thread just died out.

    Literally any Ring, and Pinion you want for those M3 Diff's. Most of them can be had for under $500. Buying one from Quaife is a sure way to spend too much money

    BPC (Bimmer Performance Center) is a relatively new vendor on BimmerBoost. You may have read about their awesome M57 diesel tuning packages or their new F80/F82 S55 engine tuning recently. They put together this technical video on the N54 and N52 blocks before officially coming on board and it is well worth your time. The N54 engine block is often discussed in the forums. If you have sixteen minutes to spare watch the video below and learn a few things. If not, BimmerBoost will summarize it for you: * The N52 block includes magnesium for weight savings. N54 has steel liners. * The N54 is built more for strength than weight. * The cooling pipes are located in different areas. * The N52 does not have oil drains for turbos as it is naturally aspirated. * The N54 has a smaller bore of 84 mm. N52 is 85 mm. * The N54 has a longer stroke of 89.6 mm. The N52 88 mm. * The N54 has a smaller bore for more cylinder material. * The bottom end design is identical. * Forged crank on the N54 and cast crank on the N52. * 8-bolt main on the N54, 6-bolt on N52. * N54 cylinder head bolt is 11 mm. N52 cylinder head bolt is 10 mm. Both have 9 mm bolts in cylinders 6 and 1. * Both rods are forged. N52 has smaller 8 mm rod bolt. * N54 has larger 22 mm wrist pin to the N52 20 mm. * N52 is higher compression with N52B25 11.0.0:1 and N52B30 10.7:1. * N52 head gasket has larger cooling passages. * N52 head will physically fit an N54.

    Ive looked through this thread and the ncat10 originally had an auto and added an M3 diff and they don't come in the right ratio for the 335i DCT. Unless he got a new ring and pinion to suit how did he get around the issue ?

    Massive gains here for an RK Tunes custom dyno tuned F82 M4. This car is tuned on 93 octane pump gas. It also certainly sounds like it has exhaust modifications and BimmerBoost will get clarification on the full mod list. Regardless, the gains over the baseline figures of 431 wheel horsepower and 448 lb-ft of wheel torque are massive: These are Dynocom figures which in BimmerBoost's experience read a bit higher than a Dynojet. The torque figure is approaching 600 lb-ft at the wheels which is incredible. The torque curve does take a nosedive toward redline but that is the reality of BMW turbo motors. A gain of 140 lb-ft tune only is nothing to sneeze at though. <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:28.10185185185185% 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/BVDK-jxlzBa/" 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 post shared by Jordan H.

    Maybe someone will be interested. S50B32 engine of Euro-version. Here is the correct form of signals from camshaft and crankshaft sensors in maximum retarded position. Here is angular diagram of triggering pulses.
