    Sorry, No. We are not offering Ti wheels for the N55 turbos.

    Glad you're getting it worked out and glad RobC seems to be trouble free with stage 3 lpfp and stage 2 PI, as that's what I will be running this coming week when the bucket gets here. Hopefully, Steve can work something out for you.

    In theory they should be just about the same.

    I am confused by the posts above. We are having zero problems with the DI fuel system, the car is running so hard at 24 psi I can no longer do runs in 3rd gear, it just spins. HPFP is stable. I am just not convinced the DI system can handle 900WHP. So I will put a PI system on the car so once we get on the dyno, and start cranking it up, if we run out of fuel I can turn it on, and not be stuck. If we end up not needing it, I will pull it off and sell it. I like to try to be prepared whenever possible.

    Glad you guys are getting figured out! Def not a knock but I never understand why people try to skate by on less than enough fuel system. Nothing is more important to a high HP build than fuel system. Anyone going 100% E85 whether on stock frames, or ST should be stage 3 without question, other things can be skimped on, but never fuel system. Hopefully you can get a stage 3 in there, and get it running right! Keep us posted.

    It appears we've fixed one problem to unearth another. Jake took a look at things yesterday and it became pretty apparent that the car was going lean and generally crapping out because the port fuel was delivering too fuel. Widebands are only reading burnt fuel - Jake's thought was that the amount of fuel was washing out spark, and leading to all sorts of shenanigans. Certainly makes enough sense to me, so we pulled some fuel out and the logs below resulted. http://www.datazap.me/u/135pats/4th-gear-revised-pi?log=0&data=1-4-18-24 http://www.datazap.me/u/135pats/3-4-revised-pi?log=0&data=1-4-10-14-18-24&zoom=9-64 AFRs are in much better shape, but now it appears that fuel pressure is struggling a bit. I don't like seeing that type of PSI delta on the low pressure side. 23 PSI and straight corn so this is certainly the outer edge of what STG2 LPFP is meant to handle. Looks like my dumb idea to not do STG3 off the bat is biting me in the ass, my mistake but a good datapoint for prospective single turbo folks. Trims are out of whack so either we need to add scalar, or it's just a reflection of fuel pressure not having enough juice. I should note the car still threw a wideband "trimming" and wideband "system" code, not quite sure what to make of it. Sparknotes: Getting pretty close, appears I need more fuel on the low pressure side. Certainly in a better spot than it was a few days ago. Car feels fast.

    You can add the BBC coverage of Formula1 to that list,and QI for amusement, and that is all the BBC has since Top Gear died

    Neil- DEI also has another aluminized foil that is silver in color that reflects more IR radiation than the gold...it's also cheaper. Check for that one and compare before you purchase.

    Word. I've done the coolant reservoir relocation and am running the TFT CP, a beautifully fabricated peice. I haven't yet done it, but am planing to wrap it in DEI gold foil tape to minimize the effects of radiant heat. Neil

    Have you verified it's not an oil filter housing gasket? Those leak over that direction along the head/block interface.

    words spoken by a man with real reading comprehension! Knows that there will still be more gains, not because his work is bad, but because it's all still new enough on the platform that there is still more to try. Keep up the good work man!

    No, but it depends on how you relocate it. If you use the 335d tank in the stock 335d location, you need the TFT CP. if you make your own bracket or get VM to make you one, then you can use any CP(to my knowledge). Only downside to the TFT CP is that it's made of stainless and not aluminum. So, it will absorb the radiant engine bay heat and hold onto it way longer than an aluminum one.

    Looks like the trio of presenters which clearly made Top Gear not just the best car show, but one of the most entertaining things on television, have all decided to depart the show. I look forward to their future endeavours, likely together. I think this is a great opportunity for them to start something similar, but still new and not restrained by the BBC. Now the only thing worth while on the BBC is David Attenborough's voice. I still can't believe the Discovery Channel cast Sigourney Weaver for the narration of Planet Earth. http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/apr/24/top-gear-richard-hammond-james-may-jeremy-clarkson

    It's still leaking oil? yes, both of those check valves go to intake and exhaust vanos oil ports. They don't need to be changed, unless you're having issues with them. (leaking or whatever) We clean them and stick'em back in.

    Go find me a S85 cylinder head, I have an S65 head on the bench. i'll go flow em. We're always looking for more. we've had 3 revisions since the first head we CNC'ed. Small changes, but still- changes. In the process of cutting up a bad head so we can really push the port limits without sacrificing a coolant passage :D Nah, we'll see some more gains- for sure. well, come get on the list then :)

    Looking at the VSRF CP, but is it safe to say that any aftermarket CP that eliminates the stock DVs allows room for the coolant overflow tank?

    Nope. Remember that AFR is a mass ratio and obviously gas is much denser than air... so when you convert to a volume ratio the fuel is not a significant part of the picture.
