    Orb replied to a thread BMS Replacement PCV in N54
    This value is suppose to open only under deceleration when manifold vacuum is greater than the air intake on bank 2. The 2nd value at the air intake has bleed through so it balance the system with out damaging the engine. This is tuned system so messing with the orifice size and the valve cracking pressure is not wise thing to do. During idle an all other load the value should be shut. In short, the system is driven by the differential pressure between the inlet manifold and bank 2 pre turbo air inlet. The valve spring load is suppose to nothing but hold the assembly together and provide valve seating during activation. I am sure RB has the cracking pressure value. This system can cause many problem secondary problems . If there is a vacuum leak on bank 2 pre turbo air inlet you get + fuel trims since valve opens unless the intake manifold is grater than 0 PSI.. Many issue for this engine are directly related to intake leaks pre turbos which range from repeating engine oil leaks to over spooling over a single turbo...most problems like this go unsolved.

    I replaced all my vacuum lines and T fittings. My Y fitting from my diverter valves was cracked a different T fitting was broken and 4 hoses had holes. Explains a lot

    CKI@Motiv - I wasn't attempting to insult you or Motiv. I believe Motiv makes some great products, just none of them that I feel the need to use. My prices are off of your website man, that's why I was asking about it... not wanting to have a size contest here... but, I literally got the information from your website... I've seen a couple of the "lite" tune files and I would say that they honestly need a JB4 on them for safety and control...Im over on *********** as well, I just dont see you guys getting as butt hurt over there... As far as Joe's playboi is concerned... where in the hell did that come from??? Lol. There were requests for volunteers to further assist in developing the app, I raised my hand to help... not for Joe, he isn't paying me, but for the BMW community as a whole! But your missing what the BB App is... it's a flasher and logger just like the MHD application... BUT!!! Its also a full tuning and diagnostics application as well, for both the engine and transmission... I'm not trying to compete with Martial, he has a great product, I just want something different. I've been using the MHD app for over a year now and I like it for a flashing utility. However, I believe that programming your injectors, battery change, Alpina transmission flash, SZL alignment... and the list goes on.. but I also want to tune my engine and transmission within the same application, but not just my BMW 335i, my other vehicles as well...

    Terry@BMS replied to a thread Motiv Boostbox Question in N54
    It took a few hrs of programming due to how the timers and prescalars are multiplexed but given what the DME is capable of seems like it should be very straight forward. If you can get it down to 100hz it's not that far off. Anyway I had an idea for a simple converter that could retail for say $99, and we'd make good money on it, but not sure it's worth the effort. Better product might be a new solenoid that can run at higher speed? Anyway I'll keep the gears turning on this end. Had a flash only customer come up to me at No Fly Zone and lament his JB4 removal and how easy it was to change maps and tuning at the track when he needs. I think more and more single turbo guys will start to see what they are missing not running a JB4 when the dust settles and they are outside earshot of their pro boost box tuners. Not only is it cheaper and easier but does so much more for them. :)

    Haha thats funny, go ahead and call us out out of every other tuner. First off your prices are all wrong, second, if your going to be Joe's little playboi because you helped develop the new BB flasher, we mine as well remove our subscription(s) all together, it doesnt bother us one bit. We never post because we dont have the time to deal with this BS, plus we have spool street anyways when we do. BTW EVERYONE has the rights to the bytes some of them sooner than others do to beta but it'll be on the next XDF release anyone who has the latest BB FW has the tables. So nice try, Its funny how 100% of real tuners on this platform prefer flash only over piggyback, and considering the issues we had during initial release people still prefer to stay with it or even go manual boost control.

    Didn't realize it was happy hour on the east coast... sort of live in Houston... so, just wondering, when will the others of us be able to utilize the features of the boost box? I'm just seeing if it is really necessary to not let everyone in on the byte changes so that the people who purchase them can modify the tunes for themselves and flash with any tool that they so desire? Or will this be specifically for the MHD flashing utility?

    It is 100% NOT necessary to purchase a Motiv tune for it to work correctly. Countless other tuners have tuned their customers' cars running the boost box, and I believe all the big name tuners have been provided with the necessary few bytes. They are also available upon request from any verified customer. See above. Hook a 3-port mac up the the DME without a JB4, and see what happens. Have fun running "all the boost" or "none of the boost" with no control. DME is 300hz. I can get it down a little under 100Hz easily. Past that, I would need to waste who knows how many hours digging into the tricore global timer array and prescalers code. Not the best use of my hours right now. Seriously? You struggled to figure out scaling pwm output frequency down to 30hz on the JB4, a platform where YOU designed the hardware and the high level source code. If I had that luxury it would be done in under 5 minutes on msd8x. Dude, you waited 1hr 20min during friday happy hour time EST? Come on now.

    Also FWIW I still don't understand why they even need an add on box to do it flash only. The box is only changing the frequency from 250hz to 30hz on the solenoid output. They really can't figure out how to make that speed change in the DME? Someone who believes in conspiracy theories might raise an eyebrow here. ;)

    cloud9blue replied to a thread Motiv Boostbox Question in N54
    Boostbox lets the dme to control the Mac solenoid instead of relying on an external boost controller, when implemented correctly it is a more reliable solution especially if you have an automatic transmission, since the transmission will see the correct load at all time. The challenge is that the stock PID algorithm for stock frame twin turbos donít work well for external wastegates on the single turbo setup. Guys at Motiv have to rewrite most of the boost control tables, hence the extra cost for a lite tune. i am happy to buy that boostbox from your friend if thatís still available lol.
