    I m running VM ST, I do have the latest firmware and latest MHD flash. And I still have the issue.. I know it does not sound normal. And I'm sad is not working right. Terry said it below 200 jb4 make it work. Above 200 the ECu take over. But this is a problem even at when not above 200. so I'm looking to see if some one from the N54 enthusiast saw the post about the same issue and can post a link for me. Thx..

    Brady is going to have a hard time with this in court. For me I would throw the suspension out entirely but the NFL is fighting him tooth and nail: http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/13332578/new-england-patriots-quarterback-tom-brady-nflpa-likely-come-short-court-challenge-roger-goodell-decision They already fired the first legal salvo. It's going to be hard to overturn this. Institutions are getting way too powerful.

    This bend is added to the charge pipe. This pic is with the PI plate on.

    Room for days ;) The 3" outlet is where things get tight. Your charge pipe will need to be modified to accept the 3" coupler the intercooler comes with.

    I've been on hiatus recently - kid in college, remember? Damn, I just learned about MHD...I thought BB free flash was still the rage!

    Terry, you are probably right about this. But keep in mind that I've been a Cobb user ever since it became available for the N54 in 2010-2011...first V2, then ATR, and now the V3 which I love...I've got a lot of emotional/technical investment in this thing!

    Sell the Cobb and buy a used jb4, n20 tmap sensor, and load a free bb back end flash map. That will set you up for 500whp and put money in your pocket. :)

    ^ SCGT, this is great, sound and sober advice. Your're right, I shouldn't be pushing the hardware while I'm budget-conscious. Peace.

    Hmmm....I really can't shell out for a JB4 right now, but thanks for the advice. I'm hoping to modify my current E40-E50 flash only map in ATR to accept higher boost / higher torque limits. I'd splurge for an N20 TMAP sensor if there is a well-worn flash map strategy for doing this. Anybody have any other ideas?:confusion-shrug:

    I don't know if its been asked, but would these fit a Z4 35i? I know there's a few pipes out there that claim to fit both but many do not. Curious as the warranty on our Z4 35i is now out and the car is going to get a few mods :3

    An interesting photo was posted from a BMW technical document on the BimmerBoost forums that gives a quick and easy overlay of the BMW N54 and N55 valvetrains including their VANOS camshaft adjustment ranges. The N54 and N55 of course are similar turbocharged and direct injected inline-6 motors sharing the same bore and stroke. They clearly are tuned a bit differently (due to the N55 being single turbo for one) and the N55's addition of Valvetronic plays a role. The N55 has a wider range of intake and exhaust VANOS adjustment as well as larger intake valve lift and cam duration compared to the N54 as the tech document highlights. Potentially the N55 can breathe better up top namely with a large turbo upgrade although tuning VANOS as well as Valvetronic is complicated. VANOS alone is a difficult system to tune and we have yet to see aftermarket VANOS cams working for the N54 or N55 motors. An interesting comparison nonetheless.

    Great find! I just read through that whole thread. They made some huge steps. Two conclusions. 1. Looks like they are stuck on RSA crypto stuff. see posts 226 and 233 2. Holy cow is the TCU logic complex! I had no idea. Definitely worth reading to get a feel for what is going on, and maybe someone with the right background could get to that same point on the 6HP21 box. Way beyond my present skill set but it is intriguing. One of the last posts (240) implies somebody may be still cranking away on it, but it is nearly a month old.

    Not exactly though. They will be more forgiving both for driving mistakes, prep, and as far as absorbing shock. I'm not saying you have to run 15 inch tires but it certainly is worth exploring considering the quickest time is with a bias-ply slick which means the car is responding well to a softer compound with more sidewall as it of course should.

    Nope, all you need is 15" slicks, nothing else. Just ask Sticky, 15" slicks and your car will magically transform into a wheelie pulling, 8 second machine.

    And let the misquoting begin, if anyone went back and read the first post, the entire post was made to state. THE TIRES ARE NOT the issue with the N54's running 11's MANY other things are. Are 15" wrinkle walls a better tire for the strip, by all means if you need them, they will knock you down some serious 60 ft's, and ET's. But when you can't even break loose a 17" slick with a hard launch, throwing a 15" slick on there is going to do what exactly, nothing! They are running 4 15" slicks my guess because they NEED THEM, if you can launch hard enough with a transbrake etc to lose traction on drag radials, then fuck yes throw some soft wall slicks on in, and go for it. If you are dropping the clutch at 5500, and not breaking traction on a drag radial, or stiff sidewall slick, throwing a set of fucking 15' slicks on there is A WASTE OF FUCKING TIME, AND MONEY! Next time read all posts instead of jumping into the middle of one of stickys Bullshit I know everything rants, and not even remotely arguing the point of the conversation.

    Honestly though, where have you seen them post or advertise forum wise. I really have never seen it. Maybe I will email them. I just ordered my 4th turbo install shit and random gaskets for an engine change last week and more stuff this week. I think they do good business and ship stuff on time with reasonable prices on both parts and shipping

    Oh there is zero reason this thing wont be installed. I haven't test fit it yet, just looks close. Just means more work for me, which I already have enough of. Running the PS lines together, and throwing the cooler in a box, are option A, if it doesn't fit.

    Well this car will never see a road course as long as it lives, so I highly doubt I will have that issue.

    Tony to be honest, I'd lose all respect for you if A. The ps cooler was a reason you didn't install the piece of art. OR B that was the reason you didn't install it. Or you couldn't come up with a solution after all you've done

    E-mail them and tell them this. They don't hate money. I see them advertising their BMW parts in the wrong place.
