    My car should be up and running today, Jake Y has been waiting impatiently ;) At this point I don't mind being a test dummy. Car has been down since July for various reasons, but I guess that streak will continue. That said... I have faith in the guys at MOTIV to work their magic with MHD. Please keep us updated on the progress.

    I wish we had a company like you here in England. I'd have loved to have put a big DocRace single on my car. I wish you luck!

    I think it is distance too. Idle time doesn't seem to matter for me. There is a stop sign two houses down from me and like clockwork I will set VANOS faults right when I am stopping for it. This was with my old car before I sorted out the issues though.... Milan

    My bet is Sticky can read your PMs ;) Best of luck with the cams. If anyone can figure it out it's Motiv.

I'll have stuff to add but it won't be posted in this forum. Sticky might be the only oblivious one based on the PM I got.

    My guess is distance, because as I said if you leave the car idle, it will take forever to set. If you drive it X distance it sets in the same spot every time, maybe its a combo of both. You have to be moving X MPH then its X time before it does the vanos check. Not sure, but the cams did the same thing. Clear codes, idle fine, then drive it, codes would set.

    So was it distance or time based? I wonder what setting flat VANOS tables would do too.

    I don't think you are right here either. When I was having VANOS issues it was only when driving when VANOS was supposed to engage, not at idle. Just like Tony, I knew exactly how far I could make it down my street before codes would pop up like crazy.

    This is incorrect. I can have the timing completely off, and the car will start, and idle fine with no codes. I literally have it mapped out to the foot how far I need to get from the shop before it sets the cam / crank correlation code if its slipped. Trust me with all the crank issues I have had, I have done it many times. If you let it idle long enough it will eventually throw it, but were talking minutes not seconds.

    Sounds like the cams are slipping when VANOS activates to me. Most of the camshaft checks that run, run at startup and would've thrown a code off the start.

    Didn't screen shot the codes and freeze frame data? At least could get our gears turning on a fix.

    George Takei talked about positively about him being raped by at 18 yr old multiple times and no one bats an eye. The media tried everything to bring him down and like sticky said, they finally found something that worked/sticked. Personally, I think Breibart should have refused his resignation. Someone else will pick up his book it has plenty of preorders. Maher taking credit is stupid. Or how about that POS Dunham: There is nothing more than liberals and feminists hate than a conservative gay who speaks logic.

    Yes I'm getting a bit of resonance at something like 1900 rpm but overall its pretty good. No smells or anything. I was actually surprised just how clean the removed cats were on the intake side.

    I'm posting this primarily to a post I keep seeing recur in various locations online of single turbo kit vs MMP stage 3 twins. So I will give my 2 bits of info here. First of all the stock block is really only good in my opinion for low 700s absolute max 750whp for any amount of time reliabily. The block is suceptible to blown ringlands and bent rods. I've bent a rod at low 600s wtq and blown a ringland at low 700s whp, I did have a fuel issue but it did happen. Also I see many many singles that almost always end up blowing within a year if pushed to 750+whp. There are maybe 1 or 2 exceptions to the rule but almost every engine I have seen pushing big power (750+) blows, and now all those guys either sold their car with new stock motor or got a built engine. I see it on Facebook BMW groups all the time, mainly N5x enthusiasts but also in a couple larger ones also. So if going for the big power be prepared for $7000-14,000 investment in a built engine depending on your goals and options chosen. So to avoid big investment in a stock block I would target low 700s max. MMP stage 3 turbos are a great fit for that. Also all your mods you currently have for stock turbos apply. Install is just like installing stock turbos. And spool is stock like and much better than a single. I have owned a top mount FFTEC 5862 BB e92 at the same time as my stage 3 twins e92 and I loved driving the twin over the single much more. Why I liked about the single was the sound with the open WG dump but power and delivery and fun factor, twins win hands down. My customers have made on thier own cars 711whp at 30/31psi and now that customer is running 32psi and going for 35psi, he likes pushing the limit. Also many others are now running the turbos at that level so they make the power as advertised and see the results for themselves. Someone recently posted on Facebook they made 700whp on e40 with stage 2 LPFP no PI and meth injection on my turbos at 28psi and he was super happy with his results. My turbos have been selling for almost a year and have an excellent track record. I have sold over 70 sets and I take care of every single one of my customers. With the group buy going on I will get close to 100 sets sold total in the next few weeks. Options are much cheaper with MMP. Inlets and outlets when sold with turbos are just $100 each my cost, no profit. Ceramic coating is $150 form polydyn 2500F rated MUCH much higher quality than cerakote which others charge $350 for! $150 is my cost for the twins coating and I pass it on and make no markup on it. I am the only one that offers custom WPC treated bearings (more info on my website under the turbos, info and videos mmp-e.com). Also with WPC I offer twice the normal industry warranty so I offer 2 yrs warranty. The warranty I provide I stand behind it and always put the customer first before profits and treat the customer like I would like to be treated by a vendor. That's more than just words, ask anyone of my customers over the past two years since I started selling Inlets if that's the case. So one comment I see over and over is that there is not enough reviews posted so i have a page that most of my customers have joined and posted on that has all racing videos, reviews and Dyno and many many of my customers are on there and you can ask them questions directly. Here is the linkhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/964707693631304/You will find on there Dynos for several 700whp+ customers who posted, many racing videos even a video of an mmp stage 3 customer of mine beating an M6 that holds the stock turbo whp record at 780whp and 860wtq and 10.3s quarter mile in a the highway pull, and many other reviews, exhaust sounds etc etc. Most importantly, in my group above, there is a post to a group buy going on right now for $2525 for MMP stage 3 twin turbos but it closes feb 28th so if interested need to act quick for an amazing deal that has never before been offered and probably won't again for quite some time. The group already has almost 25 people. If waiting for a tax refund also I can work with you on that and timing of the payment. Any questions you can post here but for fastest reply email me at sales@mmp-e.com and you can also PM me on Facebook (Mauricio Madrid) you will find me in the Facebook group I linked above. Thanks for reading :) Mauricio owner of MMP

    A humbling experience here but a full bolt on Nissan GTR is no slouch. Neither is a BMW N54 with the Pure Stage 2 turbo upgrade. The E60 chassis is a bit heavier than your typical N54 and namely an E82 1-Series variant. Run what you brung though. This E60 belongs to BimmerBoost member @viperware and it is a strong car. His vehicle is a 2010 E60 535i with FBO, JB4, Port Injection, Pure Stage 2, RB Inlets, VTT outlets, and an MFactory LSD. It just wasn't enough.
