    Sticky replied to a thread PURE Stage 2 N54 Dyno Results! in N54
    Incredible dyno numbers here from Pure Turbos from their Stage 2 N54 turbo upgrade. If the video posted a couple days ago showing an automatic Pure Turbos upgraded 335i running away from a FBO (full bolt on) GTR did not convince you these turbos are the real deal then these dyno results definitely should. The 683 rear wheel horsepower peak figure is a new automatic stock frame turbo record on the platform. It is important to point this out with the automatic transmission being known for having issues handling power and torque on the N54 platform. Regardless, this transmission is holding and putting down some impressive numbers. Here are further details from Pure Turbos as well as graphs at multiple boost levels: We strapped the car to the dyno one more time this morning. Reminder: This is an auto trans car, running e50 + meth, and stg1 inline LPFP! First three runs were: file_18 - Map3 add 70 - 601whp file_19 - Map6 28psi to redline - 657whp file_20 - Map6 30psi to redline - 679whp We then bumped boost to 30.9 for a few runs, messed with duty bias a bit. Here's all the runs together: Also, here's another log from another N54 PURE stg2 car showing spool. AT car in 4th gear, stock inlets. Hits target at 3293 rpm. I don't want to hear another word about spool!!!

    BostonBeemah replied to a thread My smoking addiction... in N54
    Just got my turbo back from Comp on Saturday and put it all back together. Aside from a single puff from the initial takeoff when first driving the car, haven't seen any smoke although I do still smell it. I'm looking into doing a similar pcv setup as RobC1976 but with RBs new valves that he's supposed to be releasing soon. For now at least, the smoking has been alleviated but who knows for how long. I've only put about 30 miles on her so far but will update again soon.

    Stock coolant pipe will have to be modified facing downwards in order to fit.

    My stockers are quickly on their way out. Smoke is definitely there, and reminds me all the time they're failing. I'll be looking to upgrade soon, so I look forward to seeing more about these!

    I think 4.0 is required. I would think 4.5 would cover that, but .NET can be finicky

    Only halfway joking, I DD my car and have an awesome warranty which gives me peace of mine. I'm happy with living on the ragged edge maybe squeezing out 475whp or so.

    That is the current rumor although it is based somewhat in reality. The new G11 7-Series is rumored to get this new 3.0 liter inline-6 diesel with four turbochargers. This would be utilized in a M750d model that would have xDrive all wheel drive and would not launch until well into 2016. That is of course providing the information is accurate. BMW does produce a tri-turbo 3.0 liter inline-6 in the 550d / 50d models. The triple turbocharged motor produces 381 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque. BMW is expected to take things beyond 400 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque with this new quad turbocharged motor. It is unknown if this motor will use conventional turbochargers or if there will be some sort compressor spun with electricity to supplement the exhaust driven turbos. It is too early to tell at this time but even if BMW does produce this the chances of it coming to the USA are slim to none. Source

    It may not be worth it I just checked the price of a new one its 31 bucks. The shipping would probably cost too much. i plan on destroying it anyway

    Good for them then. I would be worried about getting claims kicked back from BMW warranty if it is that well know about.

    I believe I have accomplished exactly this. By setting the "no engine load" and "AT in drive" tables to your desired launch idle, you can drive around like normal with the A/C on and turn it off to get the high idle. As near as I can tell, when the A/C is off the DME will target "AT in drive" but will treat "no engine load" as a ceiling so both need to be raised. When A/C is on, this exact same pairing happens with "AT in drive with A/C on" and "MT with a/c on" is the ceiling. I've been DDing around for a couple days now with all tables stock except "no engine load" and "AT in drive" tables both being set to 2000 in all cells. The ONLY side effect I've seen so far is that SOMETIMES the cold start begins high even if A/C is on from the beginning but it all comes back down to stock if you leave a/c on. I also confirmed whether it was the button or the A/C clutch that mattered. I turned the dial all the way up while it was 71F outside so the compressor was sure to stay off and the idle stayed normal since the button was still lit. The only thing I would caution is is trying to use the high idle without manually shifting. The TCU gives unexpected results and is very jerky during downshift if high idle is activated.
