    Chris, do you think this is good/ ideal fitment? Would you or Tony fit this to your car? I really do not think this should be being sold as fits RHD do you? VPG make some good products but this is not one of them in terms of fitment. It needs a complete redesign. At the very least warn potential RHD customers that modification is required on your site before they can purchase!

    RSL replied to a thread Scaled (3-column) map discussion in N54
    Thanks Jeff, good luck! Good questions. Yes, yes and yes. AFAIK, it's always been the hard cap for boost target regardless of load targets, BLMs, etc. When scaled, it's based on the readable (reported to DME) boost and throttle closures are active when exceeding target. When boost pops up to 22psi during shifts, it closes the throttle. http://www.datazap.me/u/rsl/v5m?log=2&data=4-7-17-20&solo=20&zoom=83-102 Surely, you're correct on the other counts of unknown tables getting the scaled readings. I just commented the other day that I wondered if the lower reported boost or MAF readings were making things less touchy somewhere. If/when I get to a point where it's obvious that boost has reached a max for 93 octane, it might be worth it (or at least interesting) to go back and rescale to the lower ratio and see if anything noticeable changes and one I'd be keen to watch is fuel trims. Fuel trims are pretty high compared to the unscaled map and I did bump up the scalars. Not sure if it's some side effect of scaling, but they are easily ballpark of the same values that produced near 0% STFTs on the unscaled map. They are relatively flat and don't think I want to move AFR at the moment, so I'll leave them on the back burner unless they start closing in on 30% at some point. I've been slowly working on torque output and testing shifts, but had no issues even when it was pretty low (for DCT) ramping 540-640nm by 5500RPM. I didn't test any shifts with it that low though.

    The E46 M3 transmission bushings are a direct fit and definitely stiffer than the stock bushings however your experience depends on how worn your stock bushings are I think. When I swapped them into mine I noticed maybe only a mild improvement in shift feel. The gearbox still feels very notchy. Others have done this same swap and reported a much larger improvement. That may have been due to more worn bushings >100,000kms. Mine only had about 35,000kms on them. On the plus side, there is definitely no NVH increase from the M3 bushings so you can't really go wrong unless you install them incorrectly.

    Your experience is interesting as my experience with a SMFW, twin plate and different trans and engine mounts is very different to yours. I had stock motor mounts and E46 M3 trans mounts and then I installed the exact same MOTIV flywheel and clutch setup that you have. My idle chatter was minimal at best with the AC off and mild to moderate with it on and I have chatter during take off but I didn't get much in the way of any transmission noise. I installed some UUC poly blue isolated poly trans mounts and noticed maybe only a slight increase in transmission noise and then I followed that up by installing AD engineering poly motor mounts and got some moderate vibration from the engine as well as engine noise but no change at all in the transmission NVH. After that I swapped out the UUC blues for some UUC poly red bolt through trans mounts and got maybe some mild to moderate increase in transmission noise but still nothing like bolts in a can. I definitely didn't notice any negative effects on the way the car shifted or the clutch performed from swapping engine and trans mounts. It actually made shifting much more direct and enjoyable although the transmission can still sometimes be a little bit notchy. I would have gone the Motiv solid mounts but when I tried to order them they told me they didn't have any in stock and weren't planning on making any more and refunded my money. I use straight redline MT-90 in my trans. If the price is right I'm happy to take your transmission mounts and give them a go in my car. Should be interesting as I stripped out the interior the other day. Everything except the dash and the headliner pretty much.

    I want to change load breakpoints in my Timing table BUT I want timing to pretty much be where it is now. What I need is a spreadsheet where I can copy/paste the old map and breakpoints then a second table on the sheet where I can specify breakpoints and the cell values are formulas based on calculating the new value based on the old and new breakpoints. Anyone keen? I'm going to have a think and a go at it tonight, but I prob won't have any luck. Such a spreadsheet would be handy for changing breakpoints in all sorts of tables.

    The speed of the OEM fan is controlled by the DME, it's not just on/off or high/low/off. It's more complicated than that. Trying to use a simple universal cooling fan won't jive well with the OEM setup. I'm not sure how the DME controls the fan exactly though. You may end up with a mess of codes too. Buy a used unit from a junkyard. I'm sure you could grab one for under $200. Given how rarely they fail (this is the first time I've heard of it), a junkyard unit is a safe bet, IMO.

    ajehoti started a thread Replacing engine in N54
    Have a colleague who is replacing motor in his 335i, its a 2007 and he is getting a motor from a 2008 535xi and its auto. His car is RWD and that one is obviously all wheel drive. I was told all you had to replace was the oil pan and transfer flywheel over and what not considering they are both 8-bolt. Is this true and is there more involved, he is trying to buy motor tomorrow. Thanks.

    Get the bmw PPK/1M/335IS fan. It's 850w compared to the stock 600w. You'll also need IS relays, harness etc. No PPK software according to this thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=591900&page=2

    Here's a log I made several months ago: http://datazap.me/u/ferocity02/wgdc-0-cruising?log=0&data=7-8-9-10-11-12-23-26 Stock turbos w/ 10k miles New injectors 3k miles ago New coils OEM plugs with 13k miles Walnut blast 10k ago VANOS cleaned 8k miles ago DP's, inlets, DCI, 5" FMIC MHD Stage 2 91 tune I took this log to catch the WDGC dropping to 0% randomly. Anyone know why this might be happening?

    I have a 2009 135i coupe. My cooling fan just died and I see a replacement fan assembly is going to cost me ~$560 from FCP Euro, ECS, and even WorldPac. The price seems a bit ridiculous for just an electric fan imo. So, I was wondering what aftermarket alternatives there are? I see a mishimoto slim 8" fan: https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/mushimoto-cooling-fan-mmfan-8 I also found this company: http://www.zirgo.com/fan_selector_options.php?item=ZFB8 But, it only has a positive and negative connection. The BMW's has a sensor wire. Are there any adapter kits or something? Or will I have a code for it all the time if I don't use a BMW fan assembly? Has anyone done anything but stock? I'm in south florida and it gets pretty hot doing back to back pulls, so it would be advantageous for me to possibly "upgrade" now to a better fan while replacing it too. Thanks!

    You can't compare the old 58mm with the 6062 gen2. The 6062gen2 is what you want. It will out spool AND out power a 6262... it's a bad bitch!
