    Sticky, you should implement a multiple quote feature :* Haha anyway, most of us n54 guys are not running 700hp, and we are running more of a street setup with track tendencies. This is why I see using a 17" setup more logical. A full drag setup? Of course that's a different story. Someone just do it already ;)

    Sticky Are we adjusting the -1 point per fumble to -2/3 this year? Also are we still not rewarding returning yards this year?

    I would not attempt to change a gap that much when there are alternatives available that are closer to what you need. This is what caused your issue. The manufactures recommend not changing the gap on these plugs as it is, although we can safley get away with minor adjustments. Look at the actual part number. As I stated in my first posts, they all mean something in how the plug is constructed. It has already been covered, the major difference is the gap. It could cause some minor issues. The fact we can modify the knock tables trumps any of this now.

    The last number is gap. If the ground strap is to bent or not perfect than it could cause misfires. The only difference between the 2 plugs is the gap in which they come out of the box with

    Anyone ever confirm the N54 actually had that implemented? I was under the impression it was the crystals in the DI injectors providing cyl condition feedback. I'm thinking enough people have been running different plugs for long enough, if there were going to be a problem, we would've seen it by now. Cool stuff though. 6043 is 2 ranges colder than stock per 3000gt. Not sure what you're setup is, but if it's not single turbo with big boost, those plugs aren't reaching temp = automatic fail. Edit: sorry, misread, they are 7s. I need sleep apparently :) Not sure what would cause that if they are otherwise similar to 5992s.

    are you shure that the NGK ILZKAR7A10 P/N NGK 6043 is mostly equivalent to ILZKBR7A? My car misfires at 10PSI with it gaped at 0.6mm

    A respected Palmerston North teacher has been farewelled with a powerful haka. About 1700 boys gave the emotional haka at a service last Friday for the popular Palmerston North Boys' High teacher Dawson Tamatea. A video of the haka, posted to You Tube two days ago, has been viewed more than 70,000 times. Tamatea, 55, died in his sleep on June 20. He was a teacher at the school for about 30 years. He was farewelled by hundreds of mourners in the school's hall last Friday.

    Câu chuyện dưới đây xảy ra lâu lắm rồi bên Do Thái. *** Một ngày kia, khi những viên chức chính phủ đang sữa chữa, xây cất một chuồng ḅ th́ họ trông thấy trong góc nhà có một cái ổ chuột. Họ bèn dùng dùng khói đuổi mấy con chuột trong đó chạy ra. Một hồi sau quả thật có chuột chạy ra, từng con, từng con một... câu chuyện về hai con chuột Sau đó mọi người nghĩ rằng chuột đi hết rồi. Nhưng khi họ vừa mới bắt đầu dọn dẹp th́ thấy hai con chuột nữa đang chen nhau ra khỏi miệng ổ. Sau một hồi cố gắng, cuối cùng hai con lọt ra được. Điều lạ là sau khi ra ngoài ổ, hai đứa không chạy đi liền mà đuổi nhau ở gần lối ra, dường như con này đang muốn cắn đuôi con kia. Mọi người kinh ngạc lại gần coi thử, th́ họ thấy một con bị mù, không thấy ǵ cả, c̣n con kia đang cố gắng để cho con mù cắn đuôi nó, để nó kéo con mù đi tẩu thoát. Sau khi chứng kiến sự việc xảy ra, ai nấy đều xúc động, không nói nên lời. Tới giờ ăn, nhóm người ngồi quây quần và bắt đầu bàn luận về những ǵ xảy ra giữa hai con chuột. Một viên chức La Mă nghiêm nghị nói:" Tôi nghĩ mối quan hệ giữa hai con chuột đó cũng giống như giữa vua và quan". Những người kia nghĩ một hồi rồi nói:" Th́ ra thế!" Viên chức La Mă rất lấy làm hănh diện. Một người Do Thái khôn ngoan lên tiếng:" Tôi nghĩ mối quan hệ giữa hai con chuột đó giống như là vợ với chồng". Mấy người kia ngẫm nghỉ một hồi nữa, ai cũng thấy có lư, đồng tán thành. Nói xong, mặt người Do Thái lộ vẻ măn nguyện. Một người Trung Hoa, quen với truyền thống rất mạnh mẽ ở Trung Hoa là hiếu thuận với cha mẹ, nói: "Tôi nghĩ mối quan hệ giữa hai con chuột kia cũng giống như t́nh nghĩa mẹ con". Những người kia lại nghĩ một hồi nữa, cảm thấy điều này có lư hơn. Họ tỏ ư tán thành lần nữa. Gương mặt người Trung Hoa bộc lộ nét khiêm tốn chuyên nghiệp. Lúc đó, một người hay làm phúc, đầu óc đơn thuần đang ngồi dưới đất chống tay lên cằm, nh́n mấy người kia vẻ hoang mang: "Hai con chuột kia sao lại phải có quan hệ với nhau chứ?" Thời gian bỗng nhiên dừng lại. Cả toán vẻ mặt sững sờ, nh́n về phía người kia, không nói một lời. Viên chức La Mă, người Do Thái, và người Trung Hoa, ba người lên tiếng lúc năy đều cúi đầu xấu hổ, không dám trả lời. Thật vậy, t́nh thương vô điều kiện không dựa vào lợi lộc, t́nh bạn, sự thủy chung hay huyết thống. Thật ra nó không cần một quan hệ nào cả.

    One advantage of hanging around here for a long time is remembering old topics and issues that pass by. The OEM spark plugs not only deliver a spark. They also play a role in pre detecting knonk in the engine. http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?9490-One-reason-the-N54-ECU-is-so-good-at-detecting-knock-even-before-it-actually-happened SO swapping stock spark plugs for other spark plugs is not always a good idea and can introduce other issues with the engine.

    Also he was running a bias ply. When launching a manual hard like that a bias ply will have more give to it cushioning the blow somewhat which is important if you want to leave the line with your rear end coming with you.

    Then that professional driver was Shiv because he drove it himself. Say what you want but he can drive and deserves respect for his pass. People like to hate him but at least get it right when doing so.

    No, he doesn't. The reason you see 17 and 18 inch drag radials today is because these modern cars that are drag racing come with large rotors and wheels from the factory. The damn Porsche 911 wears 20 inch factory rims now. Why anyone would be against 'too much tire' or 'too much sidewall' when trying for a record ET is beyond me as that goes against the entire point of drag racing. Even all wheel drive cars like the GTR are going to slicks with a ton of sidewall to hook. 17 and 18 inch drag radials are fine for people who want to use off the shelf rim solutions (maybe even the OEM rim) or who aren't trying to set records but if you are going all out you might as well do it right.

    No offense to you Tony I was drag racing E9X's years before you ever decided to get into this market and I doubt you have ever cut a 60 foot close to what I have. Just because you hook does not mean it is enough tire. The difference between hooking and doing a 1.7x and 1.6x is 2-3/10's in the 1/4 mile. Both are hooking but clearly one is hooking better than the other. Secondly, going to a 15 inch 'slick' is not a waste with 700+ whp. Frankly, with that much power you want the extra sidewall so it is easier on the driveline. This is drag racing 101.

    It's not so much subtract, but as rpm/speed increase the numbers trend down slightly, so I'd usually just round down so it gets the gear right as the shift is a massive change in values. But strictly speaking you don't really have to subtract anything. Thing is, we can calculate all day based on gear ratios, but if you can't log the actual channels, it's just better to err on the low end of the values. Regardless, it will be much more accurate than you have now. The bmw speedo seems to read high irl so you may want to consider that in the math as well. Example- 7000rpm/60kph= 116.667 but if bmw uber accurate speedo reads high, 7000/65=107.69 and if you used the higher value, you'll see a gear change in a log. The actual gear change will lead to like 5000/65=76.9 so there's wiggle room
