    Honestly, most of their buyers for this will be customers they already know and contacts they already have. I wish you luck man.

    If that is the reality, i will advise buyers away from them... I can easily fabricate my own kit... i would still use Twin PTE 5558 turbos as entry level and offer anything up to twin PTE6466 for built motor setups, that should easily put out up to 1000whp... My client has given the green light that we fabricate our own setup on his car if Gintani fail to reply in the next two weeks, and if there is interest we can build more and sell... I would be willing to sell the exhaust manifolds alone, also we would offer them with V-Band, T3 and T4 flange configurations... I can however not supply tuning, i will keep you guys updated...

    Yes. I just double checked, it was that too much intake advance up top caused knock. Spool and midrange were advanced 35* on the intake cam, tapered off to 10* finally at 7.5k. Any more than 10* though, would cause knock. Also, a very slight retard on the exhaust helped as well up top.

    Let's not spoil the winner just yet. You probably already saw the contenders from MotorTrend's World's Greatest Drag Race 4. MotorTrend takes the same vehicles from their driver's car competition and drag races them as well which is fine of course although the best driver's car likely is not the best drag racing car. The list of cars in the competition is the Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW i8, BMW M4, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Subaru STI, and Volkswagen GTI. These cars run a spread from $25,000 to close to $200,00.00. It is nice that there is something here as representation that can fit almost everyone's pocketbook but the performance spread is pretty large. It would be more useful to compare more cars of the same class than picking a couple from the lower end and a couple from the higher end. No Mustang? No Challenger Hellcat? No Viper? No Huracan? No GT3? No AMG? Come on guys, what is this? Here are the results in the order of how the cars finished from worst to first based on driving impressions (not just the raw laptime). Randy Pobst is again doing the driving on a newly repaved VIR racetrack making comparisons to last year not exactly apples to apples. 10. Volkswagen Golf GTI 9. Jaguar F-Type R Coupe 8. BMW i8 7. Subaru WRX STI 6. Ford Fiesta ST 5. BMW M4 4. Nissan GT-R Nismo 3. Porsche 911 Turbo S 2. Alfa Romeo 4C 1. Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 If you were to order the cars in order of laptimes, the result would be: 10. Ford Fiesta ST - 1:51.25 9. Volkswagen GTI - 1:50.11 8. Subaru WRX STI - 1:47.16 7. BMW i8 - 1:44.29 6. Alfa Romeo 4C - 1:43.78 5. Jaguar F-Type Coupe R - 1:42.01 4. BMW M4 - 1:39.69 3. Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 - 1:37.82 2. Porsche 911 Turbo S - 1:35.62 1. Nissan GTR Nismo - 1:35.51 The Camaro Z/28 takes the title as the best driver's car and from this group. You have a 7.0 liter LS7 V8 revving to 7000 rpm offering glorious response under the hood, a manual transmission, huge 305mm wide tires at all four corners, and a car built around cornering and not just horsepower or acceleration. It is the car you would want to drive on an empty canyon road and the most rewarding of the group. It is the best driver's car. Source

    Usually with no overlap at high RPM will cause knock. Although our high compression engines allow us to not have to need as much to wash the cylinder, its always good to have some to scavange exhaust as much as possible and have the cleanest cylinder as possible. This also helps with in-cylinder cooling (hence knock reduction)

    Sticky replied to a thread n54 cylinder head and injectors in N54
    How many forced induction N52 kits do you see? Some people have cracked the ECU (like Dinan) but Valvetronic is another element to tuning. Just like VANOS is another element to tuning. There are benefits I'm just saying the technology is not for maximum performance and isn't even necessary for high performance tuning due to its downsides. If I take an M3 without valvetronic and you take an N52 guess who is going to make more power?

    I really don't think you read this thread at all. As the N54 doesn't have valvetronic and you agree it is un realistic to adapt it to an N54 the discussion is pretty much done. If you want to try and tune a big power valvetronic motor head over to the N55 forum. TTYL.

    I used to run Bosch injectors off 6:1 FMUs at around 130psi and never had any issues with them. These will be running at a fixed 70psi. So at 30psi in the manifold only a 40psi differential.

    I'm just going to tee it in to the factory low pressure line and evaluate it. I've heard it works fine. At the first sign of problem though I'll redo the low pressure system.

    Some photos of the new intercooler and front bumper support. I was hoping to save 20# with both but wound up only saving 12#. The factory bumper support was lighter than expected. On the plus side this intercooler is much higher quality than the eBay one I was running previously, and now I have a full 2.5" outlet pipe instead of the factory 2.2" piece. Not to mention the old intercooler was held up with zip-ties. This one is firmly mounted to the new bumper support. Overall impressed with the end result. :drinking:

    In other news I am glad NE's Defense (with the exception of my man Jerod Mayo) and their offense shit the bed. Went into Monday down by 3 (Antoine had NE D) and walked out with a 27pt win putting me at the top.

    So.. minor update. I plan on resetting octane/adaptations, but for the life of me can't find the proper procedure, I know there is a specific thread out there that has you do it with the car running.. but I can't for the life of me find it. Also, I found an old photo from 2011 where I was having leaking injectors.. on cylinder 2 and 5, so now I'm curious if the dealership coded them correctly. I'll buy an INPA cable, unless you can check the values in bavtech?

    You don't know how to resize a picture? The forum doesn't auto re-size sigs but I can put a cap on sig pics. Just resize it already don't make me do simple things for you.
