    Yes... We are on hold for the TopHats, there was a delay in the production of these parts... This is the only thing holding us so far, they promised to ship early next week, so hopefully within 10 days we gonna have some images of the real thing working =) And there`s more... Because of the constant advances on the V8 engines, we have made an even bigger system to be released together with the S3 LPFP, capable of 1000+ LPH fueling, meanted to fuel the big S63R builds with E85 with no sweat, everything inside the stock fuel tank...

    I agree. That's probably why it made my trans slip. Many months after I flashed it I did come across the same thing you did indicating it's for the N52.

    Thanks 93Siro!! Subaru, I started out thinking it would be very much like the old kit, but one thing leads to another and the suspension totally diverged. Four corner F360/430 suspension, with the BMW 3.85 diff. I started with the OEM mounting points for reference, narrowed the track width, stretched the wheel base (but still shorter than the stock Bugatti by 6") and went from there. Very low roll center--roughly 2.75" above ground. Somewhat of an estimated guess on COG until its built and can get weights. Basically started by keeping the lower control arm mounts, camber, castor and chassis height aggresive OEM settings, and adjusting the front and rear upper mounts for instant center, anti squat and anti dive, etc. Ultimately, I think its close and there's a lot of adjustment capability built in with shims. LHIW!!!

    BMW does not seem to know what the hell it is doing. They are making money but they certainly seem a bit lost. Way back in 2013 BMW said they would not mix the BMW 'i' and 'M' brands. BimmerBoost stated at the time that was an idiotic position to take. Well, someone at BMW seems to have finally caught onto common sense and what this website was writing years ago. The vice president of sales and marketing over at BMW M Peter Quintus stated the following: No kidding, genius. While electric cars are the future their current appeal is more from an efficiency standpoint than high performance. The truth is, you need a hybrid layout for now or you can simply ditch the heavy batteries and electric drivetrain and gain efficiency the old fashioned way by keeping weight down. When it comes to high performance internal combustion still rules the day. BMW got ahead of itself with the 'i' brand and now they are stuck. The i8 simply does not offer performance anywhere near on par with cars in its price range or even those that are cheaper. It's a nice little project but BMW invested a ton of money in a science experiment. Maybe BMW is starting to get it? BMW is just learning now that electric powertrains are heavy? Regarding M versions of the 'i' brand cars including the i8 here is what Quintus said: Shut the hell up about brand values. The only thing BMW values is money which is exactly what the end of his statement reinforces when referencing shareholders. Don't talk about brand values when you make front wheel drive BMW's that are rebadged Mini's and don't even sell an M version of your only two-seater. You sold out your so-called values a long time ago. An M version of the i8 makes all the sense in the world considering what BMW has already spent on the platform. If they can make money on it, they will build it. The only thing dictating BMW's product portfolio these days is what is best for the bottomline. Keep in mind BMW's 'values' sway with the wind: BMW suddenly goes from M and 'i' never mixing to now saying 'Absolutely!' it will happen. This company has lost its identity, values nothing beyond money, and simply does not know what it is doing. Source

    I don't have Carr. It just was kind of sad to see him struggle like that. I like the way the Raiders are playing. Not surprised they lost just surprised Carr couldn't get much of anything going but he is injured and it was 20 degrees so of course these are factors. KC is a great team.

    Yes, but you can't use the MHD display and the P3 gauge at the same time. One or the other. Neil

    V8Bait replied to a thread n54 shifts at 7500 rpm, vid in N54
    At high rpm a hydraulic lifter can have either too much bleed down, meaning there's not enough time to refill between rotations leading to loss of lift/duration; or it can retain too much oil and pump up, leading to something like valve float. To run high boost/high rpm you need high spring pressure, but when you increase the spring rate over what the lifter was designed for you compound the issues it has to deal with especially with bleed down effects. Maybe somebody will come out with higher rpm lifters with less bleed down, as that's what I presume the issue is.

    This is more of a feel-good post, car is all well and good now. I was finishing up day 1 of my two day shoot in Irvine yesterday, moving on to our second location. I got on the freeway, hit it in 2nd gear and it sounded like I blew a coilpack or had a fuel pump problem. My tablet was dead and useless in the glovebox, so no MHD or JB4 readings available. Still haven't gotten around to picking up the bluetooth JB4 connector, which would have been helpful since my phone was charged. I also had gone through my two spare coilpacks in the last year or so at some point, so no reserves. Lucky for me, I was 6 miles away from Irvine BMW. I made it to the dealer, used the JB4 code readout from the gauges, concluded it was a 29D0 4th cylinder misfire. Ran into BMW, purchased a new coilpack for $76, no questions asked. So happy they didn't go through the ropes and ask for my vin etc... Lucky me, my tripod mount on my camera and some other bits of gear I use are all allen-based, so I had a metric multi allen tool in my bag. So, I decided I'd get to work in the BMW Service parking lot. If this was cylinder 5 or 6, I'd have been screwed. I removed the front two allen bolts on the engine cover, pulled and twisted it up and to the side with just enough room to remove the 4th cylinder coilpack. Dropped the new one in, fired it up, and was back on the road. Made it to the last location and finished my shoot at sunset with only a minor delay. Happy Friday, dudes. And thanks Terry@BMS for this old but still awesome feature which saved me in a pinch.

    Did you start Carr? You must not have seen his prior performance against KC. Then when you add in the broken pinky, cold weather, and playing at KC...

    Hmm... I wonder why someone even suggested using this one. Is there anymore info on this? This is the first I've heard of it. Will the flasher come with maps or is it just the software/interface to read/write the TCU?
