    MSD80 and MSD81 are different DME hardware. You would need a new DME.

    Sounds like you're getting some knowledgeable advice. I'll add my amateur two cents on what I see -3700 rpm, Accel position 35% and 21.7 psi...That's one of those car feels fast set ups (spoiler is it is not). Stock t-map I'm assuming? I think that is the read limit, might be over spinning them now and who knows what if you hit 38% pedal -Post shift corrections kill you in the straight (in general). I'm sure some of the advice received can help with those. -lpfp and hpfp are doing ok, iat's look ok. Looks like you're getting there brotha. Good luck

    Here is a snip with the areas of interest circled. Obviously the IAT timing correction tables I have won't help you in your case as you stay well below where my corrections start but I thought I'd chuck it in. I'm thinking about starting the corrections MUCH earlier, but only very slight corrections. On a cold day with low IAT, I get no corrections every time. On a warm day with high IAT, I get corrections every time. This is what triggered me to start playing more with IAT stuff. I have the load target limit factor table set up so that as IAT rises over an average 3rd gear pull, the IAT follows as close as possible to a flat load target multiplier.

    I'm pretty sure that's real knock. I'd to a few things: - Run a bit less boost in the midrange and a bit richer AFR in general, especially at high RPM. This keeps the cylinder temperatures under control before it gets slammed into the next gear. - Change the breakpoints and values for load target limit factor (charge air temp) so that boost target is the same regardless of IAT. Your boost target is 1psi higher in 4th than it is in 3rd due to IAT. I also make my target AFR the same around my load target so that when load target is dropped a little due to IAT, the target AFR is the same, not leaner. Another thing that I'm testing myself at the moment is making a little timing be removed much earlier in charge air temp than stock (stock makes no corrections until 109F). I find that even well below that temp, there is a noticeable difference in knock threshold between say 70F and 90F, but the stock tune runs the same timing for both. That way, you still get max possible timing in the first gear of your pull (say 3rd), but when IAT is higher in the next gear (say 4th), a little timing is taken out. Your boost up top seems a little low for the WGDC (not much, just a little). Do you have catless downpipes? What intake are you running and yo you have inlets?

    The Convert replied to a thread Possible Custom Catchcan in N54
    I just have mine routed from the turbo intake filter to the bms occ to the flapper valve with a stock "cruise" side. Fixing the short comings of the system is something on my list though. I'd like to make a valve cover without all the cyclonic garbage, run 2 occs, and have a release valve with a filter on the manifold that will vent pressure if the crank case gets pressurized at all or a vacuum break if it pulls too much vacuum. The goal of course will be to provide adequate filtration and suction though.

    If I was 20 years younger in college I'd be all over this opportunity to put my stamp on widely used free flashing software. Hopefully someone from the next generation steps up to the plate for the platform. :)

    Automatic TCU flash tuning for E9X BMW's including diesel M57's and gasoline N54/N55's is almost here. xHP is working diligently and as this demo shows their product is working. This software is not complete but you can already see the shifts are firmed up a bit. They state the following: This is an Android based TCU flashing tool. You go into the app store can flash OTS (off the shelf) maps provided by xHP. The launch for the M57 diesel models is expected next month with the N54 and then N55 motors following in March.

    Hey guys, We wanted to share somthing that we've been working EXTREMELY hard on. The new, Fuel-It! S55 LPFP upgrade. A few things to highlight: - This is the first & only 100% e85 compatible LPFP - Supports 700+ Horsepower on e85 - NO modification to the stock wiring harness - NO DME errors - NO permanent modification needed, this can be returned to stock at anytime - Retains factory control of the primary pump - This must be used in conjunction with our PI + Return kit *Our first round of LPFPs are spoken for, but we will have another dozen or so available & on our website shortly* Thanks again for the support :)

    Twin 6870s? LOL! No but seriously i think 70mm is about as large as our head and intake can flow. If they made a 7074 it would probably max a n54 with ported head, larger plenum intake and high lift cams

    You'll want someone familiar with serial port communications, C#, and a basic understanding of the N54. It's relatively easy stuff. But they need a car there and to know how to implement a serial library.

    9 out of 10 times when a single is smoking it's just the drain line. Even if it's not kinked, just making sure it's positioned with a good gravity flow route can make a difference. Might just need a small adjustment. Yes keep vacuum at idle. I believe mishimoto has a good double catchcan.
