    10's in an AT N54 should be VERY easy if they can get a launch and the tranny to live, an MT N54 running consistent 10's will be a milestone for the platform. We have the power, now if we can just get the car to behave as it should at the track we should get it at some point. Honestly the guy who will take this stock frame record the deepest into the 10's is the guy we are sponsoring because he is the only one (so far) with a tranny upgrade to hold 650WTQ, who has already ran an 11.2. Good luck getting a stock AT with no stall to not only launch but not slip with 650WTQ.

    I think Steve may have misunderstand my email, we have placed production orders and are waiting to get the parts back before we can begin shipping. Things are moving right along though, you guys will be running 100% E85 before you know it..:)

    Right, for a turbo charged system the N54 has almost no lag. But compared to a super-responsive NA Engine (S54, S65,...) it is still laggy..it needs 2-3s for full boost! Thats why the new M4/S55 or Ferrari California T are optimised for extremly quick spool and responsive. Again, which turbo would suite that demand?

    Personally, I'd use whatever fuel scaler is appropriate for the flash only boost levels. When stacking the procede, I reduce Map 2 OL fueling to compensate for any significant swing in fuel trims when meth starts flowing. This will take some trial and error. What does Map 1 and Map 2 timing look like on the piggy? Since you're using map 2 when meth is flowing, check map 2 timing and make sure it's zero above 6000. Also, there was an input somewhere in the Advanced menu which set a hard limit on "Ignition Advance", and I think the default limit was set to 6000 RPM. I set my ideal timing on the flash, and Map 2 timing table is zeroed, and Map 1 has reduced timing for when meth isnt flowing.

    froop replied to a thread Opinions on log. Modified OFT in N54
    Does look that bad actually. The throttle closures are minimal and due to a mild overboost at the beginning of each gear. You'll need to reduce WGDC in the 4500-5000 RPM range to tune that out. Fuel trims look fine. One thing is the timing though. It seems to ramp up gradually in each gear but it's different in each gear. -2 to 5 in gear 2 and 4 and 1-9 in gear 3. There should be no issue with the Procede on map 0.

    What's up guys. I messed with Shiv's stage0 map for the OFT to try to tame it a little for my car. I adjusted the fuel scalars, and the load req tables. The car feels good on the road, but I'm not sure if it is as clean as it could be. This is on piss poor CA 91 octane. I'm running the procede in map0 as well, but I'm not sure if it still has some sort of bias. http://www.datazap.me/u/dmacc/stage02log?log=0&data=1-3 Mods: Walbro 450 inline DCI procede map 0 Charge pipe kittyless DPs VRSF 7" FMIC

    I only know the white CLS63 from Gorilla Racing. From my knowledge it still has the 1 Mile Record for a Mercedes Benz Car from Moscow Unlimited with 322 KM/H = 200 MPH. You can ask Vasily with his Renntech E63, reputable owner here. He raced this white CLS63 from Gorilla and he knows that it is fast. Nevertheless, Gorilla had problems to tune the 4WD car because of the new software. Renntech did a good job on the 4WD Car. But Gorillas 2WD CLS63 is not a "slow" car for sure.

    At what revs do you have the shift points in DCT? If the shift points are not close to rev limiter, a smaller turbo with peak power at lower revs could do the trick.

    Upshifting is the weak point (bog and/or low advance) everywhere track and street included. So the problem is not limited to drag strips.

    A few points.. -The heat shrink is PTFE, commonly used for it's chemical resistance and in applications where high purity is required. IMO, even if there were a film on any of the components (that doesn't appear to be the case), that would be sooooo minimal I can't see it accounting for any real discrepancy and certainly not long term. -When your tank is anything other than full...your float wires at the top hat on both sides are no longer submerged but are only getting potentially splashed with fuel. I can't tell you for sure if the float body is sealed...I'd need to investigate that. -In my bench testing, I was curious if people may have been wrapping their float wires around the pumps power wires. I literally took the float wires while running a stage 2 assembly at 100% duty cycle (13.5V and pulling 21amps) and wrapped them around the power wires, fuel fitting, and pump. There was no change in the resistance the float was reporting. -I thought I remembered Musc putting a stock pump back in and still having the issue with his fuel gauge? In addition didn't 335i say theirs was on a bone stock LPFP? There doesn't seem to be any strong correlation. Thus far I have been unable to reproduce this and I have probably had more pump assemblies and different configurations in and out of that tank than anybody as well as multiple float assemblies on both sides of the tank. However I usually run without a stock regulator (more on that later). In addition as far as EMI from the pump goes...not only was I running one 450 pump....I've run two in a stock bucket for Stage 3 testing with an otherwise stock tank and LPFP plumbing. Second with the inline setup the stock pump remains in the bucket and the 255 pump should be on the opposite side of the float assembly. Has anyone unplugged either float assembly (especially the drivers side) and filled their tank or driven around like that? I'd be curious to know its affect. I currently have parts of my car disassembled for development...but will put it back together Wednesday and perform this test. Another thought as I'm running through the entire tank assembly in my head...as I said on my car I usually run without the drivers side regulator but I put a stock one back in for Stage 3 testing. The stock float assembly on the driver's side connects to that regulator. I haven't noticed a difference with it in place or removed but I'm sure that wire is to ground the metal component of that regulator to dissipate any charge that may build up from fuel flowing through it. There is no such grounding that takes place on the driver's side of the E series. HOWEVER, if you look at the F-series pumps...the ground wire on the pump motor has 2 additional leads on it. One that connects to the regulator and one that connects to the filter as they are both contained in the same assembly but are separate unlike the E series. I need to check something and report back, but I'm wondering if the body of the 255 pump is grounded. I've read about a charge build up in fuel and if that pump body isn't grounded with all that fuel flowing through it...what the affect is when it reaches the regulator that is attached to the float assembly???? Just brainstorming at this point. Anybody have an o-scope to put on their float sensor. :naughty:

    Interestingly enough, on their own page - they have numbers that simply don't add up. Another weird thing is that they quote "BMW Factory Rated Horsepower/Torque" on their charts - almost as if they are claiming they didn't run a baseline? The only thing I can think of other than this is the following numbers are accurate differences from the baseline, but chose to use the stock numbers to fluff up the product? Max HP Gain 42 @ 6000 RPM Max Torque Gain 47 @ 3500 RPM Peak Horsepower 516 @ 6000 RPM Peak Torque 489 @ 3500 RPM Stock HP 425 Stock Torque 406 425HP + 42HP = 467HP (stock + their claimed gain) 516HP - 42HP = 474HP (their claimed peak HP - their claimed gain) 406 + 47 = 453 TQ (stock + their claimed gain) 489 - 47 = 442 TQ (their claimed peak TQ - their claimed gain) Doesn't make much sense to me.

    IMO, Bmw's are more track than drag oriented cars. Even the other platforms are getting high HP's easier and cheaper, I just love how my bmw feels & performs on a curved track still being a daily driver.
