    after reading a little bit on yellowbullet of EFR turbine failures, seems to me a likely culprit in the failed turbine pictures posted is overheating the turbine material from high EGTs outside the allowable design EGTs by EFR for the turbo. When overheated, the material losses significant material strength and then the failure is from overstress of the weakened material which matches how the failure looks like in the pictures and since Gamma-TI is a much more brittle material than Inconel, the overstress failure will be brittle in nature.

    That's it. It doesn't work at the pro level. Whatever, I'm not going to shed any tears for him but I think Cleveland mismanaged the entire situation. That franchise is a joke and will remain a joke.

    well as opposed to a design flaw. More a problem in quality control.

    We are about done with the S55's we had to build. So we are back to machining N55's now. Also, in the last couple days we were able to expedite our whole N55 build process. So starting Monday, we will be able to get them out the door quicker than ever before. Pretty soon we will be at our target lead time of 1-2 weeks. :dance:

    besides foreign object, it could be over spinning or over boosting the turbo among other things. Anti lag is also a unique thing that can overstress the turbine as it induces some fuel explosions in the exhaust manifold or maybe even in the turbine housing.

    Seems exceedingly doubtful to me. Let's isolate the traits and forget about the off the field stuff - obviously impossible in real life but useful for projections. He's H/W deficient. Carries modest bulk throughout his body. Will always have to throw from an awkward throwing position, simply doesn't have the height to see over most NFL OL. Injuries and dings will always be a concern. As a passer, he's raw with average at best physical tools. I'd put his arm in the 20-30 range of NFL "starters", it's not at all inspiring and there are certain throws that he won't be able to make with any consistency. In terms of accuracy and ball placement, it's fairly arbitrary. Collegiate tape is littered with jump balls to Mike Evans that didn't have any particular element of accuracy. Accuracy is largely innate, either the ball goes where you want, or it doesn't. That rarely changes to the extent it would need to for him to be an accurate passer. As a runner and improviser, he's clearly in his element. Has v good football instincts and seems to have a good feel for when to break the structure of the play. Problem is, at the pro level, I just don't see the physical ability to execute outside the confines of play structure. In terms of where he stands as a passer, it's v similar to Kaep. Difference is that Kaep is a completely different level of athlete, far bigger and more talented as a passer. Even then, the jury is very much so out on Kaepernick. I'm not optimistic, had an undraftable grade on Manziel coming out. And again, this would be assuming 0 off the field distractions. Again, not optimistic.

    They have extended batteries that often can be incorporated into a thicker case so problem solved.

    I don't even game much any longer so I'll just get a new laptop when time/money permits and enjoy that. For now my Alienware M18x still serves me well.

    The N55 is kind of an N54TU but I don't know the Valvetronic is all that great if you want to tune and then maybe rev it out too.

    Any chance Manziel becomes a productive quarterback? It's like Cleveland is where QB's go to do die. Young man gets a bunch of money, bunch of scrutiny, thrown under the bus by the team, etc. and then has go to rehab. I think the stress got to him and he handled it in a self-destructive manner because he could never live up to the hype.

    This makes sense but if you can't get the thicker seal even with a MT don't you then have to run the thinner?

    Maybe I'm missing and will need to read through this again but why is the newer part better? It often is the case that BMW replaces parts that may be faulty (often quietly) but I still don't understand why the seal changed or why the new seal is better if it is thinner and harder to fit from what I'm reading.

    Can you point out someone with a built motor running big boost? Also it's not a fueling issue. We raised scaler and the fuel is fine. We're getting other random events. Our next post will be results, nothing else. The motor is absolutely perfect, zero issues. No false knock, none of that. Just simple growing pains.

    Exactly. I can't ever top their numbers and reach so I might as well leverage what I can. I've lost and made friends through it and also had people essentially try to internet stalk me. That's why I rarely add anyone I don't personally know any longer. BimmerBoost, AudiBoost, BenzBoost, PorscheBoost, and GermanBoost all had pages. The Boost Addict network itself did not.

    I have never been one to really like facebook on a personal level, but for business and websites such as yours it is a great marketing tool. In my lifetime I have hung out with and made friends and enemies with too many people to deal with a facebook after seeing and hearing so much other gossip about other peoples facebooks, I just stay low key on the internet. But so many things now require a facebook to login so I made that account for good old Robert Marley. My instagram is enough of a window into my life but its done in a way where its a bit less do you know this one and that one in the creepyest of ways so I stick to that. I am surprised you did not have a facebook page already though tbh.
