    Since the US is a bit of a 3rd world country when it comes to mobile tech I'll be understanding here. But I assume if you check user agent from EMEA users you see that mobile is the new default browsing platform ;)

    Now we're talking! The main problem BimmerBoost has with the i8 is that BMW went overboard in the efficiency department for a two-seat sports car (technically 2+2 but try to sit in the back) that costs over $130k. The i8 performs well and makes efficient use of its 357 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. That is decent power but it just not cut it in the golden age of horsepower. Especially considering the ~3400 pound carbon tub i8 chassis is simply begging for more. Who is buying cars approaching $150k with options to save a few MPG anyway? The i8 potentially is capable of so much more. Its 1.5 liter three-cylinder turbo engine only produces 231 horsepower. Good for a 1.5 liter motor of course but imagine if BMW used their S55B30 inline-6 engine from the M3/M4 instead? Automobile reports that may be a possibility. The other possibility is a 320 horsepower 2.0 liter four-cylinder and considering that BMW does not have one of these sitting around the M division would have to develop one likely starting with the N20 engine as a base. Ok, fine, even a 320 horsepower 2.0 liter four-cylinder massaged by M is better than this 1.5 liter three-cylinder nonsense. The best bet and what BMW should do is the S55B30 3.0 liter inline-6 giving the car an underrated 554 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. That is of course assuming no changes to the electric drivetrain. Really BMW should use a twin turbo S85 V10 for the gasoline motor but now we're dreaming and we'll be content with an i8 that finally has the performance to back up the looks. The four-cylinder although better than the three-cylinder just is not good enough for a proper M1 successor and a car to honor a hundred years of BMW. This is a one time one shot thing. Go big or go home. It's now or never. Ulrich Kranz who is the BMW i Senior Vice president is apparently pushing for this hotter i8 which will be called an i8S instead of an i8M. Keep in mind last year BMW stated i and M need to remain separate which is a steaming hot pile of you know what. Look, this M version of the i8 or higher performance i8 or whatever you want to call it has been reported off and on for years now. Automobile Magazine says it is coming but we have heard this before only for reports weeks later to state the opposite. Enough already. Someone at BMW confirm this thing and let BMW M go to town on the i8. In April of this year BimmerBoost made the case for a high performance i8. The conclusion is the same as before: It is time to build the Ultimate Driving Machine. It is now or never. Either you produce an enthusiast car or just admit you no longer build 'only one thing.' Build the i8 M or M1 as you have put your hardcore and loyal fans through enough and yet we are still here. If you do not, we won't be for much longer. Source

    You're probably onto something with the sensors.

    Hey guys, Quick question/issue/quirk... I'm helping a friend tweak his Stg2+FMIC Agressive ST V4.02 map. He recently got new turbos (OEM) and ever since has been having some low end overboost issues. Nothing crazy and it clears up over 80ish load. Now by default in that map his wastegates default to approx ~30% DC as he first turns on the car, a few seconds after he pulls away the default off throttle position goes to 0.1% DC.... But when I make any change to the Pre-Control A table and flash, Even one .5 change the Default wastegate position stays at 30% DC. If you tap the pedal it will drop to 0.1% and go right back. Really weird behavior, I went back and forth a few times, surely I could modify any other table including WGDC Main and it would behave correctly. (30% then to 0% once you were moving) Whats up with this??? Edit: More info, FBO(FM,CP,DV,DP,DCI), Accessport V3, AccessTuner Race

    Nope. Stock except for BMS DCI's. 114K miles right now. Just a bit frustrating. I plan on taking the O2 sensors out this weekend and seeing if they are dirty. Just a S#$t job.

    In the post you quote, I'm not talking about targets, I just wanted to say that running 12.8 AFR with E65 or above is much safer than with 93 pump gas, even with meth.

    If I'm waiting for the next great thing I'll be waiting forever. Yep, 8 cores. I don't even care about gaming all the programs I use will fly with this computer. Right now my laptop with 16 gigs of ram isn't enough considering I have 96 browser windows open at the moment. Plus invoicing software. Plus my e-mail client. Plus a photo editor. Plus a video editor. Plus spotify. Plus an FTP client. Plus this, plus that, you get the point.

    Yeah I know. I don't think this has two cpu's just 8 cores right? What I was getting at is some of the hype isn't worth it if you don't need the hardware. Some of the programs I was using wern't optimized well and I needed the hp. If it was me I would hold out until the top 8xx cards launch in the Q1 of 2015.
