    Because his Rom has more default values than yours. The x axis is coolant temp. EU cars seems to no longer perform cats heating. When the cars is a already a bit warm.

    No that's it. 2 columns for EU ROMs and more (7?) for US ROMs.

    Figure I'd expand on this. If you have enough filter area the gains seen on the dynos are likely because the dp caused by running the stock turbos so hard on stock inlets was causing large dp across the filter. So increasing the area of the filter will net you some small gains. It would be more efficient from a compressor standpoint to improve pressure at the inducer by going to larger inlets then going to an aftermarket air box. I don't really care one way or the other. But then again I'm not one for creating intake threads every time I switch platforms or new products drop.

    So to change the cold start duration we simply change the 2 columns that are 65 (seconds) stock under "Threshold of time after start for catalyst heating" to whatever value we require or is there more to it?

    All I know is that any noticeable performance gains people might see from any form of upgraded intake almost never matches the amount of money you would have to spend on them. $800 for an aFe intake that you'll see maybe +10-13 hp? I'd rather buy VTT inlets at that point and pocket my savings.

    Yeah questionable tuning. Unless your running more than 21psi of boost the 154sq inches of area on a K&N or AFE drop in should be adequate. (21/14.7)+1*183*7200/20839= 154

    prob because it works IRL :) hot air is a problem while the car isnt moving, once moving dual cones rules (especially with new inlets), thousands of logs to support this...

    Any reason you've changed all of the values in the table to 5 (seconds) rather than just the 2 columns that were 65 before?

    I personally wouldn't put much trust in those numbers. Honestly anyone on stock turbos doesn't need much more flow then a clean drop in. If you want to reduce compressor inlet dp to minimum you can run cones but you will offset the efficiency gain with slightly warmer air. For hybrids If you want more air run upgraded inlets and any inlet filter combination with more than 215sq. inches of area at sea level and 285 at 10K feet. Stock is 154 FYI Here is the formula I've found somewhere before. Sq. Inches of filter required = (Max Boost PSI/Atmos. PSI @ Alt.) + 1 * c.i.d * Max RPM / 20839. So lets say (35/14.7)+1*183*7200/20839= 214 Any stock frame option should be fine with cone filters but according to our calculations you want 2 cone filters 6" in diameter and 6" long or a flat filter 14x16. Packaging constraints limit this a bit. People should also remember having area after the filter allows lower airspeed across the filter element which results in less dp. Ideally you want velocity in the intake tubes and low velocity across the filter. This is hard to do in modern engine bays though. But this was why the Chevy filters looked the way they did for years. Turbo motors require a lot more area then those NA V8s though so it makes things harder.

    The best results I've seen were from BuraQ "Ok everyone here are the results and will post PDF and videos later. This weather kicked my ass. Stock with K&N Drop in Filter originally yielded 371 whp and 412 wtq ; starting temps 86 F/ 82 H aFe Stage 2 SI (Custom Sealed) yielded 380 whp and 424 wtq ; starting temps 87 F/ 88 H aFe Stage2 SI Elite (Custom Sealed) yielded 384 whp and 429 wtq; starting temps 93 F/ 93 H The aFe Stage 2 SI Elite produced 13 whp and 17 wtq in 93F over the Stock with K&N Drop in Filter The AFR sensor fell out on the final run so your not going to see it on the dyno, please excuse, the damn place was hot man lol On stock DPs "

    The fact that the air is being sucked in so fast and the fact that radiation is the slowest form of heat transfer makes this a mute point. DCI work because it improves the hydrodynamic efficiency of the engine intake path. This kit with VTT inlet would be a great alt to TFT inlet kit. My only concern would be for those trying to run PI. I heard that there might be fitment issues with the PI kit and the stock air box.

    Newest revision 3" Catless VRSF downpipes (v2). We made a little extra clearance in two spots where it was a little tight to the subframe (you can see in the photo). No issues. Going back to stock. 220 shipped in the USA

    That thread is hilarious. Ever notice how all the naysayers always "feel" a loss in power due to their perceived increase in IATs? They never ever actually have dyno proof of a loss in power and when a dyno is provided showing a gain in power with a DCI setup, they claim it's a lie or don't believe it. Seriously, how can people be so skilled at ignoring fact and making up their own reality is astonishing.

    Ok, so one of the sellers of the Eaton TVS S/C from the 5.0L Jaguar XF replied back with some dimensions. I asked him for measurements of the supercharger casing. He said it measures 24" length x 8" heights x 10" width. Can anyone do me a favor and measure the casing size of the Eaton M112? Trying to figure if this S/C might work in the space constraints of the Jaguar XJR intercoolers and intake, etc. I know the Eaton M112 is a proven setup at this point thanks to Toolman's awesome work, but if the Eaton TVS S/C from the 5.0L Jag XF will fit, i'd prefer to use it...for the front throttle body location, and the "better" TVS rotor design (that people claim is more twin screw-like and has better thermal efficiency than the old-school Eatons...

    Very interested in seeing how this pans out. Would LOVE to someday undertake a similar swap into my E36. And super interested in seeing it done with the DCT. That car will be a monster. :) OP...For the oil pan you're going dry sump? How about for the steering column connections...what's your plan on getting the steering shaft around the maze of the exhaust manifold? Those (aside from the electrical side) are the 2 major hurdles in my mind with the S85 swaps...the oil pan/subframe clearance and the steering shaft/driver's exhaust manifold clearance. Subscribed...

    I got my rbs in about 4 weeks, rob was clear with me and called to confirm my order and gave me a time frame . I waited I waited and got the turbos . Couldn't be any happier with the quality of the product and customer service , but I gave VTT love for there inlets I have also.

    Finally got my MFactory flywheel and 335is clutch installed and broken in. Did Redline MT fluid as well as a new rear main seal. Shifts are amazing.. even taking off from a light is easier. Constantly chirping the tires now going into 2nd gear because everything grabs as it should and my random missfires are gone. Can't complain at all!
