    I'll give that a try. However, I only got that code once and that was about 8 days ago. Haven't had another since. A while back, I noticed that my bank 2 injectors are several index's older than my bank 1, though. changed my plugs to NGK's a few thousand miles ago as well.

    Thanks guys. Not happy with the dyno session at all, that tiny little fan and no decent ventilation. Will get to a proper dyno jet asap. 3 consistent runs would look nice, every run on this dynocom looked different on the graph. Currently on a PTF tune, 2nd revision. They said the logs look ok, I'm not 100% clued up on checking the logs yet. Will sort out the vanos issue, replace both with new genuine. Also I'm currently using 5w30 oil, been recommended to change to 5w40 as I've consumed over a litre in the last 1500 miles. The power these are making now is pretty scary, can't imagine cranking it up!

    Sounds like an injector. Move the coil from 4 to 3 to see if the misfire follows. But cold start misfires are normally injectors.

    Damn. Nice work. Take some rep, you deserve it. What are your plans going forward? Any differences with how you implemented your PI?

    Here is a log of the cold start http://datazap.me/u/bigdaddyaaron/log-1462305082?log=0&data=17-18-24-25 Recently, I developed a misfire on cold starts. The log shows bank 2 being sporadic in both stft and afr. On one cold start, the dme threw a code for a misfire on cly 4. Once the rpm's drop after 20 or so seconds, the car idles and drives normally. Any idea as to what may be happening?

    Considering it. Would rather be able to use the oem low level sensor on ours. The E30 one would work but shape looks like there's no ideal spot for it in engine bay. Neither are ideal

    That's a really good question. Did he even get head work done? Not too many ported N54 heads running around. Even though Dzenno saw huge gains after porting his. I haven't heard about the Renntech cams. That would be cool to read about.

    Out of curiosity, is there any reason why you don't just use the Radium Coolant expansion tank?

    So what's the guess as to why the bms full builds didn't touch cams? Full built motor from Motiv no cam work? Don't think you'll see cams offered anytime soon theres a thread about Renntech cams I can look for when not mobile

    I bet you could get them to do a custom regrind on a stock set of N54 cams. I bet the price wouldn't be too bad either. I'd hate to be the first person to try it though. hahahaha. I'm not sure how the VANOS and DME would react to it. I'm certainly no N54 expert though, so maybe it's possible. I have no clue. I'm still learning on this N54 stuff.

    You're right, There stage 3 kit doesn't even have cams but they have just about everything else on there heads which makes you wonder why they don't have cams as a part of that, they sell them for several other bmw engines

    I was trying to get the VAC webpage to open but I'm having issues with it. I see the VAC ported head option is like $3,999. I don't even think that includes cams. Just port and valvetrain. I could be wrong since I'm having issues with the webpage, but I don't think I am.

    The low demand for those kinds of parts on this platform reflects the high costs as well. I'm sure if someone made high lift cams, they would be very expensive. But if your car is at the point where cams are needed, I'm sure another 5k+ wouldn't be a problem

    With all the single turbo options available with this platform moving the power band to the right, it makes no sense for there to be no market for high revving cams. And maybe Syvec's standalone will help solve the vanos issue that comes with replacing cams

    Don't think so. I don't think anyone has offered them because of the cost of R&D vs the low demand. While many of us on here would jump on a set of higher lift cams, we are certainly in the minority when it comes to n54 owners. In contrast to say a Camaro owner or EVO owner. The majority of owners of those cars buy them to modify them.

    N54 forged camshaft Im replacing that and dealing with vanos Im building the rest isnt that why we haven't seen a vendor offer them? A little bit more involved then other V8 and I4 platforms

    But it isn't. It's an older technology. But manuals, and that means it has a clutch pedal, are physically smaller, lighter, more reliable, more durable, run cooler, and are more engaging to drive. And compared to an auto, they still have less drive train losses. I test drove a DCT 335 before buying my M/T, mostly to see what it was like. It sucked. Having driven 15-20 other DCT cars, they also all sucked. You like yours and defend it because you're just like the OP, a pussy that can't stand to actually focus on driving.

    Thanks very much for the update F3AD, I'm interested in running these turbos on pump Peak power and torque look great You have throttle closures and timing corrections all through the 4th gear run it also looks lean when coming on boost (AFR 15.6 at 10psi) Coolant temp up at 230f/110c, toasty It would be good if one of the more experienced tuners could chime in

    Since when do cams require a full engine build. Cams are one of the first mods you do on almost every other platform. From V8s to I4 turbo cars......
