    mj6234 started a thread 29D1 - Cyl 5 Misfire in N54
    K, started getting this. Here is what I have done so far. New index 12 injectors 1500mi ago (coded as well). Car ran fine after install. until recently. New coils (all cylinders) New plugs Walnut blast 1500mi ago. Still getting this code. If I floor it in 3rd gear from 2000, the car misfires, struggles and eventually throws 29D1. Attached is a log. I see bank 2 is very rich, which I guess could be because of the misfire. I have no idea what it could possibly be. Bank 2 primary O2 sensor dying? Car idles fine. Cruise is fine. WOT seems better (i.e. smooth) after 3000 rpm. I haven't tried resetting adaptions and didnt reset them after I changed the injectors.

    Last month BenzBoost reported that Pure Turbos was working on a turbocharger upgrade for the new 4.0 liter M177 and M178 motors under the hood of the W205 C63 and C190 AMG GT respectively. Well, now we have the results for the M177. How does 634 horsepower and 608 lb-ft of torque at the wheels sound? On pump fuel no less? No methanol, no E85, just what you can easily run every day. The other modifications are downpipes and an aftermarket exhaust. That's it. Considering the heft of the C63 the added torque will be appreciated. Plus, F80 M3's are showing strongly so an M177 turbo upgrade is a good idea for W205 C63 owners who want to easily dispatch tuned competition. As for the M178 under the hood of the AMG GT, results for that will have to wait for now until someone does the upgrade.

    BoostAddict member @The Ghost took his C6 Z06 to TX2K17 and had a bit of fun. His Z06 has upgraded heads, an aftermarket cam, intake, and is tuned on E85 ethanol. The car is in the ~600 whp range and definitely is making efficient use of its power. The first video has the Z06 run a single turbo N54 said to have a GT35R turbocharger. The Z06 dispatches it rather easily. Up next is another Z06 with a cam and bolt ons plus a 150 shot. Surprisingly, this Z06 has trouble until the bottle pressure is up at which point there is a good run between the two. This nitrous setup needs to be dialed in a bit better. A bolt on ZL1 LSA tries its luck next. The driver is either asleep or that car is a waste of gas. The second video below has more runs. First up is a second generation CTS-V LSA with bolt ons on E85. Not much of a race. Next up is a Honda S2000 with a Precision 6766 turbocharger. This is a light package that should be strong on the highway. It isn't. Another 335i joins in and possibly is single turbo. If so, it's time for a bigger turbo or a better setup. A GT350 Mustang tries its luck next. Suffice it say, time for boost. The final run is a ZL1 LSA with bolt ons and it holds off the Z06 when given the hit. A follow up run has the Z06 pull pretty easily. Overall, this is a very stout C6 Z06 for the mods stated.

    Spy photos are floating around of the next generation 911 which is expected to use the 992 internal codename following the current 991 generation models. As this is a 911 do not expect a huge departure in styling but a continued minor evolution. It makes it somewhat difficult for Porsche as they are locked into certain styling elements but what they appear to be doing is taking design elements from the new Panamera. Most noticeably, in the rear. The renderings do a good job from what spy photographers have captured. So, what will change under the hood? The 992 may bring hybrid powerplants with it but the 3.0 liter turbocharged engine should likely continue. Expect the current model to carry on through 2018.

    mj6234 replied to a thread 29D1 - Cyl 5 Misfire in N54
    I took a quick glance around to make sure all the charge tract was still tight, and it was. My two guesses are: either the brand new cylinder 5 injector failed already (seems unlikely) or the pre-cat O2 sensor on bank 2 died. That seems like the better choice, but don't have misfires on any other cylinder in that bank. Also, I see the sensor readings adjusting at idle fine. But clearly in the log they are way richer than bank 1, 7+ points in some cases. Also most bad O2 sensors seem to show a lean condition and not a rich like I am seeing. 91K miles on the car now and is a 2008.

    Yeah, my ST 335i was stolen last summer. My Z06 is my only fun car (525i doesn't quite get it!).

    It makes sense to back up any dyno with a 1/4 mile run, 60-130, 60-160, 1/2 mile, etc. There will be variance there to depending on conditions, temps, elevation, etc. The more data, the more useful. As stated in the article the dyno is just one (important) part of the whole picture.

    I wouldn't laugh, I gave him props. The dude fabricated and built his manifold and whole ST kit himself and is running on a GT35R equivalent (smallish turbo). He was real cool.

    The slave cylinder can be hard to bleed, here is how its done at the dealers. I recommend using the pressure bleeder with someone in the vehicle working the pedal, while you bleed the slave cylinder.

    Picked up the hydraulic lines from Mesa Hose. Hard lines were cut and had fitting welded on and they made 3 flexible lines to connect my hard lines to the ABS pump which had -AN bubble flare fittings. The hardlines were exposed from the welding process so I taped them off and hit them with some Plasti Dip for protection. They fit Not the prettiest of of setups but thankfully this is now tucked away and out of the engine bay. With the ABS/DSC now connected I could reinstall the brakes (again). When you realize your mountain bike has better brakes than your car. Wheel liner installed and DSC pump forever out of sight. Time to bleed the brakes and clutch. Brakes were initially bled in the traditional manner with a Motiv pressure bleeder. I tried to run the "Brake System" bleeding procedure in INPA where the ABS pump systematically activates to expel small air bubbles but of course since I have a RWD DSC pump in a US spec E61 where DSC modules were never fitted I ran into an issue getting the RWD module coded to my car. @levani was a huge help in getting my car to recognize the pump and even tracked down some INPA software files so I could have diagnostic capabilities (even if the files were in German). I Google translated my way and found the procedure but unfortunately it didn't work which is ok since I can always get this done later with other means. Bleeding the clutch has given me all kinds of problems. Pressure bleeding against gravity didn't work. I also tried hand bleeding the slave cylinder with the clutch both retracted and extended. The only thing I haven't done is reverse bleed. Not sure why these BMW clutches have to be so difficult, while researching it online it appears to be a common theme. As it is now, my clutch pedal is light/dead for the first 40% of travel, at about 50-60% travel I can hear the clutch being activated and the annoying upgrade clutch noise cease however I need to give the clutch >95% travel to get it to activate properly and once the gear is selected engagement starts REALLY early, well when about 5% of travel is used releasing the clutch pedal. I will be playing around with it more today. Open DP cold starts were getting old for the neighbors so it was time to put the exhaust back in. I took the opportunity to lightly sand down the piping and remove any remaining charred oil marks and cooling droplets from when the engine blew. Can you tell which section I sanded? Ceramic coated ***, dirty merge collector, clean section 2 and 3. Sways were reinstalled with some other necessary braces since my wagon is getting ready to support it's own weight. It looks like RD Sport went under so I had no way of getting the fancy proprietary teflon based bushing lubricant, so I referenced by friend the internet and it told me to use liberal amounts of Mobile 1 synthetic grease, so I did. If it squeaks then I will find another solution. Off the jackstands! Ta Da! After a quick waterless wash.
