    Irishace started a thread I am Back! in N54
    Happy to report that I have picked up a 2008 335xi in titanium silver metalic as a daily driver. I am not interested in driving my M4 in the winter so the only logical conclusion was to find a nice all wheel drive car. I could not for the life of me get into a garbage audi so my search for an N54 was on. I stumbled across a unicorn N54 while surfing Auto Trader. She only has 54,000 km on the clock and was driven by an elderly couple who recently traded it in for a Subaru. The interior and exterior condition is flawless, the engine bay is spotless and motor is virgin to any modifications. There is absolutely no evidence of even an intake being installed on this car. Car has had the HPFP recall and not a hint of wastegate rattle or any of the usual non-sense. Needless to say, I bought it on the spot and could not be happier. Only beef I have with the car is that it does not have the M-Sport package, ohh well, a minor nuisance. So in true Irish fashion, I have the following mods on order from my good buddy Mike@n54tuning.com: - CPE xi ********* - BMS DCI - AMS FMIC - DCAN cable for MHD flash I will drive it like this during the winter and will start the debate of going big single or an upgraded twin option when spring rolls around. Good to be back in this community, I really missed it

    AndersS started a thread M-Control arms rear. in N54
    Hi I need some advice about bushings and M performance upgrades. The rear end of my car feels a little TO alive doing hard pulls/acc. Rear end is not as stable as i would like it to be, and I dont feel that the car is 100% in control. At the moment the rear bushings is still stock, but I have allready bought the Yellow Powerflex subframe bushings and the Mfactory Solid diff. Bushings. But I am not sure if that is enough to make the car more stabel during accelerations. I´ve been looking to upgrade my stock Upper Control arms rear to M-performance from ECS tuning. (I Already got the front kit mounted. ) https://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E90-335i-N54_3.0L/Suspension/M_Upgrade/ES2622633/ But is this a ”complete” upgrade.? What about the Wishbones arm next to the controlarms. (link) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182224203710?clk_rvr_id=1082423874663&rmvSB=true Does it make sense to upgrade the control arms, and not the wishbones? And does the wishbones fit directly to the E91/E90 or must other changes be done? Not planning to take the car to trackways, and since it is my daily use I prefer not to make the car 100% a racecar but still keep some comfort if possible. :cool: Thanks Car E91 335i 2010 auto. Quife LSD KW V1 M3 front and rear Swaybar. M3 front controlarms and wishbones. Pure Stage 2 – Lpfp3 – EOS PI – 2” Inlets. And more.

    The BMW N20 2.0 liter turbo four-cylinder gets a bad rap despite being a potent powerplant at least in stock form and highly underrated in its output. However, the BMW enthusiast community has witnessed many failures from this engine when tuned. Why is that? In theory, shouldn't it be 2/3's as capable as an N55 motor? Well, Pure Turbos has a car with their Stage 2 N20 turbocharger upgrade showing some serious power. This is a Brazilian car and a Brazilian dyno so 380 wheel horsepower will not translate exactly to Dynojet power that US enthusiasts are accustomed to. What one should take away is not just the peak figures but that the N20 is holding together with a substantial turbo upgrade: -N20 JB4 -N20 PURE Stg2 -E25 fuel (Pump gas with some E85 mixed) 387 Cv power = ~382whp 61 Kgm torque = ~440wtq @Pure Turbos is trying to get a baseline from this Dynotech dynamometer so we can better understand these numbers in context. What @Pure Turbos tells BimmerBoost is that failures on the N20 tend to come from oil pressure issues. It's clearly not a track motor but then again neither is the N54 or N55. Maybe with upgrades to the oil system the N20 can become an interesting tuning option. Then again, with the introduction of the B48 motor the N20 ship might have already sailed.

    I've never had an issue with the BMS bypass valve. I swap it out for the stock one during the winter (Colorado gets pretty effin cold) and haven't had any issues there either. Now if the AD valve actually has a temp it's set to open at, I'd consider it for winter use.

    Jake at what temp does the AD thermo open? Don't see anything on there site with details. Thought it was just a bypass like the bms version.

    These new tables kick ass. Temp was 93* in stop and go traffic. Non-oil cooled car. Coolant temps are usually over 200* and oil temps are usually right at 250*. Here is what I changed: Ambient Temp Threshold for High Mode changed from 32 to 23. Ambient Temp Threshold for High+KFT Mode changed from 37 to 28. Coolant Setpoint (Normal Mode) changed from 104 to 101. Coolant Setpoint (High Mode) changed last cell from 95 to 93.

    You'll absolutely see it in logs showing fuel pressure. It's a bit of a step increase.
