    I wanted to put these turbos to a boost test, here is a 29-30 psi across the board pull, I popped a small boost reference hose to the gauge first pull, which tees to AEM map sensor so it shows lower boost after the shift, but its only because the map wasn't seeing full boost as the hose to the gauge popped off. If anyone had any questions on can stage 2+ hold a LOT of boost to redline, they can, and they can do it pretty easily. You take a BP hit as you see its at around 66psi, just slightly over 2:1. Timing for this boost level is pretty damn solid too, holds 10 degrees to redline, after the shift holds 8-9 all the way up. I will take this all day as well. I fixed the hose and you can see on the next run its showing 30 psi in 4th as well as it was getting the full boost signal. Notice how manageable EGT's are even at these boost, and timing levels, the car is pretty happy here. These can actually hold more boost if I want, but 28 tapering to 25 psi seems to be a good curve for BP, turbo longevity, etc, and where I will prob run them daily. Please keep in mind, the less boost you can run to get to your power goals, the longer your turbos will last. http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbot...3-256&mark=202

    Hey guys, I was able to attend a small half mile event at Minter Airfield today and put the new M3 through it's paces. I was expecting there to be around 30 various cars there but for whatever reason only 8-10 showed up. Sadly all faster than the M3. So I wasn't able to get many real races in. In fact many of my runs were solo. But I was able to get all the half mile racing data I needed. And had some fun in the process. For the most part I ran the car on map 7 with a 50% race gas 50% 91 mix and it performed flawlessly. I did a few runs from a 40mph roll and a few from a dig. The new boost limiting in 1st really helped the dig launches on the dusty runway. And the new logging functions on fuel trims, dual bank AFR, etc, came in handy as well. As far as results go MPH at the half mile ranged from a worst of 150.4 mph on a botched dig start to a best of 154.5 mph from a roll. Which would put it ahead of most RB FBO N54 335s, and only 1-2mph slower than our (late) tuned/race gas/exhaust M5. Not bad for a tune only car. The closest races I had were against a sharp looking new McLaren. I think it's a 12C model but I don't know the cars well so someone correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway the M3 held up well from a dig and a roll but the McLaren had a couple mph on it both runs. It was fun watching it's spoiler pop up as it was braking from 155mph. He mentioned he was looking in to some piggyback tune for it that I think is 6k. lol. Some vids of those runs:

    As most know, Fuel-It! has been working with Vargas Turbo Technologies and MOTIV Motorsports to develop a new product to meet your needs. Now that their products are about to start shipping we would like to officially announce the release of "THE HULK". (shown with optional return) This is no ordinary fueling solution for any ordinary car! Just like the monster lurking under your hood, this beast is just waiting for a chance to shed it's civil demeanor and show you what its capable of. With "THE HULK" installed and restrained, you can resume your normal daily activities. While commuting this dual stage pump's primary is controlled by the DME and the secondary lies dormant. However, the moment you mash the throttle, it's true colors show themselves and the secondary comes to life releasing "THE HULK" within and leaving everyone green with envy. With up to four times the flows of the stock low pressure fuel pump, this assembly can handle whatever you can throw at it.....and then some! A few specs and particulars... Primary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: PWM via the DME E85 certified: Yes Flow: 1.0GPM @ 13.5V Secondary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: User defined E85 certified: Yes Flow: ​2.1GPM @ 13.5V Installation... Stage 3 is installed just like the stock LPFP and the electrical and plumbing connection points are all stock. The primary runs off the stock electrical system and there are no modifications made. The secondary requires the installation of an additional wiring harness. We will be providing the wiring, relay, and fuse assemblies for this installation. It will be up to the user as to how they trigger the secondary. Those running JB4 will be able to utilize the "nitrous trigger". Those running port injection may choose to use their secondary PI controller to trigger the secondary. For those running dual HPFPs or some other configuration, you may choose the optional Hobb's switch to control the secondary via boost. Options... FPR: To assist those customers that will be running an external Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR), we will offer an optional return line connection point and a stock FPR block off kit. The location of the return has been optimized to flow back in to the bucket to be recycled under high demand and is a simple quick release fitting. Hobb's switch: As mentioned we will also have the option to purchase a normally open Hobb's boost controlled switch to control the secondary. You can view these options on our website and we are taking pre-orders that will begin shipping Nov. 3rd. Supply at this time for both domestic and international customers is limited due to the availability of core assemblies. Consequently those orders will ship in the order in which they were received. We appreciate your patience while we build up those inventories and work to meet demand. http://www.fuel-it.biz/e-series-stage-3-lpfp-upgrade-options/

    wtfmarine started a thread Dreaded 30BB code in N54
    I recently installed a FFTEC 600 kit and was out trying to see if I had fixed all boost leaks and to finally get an accurate log. I hit the gas WOT and a loud noise that came from the engine. I immediately looked in rearview mirror expecting to see white smoke billowing out of the exhaust, but nothing. The engine sounded like it was trying to rip itself apart. The CEL popped on, but the 1/2 power light did not. I immediately pulled over before my car died on the highway and started to check codes. 30BB and misfire 4,5,6. 30BB is the DME internal failure code for injectors covering 4,5,6. Cleared the codes and 30BB came back. I was 30 minutes from my house so I called a tow truck as I was not going to attempt to limp my car home. While waiting for tow truck I started to research the 30BB code. Found a diy on another forum and felt a little relief. There are 6 mosfet transistors on the DME (MSD80) that are the weak point of the DME. Supposedly its not tuning related but they seem to go out once you add any kind of piggyback/flash with a significant increase in power. I ordered replacement mosfet and when I received them they were the wrong ones. I ordered another set of 12 (insurance) from digi-key FNB14N30 and they were a perfect match. Next issue was getting the old ones off and new ones put on. I have done very very basic soldering, but never on anything that cost $1200 to replace so I attempted to find a "pro". I took the board to a computer/radio repair shop and they assured me that they could swap the parts out no problem. Great. 6 hours later I call to check on the progress and they state that the mosfets are impossible to get off and they stopped before they did any damage. I was not going to give up with out getting the parts replaced. I found a guy on a local racing forum that said he could do it. I take it to him and he walks me through about how he is going to replace everything. I leave it with him feeling a little more confident about it. By the time I make it back to my house (1 hour) he is calling me and I am expecting the worse. He tells me all mosfets have been replaced. Went back picked it up and brought it home installed it. I replaced all my plugs, coils, and battery (it was time). Reset the battery adaptation with bavtech tool. Started the car and it ran like normal actually probably a little smoother thanks to new plugs and coils. :fap:Cliff Note: 30BB code can be fixed with correct mosfets and competent person with a solder gun. Coils and plugs usually have to be replaced, but injectors were not harmed. I will add pictures later tonight.
