    Hey guys, Pure Turbo dropped off their M4 for a little JB4 dyno tuning. The car has a JB4, full exhaust, factory intake system, racing fuel, meth kit running dual CM7 nozzles (overkill with the race gas... but better safe than sorry first time out), and of course the hybrid turbos. It's an MT. There were a few little bugs to work through but the end result exceeded my expectations. I'm pretty impressed with these turbos. Spool is delayed maybe 300-500rpm, similar to RB N54s vs. stock N54s. But damn does it hold more power to redline. There is probably another 30-40whp in them but since it's not our car I didn't want to push it "too" hard. :lol

    This was way overdue. I've had my kit for quite some time now and finally got around to strapping it down on a dyno. Sorry this took so long @fastgti69 Terry was kind enough to take some time to meet me at SpecialtyZ and try to work his magic. Unfortunately the car wasn't running at its full potential. Misfires and what looked like octane issues kept us from cranking up the boost. I might have some sort of meth distribution problem due to the way my nozzles are set but that is to be determined. Overall I am very very happy with this kit and the results so far. I'll be hitting the dyno again very soon after I figure out the misfire issues. Not bad for my first trip to the dyno on this kit. 6767 Comp turbo 100%meth E35 fuel mixture Auto trans. Payam(fastgti69) thanks again for a great kit! You are a standup guy and it's always a pleasure doing buisness with you. I highly recommend your kit to anyone looking for a single turbo kit. Also a huge thanks to @Terry@BMS for all your time and support over the years. The BMS team has been awesome and I am sure many more can agree with me on this.

    Developments in the BMW F-Series flash tuning scene are proceeding faster than expected. Earlier this month BimmerBoost brought you the story that BMW F-Series Infineon tri-core ECU's had been cracked and the various cracks have spread like wildfire to tuners throughout the globe. Jailbreak Tuning posted flash tune results on 91 octane for the F10 M5 S63TU V8 and the numbers are very encouraging even at this early stage. Peak power went up from the 539 wheel horsepower baseline (with aftermarket downpipes) to 617 wheel horsepower for a gain of 78 horsepower at the wheels. The tune deletes the CEL (check engine light) caused by the downpipes. The torque figure rises from 507 lb-ft at the wheels to 567 lb-ft at the wheels. Torque gains are seen throughout the entire curve once the turbos spool. F10 M5 tuning and S63TU V8 tuning is ready to take the next step forward. 2015 is going to be very interesting for BMW aftermarket performance.

    So just dropped my new to me built apex motor a foot onto concrete when the tub it was in cracked in half due to cold/overweight. No visible signs of damage. Motor is dry sump. Anyone think I should change the bearings? It's 10K to build from scratch with all the machining so really don't want to blow it up after install.

    Another day another BMW executive leaves. Unfortunately, the executives that have been leaving are the ones who were the most vocal about producing enthusiast friendly products. You know, actually making cars that are supposed to be the Ultimate Driving Machine. Albert Biermann is the latest BMW casualty and he is a big one considering he was the vice president of the M division. He is the guy who said he wanted the M division to produce an M7 to rival the Mercedes S63/S65 AMG. He is also the guy who publicly admitted the new turbo BMW motors simply do not match the response of the previous naturally aspirated motors. He also kept the idea of an E89 Z4M alive stating it hurt not having one in the lineup. Perhaps the biggest and most important development was that he was the one pushing hard for an M version of the i8 despite the other execs saying that 'M' and 'i' must be kept separate. BMW is clearly having an internal power struggle and identity crisis. You have the head of BMW Norbert Reithofer saying there should be no i8M or M8 and the head of BMW M saying they should have one. All we know is the bean counters keep winning and the enthusiasts keep leaving BMW. So after three decades at BMW Biermann is gone for Hyundai of all places. If Hyundai is more inclined to produce performance cars than BMW something is very, very wrong. Hyundai Motor Group appoints Albert Biermann as Head of Vehicle Test & High Performance Development • Biermann’s last role was as Vice President Engineering at BMW M Automobiles, responsible for dynamics of acclaimed road and race cars • Takes on responsibility for new high performance vehicles and technologies • Appointment is part of a drive to develop Hyundai and Kia vehicles that lead their segments for rewarding driving dynamics December 22, 2014 - Hyundai Motor Group has appointed Albert Biermann as its new Head of Vehicle Test & High Performance Development. Based at the company’s R&D Center in Namyang, Korea, Mr. Biermann will lead the development of new high performance Hyundai and Kia models, as well as oversee engineering projects relating to ride and handling, safety, reliability, and the mitigation of NVH (noise, vibration and harshness). His appointment will accelerate the roll-out of new high-performance vehicles and technologies, as well as help to improve the dynamic capabilities of cars across the range. The company intends to become a technical leader in ride and handling, producing vehicles that lead their respective segments for driver engagement. Hyundai Motor’s involvement in the World Rally Championship (WRC) should also benefit, thanks to increased sharing of performance technologies and insights between engineering programmes for the road and rally stage. Mr. Biermann, 57 years old, joins Hyundai Motor Group from 1 April 2015 and brings over 30 years of experience in the development of high-performance vehicles, most recently in his current role as Vice President Engineering BMW M Automobiles and BMW Individual at BMW M GmbH, Germany, a position he has held since 2008. He first joined BMW in 1983 and has played a key part in honing the performance and dynamics of some of the marque’s most acclaimed road and race cars. Biermann said, “I couldn’t be more excited to join Hyundai Motor Group. It is a company I have watched closely as it has taken on its key competitors and quickly established a strong customer base in Europe. 2015 is a key year for the brand with the launch of many all-new models and the start of its second season in WRC, so I am really looking forward to the challenge.” Woong Chul Yang, Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor Company and Head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Center, added, “This is a senior engineering appointment and an important part of our effort to further optimize the dynamics of our vehicles, providing even greater rewards for keen drivers. Mr. Biermann has unrivalled credentials in this field and his expertise and experience will help us bring forward the development of new Hyundai and Kia cars that are great to drive, as well as speed the transfer of innovative technologies and insights between our road-car and motorsport engineering teams.” Earlier in 2014 Hyundai Motor opened its brand new European Test Centre at the Nürburgring in Germany, allowing the company to test more effectively and accurately the reliability and drivability of new vehicles.

    When i installed the jb4, i did a 25% e85 mix and the car ran great. After installing a new intake and charge pipe i tried 50%. Then car ran like crap. Kicked me to map 4, engine malfunction warning. Car drives great in normal driving, but horrible under WOT. So i figured too much e85. Drove car around and got fuel level down to almost a half tank and filled up with 93. Which shouldve put me back around 25% e85. Previously i was hitting 17psi. Now i can only get 12-14 out of it. Ive reset the map and moved the FOL down. Still wont make 17psi and acts funny under WOT. I can do the back end flash tomorrow but if it sounds like something else im all ears. What would make the car drop my boost level on map 5? Also a/f looks leaner than it was. Fuel trims maxing out so pulling boost?

    I purchased myself a new Mfactory LSD for my bolted 335 MT. I have access to a full lift and any tool I could need so I'm thinking of doing the install myself. It seems super straight forward... I've done some big jobs like turbo swaps on my old 1.8t and clutches here and there but never any major differential mods. I found a few DIYs on other forums but we all know the technical folks lurk the bimmerboost waters and I wanted to get some input from anyone with experience installing a torsen LSD in our cars.

    I went for a drive to get a few datalogs in and on my third log When shifting from 3rd to 4th dsc completely off and a/c off i noticed a lack of power so i let off thinking something was wrong. drove home ok with good power. I checked the datalog and found that after the shift with the accelerator fully depressed the throttle took 6/10's of a second to reach 76.7%. A few weeks ago I installed a cobb v3, a charge pipe with stock dv's and 7" intercooler on my 08 135 manual trans with 83,xxx miles. I am running 1+ sport with e21 fuel mixture using acn91. (I get numerous timing pulls with just straight acn91) I have done about 25 logs and this is the first time this has happened. I haven't tried to reproduce it yet. Valves and TB have been cleaned. Turbos, vac. hoses and spark plugs are new. Fuel injectors and coils are original. Does any one have any ideas as to why the dme decided to open the TB so slowly?? I am new to this forum and to modifying cars but I have many years of experience wrenching on bmw's so hopefully i will be able to contribute to the forum in the future. I will try to reproduce it with mean abs and req. abs added. Any input is appreciated. Can't post link to the datazap due to no rep points. How do I get rep points?

    How do you increase sales and profits if you are BMW? Take a Mini, change the styling a bit, and give it some BMW badges. That is what you have here in the upcoming X1. BMW really did not need to do much of anything as Mini products are already using the BMW B48 four-cylinder motor which the X1 will also use. This really is essentially a Mini with a BMW badge. Expect front wheel drive versions and an all wheel drive option as well. Also expect it to be similar to the 2-Series Active Tourer (itself a reskinned Mini) offering similar powertrain options but with different styling. BMW has the X2 spot in the lineup open and with an X4 and X6 in production the speculation can begin on whether BMW intends to produce a 'coupe' variant of the X1. Considering how hard BMW is pushing X variants it will likely come. Exciting times at BMW for driving enthusiasts these days.

    Hi Guys, I've been a long-time lurker around here, but I've got a problem and I need some help! I bought a BT cable to re-flash my DME to a suitable Pump gas flash, however it says I've got an 0IF80S bin when I read the DME. I've looked at the both the IJE0S and I8A0S files and XDF's provided by Terry in tuner pro and the data doesnt match up to my existing bin. I'm not sure what to do, as the only option I can see is manually creating a map using bits and pieces for the OFT but that's not going to work with the JB4 correctly. Has anyone encountered this before and is there a work around? Some details of my car; May 2008 N54 335i, UK spec car. Thanks James

    ajehoti started a thread Questions about 335is in N54
    I have a good friend who is looking into purchasing a 335is coupe. Now the thing that has me pondering is that he wants to do a 6466 FFTEC bottom mount turbo on the car. My question is, can you backend flash these cars? These transmission slip after 460 wheel apparently so are there upgraded clutches for these cars and lastly can the transmission handle over 600+ if all the other questions are a yes. Thanks

    If you are an avid reader of this network (and you should be) then you remember an article from a few months back of a 991 Turbo S versus a Lamborghini Aventador in a standing kilometer drag race. The 991 Turbo S won the drag race but the Aventador had the higher trap speeds meaning it was pulling harder up top. That standing kilometer result means that from a roll the Aventador should win against a stock 991 Turbo S. Well, last month we happened to see an Aventador go up against two 991 Turbo S models. The Aventador beats both of the 991 Turbos. So what happens if the 991 Turbo S gets a tune and full exhaust? What you see below. From both a stop and a roll the 991 Turbo S pulls the Aventador and it does so easily. The run from a stop does not feature a launch from either car though and they simply mash the gas. Despite having 'only' a 3.8 liter flat-6 engine versus the Aventador 700 horsepower 6.5 liter V12 the Porsche's turbochargers give it the advantage. It certainly does not hurt it weighs roughly 500 pounds less and has a dual clutch transmission.
