    Source your own motor and get a different quote from a different shop. From what Chris@CKI is saying, your shop is overcharging by a lot.

    Wait, what? Who told you that? It's the opposite especially if you get superior pieces made out of better materials. What is your question regarding it?

    Great numbers here and he Doc Race single turbo kit for the BMW N54 motor continues to impress. This particular E92 335i is running a Comp 6267 turbocharger and boost is 23-24 psi on a 93 octane and methanol map and it goes up to 26 psi on an E30 tuned map. Here are the specs: 132k miles on the clock -93 and meth map is 23-24psi -the E30 map is 23psi ramping up to 26psi at redline. -100% Meth on both maps Mods: -Doc Race Twin Scroll manifold -JB Comp 6267 -JB4 -BMS Meth Kit -Boost Addictions Custom Calibration Very solid numbers here and obviously the methanol is a big part of it. With the meth it is possible to have an easy 600+ wheel horsepower 335i daily driver. The Doc Race kits continue to impress and reports thus far are of quality fitment and parts. Definitely a solid option in the crowded N54 market.

    No one cares lol that's not what it's about my turbos are in great condition. What I care about is that my cost is over 10k if I said yes to swapping motors. That's more than 2/3 of the car's blue book value. Not worth it to me

    DavidV replied to a thread P30FF Code in N54
    Damn. My car has also been throwing 30FF codes lately. My mod list is very modest engine wise. It started while tracking my car, JB4 on map 5, no backend flash, and has been growing worse ever since while DD the car. At this poin MAP1 also produces 30FF and half engine light at 4K RPM when I let go of te throttle, only map 0 remains as a non code throwing option, which I thourougly hate almost as much as limp mode. I ordered a vacuum tester and 3m of vacuum hose. After 7.5 years of spiritted driving I hope it's just the vacuum hoses and not the DVs. But with my luck in these things it's nearly always the most expensive part that breaks. One thing at the time. Testing the vacuum first.

    harms replied to a thread Oscillating throttle issue in N54
    Well im in Australia so depending on where you are my cost probably isn't a good indication. I got a bunch of stuff done at the same time, but the actually reprogram was about $100 aud. I'm getting it done again on its own, and will be $300 aud. If on the latest firmware BMW can re-program over the top. No idea what causes it. My issue came back after many months of smooth driving, about 3 days after flashing my custom E60 flash, so I think its something to do with adaptions getting stuffed up that can't be reset. But that's just a guess it could be anything - I've heard of people completely stock who have the problem.

    These two are siblings in a sense as they are both part of the Volkswagen Auto Group but they are aimed at different audiences. The Panamera Turbo is slightly smaller and more of an M5 mid-size competitor whereas the S8 is a larger luxury sedan that goes up against the 7-Series and S-Class. While the S8 is larger the weight between the two is actually close with the Audi coming in roughly 40 pounds heavier. Both are all wheel drive but the Panamera feature a dual clutch transmission. The issue for the Panamera Turbo is its V8 design is long in the tooth especially when compared to the Audi 4.0 TFSI V8. It's why Porsche developed a new 4.0 twin turbo V8 similar in design to the Audi 4.0 TFSI V8 motor which will replace the Panamera 4.8 liter mill. The S8 Plus gets a boost to 605 horsepower as well so it has the Panamera Turbo easily outgunned here. The Panamera Turbo hangs in surprisingly well but the S8 Plus takes it. It's definitely time for the Panamera to get a new engine and new chassis.

    Routing three pumps is simple. Use the Radium tank which is setup for three, then use a 3-1 Y to a -8 or -10 line then T to your choice of lines for the HPFP/Pi split (I'm going to do -8/-6 split). Tony shared all of this in his thread linked above.

    Whoa there McLaren! Not so fast. This talk coming from McLaren boss Ron Dennis sounds pretty good. He said, "I honestly believe that the next world champions after Mercedes will be McLaren. We'll get to that goal before other people." Will they though? McLaren has not won a race since the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2012. Mercedes-AMG won the Formula championship in 2014 and 2015. Is this year really shaping up any differently? The only thing that stopped Mercedes-AMG from winning the last race was their own drivers crashing into each other. The upcoming Monaco Grand Prix this Sunday is only the sixth race of the calendar so it is more than mathematically possible for someone to catch and pass Mercedes-AMG in the standings: It just does not look like it will be McLaren that does it. Only Ferrari and Red Bull seem to be putting up any kind of fight and Mercedes is still dominating. Realistically, McLaren doesn't have a shot until next year and Ron Dennis knows it. Plus, Honda really needs to improve their motor. Good luck with that. Source

    God damn this is upsetting. I had a blown motor and I was all stock. (Last year at 75k miles) but it was covered under my CPO. Issue was rod bearing as well. What the fuck is going on in these N54's that we keep shitting rod bearings?

    SO what are people's thoughts on what AD-E offers vs RB's external PCV option A kit that Rob sells? BostonBeemah I see you run the RB external kit in your sig. Is yours the option A? Why did you switch to what RB offers? I have BMS OCC currently but figured I should also block the ports and tap but wasn't sure who to go with. RB's kit or AD-E's

    This is something I can definitely make: Makes 9–12 INGREDIENTS: 2 large white onions 3–4 slices mozzarella cheese 2 cups flour 5 eggs 2 cups bread crumbs Oil, for frying Marinara sauce INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Peel and cut onions into 1-centimeter rings, then separate the rings. 2. Slice the mozzarella into 4 even strips, and place a smaller onion ring in the center of a larger one. Fill the gap between the rings with strips of mozzarella. Repeat with remaining onion rings and freeze them for 1 hour. 3. Place the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs into three separate bowls. Dip each prepared ring into the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs, then back into the egg, and one last time into the bread crumbs. Repeat with the remaining onion rings. 4. Heat the oil in a pot over high heat. Fry the rings until golden brown, being careful not to fry them for too long as the cheese may ooze out completely. 5. Serve with marinara!
