    So I've posted in n54tec but I figured I'd ask this here for anyone who may can help but isn't on the other forum. My car is an 07 335i with just a muffler delete and the jb4. About 3 weeks ago I did an update on the jb4 and put in e85 for the first time before taking it to the dragstrip. I did 3 gallons of e85 and the rest 93 and set the jb4 on map 5. I drove for close to 70 miles while doing some wot pulls to let the tuner "learn" the mix and settings. At the dragstrip I noticed my times were a little worse than with 93 and map1 and and at wot I didn't get as much power as I had before. The data logs showed that I had too much ethanol mixed and my lpfp sensor was out. The next few days I ran the mix out and put in just 93 again set it back to map 1 and went to data log and under wot the car felt like it misfired and the service light came on. I ordered and replaced the lpfp sensor and lost one of the nuts that holds on the intake manifold (still waiting on the nut). One of my friends recommend due to pulling so much timing with the e85 data log and the map1 93 octane data log to go ahead and do the backend flash so I used the mhd to flash the bms pump flash, still didn't stop the misfiring/power loss or service light from coming on under wot My data logs after the backend flash showed that bank 1 was running lean. After doing tons of searching and asking friends I've come up with a few possible problems but I could use any help I can get. Our list so far includes : 1. Old firmware possible bug? - I just redid the firmware with iso29 at lunch haven't tried it yet- 2. Middle nut being off intake manifold causing leak bad enough to throw off AFR? -waiting on nut to replace- 3. Fouled spark plugs? -checking them as soon as I get a day off to see what they say 4. Bad coils 1-3? -moving them to 456 to see if they run lean to check coils 5. Bad o2 sensor? -checking next day off using multimeter 6. Bad injectors? -if so that's a lot of cash.... I'd like to figure this out soon since my downpipe will be here Thursday and I have a chance to use a lift to put them on next monday What other issues could it possibly be? Or has anyone had this happen before? I need to get my car fixed ASAP since it's my daily and I can't constantly borrow my dad's car. Plus it sucks but my mom's in hospis so any time I'm working on my daily that I need for work I'm not able to spend time with her.

    Have you considered just charging for the mobile app Sticky. I doubt i'd use it much but I usually have no impulse control for sub 5 dollar micro purchases like apps and steam games.

    I wonder if any of the piggy-backs can take into account for upgraded IC, and or any DPF/EGR deletes? or are these a must ECU-FLASH in order to accomplish such? if a JBD and upgraded IC works, that may be a better and simpler way to go. Best bang for the buck. I see Puerto Rican 335d has done a lot, any Dyno results by now? Thanks :) Hmm, what else can be done to the E70 US spec'd diesel? I know the 335d has many more options. wonder why?

    Yeesh. I was looking at potentially a CPO 2012 to 2103 X5 50i for my wife. After all this I'm leaning away from it now. Back to looking at Cayennes! -Rich

    I remember how careful I had to be in parking garages to make sure I didn't set off alarms. Definitely no way to be low key in that.

    Did they change the label on Eagle Rare 10? Could only find the black label (in the back) one. Agreed, good for the price.

    Hey i've checked and the IP you provided isn't blocked by the forum and my host checked and it isn't blocked by the server. You're sure that is the IP you're trying to access the site from? If so, I'm out of ideas.

    The issue with the notification bar expanding on zoom in on mobile is now resolved. Please verify. That's the most cost effective solution for you guys right now until we get a dedicated mobile solution. On the bright side, you do not get a neutered mobile experience.

    quattr0 replied to a thread Stock manual m4 dyno in S55
    My guess is the tech saw the needle reached yellow bar, even not red yet, he let it go. I'll ask them to keep it to 7500 next time, b4 tuning.

    There was a time when 400 wheel horsepower seemed like a lot out of the stock frame N54 turbos. Then the 500 wheel horsepower mark was crossed. Then the 600 wheel horsepower mark. Now, we are on the verge of cracking 700 wheel horsepower with modified stock frame N54 turbochargers. Who ever thought this would be possible? It truly is impressive and truly a milestone in N54 tuning. Really, it's stunning considering how many times in the past people would complain about the 'tiny' snails on the N54. Well, those tiny snails are making some big power with the right modifications. BimmerBoost would like to congratulate member @The Ghost for his achievement. His data and details are below. Continuing from my previous thread, I decided to go back to the dyno to do a few tweaks. My setup is as follows: N54, FBO, 6MT JB4 G5, Custom back-end flash VTT 2+ turbos (20T, clipped) VTT turbo inlets, w/BMS DCI BMS Port Injection kit Split Second injector controller (AIC1-G4H) Fuel-it Stage 3 dual LPFPs e85 Stock exhaust (catted) The only change since last time is I ditched my customer rear inlet, replacing it with the VTT silicone hose. This fits much better and is actually shorter than the one I build by a good bit. I didn't have long on the dyno, so I upped the boost slights (holding 27.x) and added some mid range timing (10 degrees max now). I was very pleased with the results. Here are a few notes: I still have a tip-in rich condition, which I will fix in the PI map Boost is not hitting target (28psi) - I may change the JB4 rpm-based duty bias to see if it will hold 28psi (there seems to be more pwm headway, albeit small) The car kept making power with timing - I think I could run 2 more degrees as VTT did, perhaps cracking 700whp - I decided not to risk popping the motor today :) I'm still waiting to remove the catted exhaust in favor of a 3.5" single Attached are some dyno comparisons: Comparison between my previous personal best and my runs today My maxed FBO meth/e85 car vs. my final tune today FBO map 0 baseline vs. today's final tune Here is the datalog of the last run: http://datazap.me/u/ghost/dyno-log-3-105?log=0&data=1-3-4-11-18-24-25-26-27-28-29&zoom=30-81 Special thanks to Terry@BMS for the extensive support and parts, Fuel-it, and VTT for badass products and killer support.
