    Andy, send me an email. I did so much testing on the stock solenoid, it works but I found why it won't hold proper boost. I found a solenoid that is plug and play, same hz as the stock one and will hold boost. I will send you one to test.

    spxxx replied to a thread BEST BACK END FLASH MAP in N54
    I would run about 70% Ethanol as you're putting a lot of stress on your HPFP for diminishing returns on power. I run a custom map 6 peaking at 17psi tapering to 12psi at redline, I'm using a modified BMS map with some tweaks and 3D fuel scalar with a flare of the E30 flash that Justin (v8bait) posted a while back. I have a stage 1 lpfp kit waiting to be installed, just lazy but very excited to start running E50ish and bump my timing up to around 13.5 - 14* But seriously, log, edit map, log, edit map, log, edit map, log, edit map, and log some more. I would check out the downloads Tab and the v8bait "goodies" he's a smart guy and has posted some valuable stuff on here.

    - Dragtimes.com "While we’re still waiting for the Lamborghini Huracan to hit the streets over here in the US, they are out and about elsewhere in the world. We came across some video of a brand new Lamborghini Huracan in Rosso Mars running heads up vs a Porsche 911 Turbo S PDK Cabriolet.The Huracan’s 5.2L V10 with 610 horsepower, 7 speed dual clutch transmission and 3,450 pound curb weight should put it pretty far ahead of the Porsche’s 3.8L Twin Turbocharged Flat 6 with 530 horsepower and a 7 speed PDK transmission and 3,600 curb weight. However, the races are very close with each car pulling ahead at different points in the race." http://www.dragtimes.com/blog/lamborghini-huracan-vs-porsche-911-turbo-s-pdk-racing

    propshaft center bearing support is bullshit rubber, you'll tear it up from wheelhop. If your tranny mounts aren't toast it's the driveshaft center support bearing.

    Well, went back on the dyno friday to play with some things. Final Hp was 550hp on pump gas. I think this about the max for this setup on 92oct with the stock map sensor. It was 18psi creeping to 20psi at redline. The biggest thing I took away from this session is boost control. I am having great success controlling boost with the factory solenoid and cobb. Im still on the 11.6psi (iirc) wg spring and I'm able to run spring pressure all the way past the stock map.( I put a bunch of base duty cycle in it and hit 23psi and shut me down. It was nice to know that it capable of it. I have ordered a few aftermarket solenoids to try, but at this point the stock solenoid is working so well I'm going to leave it alone. Torque curve still looks like a shitty mustang or 2j so i played with the cams a bit and saw very little change. The car still has a stock exhaust so there might be power to be had there. Printer on the dyno wasn't working. Have go back on Thursday and see if I can get some printouts or at least some screen shots.

    -335i- I can totally appreciate where you're coming from. Honestly though...we're looking at a new harness no matter what and in this case...I went the route of KISS :lol: Anything I can do to keep it as stock as possible, clean, robust, and keep the DME happy while meeting our needs....that is the direction I go. The secondary harness is clean, pretty easy to install (especially on the 1 series) and supplies sufficient power to the secondary. This also gives the user additional flexibility as they can control it a variety of ways and both pumps aren't running continuously and generating heat. IMO...trying to run two 450's off the stock harness would be like pulling the stock amplifier and installing a 1000 watt amplifier. Can you do it...yes, should you...no...and if you do, you better not turn it up very much and you're probably not going to get the performance you were looking for. In this case I won't tell you that you can't do it....but I won't be offering that option and if you choose to go that route you're on your own. ;)

    Good point...I host stuff on imageshack but it gives a new link every time I upload. I'm not familiar with manipulating the system much beyond that. Guess I'll have to give it more thought. :facepalm :lol: I know....just keeping you informed....and I feel bad bumping this thread repeatedly just to update a list. On the other forum I just update the original post and the thread doesn't get bumped to the top.

    BTW...your P2A22 error is a good observation. I'll look that up in the book tomorrow and see what it says (I don't trust an internet search) and if I can reproduce it. Did you happen to notice any change after you cleared the code? ie. gas gauge reading changed?

    I responded on the other board so I'll copy and paste...;) With all due respect, I think we're talking about two different things here. The OP is talking about physically running out of fuel and the DME reporting incorrect fuel levels. As for the the float sensors...in Jstang's case since his issue only appeared recently...it seems as though his calibration may have walked it's way out? There are a few others that have had issues with their fuel gauge reading incorrectly but it's usually immediately after they've been in the tank. They fill up and the gauge only goes to 3/4 and then doesn't go below 1/4 tank. At this point, I'm honestly not sure what's causing it. I personally have had multiple pump configurations, float sensors, top hats....in my car and never had this issue despite regularly running my car near empty for pump changes and testing. A couple people that have had the issue have changed float sensors and the issue still persisted. So it doesn't seem to be a float sensor issue. A couple thoughts....the float sensor is just a resistor....when the tank is full IIRC it reads approx. 1000 ohms.....when it's empty, it reads approx. 50 ohms. There are two of them, one on the drivers side and one on the passenger side. If that resistance changes for some reason, your gauge will read differently. In some cases it almost seems as though the DME has been reset in that regard because even when those that have experienced it put their old float sensor back in...they still had the issue. Possible causes (brain storming here) 1. Float sensor itself (either one) 2. Float sensor wires 3. Pinched wires 4. Connectors at top hat (both sides) 5. Stuck float (either one) I'll try and play with some sensors tomorrow and see if/how I can influence their readings. My car is currently getting aligned...hoping to have it back tomorrow. If so, I'll play with INPA a bit as well. What it comes down to is that I haven't experienced this nor have any of my local customers as far as I know. I didn't really want to purposely mess up my fuel gauge just so I could try and fix it....but it looks like that's what I'm going to have to do. :lol:

    I saw you posted on the other forum about this....there's a thread there titled "Pulled my front drive shaft. Easy, no codes and RWD!" where a few have done this for a few thousand miles without issues. I'd be curious in a dyno before and after just to see the results.

    So maybe the 2 pump setup doesn't have to work so high pwm levels to reach the 72psi target, otherwise with stock wiring the 20amp fuse would be way too small. +After thinking a while the Steves relay control is actually fine, cause the pwm controlled pump will ease up after the twins has reached the target.

    My car fuel gauge did the same couple of weeks ago with brand new bone stock LPFP. Ironically, just after I saw the similar thread here :) On my case everything was fine after installation and then after 2 months, gauge was dropping only to 1/2 tank. I thought that I didn't do proper installation and something has moved to blocking the float movement. I tried JB4 1-5 menu to reset the gauges but nothing changed. Then one day, the temp gauge was set to show under/overboost and I was about to set the fuel gauge to show boost - both gauges freeze. When exiting the dash menu, fuel gauge was showing the fuel level & oil temp was showing the oil temp even the menus had set otherwise. So, parked my car and did the 1-5 (reset gauges) everything went back to normal. Since then the fuel gauge has been showing correct level.

    I just got my pump set up, it activates at 15 PSI via a Hobbs switch and 30 amp relay, the hobbs switch is under the hood and the relay is right off the battery with as short as possible 12 gauge wire to the pump. This is the correct way to do it, but I know Steve hates it, but I ran two 450's both wired into the factory harness for over 3000 miles and never blew a single fuse, so it is possible, but not the ideal set up. The way steve has it set up is perfect. I got lucky because I had a return style system set up on here a while back, and I had the foresight to leave my relay and all wiring in trunk, made the install pretty easy..:)

    Got about 150 miles on it now, the pedal keeps coming up, so its not near as bad, this just concrets the fact if I used the high setting it would be perfect. The pedal feel literally blows me away how light it is, shifts are smooth, no jerks when taking off, so far so good, this will change the N54 MT high horsepower landscape
