geshsoft replied to the thread Electric Turbo Confirmed for S-Q7 TDI.
" Coming to think of it, turbochargers recycle some exhaust energy at the expense of increased backpressure. Also, and correct me if I am wrong, the main reason why the turbochargers are as close as they are to the engine is for their direct coupling into the intake. If the turbines are used instead as electrical generators then the location does not need to be as close to the engine as it is which could reduce the thermal stress quite a bit and remove the need of wastegates. If anything, if the battery is used as a buffer to recycle the exhaust flow energy it makes more sense for them to be in the rear (where the battery is located), from electrical stand point. The recycled energy can be used to power the electrical compressor and increase efficiency overall (less load on the crankshaft coupled generator). Another advantage of the electrical compressor that I can think of is that it is decoupled from the crankshaft which imposes certain limitations to superchargers, generally speaking. The downside increased weight. Oh well, this is just the 2c of an electrical engineer with a limited knowledge in IC engines. "

It sounds like your stock .bin file may be corrupted. The Stage 0 will be stock. If you have stock DPs/exhaust then you should be able to pass emissions if all is running well. You could have probably passed on the BMS pump flash. Your vin number will be different as that is embedded in the Stage 0 file but can be changed. It shouldn't pose a problem for your emissions test. I am just glad they did away with inspections and emissions in SC many years ago. "

So these are the same ones that go into an e36 M3 from the factory? In that case, I have them sitting in a bag in the shop somewhere. Thanks! "

People have no idea. Whatever, when they line up with one they will. Their egos will be the only thing made obsolete. "

yeah I understand, that, damn I forgot premium fuel, damn thats gonna cost
but will it screw up stuff if I use the cheaper fuel?

any ideas on the VIN plates, i.e. where they are and how to spot a fake one or cloned one
