I think that the people who make the JB and Procede (and other CAN snooping/intercepting things) have the best chance of making something happen.

They seem to know what CAN messages are what and have the ability to modify them. "

Well gee wiz, the comparison was about taking a new comfy fast car, and comparing it to a old not comfy fast car. So right in theme with the comparison I did my own comparison of the same. Guess what, I also put in my own personal opinion of what I like to drive more often, as I have both. That you decided my comparison is not valid because you have officially defined motorsports for us. Well, we can only thank you for that, how many pre 1980 German sports cars do you own sticky, since you seem to know all about them.. Cheers "

" If (and that's a big IF) the TCU ever gets "hacked", it certainly isn't going to be because someone ran a brute force crack on the key.

That will likely take many human lifetimes to crack using the fastest computers. Who knows how long the key is.

It will likely be done using some other exploit.

The Xbox360 was also impossible to hack from a pure encryption standpoint, until people found out you could hold the reset line down on the CPU for a period of time and cause a glitch (or something of the sort) which opened up a void in the security.

Also, with all the security Microsoft used, they forgot about the simple and obvious backdoor...the DVD drive firmware. The point is... "

If you're moving more air it will always make a bigger difference % wise. Everything I have seen leads me to the conclusion that there is room to gain in the N54/N55 head. "

" This is fun, and proves the classics can be just as fast when purpose built to do one thing. I own 4 cars all made before 1978, all German, all fast, and all fun. Which car do I prefer to drive 98% of the time except on fun summer weekends. My E90 N54, why? Well, because its fast, comfortable, AND fun. Not just fast and fun. "

" Stage 1's with billet wheels will easily get you in the 400WHP with some headroom up to around 460-470WHP pushing them on pump and meth or E85, and an aggressive tune. Stage 2's on the same fuels and aggressive tune, will net you over 500WHP. So if 400WHP is your goal either one can easily and reliably get you there. As far as EGT's here are some logs a I did last night showing EGT's, Back Pressure, and shaft speed. Keep in mind this is with an over top aggressive tune, that will honestly kill most stock frames very quickly we are doing some testing at these levels to see just how long things will last, and with some different wheel combos to compare shaft speeds etc. As you can see EGT never gets to 1500 F even at peak BP these are great EGT's, part of this could be the use of E85, as we have seen upper 1600's on race gas alone. The cooling effects of E85 are very real. I have also attached the log from that pull below if interested. This was done at 85F ambient and pulling straight up hill as this is the only place I can run close to my house right now as they closed my test track down with speed bumps, we still have zero timing corrections / throttle closures, with 15.4 degrees of timing, and HPFP is rock solid with the Shotgun in place.
