The issue the UK Weistecs are having is they are very low on torque. The M113K ones are at around 530rwtq which is a long way off the quoted 615rwtq. The quoted 575rwhp is spot on the money and with a bit more fine tuning of the map should be nearer the 600rwhp mark.

Heating issues are also a problem. Unless you have split cooling, Killer Chiller and Meth it seems you will also have issues after just one or two WOT runs

If Weistec are online over the next few days it would be interesting to hear your thoughts although I know Acid (UK) is in contact with you guys on a daily basis

I'll post some dyno graphs up with IAT's etc once the build is complete

And I just want to point out I have no desire to ever add compatibility. Cobb users should use the AP, period. Cobb also provides great support. "

atomos319 created the thread Could my intermittent bank one oxgen sensor problems be caused by a tuning issue?.
" I have been getting a persistent 2c3d code (PreCat 02 sensor lines/wires, Bank 1) on my 335i running a custom Wedge tune. Now I am getting a 2c77 intermittently as well (AfterCat 02 sensor signal, Bank 1)

I have replaced BOTH of these sensors in the last six months- it made no difference.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what it could be other than (1) something in the tune my car disagrees with or (2) the actual engine wiring harness.

Is theory # 1 even plausible? I did notice when I went back to the original map for about a week the code didn't generate. But, to be fair I have gotten similar "false reassurances that all is well" while tuned since then as well. Critically the code seems to generate more frequently while engine braking.

If if it could be a wiring issue, are there any diagrams on what wires to look at? Replacing the whole harness is at least 1k, and simply do not have it right now. "

I would say one Full day, or two days at the most.

Will it be similar to RB since it is a bottom mount kit? or it is too soon to tell? "

You can thank fantasy football for that. The average fan has become inundated with a desire for 24/7 metrics and "analysis". Even when said analysis is completely lacking in actual, ya know, analysis.

There are def. benefits though. "

Its pretty cool, they're saying (from what i've read) they're not doing it like hard knocks, but they're doing it more from the sidelines, really trying to show what its like in Pre Season camps, staying out of the way, and more action, less drama. "

Second, I'm gonna need new head studs. My head flanges are 3/8" thick so ill probably just need studs that are that much longer. Any suggestions?
the heater element needs to stay plugged in or your waterpump will stay on wayyyy longer than necessary on shut down. I kept mine in that part of the pcv hose, and cut the heater element housing piece down so it was round and then ran a hose from it to the turbo intake filter. It keeps your pcv system in tact and keeps the heater element functioning. Pm me if you want pics for better details. "

No being negative, we have 110, E85 and Methanol to substitute currently, and we all know that VTT (soon to be released) and FuelIt have fueling solutions for the future. Planning ahead is always a good idea. "

Meth exists as does race gas, both of which work great. "
