" I was told by a person here that they were running the Wedge 15 degree flash on a FBO 93oct car and the guy's words were "seems stable". He also told me he was sending datalogs across too "

ECU, PCM, DME, ECM. They're all pretty much the same thing lol. I've heard all of them, just the thing that controls things . "

" I tried Wedge's flash and I had nothing but issues. First, it would limp with a transmission error on normal cruise and the car would come to a stop with the RPM's launching up and down and the car would be lunging forward. He sent me three revisions and the problem kept occurring. On the 4th revision I would hit limp mode going WOT and sending the jb4 into map 4. When I sent him the codes he said it was a hardware error. I loaded up the BMS map which I ran for over a year with NO PROBLEMS and everything went back to normal, no limping, no map 4, no weird rpm jumping and no transmission error. How can it be a hardware error if the BMS map fixed everything. I'm now running Justin's map and it works flawlessly. I had really clean logs with Wedges flash but the errors, limp modes, and poor diagnosis leaves me wondering if this guy really knows what hes doing. No offense to him. "

This is why I wanted a Cobb unit for the S65; I'm tired of the bullshit shadow-tuner culture in the S65/S85 world.
I've never attempted to, but was under the impression that the bimmerboost flash was capable of reading out the S65 DME and flashing it. Someone would just need to devote the time to reading the ROM and editing it and you are good to. "

read somewhere recently that doge has sold 469 vipers this year , coming WAY under their estimated sales... ooops maybe its not worth the $ but I think its a lot nicer than many other comparable vehicles so I am not sure why... i would think all the jeep heads who like sports cars would be potential buyers , my new 2014 gc has an amazing navi interface that i believe the viper has that would be fn awesome... i would take the new viper over the new c7 for sure, sure theres a price difference but there are prob 1000s of people who can afford both the v7 and viper and chose the c7, to me thats insane that they sold less than 500 units !

solid investment, looking foward to your findings even though i do not find it sensible to buy a brand new M3/4 and rip the brand new car apart to go fast... but many will i bet, and its people buying M's not non m cars so the $$ to mod is likely there with a more mature crowd... Cant wait to see what happens "

Mid-pull 29+ psi, 15 degrees of advance, 5500RPM meat of the powerband, number 2 injector plug somehow vibrates out, dropping all fuel to number 2 cylinder instantly, log is a scary thing to behold, bank 1 afr jumping to over 15:1 and HPFP dropping all at the same time. SOMEHOW the DME being the magic box it is, catches it and throws it into limp, I pull over check codes, #2 injector malfunction, hmmm. Pop the hood find the plug out just quite not seated and am 100% sure when I fire it back up the idle is going to be lumpy still with a torched cylinder. Fire it back up, dead smooth do 3 more pulls at these levels, logs are all perfect. In ANY PI car that cylinder is gone if something like that happens.

The point of this story is, if the DME can work its magic to protect the motor in a situation like that, you must really be doing bad things to lose one of these, from a lean / knock condition.
this is impressive on many different levels...

one being your turbos hitting 29+ psi .... quality lightweight parts make a difference huh "

" yes i know, exactly my point. Never once did i hear a ptf or bms motor blowing shortly after trying a map... ask Dan (ak335i) his friend was one of the first... there was one last week i heard of and two in between there that I have heard of and I am some random person in NY

part of the problem may be users having piggybacks being told to put this is user adjustment xyz etc, not remembering what they did... terry didnt let meth safety be changed for very very long, now you can set custom boost targets on fuel and turn off flow detection...

similar things that people MAY do when they want the "fastest stock turbo" map, etc.... so who knows but wedge leads all on blown motors, ask around "

" i agree he is helpful but many more motors have been blown than people know about with his flash, not sure why people dont make it public, but i would go back to the drawing board before sending that same file off to someone else and accept another donation.

But i have heard many stories like Tony's ..... helping remotely many times but the stories I have heard than have him send these same files to people he knows are running pump gas who do not know much of anything about the key factors in engine health while running aggressively , which can easily be told by a few emails back and forth by him and the user. It is what it is, im done, i shared my .02 but I would 100000% stick with PTF or Terry over him personally. "
