Big single, smaller twins, flow is flow. If you can move exhaust through the turbines and air through the motor more efficiently you will be able to make more power on less octane. BUT with that said, the twins will flow a little better than the single as far as getting exhaust out, so this helped for sure, you would have to go to a pretty big single to match the twins flow. "

I'm still not sure whether or not I want to add race gas when I start tuning mine. I'm thinking start off with 93+meth and see how far that gets me then add in the race gas. That should provide some decent 93 numbers guys seem to keep asking for.
I would be happy even with 480-500whp on 93, and e85 for some drag racing. A smaller turbo will be more fun on the street than a big turbo. It'll take a while for this platform to max out a 6466. "

" It's almost as if they intentionally added rasp to the exhaust to make it more "M-like" - I am not sure why (guessing turbos preventing flow), but it sounds horrible - it really does.

The thing is though, the E46 M3 when cold was extremely raspy (a lot of people disliked that, I liked it) - but when warmed up, changed tone. This rasp - again, sounds terrible even though it's cold, but might sound better when warmed up; also this is likely off a camera phone with a cheap mic... So, who knows - when we hear it in person, hopefully it sounds much better.

On another note, no matter how much I want to love this car, things like this are making me wonder. I will definitely check it out when it hits dealerships, buying it is another story. "

Based on what I've seen so far for 93 octane I think 460whp is a reasonable limit for a 58 and 500whp for a 6466. You can push them higher but it will become less consistent.
The 91 logs were perfect. D's #1 priority when tuning that kit was safety first, everything else second, including WHP numbers. Anytime he started seeing anything in a log he didn't like he backed it down until he was happy again. I will say, it seemed we were on the verge of a fueling crash at that point as HPFP was doing its normal dippy dance. This was before we modified the rail and the pump, after that we ended up with 67X no meth with some higher octane, and again logs that kept the most careful tuner I have ever worked with happy. The last thing we wanted was a hurt motor, we did at least 500 dyno pulls and another 500-1000 street pulls on that car at power levels varying from 550-725WHP, and he still daily drives the car 30 miles to work everyday without a hint of oil consumption. I have no doubt 600WHP can be had on 93 and the logs would be happy, this is just based on the experience we had tuning that first kit. I guess time will tell. "

But still, surprising there isn’t a hard cylinder shut off or the like.

But no question, auto switching to map 4 is very, very smart on your part. Most piggybacks couldn’t dream of that type of control and forethought, so credit where credit is due.
The DME does nothing at all. It just motors along like everything is fine with a 20:1 AFR. It doesn't even lower its load target. Bizarre.

Fuel trims work within a +34% range whether you are using a flash only tune, back end flash + JB4, or JB4 alone. With a JB4 in the mix the JB4 also can dynamically adjust the fuel pressure return to give another 30-40% of fuel trim room. "
