" I like the powder coating on the tubing, looks super clean. Sucks about the belt, but like you said, ellwell. I'm sure you're more excited about TT now anyway eh? Or are you thinking break all records, sell car, buy something else? "

" I read the newest megasquirt board has control for up to 4 camshafts for timing, I'll have to look deeper into what kind of outputs it has, and if that could control vanos or not. Also on my list is the e-dipstick, which could easily be remedied by a fabbed traditional dipstick.
The standalone route would save me huge hassle of swapping the interior to mate with the ecu. Any idea on Motec vs. Megasquirt? I can't find any hard info on the two being compared, other than the Motec being more expensive. A standalone would be able to control supplemental fueling as well as the DI, or just switch over to port injection entirely.
Sadly the chassis I'm going for might end up a bit heavier than an e90, I want something comfortable and something that can put down the immense torque this build could produce. A 700whp e30 seems useless to me. "

Calm down there stud muffin. I am about as far from a hater as possible. it was a joke - hence the picture of Obama in it. There is nothing that shouts "joke" more than Obama. Go unbunch your panties.

" I can't remember screen name, but if you search around there is a guy who swapped in an N54, welll 335 interior as well though in an older BMW chassis, can't remember which to be honest. Like I said though, MOTEC is an option. Definitely not going to find an inexpensive option on this motor, so be ready to spend some coin. I really am not sure how a standalone would fair controlling VANOS, DI, anti-knock sensors, etc. I think you'd lose a lot of what enables the N54 to do what it does.

Seeing someone do a PI swap on an N54 into another chassis though would be something. Especially a very lightweight chassis since the N54 is after all, on the light side. I think for what you're looking for that would make for a great project. I can tell you right now NO ONE has done any standalone on the N54. There is one person I can think of that was using a MOTEC system to control another set of injectors for supplemental fueling, this was someone Terry@BMS mentioned at a 1/2 mile event last year. Haven't heard anything since though.

Good luck with the project! "

Sadly, it appears that I've rep'd you recently, so I can't do it again, but thanks! I was actually looking at that already so this is good confirmation.

Just to to be curious, have you used Zcs before? If so, how would you say it compares?

" Hi Folks,

I've traditionally used Zaino products to detail my car, but I'm about out of my Zcs and since Zaino hasn't introduced anything new in years, I thought I'd see what others are using. A couple criteria:

1. Has to be easy to use. I love that Zcs is just a wipe-on product. Couldn't be easier. I greatly dislike products that have to "haze" and then be buffed off. I do my annual paint correction and that is enough effort. I prefer my after wash to be easy.

2. I hand wash my car weekly and typically like to apply some sort of polish/detail spray afterwards (hence the easy part above). My point is it doesn't have to last forever - I'll take shine over durability.

3. Can't cost an arm and a leg. Something in the Zaino realm. "
