You think I need your praise? Please, I could care less. The car's capability isn't conditional on anyone's delusions. Would have been nice to smack the S54's around for a second time... oh well next time.

I believe the S54 has won every single BMW event at Shift-S3ctor that they've participated in except for the event your car showed and they all had ECU issues. Kenton took home 1st at AA3 and then you took home first in AA4 and then Marcus/Kenton took home 1st and 2nd in AA5.

Kenton's best trap at AA3 was 178, Marcus trapped 181 at AA5, have you ever trapped higher than 178? Unless I'm mistaken your trap was like 172 or 173 at AA4? So trap speeds they've got you beat, w/o question. Roll racing is another story as we saw with Marcus vs Drew. "

There is no way to skew the traps, if you're going for trap you start from a dig. That's why they have two classes/trophys. Roll Racing vs Trap Speed. "

" Wait, JRcart SLS lost to Drew's M3. Sticky didn't you have a bet with JRcart? Maybe he now has better appreciation of built M3's, theoretically yours will be much quicker too. "

" Its a big game. Plus the guys doing a rolling start wont get the full 1/2 mile to accelerate. Then you have to take in to consideration the guys jumping the starting cones will trap out better also. "

Well lets put it this way.

Regardless of what PP has done, GAD has done something no other tuner has and so far or can do.
Transferring and making the car run with a different engine not designed for the car, add a 4 wheel drive system, beef up the trans, raise rpm, add new turbos as well and make it all work with no issues (Ecu, TCU and electronics).

No one has done that, and you have to give both credit and respect to what they have accomplished. "

" On that note, I was hoping to mimic tables found while learning the backend flash and digging around in factory set ups. I'd really rather use factory turbos at first to get a good base set up.

Admitingly I have never tuned anything myself before neither have I ever swapped a motor into a chassis it didn't belong in. This whole project is meant to be a learning experience for me as I am graduating college and need something to make my life stressful. I do appreciate everyone's help! "

" From what research I've done MS can tackle direct injection, but oncemore that will just take more research on my part. I'm not against changing sensors to generic ones in order to appease the MS's demand while still getting the motor to run.

You did raise an interesting point: boost control. My end game is a single turbo, might it be easier to start there and run my own system for boost control? "
