lol yeah thanks i deleted them i should have reported them but i didnt i dont need negative comments on my videos, im the driver ok, my passengers are my video guys im waiting for like 4 videos of runs from last week and the ones i did today racing a 500hp mustang on e85, and 2 from the intial setup, what i dont think you realize is the tune and flash i just got yesterday, i had basic stuff and flash, it also took me over 2 months before i could even back flash my car so its been a lot longer journey to get the car there. It pulled really good in this heat tonight to almost 20lbs boost with meth
A bit melodramatic don't you think? I guess I could have fluffed up my verbiage a bit but my questions in the comments are still valid.
#POP - progress over protection; glad to hear you're getting her all buttoned up! "
" ABR - I would love to see some data backing this claim up. In a turbo application more CFM does not always equal more power. You actually lose velocity, but if the head is one of the limiting factors then you can gain HP. If the turbo is the limiting factor, then porting the head if it is already free flowing may be worthless. I haven't seen anyone else try this so getting some info out there if it is a good mod will get you more business! "
" As far as I know the F3x ECU has been tunable for awhile via a boot-loader (removing ECU to flash and soldering to it), but I've yet to hear of OBDII flashing for it. I hope it pans out as we're going to need flashing capability to tune for larger turbos, 100% E85, etc! "
Lets be honest guys, people are probably just buying the encryption key from someone in Germany.
@BuraQ, the ROM is really the easy part of figuring out how to flash the car. The ROM is just the data that you are manipulating. The hard part about flashing is figured out HOW to get the DME to accept the modified data...
If I were a betting man I'd bet 100% against you here. I Highly doubt BMW has let the key slip out. Extremely unlikely, if it has, then someone has really fucked up. They are most likely just looking for exploits in the rom with security this high. If the key did get out, they would probably just change the key for all cars moving forward, which is essentially all of them. "
Downpipes/dumptube materials, intercooler piping, v-band assemblies, and air filter showed up yesterday. Kinda took the night off last night, so no progress.
I still need to figure out something on the exhaust manifold studs. The factory ones are too short. I did notice that the intake manifold studs are the same size and thread pitch and are much longer. I'm considering ordering them to see if they would work. Assuming they work, they'd probably have to cut down some.
" If I charged for every flash I've helped with this summer... so far I've denied every penny (but have taken food/beer/cookies from locals). I would just feel bad charging to fix something charged for.
There's bound to be an Xzibit meme in that last bit "
