mm those scales.
fresh and or well sealed?
looks like FTW puts something like 10-15% more load on the fuel system over E85 alone, which sounds nuts

exactly my issue
never had issues with half loading of any sort
second load works perfectly every single time, and continues to work fine until I leave for more than 10 minutes.
has been for a few days, week, 2 weeks? idk
every time i load any of the network's addresses, i have to load it a second time
so www.bimmerboost.com will come back with 'page not found' then a...
did you ever get a chance to try FTW purple?
wow a sleeved N54?
I thought @alex@ABRhouston had a look at that and came up with some issues? (water jacket? or was it just the prohibitive nature of the cost maybe?)
I'm sure if the sleeves...
there's no reason you couldn't fit what was designed there, or close enough to it... as long as you didn't give a damn about fitting the OEM filter setup... or even most of the aftermarket options hah
i think it was 8000 odd would be the upper limit but depends on power/fuel type etc?
Also curious as to the specs.
looks like standard fasteners used, not studs - reason?
yeah that's complete BS, there's plenty of room to work out optimal runner size, plenum shape/volume and TB placement to at least as good as you can get with the space available.
sorta makes me...
further down the FB page they say they can easily do so - port fuel or meth.
whether or not it's the most important thing for the N54 right now and whether or not it'll be good bang for buck.....
the guy who's car it is is on 1addicts in the thread on there, not sure if he's on here but i'd assume not.
apparently the one being built for his car should be installed and on the dyno within a...
So someone posted this on facebook
ED: just saw they sell the billet flange for DIY efforts
but really... whynotboth.jpg ;)
ED: can become such a slippery slope though haha
'oh i'll just put $6k in a single turbo better bang for buck!'... 'oh hey now headwork and camshafts can gain me...
i believe corn is superior as the cane can have particulate matter that clogs $#@!?
but sugarcane is better for the environment by miles
gah took me a while to work out the costs properly
this $#@! again -_-
on the united 'race E85' front.. just read through their facebook page yesterday.. so damn cool! guess it's cheaper to make the V8 supercar fuel in bulk.. plus the marketing...
there'd likely be gains, but mostly related to the pumping loss directly in the intake/exhaust ports.. combined with a full head-job, there'd be gains for sure..
worth it on stock frame turbos?...

There's obviously huge issues still to overcome with the tuning
I just don't understand people saying 'it's fine we have full control of the DME blah blah'... so yeah what's with everyone...
isn't break-in even on a clutched LSD pretty much something like.. do a bunch of figure 8's for like 15 minutes?.. and a maybe a little gentle driving for say 50-100 miles?

this isn't the *best* example of a perfectly running single turbo N54.
lots of issues to sort out, so i look at this as a 'what this car can do now' baseline haha
it's just like an RB/VTT2'd...
so pretty much just easier to tune, and likely no real downsides?

i've heard an S85 (sat in and revved too) with some sorta exhaust
prefer the blown S65 for whatever reason!
it did sound a bit quiet for a 600+rwhp N54 haha.
ahh dammit, them too?! haha
08-19-2014, 06:22 PM
dammit missed the flame LOL
kinda want an S65 over N54 just for that noise, i mean damn they crapped all over the N54 in that department haha
love the reaction of the 5th race though.. as soon...
what's the advantage of boost based vs load based?
i thought that load based.. while more cumbersome/complicated, was the latest/greatest method of tuning?
when did that come out? I've only heard of ATR/ATP (accesstuner race).. ATP is the one that lets you go past 18psi i thought? (p for professional)
google has nothing on 'cobb race logic'?
what's race logic? I know they make VBOX, but what do they make for this context?
