    Though this thread is about PI I'd guess that the discussion is also relevant to TBI?

    Well, I've been entertaining for a while the idea of a manual swap mostly but I cannot seem to be able to find anyone willing to even touch that job, and then the cost is completely different...

    That is strange as the car still pulls forward even when the TC is supposedly disengaged by the NIC. I've seen this many times with partially applied brakes.

    I have experienced the NIC related issues first hand from day 1 and I know it is still enabled on my AT. I will disable it just for the sake of being thorough. BTW, is the NIC completely decoupling...

    Well, I cannot imagine it has anything to do with the ZIP kit as that would be more shift pattern related. In my case the behavior I described happens with no up or down shifting. Basically when you...

    I thought about replacing the mechatronic, as well.
    The thing is that I believe that my TC is dying or something else is giving up and the effort and cost of finding the issue will be probably...

    Swapping in a newer AT

    Ive been entertaining the idea of putting in a newer AT in my 2007 335i for couple of reasons, one of them being the Alpina flash as my original AT is pre 03/2007. Does anyone here know what the...

    So I wonder if Viton was not used in the OEM parts, what was the reasoning? Hopefully it was not just cost but I wouldn't be surprised at all.

    Well I'll have to agree based on my experience. I really took my time doing the ones I mentioned to properly clean everything, seat the parts right and torque everything as it should be. Developing a...

  14. Valve cover, oil filter housing gaskets material

    So I replaced my valve cover and oil filter housing gaskets with brand new OEM ones about 25k miles ago. I noticed yesterday that I have a small amount of oil oozing from one of the oil filter...

    I get that. The thing I am driving at is - how do we know that the FETs blow first and not the other way around? It's sort of a chicken-egg scenario... If the system is properly designed the weak...

    I am curious now - what is the FET failure mode? MOSFETs are usually damaged by exceeding Vds (drain-source voltage), Vgs (gate-source voltage), or Ids (drain-source current). Avalanching can also...

    Do make sure you ground yourself properly (wrist strap) when you handle electronics as ESD can really ruin your day. A lot of people downplay ESD but there is usually about 600V standing potential on...

    Well, I do not know where they plan to get the 9HP to power the compressor. What I typed above is just an idea. Since they are still using conventional turbos I'd guess they do not recycle energy the...

    Coming to think of it, turbochargers recycle some exhaust energy at the expense of increased backpressure. Also, and correct me if I am wrong, the main reason why the turbochargers are as close as...

    I thought I'd update the thread - I fixed the AC and sure enough it turned out that the high side hose (superseded by P/N 64539239768) had developed a pinhole from rubbing against a stainless steel...

    I think what I'll end up doing is removing the filter box and intake tubing, maybe even FMIC. The more I look at it the more I wonder if it is really the hose I think it is or P/N 64509163320. I...

    High Pressure AC hose leak

    I recently found out my AC is not blowing cold air anymore, even-though the compressor turns on. After a bit of poking under the hood I found out that my high pressure hose P/N 64539239768 is...
