    I have a day job that let's me do fairly well. So its not so much the monetary aspect that's the issue.

    I used to do calibrations for modified Mustangs. I got out if that business because it was a...

    A couple things.

    First - are these stock BMW files you've posted up here?

    Second - I haven't given too many specifics because the idea I have may actually be something I can work with an...

    Turbo kit, E-Boost 2 and before + after dynos have been ordered. Waiting on parts. :)

    Maximum PSI in NJ will be doing the work. Luke has been very easy to work with so far.

    Solved.

    When the VANOS unit was reinstalled, there was an insufficient amount of sealant put in the 'half-moon' areas, and oil was leaking out of there.

    M54: Oil Consumption

    What's everyone's oil consumption like? Ever since doing the Dr. Vanos rebuilt VANOS + viton seals, I seem to be consuming more oil then usual. Has this happened to anyone else?

    If so, what was...

    Wow I tried loading this into IDA, and it disassembled quite differently then my 330's MS45.1.

    What car is this from, and is this a US car?

    LOL. Yes, I was trying to make it somewhat accessible. ;)

    The speed of the processor (either 33 or 40MHz I think), is fast enough such that you're adding a 1-3 cycle delay in there as a result of...

    That's actually easy to explain.

    In a given function, you're taking in inputs like airflow, temp, throttle, coolant temp, etc...

    You then look up the AFR and ignition advance values at any...

    Sticky, you were definitely busy at Bimmerfest! Now I have a face to put to Luke. Talked to him on Friday. Going to have the 330 kit installed by them. I was jealous they were still in sunny, warm...

    Ah. Didn't pay close enough attention. Makes sense.

    It was quite amusing. But honestly, the half-shafts should be able to take 2 3500 RPM launches. That's total crap if they're that weak.

    That being said, I ruined a half-shaft on my Cobra on the...

    Thanks for another example of an MS45.

    No, I'm looking to trace program code, and possibly modify it if necessary.

    As it turns out, I was a dummy, and made a connection that I shouldn't have.

    So, as per NickG (thanks!), It's an MPC555 processor, which is PowerPC based.

    I got the MPC555 datasheets now, and...

    Oops. Sorry, wasn't quite getting what you meant earlier.

    So, the question was more of a 'where do I go' more then something that's M54 specific. That's why I posted it in advanced tuning. Not...

    Yes, and unfortunately very addicting. When I had my 2003 SVT Cobra Mustang, MPG varied wildly depending on how much I was pressing down on the go pedal. ;)

    Avg: 16 MPG around town.
    Best: 26 MPG...

    I've determined you just like to incorporate Nitrous into everything. ;)

    Looks pretty awesome. When do you anticipate it being back together?

    Hah. I don't want to give away too many details right now. ;)

    If I can pull off what I want to do, it will take my car from a uncommon configuration to a likely one-off configuration.

    Hmm.

    So what I read so far is that it will give me a much larger safety headroom vs pure 93, but I may quickly hit limits in other parts of the drivetrain that will negate the usefulness of it, at...
