    Years ago I once made a fake account on E90post with the name "BMWNA Warranty Dept" and started making comments like "mods, car description and location noted" then tried to tell people their engine...

    It's absolutely not necessary to remove the waterpump. Pull the vacuum canisters out and a couple other things and it's right there. 2007 E90 anyway.

    Fantastic, good to see things keep getting pushed.... congrats!

    You aren't using TBI or port injection at startup. 100% E85 can be cranky on mostly-hot-engine restart. Steve and I think it may be related to boiling ethanol in the fuel rail. Maybe you're...

    Diesel turbos have a much easier life; the EGT's are lower, and the difference in exhaust gas volume from idle to full throttle/max boost is much less than on a gasoline engine.

    I used to live in Maine, but I've been in AZ for the past 4 years or so.

    I run E66 (measured; 3:1 E85/ACN91). Running pump gas for a daily when you have access to E85 is silly to me.

    I'm at 10k+ on VTT 2+'s, running ~25-26 psi tapered to around 22 or so at redline. No issues thus far -car is daily driven.

    I agree that talented people who know how to do stuff are invaluable, but I agree with you, maybe a little more diplomatically stated but we're all aware of the problems and short comings. We need...

    I've spent some time thinking about that. Send me a PM and lets email about a few ideas. It'll be stupid but might work.

    Oh for sure. I completely understand the end tank/flow dynamic aspect of intercooler design. I am an engineer -I love the theory, but you can't argue with test results. I do admit that I'm taking...

    If you picked up that much HP, and have that little of a pressure drop, I'd say it's pretty safe to say that end tank ideology aside, it's a pretty great FMIC. I'd like to try one out here in AZ...

    You're thinking of leakage past rings like on a piston engine. It doesn't work like that; it works from the contraction and expansion of a bellows. Leakage past the pistons in the HPFP doesn't...

    HPFP output doesn't seem to increase much after about 50 psi. I can tell you that feeding the HPFP with 145 psi+ doesn't do miracles either. :)

    Yes, it feels very smooth. I'm sure we could get more out of it with more boost but it's about where I want it to be for a DD with this many miles on it. I drive this car about 40-50 miles per day.

    Most recent update. Still Virtual Dyno, but this fall I'll put it on a real dyno, however, this is apples to apples, (same settings except for passenger weight). Done on a hot day, was...

    No one would try a method like that for a process that needs to be controlled to a high degree. Not on engine builds, not on valve builds, not on a submarine, not on an aircraft... no one. We use...

    Extrapolating nozzle flow rates based on pressure is really REALLY a function of the nozzle design. On one project I did, increasing pressure from 50 to 150 psi (3x pressure) resulted in a real...
