    Um, linear throttle mapping makes throttle control quite idiot proof. Sure beats modulating the stock throttle mapping which is a nightmare.

    Thanks for the answer guys. I'll try linear throttle next time to see if it helps with the launch.

    I don't suppose you did a DIY when installing the WOTBox did you? I'm about to order one. LOL

    Unfortunately not. Its not hard at all. I'll help you with any questions you may have. Its been a while though but I'm pretty sure it won't be a problem. Grab a couple posi-taps so your install is nice and clean. I didn't know about them when i wired in my wotbox.

    You'll be intercepting the main coil ignition wire and tapping into the clutch pedal, accelerator pedal and CPS wires. Also, tell the wotbox guys to preload or at least send you the special firmware for the N54 on it. You can mention me in the email to them in case they lost the file somewhere Click here to enlarge

    I don't know what they are either, haha, but I'll find them and get some. Prob won't have it for the track this Friday but hopefully the next Friday. I contacted N2MB to try and get detailed vehicle specific instructions for the 335i since they aren't posted on the website. Hopefully they have nice pretty pictures but I doubt it.

    LOL I was supposed to provide those but I did my install in a rush before hitting the track one day and never got around to it. Maybe now is the time for you to come through for the 6MT crowd and capture those if you have get the time Click here to enlarge

    I'll try to dig up the docs on it and post them up.

    Here's one of the emails I got from n2mb (John) about their changes to the wotbox software to support the N54 (there might be a later version of this too at this time):

    ======
    WOT Box Software with 335i /
    135i Crank decoder test (in place of MS3 crank)
    http://www.npcompleteperformance.com...erfaceV3.9.zip


    It is version 3.9. It installs as a program in your start menu, so it is a bit different than version 3.2.


    It might be a bit rough, but it should be closer to your crank decoder. It should say 6 cylinders. Select MS3 in the software for now to try it out.

    Here's the wiring short/sweet summary:

    WOT Box GREEN - clutch switch BLUE / BROWN pin 2 at switch or BLUE / BROWN pin 18 at the ECU X60001
    WOT Box YELLOW - rpm source - ignition coil #1 WHITE wire pin #1 or WHITE wire pin 1 at the ECU X60004
    WOT Box BLUE wire - accelerator pedal position sensor - app WHITE / YELLOW wire pin #6 or WHITE / YELLOW wire pin #7 at the ECU X60001
    WOT Box RED / BLACK pair - spliced into the ORANGE wire that feeds all 6 ignition coils. You'll need to work on finding where to splice this by tracing back the 6 power wires from the coil to a point where they join together. Or, you may be able to do the splice at Fuse F01, 30A. See page 4 of diagrams.

    For the general directions, take a look at this document:
    http://www.npcompleteperformance.com...structions.pdf

    EDIT: Attached is a PDF of the wiring diagram. You don't need this, its a bit too confusing. It really looks MUCH harder than it is.

    Did you intsall yours at the ECU? Also where is your box? It says it should be in reach of the driver but that sounds rediculous. I'll prob just put mine in the glove box and have someone hold the button while I hold in the clutch or something.

    Its in the dme box. Once wired in it just works, no buttons. I just ran a serial to usb cable from it to the glovebox for setting up the parameters, same like a jb4 or procede.

    Nope, other reasons. But the 6MT is garbage for drag racing on this platform. The gearing is total crap too.

    Btw, @dzenno check dragtimes for 135i. I did just fine with my 6MT. Click here to enlarge

    @themyst , so do you think going with 3.46 would actually help reduce ETs even when we're making high torque? I'm thinking about going with an LSD, might as well go 3.46.

    Unless you want to fry clutches prematurely, it's not that simple. We autos can launch in 2nd gear. The manual guys can't.

    I would say going with the shorter rear may make things worse.

    Just a fyi....If you haven't already, you need to get protuned. The OTS cobb maps are so conservative, the protune wakes it up. If you have a cobb tune and aren't protuned your really missing out.

    I'm definitely going for a pro tune. I'm waiting for my local COBB shop to get back to me on a quote to install my HFS-4. After that , i'll go with a pro tune.

    @dzenno , off topic but it seems with the latest 4.02 maps I'm having issues achieving target load as in I barely see 17PSI in S2+ agg. Josh@Cobb mentioned it could be due to having looser wastegates...

    Is this something that can be addressed with a pro tune? On another note, could it be due to a weak vacuum control system?

    Having enjoying NLS and LC on the subie, I'll just wait for Cobb to integrate it into the DME logic. I'll report back in a few years for updates on that Click here to enlarge~

    Both could be true. There was a local car recently that was able to barely hit 14psi and taper down when it was targeting 18psi. Turned out one or both of his wastegate solenoids were going weak. No boost leaks and all vacuum lines were fine, vacuum tanks too. Switched them out and problem fixed.

    Send me a log of your car if you want and I can glance over it to see if there is anything obvious in them. FYI, the thing to look at is how wgdc base compares to the wgdc after pid. If they're constantly off from each other where the after pid value is higher than base its possible that there is a mechanical issue behind it (e.g. boost leak, looser wastegates, wastegate solenoids, vacuum line leak(s), vacuum tank leak).

    I see, so let me take a new log with those parameters and i'll forward it to your ptf email. I'm hoping I can fix asap. I'm installing the meth kit hopefully this weekend and we'll be asking you guys for an e-tune Click here to enlarge I'm hitting the strip on the 18th so have to move fast on everything...

    You don't shift fast enough. Remove the CDV (you have no chance of shifting fast with the clutch DELAY valve in place), shift even faster and you won't have bog.

    You also need to improve your 60ft a bit, but basically you need more power (and bog elimination) for better times. Try methanol injection, it's not such a big deal.

    Most likely timing flatlines, not actualy bog.

    I already removed the CDV. I'm not saying I'm the fastest shifter but I do shift really fast. I'll try squeezing some more speed next time.
