    stock vanos or cobb ap vanos?

    So been messing some more with e30 maps and notice without changing anything but vanos tables I loose boost. About 2psi especially midrange. What makes Cobb vanos tables better/different?

    I wouldn't mess with the Vanos unless I really knew what I was doing.

    The difference between stock and OTS Vanos maps is in the valve overlap between the intake and exhaust valves/cam timing. Stock vanos has more overlap than OTS and this is why you see that boost difference which in tern also affects power obviously.

    Wouldn't you want a little more overlap? Maybe I'm confused.

    No. Usually with higher backpressure setups due to smaller more restrictive turbos you want less overlap. Overlap in this case represents the time during which both intake and exhaust valves are open. Picture it as a hole straight through the engine to the exhaust side..at higher rpms especially reducing overlap helps minimize exhaust gas reversion due to increased backpressure and also helps pressure differential in the intake manifold as the time during which the exhaust valve is open together with the intake valve is minimized so more boost is allowed to build due to what you can consider technically reducing an induced boost leak

    Cam timing/phasing(and it's effects on reversion and cylinder scavenging) is a VERY interesting subject if you ever get he chance to sit down and do some reading.

    Many of us have found by using different vanos profiles the car can go up and down 30-40 ft lbs in the midrange!

    dzenno is correct as usual. Click here to enlarge

    As an interesting side effect: a certain amount of overlap can be beneficial for cooling off the exhaust valves and lowering the EGTs as it allows cooler air to enter the exhaust side of the engine for a bit longer. As a consequence of that, it will improve emissions.
    From all the things I've lost,
    I miss my mind the most!

    Cool, can someone confirm if its possible to even go less overlap than the COBB vanos setup, and would that clean up timing by any chance?
