    Terry,

    Is this a common problem with XI's on the dyno?
    I ask becuase I'm headed to this dynojet tomorrow night.
    Thx

    Sunoco Grasmere are not only clueless about BMW, they hate them even! I also go there for M1 and race gas, and I chuckle at the contempt they show for BMWs. Jerry asked me about my car and I gave him some approximate dyno figures. His reply "Oh, I didn't know a BMW could have that much power." Then he questioned the veracity of the figures. One day he told me casually that his stock S4 beat an E60 M5 quite easily on the highway. I suggested the M5 wasn't really pushing his car. "Oh no, he was struggling hard to keep up, but they are just not very fast." LOL, are you kidding me? Not the place to ask for tuning advice on our cars, but he does have race gas and a dyno. Clean shop, just a grumpy crowd with a strong bias.

So I said, "um, no thanks".

    Grasmere Sunoco is ok too. They've done some work for me long ago on other cars and I go there to get my VP M1 meth. They have a Dyno Dynamics AWD dyno BTW. I'm still thinking about throwing my tune+meth '11 on there for giggles. They do some decent work on clients cars like GT-Rs and AMGs when I pop in there from time to time for Meth or gas. Didn't seem all that interested in BMWs though when I last talked to Greg. I don't think they realize how popular the N54/N55s have become.
    If you need a good shop nearby contact ACI Dynamix. They have great prices and the quality of their work is awesome. They're in Seymour, CT which is around a 30-45 minute drive from where I live so not too bad at all. Last summer I had them do my xi downpipes, FMIC, and a full brake kit. ICS quoted me $800 for the downpipe and fmic, AfterFX in Stamford quoted me $950 for the downpipe and FMIC, and ACI Dynamix was under $800 for the downpipe, fmic, slotted rotors, hawk hps pads, ss brake lines, ATE super blue fluid, and bedding in the brakes. Let me know if you want the owners number so you can contact him. He should take care of you and give you a great price if you tell him Peter with the grey 335xi sent you.

    i'm not a dyno-jedi-master... but i am still running my winter wheels/tires. 225/45 blizzak's - i wonder if that could have added to the strangeness on the dyno

    The dynojet we use does RWD only so I don't have any first hand experience with an AWD dynojet. But seems like a tach pickup issue to me rather than an inherent dynojet issue.

    Basically you just up the base map and can tune as close to the piggy output as you want. I run 14psi non-meth and 16psi on meth, so my base mapping is around 10psi with a minimal fuel scaler added. For JP, I’d set his base higher. I then use some slight pressure bias... maybe 1/4 max of what piggy alone would use to keep my trims close to zero at higher loads. AFR is set in the flash and base timing is set aggressive... I do use CPS for conservative timing off meth and some adv on meth. These are the basics that will get you rolling.

    I will do some experiments soon in zeroing the pressure bias (using more scalar) and a more linear base throttle mapping to 100% pedal… just curious and little different approach in the nuances.

    I will have to ask you more as I get closer... anything for the flatline for at's? what if I want to run 18 psi on meth, 18.5 psi on e85 down low with timing maxed and have an aggressive 93 map? Can I have fueling maps for all of this to work in conjunction with the 'cede?

    I have an idea for flatlining, but I never had an issue to test it (i'm MT though). Theoretically you can tune for 50% E85 and be able to run 20%+ swings. LTFT do a good job at lower loads and 34% adds a lot of flexibility. But to optimize you generally want STFT to add fuel... if they are negative you can run rich... no biggy, just not as smooth.

    do you have the walbro lpfp? I can get one installed for cheap... I think this is a necessity at this point.

    Good choice!

    I just may have to swing by on Friday to have a peek.......I figure I will be replacing my stockers by end of summer and I have my eye on these.

    You probably don't want to look at my logs, everything will be much different with the cobb+procede combo. My logs are sort of pointless until things are worked out.

    that being said, my accessport is being delivered today! so new logs will come soon

    Are you going to try using COBB as the main tune and the Procede as a gauge hacker/meth controller?

    I'm going to use it in the way that JoshBoody has been using it, since he's the one helping me out. More details after it's all up and running. But yes the procede will of course control meth

    Yes, once everything is working perfectly I'll be back on the dyno again and i'll be sure to include a pump-only run. I won't be back to a dyno for a few weeks though as I'm not around the next couple weekends.

    Solid choice going with COBB, def offers a lot more flexibility going forward. Are you only going to be running pump gas (and meth), or are you planning on ever using E85?

    I tried e85 at one point and it was awesome, but it isn't accessible where i live so no i don't plan on using it unless more pumps pop up.
