    Like, I said before. I want nothing to do with this anymore. I was immature to bash on AA over the 323 SC'ed. It was something we fixed, made X amount of power and I think on that forum where it was posted everyone was saying it wasn't possible or some crap that we made that much power and so on. The 18:1 afr is as soild as a fact can get, it was recored on the dyno sheet, I can see if I can pull it out of the database on the DynoJet software.

    I do not hate user Activ3, we have our diagreements like anyone out there. The kid is very smart for his age and I admire that. Yes D you are correct that post was misleading, I don't remember EXACTLY how that thread went, all I know somethings we said to one another was a WTF are we thinking. I retract what was said and appolgize. We just had some mis- understandings with certain things...I do not hate AA either. I like a lot of things they've done and some things I think they can really improve on and wouldn't mind sharing with them. I like to always help. But I feel they aren't what they used to be. I'm no expert DME tuner, but I do feel there's a lot of things that can be done to make effiecent reliable power by exploring further into it.

    Now for the recored, I do not rememeber saying with some VANOS work it made all this glorifying power, but it did help on the top where BMW almost doesnt do jack with the VANOS timing. I do remember what was done, the car was starving for fuel and it wasn't because of injector or pump, the tune was lacking fuel. The more fuel that was added, the power went up from 198 to 235-ish and so on, till it hit 283. The tuner added some VANOS timing on the top where BMW tapers off the VANOS and the car did what it did. NOW, the car does bigger injectors, the 30lbs aren't cutting it anymore(Yes, Activ3, you were def correct on the injector size, thank you for clarifying that for us)

    So enough with the bashing. Nothing was meant to cause harm.

    Yes Omar - puting Engineering behind my name doesn't mean anything, to you. But my horizions are not limited to BMW and I do not plan to try to intrude on your parade. And yes, I know Lance as well and he's not the onl AEM certified tuner down south that knows what they're doing, but he is the best in game.

    This is a good point, if it is solid fact with evidence I don't see how anyone can be upset with you for mentioning it. Also, whatever was wrong was fixed and the SC is running strong.

    Once again I do not think you or anyone else was bashing. No harm caused, not a big deal.

    It's all good man. I just had a hard time understanding how the car only made 193whp. I'm a tech at PSI in Orlando now and we've pumped out handfuls of non-m SC kits (although I haven't installed a used one yet) and they all run strong.

    As for the vanos, to my understanding, BMW didn't touch it much up top because of overlap. I figured that dialing in some overlap on a SC'd car would blow boost straight out of the exhaust port and with no wastegate to make up for lost pressure, boost would be lost...

    And Lance is definitely a great guy. I'm actually very good friends with his son. He has an IS300 that used to have a rotrex C38 on it spinning the same ~100,000rpms that my car was, and at the time our cars were neck and neck in a straight line. It was interesting to see that the larger displacement 2jz made about the same power I did.

    You are a tech at PSI? Why didn't you say anything? PSI is a vendor here.

    That's fine, but if they want you under their vendor halo that isn't a problem. I have dealt with Frank mostly, nice guy, and if he says he wants you as a representative so it shall be.

    It's all good here too dude. Yea, trust me everyone was looking at eachother when the car made that amount power. Idk what happened. But when we pulled out the fuel map it looked surprisingly similar...it was a 325i stock fuel map. Idk if someone got the car or something before us. Strange stuff. But it's fixed and we know the 323 kits can make some good power now. We're going to use some 36lb injectors now and see if we can find anything. As far as the over lap with VANOS, have yet to see an issue on the top, maybe this next dyno will show us something. I'll keep you posted.

    How do you like working at PSI? I've heard great things about the place and the facility looks awesome. Keep it up kid!

    Sounds good man. I made 347whp on the 36lb injectors before it started to lean out up top with stock fuel pressure. AFR was around 12 flat and boost was at 14.7psi with the C38-71.

    PSI is great. The owners are very cool people and it's been awesome to get familiar with all of the different options out there for BMWs. We're finishing up a G-power kit for an M6 that should make around 600whp on only 7.5psi lol If you're ever in the Orlando area come check us out!

    Yes when humans come in an try to bash AA over something like this I just think to myself when I dealt with AA they were/are to me the best aftermarket bmw tuner in the USA. Anything I got from them was always what it should have been. Not 1 company offers as many products and has been in the game this long with so many happy customers.

    No one is coming in to try to "bash" AA.

    No bashing at all. My friend just had a horrible experience and it really upset me to hear how he was treated. Everyone has their days. I'm sure it was just one of those days where they weren't thinking straight.

    Nice power, C-38? I think this 323 has a C-30 so lets see what it can do. Oh I rechecked the dyno sheet on the 323, I exagerated. It was a 15.6:1 AFR(which still sucked).

    Yea man, next time I'm in Orlando I'll swing by and check the place out. God those G Power kits are wicked. Have fun!

    Like I said, no big deal. People are a bit too sensitive, nothing wrong with relaying your experience plus you are doing so in a manner that is respectful. Active has a lot of fans and we at BimmerBoost are fans as well. Nobody is perfect and there will be bumps in the road.

    Completely valid to discuss changes in Active over the years.

    I think an 80mm pulley is as small as you can go on the C30, coming really close to 100,000rpm which is the limit that Rotrex rates it to. I was very slightly under that, and with the 80mm was already getting some belt slip up top. Some people are overspinning them with a larger crank pulley, but that's when they seem to overheat and fail. Have you considered running the M54b30 intake manifold? I'm sure you'd pick some power up with by switching that out...

    I can only imagine how much timing the ecu must have been pulling at 15.6:1 haha. And yes, the G power kits are ridiculous, but so is the price lol

    He's been talking about the intake, but he's pretty happy with his setup as is. One more trip to the dyno and a re tune with thr 36lbs and I think he's calling it a day, he said he'd be happy with 300whp.

    For the money they literally better bolt right up down to the smallest things(I hope thats the case)
