    Torgus replied to a thread E90,E91,E92,E93: 3DM Motorsports Ohlins Suspension Review in 3 Series and M3
    For some reason I forgot to upload these pictures: The car is in the garage for the winter but I can't be more serious in how this suspension transformed the car. I can actually push it hard now and not feel like it is going to kill me. Just so confidence inspiring. I know many people just want HP and to #sendit on the N54 platform but power is nothing without control. I understand not everyone will spend as much as a single turbo as they will on their suspension but even if you just do half of it and not replace all the balljoints and keep the factory or m3 rubber bushings it will still transform the car. Any questions ask and tell him I sent you.

    Yes APR is on a Porsche software tuning release spree. Among the Porsche 991.2 Carrera, 991.2 Turbo S, and 718 GTS tunes you can now add APR 718 S 9A2B4 ecu tune software for both the 982 Boxster S and Cayman S models. The 9A2B4 motor gets overshadowed by Porsche flat-6's but it is no slouch. APR can get you up to 439 horsepower and 421 lb-ft of torque on race gas which are gains of 85 horsepower and 108 lb-ft over stock respectively. As usual with APR you get all the data for various fuel grades in both crank dyno and wheel dyno format plus all the tune feature information below. Just more stellar Porsche work from APR. Product Page Product Page Product Page APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 2.5T S engine! APR’s ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to the 2.5T engine. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. APR ECU Upgrade Stages APR’s ECU Upgrades support various octanes both with or without any hardware modifications. Each stage is fully compatible with an upgraded intake, intercooler, exhaust, or other minor bolt on modifications. Unlike many platforms, no “Stage 2” or additional software tweaks are required to properly utilize a high flow race DP exhaust system as the factory system poses minimal restriction. Porsche Mode Switching Each upgrade offers a host of improvements beyond power alone. Using Porsche’s Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus modes offers varying levels of output while retaining all of the unique characteristics present in each mode. Sport and Sport plus modes give you full power and torque. Normal mode give you modest increase over stock, but focuses on economy and comfort. We’ve optimized boost, fueling, ignition, cams, and more to achieve greater power and torque in all scenarios. Features In Sport Plus mode we’ve reduced turbo lag during reapplication of the throttle by building boost while off the throttle. We have linearized the pedal maps for a more predictable throttle response curve, which works exceptionally well on the track. We’ve enabled left foot braking, and brake boosting. The speed limiter has been removed. We’ve optimized the software to better handle larger wheels without excessive torque interventions. And finally we’ve inverted the start stop functionality so the vehicle starts with this feature disabled. Safety With many customers tracking their Porsche, safety is paramount in our calibration strategy. Through the use of extreme datalogging equipment and additional sensors, thermocouples, and transducers, our engineers were able to fully optimize the ECU for advanced safety routines. This includes implementing several routines not enabled from the factory. The entire thermal management system is optimized to reduce engine bay temperature, and reduce intake air temperature, while also implementing advanced protection routines to prevent oil temperature from achieving unsafe levels. The exhaust crackles disable when temperature thresholds are crossed, and are only enabled in sport mode. Next, we help protect the engine from LSPI by preventing the engine from being lugged out in tall gears. We also protect the turbo from damaging compressor surge, and add in turboshaft overspeed protection. We’ve enabled new temperature protection routines to prevent the engine, exhaust, and other components from overheating, and have implemented temperature management strategies that are fully mindful of the platform’s limited fueling capabilities. We’ve optimized the injection strategy to not only deliver a fatter torque curve and better spool, but to reduce the chances of knock, and torque dips. This is also achieved alongside per cylinder ignition advance and fuel trimming. APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade The APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade is the first step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires no engine hardware modifications, and produces 398-439 HP with 387-421 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 59-85 HP and 76-108 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intake, cooling, or exhaust system. No "Stage 2" software is required to use a high flow Race DP exhaust system. APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, and 104 AKI fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, and 108 RON in the Rest of the World.

They will flash the ECU via the OBDII port. NOTE At the initial launch we will have limited ECU Box Code support. If you have an ECU we haven't seen, we'll need the ECU sent in for extraction and software creation. For this trouble, we'll provide the tune to you at a deep discount. Please contact us!

    N55's came out in 2011 so no m235i, m235ir, or m2's yet. So to make mass production engine for multiple platforms including SUV's factoring how many people will race or mod and the 300hp from the factory a cast crank is cheap and easy to mass produce. I guess when they moved to the F series and started to think about a racing chassis for the new generation, one of them being the 2 series, they wanted to give it a stronger set of internals. So that's why (imo) only the m235i and m2 (and x4 m40i) got the forged crank because they're derived from the m235ir and what bmw considers a car that alot of people will trash on and they want it to last. They probably thought the F30 335i (2012) demographic would mainly be daily users and thus gave it a slighly revised 2011 n55 motor until in 2014 the m235i was made when they started to give it a forged crank. But yes it could be contracted for the n55 life cycle so some n55's had to take a hit, then they made the go ahead on the m235i so they could reflect their m235ir racing line up and have a car compete against the audi s3 range of cars. Either way m235i cranks are pretty cheap on Ebay and they should be a drop in fit with new rods + pistons of course since its balanced differently. But all in all a cast crank really isn't that weak, if it is tuned properly and isn't knocking all day long then it should last, keep that torque curve a little higher in the RPM range and you should be golden. For eg look at speedtech's F30, over 600whp (and probably more now) and it is fine.

    It all depends on the prep or where the car was tested. Car mags were popular pre-internet it was the only way to read about new cars and check out specs. You were tricked into thinking the car mags were giving a fair and impartial review never knowing those opinions were bought and paid for by the highest paying manufacturer. Now days you can see real people posting real times online, real people with real reviews online. Online communities sharing information, its great. It’s real. Car mags are done.

    Less than 4 miles per hour shy of 200 in the 1/4 mile. Try to let that sink in and try to process just how fast this Viper is. So fast as a matter of fact it went flying back in September off the track but fortunately nobody was hurt. Vengeance Racing returned to the strip and they raised the bar to another level: Nth Moto held the record with an 8.250 @ 180.77 pass. This new record is just about a full second quicker. Keep in mind the Vengeance Viper is auto swapped as is the Nth Moto car. This viper set the manual record with an 8.666 @ 174.77 before being swapped to auto. Regardless what transmission is being run Vengeance Racing has the quickest and fastest Gen V Viper in the 1/4 mile.

    It is popular as a cheap hot parts kit. Turbos are junk but people just replace them.

    No, car running strong but still need TCU tune as it seems like xhp will not be releasing a flash for this dead platform
