    ///Monst3r replied to a thread N54: ADV SENSORS in N54, N55, N52
    Yes and no. I ended up connecting it directly to the harness. The trims and afr's stay good until about 20psi then so the same thing again. I'm almost convinced the only way to even have a reliable track car is to go standalone be it DI/PI or PI only. This is my fourth n54 car and I've worked on countless n54 powered cars and have friends with 14k built engines and still can't get clean consistent power. :sigh:

    I validated the stock flash file using the Bimmerboost app and it said it was a valid file. Not sure what to do now. Has anyone experienced anything like this and can provide some advice? Thanks in advance.

    Yes. The idea that I'll give Zuckerberg control of my money is insane. He can go fuck himself.

    Rob at RBTurbo is likely joking around with the name but maybe 'GF' will stick for their new cast N54 turbo options. Naming aside RBTurbo quietly developed their N54 cast turbo option and yes units have already shipped. How much? Pricing is not set but expect something starting in the $3000 range. So what can BimmerBoost tell you? As you read, there are two options. In theory that means up to 700 wheel horsepower. BimmerBoost obviously wants to see graphs for both options. If you believe the turbine is the same as other options on the market, you are wrong. That all sounds interesting but again we want to see these perform. Anything else? If you want any more details or to get a set, you will need to talk to @Rob@RBTurbo or ask him questions in the thread below. Looks like another great cast turbo option is entering the market.

    Remember when Aston Martin announced their Valkyrie supercar two years ago? Well, meet its 'affordable' baby brother. 500 units of the Valhalla will be produced which is intended to be the 'entry level' mid-engine hybrid Aston Martin. That means $250k+ no doubt. So what do we know other than limited availability? It will have a carbon rub (similar to McLaren) and a twin turbo six-cylinder powerplant. Expect a mild hybrid system which will not be too heavy. Expect it by 2022. That is all we know for now. Enjoy the Concept photos.

    Finally! The new Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman GT4 street cars are officially here. They do indeed have naturally aspirated six-cylinder power but they do not share the GT3's powerplant which is a shame. Not that the 420 horsepower 4.0 liter flat-6 they are equipped with is a bad motor but it is based on the 9A2 architecture. Porsche essentially increased the displacement of the Carrera 3.0 flat-6 and dropped the turbos. The 9A2B4 the standard Cayman and Boxster come with is from this same engine family but a four-cylinder version obviously. Porsche did this to not upset GT3 owners and in a a somewhat interesting twist showed 991.2 Carrera, S, T, and GTS owners how much displacement is left on the table with their engine architecture. Porsche is revving the motor to 8k rpm and pairing it to a manual transmission only. Even if you are disappointed there is no PDK option or GT3 based engine, the GT4 models will be the best driver's cars for the money in the Porsche lineup. 06/18/2019 The 718 family welcomes new members: with the new 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4, Porsche introduces two particularly emotional and powerful top models to claim top spot in the model series. Their pure character will appeal to sports car enthusiasts who delight in unadulterated driving pleasure and appreciate a high level of agility and an almost intimate proximity to the centre of power. The perfectly balanced mid-engine concept offers all this. For the first time ever, the 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 share a technical base. This includes the newly developed four-litre six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine, together with a six-speed manual transmission. The boxer engine generates 309 kW (420 PS; fuel consumption combined 10.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 249 g/km) in both models. Whilst the GT4 represents the entry-level GT road model from Porsche, the Spyder lends itself to all kinds of curves. Both rely on highly efficient aerodynamics, a full GT chassis and powerful brakes. High-revving and highly emotional naturally aspirated engine At the heart of both models is the new four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine. The naturally aspirated engine is based on the same engine family as the turbo engines in the current 911 Carrera model series. The new high-revving engine generates 309 kW (420 PS) – 35 PS more than in the GT4 predecessor models. The third generation of the Spyder even has 45 PS more. It delivers a maximum torque of 420 newton metres at between 5,000 and 6,800 rpm. The manual transmission sports cars can both break the 300 km/h barrier: the 718 Spyder has a top speed of 301 km/h, whilst the 718 Cayman GT4 can reach 304 km/h. Both models accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds from a standing start. The correlated fuel consumption of the mid-engine sports cars is 10.9 l/100 km according to the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). The fascinating character of this naturally aspirated engine combines a modern gasoline particulate filter emission control system with the linear power delivery and the immediate response of a GT engine. It has a maximum engine speed of 8,000 revolutions. The unparalleled boxer sound remains untouched. New additions include technical highlights such as adaptive cylinder control. In part-load operation, it temporarily interrupts the injection process in one of the two cylinder banks, thus reducing fuel consumption. Piezo injectors are used for direct fuel injection for the first time ever in a high-revving engine. They split each injection process into up to five individual injections. This supports a complete – and therefore emissions-friendly – combustion process. A variable intake system with two resonance valves ensures optimum gas exchange in the cylinders. Aerodynamic efficiency: more downforce, the same drag Among the striking features of the 718 Cayman GT4 is the comprehensively improved aerodynamics concept. It produces up to 50 percent more downforce, without adversely affecting drag – proof of outstanding efficiency. The aerodynamics of both models benefit enormously from the newly designed single-chamber arch rear silencer: it creates space in the rear section for a functional diffuser, which accounts for a good 30 percent of the downforce at the rear axle in the 718 Cayman GT4. The fixed rear wing is also marked by greater efficiency: it produces around 20 percent more downforce compared with its predecessor. This corresponds to an additional downforce of twelve kilograms at 200 km/h. The front section, which is optimised in the GT style, maintains the aerodynamic balance with a large front spoiler lip and so-called air curtains. The latter calm the air flow along the front wheels. Porsche 718 Spyder: an open-top road sport car with lightweight convertible top The new 718 Spyder is a pure machine for driving pleasure with a lightweight convertible top that can cope with top speeds. It continues the history of such famous Roadsters as the Porsche 550 Spyder and the 718 RS 60 Spyder. Open or closed, it thrills with a captivating silhouette. The roof is suitable for everyday use and can be stowed away under the boot lid in just a few steps. Unlike the GT4, the 718 Spyder has a rear spoiler that comes up automatically at 120 km/h. Thanks to the functional diffuser, it is the first model in the Boxster family to generate aerodynamic downforce at the rear axle. High-performance GT chassis: optimised for best dynamics For the first time ever, the 718 Spyder benefits from the high-performance GT chassis of the 718 Cayman GT4. With its superior cornering dynamics, it provides an emotional driving experience. Its further refined lightweight spring-strut front and rear axles make use of racing technologies. The direct connection to the chassis is partially by means of ball joints. The Porsche Active Suspension Management damping system with 30 mm lower suspension lowers the centre of gravity and improves lateral dynamics potential. It is specifically designed for use on the racetrack and makes the handling characteristics of the 718 Cayman GT4 sharper. The 718 Spyder also benefits from this design. The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) operates with even greater sensitivity and precision here but can optionally also be deactivated in two steps. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with mechanical rear differential lock further enhances the longitudinal and lateral dynamics, cornering performance and driving pleasure. The GT4 also comes with the option of a Clubsport package. This includes a rear steel roll bar, a hand-held fire extinguisher and a six-point seatbelt on the driver’s side. Gripping: powerful brakes, ultra-high-performance tyres The high-performance brake system in the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 provides consistent braking that is suitable for track driving thanks to large aluminium monobloc fixed-calliper brakes. The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is also available as an option. One new feature is that the 718 Spyder now runs on ultra-high-performance (UHP) tyres specially adapted by Porsche. They are part of the overall package that makes the 718 Cayman GT4 fly on the Nürburgring “Nordschleife”: its lap time on the 20.6-kilometre classic racetrack is more than ten seconds faster than its predecessor. The new Porsche 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 are available to order now.

    Seems pretty evident that the Ebay seller has either developed a couple screen names, or has a couple buddies vouching for him to get him going. Look a bit closer and what you have are basically 2 die hard users in that thread, both new users who do basically nothing aside for post in that thread rallying around the product and seller. It is a product nonetheless that is getting delivered it seems, which is at least a step ahead of Hexon towards their end. Anyway it would be nice to see some later reviews, but going to have to wait about 1-2 years before that is going to happen with any sort of meaning (especially when it comes to warranty efforts). Several things however are extremely clear: 1) These are not Pure replicas or any other for that matter, but they are certainly using the basic repro OE China turbos as cores. They should not be advertising them as Pures, but probably figure it is some very good spoof advertising. 2) They do not have their own turbo machinery. We have seen them say they are built/balanced in the UK. We have seen them provide forms that say they are built/balanced at Turbo Supply in Joplin, MO. Maybe it is both? Maybe it is neither? Who knows. 3) We have seen them say they have yet to have a problem, yet we have had two of their customers email us stating they were having problems. One of them was on their 2nd set with a problem with less than a year had gone by, and the other was several months prior to that. Both were shipped mid'ish last year, perhaps the issues were cured? 4) They say they have sold upwards of 200 sets, yet eBay Auction history shows less than ~75 sets with no clear indication of how many of those have shipped/canceled/etc. Not that even 40 sets shipped is bad for a new seller but it is the fact that the seller seems to largely inflate sales, alongside the claim of no issues, that is troublesome on the vendor integrity front. At any rate they have also name dropped every vendor, but seem to want to ride the Pure product line first and foremost and it shows despite being highly untrue. This comes as no surprise as Pure does make a fine product but it IMO is certainly not fair for Pure to get compared to an eBay seller who doesn't even build their own turbos, is not using the same housings, has no turbo balancing equipment, etc. Anyway take it FWIW and best of luck to those who jump onboard, but definitely know that these are not what they are claimed to be and apparently on eBay you can get away with saying whatever you wish to say with no ill repercussions.

    Good morning Bud, First of all thanks a lot for your help! Where I live in Quebec Canada there is absolutely nobody who is good enough to solve my problem. I am left by myself but I like to learn and I never give up. Everything is set up with TunerPro but as you mentionned I do have an issue with VIN matching. My tranny's vin is not matching my DME. I am trying to fix it with WINKFP but having a hard time to make the app work. I will try to solve this prior to change any data with TunerPro as you mentionned. I will for sure let you know how it goes since you are pretty much the only hope I have right not. Please note that I went back to stock with MHD and my issue is gone. After going back with my BEF it came back. Thanks! Thanks! Thank you !

    Hey guys, I need some help with my WINKFP. I updated everything as mentionned in some of the videos on the internet. My issue is when opening the app, after choosing comfort mode all I have is : F1: Identify Ecu Family F2: choose Custom File F3: Update Ecu In all the video I've seen to update the vin I should click ZUSB and SERIAL but none of them are showing up in my WINKFP. Is is set right? Thank you !
