    I'd prefer Chinese subsidizing Americans. Americans subsidizing Americans adds no wealth in the US. Quite the opposite if it reduces Chinese subsidizing Americans.

    Hey Guys, I need a little help in figuring out what is wrong with my car. The logs look clean, car doesn't pull timing and goes like shit off a stick once it spools. Problem: The car shakes and stutters as it builds boost, it is especially apparent at 3500-4000rpm. After the stutter and as soon as it builds boost it takes off and pulls smoothly all the way to redline. I have tried doing 20psi pulls and now at wastegate pressure it still does it. Car: 2007 BMW 335i AT FFTEC Bottom mount 6466 stage 2 fuel it, intercooler and other bits and pieces. Tuning: Boost box MHD tune. Logs are attached let me know what you think. One log is on high boost others are wastegate. Thank You for the help :)

    People should modify it to vent properly. And don't be surprised if they have oil consumption issues. I feel sorry in advance for those throwing parts at it and replacing everything before they realise their shiny billet piece is the likely culprit. I would suggest studying crankcase ventilation to actually make power reliably and not going off hearsay such as "old cars use to use it for emission etc etc". Emissions? What about exhaust as a vacuum source, that doesn't meet emissions, nowhere near it. Anyway, good starting point material: http://www.106rallye.co.uk/members/dynofiend/breathersystems.pdf Study the N54 system and even N55, understand it's factory compromises. Fix and improve them with proper R&D (plastic printing prototypes maybe?). Any tuner, fabricator, that recommends VTA instantly loses cred to me personally. I don't care if you made 800hp VTA'ing or made a pass with it successfully. It doesn't prove anything to me except what you're potentially giving up. Then again, the car modification scene here, europe, UK is very different. Not a jab, just my experience over time with exposure to the internet. Horses for courses (oh the irony when mentioning courses :P )

    If they are missing how do they know that? The fact they are missing is such a joke. Drain the swamp doesn't even begin to address what really needs to happen I feel. Shit like this makes me so pissed. We all know they were not lost. But will anything happen from it? Probably not. Makes voting seem pointless...what is worse is we all see it but it doesn't feel like any of us can change it regardless of votes.

    You can pull the 0da file into winols and start to look for maps yourself, Slow and tedious but it will give you an idea. There are 8,000 maps and constants in the ZF 6HP. You can use tool32 to pull out the "scalors" from one of the related *.prg files for the TCU. This will help you find the conversions used. For instance the ZF hp uses Rom x 32 for engine RPM when the data was 8bit or Rom x 6 -204 for torque. The maps I found did not have the typical markers preceding them so nothing like a 00 04 00 08 to mark out a 4 x 8 map. I can tell you that the key maps will probably have Engine RPM, Engine Torque, Turbine RPM/Input and output shaft. speed. I'll see if I can did up or write a tool to read out the TCU. I tried the DR Gini program a few nights back and it would not read out my TCU or DME. Managed the Kombi just fine. I'll try to contribute but my personal time is really limited right now.

    Some guys mostly in the diesel crowd made a Windows tool to read out the rom. Not long after, they completely closed up development/public discussion and went commercial with it.

    Twins breaking the 1000 crank horsepower range on the N54 platform would be huge news. That level of power from twins was promised from a handful of vendors for years but nothing came to fruition at least not until now. Will this upgrade from MMP be the first to do it? Perhaps. There is not yet any proof of that level of output from this upgrade but it certainly looks like if any twin turbo N54 upgrade will do it the MMP1K is the best bet: So who is going to push these to the limit and find out? $3499.99: https://mmp-e.com/collections/products/products/bmw-n54-mmp1k-turbo-kit-335i-135i-535i-z4-35i-235i-1m-335is

    This is 100% correct. Unfortunately this is way way way too late. No one is left building modules in America. Everyone has been put out of business. If this happened 5-6 years ago maybe it would have mattered. Suniva is bankrupt and tried to hold the Chinese investors hostage. SolarWorld America is too basically. Those are the only 2 left(other than my friends at itek). 4 years of tariff is not long enough for anyone to start building their own modules here in any quantity worth talking about. All this does not is increase the cost of solar in America. Or, in my business, it means we sell less because less gets installed in the ground. China subsidized the F out of the companies and put everyone else out of business. Everyone knew this was happening. There was a tariff before. They have already started raising their prices. You could buy tier 1 modules for around 30 cents a watt. We are at around 50+ cents a watt now and that is without the tariff. 30% on 50c/w = 65 cents/watt. So basically the cost is double what it was a year or so ago. As the module makes up 40% of the system cost(including margin/profit) having it double in cost in a year or two's time and staying that way for 4 is not a great thing for the industry. This affects all modules brought into the states btw, not just China. I'm honestly amazed a president had an affect on my life. As a middle class white male their actions usually don't mean squat for me directly. At least if the tariff money went back into the solar industry it wouldn't be so bad. Instead it goes into the federal coffers and disappears.
