    Move it or alter its behavior? I'm fine having it at 7000rpm, I just want it to act differently.

    Ah, interesting, though I'd still like to try to do it through the DME. Thanks for the input.

    Finally getting with the times and welded some inlets for my car, figured I share :awesome: Will probably wrap them in gold foil or something eventually. Specs : 2" dia 16g SS304, K&N RU-5111 filters Scotchbrited on left, welded but before prep on right. Weld detail : Installed : Couple notes for install on a 1M or any car with the supplemental radiator, the lines get in the way if you relocate the coolant tank like I have it. Modding the coolant level sensor mount tabs so it can go in with the plug pointing 180* the other way will let the tank tuck far enough over against the fender liner.

    What are the chances of some of these tats will end up on "Tattoo Nightmares"? How would you like the challenge of transforming some of these tats into something else?

    You certainly can move the soft limiter in tuner pro. Its limits ---> Rev limits Use the community driven XDF found here https://github.com/dmacpro91/BMW-XDFs Download the whole zip from the right side for it to work correctly.

    I don't know, I get your point, but I never read comparisons based on over/underrated figures from the big mags. They always use manufacturer numbers, I kind of feel like they have to. Their audience goes beyond the more hardcore enthusiasts. He should have just said "on paper, the caddy is more powerful" so he could stick with the stated numbers, but appease any other concerns.

    Wotbox has an actual rev limiter you can enable with the software and cable. As of now the best line of defence against limiter closures is to not hit the dme limiter. How you accomplish that is up to you.

    Well there goes my exhaust theory. There has to be a common denominator for everyone's smoking issue. Hopefully we will come up with a solution.

    lol one of these : works well, just gotta watch out for surrounding lines. The plastic is surprisingly thick. Here's the angle to get the nut driver on the turbo snout clamp : Keep in mind my coolant tank and vac canisters are relocated. For those doing stock location inlets you'll probably have to at least move the canisters to get in there.

    Here is my screen shot and i also backed up my settings to a programming template. I had to change the extension because sticky wouldn't let me upload it. Change extension to .EPT The only thing weird I noticed is that i cannot log 30 parameters. Not sure if its the cable or my ecu not sure if i have K line or DCAN or if the ecu type even matters

    cve replied to a thread Fuel pressure issue? in N54
    Yes, I have gone trough 50 lbs of walnut shells blasting and brushing out a few tablespoons of black gunk from each intake port and am on cylinder 4, tedious to get it all out. Blast first for a few minutes, then brush with different size metal brushes, then blast, finally finish with solvent to wipe clean (laquer thinner small amounts careful to apply only on metal parts). Some of this concealed gunk will not come off with 80 psi walnut blasting it is so thick on the backs of the valves behind the stem. leaning over working it for hours is a pain in the back. These need some port injection to keep clean. I also plan to change oil and frequently--not 15k miles

    So many cool projects have been in the shop! This Evo X came in for a hefty bit of upgrades including an AMS front mount intercooler, Tomei exhaust, Tomei intercooler pipe and Stoptech Brakes to name a few. Nice wheels! The finishing touch was an FFTEC custom Cobb calibration. Ernesto's 997.1 turbo received a set of H&R sway bars. Will stopped by with his super clean RWB 993. We got some more work in on Adam's EBM. Here's a little peak. Driveshaft Shop rear axles compared to the stock units. Our fabrication team is building a custom exhaust system for this AMG. Almost ready! Some more exciting things are in the works for our shop EBM. Stay tuned! Some of the exotics mingling with the R35 GTR crowd. John's old R35 GTR stopped by for an FFTEC custom flex fuel calibration Another Evo X. This one received a new ETS intake, ETS upper intercooler pipe and finished up with a custom ecu calibration. Our fabrication team is now working on another custom exhaust system. This time, it's for this amazing Porsche 991 GT3. More updates coming soon!

    Just test them all for continuity to various prongs. One or two will have continuity that the others do not. I did mine last year and also had a coil fried at the same time, some have had injector failures too.

    Curious to see how these do! Definitely come along to a Famoso day. I think I'll take our MOTIV 135i out to the next one and take another crack at being the first N54 in the 140s. :)

    I think we both agree with each other, I hear you on all of that. It did go in a juvenile direction when it didn't need to. Cheers, dude.

    As stated I have nothing against the guy. I don't know the guy. All I know is he works professionally with cars and so do I. The problem I have is him telling me to check my facts when he does not get his own facts correct. I can understand him not writing for a more informed audience, catering to a more casual fan, etc. That does not excuse mistakes and it certainly does not excuse his response. He could have easily stated, 'You know what, you're right, I should maybe do some more detailed research next time.' Instead he got defensive and dismissive. Nobody is perfect, you're right, but in this instance he is blatantly wrong based on the facts. That is what bothers me when he says to check the facts. His response was immature. Not my calling his published work into question when it is so blatantly off to a point it makes one wonder what if any research actually takes place.

    I know Jonny personally. He's a good dude, and a normal dude, like you, or me, or anyone into cars. We all fuck up from time to time. Sure, as a journalist there is a responsibility to be honest, educated and factual, but that doesn't always transcend to scouring tuner forums, and more so, it doesn't mean he will start claiming the M3 at 488.75hp after factoring in a 15% drivetrain loss from the 425whp dyno you showed him online, just because it's underrated. I do think a back to back dyno would have been beneficial to the cause, but the point of the story was not to point out which car is underrated and which isn't, it was to choose a winner based on performance data, road prowess and driving pleasure. I've been an editor and photographer for auto mags for the last six years, and let me tell you, the amount you may know about AMG motor variances and BMW compression ratios is just a teaspoon of what you need when your bread and butter is literally, everything with wheels. In fact, even on staff as an editor, at least when there were still budgets and print was beautiful, one young guys job was always the Fact Checker. When I first started out I had to run through articles with a highlighter to double and triple check every single fact. To that, though, Lieberman was spot on with his 425hp, because that's what the car is rated at. Think you enjoyed being "right" a bit too much, here, and you could have probably gone about making your claim in a more mature way. Carry on :music-rockout:

    That's what I thought. I was wondering if someone named Steve was involved with a kit based around these Hexon turbos as I still don't know who their US representation is.
