    Yup, thats a good problem to have. Its common when you get to these levels. Looking forward to your results!

    Small issue today while driving to grab logs.... Traction.... I have 275 toyo r888s out back and even with heat cycling them before the pulls the car was breaking loose and getting pretty sideways in 3rd at around 5k rpms (pretty alarming sensation considering the car has never done that at the top of 3rd before). I then decided to find more road for some 4th gear pulls and the slippage was pretty sketchy when the boost came on. Didn't get a clean log today while I was out. The temp was low 30s so not optimal for R comps. Its supposed to be 54 on Wednesday, perhaps it's best if I wait until then to attempt these pulls. Side note, prior to inlets in even colder temps the car never reacted like it did today. I want to get this on garths dyno asap.

    if local pickup i would take 200 right off the top. Looking to sell my wheels, i want to get Matte black Forgestar F14s (19x9.5F and 19x10 or 11 super deep concave rears) my RUFs have Continental extreme contact DWS tires on the rear and some Nexen tires on the fronts. current setup is 19x8.5F 19x9.5R PM me or text if interested located in Jacksonville NC area but am moving to South Florida Soon.

    The video I posted has a lot to do with it. It was a prime example of a car with a superior suspension. The driver, a pro driver, lost control of his car and he was not able to come out of it. He also lifted, per his own statement posted online, and the M4 kept pulling sideways. Does this mean that the BMW throttle safety was disabled ? The boost ceiling was raised which debunks the disabling throttle safety theory accusations on your side. You guys must have thought the new Android flash software did not have the ability to raise the boost ceiling which lead you to assume the other. There is no need to relax the throttle closure system in order to produce overboost as oversboost is not needed. Now we have a lame excuse the software bricked the log, you mean the event of the impact interrupted the signal connection to the OBDII port ie it got disconnected while it was logging. So a logging attempt was being made which confirms he was going WOT with a teen in his car which shows a disregard for another human being's safety, and there was no normal driving during the event. Stop trying to make this like some sort of spontaneous accident which it wasnt. - BQ

    We do a very small clip on the 9 blades if the customer requests it. This will improve flow slightly on the top end, while slowing spool slightly to help keep the larger wheels out of surge down low. The clip we do follows exactly the factory clip, just to a slightly higher degree, that someone trying to sell turbos would make a statement that all clipping is bad, and will ruin the efficiency of a wheel, shows exactly how little they actually know about turbocharging. Clipping a 12 blade MHI even to a very high 12-15 degrees to get them to flow more up top will still not match the efficiency of the Garrett profile. It is a band aid to try to get some more flow out of the 90's tech wheel design. We have extensively tested both wheels in the native N54 environment.

    Thanks for posting the pics, they show a good example of the type of wheel that can benefit from clipping and the type of wheel that has only small benefits from clipping. Looking at the pics, the wheel on the right has more curvature in the blades, and the blades are nearly flat on top. The flat area of the exducer is the most restrictive part of the wheel but it increases velocity for excellent spoolup and responsiveness. Many Mitusbishi turbine wheels are made this way. In contrast, the blades of the other two wheels are straighter and more vertical which gives them a more open exducer. This gives them higher flow for a given size wheel at the expense of spoolup. So what if the wheel on the right was clipped? It would start to resemble the fin shape of the two other wheels- i.e. more open and straighter. Clipping removes the most restrictive part of a restrictive design, improving overall flow at the expense of spoolup, although it saves a little weight off the wheel which gives back some responsiveness. But what if the other two wheels are clipped? They already have an open design, clipping would not help much , if at all.

    Buraaaaaaa Q. Cool video bro, what it has to do with anything not sure. The tune has throttle safety disabled, period. The kid lifted, and it kept pulling. I know the feeling, its a scary one even if pointed straight, and you ready for it. Sideways heading towards a telephone pole I would assume its terrifying. Its a shame your new software bricked the log or we would be able to prove it. That I am upset Ken's disregard for safety almost hurt someone close to me seems pretty normal. But you guys can defend all you want. We all know this started when I turned Ken's partnership offer down. It is what it is, as I said, its a good warning, that customers should all be given a healthy disclaimer when going to a very TQ heavy tune, when they are running something mild.

    You've seen this right, was the throttle safety disabled, blame the BMW tune ? He is no amateur driver. As long as the driver and the kid with him were safe, uninjured , thats all that matters personally to me. This can happen to the best of us open diff or with LSD. If you get careless you can lose control of the car regardless of how good of a driver you think your are.

    Exactly just walk away man. In the beginning we had grand aspirations of cheaper upgrades, but since we will never do anything half ass, as we got into it, investment price went up. The big difference here is, we have every resource available to us to make changes, and adapt as we try things that work or may not work. This guy is buying off the shelf parts, with no idea on anything turbocharger related, and is here like he is the authority. Just ignore him. He will sell 5-10 sets of these, they will all blow up, he has no budget to nor expertise to figure out why, and he will move on to his next money grab idea.

    Please stop saying you can upgrade to a "GT" Style 9 blade TD04HL turbine (GTX is a compressor style, not a turbine, your ignorance to most things turbocharger is really starting to show). They do not exist. The only 9 blade TD04HL turbine on the market is the Kamak, and they are a far cry from a very efficient Garrett GT profile.. Also did you really just say 3:1 BP is the desirable limit? Its far from desirable, we know exactly when you hit 3:1 as we have this data gathered. Here is a TD04L in your 12 blade, and our 9 blade, next to a genuine Garrett GT28R turbine. The difference is glaring, NO ONE besides us has these wheels, we spent much time, effort, and investment working with our supplier to have them made exactly as we wanted them. You will not be able to duplicate them with any off the shelf part.

    You will technically have to learn PID theory first. Not just a one site learning but multiple sites on the topic and its history from being PI and then PID. Perhaps even go to the library and get some engineering books on PID. But how does all this theory apply to our platform ? You will find its application on our platform to be a bit diverse from the theory itself. Perfect example we have over 737 post in this thread and no one has been able to effectively use it other than ourselves. The other side to all of this, many do not have the time and money to go out on the road daily and learn directly from your own car how the PID on our platform works which can cost you a lot of money in gas and tickets :D Now to answer the other half of your question. No, you do not want to touch anymore of the D factor on the COBB OTS maps. They already chopped it in half. You want to reduce the D-Factor multiplier instead. If you have wastegate oscillations throughout the entire RPM WOT then reduce the "entire" D-Factor Multipler base cells by 10% increments . The use the hotkey "M" and enter the value 0.90 to reduce by 10% save then log. Keep doing this till oscillation goes away. If the there is aoscillation in a specific RPM range then only reduce that section but try to keep the table proportionate. However, even after doing this it MAY introduce other problem, more overshoots, and this is where you need to learn PID to know where in the PID tables to make adjustemts unless you want to do it the elementary way by taking away DC which results in degredation of power.
