    The last number is gap. If the ground strap is to bent or not perfect than it could cause misfires. The only difference between the 2 plugs is the gap in which they come out of the box with

    Anyone ever confirm the N54 actually had that implemented? I was under the impression it was the crystals in the DI injectors providing cyl condition feedback. I'm thinking enough people have been running different plugs for long enough, if there were going to be a problem, we would've seen it by now. Cool stuff though. 6043 is 2 ranges colder than stock per 3000gt. Not sure what you're setup is, but if it's not single turbo with big boost, those plugs aren't reaching temp = automatic fail. Edit: sorry, misread, they are 7s. I need sleep apparently :) Not sure what would cause that if they are otherwise similar to 5992s.

    are you shure that the NGK ILZKAR7A10 P/N NGK 6043 is mostly equivalent to ILZKBR7A? My car misfires at 10PSI with it gaped at 0.6mm

    A respected Palmerston North teacher has been farewelled with a powerful haka. About 1700 boys gave the emotional haka at a service last Friday for the popular Palmerston North Boys' High teacher Dawson Tamatea. A video of the haka, posted to You Tube two days ago, has been viewed more than 70,000 times. Tamatea, 55, died in his sleep on June 20. He was a teacher at the school for about 30 years. He was farewelled by hundreds of mourners in the school's hall last Friday.

Nhưng khi họ vừa mới bắt đầu dọn dẹp th thấy hai con chuột nữa đang chen nhau ra khỏi miệng ổ. Sau một hồi cố gắng, cuối cng hai con lọt ra được. Điều lạ l sau khi ra ngoi ổ, hai đứa khng chạy đi liền m đuổi nhau ở gần lối ra, dường như con ny đang muốn cắn đui con kia. Mọi người kinh ngạc lại gần coi thử, th họ thấy một con bị m, khng thấy g cả, cn con kia đang cố gắng để cho con m cắn đui n, để n ko con m đi tẩu thot. Sau khi chứng kiến sự việc xảy ra, ai nấy đều xc động, khng ni nn lời. Tới giờ ăn, nhm người ngồi quy quần v bắt đầu bn luận về những g xảy ra giữa hai con chuột.

    One advantage of hanging around here for a long time is remembering old topics and issues that pass by. The OEM spark plugs not only deliver a spark. They also play a role in pre detecting knonk in the engine. http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?9490-One-reason-the-N54-ECU-is-so-good-at-detecting-knock-even-before-it-actually-happened SO swapping stock spark plugs for other spark plugs is not always a good idea and can introduce other issues with the engine.

    Also he was running a bias ply. When launching a manual hard like that a bias ply will have more give to it cushioning the blow somewhat which is important if you want to leave the line with your rear end coming with you.

    Then that professional driver was Shiv because he drove it himself. Say what you want but he can drive and deserves respect for his pass. People like to hate him but at least get it right when doing so.

    No, he doesn't. The reason you see 17 and 18 inch drag radials today is because these modern cars that are drag racing come with large rotors and wheels from the factory. The damn Porsche 911 wears 20 inch factory rims now. Why anyone would be against 'too much tire' or 'too much sidewall' when trying for a record ET is beyond me as that goes against the entire point of drag racing. Even all wheel drive cars like the GTR are going to slicks with a ton of sidewall to hook. 17 and 18 inch drag radials are fine for people who want to use off the shelf rim solutions (maybe even the OEM rim) or who aren't trying to set records but if you are going all out you might as well do it right.

    No offense to you Tony I was drag racing E9X's years before you ever decided to get into this market and I doubt you have ever cut a 60 foot close to what I have. Just because you hook does not mean it is enough tire. The difference between hooking and doing a 1.7x and 1.6x is 2-3/10's in the 1/4 mile. Both are hooking but clearly one is hooking better than the other. Secondly, going to a 15 inch 'slick' is not a waste with 700+ whp. Frankly, with that much power you want the extra sidewall so it is easier on the driveline. This is drag racing 101.

    It's not so much subtract, but as rpm/speed increase the numbers trend down slightly, so I'd usually just round down so it gets the gear right as the shift is a massive change in values. But strictly speaking you don't really have to subtract anything. Thing is, we can calculate all day based on gear ratios, but if you can't log the actual channels, it's just better to err on the low end of the values. Regardless, it will be much more accurate than you have now. The bmw speedo seems to read high irl so you may want to consider that in the math as well. Example- 7000rpm/60kph= 116.667 but if bmw uber accurate speedo reads high, 7000/65=107.69 and if you used the higher value, you'll see a gear change in a log. The actual gear change will lead to like 5000/65=76.9 so there's wiggle room

    5 torque limit tables need a checksum while being flashed in the DME. MHD flasher is able to do this, BB can't. so you won't be able to flash a bin with BB if one of those tables is edited. with MHD, you still need to edit those torque limit tables, so you'll be able to check if the shift bog fix works on your car.

    I believe that is Shiv. The dude can drive. 5500rpm clutch drop and it held together. Those shifts were perfect too. Respect given where it is due.

    There are two intercoolers available. An 800hp and a 1000hp. I assume would be ok if I post info and prices, but I'll let him give me the ok first. Tony@VargasTurboTech you cool with me replying to questions about the IC in this thread?
