    Gotcha. Thought I had read that somewhere and saw no long flashes when changing between LPG and BLM by gear.

    MHD copies the standard load table into the LPG table at flash time if the LPG table is empty and the logic still uses the LPG table. Once LPG has been used once, that logic is always used unless you flash back to stock.

    I just replaced bank 1 sensor 2 and STILL have the faulty heater fault on both. What other causes are there, where are the wires if I open the dme box and look for damage?

    I only used boost limit multiplier per gear in the beginning and the issue was there. I have started using a combination of both which has helped. There is no harm with using both. Martial has confirmed. BLM caps boost without scaling the throttle so after that boost has been reached, the accelerator pedal does nothing past that point. Load target scales the lower load throughout the throttle. I will be using both to get a happy medium between the two. More useable accelerator pedal travel in 1st than what BLMPG usually has will be handy when a little wheelspin does occur or any other reason to have a bit of finer control over power output in 1st. Using a little lower load target in 1st is no different to those that have that lower load target in all gears.

    Just for the record, mine were always separate, so Twisted might be on to something. I messed with LPG once or twice, but since then, they've not been set for limiting, they match my standard load target tables. When I went to BLM by gear, I zeroed out the LPG breaks/z-cells altogether and used the standard load target tables.

    Sticky, LOL looks like that's not a problem :) TwistedTuning, can you confirm there is anything specifically available in a pro-tune busa or did they just fold it in to all IA80S/IJE0S ATR releases at some point? No question I didn't purchase anything from Cobb, had 1.28 limit on IKC0S/INA0S, downloaded IJE0S ATR, raised ceiling and requesting 20psi+ targets just like that. Wondering if that's why my shifts went to hell on it (different checksums, other table limits on a pro RaceCode map?). It's more out of my own curiosity at this point, I'll never use IJE0S it again :D

    Use one or the other guys. Manual transmission car can use Boost or Load limiter. AT/DCT need to use Boost limiter. You dont need to be using both at once. Im willing to bet your issue is that while using bother your load targets in gear are not lining up with you Boost targets in gear. So its causing an issue, kinda like bumping heads.

    I have the RACE code for Cobb. but im technically not allowed to release it to anyone. As its mainly for pro-tuners. With the race code on IJE0S and I8A0S you can effectively raise the boost ceiling to 1.55bar with the race code and read 22.5psi via the DME. OP best bet is, call or email Cobb and see if they will give it to you, switch to MHD or get a custom tune with Race Code. because i don't think any pro-tuner is going to give that out due to contracts and etc with Cobb. Anyone wanting info on the new software when they re-release i'll make a post about it when it happens. i don't see many changes happening. but they have been busy on a number of things. Just not BMW related.

    I haven't messed with either limiting table much, but noticed the same issue with LPG. I made a "U" shaped load pattern, so anything in normal driving RPM range was close/same gear to gear and it alleviated that unevenness between them for just driving. I messed with BLM by gear just once so far and had smooth targets, but was overshooting. I'll get around to adjusting the base that low at some point, but this is what my target looked like: http://www.datazap.me/u/rsl/v9a-blm-test-again?log=0&data=3-7-18-29-31&zoom=50-86

    yea i hear you man. Just have to do things right and pay attention when dealing with altitude and hot weather. I respect Singles, but most of my builds where possible (at least on 6 and 8 cylinder engines and up) i always prefer a properly setup twin turbo setup. I just enjoy the broad powerband of twins. So much so, i've been tossing the idea around in my head of a Compound twin setup on the N54. :awesome: But we will see how i feel power wise after the direct port nitrous kit is one running. And thanks for the interest. look forward to doing more and more on this platform.

    Thanks for the rep! I just finally listed my AP for sale after collecting dust for almost 9 months, but am now seriously tempted to keep it, take the class and get the new ATR just to see what's up. I don't want to derail this thread, but the info is on Cobb's site regarding the change for ATR for anyone interested.

    That just depends on the rom family, doesn't it? If you have IJE0S (and maybe I8A0S?), all you need to do is raise the boost ceiling higher than 1.28 in ATR AFAIK. The only time I messed with any rom that old, I flashed IJE0S_IS to my car (originally IKC0S_IS that definitely has a hard limit of 1.28), raised the boost ceiling in IJE0S_IS to 1.45 and had higher targets. I'm on DCT though, shifts immediately became crap. Shift lasted forever and could not get rid of the 4 limiter no matter what I tried. Might have better luck on AT/MT, but it was only good for a 1 gear pull for me, so ditched it pretty quickly. http://www.datazap.me/u/rsl/ije0sis-test-4?log=0&data=4-9-22 On a side note: ATR can no longer be downloaded(!), but Cobb is releasing a new "full featured" ATR by the end of Sept. (which is already postponed from this month)...and you have to pay an estimated $100-150 to take a class and pass it before you can download it :facepalm I'm guessing it's probably something that's about 2 hours long, the bulk of which will probably be spent talking about emissions and have to sign an affidavit at the end that you've been duly advised against altering anything that changes OEM emissions and release Cobb from any liability. I could be dead wrong and it might actually offer something to learn tuning-wise, but considering some forums go so far as filter "catless", seems to be the age we live in... I'll be extremely curious what the new ATR software includes, but wholly not expecting anything new for N54s.

    The Golf R has some real competition in the United States and it is from Ford no less. Unfortunately, the Focus RS was not sold in the USA previously and but the European got to enjoy it. Well, now in the USA you can buy a Focus RS or a Golf R and it's time to see which one rules. The Focus RS already beat out the world's best hot hatches in a huge comparison test earlier this year. It is not the fastest in a straight line but it is the quickest around the track and the best all around hatchback. What the Golf R really has going for it compared to the Focus RS is the DSG gearbox. The Golf R has the smaller 2.0 liter engine compared to the Ecoboost 2.3 liter motor and it is down roughly 50 horses. Can the dual clutch trans and a bit less weight make up for this power deficit? No. The Golf R does keep up quite well but the Focus RS requires a bit more skill to extract performance from. As this is Evo no trap speeds are provided which partially defeats the purpose of a drag race. Regardless, the Focus RS is not only more powerful and the quicker car it is also the better driver's car. It's just simply the better enthusiast choice.

    Both LPG and BLMPG can be used together. The only downside of LPG with AT is a sudden increase in power when changing to the next gear when you have big load target changes between those gears. Smaller differences are not noticeable. The other advantage to using a combination of LPG and BLMPG instead of just BLMPG is better throttle control in 1st gear (BLMPG caps the boost so most of the second half of the throttle travel does nothing).

    Hey man I really appreciate it. You specifically have been there since the verrrrry begining stages of this. If I had a million bucks it would have rolled out a lot faster, also I wanted to create a FULL build when I started that was not an option so a lot of changes have been made in stride. new technologies evolving durring the build, new things changing the build, access to parts that used to be custom. This has been quite the journey and I will have your results soon. Trust me Mitch over at cp-e wants to hear those monsters spool just as bad as I do.

    Ill send you some stuff for your Domestic Boost offline. But in a nutshell they built Brad Gusler's world record Mustang (ecoboost) the previous record was like 11.4 and they came in at a 10.3 and he (they) will break into the 9s. Also the Ecoboost F150 may have some fun mods soon. And they have the world record for horsepower on the Focus ST (something like 565hp). They recently got a Focus RS to start R&D and they have a full line of fiesta stuff also that makes them quite the autocross machine.
