    indeed this is simple as well, just more capable and feature rich.

    I don't disagree, it definitely super knocked after it went hyperlean from DI cut due to misfire, but was induced by DI fuel cut causing it to go hyperlean in cyl 5 melting the piston, and I agree the DI injector probably turned into a glow plug (since no fuel running through it to cool it off) then igniting only the hyperlean PI fuel in the cylinder. all other Pistons and cylinders were fine, only this one melted due to the misfire and PI continue to spray at high load and rpm.

    Good call on the Z4 35is tune. I believe that is INA0S_IS, correct? I tried Cobb's website but didn't see a stage 0 for that ROM on there (or really anything there related to INA0S). Wasn't able to find it here in the files section or by doing a quick Google search. If there is anyone reading this that has this BIN and is kind enough to post it, I would be greatly appreciative.

    That's is knock (maybe heat related). The tips of the valve pockets are even melted. Probably turned your injector tip into a glow plug lol

    I can second the coolant tables. They work awesome. I have also set the triggers for cautions and warnings much lower than what BMW had. I forget the temps but they are way higher than i ever thought they would be. If my temps even get close i have an issue so knocking 15-20*F off it is no big deal IMO. I talked to Jake about possibly changing the AXIS to RPM vs boost or TQ to load so that we could use it to trigger a 2nd fuel pump via the connector already in the trunk vs running wires and a hobbs switch. That way you could have it trigger at exactly when you want.

    Jake, this controller cannot, if Terry's integrated PI controller references rail pressure then sure it can. I will let the cat out of the bag here to some extent. What I have done is create a plug, and play system that allows any existing PI controller SS AIC6, Terry's integrated PI controller, AEM like you guys use, Haltech like AD uses, Syvecs etc, etc to plug into, and control the HPFP using the PWM signal already output by the controller. Basically instead of controlling an injector its controlling the FCV on the HPFP. This means we pretty much have full control over a secondary HPFP via any of those means, and probably others too. Of course this requires our hardware to mount one pump on the belt to be used for all normal driving, then the secondary pump stays in stock location, and is controlled like an additional injector bringing in fuel as directed by the controller via boost, RPM, and any other input you can reference. Basically if you someone is running PI right now, they are completely set up to switch to DI only, simply buy a double barrel system, we will included the plug, and play cables to plug your HPFP directly into your existing PI controller. Get it installed, plug the cable into one of the injector plugs, use the starter map we will offer, or create your own, and away you go. We feel this changes a lot of things for a lot of people. The next question of course is, WHP ceiling for this set up. We haven't found it yet, but we will be testing it on big power in the coming weeks. So we should have an answer for that as well. With that said, for people looking at 600-650WHP, this will 110% supply all the fuel you need without Port Injection, and its downsides. DI only FTMFW....:music-rockout: Also just an FYI, we do not need testers, we do all our testing in house. Once we explore the WHP limits we will post that. We should have the PNP cables, and all that stuff ready in the week or so. I have a feeling we will need to reup, on double barrel parts. Right now we have enough parts for 3 DB kits I believe. These are available on the website, we can ship in 1-2 days, then ship the cables when they come in, so first come first serve on those.

    About the exhaust flap - we can set a state (open or closed: Static Exhaust Flap Position) till a Maximum Speed - after that, 4 tables (AT/MT and convertible roof open/closed) drive the opening of the the flap with a torque request threshold per gear per rpm.

    with an AIC6 controller (not sure about haltech but I suspect the same) all it knows is boost and RPM for when to turn on PI. It has no idea when the valves are opened or closed on the head, what the timing of the engine is, etc etc. it just has a table that is defined by boost and rpm and when your in a cell of a certain boost and rpm and it says flow a certain duty cycle of fuel out the injector, it flows that on all 6 injectors at the same time until boost and rpm go in a cell on the table that tells it not to flow. So basically, once in boost and rpm where PI is programmed to flow, it will flow all 6 injectors all the time at the defined flow duty cycles in the table cells, it doesn't care wether valves are opened or closed or valve timing or engine timing or anything so if its not spraying into an open valve its spraying on a closed valve and that fuel will enter soon as the valve opens. It's not like DI controlled by the DME that only sprays the fuel when on the needed stroke in the engine.

    Hey guys, long time coming for this update! Lots going on right now and XDF updates got pushed to the back burner a bit. Anyway, here's what got pushed today (20 new tables): Engine Cooling - Coolant Temp Threshold (enable warning) - Coolant Temp Threshold (yellow warning) - Coolant Temp Threshold (red warning) - Oil Temp Threshold (enable warning) - Oil Temp Threshold (yellow warning) - Oil Temp Threshold (red warning) - Oil Temp Threshold (upshift warning) - Temp Threshold for End of Warm-up - Ambient Temp Threshold for High Mode - Ambient Temp Threshold for High+KFT Mode - Coolant Setpoint (Normal Mode) - Coolant Setpoint (High Mode) - Coolant Setpoint (High+KFT Mode) - Radiator Fan Duty Cycle (ECT Target Diff) Exhaust Flap (credit to martial@mhd for these and reversing the logic!) - Maximum Speed for Static Exhaust Flap - Static Exhaust Flap Position - Torque Request % for Exhaust Flap Actuation (AT) - Torque Request % for Exhaust Flap Actuation (MT) - Torque Request % for Exhaust Flap Actuation (AT - Convertible) - Torque Request % for Exhaust Flap Actuation (MT - Convertible) The table names for these are pretty self explanatory, but if you run into trouble let me know. If been running High / High+KFT ambient triggers lower than stock (23 / 28 *C), and a tad lower coolant setpoints for awhile now and it works GREAT. Seriously. It even keeps oil temps a good bit lower =) As usual, you can find the latest XDF's at the public github. Enjoy!

    AWSAWS started a thread Spark plugs - gap in N54
    I was at the drag strip last weekend but the timing in 5th (DCT so probably equivalent of a little more than 4th on the auto) was not great. Mainly cylinders 2 and 5. I've probably had the current NGK plugs about 25,000 miles so I knew they'd be ready for a change soon. Well last night I gapped them down to 0.5mm (0.019685") from the 0.8mm(0.0314961") they come. It's crazy how small this change is and how it might affect the car. I had to check online again that they weren't already 0.5mm as the gap looks so small already. When gapping them down in poor light it can be quite difficult to see if the gap is exactly what you need it to be. Ethanol has a much higher activation energy than gasoline, taking more time and energy to ignite it so a good strong spark at the right time is even more important for extracting the potential power in it. It does make me wonder though how much difference being too wide on the gap by 0.05mm might make? I'll have the plugs in by the end of the week. Hopefully my timing gets back to being as good as it was in the past.

    yes, people being turned off by the price is all well and good. Im not worried about it. As im not making money from it regardless. I did this for my use. But saw people were interested in a better solution. So i posted about about and offered it by working out something with the creator. I'm going to use it because i've always had it anyway and its better than Tunerpro and Ecuflash. But if people want to use the free route, there is no issue there. But this is one of those instances where you're getting more for your dollar. But again, i also understand, that not everyone is going to fully use or understand some of the capabilities. and thats fine as well. Just offering an option.
