    No worries bud, we will gladly sell them to your customers when they give us the ring about "all those smoke free miles" they are encountering. Same with the guys running OEM turbos, ST's, etc.

    I'm sorry but I don't agree with this Tony. There are plenty of stock turbo cars that smoke along with an array of upgraded turbos, stock frame/single/twin setups, that are smoking. I believe that there is definitely an underlying issue that we are all missing causing this and although some turbos are defective straight out of the box regardless of manufacturer, the majority of people have another root cause and in my opinion, oil drainage issues due to excessive CC pressure seems to be the most viable cause as of now. I have testing my engine in almost every single way besides taking the head off including a new valve cover, compression, leakdown, dye in oil to check intake and exhaust valves and have not found a single issue so as of now, this seems to be the only possible solution.

    I have none, as I have no idea what the cause it, but he has a deeper rooted problem. If you have hundreds of people running single turbo kits, and many more hundreds running stock frame upgrades, and very few of them have smoking issues. His car has an issue somewhere in the engine, he obviously have not figured out what it is, so the PCV system helps mask it. A healthy N54, no matter what kind of turbo it as on it will NOT smoke at any time. If it is smoking, there is a reason for it. 99% of the people running our turbos run a stock PCV system with an upgraded valve, and possibly an OCC. Thousands of smoke free miles. Other vendors want to sell you "high flow" drains, and PCV systems to keep your car from smoking. Hmmmmm....:think:

    Why couldn't ProEFI get it done though? The direct injection I guess. Does ProEFI have any direct injected setups working?

    Hi everyone, wanted to see if we could get some constructive conversation going about the rev limiter on our car... I'm not sure about all of you, but I HATE soft rev limiters on any performance application. Whether you drag race, autocross, drift or even just want to do some donuts once in a while, a soft limiter that gently hits redline and then closes the throttle plate can be a huge annoyance. You lose your boost pressure and the car bogs down -- in a turn, drift or gunning it to the next cone, or away from it, this can unsettle the car, slow you down and cost you time, not to mention, it sounds terrible. I've looked around a bit to see what options we have. A friend of mine had a 135i with the now totally obsolete Procede, and he was able to set a hard limiter on his car, which tells me this can in-fact be done with tuning. Again, not trying to start a conversation about moving to Procede or anything stupid like that, this is merely an example to show it's possible and it's been done. A thread, with logs, can be seen here on this topic: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=614974 There is the BMS add-on to JB4 G5 ISO (manual only) N54 cars to activate 2-step and NLS, and that's all great, however, it's only activated when the clutch is disengaged and you're at WOT. What I'm after, though, is a hard limiter in-gear and on throttle -- more brap, brap, brap than vroom-meh-vroom. I just flashed my car with the BimmerBoost/BMS backend flash, and I believe the soft limiter could be changed and manipulated in the backend, through TunerPro or the like? Thoughts? Meanwhile, here's a boring video where you clearly hear the soft limiter at the top of 1st gear in my car, along with a great example of a hard limiter that came on my buddies e36... drool https://www.facebook.com/TheHoonigans/videos/vb.157849807569393/990073391013693/?type=2&theater Cheers, Alex

    Someone on that thread said there is only one way the belt would fit and it's the first picture. Post 13. On the side note, are the engine mount on the right same shape and size as the left? If so would it be better if both mounts are swapped with stiffer ones? The IS mounts are the same as the LCI N55 mounts. Are these confirmed to be stiffer?

    Considering this is a new vendor it's fair for them to list the buyers and when they receive the product from the point of purchase. It's more than fair.

    This is a little rough. It could be interpreted as hassling the vendor to get the products shipped out don't you think?

    No it did not solve any problems, it masked why his car is smoking, it did not fix the reason behind it. Putting a band aid over a cut that needs stitches might stop the bleeding, but you didn't fix anything.

    You have ANOTHER ISSUE. Its not the turbo, if the replacement is smoking right away. If your car is smoking, and or using oil. Something is NOT right. Do not let ANYONE tell you any different, do not let them convince you this is normal. Your car should not smoke, not on decel, not on accel, not at idle. Doing the "New" PCV set up may mask your issue, but it wont fix anything. You need to find the root problem, and address it.

    We have the PCV fix on its way and also some nice high flow drain line fittings on their way as well. With both of these in place the days of new turbos smoking should be a thing of the past, on a healthy engine anyway.
