    ba114 replied to a thread VTT Shotgun vs. Port injection in N54
    i've been reading a thread on n54tech about a user with his single barrel. There's been some tuning issues since but nothing pointing at the shotgun being a poor solution. Unfortunately i havent seen any other posts of people who have purchased and installed a shotgun setup.

    Incase this isn't out there as I came up with it for myself, I was experiencing slow BMS flashing and then I thought of something that solved other/different issues previously. Windows: Right click desktop, Personalize, Screen Saver (Bottom Right), Change power settings, Change plan settings, Change advanced power settings, Find USB settings and disable USB selective suspend setting. This will turn that 149 minute flash into the 15 minute expected. It was added a few windows versions back. (image via google images)

    It kinda is with the N54 for now though, since the DME is immediately happy with a twin turbo control setup. I'm not saying that it'll be like that forever, of course not. singles will ultimately be easier and cheaper for any given power/response you want.

    Tony has a point here. The revised HPFPs seem very reliable and I've yet to see any significant number of failures. That said, who knows what's going to happen when it is oversped for prolonged periods however without that evidence no one can actually say it is going to be a common or a more common failure point with a DB setup. On another note Tony, people are referencing the fact that almost every time Rob posts you make a comment about how "you have no idea what Vendor X wrong because you have his posts blocked, and how much you love it that you can't see his posts etc etc etc" and then make your rebuttal. It's gets old quite quickly. We all know that you've supposedly blocked him. If you're going to block/ignore him, do just that please. Make your rebuttal, but there's no need to beat off the dead horse. :fap::deadhorse: :text-thankyouyello:

    That's because most people just roast their tires. Once you start to hook the strain goes to the next weak link in the chain and that's the axles for us. This is why everybody loves roll racing. Less stress on the drivetrain and you don't have to spend money to get it to hook.

    Ohhh I remember hearing about those awhile ago. I can't believe they're still the only solution, but at least you only need to buy them once (hopefully)

    The only ones I know that are available are the DSS, not cheap at $1000 but they hold up to just about anything we can throw at them

    Just got the car up and running, did exactly what I said I was going to do on the clutch. Switched the TOB to the high position, and changed nothing else. The clutch is now absolutely perfect, engagement is middlr to high, perfectly smooth, and light pedal. I really must have hit the lottery with this clutch or something, as I have zero complaints, and zero issues.

    This is a log from my previous dyno before the intakes http://www.datazap.me/u/tjobeid1991/435hp-dyno-log?log=0&data=1-4 Here is the logs again from this current dyno http://www.datazap.me/u/tjobeid1991/dyno?log=0&data=1-4 Here is a log the day i installed the New intakes and before i raised the boost to 20, was only targeting 18.5-19 in map 6, the car seemed to be running better i think. Not sure what changed altho in this log the turbos were not getting overworked like the new logs above. http://www.datazap.me/u/tjobeid1991/first-tft-log?log=0&data=1-3-4-8-10-19

    You tried to launch a 700WHP E9X on stock axles? :crazy: You would think someone with so much experience with drag racing would know better. I broke two of them on just hard 2-3 shifts on the street.

    all dyne's were in 4th gear. Just double checked my previous dyno log and my current logs posted above. As for the backend flash nothing has changed. All i did was increase boost to 20psi toward redline. Like terry mentioned above. I am not hitting boost target towards the end and PWM is 90% almost. May have a minor boost leak or my boost solenoids are weak.

    Sucks but typical. Get any clean runs before breaking it?

    Yeah stock axles snap like twigs even at the FBO levels once you start to hook. That's why I'm waiting till I get some axles before I go back to the track.

    yes and no. I was going to be one of the TFT inlets and VTT 2+ guys making about 650 maxing everything out. But thats just what you are doing... MAXING EVVERRRYTHING which in turn is very dangerous and the smallest flaws see dramatic problems. With some of the upcoming setups 600hp is going to be the bottom end. you can make 550 on a conservative daily driver tune low boost no timing and pump gas. or you could quickly flash it fill her with e85 and have an 800hp monster.. thats the benefit to the new tech coming out... and thats going to be AWESOME

    Sure but the stock frames will never be able to match large singles in pure power potential. It's a lost cause.

    I no lift shift without any fancy modules. Only problem I have is roasting tires. If I wasn't though, I'm sure I would have to worry about the hard parts breaking And having fresh quality tranny fluid also helps

    Manual Customer was suppose to just get some clean passes so we could get some data to use as a starting point, but he got a bit excited and just dumped the clutch. He admitted total driver error. It happens... just a small set back. The driver's comfort with driving is a very overlooked variable to a car going fast.
