    The MOTIV 750 kit, MOTIV Port Injection and AEM EMS4 are finally all installed and working. I'm calling this a progress thread because progress is currently stopped due to what we are currently calling a boost leak. At 30% WGDC I make 21 psi, at 100% WGDC I make 22psi... so something is up and we suspect a leak of some sort. That being said, here are a few pictures and details to keep you entertained while I sort out the issues with Jake. HUGE thanks to Steve (Fuel-IT) for spending a few hours with me at the dyno and helping out. The fuel system is working flawlessly, HPFP and LPFP numbers looked perfect. Datazap logs below... keep in mind some of the monitors are now done via AEMTuner which has its own data logging. Everything installed and in its final place. Vibrant vacuum block, recommended by Jake. Great place for the 5 bar MAP sensor to sit, and for the various vacuum lines (FPR, Manifold, BOV). Fuel pressure regulator connected to the HPFP and secondary Stage3+ fuel pump. Wiring everything up... easy but tedious. Lots of heat shrink and soldering. Teaser dyno graph... 7 psi "stock boost" on E50 Teaser dyno graph... 22 psi "low boost" on E50 For those interested, here are the wiring notes for the AEM harness: AEM GPIO1 -> Ground on Stage3+ fuel relay AEM IGN SW -> Cig Lighter tap (or Green Plug/Orange wire/Pin #2 in DME box) AEM GPIO5 -> Wastegate solenoid (MAC) AEM Red Spare Power wire -> Wastegate solenoid (MAC) AEM Blue Crank Signal -> Tap on DME Box/Large Black Sub connector/Pin #2 9 AEM White VSS -> Tap on DME Box/Grey Sub connector/Pin #17 AEM White TPS -> Tap on DME Box/Grey Sub connector/Pin #7 AEM INJ1 -> Injector harness, injectors 1 & 6 AEM INJ2 -> Injector harness, injectors 2 & 5 AEM INJ3 -> Injector harness, injectors 3 & 4 AEM Red INJ Power -> Injector harness, all injectors power wires AEM Red/White/Black bundle -> AEM 5.2 MAP Sensor (diagram above) AEM Red Big Power wire -> Battery positive terminal (engine bay, 10mm bolt) AEM Black Ground -> Battery negative terminal (use ground under positive terminal in engine bay) AEM 5.2 bar MAP sensor wiring diagram for future reference Datazap logs: 30% WGDC http://datazap.me/u/pobudz/motiv-e50-tuning-march-4-12?log=2&data=3-13-16&zoom=717-774 100% WGDC http://datazap.me/u/pobudz/motiv-e50-tuning-march-4-22?log=0&data=3-13-16&zoom=308-402

    They posted this pic but not much else. I know we have a guy running the Pure Turbos setup. Looks like there is a good amount of N55 demand and hopefully we will see more turbo upgraded N55's:

    Sup guys! Haven't really posted much lately, nothing new yet to be honest lol. Just waiting to get our Stage 3 LPFP solution from SteveAZ along with testing the new FPR kit with the CPE/BMS Port injection so we can crank up the boost with some full e85! Anyways, I am running the usual method here e40 blend with 100% meth and 2 cm10 nozzles for fueling. We got up to the 1/4 mile track and it started to rain. We waited till about noon when they started to dry the track and we were able to get runs. I just want to say, this is my first time at the 1/4 mile track ever with this car. As well as my second time EVER being on a 1/4 mile track, so you can say I am a newb. I suck at launching and will say it proudly lol. I got the hang of it though, and I can't wait for the next track. This will also show you how bad the shift bog can mess your trap and time. It took me a bit to get it targeted, but you can clearly see how much I improved. This video will show you my first 4 slips: from Left to right All runs are done with Map 7 @ 23 psi. You can see the live gauges in the video fuel is boost, each 1/4 increment is 9lbs of boost. On the right oil temp is timing, I believe each mark is 1*. You can see my first 2 runs I had horrible shift bog, which resulted in horrible time and retarded low trap speeds (115,118) After I got the hang of shifting on point, I did much much better and did a 125 trap speed run. All in the same map LOL This just shows you how much driving a manual n54 can be a pain to get perfect. The last run was the 12.6 run I did in the video. I wanted to do more, but I got a bit tired and just went home for the day.

    Hello everyone. I recently purchased a 135i off my friend Blue24 who was looking to move onto other projects. The car made 604 to the wheels with the modified RB's and impressed the hell out of me playing around in Mexico against my notchback. After talking about what I wanted out of the car I was advised to go single top mount and VM was at the top of list to work with. Payum (fastgti69) was great to deal with and tailored the kit to fit my needs. Winter has put this on hold for a bit so I took advantage of the time to send my header out to http://ccpcoatings.com/ for some ceramic coating. Here are some pictures to get everything started.... The car The kit

    Evotech raised some eyebrows with massive torque claims from their Stage 2 S63TU ECU flash tune. Tune only they claimed 777 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. That number is now over 800 lb-ft at the wheels (1090 newton meters) with additional tuning and bolt on modifications. The extent of the modifications to this F13 M6 is unknown. A Gruppe M carbon air intake system is clearly visible and one would assume for 803 lb-ft of torque at the wheels exhaust modifications are necessary. It certainly would be nice to get a list of the full specs. Regardless, the numbers show 673 horsepower at the wheels and 1090 newton meters of torque at the wheels. How Evotech is getting such absurdly high torque figures is anyone's guess.

    Copied from one of my Busa forums. Bike belongs to the owner of BigCC Turbo in England. "I thought it was 26.6 but its a tad over 27psi of boost according to the Motec I2. My old Project Pisstake Outlaw bike on C16" 400ft/lbs?:naughty:

    Here is an interesting article about the new Sports Series from C&D (that's right Sticky, I read more than Jalopnik) http://blog.caranddriver.com/macca-lecca-hi-macca-hiney-ho-mclaren-ceo-spills-details-on-new-sports-series-models/ I am of course joking when I poke some fun at McLaren and I completely understand the economic realities that go into rationale behind making making what sounds like 5 or 6 cars (6 or 7 if you keep counting the 12-C) from the same monocoque, transmission, and engine with the same doors and similar interiors (likely). McLaren is a small company and they need to get max bang for the many bucks they spent developing the aforementioned components/powertrain/chassis. That being said, I really hope the Sports Series at least looks notably different than the Super Series models (650s, 675lt) because otherwise they run the risk of model overload in my mind.
