    Hmm I didn't get this notification for some reason... Sticky? And the decel fuel tables...I can see what I can dig up. What are your thoughts for them? I was under the impression there was no fuel being added on decel.

    It mostly cleared up on its own for me. The only real advice i can give is to get a hold of INPA and reset every. damn. adaptation. related. to. fuel.

    This isn't a supra, the supra is most likley ignoring the knock that is for sure happening at those power levels on 91 or 93 pump gas. Part of the reason this motor has held up so well, is the DME logic saves you over, and over, and over. Maybe if you dampen the knock tables and start gambling with the motor, sure. But then again why? Just run the proper octane for the power you are looking for

    You could have easily broke 600whp with 93oct. People don't realize, it really offers a LOT more headroom than 91oct. As for graphs, I don't have one on hand, but the 6766 breaks 600whp all day on supras. edit: 623whp @ 16psi lol... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXoNVBdxUXE - see vid description.

    Hmmmmmm, Someone want to show me a 600WHP pump gas dyno. We just made 585WHP with turbos capable of 100LB/MIN flow, and that was asking a LOT. Maybe on 93 we could have seen 600WHP. But man I would be afraid to actually take the car out and race it. I do agree, the more air flow you have available the more you can make on less octane, but 600WHP on pump gas only is really asking a lot

    I've driven EFR's, PTE, and GTX. I know it won't produce magical power #'s or straight up outspool the competition. However, I do know that it's transient response between gears is unmatched, and once past the boost threshold to full spool it is unreal (ex: part throttle down the street @3-4psi, then WOT....that is where it shines). And that makes driving on the street so much more enjoyable :)

    That is why I'm going big single.. just making a point that this platform hasn't always played nice according to "rule of thumb" with turbos.. Not trying to buzzkill but don't get hopes up for a magical turbo..

    That seems to be true for most of the N54 builds especially with stock turbos or upgraded stock frames but on subaru's with smaller engines and bigger turbos (where the torque is still rising at 8-9k rpms) the higher the gears actually do give higher peak HP numbers just because the lower gears do not have enough load to fully spool the turbo. In applications where your turbo is maxed out by redline then yes, higher gears generally just make spool look quicker and don't really increase peak HP.

    This is a good point. A REAL AT upgrade, that can allow hard launches, and hold up to big power. Now that is a game changer

    We found it will inflate TQ, and give a fatter curve, but we have seen basically no gains to peak WHP numbers in 5th over 4th. But it will make it look like the turbo spools much faster due to the load.

    600+ on stock frames, try doing that on 93oct ;) That is a huge benefit of a big single... 600+ on pump, and as far as you want to push on E85.

    Booyaazaa started a thread o2 sensors in N54
    Hello everyone, Recently my 535i hit 100k miles on the odo which the last 40k I've been FBO'd and running a E30 map or more recently the last 4 months a E45 map. The car has been trouble free besides the normal BMW repairs and I do a lot of preventative maintenance to keep it happy. In the last month I've been getting 2c31 quickly proceeded by a 2c6b and then a 2c32 will show up. I've noticed too that on my V3 display the AFR's for those banks go wildly crazy when the codes are present. Also these pre cat codes will show up randomly, driving around town or blasting down I5. Im not sure what the lifespan of the sensors are so is it time to replace the pre-cat sensors? Or is there something else going on. Let me know and any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Interested to see what it does, definitely not a "game changer" though.. EFR won't matter, proof is those guys pushing 600+ off stock frames.. Actually the turbo wars are getting lame, I'd like to see some new hotness on the trans front (Not trying to change topics, just an opinion)...

    subaru335i replied to a thread Stock manual m4 dyno in S55
    This excellent writeup was given by Todd, the President of AWE: "Issues to consider: No matter what gear set you dyno in, it is ultimately multiplied by the final drive. Considering that the 996TT final drive is 3.44:1, you would have to have a .29:1 gear set to totally eliminate the gear multiplication issue. Thus, in essence, the 1:1 ratio becomes a myth when it comes to chassis dyno testing. However, gear set selection is important nonetheless: A gear should be selected that allows a long enough pull to gather meaningful data, and produces a big enough load on the engine to produce realistic results. The lower the gear, the less load on the engine. Load is essential to mimic on street/track driving. Yet, the gear selected should not be so tall that the ending speed is far outpacing the cooling capacity of the dyno test cell. In reality, there are extremely few chassis dyno test facilities that have even barely sufficient cooling systems, and the far majority of them have cooling systems acceptable for just a 20mph dyno pull. Considering that 4th gear on the 996TT gets you north of 120mph, a subpar fan system will skew data big time. We have found that we are able to test in 4th gear with reliable data, due to the special fans that we installed. Testing in 5th would create excessive heat and unrealistic data. The bottom line is that while gear set does affect torque multiplication, it is essentially impossible to create a true 1:1 gearing effect without installing a special gear set/final drive, and even then the fan system of the dyno cell becomes the limiting factor. As long as all the cars being tested are being tested under the same circumstances, the data becomes valid when cross referencing."

    That 1:1 thing is pretty much BS anyway because it doesn't take Final Drive ratio into account. I think its just a rule of thumb so everyone doesn't do dyno pulls in top gear to inflate the numbers. Bottom line is on an inertia dyno like the dynojet the higher the load (taller gearing) the more inflated the numbers will be, at least on turbo cars.

    The venturi comes precut so can only go in at one angle. All you can control is the depth using a lock nut and the alignment of the actual pipe. Which were OK. Could be a bad location but gut feeling is there isn't enough velocity for it to work. So I'll run the BMS OCC outlet to the turbo inlet where it belongs. Will keep flappers removed and vacuum port of PCV blocked.
