    The other day BoostAddict posted an article regarding Weistec's legal action against Dime Research and Development or Dime Consulting. Clearly those involved with Dime realize the walls are closing in so what are they doing in the meantime while the courts play this out? BS'ing people on forums and trying to do as much damage to Weistec as possible. It's a very simple recipe and it happens more often than you think. Simply offer someone some parts for a discount or free in exchange for posting a thread including a positive review while bashing a competitor. It happens all the time. MHP was the best at this. The owner even asked me directly to create fake accounts for him on other forums so he could do this. When a ship is sinking which in this case it is a company it takes cash to stay afloat or keep the doors open. When HPF (Horsepower Freaks) was in a similar position the owner would go on the forums and post videos of how his shop was filled with cars hoping to instill confidence in potential customers. It's easy to see through the BS though if you have enough experience or have been on the forums long enough. In this instance, it was way too easy: This 'Guilty' fellow posts a graph claiming it is a C63 M177, bashes Weistec, and says how great his tune is. That tune curve looks pretty familiar though, doesn't it? Very similar but not the exact figures yet clearly an AMG GT M178 graph and not a C63 M177 graph. If it was the exact same graph as the graph Weistec advertises with that would be too obvious even to your typical forum moron. Maybe they took another run file or just changed a correction factor? If we had the actual bevvy of dyno run files from the Dynojet software testing we could prove this. Oh, it just so happens we do: That would be runfile 88 from Weistec's ECU tuning. Exact same baseline and the exact same after the tune numbers. Because it's the exact same files. This poor schmuck is either a Dime schill or he believes that is the runfile for his car. Either way the guys reading on forums just assume this is the truth and that they can get the same results as Weistec for less money. If the software is stolen and no development work took place, yep, it's possible to offer a lower price. For those who would like to verify for themselves, here are the Dynojet run files: RunFile_002_stock.drf RunFile_088_Testing.drf As stated, it's a simple recipe. Post a graph, have a few fake accounts chime in where the administration doesn't care because it's too big to care, and you get the desired result which is herding the sheep in the direction you want them to go. Now tell me, who would you trust? The company facing litigation from multiple parties with people involved accused of stealing millions and potentially funneling money overseas that advertises software they did not even develop or BenzBoost? Hmm: It seems not everyone is so easily swayed:

    Don't say that around here or everyone will blow up your screen with how you shoulda bought a Honda if you didn't want to spend 10X to much on mods.

    This is great advice thanks guys, lots more to try out, I haven't used INPA other than successfully getting it to connect so far. (Used NCS expert for coding, that's about it).

    The "budget bottom mount" segment of our single turbo options is empty. I most likely would have bought that mani Instead of a JpWorkz kit if it were available 3 months ago. I prefer bottom mount, but pricing wins out most times for me.

    Sucks to hear. I had high hopes for your build being the 1st n55 big turbo that will be properly tuned and tested. I hope it will be finished rather sooner than later.

    Well if you found out a way to have users update with maybe some sort of coercion then maybe we would get somewhere :naughty:

    Bms has nothing to do with the build portion, Terry is only tuning once it's completed. Yes VM has good reputation hence why I went with them.

    The Competition Package for the BMW F82 M4 and BMW F80 M3 sharpens the car with new suspensions pieces, a new differential, new 20 inch wheels, and new tires. It also increases S55 engine output to 444 horsepower which is just achieved through software tuning. It is worth the $5500 asking price for the suspension, differential, and wheels alone. We all know you can get greater engine gains from aftermarket tuning for less money. Still, the car is supposed to be faster than the standard M4. Look at the results of German magazine testing from Autobild and Sport Auto: WTFBBQ? The elasticity is worse somehow. The standard car in Sport Auto testing shows an advantage to 100 kph and 200 kph. Only in the 0-200 kph sprint by Auto Bild does the M4 Competition Package show an advantage. What is going on here? If we were to guess the new larger wheels are slowing things down a bit and also making traction off the line more difficult. It is likely that warmer weather contributed to the results as well. In equal conditions with equal traction there is no way the Competition Package should be slower. We will just have to wait for numbers from US magazines to prove this.

    Happens with builds for all sorts of motors. This stuff takes time and people get excited posting prematurely.

    This is honestly what I am more interested in since we never seem to hear about these motors after the "build page" is created and no movement on it.

    Damn best of luck man...sucks to hear Payam@BMS any word on what is up? I know VM/BMS is usually good so we shouldn't just throw them under the bus without hearing what is up. That said I am reminded over and over that I will never use a shop for a build unless they are within strangling distance where I can stop in whenever is necessary.

    It's not like the N54 community needs that option anyway, right? There are so many things out there right now you can fit plenty of big turbos. I'd like to see more built motors with block reinforcement getting done.

    Honestly tho I'm getting to the point of frustration. I hate when people say one thing and do another. Don't set hard dates and time frames you can't fulfill, then ignore my calls and texts that's just bad business. A mans word is his most valuable asset, don't throw it away. I've been more than patient, my car has been in California since April. It, was supposed to be a three week turnaround to simply redo manifold and a custom exhaust and a couple minor things. I paid money to fly out to Cali, rent a car, and a place to stay for a few days. The day I get there the car has just been started to be worked on two months later to my surprise. Ok, things happen plus I'm just thinking about how it'll all be worth it in the end. I'm told yeah we're on it now it's easy 123 within a week it'll be done. Fast forward it's been 1 month exactly since i arrived in Cali, and still no updated pics, and be side stepped when I call and text. This is highly aggravating. I was told last week that the car would be done and off to tuning today, guess what it's not. I Bought the car in August 2015 sent it off to Autocotoure to do PS2 end of September. Got the car back in October drove it for a bit, did more mods PI, and Stg3 Lpfp in Februrary @ TNTRacewerks Parted car out in Februray waiting on the Stage 3 kit from VM. Kit came in April didnt fit properly, they had the car shipped to them to redo it........and now we are basically in August. So I've driven that car maybe a good 2 moths in my year of ownership. Again, I think I've been more than patient in my efforts to advance the platform and be understanding in the construction. One man can only take but so much bull**** tho. Seems like a common theme for most on this platform except for a minor few. I honestly don't know what to do at this point but its getting ridiculous. I could understand if there were complications but there aren't. it's just a matter of getting the work done. I know i just wrote a lot but quite frankly I needed to vent. I'm trying to stay respectful and hopeful.

    <shift> F10 is the DME sleep mode option. You'll see it on the main page for the N54 sub menu. once you click that itll have choices for reset all, reset DME only, etc. All you need is Reset DME only

    Just to clarify do you mean put the computer into sleep mode, like shut the lid, or is there a sleep mode option in INPA I've never seen before for the DME??

    -Your in OL fueling so yes the car will run fine its programmed to do so. -I would remove both connectors on the DME and make sure none of the pins are pushed. Sometimes after installing/removing a piggyback the connector wont mate correctly and it pushes the pin back just enough to not get a good connection. -Your e92 has a single fuse for all 4 heaters. I forgot which 1 it was but if it was blown all 4 heater faults would be present. -in INPA go to adaptations then go to adaptations 1 and clear anything that says lambda, or NOX. Then make sure you hit <shift> F6 (or7) for learn variance. Back out of that menu go to adaptations 2 then select Clear ALL. Then do a DME reset. Easiest way is while your in INPA go to sleep mode then DME reset. Shut the ign off then start the car -All else fails buy another sensor. If the heater isnt working its most likely done anyways. Damage to the outside of the housing can cause it to short and fail internally.
