    Is this setup for the N54? I see on the Aquamist website there is an option to select an N54 specific controller.

    I have one of these at the shop. It is very useful to have, but not so much a 1 time use thing. maybe find a local automotive shop that might do the service? http://www.tooltopia.com/redline-detection-95-0003b.aspx?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=paid_search_google_pla&scid=scplp6825316&gclid=CjwKEAjwmfKpBRC8tb3Mh5rs23ASJACWy1QPwI2XtW0pyyYRMzBbk96YgwLdSVTSyIQlhq1JI9lO4xoCHj7w_wcB Edit: But if its a blown Valve cover gasket. just replace that first to rule it out..

    Im helping Paulie install his vm kit and have a few question befor going further. 1)does the return get routed down from the upper left(closer to the fender) or the right(closer to the block) looking from font to back 2) how close do the screamer pipes mount in relation to the motor mount, any point of reference would be nice so We don't have to re adjust to acount for the subframe. Thanks for any help!!

    High pressure smoke test? edit: if you're single turbo, so i would probably do it from the manifold remove throttle body/Charge pipe. Plug the Cold Side FMIC and pressurize from the manifold. and plug the Vacuume nipple shut. off top of my head always helps me pinpoint boost leaks, hopefully oil leak in your case.

    Once again, I apologize. We are great at working on cars and tuning. Video taking... not so much. I will see what we can do about a video but basically it's nothing exciting. Pressing + and - on the steering wheel cruise control buttons switches between maps.

    Haha no I was talking about solutions as far as plugging the head Etc. I knew you were talking to the other member. I currently am running 1.1 bar wastegate springs now and no vacuum control on top of that. Just trying to break in the transmission and fix this issue before I put it to the test. No oil catch can because I don't have a place to really draw vacuum. I was thinking about just pulling down the downpipe and getting vacuum from exhaust myself.

    Something is odd with this. Why would pulling fuel cause lp side pressure issues. Where is port adding fuel? Lots of questions on this one now still think I'd throw a set of port injectors in and go to the old map and see what happens.

    No no! hahaha Not you. That was for vertigo, he was asking if you left an oring out, when you clearly stated it only leaked under boost. I was saying did he not read what you had posted. As far as reading through thr PCV posts, the old posts are basically the new posts, people tried the same things back then they are trying now. I 100% doubt you have a PCV issue, unless you just plain have a blown out Valve cover gasket. The stock PCV system while not the best is not going to leak enough pressure into the crankcase to case oil leaks, that kind of pressure is from, either a blown VC gasket at one of the boost ports allowing full boost to the crankcase, or bad ring seal. How much boost are you currently running? A really easy way to check this is, pull the hose going to the inlet of the OCC, and see if you have any vapors or oil coming from it after a full run. When we had a motor on its way out, we had oil being pushed out of the OCC as well as other places, but that is a direct vent from the Crankcase, if you are getting a lot of CC pressure, it will be coming out from there.

    Really I thought that was normal... As far as the crankcase pressure. If I used AD fittings I'd plug the head. Personally I think I'm going to end up with a vac pump in the AC location. But 3000gt MR has a vibrant scavenge DP made hopefully he will have results soon.

    I wasn't going to plug the head. But i do need to get pressure out of the crank case. I need my car back on the road and leaving a car unable to drive that I paid 15k for and dropped another 20k into isn't an option

    I would wait on the AD fittings and plugging the intake ports until it proves itself as a decent solution. It's reversible, but you have a lot of money potentially on the line if it went south.

    No i have not plugged my intake ports. As far as PCV goes all i have done is installed the RB check valve. I have done some reading on plugging the intake ports but have never heard of the AD PCV stuff. I just wasted a good portion of my day reading through the 28 pages of that post on e90 talking about the pcv system that was written a few years back. now im reading through this one http://www.europeanboost.com/showthread.php?62107-Single-Turbos-w-Catch-Cans-Bad-Idea/page6 Edit: i found the AD fix i believe http://www.ad-eng.net/store/p22/AD_Engineering_N54_8AN_Crankcase_Breather%2FPVC_Delete_Fitting.html and then http://www.ad-eng.net/store/p24/AD_Engineering_N54_10AN_Flapper_Delete_Vent_Fitting.html im trying to find a solution to venting it off. Thinking of doing a vibrant scavenger kit or something along those lines Everything is good to go on the timing chain tensioner Have you found a solution yet? Forgive me if I havent read it yet on the forum im still reading lol

    Impressive numbers here out of BMW's N20 2.0 liter turbocharged and direct injected four-cylinder. The baseline number is strong as the N20 is severely underrated. 245 horsepower at the wheels and 268 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on a Dynojet dynamometer. So what is the result with basic bolt ons including an intake, downpipe, and ECU flash by Jailbreak tuning? How does 290 horsepower and 345 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on 91 octane pump gas grab you? That is a gain of 77 lb-ft of torque at the wheels with basic modifications. The N20 is really moving along now that the ECU can be flashed. Hopefully we see some flash tuned turbo upgraded setups. As far as how strong the motor is we do not know as nobody has really pushed it. That said, this is more power and torque than a stock E46 M3 to put things in perspective. This 228i is going to be a hell of a track car.

    How difficult is the S2 turbo installation from a parts perspective? A DP is nbd for me and I can do the LPFP etc myself. Just wondering if I will need to budget ABR install time, or if I can get it done wrenching in my garage. Maybe a better question is, should I pay the $$ and same myself a headache? -Kyle 2011 N55 PWG

    It's just that the 335d tuning market is relatively small in the USA. Nobody is really pushing it.

    I too am interested in bigger turbos. I can't imaging it would be that hard on this car, they come stock with a k26 2871. Wouldn't a 3076 or 35xxx be an easy swap? I surprised these cars poop out so fast as a 2871 on a GTI is good for nearly 400whp. Can't see why they can't be pushed harder on the d.
