    Is there any pictures or articles explaining our PCV though? Because I thought our PCV system was a little different due to the cyclonic seperation BS.

    Yeah that is exactly why there wasn't much interest. The having the oem flap open all the time doesn't really help anything. I imagine the Ferrari exhaust valve opening up offers a much bigger performance gain and probably sounds a lot nicer through the stock exhaust.

    Hi im new to this site. Follow the other alot. Have a 08 335i AT, running catless DP, BMS dual cone, upgrade charge pipe with tial bov, walbro 450, and jb4 iso 5 map 7 e54. Wanting to backend flash mhd and be using sprxx maps. Now what license do I buy? (Does the $100 dollar one do all?) What map would be best for me? Would like to running 100% e85, but know I wont be able to. Thank you in advance

    Agreed. Lamborghini flagship money is about the drama and flare as much as the outright performance. Once you enter that ballpark of factory power and capability (IE ludicrous), not sure how much owners really care about .x seconds. If I woke up every morning to an Aventador in my garage I could give two shits how close a Huracan is in performance.

    Meanwhile the subaru community has seen 4 new 1000awhp cars in the last month! The 1kwhp barrier is real and shit doesn't last long at those levels. The EJ has been around for fucking 30 years and they just got to 1000. 1/2in head stus/closed deck/sleeved/pinned block and a Super 99 at 50psi and tons of fuel is the winning recipe.

    Basically, you need to have an AEM UEGO or other similar external wideband, and a bung in downpipe. Then do the following: - place bank1 O2 sensor in the downpipe - place AEM UEGO in bank 1 position in the manifold - use a plug in bank 2 spot, or bank 2 sensor, but unplug it! - flash my Single Bank O2 bin - get a log of the AFR's, and watch what the AEM UEGO reads in bank 1 - swap the AEM UEGO to bank 2, repeat process. We are trying to verify the fueling each bank is seeing while in "single bank" mode.

    With a motiv kit its easy. Trying to swap around O2 sensors on a VM, FFTEC, or JerryT manifold is not fun. You'll need a stand alone WB O2 kit. AEM or Innovate or some other big brand with a 0-5V output for logging. You can either temp install it for testing or permanent for a piece of mind. You'll have to obtain the XDF from JYamona and either him or I could get you going on what and how to test

    I'm all stock, was contemplating RB's PCV valve but then he told me about his new setup coming out so I've held off.. I figure for $40 I'm just gonna order it and see if it helps any, and if not at least I'll know that is one more thing I can cross off my list.. And the smoke is like a whitish/gray.. I know it's oil because I'm burning through 1qt every 200 miles, plus I'm not losing any coolant and I have brand new injectors...

    From what I understand these turbo's are rated up to 900hp (not official). I'm not trying to get to 1,000 HP. Not even 800. Those who do try run into big headaches.Sometimes it works, and works well, sometimes not. Another vender trying to make 1,000 hp has been quiet for a long time - this shit's not easy. Good luck to them. Good luck to anyone trying to push the limits!

    What's involved in testing single bank o2? My car is going under the knife Monday but we'll be hitting the dyno next week to get the 1.03ar dialed in. Depending on what needs to be done, I can try and help you out.

    Ahhhh I shoulda recognized the blue body panels in the DIY :naughty: Hopefully it's all routed the same for E88s...I'd imagine it would be but who knows. I really want to test out 25-26PSI on the 6AT but can't do it until the second pump is up and running. STG2 LPFP gets you to about 22PSI on E85 before pressure at the rail tumbles.

    I should of said public comment of progress slowed. I know you're working on some longer lead time things now. I'd like to see coolant temp control obtained. I know you said it involves PID systems and whatnot but maybe we can find the table that control the 3 strategies. Getting coolant temps to around thermostat temps would be nice in my book. I feel like this engine bay has too much plastic to be running as hot as it does. I'll try and influence this with you. :) This is exactly how I feel. I'm hoping a few of us can step up and do some of "easier" defining and cross some of the list off! Yeah, thats a bit of a shame if people aren't willing to step up. I'm still on stock turbos, but I'm going to make the move to hybrids relatively soon. I'm gonna to try and get Tony to weld in an EGT sensor in each turbo so I can do some work with anti lag settings/ lean spool/ lean cruise. If there is anything I can help with being stock turbo I will. I'll get the newer DAMOS from Terry and check them out. Jake I thought you mentioned some of the tables have the breakpoints located elsewhere in the hex? Also does Terry have the same DAMOS's you have? If not and you have a newer/different one, would you be willing to share it? (I understand there could be factors which would prevent you from wanting to do this but I thought I would ask.)

    The DIY was done on my car if it's the one Steve put together. It follows the battery cable through the fender under the car and pokes up under the ECU box. It's just as hidden as it would be inside the car and I didn't have to fuck with any interior pieces. We used romex to fish the cables, lol.

    Incorrect. Two things: 1) Even when the PCV Valve is open in the fullest "max flow" condition, it is not a full diameter 1/4+" tube that is applying vacuum. There is still much restriction in the PCV valve even in this condition that limits flow. 2) The crankcase is not locked air tight. It has a vent hose with a flapper and a calibrated orifice. If you never have held a vent hose, I'd recommend it. When you inhale through it, watch what happens. Once you understand both of these points (along with understanding how a PCV valve operates) you can see that there is never TOO much vacuum on the crankcase; assuming you have things setup properly and with components that are functioning properly. Vacuum correlates directly with throttle plate positioning. So in other words the instant the throttle plate opens, there simultaneous reduced vacuum available in the Intake plenum. The moment the throttle plate closes, there is simultaneous increased vacuum available in the Intake plenum. This means that in pic 2 (low load "average" driving), there is moderate to low vacuum placed on the crankcase (due to a partially open throttle plate), but even that is still limited to what the PCV Valve can actually flow through it (while in its highest flowing condition) via Point 1 above; while also working in conjunction with the vent hose calibrated orifice on the other side via Point 2 above.

    Someone will need to get me up to speed on where all this love for the Colts came from? Their offense is v good, but fundamentally not a different level than last yr. Frank Gore is not going to reinvent their run game, and the OL is bottom 7 in the league. Meanwhile, they've probably gotten worse on defense with the loss of Art Jones - though I should balance that by noting we're talking about....Art Jones.....Not Bruce Smith. Their linebacker play is a disaster, their safety play is a disaster, they can't rush off the edges, can't cover the seams, and don't have bulk or power inside. If anyone can give me a compelling reason why NEP won't continue to run for 2xx yards and hang 40+ on them, i'd love to hear it. Colts are paper tigers in my mind. I must be missing something?

    A lot of the stuff requires testing before and after like the lambda, DI, fuel, spark, etc. It requires external devices like scopes, WB O2's, extra data logging equipment, etc. Obviously the first thing needed are the XDF tables and definitions but if no one is willing to step up to the plate and test it correctly then its a waste of every ones time. Its hard enough to find people that spent $10K+ going ST that don't want to buy a standalone WB (which seconds as a piece of mind) to run some tests to help move SB O2 testing along. So whats Jakes,Terry and anyone else motive to defining more when all people want is to be able to load a flash and be set. I understand money is a big motivator but practicality and usefulness is too. Sorry if this sounds harsh but its the truth.

    Thanks all. The DIY PDF routes it through the fender liner, so I was gunna take a peek after work today. We'll see how it goes; everything else is wired up so it's just this last part. Crossed the 3K mile mark yesterday as a single turbo car :awesome:

    It's important to support Jake, Martial, & their hard work. But also important not to let them become the bottleneck for the open source development. They have things they are interested in they are working on, I have things I am interested in I am working on, and others may have their own interests/needs they want to work on. The more people crunching away on this stuff the better IMHO. There is no shortage of tables in the DAMOS that still need to be defined in the XDFs.

    It hasn't slowed down. All of the big ticket items are in currently in testing, I am just waiting on results from various people. - Load by Gear: Martial and I have entered this into formal testing phase, trying to figure out why it doesn't work on AT cars currently. - Alternate O2 Sensor (Bosch ADV): Working very well on 3000GT MR's car, I am working on getting him a few more tables related to the lambda sensor specs, so he can fully calibrate it. - Single Bank O2: Waiting to hear back from Jake@Motiv on what the external UEGO sees in bank 1 and 2 when operating with single bank logic. If anyone else can run my test procedure faster, I'm all ears. - Spark Dwell: Waiting for Andy Divers to have free time to instrument test and monitor the effect changes have in this table. I have no motivation to define all the DI related stuff right now, as it is hard enough to get testing results for the relatively simple stuff. Once the above 4 are complete, I will do DI. Martial has found the CAN Flap tables and will be defining them soon. I won't say no =) This could push something higher in the priority queue. I have a few things in mind I want to get defined personally, but not sure what else others are looking for right now.
