    I just took my racing license, first time on a real race track with the car. I quickly put the car in map2 (instead of 3 with a 45 additive). The power was more than enough (scary actually) but brakes need to be upgraded on our cars. After 10 laps they faded a lot (though some vw GTI's lost brakes after 4 laps Click here to enlarge

    I assume you already done something about suspension, I was very happy with my bilstein shocks and eibach springs, AND tires, the stock bridgestones are horrible in corners. I got Michelin PS-2s and love them, there was a E46 M3 there with Pilot Spot Cups on, but the weather wasn't really in his favor I doubt he got them warm enough...

    You guys support him and his business by posting there, you know that right?

    You can only change their policy over there by beating them where they can't control you. Hint, I'm the Anti-Jason and he can't stop anything that goes on here.

    I understand your advice but I just wanted to share my experience with auto crossing. Waiting forever to get a run and then picking up cones all day. To hell with that.

    Has nothing to do with Procede users. Has everything to do with a low moron to quality poster ratio. It's more of an enthusiast forum rather than a BMW rules OMG everyone hump the roundel forum.

    lol, that's why I just said "one" or "a" autoX.. it's a bit annoying, but can be fun and a good learning experience.

    Not surprising as they ("Jason") are unaccountable to rational behavior. Posting the truth will get you a lifetime ban.

    OT, I went with Helix as I was concerned about adding additional thermal load onto the AC condenser and undersized radiator. Texas is far different from Scandanavia.

    For sure. I came to look and saw some some stuff about intercooler vendors and not being able to autocross properly.

    Your EGT probes + flash tuners learning + some new info from the N54 DI engineer + E85 capable = Potentially more power from your setup!

    Thanks for keepin' it real Dzenno. Click here to enlarge

    Two things, Stinky. (Is my cat really running this forum? Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge)

    You need to add a suspension and brakes forum when you can (all engine won't fly for very long).

    When critical mass is achieved, you need to have vendors offer grouop buys or specials. Of course, it helps if the vendor can actually run a group buy as many cannot.

    Maybe call it BimmerPerformance to appeal to NA powered BMW also. "Post" is so last Century.

    Back OT. Thank you for posting actual observed data, Dzenno.

    We are not about forced induction only, we are about BMW performance. "Boosting" all aspects of your BMW, not just the engine.

    We have suspension, chassis, electronics, etc., sections they just aren't as popular. The 3 series section for example is where you would discuss 3 series suspension or brakes.

    I have big plans for a classified/marketplace system that will put all others to shame. I just need time and money.

    Great undertaking Dzenno. Looking forward to the data as I'll most probably run the RBs with COBB as well in about two months. I also got a PROcede lying around, but am not yet sure whether to use it at all (for comparison purposes).

    Just some preliminary data that I caught off the iPhone screen...this was on cobb stage 2 aggressive (not stage 2+), boost hits 14.1-14.3psi max down low, timing to about 9-10deg up top, back to back 4th gear pulls from 3k-7k rpm...

    Cruising EGT: 1000-1100F
    5 min idle EGT: 660F
    7k rpm EGT after a 4th gear pull: ramps up to 1750F

    It was interesting to watch the p3 vent gauge that shows EGT from canbus as well and confirms that the temp on the canbus is truly modeled and incorrect...at idle and cruise and throttle tipin it's actually within 50-100F...however at redline after a long 4th gear pull the p3 egt was showing ~1350F while AEM's pre-turbine EGT probes showed 1700+F, so 400F off up top for the canbus provided temp...

    I'll be hooking up the USB cable to the aem box so I can actually log these to my laptop when I get a chance

    1750F seems incredibly high to me...954C, jeez. Aluminum's melting point is 660C. Granted, we have cast iron liners that can take it but that can't be good for the turbos, especially if that kind of EGT is sustained when tracking the car.

    And this is only 14psi and on a less restrictive turbine than stock, catless downpipes, stock catback and 5C ambient temps, 94 pump gas...i can only imagine the stock turbos egt would be even higher especially those with stock downpipes..

    I wonder if the canbus egt is modeled against what stock EGTs would be...if stock is around 1300-1400F up top and we're raising temps to 1700+ it'll be interesting and actually says a lot about engine internals quality as they're not melting left/right...in any case, this was just a quick test, more detailed and in depth eventually...mostly wanted to see if my p3 canbus reading gauge was sufficient...

    I keep coming back to the recent f10 m5 vid I saw where the lead engine designer was proudly saying they can sustain exhaust gas temps of 1050C without issues in the new F10 M5 engine which is direct injected also...maybe N54 was released as testing grounds for the new m5 lol wishful thinking I know but hey, us n54 owners always tend to feel we have something special lol

    1050C was the numbers they were looking to sustain with the N54 as well. The OEM manifold and turbine housing are actually made of very good materials to meet that criterial as well. Development on the new Singles will likely need to use the same or similarly performing premium materials as well ($$$$$). It will be interesting to see if it gets much hotter as you push the turbos harder and harder. Perhaps you are in a great area for making the most power though, and won't see much change as you get more aggressive with the intake pressures.
