" Hmmm very interesting, I'm personally not very well versed in standalone systems, and have only ever heard of one person using one and it still wasn't "standalone".

I'll be honest, IMO there would be better options for engines to swap into a project car. Not saying the N54 isn't great or doesn't have potential, but until it's figured out and there are proven options out there with proven power capabilities I just don't see it as the best option. S54 would be seem like a better option to me.

However, if you were to use the N54 right now I'd be looking at MOTEC.

Oh, yeah you could also just use the OEM ECU lol. It is an extremely powerful unit and tuning seems to be going quite well with it thus far, and it's only getting better. "

" Looks amazing inside and out to me.
@singletrack I absolutely love the interior of my E92, I really don't understand why it was apparently reviewed not so well relative to its competitors, I personally love it. I like it a lot better than the F body 3 series myself. 5 series is better, but really not a fan of current 3 series at all. "

I usually slip it out so that the car launches without bogging but without burning the clutch either.

Getting started is definitely the hardest thing with this clutch. I think you're right you either go in or out if you keep going back and forth and feathering it will stall which keeps happening to me. I'm finding that I just have to rev more than I normally would then let the clutch out at a moderate pace
yup, your getting the hang of it already. don't feather! its either in or out lol its quite nice once you get used to it and i swapped out the clutch stop on mine

your going to love that clutch after leg day at the gym "

More to do with all the expectations around it (everyone is excited to see it drop some crazy numbers). But, like you said, there is always next time. Hope to see it do some damage then.

" Very interesting concept. Does not appeal to me personally, but very interesting. Imagine this would be a big seller in both China (especially) and the US.

I especially like the simplicity of the interior vs where BMW is right now with the current 3 series - too busy. E9x is perhaps too simple for most. "

" Akrapovic will clean this up and make it sound bassy and powerful. They are making the optional M exhaust right? We need to hear that.

When I swapped the front section on my S65, it sounded like a Civic at low RPM at light load with the stock rear section. Added the Akra and it sounds amazing now and still has a staccato at higher RPMs. "

ROFL! The S65 is the best sounding V8 outside Maranello my friend...fitted with a proper exhaust. "

" Has anyone ever used this engine management before? I am looking into putting an n54 into something fun and have read too many horror stories with the immobilizer and swapping over other modules, so I'm looking into the possibility of standalone tuning an n54. I'm pretty sure there is a Megasquirt unit that can handle direct injection, however if need be it might just be easier to switch over to port injection
(which could save me troubles when moving on to single turbos).

Has anyone done this before?
Am I insane?

I appreciate your guys' help, I hope to one day be a big part of this community as well! "

alex@ABRhouston replied to the thread STFT Banks 1 & 2 - What is normal ?.
" No, making it more rich will make the additive value in MS come down from high positives, and multiplicatives will lower the percentage..... positive on either one is the DME adding fuel, negative on either one is the DME removing fuel.


Zero on either value is what you are shooting for (perfect) because that means your main map is on target. the additives and multiplicatives are there technically to adjust for fuel octane differences, elevation, air leaks, restrictions and wear.


sounds like the beginning of WOT area on the map needs more fuel specifically then.


edit: looking at those logs, 20-30% positive needs to be corrected, IMO. The car is adding 20-30% more fuel over the entire fuel map to compensate. On any normal car, this would totally set codes for those being out of range, and would have done so around 12-15%.... "

" [QUOTE=Sticky;559553]Gintani is working on to get my car ready for Shift Sector this weekend.

The good news? The DCT is holding 21 psi from the YSI just fine on C16. The blower has more room in it but we're not going to push much further than that right now. Just want to get it reliable for the event and push the envelope later. I could probably ask for a couple more pounds of boost if necessary.

How much power is it making? We don't know. It's spinning the tires on the dyno. It will be somewhere in the 800's right now probably.

The car is not hooking in 2nd or 3rd gear. Alex said he needs a good coilover setup to tweak it and I told him that's fine. Whether we get the suspension sorted in time for better weight transfer is anyone's guess he will get back to me with pricing details.

I am going to go to longer gearing once I can. "
