bigdaddycane created the thread CAN Cable for Coding Injectors?.
" I am replacing a bad injector and obviously need to code the new one, but I wanted to know which CAN cable is best for this procedure and where is the best place to buy one?

If anyone local (MD, VA, DC) has one I can borrow I would definitely hook you up with beer or Chipotle (two best things in life).

Let me know "

" Lol.... And it was on bald tires too? Looks like the m6 guy underestimated a FBO tuned s85 at higher speeds. He should have raced from a dig or 25mph. "

I think you'll have that as well as some new players coming into the scene. Maybe AMS? Or companies like that. The ///M badge will attract more companies than the 335/n54 did. Just wait and see... "

Interesting race.. Owner of the M6 stated in another forum that it was 97 degrees out and he had a heavy passenger.. Non the less not bad for a V10 on stock air boxes and headers.. M6 is so beast in stock form.. I am not sure if this M is a smg or 6MT but if its smg doesnt sound like he is in the s6 setting..

of course it can - there's nothing magical about the N54 that precludes it from being modified to rev higher than 7000rpm and still make power.

fully built motor especially, when EVERYTHING is lightened+strengthened, there's nothing keeping it at 7000-7200 unless there's a software limitation present.
Did I just accidentally miss a 9000RPM N54 Show me the link please "

Even if the rev limiter would be removed, the engine would not rev much higher. But yes, also the piston speeds get high so that rev limiter should be set reasonable also for the longevity reason. "

I understand the N54 may never be a very high reving engine but there should be room to increase it past 7200rpm. Even increasing it to 8 or 8.5k, from looking at the dyno, would be a substantial increase in power.

To go on, why install VAC springs that can hit 10k rpm(claimed by vac) when there is zero valve float with the stock springs at this power level and rpm range?
8.5k would be a nice +18% on 7200rpm. However, the head does not flow enough for the stroke and it will choke before 8k. The power can increase until the flow exceeds sonic speeds when the power drops abruptly. "
