    That's good to hear, did it give you the results you were looking for?
    I guess you changed it, because you had the same symptoms? A very slight pause while shifting?
    I think this is okay in M, but...

    Wow, i really like this, i'm not really bothered by the logo.
    For $600, it's worth the investment over the stock plastic one, which is crap and the aftermarket CNC are really too expensive for...

    Very nice, do you (or anyone else) have tried experimenting with the torque reduction settings?
    The pause between 1st and 2nd is quite present and i'm wondering if this can be reduced by messing...

    Ah that’s a good tip, thanks!
    I have the customization module, but the last time i checked, it just allowed me to alter the shifts in M.
    Maybe it’s been updated in the meantime, i’ll check it out!...

    N54: N54 6AT behavior when tuned?

    Hi everyone,

    Recently i drove a stock 135i (as opposed to my FBO 135i) and i was pretty shocked to how SMOOTH the stock one is in terms of power (obviously) and transmission operation (both 6AT)....

    That's good news!
    I know it can be pretty unsettling when you see that specific screen for a couple of minutes.
    I had it once and made the mistake of cancelling it (just me being inpatient and...

    Make sure the ignition is on (gauges on) and have a trickle charger on the battery (terminals under the hood).
    If there has been a failed flash, it can take some time to recover.
    Just start the...

    It’s good that you adjusted them as close as possible.
    But just imagine the difference is just 0.1 in HG anyway (which is 1/300 of atmospheric pressure).

    So adjusted or not, you should be totally...

    Yes i agree 100%, Rob.

    Maybe my statement was a bit vague, i actually meant vacuum after the solenoids (active on the WG’s).
    I’ve measured the vacuum between the solenoids and wastegates...
  10. N54: Shouldn't make a big difference, the vacuum on...

    Shouldn't make a big difference, the vacuum on idle is around -14-17 in HG, which equates to around 0,5 BarA.
    The -6 in HG you're pulling (0,8 BarA) is so weak, the engine actually always pulls a...

    Good point, since my only option with inlets was a custom tune!
    I think meth is also very helpful at this point ;-)

    It does prove everything for me!
    A ‘nice’ torque curve that drives like crap in the real world is something i wouldn’t want.
    I want a flat HP curve and torque that’s smooth and not peaky.

    Well, this is probably a perfect example of why numbers on paper and real life don’t always match in terms of ‘feel’.
    The MHD map was not smooth at all for me, really agressive and had boost issues,...

    I tried the V7 maps and although it's a bit smoother, it's still pretty agressive and not supersmooth..

    I tried the RFP stage 2 OTS map and although boost is higher (17.5 psi instead of 16.5 psi i...

    Going from MHD Stage 2+ 95RON to RFP Stage 2 95RON, YES i notice a huge improvement.
    MHD’s map wasn’t really smooth for me, i had boost oscillation.
    RFP’s map is smooth and has more torque in the...

    I know you’re waiting for Deans answer on this, but i read somewhere that you need M-boost to run the S3 map, S2 is fine though..

    Great and informative answer, thank you!
    Yes, here in the EU crank hp is all that matters, such BS i think (whp tells more).
    Okay, great tip about the octane and meth.

    Is that number to the crank?
    I’m looking into inlets, but was wondering what your stage 3 map offers in terms of gains?
    I don’t have E85 here, so i’m stuck with 93oct/98ron and meth.
    Is that safe...

    I just installed your RFP Stage 2 91OCT/95RON V9 for my FBO 135i (no inlets yet).
    But holy crap, this thing pulls hard!
    There's so much torque in the midrange, it's really addictive.

    Oh wow, never tried that actually!
    I read so much good stuff about the V8 maps, that i never tried the V7 ones.
    I should have tried this alot earlier, but never thought about it.

    I’ll try it and...

    Okay, i have an update guys!
    i did the walnut blast and although it made a difference in smoothness (idle, throttle response), there’s no difference in boost.
    Still boosts very agressively and...

    Yes, my thoughts exactly about the psi differential.
    Traction control was fully off, so no issues on that part.

    I already made an appointment for a walnut blast session, so will be done in 2 weeks.

    Yes, i will try that, thank you!
    I'll report back with my findings.

    It is, yes.
    I've read that the WGDC is capped with the stock map and it's derestricted on the OTS maps to ensure a quick and agressive spool.
    That's why i think it needs to be custom mapped to...
