  1. N54: 6AT: Adaptation values before & after some preventative maintenance (and why it's a good idea)!

    Hi guys,

    I thought i'd post why any type of preventative maintenance is good and especially on the ZF 6HP before any form of tuning is applied.
    I decided to check my adaptation values before and...

    No problem, i think alot of people really underestimate Pro Tool.
    It's such a powerful app and really doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

  5. General: 6AT adaptation values CAN be reset with your Android phone!

    Hi everyone,

    An interesting discovery i made today, is being able to reset the transmission adaptation values of your 6AT (6HP19/21 or 26/28) with Pro Tool for Android.
    Now i'm not being...

    Thanks for the replies!
    The VAG boys here use the TTE turbo's a lot and they have good results with them.
    I just read poor things about the TTE480/550 for the N54, but they've been replaced with...

    Are these TTE turbo’s reliable?
    I know they’re widely used in Germany, but the feedback isn’t really there (also due to a language barrier)..
    I’d love these as a small upgrade to stock, since i’m...

    Okay, ive gained some knowledge today:
    - DTC single press keeps the DSC issue away a lot longer, however doesn't stop the ABS/Brake light from coming eventually.
    - Swapping the sensors left and...
  9. E82/E88: Wheel sensor working intermittently even after sensor replacement!? (ABS/DSC/Brake lights on dash)

    Hi guys,

    I'm having a pretty annoying problem that just popped up last week.
    I felt the TC light flickering intermittently sometimes accompanied with a power cut.

    Turing the TC off/half...

    Wow, this looks awesome in conjunction with the M18 valve cover!
    Such a shame i replaced my valve cover with OEM a couple of months ago, this cast option is IMHO superior in every way!

    Nobody has access to the xHP maps, because they're locked.
    The Alpina flash is easily found online and it's free, so you can try that.

    (The low price for the xHP maps is 100% worth it, though!)

    Okay, im returning here with my tail between my legs.
    Car is flashed and everything runs great!

    I contacted Martial directly and gave me the right directions.
    Turned out we needed to put the...

    I know with my N54 that there’s a very clear ignition on/off switch (gauges on or off).
    With this new model i have no clue?!
    Since it’s keyless, whenever i step in the car, it’s just on and the...

    Thanks for the response.
    No the battery isn’t flat as the car is brandnew and so is the battery.
    Also i used the same battery charger i used for my N54, which is more than adequate.

  15. B58: 2018 BMW 640i GT (B58) MHD flash failed to authenticate?

    Hi guys,

    Yesterday i tried to flash a friends car (640i GT B58) with MHD.
    The flash didnt go as planned, because it simply wouldnt start the flashing procedure.
    First i tried to read error...

    I think if you busted something mechanically in the engine, you would DEFINITELY notice it on cold start.
    These engines are really sensitive to everything on cold starts.

    Still curious if this is...

    Best to have a log.

    The LPFP and HPFP are okay if it's just cylinder 4, but i guess you already figured this out.
    Did you have ANY cold start rough running or other issues before this?...

    Faulty PCV's can generate a lot of stupid issues (including giant clouds of smoke).
    I however also had oil consumption (1L/2000km) and i thought this was relative to the smoking.

    I also went external RB PCV (with blocked head ports) and it reduced my smoking as well.
    It still smokes once in a while, but i think my turbo seals are toast..

    Keep in mind, the intake manifold vacuum is very strong in gear on decel, so oil vapour will get sucked into the intake.
    If your PCV is faulty in some way, you will get huge clouds on this occasion.

    Unhook the recirculating hoses from the diverter valves back to the intake.
    If the DV's leak, you'll hear it when they're leaking into the open air instead of back into the intake.

    Thank you for the advice.
    I have already serviced my trans (fluid and filter) and my adaptation values are far within spec.
