Does it happen on map 4?

Could be a trans slippage/lack of pressure issue, maybe old fluid/seals/etc, or could be legit trans issue. Did you up the torque recently?

N55 has fewer issues than N54 but there are always a few.

Like I said, I don't think Map 5 likes the pump flash due to lower default timings.

Would not run Race with pump gas unless you also run Meth.

You probably won't break the turbos using Map 7,...

Few things:

1. When you change away and back to Map 5, Ign Avg resets so it has to re-learn its target as the average is calculated.

2. Pump flash runs lower timings than stock by default. The...

Maybe you were heat soaked from the runs. JB4 logs in F but it was the equivalent of 40-60C during the logs. If it is the stock IC that is expected at BEF boost levels. I'm not sure just an upgraded...

Log seems normal for pump gas and high ambient temperatures. I would say map 1 is the limit in these conditions, and even then there are timing corrections. That is why map 5 learned downwards. I...

I set the 12 PSI Map 6 and it helped a lot. The smaller boost range seemed to make the tune behave better and I actually have an FF below 150 for once. Still laggy but it is linear, and feels more...

Any other feedback? Was thinking I might try the Race flash with Map 5 and see if it learns down to the lowest setting (12 PSI I think?). Logs should tell me pretty quick if this is a bad idea.

Was it both intakes or only the rear one? PCV only exits to rear inlet. Not sure how it would exit the intake side unless there was some kind of compressor surge.

The N55 has decent reliability, but a $15k, 60k+ BMW does not in general. You'll prob have to spend 20-25k for a decent N55 335i.
