Made a custom map with some slight changes up top - AFR .2 leaner (12.9) and 12 deg advance on about E50. Feels good and is trouble free up in cool weather. Not so much in the heat (85+). Could...

The advantage to running a BEF is so that you have more latitude for fueling and timing...neither of which are necessary unless you intend to run some percentage of E85 for more octane. So it really...

N55's don't need much compared to many other engines and more is not necessarily better.

I'm running the Burger-provided E85 MHD flash with ~E50.

Found the upper limit of the hpfp. I put a little too much E85 in the tank (~E60-70) and the car started cutting out under high boost (20psi). Ran the fuel down a few gallons and topped off with 93....

Boost safety?

This was a map 7 pull that kicked into map 4 at about 4500rpm. Am I correct in thinking that the pull looked really good aside from overboosting and triggering boost safety to step in?

I'm...

Did another log pull last night. Trying to sneak up on the limits of fuel, timing, and boost. I was in map7 (20 psi) and the JB4 kicked into map4 at about 4500 rpm. Looks like it overboosted (21.4...

You would be missing the air density. Larger turbos move air more efficiently so they don't heat the intake air as much as smaller turbos. That is why they make much more power at the same boost...

FYI, the Ohlins coilovers DO NOT FIT the AWD models (xi). Their site says 2006-2012 E92 but they mean only the RWD models. Ask me how I know.
