Yeah you'd need to work with BMS so that the JB4 presents higher boost to the DME.

I'd be getting the DME to see more boost and that'd likely fix both torque errors and to a lesser extent fuel trim issues.

I'm not sure if N55 has the 18.5psi boost limit that the N54 has....

Once flashing is possible, a richer AFR will allow a bit more timing to be possible without knock and much lower EGT too.

I personally would not be comfortable with 0 timing at any point. I'd go...

Definitely upgrade turbos. Make same power with way better power curve on less boost, more timing and lower temps.

As I mentioned in your other thread, I'd be going RB Next Gens Plus.

Sorry about the thread revival.

Your stock turbo does not look like the original one that came on the car. It has the casting of the non-genuine turbos and is missing the BorgWarner logo in the...

They would be lucky to be 32mm at the most.

S50 and 2JZ engines mentioned: 86mm bore
N54/N55: 84mm bore
B58: 82mm bore

I can't look at logs. This is a pre-sales enquiry. Surely there must be a threshold at which MAP sensor PSI = ECU PSI and strays splitting gradually from there to keep throttle mapping smooth?

At what boost threshold does the reported boost start to stray from actual boost? For example:

10psi -> 8psi
15psi -> 12psi

Cars with stock SMFW generally have a sprung centre clutch disk instead. One of the advantages to moving to a DMFW is they can use a non-sprung centre clutch disk which is lighter so better for...

50 is below target so it would already be at 100% DC. I think the #1 thing people overlook is the fuel filter. Even if it's not fully blocked, there will be more of a pressure drop compared to new if...

Neither of those turbos are a GTX3576R! One is a GTX3582R which has a too big compressor for the turbine on one end and choked with a tiny .63 turbine housing on the other end. No wonder it doesn't...

Forget engine internals for now. The number 1 priority is being able to flash tune the B48.

I don't think it's that relevant because it was an old 2.5L 1JZ non-vvt and our Australian dynos are a lot more honest. It was 330rwkw from memory and it made around 270 with the GT3076R before it....

I disagree. The GT3076R was already pushing it for compressor to turbine ratio. The GTX flows a fair bit more again (about the same as the GT3582R). That's why the GTX3576R was introduced. I...

That would not have made a difference because there are plenty out there that are fine. Mine are going strong after a year and 10,000km. They're perfect so far.

No but XHP just needs an Android device and a $20 cable. It's very simple to do unlike the Alpina flash, which is more complicated if you're not familiar with that type of stuff.
