Looks pretty normal to me. You don't have any timing pulls in either log that I can see so you might be able to get away with a bit more timing. Especially if you're only running 19-21psi on TD04...

Awesome! I'm no expert so take anything I say with a grain of salt. Haha. Anyways, if I were to say so myself, that map 5 log looks about as flawless as it's going to get. Seems like the HPFP held up...

Looks solid. Keep logging on occasion and pay attention to the HFPF pressure. You had a pretty severe drop to about 900-1050psi (6-7 on log) in the mid-range just past 5k rpms. You didn't lean out at...

I've always run the MHD BEF maps. Switched back and forth some between the pump map for E30 and the E85 map for slightly heavier mixes. I'm now on the Race BEF for hybrid turbos and intend to soon...

Can't speak to the BMS flash having anything like that or not.

I'm no expert, but timing looks solid all around. I don't see any timing pulls on cylinder 1 under WOT. My cylinder 1 always looks a little odd on light throttle, too. Not sure exactly what causes it...

Cool. Appreciate the input. I'll just keep my eyes on everything, and I'll feel a bit more confident with some more E85 in the tank.

I just got a bit worried cause the car feels like it's putting...

Thank you! I know it should run a little lean to help spool, but it seems like it's holding lean for half a second after boost reaches target. Not sure if that's because boost is surpassing target by...

Got another quick log today. Little bit better as I was able to take it all the way to redline. The car feels pretty good even at about 15psi tapering down to about 12-13psi.

It's now very clear...

RB Twos Plus - First Log

Even with a back-end flash, the JB4 is in full control of boost. Again, it will limit boost until the engine oil temps reach at least 160F.

A boost leak is a possibility, but get some new logs...

You need to wait for oil temps to warm up to 160F+ before logging. The engine isn't warm enough in either log and the JB4 limits boost prior to oil temps reaching 160.

It's always a good idea to...

No personal experience with upgraded turbos. However, from my 8+ years of owning an N54, researching, browsing forums, etc I would opt for RB turbos. Pure would be my next choice.

Darn - sorry to hear the issue is more complicated than one would hope. But hey, at least you got it tracked down and can move on.

Any plans for upgraded turbos or sticking OEM?

Definitely do not discount the boost solenoid either. Google "is it a boost leak or just a bad boost solenoid."

Often times, faulty boost solenoids will throw 30FF codes but that is not always the...

Boost under target does not have to do with timing; rather boost affects timing. The trend you are seeing is this: higher boost and higher load result in less ignition advance. Higher boost -->...

Depends how you view safe. 19+psi with stock inlets & outlets is putting a lot of stress on those turbos. If you're concerned about turbo longevity you may consider bumping down to a less aggressive...

I'd say go back to 100% completely stock JB4 settings.

0 out duty biases. Get rid of FUD 6_7. Change autoshift boost reduction back to 60.

The experts will know better, but it looks like your boost targets are aggressive for stock turbos and stock inlets/outlets. You're definitely targeting too much boost up top.

Cracked OFH on the N54 is not uncommon. The N54 is getting old and these engines are at the point in their lives where, in my opinion, gaskets should not be replaced by themselves.
