Lets hope its not too much longer. Bms has a 435i now and hopefully it has the electronic solenoid.

Im holding off on any other boltons (Charge pipe, intake, intercooler) until this boost solenoid is figured out.

My M135i works fine with the electronic solenoid, got +50bhp and +73ftlb, so not sure why it seems to be an issue with other models.

Why wait? Go for it. As soon as it gets warmer out again I will be installing ********* and intake on my car even if an answer for electronic solenoids isn't out yet.
Even without that connection and making less boost there is a definite improvement over stock. But it's dissappointing knowing there's more power left on table.

2013 335xi and mines an electric wastegate (see previously attached video).

As long as you are monitoring timing and not getting excessive knock you could run a higher map. If you need specific tuning advice you'd need to post a log in the support section.

Just as a general F series update we started development on the F series ISO firmware today. We'll need this to maximize power gains on the factory turbo, control larger than stock turbos, to take F series N55 tuning to the next level.

Separating boost control from the DME should greatly simplify electronic wastegate tuning development as well.

Made my day!
If you need a electronic wastegate tester I'll help out.

Just to add to the fun, I checked to see if my MY2014 M-Sport F30 had an electric (expected) or pneumatic solenoid.

To my surprise I had neither... The studs were there but no solenoid at all.







Can anyone else with a 2014 confirm that this is the case. I do have the MPPK but I don't think removing the boost controller is part of the MPPK install.

I know for the MPPK there is 3 version for 3 different engines and the recent one is specifically for MY2014 and above. Maybe a 3rd iteration of N55 fun to worry about with the F series JB4?

Thoughts?

Photos above are of the electronic wastegate version.

Ah so the electronic are actually on the turbo's wastegate itself and no external solenoid? (Which is kinda what i thought).

At least there are some clear pictures of this now. I went crazy looking for it since it should of been obvious (or obviously missing)

I am pretty new to the BMW/tuning scene. Anyone care to explain what this means to us F30 owners, or link me somewhere I can read up?

This DOES sound exciting though!

I'm all in for the next level. Can't wait to slice a few more tenths off the quarter mile time.

Oh, and let's strap those Vargas turbos onto the F30 already!

No, it's not.

Making good progress. I'll hit the dyno soon to see if I can make any more power with the F series ISO. Last time around I think we did 385rw. Typically ISO is more about smoothness at partial throttle and greater flexibility as far as turbos go. But a few more peak HP is possible.
