Hi, did a log and just had some questions. Pull starts on line 276 of the spreadsheet, for some reason it's saying I'm in first gear when RPM and MPH indicate otherwise. 2007 N54, manual running jb4, dci, arm chargepipe with tial bov, stock plugs, believe I also ran the firmware to eliminate wastegate rattle, map 1 running 93 octane. First question looks like I am getting up to boost but does it seem slower than normal? There is also a brief overboost when letting off the throttle at the end of the pull, BOV maybe? 2. I read fp_H should be 10-15, mine briefly goes up to 18, is this normal? The injectors and HPFP are brand new. 3. my timing looks to drop by 3 degrees twice during the pull, put 93 octane and and on stock plugs, does this look bad to you? Also wanted to get some eyes on the AFR as I pulled the plugs and they look a bit lean. Thank you.

A couple things

Enable 6cyl timing under user adjustments

Trims need a bit of work, do you have a means to load the BEF?

here are some pulls with the 6cyl timing enabled. Not really sure what happened on the first pull with the target boost only being at 8 but maybe it had something to do with droping FF/WASTEGATE ADAP back to 100, second pull it goes back to normal. Still working on the BEF. Thank you for the help.

hey,

This doesnt look bad, next time do the exact same thing, but do the pulls in 3rd gear.

From what I can see, timing is kind of crapping out a bit up top, we might want to add a litlte more octane.

Hey Dave,

I'm not sure why it's saying I'm in gears 1 and two for the beginning of both pulls. For the pulls starting at line 231 and line 1800 I'm in third the whole time, you can tell by MPH and RPM. I have another pull from a few days later as well, starts at line 379 and same deal, in third but its stating otherwise. is higher octane the only solution other than meth? I am on the pump gas flash using 93 oct currently.

How old are the plugs?

What type of fuel do you have access to?

Sorry for the delay btw!

Plugs are about 1-3 months old, running the stock Bosch plugs replaced two or three plugs about a month ago . I pulled them right after doing DCI and jb4 map 1 and they had a strange light colored deposit on them, did not smell like coolant though and it wiped off. I have not pulled them in the last few weeks since I installed the chargepipe/bov and FMIC though. I included a picture of the plugs, also was reading on whether to get the colder plugs but many were saying not necessary with the few bolt ons I have - what do you think?. I would have to drive to Newark about 45 minutes away to get e85, have 93 everywhere (finally got it from costco the other day- I took a log after that as well if I should upload).

I dont think the 1 or 2 step colder plugs would be a bad idea at this point.

I actually have a bone stock 335 @ home, and I have the NGK 2 step colder in, gapped to .020- no issues.

E85 would definably wake the car up alot, but it doesnt sound like its too convenient.

Are you looking for more power?

OK I will try one step to start hopefully the timing looks a little better. I definitely plan on doing ********* very soon, will take a look at the turbos then too. I was trying to just keep this on pump gas to avoid having to drive out there everytime I fill up but it's starting to look like e85 is the only option.

E85, or if easier methanol is another tried / true option.

Ok Ive been looking into meth just trying to find out if itís safe as far as raising octane I know it cools everything down but three things we kinda skipped over, 1.) does the boost seem to be coming on a bit late ? I feel like since the flash it only really comes on around 4300 when driving, is that normal it ?just seems super laggy to me but itís still fun you just kinda gotta wring it out.2.) Why is it saying Iím in 3 different gears when Iím actually in third gear the whole time? 3.). Have you seen similar deposits on plugs similar to this without it being coolant?
