Icon1 First Log Review - 10-08-2018, 08:40 PM

Hi all! New 335i owner here - 2007 BMW 335i, N54, E90, Sedan, Manual Transmission. Running on 93 Octane. It already had most of the normal mods done to it when I purchased:

- ctless downpips (can't spell out on this forum?)
- DCI
- Upgraded Chargepipe, BOV
- Upgraded Intercooler (5" I believe)
- Oil Cooler

It had an unknown tune/flash on it when I purchased and was putting out ~18-19 psi boost. I had the JB4 with bluetooth kit installed by a local performance shop that specializes in the N54/N55 engines (it's almost all they do), and did the MHD flash to go with it. Was running Map 5 but I think I prefer Map 2.

Anywho, that's the foundation. Note, I used the auto-logging feature (70% throttle with 3 second setting), which I think may be why it didn't start recording until 10 mph - does that sound right?

Also, my Max Boost came up as 19.4 psi, but I'm not seeing I hit that in the log - what am I missing? I'm assuming that didn't happen in the missing 0-10mph range...unless maybe it was during the initial rev up before letting the clutch out? I didn't do any brake boosting or use the parking brake or anything like that.

Any other notes about the log/screenshots I attached, I'm open to hearing! Thanks guys/gals!

First- welcome!

Proper log for review is 3rd gear, WOT, traction control off, 2k to redline.

Enable 6cyl logging in your user adjustment tab too & relog

Thanks Dave!

I assume I need to set "6-Cyl Timing Logging" to 4 (I8A0S) for my car, sound right?

Question 3rd Gear Pull - 10-09-2018, 05:04 PM

Ok, I think I did this right...

I tried to find a straightaway but there was a little bit of a curve to it. Hopefully this works.

Log file, chart, and settings pages attached

How are we looking??

Couple things- enable 6cyl logging- can’t see those still.

Timing in general looks “decent” but drops up top.

LPFP - is into the 40s- id recommend an upgrade ASAP.

FF is at 150 - usually that means you have a boost / vac leak somewhere & your WGDC is about maxed too uptop. Look for a leak.

Thanks!

I'm not sure why 6cyl logging isn't on - I set it to 4 like we mentioned up top, and I saw it at one point, but I see in my screenshot it's back to 0.

Thanks for the tip on LPFP - have to check into that.

Ando at Burger mentioned today I should lower FF to 120 - I'm new to the turbo world though, what exactly is FF/does this do?
