For meth you'll want to run a BMS kit so its integrated with a progressive safety. On the BCM we've shipped a couple to customers who have provided logs and demonstrated the car is otherwise running properly/well just to keep the ball rolling.

Hi Terry, I saw you wanted us to post any data logs here. Here are a few from 3rd and 4th gear. The car is running straight 93 octane.

Is it safe to add E85 on it? Any good articles on how to read critical metrics and adjust parameters safely?

Thanks

Thanks I'll receive logs here, but won't offer any commentary on it. There is a how to read log thread in the support area.

On E85 as long as the fueling wires are connecting I've found an E30 mix works well.

Terry, do the general guidelines for checking logs provided in the support area (http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21269) apply to the N63?

Such as watching for FP L not falling below 50, Adv Ign Falling below 2 for E85, etc?

Thanks

No because not all applications even have low pressure logging active. The N63 does not. It does have high pressure logging if fuel wires are installed but fueling has not been an issue with the N63 platform even on E30 at 20psi (the limit of the TMAP sensor).

Sorry Terry, I thought all support requests were to be routed via this thread for now, during the beta phase. I'll send separate email.

What do you need to run map 7? Can i test on e30 with no bcm and just expect it to not hit the boost target?

BCM is needed for map7. Won't do anything more than map2 without it.

The butt-o-meter says otherwise ��. Wow. That map 7 makes the top-end a whole new monster. Even if its no extra boost without the bcm, it has to be mapped differently.

So we can still run let's say the E30 mix like you are running on map 2 with out the BCM ?
Or is the BCM required to run any E85 mixtures on the N63 period ?

You can run E30 without the BCM. The BCM just helps you get boost up by controlling the wastegates directly.

Im not 100% familiar with mixtures, what would be a good ratio ?
I will be using 93 with E85, is 3 to 1 good, what about 50/50 ?

Not knowing your station E85 blend content can make it difficult!
I measure mine before to know where is at, and make sure you know how much 93 gas you have as well!
But that's just me because usually people just assume what they are running by just adding 5gl E85 to top off the tank.

I attached a calculator app I use that will give you an idea, but you have to know the E85 content.

50/50 is too strong, e30-e40 would be the strongest i think it can handle. I add 4-5 gallons of e85 on an empty tank and then fill the rest 93 on top of it. Or 100 on top of it if im feeling wasteful. But i would have 12-13 gallons highest octane available and 4-6 e85. 6 was too much for my car but i guess every car is different.

Again that is all guessing and not verified E85 content!

100 percent correct, thats why i said the range i personally go by and they can go from there. 4 e85 and 14 91/93/100 shouldnt hurt anything even if you by chance find e100. Our e85 pumps even say its at least 50 percent ethanol, so each area who knows the actual percentage. One of these days ill order a test kit and find out for sure.

How does one upgrade from Stage 2 to Beta? I contacted you guys through the website, but didn't get an answer. Where would I send the JB4? I read through the thread but couldn't find anything (maybe I missed it.) Is it just a matter of mailing it to you along with the receipt without an RMA number? What's the turnaround time?
