" That is why we use a wing nut with our mounts because the case holds the nut from spinning and with the socket makes it easy to snug up and hold in place.

On the timing I found 6 degrees to be a pretty good MBT value for it. From 6-11 in 1 degree increments there is basically no gain all else being equal. Dropping below 6 started to drop power a bit. The pump map I ran on the same curve which produced the best figures but a curve of around 5 degrees would be more appropriate. We are evaluating using the same curve with a little less aggressive boost curve. Because it will simplify things for the end users if the same back end flash can be optimized for both on and off meth, allowing on the fly map changes where the JB4 changes the boost profile, IAT decay, and fuel trims, with no need to swap flash maps to optimize either.

The 3.5 bar map is required for > 21psi. In the JB4 we've also made the 3.5 bar map sensor the "setting" to enable the larger turbo maps. So you'll need it if you plan to run the maps shown in the dyno. Although technically speaking you could just make your own map 6 boost profile values (below 21psi) without the sensor.
Thanks Terry, I appreciate you sharing all this info.
Would rep again if I could. "

what are you getting at here?

'Off road use only' sure keep up with the legal jargon, but I think I remember Shiv going to a Smog station in CA with catless downpipes in an N54 equipped car with the stock secondaries still in place...and the car passed with flying colors.

Being 8 years later since that car came out, Im sure BMW has become ever more stringent in keeping emissions low. With stock mid-pipes left in place, Im sure this car would pass any tailpipe sniffer with ease. Here in NY we get a plug-in OBD scan for any car over 2 years old, anything under 2 years old gets a $10 safety sticker and you're on your way. "

Yes, that is correct.

Well I know why on the autos, but, on this particular car I just don't think they needed to. Someone still needs to do it first I suppose. "

" The single or Stage 3's will be a better bang for your buck IMO. And probably easier on your motor less boost for same or more whp. Id prefer a small single over an hybrid stock frame twin setup any day. "
