" Chances are these guys have some very high end software "specialist" that were able to beat the encryption, and then worked with a Jailbreak "tuner" to modify some of the OEM tables. This is how it starts, so more people work on it, it'll slowly get more and more refined, in addition to more control over the OEM tables. "

2 problems with this -- 1) Kills resale value & backdoors BMW into making sure when the car is sold, that someone doesn't try to sell the car with a "warranty" and 2) how to do you prevent someone basically "copying" the unlocked code onto a car that is still technically covered under manufacture warranty?Puts a LOT of responsibility on the manufacturer that they just don't want to waste their time (and money, and resources) with.

" Kind of a thread jack but do you need to run e85 all the time to run the bms backend flash? Or will it be fine if you only run e85 every once in a while (once every 4 tanks).


edit: what benefits are there to running the backend flash? "

musc replied to the thread BimmerBoost Flash questions.
" As a standalone flash the OFT flashes will work fine though I wouldn't go aggressive without any great way to log other than the BT software. I would probably advise against using BMS backend flashes as a standalone because the load targets and WGDC changes were designed to work with a JB4, not as a standalone.

I have a few friends that run the OFT Stage 1 flash without the tablet. I flashed them with the BB software/BT cable. For basically a free flash (aside from BT cable cost), I was pretty impressed. At one of our dyno days it actually on par with a JB4 G5 on Map 2 with DPs, DCI. The OFT Stage 1 was otherwise stock down to the airbox. "

They must work to some degree or people would stop using them no? Usually manufacturers figure out pretty quick if something is a reliability nightmare and stop manufacturing it.
When they are working as they are supposed to work, yes they do perform the task they are their for, quicker spool, and more top end. But from what we have seen, they are slowly getting phased out. Ford used them for a while, now they do not in the newest stuff. The ford 6.0 diesel VGT was a disaster, they get stuck often, causing low power conditions. VW used them in just about every turbocharged vehicle they made, they used Garrett unit, we just upgraded two 2015 units for a customer in South Africa, the Golf R's and the new GTI's both went away from the VGT and are no longer garrett unit. Just about everything we see if going away from them into more small frame Twin Scroll design. They really are that problematic, they are MANY small moving parts that are sitting directly in the exhaust, a lot of these are on diesels, that soot and exhaust just coat everything and they stop moving. I would not be surprised to see them gone soon. Porsche still uses them on the 997's. We have yet to see one, so they are most likely a better design, but we have seen about 10 different designs from differing manufactures, some are simple and much less prone to failure, some are just plain bad designs. I think the electric turbo to help spool is where the future would be heading over VGT. "
