Misfire Issue & Internals Upgrade Suggestion

Hi,

I got BMW 135i 09/2008 with the following FBO:

1. AA Intercooler
2. Chargepipe
3. Meth with dual nozzle
4. DCI
5. Low Temperature Thermostat
6. Nitrous w/ .0027 jet
7. AR Downpipe
8. Midpipe
9. aFe Axleback w/o muffler
10. JB

On december a misfire was presented in cylinder 3. I moved the injector to another cylinder, programmed and new oem spark plug so no more misfire after that. Then the last week i was running with another BMW and the misfire and lean mode came again on map 3. So I moved the ignition coil to another cylinder to discard the ignition coil but the issue came again in the same cylinder. Before the second issue on map 0 didn't have the issue. Now the check engine don't turn off in anyway at any maps and misfire on cylinder 2 and 3. I already verified the compression in all piston:

Firewall
6- 150psi
5- 150psi
4- 124psi
3- 92psi
2- 94psi
1- 150psi
Bumper

I don't have any white or black smoke from the exhaust or oil mixed with water.

I attached the injector and spark plug pictures from cylinder 3. The spark plug smell gas so i don't if the injector remain on or is dirty. So I sent all 6 injectors to http://www.injectorrx.com/

After i saw the compression I'm thinking about new internal upgrades like for example new pistons and/or cylinder head. I want too some recommendation according to my modifications or general modifications.

Not to alarm you too much, but those compression numbers would have me very, very worried. You don't want to see more than a 10% variance between cylinders.

Do you have access to a video scope that you can stick down the plug hole and get some pics of cylinders 2 and 3?

Where those cold or warm numbers? Regardless I think the compression ring is probably toasted. Keep us updated!

Those are unhappy compression numbers. It's probably worth doing a leak down test, but I'm afraid it will just verify the works.

That compression is beyond bad... i had mine tested and it was between 153-158 on all 6 cylinders. You have an internal issue.

You need to start finding a second hand engine and stop using nos.

Trade the car while there's still value.
