If you wanted to you could use ATR to limit targeted load until the engine comes up to temp.

Lol this might be a dumb question but I'm not sure which stage to run. 2 or 2+?

I upload a stage 2+ and boost ramped up to 19.5 psi on stock turbos, no meth, no eXX gas either. Isn't that a bit too much? Don't want to blow them.

you should be fine. thats peak boost, it should taper down.

So long as it's tapering at higher rpms, you're OK with that in the midrange. 19.5psi sounds about right for Stg2+ aggressive, my last log showed 18.7 peak and that was in fairly cold weather, so it didn't have to larget as aggressively.

I've never seen boost higher than 18.5 psi on S2+ Aggressive. Are you S2+ guys running E30 maps? I think 18.5 psi is the boost cap enforced by Cobb on S2+ maps.

I got the unit yesterday and loaded what was preprogrammed in there.

Was not a race map for sure

It could be a spike during a throttle closure or it could be they are really close to sea level. The DME will allow more boost the lower your DA(it's a 1.28bar pressure cap, not a ~18.5psi cap.)

My turn for a log review! 1st attempt at doing a proper WOT log from sitting around 2500rpm in 3rd, logging, and redlining through 4th.



I'm also providing the 2 .csv files for further diagnosis. The only picture is for the 1st pull not the 2nd.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/45967619/da...T3-4_First.csv

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/45967619/da...3-4_Second.csv

Let me know what you guys see. Running 93octane on an 09' e90 w/ Stg1 aggressive ST/LT (have flipped between both). Currently set to LT during logs.

I am not seeing the proper log, at least the picture. I haven't seen the attachments yet. Based upon your pedal pos. Are you AT?

I see you have some minor corrections on cylinder 1 and 4, I think that's normal but let the experts answer. I have another question your log shows negative PSI when you not pressing on the gas my logs weirdly show -0.06 at max where they should be like yours. Anyone knows why I do not see negative PSI, like -11.0, is it because of diverter valves, or a glitch?

My last log with stage-1+FMC Sport with Stock Throttle

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1n6p69h0do...C-sport-ST.csv

Oh ya I'm running the latest firmware and 4.02 map ^^^^^^^^

Iím seeing the log starting at nearly 4K rpms, which is higher than youíd like, so Iím only commenting on the 4K-redline part of the pullÖ.But what data there is looks fine. You have some minor corrections going on but I wouldnít consider them to be particularly significant, and timing builds nicely to the gear shift. AFRs look good, your boost is hitting targets, so thatís all solid. Try to capture a better log next time, and donít worry about logging a bunch of shifts, a good 3rd gear pull is what you want. Also, check out how hard your OE intercooler is failing at restraining charge temps, starting charge temps of nearly 100 deg climbing to 140 after a bit of aggressive driving. It would be extremely wise to get an intercooler as your next mod, the stock intercooler will get abused in FL summers Iíd imagine. And you can go to the 1+ maps, which are pretty sweet.

Crap - do I have a boost leak? It's been like this since stock no mods except cobb. These logs are from Stage 1 + FMIC Sport Stock Throttle MAP 4.02.

Here is screen shot of no throttle, shouldn't boost be like -12.0?

if you had a boost leak, more than likely your would throw a code P30FF.

i always have -x.xx boost before going WOT, its pretty normal when APP is at 0 and cruising low RPMs.

your challenge with AT was your kickdown. its tough to go WOT at 2500 RPMs. You should put a spacer under the pedal to STOP the pedal from hitting the KickDown switch. just push with your arm so you can feel the switch. the spacer is +- 5/16" of an inch. you should be in M3 @ 2500, click the AP to Log, wait a split sec to show logging, then WOT.

or you can just ease in the pedal, but my best is WOT at 3800k, anything before that most likely you will hit the kickdown, very hard to master.

its white trash but it will make your logging time worth while. If you do this ensure your AP shows 100% for Throttle Pos. before logging. you can just push the pedal all the way down with the AP plunged in. no need to have the car on.

pretty standard for Stock FMIC. Heat-soak very quickly, which could also be the cause of his minor timing corrections.

Thanks,

I checked the Requested Boost and Boost Mean Abs and the difference is +/- 1 so I guess I do not have boost leak but what bothers me is that I do not see a lot more negative pressure/vacum under the whole boost log. I never see more NEGATIVE boost/Vacum then -0.48 in the logs. Is this a COBB glitch or is something wrong with my car, because I see other forum user logs and they have -11.X when under vacum? Any turbo car that I have driven had vacum more way more then what my log shows. If anyone knows let me know.

Guys had a new FMIC put on the car and today when attempting first WOT after getting the cobb on I got a poof noise and then the engine malfunction light and the code read something about boost control leak (I cleared the codes trying to see if they'd return... They didn't so I didn't grab the code number) I also had a code about coolant levels measuring ( I did save that code on my iphone, but its in the house as I'm flashing back to stock at the moment) These are both new issues as I'd been running stage 1 aggressive fine without a hitch

Could I have picked the wrong stage 1 FMIC map (their were like 3 sport ones)?

Power seemed fine after the engine light (not that I attempted a WOT) I did manage to be logging when it happened right now I'm flashing back to stock.

Is it advised to go WOT again/ try for a recreate or just go right to an indy/dealer?

Not exactly a great start into FBO mods.
