Glad to hear there isn't overboost, I'm still learning to read the logs and probably did get confused...
Just took a quick look at your log. You have a bit of throttle closure from overboost, and a few minor timing corrections. As far as logging and RPM, the more data the better.

Ok, thanks. I think changing plugs will fix the timing corrections, though if that doesn't help i'm not sure what to do next. I have the tune off the car currently since I'm going to try and get plugs under BMW maintenance, but I'll try and get a better log this week if I need to go to an indy shop.

How do I go about fixing the overboost? Is it worth fixing? I had this happen before in another log before I downloaded ATR, and I'm not sure what to change on the map to prevent overboosting.

Your corrections were minor (-3 or less) and only in two cylinders. It's not really too much to worry about. It might be caused by the throttle closure or be adapation based. I find whenever I flash a new map and don't go WOT a few times, timing corrections will show up.

As far as fixing the overboost (which was minor) you are going to want to massage your "WGDC Base" table as a starting point. Multiply your table by .9 to scale it down 10%. If throttle closures still show up go ahead and log "MAF requested WGDC" and "Boost Setpoint Factor", post it up here, and we can go from there.

Ultimate goal on stock turbos is E40 + Meth; until we get more definitive long-term testing on high E85 concentrations Iím a bit hesitant to run E50+. Not to mention the 6AT puts a practical cap on the type of torque I can run midrange once meth comes into the equation.

Ok, thanks! I'll get on ATR and take a log once I'm done trying to get the dealership to do some maintenance before my warranty goes up. Hoping for plugs and walnut blasting

No problem. Let me know if thereís anything concerning you see in the log, or if thereís other context on my end that would be helpful for whatever youíre trying to look into. Iím always trying to learn more.

Your HP and LP look very similar to mine, but the problem is i'm running 93 when this happens. Trims are lower than yours with a scalar of 1.000, but that's expected. Do you throw any fuel codes? The only one I'm getting is 2AAF. AFR's are on point as are yours. Your log looks pretty good.

HmÖ.I can look over some older pump gas logs I have from the winter, but IIRC I wasnít logging trim or fuel PSI since it didnít seem necessary. Every now and then the car will throw P2AAF, and itís also thrown P29E-something fuel mixture related. But thatís rare, and Iíve had a grand total of 1 misfire/limp mode since switching to the E30 map about 5 months ago. I was pretty happy with that particular log, itís def one of the cleanest oneís my motor has produced.

I guess Iíd just say that if youíre good on AFR, and good on trimÖI wouldnít worry too much about pump PSI. Could just be your stock pumps getting a bit tired, my LPFP is probably in the later stages of its life. So long as HPFP PSI isnít tanking and the car is at a healthy AFR, it would seem things are more or less OK on the fuel delivery front, no?

That's what it is most likely. It's just suprising considering my car has 24,000 miles and I don't use ethanol. I guess I'll start looking into Walbro's as I was going to do it anyway.

Correct, the only issue is LP dropping. HP, trims and AFR are all fine.

So that leaves boost solenoids and getting a new cp combo. Are there any DIYs out there for boost solenoids?

Not that I'm aware of, but they're probably fine. It's the vacuum hoses to/from the reservoirs that feed the WGAs that you want to check out from what I've heard.

Is it as simple as looking at the wastegate, finding the vac hose, and tracing it back and just replacing the hose? I'm just so far away from any real help that I want to be sure before I start digging around.


Anybody have part numbers or an auto zone equivalent or the hose measurements before I go digging?

also bad timing corrections in that first log .what fuel are you running to get those stock ?
I'll start taking a close look this weekend. In the meantime, I'll keep it on Stage 0.

I was running nevada 91 ACN fuel....

I'm hoping someone who has done it will chime in, but it's all the hoses connected to the vacuum canisters in the front passenger side of the engine bay. They say that the ones that cross over the front of the motor (that supply manifold vacuum to the canisters) tend to be likely to leak as the years go by.

The lines are cheap so get yourself something like 12 feet of silicon tubing and just change them all out. You will have to take the canisters out to reach some of the hoses and the engine cover to change the two under there (you could put new ones on the outside, leaving the old under the cover, just to try if it helps). Also remember the lines from your diverter valves to throttle body. Be careful not to break any connections as they are plastic and some lines tend to be stuck on there. I used a pick to loosen some of them as I pulled on the line.

Thank you. I'll pick some up next time I'm in town. Hopefully that'll fix the problem.

29F3 fuel pressure sensor, electrical

29CE misfirings, cylinder 2

not sure what the top one is. clear this with cobb and see if they come back. If the this tune triggered this misfire, then you should go through the misfiring steps.
