Roads in his area are clear of snow now but a little damp still from yesterday's storm.

He certainly would not be able to go WOT in lower gears without significant traction loss.

But I'm sure he's out tasting the goods like a kid in a candy store.
Kids don't leave candy stores scared shitless ok, maybe a halloween candy store...

hahahahahhaa I didn't go anywhere too far

All I can say is that I'm really shocked by the performance of these turbos to a point of being worried what I've got under my right foot now

It rips at 13.5psi...the only other thing at 17psi is to spin off the road into a nearby ditch, tree, etc. damn winter

They do feel pretty amazing at only 14psi but they really shine in the 17-18psi range... Your going to love it!

Where is summer when you need it
We should all live in cali or Florida, was thinking about posting up a thread for all us not so fortunate on how to make the perfect v5 wintermap with regard to traction control/boost seting throttle senetivety, but i guess you are beyond saving now
Reading your and Georges review on Rb im getting convinced its the way to go for me too

Yesterday evening around 7PM I came across a stretch of road that was decently dry but speed limit was let's just say VERY low its a small sideroad, no traffic from either side so sort of safe of traffic and cops ... Switched to map1 on 1/21 firmware so 13.5psi boost only!...Launching was just stupid and just left me spinning ALL THE WAY THROUGH Next I rolled to about 40km/h, 2nd gear eased into it...WOT...ZERO traction, car was everywhere...next I was on the highway, again very few cars around and I found a stretch of a very long offramp...shifted down into 3rd at around 70km/hr...WOT, spinning instantly...went to about 85km/hr, ease into it then WOT spinning At this point I was like WTF is this 13.5psi!!! Back around onto the highway, get to the offramp, now 4th gear at 4k rpm hit it and by the time the car was at around 4500rpm, honestly don't know exactly, the car lost traction and this made almost made me shit my pants! At this point I just freaked out and GAVE UP! Sent Shiv that message, went home and got some relax warm tea hahaha

'nuff said for now...I have one single wussy datalog from this morning on stock boost, procede valet mode, but that doesn't tell much at all...

Hopefully I'll find some time this evening to do a few pulls and get some real datalogs...

Rob Beck, you've created a monster!! THANK YOU!
Cold weather FTL.

We need TRACTION!

I wish I could dig all that up but honestly no time...Had this car since April 2008 and tuned since it had only maybe 800km on it with v1 procede...baseline for this car with all of my boltons in my signature was around 262whp/280wtq..On pump gas and around 15psi it made 370whp/410wtq and at 17.5psi with pump and 50/50 meth (single CM7 nozzle) it did 402whp/445wtq and that's the highest with this car so far...so with all the mods in my signature and stock turbos it was a 140whp difference over stock on pump gas and meth and 17.5psi...that was on V4 with autotuning and UR 2.5" DPs...latest V5 maps have changed power delivery pretty dramatically, paired with RBs and AR 3" DPs it should be a huge difference at 17.5-18psi when I redyno which will be pretty soon...

Awesome that is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks for taking the time to write it all out...my progression is taking a similar path (although I have been tuned since 200km out the box....55k and counting on original clutch and HPFP to boot!).

Were all your runs on a Mustang or Dynojet?

For me (All Dynojet)

SSTT/Catless: 320hp 336ft/lbs
Procede Rev. II/Catless (non-autotune 2009)@13.0psi: 360hp 362ft/lbs
Procede Rev. II/FMIC/Catless Mid(Autotune)@13.5psi: 372hp 401ft/lbs


When I get back: LSD, Clutch, Meth, Turbo.....not necessarily in that order...plus upgraded suspension and possible widebody.......can't wait and your thread keeps me looking forward and forgetting about the 1M what?

Logs look good!

Funny how the timing dips to zero when you get wheelspin.

SNOW AGAIN

I have a recall letter from BMW for the fuel pump and whatever else required. I was just reluctant in going in as I never had any fuel pump related issues. Guess its time to schedule it in...

That was interesting. At first I was wondering why I had a timing dropout to zero and then noticed wheel spin in the RPM graph. Now, wondering if this was Procede's traction control or bmw ecu's. Full OEM traction control was on for these runs, otherwise I would've been off the road.

nice ! i am putting my car back on the dyno as well as soon as my 02 sensor issue is resolved. Cool to compare. Would be nice to run the same autotuned boost and see the differences. 19 psi with meth and 15.5-16 psi on pump should be enough to push the turbos and make some good power.
