Feeler: Group Tune Day/Coding - September 8th

NOTE: This is just a feeler until we see if there is enough interest.

I have received a few requests here and there for a group tune day and so I would like to gauge everyone's interest all in one thread. We would need 8 cars total confirmed in order to host the day. If we get enough interest I will set it up and make a formal thread to finalize the date. Our next available date would be Saturday, September 8th so please let me know what your thoughts are and then we can move forward from there!

What can we tune?
  • N54 135i
  • N54 335i
  • N54 535i
  • 1M

We can tune for bolt on modifications, meth kits, conservative tunes for racing use and more. Let me know if you have any questions specifically regarding your setup.

As an added benefit of the day, member Andrey (formerly OneBadMofo) will be onsite coding cars if we can fill up this list! For more information on what he can do for you check out his thread here.

Where: EFI Logics - 8 Sympaug Park Road
Bethel, CT 06801

Contact: Phone - 203.748.1115 / Email sales@efilogics.com

When: Saturday, September 8th, 2012 starting at 9am

Price: $400 per tune plus tax



Please find the consolidated list of people interested below. If you would like to participate please copy and paste the current list into a new post and add your name.

-Josh

Only "proper way" to integrate meth w/ COBB is through an ATP tune. I love HP so I'm in

Josh -- I'm assuming it's gonna be $xxx (depending on how people) for 1 custom map?

**Josh -- I'm not trying to take the words out of your mouth, but I just want to post what to expect if they join this GB for the ATP Map.

After speaking w/ Josh in another thread, what EFI is basically offering is a Group Buy on a custom AccessTunerPro COBB map. It will require that you have the COBB Accessport purchased for the Sept 8th tuning. I know that ATR just came out, but I'd like to have my first custom map made by a COBB instructed tuner, that way I have an "advanced template" (compared to an OTS map) to make a Race Gas/E85 Map for myself.

The ATP tune will take into account a variety of variables, including:
  • The OTS Map you wish to start with
  • The Octane you plan on using with the map (Race Gas, E85, Meth Map)
  • The specific mods installed on your car (RB Turbos, Catless vs Race-Cat DPs, etc)

The idea is that while the COBB OTS maps are very good, they are conservative so that it works on everyone's required mods. Obviously an aFe intake has a different efficiency then a Gruppe M or a BMS DCI; a Helix FMIC operates differently than an ETS, ER or Big Tom FMIC, etc. If you're also looking to have a "Track Map" made, you would just need to show up with the gas you plan on running (100 Oct/E85) and the tune will be tailored to maximize the performance provided by the higher octane.

The idea is that like any other GB for a part, you'll be able to get an ATP Map made by EFI. ***I have no idea what this will cost or how map(s) EFI will allow in the group buy, but I'm sure Josh + EFI will be willing to address each participants specific requests.

I revised my original post to be a bit more comprehensive, but yes. This is via the Cobb AP and we can calibrate cars for meth. What kit do you have?

Well said, thank you. Please note that we have not calibrated any N54s to run on E85 yet. We were planning on doing some testing on my car once we finish the Wavetrac differential install, but if that is something you guys are generally interested in doing most we can have a discussion about that. If you can find 100 octane (I know it is stored and sold at a few locations) we can do that no problem. I also picked up a supply of Torco race fuel additive to explore what can be done using it with a 93 oct/Torco blend. Some nice detonation protection is expected. We have been very anxious to get some aftermarket turbo N54s in!

Not running a kit yet, but I'd like one. Haven't bothered because cobb has not supported it yet.

Regardless of whether or not I get a kit, I am down for this. Let me know when you have enough people to send payment

Got it, sounds good! I will start a list up now with you.

Additionally, for anyone interested, forum member Andrey (formerly OneBadMofo) will be on site coding cars. To see what he can do check out the link in my initial post!

**If anyone wants race fuel, I can pick up 100 octane at a Sunoco before I make the trip. I have a 5 gallon jug, but if there are enough people I'll buy another jug to meet demand

From what I've seen, the HFS-4 kit integrates very well with COBB. I believe it is the only kit that does at this point...

Just get off of 95 in Fairfield. There's a Sunoco there (Kings Highway) with 100oct on pump.




Interested to see what type of power EFI can squeeze out of a Protuned FBO/Meth car.

Josh, just as a side note, you may want to reconsider the date. Bimmerstock (Glen Cove) was just announced as being on Sept 9, so I'm not sure people will be as willing to make the trip if they're planning to also attend the huge meet. Just a heads up

Good point, Zack. Thanks for the heads up. If everyone would prefer a later date that is completely fine. We are not opposed to hosting on another date that would work better for anyone participating. I will unfortunately not be able to attend Bimmerstock as I will be prepping for a NJMP track day, but that's a great show.

Don't have a meth kit yet since cobb did not release a map to support one. Most likely will get the Aquamist HSF-4 since I heard it integrates with the Cobb AP.

The HSF-4 would be a good choice.

Bump for the list! We cannot finalize the group tune and coding day without the list being completed!

You can put your name on the list if you would like. Totally your call... If I can see that there is enough interest I will finalize the date and ask everyone for a deposit. Up until then, nothing is set in stone.
