As for the dme flash and ability for some e85 on the single, is it possible to see 710whp with 50% e85 and meth!!!

Shiv knows I want to press the platform further. I will go as far as he feels comfortable. I think the biggest advantage will be the timing advance in the mid range he can run on E85.

Nice!

How come your first catalog shows 6.9krpms on the graph, but 4.9krpms in the left pane? Is this a composite image?

Mr. Review Man himself! Great job! Only one question, just curious as to how many miles were on your car before shipping it?

That exhaust sounds soooooooooooooo exotic

Funny how we keep redefining "scary fast" on this platform.

Are all four of the meth nozzles tapped into the end tanks or just two?

Amazing.. and would expect nothing less. Great review looking forward to your 1/4 mile runs and results. Also I know this is off topic but Shiv please do check your PMs.

nice review

it all seemed positive, im sure it has some downsides, besides the downtime how many issues did you have with the tune, any hiccups or would you see the car feels like it came from the factory that way?

any plans to do some headwork and hopefully raise the shift point to rev it out more (it seems to want to keep making power... i mean the tq is straight untill the end with no drop off!!)

The Ghost, I think that part of the image is the simple snap shot data. I have the line data in the same location.

Ilma, you can see in the video what I define as scary fast. I row out gears FAST on this car. I love the exhaust sound too!!!

I believe all 4 are on end tanks, but I will look in the morning.

saxon, the bog on NLS when I got the car back was bad. Shiv had a new map to me within a week. I had one hiccup where the procede seemed to lose power and it threw a code, but that is it. Quite frankly, this is my kind of car so I would love to have had something like this from BMW. I have been waiting to transform my car into this for a long time. I wish you could see the passenger's reaction when the sit in the passenger seat.

I am eagerly waiting to see the results on the head work another member is doing, but yes there are plans to keep building.

Fantastic review, well done and worth the wait to read. Makes me sad to leave the platform to enter the S65 with both feet, finally. Both great engines, but the potential of the N54 far surpasses any expectations people would have had even just a year ago. Congrats on your beast and enjoy and thanks for educating the community!

Bmw135er, enjoy the jump to the S65! I honestly was VERY close to letting my car go when Vishnu came out with the kit. I had some tough decisions to make, but in the end I think I made the right decision for me. I have a tame car that is truly a sleeper.

Thanks for going through the review.

Congrats dude. So you are the reason my NLS works so well

I copied you with the exhaust, and it does sound sweet.

See you in the 700s

Very nice FBIS

I am also curious about the meth line routing... from the FAV, there's 3 Ts with one snaking around to the hot side?

I do think the DME programming could be cleaned up a little. And maybe boost control... DC gear comp Shiv?

Can't believe you can dead hook in second.

Joshboody, the R888 are no joke with some suspension work on this car. I didn't do the install on the meth kit, so maybe Shiv can jump in here. If not, I will trace the lines in the morning.
