Next mod N54?

Hello! I have the following mods on or will be done this weekend and wanted to see what should be done next on the platform...

Dual Cone Intake
Charge Pipe w/ BOV
FMIC with lower charge pipe
3" Catless downpipes
JB4 G5
HR lowering springs

I know eventually I will get either good struts or change over to a mid level coil over but the shocks are new and will wait till they blow. Also, same with wheels, my tires are so new Im going to wait until I need new ones before getting rims.

Im assuming now, its things for preventive maintenance spark plugs etc. My plan is to run map7 on 100octane or 50/50 e85 (most likely 100). The car is not a daily driver so maybe a few hundred miles a month max. Its automatic as well with 37k miles. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks for the input as always

The backend flash has nothing to do with your trans. It optimizes the JB4 for your car.

Which you need a cobb accessport for. Go onto burgertuning.com and you'll find out more info about the back end flash.

false. you can either use it with the cobb ap OR the new bb flash software, which is free. In fact, I don't think bms even supports the cobb ap way of flashing anymore, seeing as how that thread is no longer on their website. Its mainly bb flash software now.

I stand corrected. My bad, I thought for the longest time you needed the AP for the backend flash. You learn something new everyday.

Go to ****************.com and they'll walk you through a custom back-end flash and also an Alpina transmission flash.

Tremendous bang for the buck and saves you having to buy a Cobb just to load a back-end flash.

M3 control arms for better control/steering. Totally worth the money ~$400

Walnut shell blast your valves( I know not really a mod) also ~$450

When the time comes go for some lighter weight wheels and some good tires

Stock brakes are pretty solid if you aren't going to track though a 2 PC rotor will be nice for reducing unsprung weight.

Im a little confused I thought the Cobb was something you would get instead or as a choice between the JB4? Why would I need a Cobb to do anything related to the JB4? Thanks

So if I'm not retarded, you use a "bb flash software"*that you hook up to the obj board ECU to "flash" it. SO basically this software can be found for free and all you need to do is connect withe a cable and upload via a windows machine?

Your right about there. 40k is a good interval for shell blasting.

Flush your coolant if it hasn't been yet.

Alpina trans flash as previously mentioned is pretty sweet. Awesome rev matching and shift speed.

Bank on your water pump and Tstat to go, likely before 50k. (My experience twice)

Since you are basically FBO you might want to do an exhaust but it's minimal gains and slight improvement in throttle response, tons better sound though.
