  5. Hi At this point my goal is to make little more power with stock engine parts, with safety margin. Car is V70 AWD, 1997, manual, LPT. I transfered 609.bin tables and scalars to 608_rev5b.bin and flashed that to my M44. When i accelerate it lights lambda light and goes off when i release throttle, also it does not feel as powerful than stock 609, otherwise idle is good and engine starts normally. Any ideas for that problem? Before i go further i like to get those WB and boost sensor logging working in Tunerpro. I started with boost sensor. I have this pressure sensor https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Bar-Map-Manifold-Absolute-Pressure-Sensor-Turbo-Boost-Wire-Plug-Pigtail-122-CL/223337953057?epid=15026334817&hash=item33fffab721:g:h-8AAOSwDsZcRptR Sensor is wired like in M44 wikia and tested it with that formula: ((((X/255) + 0.04)/0.004)*0.145) Sensor output reading in Turnerpro with wiki formula was: - Atmosphere pressure (hose open) = 31.3 psi, sensor voltage to battery (-) = 1.64 V - With external 14.5psi (1bar) pressure source = 37.7 psi, sensor voltage to battery (-) = 3.22 V - Idle vacuum = -1.6psi, sensor voltage to battery (-) = 0.54 V After that tried to correct the reading. I put "X" only to equation box and see what it outputs. When the hose was open the reading was about 215 which in my mind is too high, because i think it should be more like 83 if 5 V=255. Also it goes to 255 if there is only about 2 psi pressure. Did i do something wrong?

    FrankenMoose 2: The Quickening, Part 2

    Boil over is probably the wrong term. Dumped oil out the vent is more accurate. Last time I drove the Silver VR to IPD with this trans in it, every time I would go over 70mph, the gear oil would spill out of the top vent. Made for a long trip home driving at 65mph. Most likely an over fill situation. but I still want to flush and fill just in case I did something stupid like put the wrong gear oil in or something.

    Boost Leak Test

    Interesting, I'm having the same problem on my Hilton stage 1 tuned 2000 V70R. I have the same iPd CBV as well. I've tried to find the boost leak (if that's actually the issue, which I'm pretty sure it is) but I just can't find anything. What you should do is block off the intercooler hose just before the throttle, that way no air can escape into the intake manifold and cause more noise to make it harder to hear the actual leak. That should also prevent air from getting into the PCV. As for the intercooler weep hole, just block that off with some duct tape or something.

    Still alive?

    Sadly no, still here. Have to wait until I can start drawing on my 401k, or need to learn Dutch so my chances for landing a job improve and might be able to move sooner. Darnell, yes, still local and still catching that train.

    18t turbo feeler...

    Rare find apparently, want to keep but could use the cash right now.. approx 145k on car it was pulled from - nice unit, no apparent shaft play or issues, spins freely .. does not include exhaust housing but I'm pretty certain I have either a straight or angled I could package with it .. PM [offers] if interested, can provide pics...

  23. After watching a few straight pipe S80s on youtube Ive decided that I want to add a exhaust cutout. Has anyone tried this before? Is the exhaust 2.5" diameter?
  24. Hello everyone, A few weeks ago, I accidentally filled up my 850 turbo with 88 octane E15. I noticed a slight increase in power and also got about 30 more miles out of that tank of gas than I normally do. Went back to the normal 91 octane E10 and my mileage went back down to where it normally was. So I tried it again, and once again I got about 2mpg better on the E15. Everything I have read about ethanol suggests I should get worse mileage with higher ethanol mixture. What gives? And most importantly, Should I be worried about it damaging my engine? I have read that E85 will make more power, but requires a special tune since it is similar to high octane fuel. Is there a specific point where too much ethanol becomes a problem? This same station also sells E30, curious how that would work.... Thank you!

    Tuners Rejoice! Free Tuning For M4.4!

    I'm in need of a bit of advice if anyone can help me out. I'm running a gt28 with supporting mods. Tuned it myself hitting 11.8 afr at WOT and 18psi of boost. I tuned it in dry but cold conditions. But now that the weather is much hotter it seems very flat at WOT compared to before. On the evenings when it's below say 10 degrees it pulls very well but during the warm days around 20 degrees C it seems to lack power. It still boosts fine if not 1 or 2 psi more sometimes in the warmer weather. I've read here that tuning with ldr off and leaving it that way can cause a power decrease in the warmer weather if the initial tuning was done in cooler weather. Its as if that's what I'm currently experiencing except I my ldr etc is all on and hasn't been messed with. Does anyone have any suggestions or is this possibly normal behaviour? Data logging shows 0 knock anywhere whether hot or cold weather. Thanks in advance

    You might be able to find Audi discs in that size and slightly bore the holes because guess what rotors B6 guys use with certain calipers... P2R discs. Just a thought
