Agreed, i'm well aware of those builds. Nelsons motors often displace over 10.0 litres and are built for 1/4 mile so they're not built for insane top end runs. I remember LMR built that 2000+hp C6 a yr or two ago but it just couldn't put the power down on the road. I think it did beat a lambo or two the runway event it won though.
Yes, there are plenty making over 600 rwhp that are streetable. "

It was a comment in general, not likely to happen. You're correct though, anything Android, Windows, Linux (actually, anything that is code-related). They seem to find an exploit when people say it can't be done. I'll post the question over there to see if there are any BMW guys interested in giving it a shot. "

Someone has to have a worn out one laying around no?

It's worth the wait. @Mike@fftec will take care of you.
Awesome! Thanks for the kind words and I look forward to seeing your car making some serious power soon! "

Im not really fustrated, because the problem occures just if i pull the car from low rpm to redline It takes me just 5.5s from 62-111 mph, for a stage1 turbo, the car goes like hell.
If you have taken over 100 logs made changes, and still are having the same issue, it seems it might be time to consult someone who knows flash tuning on the N55 a little better, no? "

It sounds like they're just arguing in circles on that thread....now i'm confused lol.

I don't *think* Xcess is ester based but I need to check, I won't pretend to be an oil expert.

Sounds like broadly speaking folks are going to thicker oil with ethanol, though my sample didn't indicate any substantial loss of lubrication quality or shearing. IDK I think i'll stay with with this current oil and OCI unless I see something troubling. If you feel differently let me know!! "
