This build is awesome! Keep the pics coming.
Thanks! New pics coming up in a few minutesNeed moar!!!!!! This is beautiful work man! Very jealous right about now!
You don't have to remove the stock tank in order to remove the fuel pump, you do have to remove the exhaust and heat shield to get to the fuel pump though... I don't have any pictures of this though, because I just removed the whole tank in favor of the new Radium fuel cell in the trunk.Have you got photos of you removing the fuel tank to install the lpfp I would really love to see this as I need to get to my LPFP soon to see if its healthy or not.
Replied on N54 techThanks!
I finally got it out on the road and took some logs of 3rd gear on Map 1 (safety map) with a 14psi WG spring setup...
I'll try and attach the logs, hopefully I can do this right and get someone to take a quick look at them before I try Map 2
Good eye! Yes I removed the whole A/C system from the car for a bunch of reasons. I hardly ever used it being a convertible, the lines were ugly, the condenser was beat up, the compressor was heavy, so the whole system saved some weight off the car... I was also having issues with shredding belts for some unknown reason when I had MMP turbos making around 675whp... Now I have a much shorter belt that wraps about 3/4 the way around the crank instead of less then 1/2 way around... and so far, I have yet to have anymore belt issues.No A/C?
I think the E8x/9x A/C lines are ugly. If I can make the Z lines work, and they route out of sight ...
Why 14psi spring ... 3 port? ... I was going to go 8psi and 4 port; I feel that in a shit situation 8 is a safer number than higher, if HPFP fails, throws a belt, blows a charge pipe, etc.
5) With the MAC solenoid in theory the JB4 can control up to 4x the wastegate spring but in practice smaller twin scroll turbos tend to be closer to 2.5x the wastegate spring. We suggest going 40% of your desired maximum boost target. So for a 30psi maximum target around a 12psi spring. Going too high on the spring will sacrifice partial throttle boost control and smoothness. Going too low will prevent you from hitting higher boost targets at higher RPM"
Sorry, the only picture I have of it, is in the packaging on my workbench, and the label is covering most of it...Can you show me the included water pump bracket? What did you do to clear the pump?
