Turbo m52 obd2

107 posts in this topic

I decided to join to let you know there are things going on in the Midwest of the "BMW" variety.

I bought a 1996 328i in May with the intent to turbo it... Which has been done now, I'm kind of regretting not posting my journey on here now but it is basically done.

I'll post updates with pics and vids to get some creative juices going.

if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Dont bother posting a dyno chart unless it is notarized, dated, scanned in on a 1200x1200dpi printer, and uploaded to a secure server. 

Ignore the troll, welcome!

I'm going to pull a wheel off later today and figure out what they are.

I might take the m3 bumper off my 325is and put the one off this car on there.

Partly because it will clear the intercooler better.

or I may say no bumper and max cooling.

where are you going to put those gauges?

I like them up top because they are easy to see, but most likely I will be cutting out the sunglass holder move the obc down and move the radio where the obc used to be and put the gauges where the radio use to be. If that makes sense.

Well from what I have gathered the rims where made in the same place as Mille miglia, unless they are fakes but they say made in Italy and Fomb which is the place that makes Mille miglia.

Me I'm using kwp2000 to tune the stock ecu. 

Im probably going to switch to MS3 

It just takes way to long to make tiny adjustments.

Awesome! What maf are you using? And cant you simply do partial flashes instead of sending an entire file?

Stock maf which is good up to 400 hp.

With the software I'm using you have to pull all the info off the ecu.

If there is a better way please guide me to the land of 1000hp lol

Its obdII and as far as I know rk tunes is the only people who will tune it, at a price of 1500 dollars. Which is a rip off, I'd rather put my money elsewhere.

This is just something fun to drive around town.

Well the HPX maf would be my next switch, along with e85. Tune it yourself! its a lot of fun. But I swear I read online about partial flashes with obd2. You are using romraider correct? 

Odb1 tuning is very easy and much cheaper, but in your boat I would go MS3 if you aren't happy with the stock ecu. SOOO much easier.

Changed some things up on the car.

Had it dynoed at late model throttle.

It was with a spare ecu with no revisions stock injectors and fmu :o

The numbers were right where I hoped they would be. 

It was 4th gear pull at 8 psi, the second run was right after so it was pretty hot.

 

sorry I didn't save the semen sample to put on the sheet :(
