Lol, my argument was always that we already knew what curves were best/safest for the engine from the cobb guys (like myself for a stint), so transplanting those timing targets to jb4 cars always gave similar results with better boost control and more safety features. Cylinder 1 logging wasn't the whole story but was sufficient to me in evaluating problems and when used for failsafes. Testing for limits on one cylinder on a dyno, it's impossible to know if you found mbt or just hit a level where timing is getting removed you can't see, but at that point it's at the peak anyway and a few corrections (seen or unseen) always seemed relatively safe to me, I dunno. But having all 6 now really is incredible, I don't feel inclined to pull the Cobb out of my sisters car to test things I want the jb4 to do first anymore lol.

For novel applications like your setup Tony 6 cylinder logging was necessary info to have if you wanted to push it, which you did, I think you and D were right on with that. Cobb worked out well for you guys, tons of work and new tricks later but it pushed things forward on their end as well. I'll admit I didn't think cobb could even handle such a custom setup looking for as much boost as you needed, but it seems like they've really came through. The hard road, though.

" Hey guys,

with the success of our LSD's (and upcoming final drives), we were interested in introducing more of our product range to the BMW market, and was just wondering if there would be a general interest in our other products:

- 1pc Chromoly Racing Flywheels. Made from imported Japanese SAE 4140 Steel. These are Forged, Double Tempered and Super Sub-Zero treated for unsurpassed toughness, with a proprietary surface treatment for increased surface hardness


- Hyper-Series Clutch Kits. Lightweight Stage 1 clutch kit with 6-puck sprung carbon metallic disc, coupled with our Racing Flywheel. Rated to approx. 400lbft. Image to come

- Spherical-joint Front/Rear Camber and Rear Trailing Arms. These use our specially designed "sealed" spherical bearings, which have self-lubricating teflon lined inners (so do not need lubricating) and a genuine 100% seal from the elements; not just a cheap rubber seal that can be ripped off. Not only do these allow for full 360deg movement, essential in a race environment, they can also be used safely on the road without fear of binding due to the elements. Image to come "

I don't think there's any conspiracy here. If your comment is stupid and people keep saying it's stupid... Well then it's probably stupid. Please keep whining there's a lot more "cry baby" pictures on google I can post "

It seems like every discussion turns to garbage now a days. I can't tell you how many full responses I have written to just delete and not post because it's just useless arguing with Sticky and seriously not worth my time. I have better things to do than get into endless arguments which always seem to end with S65 is the best engine ever, you are poor if you can't build it and that is your problem.

Time for the neg rep machine to kick in. "

Thanks, I will have to look that up. That is exactly what I was asking for was data from other cars. "
