" I've been using Motul Xcess 5w40 for the last 1.5 years, with change intervals around 6-7, and have been very happy. Nice to see a blackstone confirming what I thought. No oil cooler or oil catch can on my end though.
Recommended by some local porsche guys (my main techs), they have been using it in their race cars for years. "

Please read my post above, as I think you could be the most helpful at this point. I have the reversers. They are experts at x86/ARM assembly and they can learn any other assembly if necessary. I can provide them with all the details for them to look at and see if finding an exploit on the boot loader or tuning values is possible. If so, then perhaps we can crowdsource some of the expense, which I do not see costing a ton to be honest. These guys are quite cheap considering their capabilities. They just help me beat 2048bit network comms encryption by reversing the algorithm and creating my own server issuing my own private key for an online mmo. "

Hack is a very broadly used term. But to discover the private key? Its essentially impossible to do and a waste of time without massive massive amounts of luck. I'm going to take a grain of sand and throw it onto a beach, kick some other sand over it, let the tides come in and out a few times and then tell you to go find it without telling you which beach or even if you're on the right side of the planet. This is not exact math but it gives you the sense of futility involved. Encryption isn't tough because it points a lot of guns at you or anything 'secure' in that sense. It is not secure at all really, especially if you find out the password. It only serves the purpose of security because it inundates you with choices. I believe it has 1024 bit RSA signature, but I'm not sure. I don't think 1024 RSA has ever been hacked by the way, and there are research teams that go out and try to do just that, to be the first ones.

[QUOTE=Unklejoe;584136]If (and that's a big IF) the TCU ever gets "hacked", it certainly isn't going to be because someone ran a brute force crack on the key.

That will likely take many human lifetimes to crack using the fastest computers. Who knows how long the key is.

It will likely be done using some other exploit. "

" It makes them pricks because other sports cars are easily tunable.

Corvette...Mustang...EVO....STi... all of those cars are more likely to be owned by a dick head than the average BMW yet the manufacturers don't seem to have many problems dealing with it.

All of those cars are easily flashed.

What BMW should do is allow them to be flashed but implement a method of detecting it. But that's all a dream. "

triggz created the thread Wedge Log vs V8Bait Log.
" Since nobody wants to post a log of Wedge's flash showing all 6 cylinders I decided to show the results.

Car is running FBO+100%Meth+94 Oct.

I asked Wedge for a Pump/Meth map and he sent me a map stating 12.5* of timing. I figured it's aggressive but safe based on my mods. I logged it and it looked great, BEFORE 6cylinder logging was available.

Tested it out again and the results were not impressive. First off, it clearly shows the map is targeting close to 14* of timing which is way too much for 94/Meth. It's safe to say you need E85/Meth/FBO to run this type of tune.

its not an opinion its a fact! A simple way to see it is in your fuel economy, single digits to get the car rolling and move all that weight, once cruising it gets normal economy because the cars own weight is not as much as burden on the engine at that point. Same as when you push a car by hand, hard to start but once rolling the weight is not as much of a factor. "

So in your mind something that rides the CAN feed and interecepts/relays certain values (real or not) back to the TCU...that's the more viable solution?

It does seem clear that at this point, there isn't any substantive path forwards towards actual read/write ability on the TCU. And we still don't have a particularly strong understanding of how it interacts with the DME. "

If I told the dealer I planned to supercharge and wanted to build the motor they would void it all right then and there. They encourage you to buy their 'Performance Parts' rather than going to the aftermarket. They just want money. They certainly do not give a damn about giving you the best options to modify your car you own.

They have gotten worse about this, not better. I'd love for BMW to actually encourage modding but their behavior and own parts division is designed now to keep maximum profit for them and actually to cut the aftermarket out.
BMW builds a product and they guarantee that product against defects for 4 years / 50,000 miles. They can't guarantee that it will continue to function properly when a random assortment of aftermarket parts have been added onto it or when the calibration of the engine computer has been altered by any random guy. How does that make them pricks? They can continue to offer warranty coverage on their own Performance Parts because those parts were developed alongside the original car and have been tested just as thoroughly as the stock car and are known to work properly.

If you build & boost a motor, you're absolutely insane if you expect the original warranty coverage to still apply. "

CM fucked up my order 3 times resulting in 4 months of downtime and lots of out of pocket for what should have been a simple one day job.

That said, they covered parts and of course not labor.

Ive reviewed it before on this forum. It works well, I have a dual bronze disk version. Holds plenty of torque, no slip. I hardly stall it but valets and mechanics regularly do.

Chatter is there:
