Wescuddles replied to the thread BimmerBoost Flash questions.
" Kind of a thread jack but do you need to run e85 all the time to run the bms backend flash? Or will it be fine if you only run e85 every once in a while (once every 4 tanks).

Thanks

edit: what benefits are there to running the backend flash? "

ahahahhaah i was wondering if that was the powerchip you were talking about

you know he's still around? going by 'wayno bes' blowing up diesel's (and A45 AMG's) now.

http://performanceforums.com/forums/...ight=powerchip if you want some top lol's.

still, anyone who's ever been related to 'wayno' has a lot of work to do to clear their name, unfortunately.. "

musc replied to the thread BimmerBoost Flash questions.
" As a standalone flash the OFT flashes will work fine though I wouldn't go aggressive without any great way to log other than the BT software. I would probably advise against using BMS backend flashes as a standalone because the load targets and WGDC changes were designed to work with a JB4, not as a standalone.

I have a few friends that run the OFT Stage 1 flash without the tablet. I flashed them with the BB software/BT cable. For basically a free flash (aside from BT cable cost), I was pretty impressed. At one of our dyno days it actually on par with a JB4 G5 on Map 2 with DPs, DCI. The OFT Stage 1 was otherwise stock down to the airbox. "

When they are working as they are supposed to work, yes they do perform the task they are their for, quicker spool, and more top end. But from what we have seen, they are slowly getting phased out. Ford used them for a while, now they do not in the newest stuff. The ford 6.0 diesel VGT was a disaster, they get stuck often, causing low power conditions. VW used them in just about every turbocharged vehicle they made, they used Garrett unit, we just upgraded two 2015 units for a customer in South Africa, the Golf R's and the new GTI's both went away from the VGT and are no longer garrett unit. Just about everything we see if going away from them into more small frame Twin Scroll design. They really are that problematic, they are MANY small moving parts that are sitting directly in the exhaust, a lot of these are on diesels, that soot and exhaust just coat everything and they stop moving. I would not be surprised to see them gone soon. Porsche still uses them on the 997's. We have yet to see one, so they are most likely a better design, but we have seen about 10 different designs from differing manufactures, some are simple and much less prone to failure, some are just plain bad designs. I think the electric turbo to help spool is where the future would be heading over VGT. "

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!!
yep, pretty much how those threads seem to go, facts take a long time to come out haha

most people think mobil 1 is PAO (IV) based.. not many are mainly ester based, redline is, as well as penrite 10tenths is IV/V.. possibly RP as well.. quick google shows motul xcess should be IV/V as well? 300v i believe is full ester. "
