Thx...will do.

I am not losing this much boost but i am losing about 2Psi when i get over 5200rpm. Does anyone know why this would happen? Im running dps and meth . I can hold 17psi but once it gets to that rpm boost goes below the target of the tune.

Hey, is this a problem with the N55 as well? I am having the boost issues. I did some pulls with Map 5 on and hit 11 tops, and tried out map 2 and was under 10 the whole time. Im 2011 135i FBO JB4. I just checked all of my connections and had no issues, although I HATE how the charge pipe has some wiggle wiggle to it.

stock CP does not hold the power of a stock car either
