Haha they go alright for a parts bin special, and don't look too bad also
isnt a 1m an n54 and therefore have those potential issues

Perhaps it is that this 1M has had a few things already under warranty
- rear bar respray
- front wheel replaced
- both side mirrors cracks in housing
- door seal

Parts bin special
any though on getting a proper track setup? or are you happy with the stockers

Yes correct, but what I was stipulating was I haven't heard of any 1M owners having these types of mechanical issues (but its common with 135/335's)

It's most likely because of their later build date they would have ironed out those issues. The injector recall was late 2010 and 1Ms were built from 2011. The HPFP would have also been revised many times by the time 1Ms were built.

Well apparently a new injector part # was recently released (Jan 2103 by memory) so the new Piezo design must mean that an improvement was required?

Just have to add that after a country trip up to Hunter to see a client today, this Cobb tune is insanely good.. So refined, yet brutal. Thank you Cobb

I can't remember Joe's boost curve on the recent dyno chart if he ran with the same map. Perhaps he can chime in here.

Could it be that P3 gauge a little too "sensitive" reading the boost value?
So installed the Stage 1 aggressive + FMIC. 20 psi on P3

May go back to just stage 1 aggressive which gives 18.5 psi

So I wasn't reading it wrong then.
Should we ask Cobb about running 20+ psi on N54 engines? any potential problem?

No way I want to run over 18.5psi. That's >4 over stock. Changed back to just S1.

Cobb was in BETA back when I went with Evolve. Evolve is a great tune, but my car had problems with it. Cobb now out of BETA, so I went with Cobb.

The Evolve is a great tune, but Cobb is better IMO. It gets to boost far more quickly. It is also way easy to manage maps etc. and has great functionality such as logging etc.

Yes, been keeping an eye on it. All tight. It is a bit tricky getting a secure fit to the throttle body, but once on it is very secure. Have to ensure rubber o-ring is in place and the wire clip insert correct direction.

New Ferodo DS2500's on the front with new rotors. Initial bite is not as good, but when they do bite it is strong with no fade.

Not convinced that the vibrations through the brake pedal are gone though!?!

Also changed diff and transmission oils... What came out didn't look great when I poured samples onto paper towel. Consider changing more often if the car is driven hard.... $400

Hey Ian, how long do your rears light up in 2nd when you plant the VO? Mine seem to spin for ever, thinking the rears may be getting a bit tired. (Pardon the pun)

Is this when just going straight or around corners?

Going straight I find I actually don't have any traction issues except in first. Maybe a slight chirp in second depending on the road surface.

I don't mean 2nd gear hard change. Straight line, Smooth change into second , start to pick up torque, then WOT. Spins continuallg, until change into third.
