I wonder who that was ?

Were you guys able to confirm an issue with Magic Pro on other 5GHz WiFi networks?

If you use my stock dyno runs as a reference you got the advertised 40hp and 60lb-ft gains.

143hp, 217lb-ft on Mustang dyno


148hp on Dynojet

So has anyone drained their def tank since the DPF SCR delete??
I have a stage one tune from mission and I was wondering has anyone drained there adblue tank. Plus has anyone experience white smoke from there exhaust after getting on there 328d on the highway? Again I have a stage one tune with the down pipe with mission tuning

I think the white smoke is the def fluid... I haven’t lost any coolant or oil...

Will do some videos and followup later. Changing bumpers out for some M bumpers now so she's being worked on.
Did you remove your DEF tank? If so, are you able to do a dual exhaust setup now? I believe the DEF tank is what's preventing N/A F30d/31d from installing dual exhaust...I love how my $80K CAD BMW has a single exhaust while $20-40K cars have dual

I haven't pulled the tank yet. That is on the list. But based on when I had the rear bumper replaced with the msport one I would likely concur with your conclusion. My exhaust was replaced from Turbo back and has a small resonator so adding a second exhaust tip wouldn't be that difficult. Would just need a different lower valance on the rear bumper and done.

^ Thank you!

I ask any N/A 328d owners that have done a dual exhaust setup to please post here.

If alphabet delete is the only way to retro a dual exhaust, I'm even more convinced to do a tune.

I feel the same way. I want duals bad. Also a tune and delete doesn't sound like the worst

Curious, what exactly is needed to do an OBD Tune where we would not have to send our DDEs to GA?

They send you a laptop/tablet (can use your own too) and flashing tool to interface to the car. First you pull your existing car files/data and send it to them, then they'll send you a file with the tune to flash.

Any long term feedback on the JRstage 1 and 2 tunes for the 328d?
- MPG?
- Urea Usage?
- 0-60 time improvements or other benchmarks
Just got one and was wondering if I should stay conservative with stage 1 or get the stage 2

Has anyone with a stage 3 done intercooler and meth yet? I’d be interested to see Dyno numbers I gotta imagine with those two you’d be pushing over 250 to the wheels no problem and closer to 450tq

The fueling system is the limiting factor here. Intercooler is the same one used on euro 3 liter 330d.

I'd just like to make a few comments regarding limitations on the power-train. The transfer case is already a weak-link if you own an x-drive vehicle, they go out anywhere from 30-50k miles with normal power output and is roughly a $6,000 repair out of warranty.

Secondly, ZF 8HP45 Transmission is rated at 450nm torque from a gas engine, or 500nm torque in diesel applications, that is roughly 370 ft/lbs.

In summary there is a lot of strain that will be taking place on your vehicle and unless it's a lease or something I'd advise not modding it more than their stage one, or any companies "stage 1" power output.
