You're right. For some reason I had it the other way around in my head. Thanks!

I'm one of the cars they're testing on at the moment. Just got them some logs this afternoon and am awaiting feedback on next steps. I will say, this tune is highlighting the other areas of my car that need work. DSC off isn't gonna work when my camber is so far off that I've worn through the inner strips of the tires its been riding on. Time for a coilover setup with some camber adjustments and new tires...
Hey I saw that you are testing for BM3. Do you think it's worth it to buy it right now? How long do you think it's gonna take for them to make a map for the AH3?

does anyone know what parameters i need to be using when im capturing datalogs?

Subscribed and would also like to know how the maps are doing.. Also are they compatible with the JB4 as i am now too much used to the JB4 and it runs the meth also.

I would buy as soon as support is there and some testing is done.

Thanks

You are the first I have heard of running meth in a AH3!

Hounstly shocking, there is no actual stage one map labeled up as AH3 compataible. The map I have is all over the place in regards to boost and intergrating the electrical motor. They are working on it, but there's no communication as to how long it will take. I kinda feel like I've spent a whole lot of money on nothing which is partly my fualt for jumping in head first with out and talking to people. Considering I already had the car mapped which worked, just to aggressive. Now I've resulted to running stock as the bm3 is undrivable and unpredictable.

Oh, well that sucks. I was really excited that BM3 made a map for the AH3. Guess I'll hold off until they get things figured out. Every time I email them about the AH3 they say there working on it but don't have a time for release.

I was running Meth (boost juice)+Jb4 when I made 455 WHP on the dyno. Haven't seen those numbers in awhile...hopefully I'll get back there soon.



Although, I also blew my stock turbo and then later snapped the driveshaft, so maybe not the best idea...

snapped the driveshaft?

I am also on pure stage 2 and meth should I be worried about the driveshaft?

Did you upgrade to a better one.

Here are my mods for now :

pure stage 2 turbo with inlet and GFB DV
jb4
bms meth kit with a single CM10
BMS intake
Fuel it LPFP kit
straight through exhuast no cat
ER charge pipes
wagner evo 2 intercooler

I think meth was one of the best mods on the car after JB4 and they integrate so flawlessly. If you have JB4 get their meth kit you will love it. Been running it for more than a year now.

Could you post or message me the last 7 digits of your vin?

I am curious if AH3 in your area of the world were counted in the EU builds or a different sequence and that will give me a starting point.

Seems your Car was having issues on that picture. I assume AFR on the lower part? It all looks pretty wonky

An OTS doesn't work well with JB4. Tried it on my non-AH3 (PWG). You need a custom BEF but that can be derived from the OTS once finished.

IIRC there were some driveshafts that were wielded, not bolted and probably weaker. Still, a stage 2+ AH3 with meth, port injection, and e-boost is bound to make serious torque.

Honestly, if you have the old design, I would be worried. Mine was luckily covered by extended warranty, and it took the diff with it. Old style is on the right, which is what I broke: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=26_0272

Eh, I don't really trust that AFR reading. Some wonky tailpipe sensor that had to be propped up with whatever was laying around and if it moved the wrong way just stopped working.

What date was your car built as you had one of the older style in a 2013 MY.

Were you able to find a way to code these elements? No AH3/330e has been able to yet as far as I know.
