I ordered the Stage 2 LPFP from Fuel-it and the one that came was missing a connector:





Contacted Steve and showed him, he said it looked like an F10 pump assembly. I ended up sending the new one back along with the one from my car and they just upgraded it and refunded the difference and core cost. Quick turnaround, very easy to work with. Great folks over at at Fuel-It.

No need for a JB4 or anything, it just works.

Well it seems like it's the HPFP the tuner was talking about, not LPFP. Any experience with that?

Reading threads on the topic i'm seeing talks about new upcoming solutions for HPFP upgrades, but prices in the range of several k$

Now that being said i don't think i really need more power now, ok it's raining but i kept breaking traction all the time when pushing the throttle a little. I'm glad i've got an LSD.

Not yet, I have PI installed and am hoping to get that tuned in. Maybe if the HPFP costs come down I'll re-visit that.

2013 AH3 M
- Basically stock:
- Muffler Delete
- K&N Drop-in

Located in Virginia

Anyone at the 60k Mile Marker? Getting ready to do my Transmission Service which seems to only be needed on the AH3s and maybe M series?

Looking to do a BM3 in the future would you guys suggest a charge pipe upgrade prior to a Flash Tune? Or is there a safe Stage 1 upgrade from BM3

I upgraded the chargepipe just to be safe. There were countless forums with people with the jb4 and their chargepipe blew. I recently emailed ptf regarding the AH3 and they said there are going to work on it a lot soon and currently testing on some AH3's. Currently they only have a stage 2 map but I think they'll have a stage 1 map soon.

Very nice, I feel like I should just go ahead and upgrade the Charge Pipe just to be on the safe side of things. I would really like a Stage 1 tune, not looking to do anything crazy with this car seeing it is my daily.

Within 10 minutes of installing my JB4 some time ago, I blew the charge pipe. ALWAYS upgrade it before adding more boost. The good thing is, I was close enough to home that I drove back on just the electric motor. Yet another reason to love the hybrid.

So ive downloaded and flashed my map from bm3, however it seems all over the place. Sometimes i can put my foot down and get nothing barley moves. sometimes i put my foot down and it takes about 5 secs to kick in. Feels really gradual through the rev range untill about 6k revs when it suddenly gets a kick almost like the electric motor is kicking in.

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

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...

you must have been the other guy they were talking about when we were tryin to flash my car.
I was having problems with not being able to flash the car because of our dme, we seem to be rare on that front too.

Im only running the stage one, but feel like there is some work to be done here.
