Is it possible to have this error because of the AEM?

Other HPF/AEM guys do you have this type of error?

My Ride: E46 M3 Turbo
With that curve you may as well of installed a supercharger. That would feel lazy for a turboed car.

Be close. I don't get why it's so lazy though. It's not a big turbo with a small A/R rear housing. I remember when I had a GT35 on mine which is a 63mm wheel with a 0.82A/R rear I had full boost before 3000rpm. So why is yours so lazy?

Looks like a SC car.

I wonder what the boost control settings are?

I use this car for drag so this is why I don't need full boost to soon.
In the wastegate I use the smallest spring 0.2 BAR.

Big problem, I can't connect any more to the AEM EMS, I receive the following error "Parity error". I was receiving this error right after install but it was only time to time, now it seems permanent - I tryied from 3 different laptops using 3 different cables and the same error is shown each time.
Car is not starting any more with the AEM plugged in, I changed back to old injectors and went NA using only the car ECU.
I have also sent an e-mail to Kirk from HPF, maybe they can help in some way...

What do you guys recommend?

All problems solved with the car.

Today I was at the track and got:
Best ET - 11.88, with 60ft 1.8x and exit speed 199kmh
Best 60ft - 1.7x

With the right suspension setup and weight reduction it should get me a 11.5x

Nice man, but what was the resolution to your problem?

1st place in the national drag championship my group

I'm thinking for some power upgrade:
- Wossner 8.8:1 pistons
- Pauter rods
- Precision 6766 or GT42

What do you guys say?

Do it. Go a GTX42 instead of a GT42.

Thanks guys!
Is it possible to install dual inlet turbines on single inlet manifolds? I can find GTX42 only with dual inlet housing...

Here is the movie form the event:


One crazy-funny vid about Romanian Drag Racing:

I belive you are talking about the twin scrool setup, when you are talking about exhaust parts there is no inlet as inlet is specific to air induction.It's not a good idea to put twin-scrool turbocharger on a normal T4 flange as you will create a lot of backpressure in the manifold because of the middle split of the turbine housing. Bafta!
