Agreed, Nick would be awesome! But I don't think Basar wants to ship his car to Florida.
He's a good friend of mine.

The HPF Z4M Turbo System will be complete soon and all stages will be produced. Here are more details. We are working with Basar to get him the new EMS, harness and base map.

Here's a thread with more details....

Hpf kirk. Your attitude is ALL wrong.
Bas has been waiting for a LONG time, people being sceptical about the timeline is unfortunately going to happen. This is a public thread after all that invites opinions, however mis_guided they may be.

I can't wait to see this work out for you bas!!!!! I'm pretty certain this is going to be sorted very soon with the new people on board!!!

Momentary lapse of professional I apologize to everyone for it. I have been working with Basar for quite some time now, which is where my frustration comes from. I know how he feels and I cant wait until we get AEM setup figured out for Basar so him and Providence can tear up Turkey in their turbo S54s.

Thanks Chris, i heard that John is coming to HPF tomorrow. Is there any possiblity for you to make a video? It would be nice to see John Reed working on BMW Also on a HPF car.

Did he complete the harness ? Why exactly is he coming for.

Should i be expecting to see my car run in December ?

Thanks bro thank you for feeling my pain.

I want to make a summary of my situation.

There wasnt any plug and play ecu for Z4M and so i wanted to put M3 ecu on my car to use the plug and play ecu of HPF. So i have bought E46 M3 ecu, keys and EWS 2 days later on e46fanatics.com (05-05-2011) Jason (Pro-efi) said


''Anybody who wants to get me a Z4M to do a kit on, I'll give you a smoking deal! Just PM me or email me at jason@proefi.com ''

So i returned the ecu, key and EWS because i thought it was a great news and i was not going to have to work on E46 M3 ecu to work on Z4M.

Then on 05-20-2011 MarcusLSD replied

'' We're bringing the car down this Saturday. ''

That saturday was 05-22-2011.... Friend of Marcus have given his Z4M to Pro-efi to make a plug and play kit so then they were going to sell a ''Z4M plug and play ecu''



I have received the ''Pro-Efi plug and play Z4M kit'' NEXT YEAR ! @05-18-2012 and it was not working. It was also missing igniters and pins. I have paid extra for those but still Pro-efi didn't work and now Jason doesnt take the ecu back claiming that HPF was going to develop and complete the ''kit''. (He didn't take the responsibility and blamed on HPF)

Then i waited for 5 months for Pro-Efi to solve this issue NOTHING HAPPENED! SO i have bought e46 m3 Ecu, key and EWS once again....

Then 7 days later Chris told me that John Reed was going to build the harness and the tune so due to reputation of John Reed i agreed to put my E46 M3 ecu project on hold once again.

Right now everything excluding injectors are installed on car. If i can get a working ecu and the harness my car is good to go. (Didnt install the injectors because i am still using stock ecu.)


Right now it has been 1 year and 5 months since i have been waiting for a plug and play ecu for my Z4M. I wish i had gone to my M3 ecu route.

I have installed the turbo kit on my car 05-26-2012 and since then i cannot use my car. So it has been 6 months... This was the worst part and i hope it ends soon.

Thats it for now lets see how it will go with John Reed. Such a simple thing costed me 1 and a half year.

Just wanted to clear up this little piece of wrong information...Trevor drove his Z4M to Lutz in Florida...where it has been waiting for Alpha to tune...and Trevor hasn't driven his Z4M for over a year now.

We haven't given up on ProEFI in the Z4M yet.

Has there been any update from ProEFI on their Z4M plug and play kit? I thought Lutz had it running and tuned on ProEFI?

Don't you work for Jason @ Pro-EFI?

Their car is as far as ours... No full throttle as far as I know...

Maybe Andrew or his fabricator can chime in on this?

Basar,

It's tough to see your frustration manifested in this summary.

This is a clear example of the difference between an "intention", and a "result". Unfortunately, many people want something so badly that they get the 2 confused. This happens through 3 areas:
  • Product Developement
  • Product Sales
  • Product assessment by the customer

During product development, the people involved are so focused on their goal that this is all they talk about. The sales people hear this, and that's what they sell. The Customer hears both the product development goals, and the sales pitch, believes they are seeing congruency of product development, and then literally buys into the goal. However, there is a difference between intention, and the finished result of going through the development process.

In my profession this difference is often separated by 10s of millions of dollars, and we don't respond as patiently as you have Basar.

Seriously.......

I'm going to say this one last time, because the entire HPF team seems to have reading comprehension issues.

I DO NOT WORK FOR PRO-EFI

I HAVE NEVER WORKED FOR PRO-EFI

I NEVER WILL WORK FOR PRO-EFI

I haven't worked in the automotive industry in over 5 years!!!!!

So, please stop asking if I work for Pro-EFI.
