Thank you for coming in.

So when will we see a very good to perfect AFR number while at WOT on this car running your stage 2 kit?

Well, misfires seemingly went away... for 250 miles. Then came back on cylinder 1, 3, and two "random misfires". I will need to get RRT to look at it again to see if they think there is anything else from a mechanical standpoint that needs to be done.. but we've gone to the end of the world here on a mechanical side..

Well, I'm sure they will figure it out.. I just guess it has to be remote tuned at this point.. given we've swapped out just about everything else.

For what it's worth, i'm idling (and cruising) around 14.5 AFR (according to the prosport gauge). Does that seem about right?

The thought was to get rid of all the misfires and ensure that we had everything mechanically flawless prior to running it for an hour plus on the dyno.. trying to help out the motor as much as we can

This "Problem" is starting to look AA tune related, I can't think of anything else (parts) you could replace.

Edit: I guess you could send all 6 injectors out to RC Fuel Injection for Service/Cleaning. $144 plus shipping, it wouldn't be a bad idea if they've never been cleaned. If there's a problem, they'll tell you.

The pressure from the pump "seems" fine based on pressure readouts... the strange part is that these misfires aren't occurring at higher rpms (where fuel pump could become more of an issue).. they are between 1800-2300 RPMs... at which the OEM pump should be more than adequate.

No doubt you can attain that number on the dyno when the tune is fixed. Guess Active won't appropriately be stepping up to the plate, good thing you're close to Frank Smith so he can get you straight...

Not on the dyno yet. SES has disappeared and not come back though despite 300+ miles driven.

Car is at RRT for new tires, Vorshlag camber plates, lowering, and then hopefully dyno tune.

Will be at Bimmerfest and RRT will be on hand to answer any questions.
