After having owned a few open-gated cars, driven friend's cars, and generally been around them; what you are saying is absolutely false lol. It might not be loud inside of a BMW, but it is VERY loud and can be very obnoxious outside.

Not to knock the product; it looks freakin awesome and fastgti is quickly becoming one of the mainstays of the community. But open-vent gates are LOUD. Period. Especially on high-compression engines. "

It would probably be a new thread for that wouldn't it?

I updated people as requested. I can't do anything further. "

Proflyer created the thread Catless pipes and DP Fix--now terrible MPG?.
" Hi everyone, first post here, new to this car. Yes I did a search, I haven't been under a forum rock for the last decade.

I have an 08 335xi sedan. JB4, DCI, 3" VRSF pipes and the VRSF DP fix. I've been running the car with the stock pipes since November with the JB4 and I average 18.5mpg around town on pump gas on tune #1 . Sometimes I play around with e85 and tune 5, but then I've only seen MPGs dip to 17.9 or so.

2 weeks ago I had the 3" VRSF pipes installed and I installed the DP fix a few days later when the CEL came on (surprised me it took that long). It's currently set at "5 o'clock" and the code was cleared using the JB4. The CEL hasn't come back and I do NOT have it set to auto clear, so I 'think' it's set right.

Now, my MPGs are around 14 or 14.5 if I baby it. I honestly expected an MPG increase with the new pipes, or at least things to stay the same. This large change has me surprised. I'm curious if I maybe need to use a different tune on the JB4 or if I perhaps need to turn 'up' or 'down' the DP fix? Maybe the DP fix makes it run really rich? I did a search but couldn't really find much, it's hard to search short words on the forums as I'm sure we all have experienced.

Thanks all! Great site (and I can even get to it at work) "

Yes understood, the current sample map being referenced in the OP the Load to Torque Limit table's "Y axis'' was reverted back to stock in the OTS E30 map, the base values remained untouched which are stock values.

Further more, the "Requested Torque Limit (Driver)" was increase by about 12%, all other torque table calibrations remained untouched in the OTS E30

This being said, are these changes enough to cause a deviation from the true numbers ? "

Ah, I understand. Sorry, that wasn't clear from the first post.

Well, if you can find someone in the Madison, WI area that has a 335is and a few minutes to spare, I'll gladly hook 'em up to my system and get the ZB number for you. "

Most ECU modules use NCSExpert to update coding once the module is reprogrammed but of course the DME is different. Your best bet would be to use BBFlash to update the coding with a proper map.
