$1,555.98 today. Around $1,000 over the past 3 months on parts here and there. I think I have everything I need so maybe just buy oil and filter and install everything is all I have left.

I'm excited!!

This turbo is similar to a GT35R with a exhaust A/R .63 for faster spool

I purchased cheep so I could try a few different turbos and when I find the best size, I will purchase that size in the expensive Garrett BB turbo at $1,200~$1,500.

What are you going to do for tuning? Standalone?

Not right yet...Currently running Motronic 5.2 with Lucas 42.8# blue strip, M3 3" MAF. Snow methanol injection. Tuning is not a problem. Might go stand alone for on the fly adjustability

Default Stand-Alone

***Stand-Alone***


Well I've decided I'm going to need a stand-alone to tune this correctly. It's going to be a TEC-GT or a MegaSquirt integrated onto the Motronic M5.2 DME. Both have good and bad.

TEC-GT ~ Good: better tuning, user friendly and it's a TEC. Bad: price way more then I want to spend, not plug and play for M44, A/C control?, OEM Gauges?, OEM sensors? Does not retain any OEM functions.

MegaSquirt/integrated M5.2 ~ Bad: Harder to tune, not as many options as the TEC. Heard not reliable for long drives, burns out parts. Good: Cheep price, Plug and Play, uses all BMW sensors, all gauges work, A/C controls normal, CEL works, DISA works, retains most OEM functions but adds unlimited DIY tuning (just what I need)

I think I'm going MegaSquirt with ignition drivers if I'm able to graft one into the stock DME

So is the MegaSquirt reliable?

I heard from a reliable source he helped tune a car and on a 1,500 mile trip and it left the owner stuck 500 miles away from home. Today I looked around on the web at articles and posts and found people recomending MS increase the watts on certain parts on the unit since they were buring out. The home page and instructions say say several times: MegaSquirt teaches you how to tune (Cool ) and you will learn how to diagnose and repair failures (un-cool ).

Am I just paranoid and all that was growing pains from years ago that have all been worked out?

Is the "Squirt" good enough for lots of daily driving?

I have to have reliablity & like the tec3 but think $3K is just plain stupid

From everything I have read, there are no issues with parts 'burning out'.

Lots of people have run the 6cyl bmw's with MS without issue.

I have not run it yet, I just have everything sitting around waiting for me to get some free time.

John... I lurk on whoretex often & a lot of those boys go megasquirt way.
Not sure if all I hear is good.

Just type 'megasquirt' and some stuff will pop up... but if you go to individual model forums I'm sure you can get more.

***Injector Upgrade 60#***

Getting ready to order injectors for fuel delivery. Mertric recomends Sieman Deka 60lbs. Also this afternoon they are going to recomend a sequential stand-alone that is custom built for my application at a fair price.

Install target date is still first week of July
