    Ive just found this thread after searching the internet for turbo'd s50's and was quite shocked to find one in the uk that is so similar to what mine is like atm, the inlet manifold is identical!!

    I was just about to cut a piston in half to check how much it could be machined, but after reading a few posts linked from this one it would appear that isnt a good idea. (I was going to remove 2.5mm to reduce CR to around 8.6:1)

    Looks like i'll be ordering JE pistons.

    What management have you used and who is the best person to map it in this country?
    Any advice would be great!

    Thanks!

    I used a VEMS ecu as it does what is needed and is cheap.

    I´d be the best person to map it.

    Any more info on Vems and personal experience?

    I've looked at smt6 and megasquirt so far and it seems that megasquirt is my best option as I can remove the Maf out of the setup.

    Cost? Can this be used on its own with the non vanos?

    Sorry 100's of questions!

    I´ve tuned TONS of vems ecus on forced induction BMW´s so far. And I like it .

    Any standalone will allow you to remove the MAF.

    Cost is 600quid , You can use the vems ecu with or without vanos or whatever you like.

    What about SMT6?

    I've spoken to a lad on here who is using SMT6 and a map sensor (he speaks highly of smt6).

    I´ve made turbo bmw´s work with SMT6. But then again, I´d be able to tune the OEM ecu these days just as well, I couldn´t do the same years ago.

    I'm assuming its much easier than standalone.

    Looking at using the same setup as hamadhayyat on the forum who has a non vanos turbo running smt6 and a cosworth map sensor.

    well standalone is easier to be honest. But it´s all about the power level you want.

    I´d be tuning a smt6 and oem ecu to make the best of the combo

    I've sent you a pm. Don't you just love it when you get emails like this:


    Hi Jack,

    There is a fellow in Europe who has a great plug and play standalone system. http://www.gstuning.net/ Gunni is the guy I know of there. He should be able to help you much better than we can at the moment. I know it is a little more than you want to spend, but it may be the easiest route to go.
