I don't know if it's just my car, but i'm x-drive and the traction control light will come on and cut power on me (even though I can't actually get the wheels to spin with x-drive). So I alway drive with off and have no issues with traction. Ironically, it's actually hazardous for me to leave traction control on because if I commit to a move based on my power level and all of a sudden there's no power, it's a really bad situation. Long way of saying try driving without traction control, you may be alright.
Yeah, I tried that. As it is, it normally cuts boost in first gear due to traction. I've tried turning it part way off and fully off, with no change. I also noticed weird boost spikes, such as 19 psi on a 15 psi tune.

So, I replaced my boost solenoids. On map 5, it holds 17 psi. With new turbos and new solenoids, I dropped my 0-60 from 5.4 to 4.5. I still need tires. I think the car is fast enough for now. Now I can just focus on getting the rest of the car cleaned up. I have an M Sport rear bumper to replace my broken stock one, and I might eventually do M3 suspension arms and sway bars. I suppose I could also set aside some money to build that 408 stroker for my truck... I think I'm coming to terms with my HP addiction.

So I installed an intercooler. I had blown the oring on the flex pipe coming off the outlet, so I figured I'd upgrade the pipe and the intercooler. The car is definitely faster. Now I need to use map 6 and tune it a bit. It overshoots boost targets and I don't want to blow it up.

Because your settings are all screwed up.

I give the turbos 3000 miles before they go boom.

Edit: I get this information from my homies car that lasted about 4000 Kmโ€™s. Mine have about 1500kmโ€™s and they rattle. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Attached some crappy Snapchat quality SSโ€™s for proof. @RuskiRacer can attest too ๐Ÿ˜‚

Boost leak? You mean 328i mode. Nope. Still working on it. But if they're going to blow, I'll probably rebuild my stock turbos now.

I've had the car for just over 3 months, and I've put on over 7k miles๐Ÿ˜‚
