The turbo manifolds are already coated. No need to coat the downpipe as it is behind the turbo which is under the car.

I will PM both of you a link to the prices on our site. We can't post up prices on these threads (forum rules)

John made more progress today. He found out that one of the O2 sensors was not heating up. Certain codes cause the ProEFI to not control the engine correctly and factory O2 sensor codes are a biggie. John is installing another factory O2 sensor today and it will be back on the dyno.

John removed the last o2 code, was driving the Z4M and making dyno pulls however the car would cut the throttle on each pull. He found a possible glitch in the harness or wiring. It appears the DSC is not receiving the proper signal so John and Jason are going to work on the pin-out today to determine how to quickly resolve the issue.

Thanks. John traced all the wires and they trace through correctly. We are now checking ot see if it's in the CAN bus. ProEFI is providing lots of help. It's the first Z4M they've done so there will be a learning curve.

we're used to it.

Even ESS, who say they sold about 30-40 kits (IIRC), don't feel like making the VT2-550 or the VT3 upgrade available in the USA ((

John has been working with ProEFI on this. We are now putting in a signal conditioner on the crank sensor wire. Apparently the ProEFI ECU might be changing the resistance on this wire causing the DME to cut the power on the car.
