That is exactly how I feel, a bit of a bittersweet moment. I'm thinking either something was getting grounded out and changing its orientation fixed this? Or maybe, as some people have suggested, by reseating them I fixed my problem? Just instead of reseating mine on the bank 1 side I did so on bank 2.Thats really odd that it fixed itself. Kind of worrying I'll bet but at least it's OK for now.
Wait. Have you ever opened and cleaned the solennoids and replaced the o rings????? This is absolutely #1. IMO the text presented with the VANOS test is based on the engineers best guess when the motor and test system was designed- they though it more like the engine was mistimed than a solenoid went bad.I just ran the VANOS test. Looks like mine are way off. Not sure bank 2 even finished correctly.
Any ideas on where to start? Car seems to run fine, by my butt dyno anyway.
Hey Dave,Hey Dave is your car now fully mended? :M5launch:
The airstrip event was incredible. There were so many ridiculous cars there, from your "run of the mill" dyno queen GTR's to a half dozen twin turbo Gallardos (amongst many other cars of course). Anyway, I made 5 runs throughout the day, one by myself and 4 against other cars.Dave - Did you make the airstrip attack last weekend? How'd the car hold up?
My best trap speed of the day was 134 mph against the Maserati actually. To put that in perspective, my friend's z06 that makes 565 rwhp ran a best of 156 mph in the half mile. It's hard to tell in the video but if you were racing someone else they didn't want you to launch hard but to get a rolling start before going WOT.Sweet! What kind of speeds were you hitting?
