E36 M3 should be fun on track, it's too bad we didn't get the Euro-spec version here in the states though. :cry:

Curious to know how the GTI compares on track. My track day dream car is the Z3M...

Anyone doing the Dub Deliverance event at Dominion Raceway with Trackdaze this year? At $89 for a full trackday, it's an amazing deal.

I'm with you on the fact that the proportional gain and integral gain are fighting each other, creating the fluctuation in the process value. By gain, I meant integral gain being way too high, which...

If you slowly press the throttle, does it still happen? Mine was mainly happening when I floored it while cruising in 3rd or 4th gear. If i really slowly pressed the gas, it didn't happen as much. I...

To be fair, my issue with boost fluctuation went away with the Stage 2 v2.4 file. I think the issue is the gain value on the PID loop for the N75 valve is way too high. This causes boost setpoint...

You can use a refractometer to measure your coolant mix frost rating. I use this one (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01CQVHTCW?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd_title) from Amazon.

Or you could just drain...

That's a great price for all those parts. Putting down Stage 2 power with no slipping is a great feeling. :D

Like I mentioned, I would definitely check your water / coolant mixture ratio. That can have a large impact on heat dissipation. Also, what oil are you running?

I wish I could answer the oil temp question, but I don't have an oil temp sensor installed. It's on my list of things to do, but I'd like to interface with the ECU so I can log it on my lap timer.

Uh, I've spent more than that on an engine for a 40+ year old car. :laugh: I don't typically hold the age of a car against it when making these decisions. But it's all about perspective I guess.

Ooohhh, my bad. I've ran the STR-600 fluid years ago but switched over to Motul RBF600. The published specs showed dry/wet boiling points similar to RBF600, but I never really got to verify that.
