BMW 550d F series triple turbo!!!

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 by andy

Yes! You did read that correctly. The brand new BMW 550d F10/11 is a triple turbo diesel torque producing beast to be reckoned with.

With the badge of 550d you would expect a 5.0l engine under the hood. However, as with a number of manufacturers nowadays, the badge on the outside does not line up with the engine under the hood.

The 3.0d straight six engine that has been a year after year one of the best diesel engines available on the market. However, the engine does have a little trick up its sleeve to give it the edge over other models in the range that the 550 badge implies.

This is done through the brilliantly designed triple turbo setup. Effectively taking the already brilliant twin turbo engine from the 535d and bolting another turbo onto it. Obviously, that does make it sound a lot easier than it would have been to develop.

The system works with a small turbo working almost instantly in order to reduce any initial lag as much as possible at very low rpm. This turbo is very quickly pushed aside by the large turbo in this setup that takes over between 1500rpm – 1800rpm and then pulls through to the top end of the power band.

Traditionally this would have been enough for a diesel engine, but BMW wanted more, and this was achieved by putting the third turbo into the mix. This final turbo is designed to pre compress the air before the big turbo to help keep the big turbo running longer than the standard twin turbo setup.

For the added boost pressure the vehicle is running the fuel pressure had to be increased to make sure the fuel could get into the engine with all the extra boost pressure running through it.

The fuel rail pressure was increased from 1800bar up to a staggering 2200bar of pressure. Of course all of this meant that a little strengthening had to take place within the engine itself in order to safely accommodate the new power, boost output and rail pressure requirements.

All of this strengthening has left the engine with plenty more to give over its stock output.

Taking the KTAG bench reading from the EDC17 ECU’s inside, we here at Viezu Technologies were able to extract the an additional 130nm of torque and 45hp increase from the engine with our Viezu Remap.

Taking into account OEM torque requests, thresholds, injected fuel quantity requirements for varying desired torque level outputs, the Viezu ECU tune was able to deliver a smooth, refined and typically BMW drive from the vehicle, whilst delivering the fantastically strong performance increase and driveability refinements that the Viezu remap software always delivers.

All of this is in line with standard operating parameters of the OEM ECU and data as not to push the vehicle beyond is safe capabilities.

Ferrari F430 Exhaust Manifold Replacement

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 by andy

Ferrari F430 Exhaust Manifold Replacement

This stunning very low mileage Ferrari F430 came to us with the common F430 manifold cracking issue.
Unfortunately due to the Ferrari F430 manifold design and heat shield, the Ferrari F430 exhaust manifold and headers cannot vent heat efficiently enough causing overheating the standard Ferrari F430 manifolds to crack. This results in loss of exhaust gasses. Not only will this give a false reading to the lambda sensors but it will leak highly poisonous fumes dangerously close to the cabin – far from ideal!

A quick phone call to a Ferrari main dealer will tell you just how expensive the genuine Ferrari F430 manifolds are purchase and with many other Ferrari Fi 430 owners complaining of the genuine replacements cracking yet again we decided the most suitable option would be the tubular design Ferrari F430 stainless steel setup from IPE. After inspection of the new aftermarket Ferrari F430 manifolds we can safely say these are very well built and compared to the genuine Ferrari F430 manifolds they really do look the part! Venting the heat away from these will not be a problem due to the Ferrari F430 open engine bay allowing efficient enough heat dissipation from the manifolds to have no negative effects compared to standard ones!


Stock Cracked Ferrari F430 Manifolds

This fix to the cracking Ferrari F430 manifolds looks the part too, it will increase gas flow, will stop the cracking problem and the complete kit is also cheaper than the genuine Ferrari F430 manifolds!

Fitting wise, these Ferrari F430 manifolds without the detrimental heat shield are slightly skinnier and therefore slot into place better. On the left hand bank the starter motor and air con pump was removed for easier access, otherwise apart from some very tight manifold bolts which with the bulky large standard manifold in the way made it a bit difficult to swing a spanner in the space.


New Ferrari F430 Manifolds Fitted

Viezu’s File Dispatch Service will be able to provide automatic KessV2 tuning files around the clock.

The Tuning Service and How It Works

Using our tuning file dispatch Service is as simple as attaching your tuning file and choosing the tune and remap level that you desire. Our custom made tuning and remapping software will automatically decode your tuning file and perform all the necessary steps to get your tune file ready.

Our tuning software system is designed to learn from previous tuned files and can create a custom tune file without any human intervention, providing it has seen it before. If this is a new variant then this is sent to the Viezu Technical team to process and will be added to the service meaning that over time it will support more file types. There are already 15,000 tuning file variations available for download.

Our Pay As You Go payment system, unique to this service, means that you only pay for the file when it is ready meaning you only pay for the tuning files you need, as you need them.  We also reward you for your use of the system, with 5 files or more processed within the month will give you a £10 discount for the next calendar month.

Our File Dispatch Service will create your tune files from the same research we have made with manually made files giving you the same custom tune files.
