That's a safe map to use while you have no bluetooth connectivity to monitor things while you drive. Under/at 13psi, car definitely isn't lightning fast yet but should feel a little extra power

Hey I see you posted the above a while ago, but do you mind sharing what was wrong with your AC compressor? Lately my AC has either not been working or working poorly, so I'm bringing my car to Harte (sadly) this Friday. Was wondering if what you experienced is similar to what I am experiencing.

Also, regarding the window switch that was peeling, was it the chrome on the window switches that peeled?

my AC was making a screeching sound (heard it driving along walls and parked cars). knew that we have the 'ac compressor' issue so took it right away. its was during the winter so i didn't have ac on a that time.

:sidenote: i brought my car from harte infiniti 😁

yes, the chrome on the drivers window switch, driver window up/down switch peeled enough to stick me everything i used it. replaced no problem (under bumper to bumper warranty)

Hmm okay, I don't think mine is making any strange noises. I'll have to pop the hood and listen tomorrow. I've been taking my beater car the past few weeks, especially on these hot days since the Q50 AC has been unreliable.

And nice! How was your experience with them? Mine was so so, and this Friday will be the first time I'm bringing it to them for an issue. I've been doing my own oil/ filter changes and tire rotations so I've avoided them for the most part.

And sweet good to know, I'll bring that up this Friday as well. The chrome has begun to peel on my driver's side switches as well and I can feel it flaking every time I put the window up.

you won't hear it at idle. its under a little load where you'll hear the screeching (at least in my case). check here on forum, plenty of people have gone thru this, some worst than others.

i just brought the car from them. they are 1+ hours away from me. i have 3 other dealerships before i get to them

I was able to warranty out my blinker stalk due to the cheep chrome sticker getting wavy. And under my driver side window switch, the chrome has started to come undone and I can feel it underneath. But I didn't think to ask about that. I just may. Thanks.

That one tube is definitely the reason its causing the hood to close a bit improperly. The ADD W1 V3 and V3.3 both barely clear the hood, literally barely. I believe its only a few CM before the ADD W1 hits the the black fabric thing that's under the hood.

If you can't find another way to reroute the JB4 wire, it should be fine on top of the OCC. But the tube needs to be moved for sure.

I would recommend leaving the OCC where it is (same position to mine) and try to move that one tube (that's on top of the strut bar that seems to be squeezed by the hood) to under the strut bear and near the strut tophats. If you want, you can try to zip tie the tubes in that corner too to make it look a bit tidy.

Let us know how it goes!

By the way. You can check out N54 tech for a lot of JB4 stuff. But I believe you can run up to Map 3 (5.5-6 PSI) on 91 Oct on Premium/Luxe/SS models so you should be good with 93 Oct.

2000: 2.0
2500: 3.0
3000: 4.0
3500: 5.0

over weekend, installed the 'boostinmotion ebay special' BOVs lol. install was a PITA ! the boost reference in back of intake manifold was a pain (u need angled, long nose, needle nose pliers) and the worm clamps on silicone couplers (turbo to intercoolers) were not in any ideal position (especially the bottom one on passenger side) u DEFINITELY need a 7mm, 1/4" swivel socket to make it easier.

other than that, i'd say total job was a 6/10 difficulty.

96464


96465


96466


96467


96468


tee fitting is from conceptz performance


BOVs and silicone couplers from ebay
*i have to reinstall cause couplers are taller than OEM, so i need cut them down to size.



instructions for install (follow CZP install), aslo, it list the hose sizes for the various vacuum lines and size for the hose clamps (i brought a various kit of all sizes from ebay to cover all)
96470


and finally a little sound clip.. stationary, reving..


*sidebar, emptied OCC too. this is after roughly 3500miles

Thanks the post.

I have done the install myself too. It was the worst install I have ever done on a car. It took about 7 hours with lunch break.

The hardest part was trying to get into the back of the engine bay and those tight spaces. It would definitely help if you get a L shaped wrench and some grease/oil to move lube up the hoses.

I think most people that did the BOV install would agree its the hardest piece of work ever.

DEFINITELY. i dropped my angle pliers TWICE trying to install the tee fitting.. smh..

lithium grease works wonders on the hose.. just a dab to slide them into place

I didn't have any problems with the vacuum fitting behind the plenum. I used a Torque Solutions kit so that probably why it was easier. It only took me like 2 hours to complete the job.

Full downpipes are a PITA. 7 hours total. If I was to do it again, maybe 5 hours.
