Having issues.

Was out playing in the rain today near home and my ride started sputtering and not running so sh*t hot... Was also hard to start after a stall.
Brought it home and threw the tester to it and had about 12 fault codes, weird part is no CEL?... Were from anything from misfires to bad O2 sensor codes, even had a DISA fault code in their?...
Still have all the boost, any Ideas?

Think I'll blame Lee, he cursed me just yesterday saying I'm the only FI guy in Ottawa with no issues...

Wet DME? Wet coils? Arcing at the plugs?

I keep thinking it has to do with rain. Since it happened after driving around in it.

I know my car hates rain. I've never tracked it down to the DME so I can only speculate coils. Drive it hard enough and everything dries up and goes back to normal.

I yanked my TT stage 3 programed ECU and replaced it with my stock ECU and well... Was stupid surprised...
Thinking my TT S3 ECU was done when I installed it, now I ended up going back to stock programing and well, I end up with "A LOT" more TQ.
I loose my old 7K RPM limiter, now 6400 and once again I'' m limited to a top speed of 190KPH but holy... The TQ gain isn't a little bit... If I shift too fast my clutch is slipping now WITH STOCK PROGRAMING? @ 10 PSI.... Thinking I installed a bummed ECU and it's finaly sh*t out... Running great agin with my old "stock" ECU back in.
I spent a good 45 min pounding the piss out of my car to see if any problems might accure setup this way, found none.

Good info for Bear, apperently 4 pot BMW can run 30lbs injectors on stock programing @ 10 PSI with no issues (without a RRFPR) or any programing.

Still... it's Lee's fault, I expect a Jack and 2 spare tires for when I test drive his ride, He will need to film the smoke to remember... He did mention that he's easy going with frinds playing with his ride... I plan to change that... I need a parkinglot and WILL show you what a 3.2L can do.

Glad to hear it was a quick fix. Any way you can reprogram to keep the stock tune, but up the rev limit and speed limiter back to what it was?

Think I'd need Raph to do that for me, or pick up another spare ECU and send it out to MarkD.
Besides looks like I need to upgrade my clutch as is already.
Was planning on the single mass e30 flywheel & clutch pack upgrade anyway, geussing it will be sooner then later.
