    Hi all, After my 2003 318i manual (presumably) blew the head gasket, i decided i had enough of that motor and began to swap an M54 in. Everything went relatively smoothly so far, i got the wiring loom with the new engine and everything plugged in nicely, until i noticed two connectors in the DME...

    Hello all, I need the blue and red google docs spreadsheets for MS42 to MS43 but all the links are dead in the old posts. Trying to run an S52 with MS43 in an MS42 equipped car. I have the MDK to EDK (throttle body) and throttle pedal pinouts figured out but other than those are there any pins...

    So the car was running perfectly fine. Car was sitting for about 10 minutes, off. Hope in to back out a friends driveway and it goes into limp mode (auto trans). Scan with a simple scan tool and get a P0600 code. Take the care home and scan it on INPA & I get code: 217 (CAN bus error -EGS Signal...

I have already been messing with the MS43 for a little bit and now i want to try to make a little more power thru tuning the tables. Im not expecting anything crazy i just am trying to learn...

    I am trying to datalog using tuner pro rt using a K+DCAN cable and following the steps on the MS4X wiki. I followed all the steps but when I try to connect it just says "connecting...." forever and then times out. I have the correct BIN, XDF, and ADX files for tuner pro rt. I even tried pulling...

    Howdy. I don’t know what pin terminals to buy for adding a pin terminal to my DME and EWS. I’m in the middle of a manual swap (E46 330Ci) and need to add a terminal to DME connector x60004 pin 23 and pin 8 of the EWS connector. Does anyone know what brand, size etc. terminals to buy for this???

    Hello, I am trying to add an EWS module to my DME bench setup. My DME Bench setup is fully working I have flashed multiple DMEs. However I added an EWS module using the following wiring listed below and it didn’t work. I tried using both inpa and MS4x flasher to resync. I received a no...

    I recently decided to try to reflash the DME (MS43) on my 325i. Everything had gone smoothly up until it was time to write the new 512kb file in JMGarageFlasher. Instead of opening the one from MS4X, I accidentally hit write again. I figured it was just rewriting the copy of the original, and I...

    Before I get started, let me just say that I don't have a whole lot of experience and information is tough to find on this stuff so if I get anything wrong please let me know. With that said I have been wanting to do a 64k flash on my MS43, as I don't want to do a 512k flash and ravage through...

    Hey, does anyone have a euro2 flash file that has the EWS disabled for an M54B25? Can't find anything online that would help me combine the two. I've tried flashing euro2 and changing the hex values to the 512 file according to Siemens MS43 Immo Off Guide [430037, 430056, 430066, 430069] , but...

    Can anyone help me with setting up wideband logging in tunerpro? I have got the 0-5v signal in INPA working perfectly but getting that signal through the DME into Protuner is a problem for me Help a newbie out. Much appreciated :pimpin:
  13. E46 General
    I've been browsing YouTube and I found a couple of videos saying that it is possible to do an ECU flash on the MS43 ECU. I've read a couple of things saying that the 01 325i came with the MS43 and a few others saying that it came with the MS45 or MS42. If my 325 does in fact have the MS43 does...

  15. Engine Swaps
    I have an '00 323i wagon, 5mt, sport trim and have sourced an M54B30 from a ZHP car that I am preparing to swap. This will replace an M52TUB25 so I'll be merging wiring across three ECU versions and I'll end up running a stock tune on MS43. The car is a daily driver but also an HPDE trainer...

    Hi all, I would like to gather technical information in this thread, that could help out others. Hopefully it is deemed interesting enough to be added to a sticky collection in the README section. This thread might be of interest for anyone wanting to dig deeper into OBD2 diagnostics...

    Guys, Title kinda speak for itself. Logic - The m54's are cheap real cheap and good engines, especially for e30 conversions. EWS is a clear obstacle. I for one cant find anything at all publicly available for as a solution. Some have claimed to have done it / offer it. HakkenTT, i think...

    Does any vendor or tuner have an off-the-shelf 8-15psi/x# injector turbo tune for MS43? I've been through the drama of having my car dyno tuned and would much rather build a custom turbo kit to the specs of a pre-existing tune. Sorry if this has been covered before, did a quick look-around...
