    <BR>The list is now divided into 30 piece batches.
    Each batch may not equal 30 names because of multiple orders.

    I'm at #8 on the list.
    I'm looking forward to burning more fuel. :rofl

    I don't do that kind of math any more so I've forgotten how, but can some one tell me with 26 letters for the first letter and 26 letters for the second letter and 50 different states how many combinations that would be and how many iterations it would take before a repeat was likely?

    wouldn't that be 26 x 26 x 50? = 33,800
    or would it be 26 to the 26th power x 50 or 3.078 x 10 *38

    I'm sure a math wizard will be along shortly.

    If we each had 26 names, and their respective initials that could repeat, then yes. Dang that's a big number.

    Your first answer is right. The possible combinations of 2 repeating letters and 50 states is like you said 26^2 x 50.

    As far as likely to repeat goes, the likelihood of a repeat of any subsequent initials and state depends on the quantity that has gone before. You know, in the extreme form, say all 33,800 combinations initials and states had played out without a repeat. The next combination would be a repeat since all combinations had come before.

    I hope so, I was thinking it was 26!/(26 - 2)! * 50 which comes to 32,500

    So there's 32,500 possible combinations of initials and states so . . .
    the chance of 2 not matching is 32499/32500 or 0.99996923076923076923076923076923
    So the chance of a pair is 3.0769230769230769230769230769231e-5

    That's where I get stuck. I'm not sure how to figure how many people it would take to get a better than 50/50 chance of a match.

    The factorial is only needed for non-repeating combinations. Pretty sure anyway.

    Regarding repeats: A better than 50/50 chance that a subsequent combination would match with a previous combination is reached after the 16,900th iteration.

    I've been using the ICE Air for a month now and have set it to the -10 setting (did not even try the -20 setting). Coming from a BoosterPlug which is hard-set at -20, I find the -10 setting to be slightly smoother than the -20 of the BP. I don't see myself even trying out the -30 setting.

    I really can't tell the difference if there's a change in the way the torque (curve) behaves. But the transient fueling issues are still there though I did not expect them to go away with only the ICE Air (gotta wait for the ICE Cool for this). Not sure it matters but the ambient temps I've been riding in are at an average of 27 deg C. I am trying to get myself used to and satisfied with the -10 setting in anticipation of the forthcoming ICE Cool, which only works in the -10 setting.

    Good product. Works as advertised. Kudos to Poolside and company!

    I also have a BP on my '07GSA and yes it is working [smoother throttle, no popping when on compression braking] and yes I do expect the ICE Air to take it to the next level of giving me more slow speed throttle control and a cooler running engine if it is running richer [hope ECU doesn't just advance spark in response to richer mixture..since I ride off road over heating is an issue at walking speeds or on long uphill pulls at slow speeds in 100 degree days. In general rich is cooler.]..<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Then the 'Cool' will complete the transformation that BMW should have engineered into the bike in the first place..:wink:<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    My question is where did you get the "BP is a hard set -20"? Just curious.<o:p></o:p>

    Thanks...<o:p></o:p>

    Well thank you, OCJ.

    Hey, are you saying you don't want to try the -20 setting? You don't give up anything when the IICE Air is switched back to -10 when used in combination with the IICE Cool. I don't know if you're thinking that.

    Are you thinking to use them both together? The BP and the IICE Air I mean.

    Hmmm...I don't want to combine variables or components until I can evaluate what each does as a stand-alone.

    I had never thought of putting the BP and ICE in "series"; still don't think it is good idea. Hell, I am ignorant of if or how it could be done. I prefer to wait for 'Cool' to add to 'ICE'. I believe that will get me the optimal results I am looking for. I do realize that my slow speed, heavy engine loads in hot weather represents a very small percentage of what most owners are looking for.


    Now a question for you; without reading all the posts, you state that -20 is the "factory" setting and -0 is stock sensor. What does"factory" refer to in regards to -20?

    Thanks...Phil

    Where I'm sitting right here, that's the factory. And the IICE Airs leave the factory set to -20°C. :D
