LIQUI MOLY and Noelle Performance Form Technical Partnership

Partnership Enables Both Companies to Test Products and Continue Proving Quality.

Irvine, CA, USA, September 2, 2020: LIQUI MOLY USA/Canada and Noelle Performance are pleased to announce a technical partnership between the two automotive companies effective September 15, 2020. Noelle Performance offers high performance software for all new BMWs, creating increased performance and demands on the engine that require the best oil. This technical partnership makes it possible for Noelle Performance and LIQUI MOLY to continue collaboratively testing their products and prove quality.

Like LIQUI MOLY oils and additives, Noelle’s software is developed in Germany in conjunction with partners in Germany, capitalizing on years of history with Karl Otto Noelle and his years with BMW Tuning. While many LIQUI MOLY motor oils are developed with BMW and other manufacturers’ approval parameters, optimum performance and efficiency are always considered. With Noelle’s performance improvements, it is imperative the motor oil keeps up with the demands on the engine and other aspects of the vehicle.

“LIQUI MOLY is a proven motor oil company made in Germany,” Dewey Thomas, co-founder of Noelle Performance, said. “We know LIQUI MOLY oils have BMW approvals and we also have seen these same products perform at peak levels in our high-performance development vehicles, some with well over 100,000 miles. This technical partnership with LIQUI MOLY will enable Noelle to continue advancing our performance software solutions with the confidence that optimum performance will be supported while maintaining the reliability we and our clients expect.”

“This partnership between LIQUI MOLY and Noelle Performance is a natural fit,” Sebastian Zelger, LIQUI MOLY North America CEO, said. “Both companies speak for performance and both companies’ results speak for themselves. We appreciate testing our products in the most rigorous environments to demonstrate how effective our products can be in all situations automotive, powersports, and marine owners and shops encounter. It is also a significant advantage for LIQUI MOLY to partner with and support a company like Noelle that develops products specifically for maximum performing, daily driven BMWs. The Noelle Performance Dealer Network is constantly growing. We are proud to partner with such a thriving, high-end performance car company and are committed to sharing technology and knowledge we will develop around oils and additives for each of the Noelle dealer locations.”

Consumers have long appreciated what Noelle Performance can do for their vehicles. Mishel Kesheshian brought his BMW F90 M5 to Bullet Performance in Costa Mesa, CA for the Noelle touch. “Pushing 850 horsepower and 740 lb-ft of torque made me think we really need to have some quality lubricants in there,” Mishel explained. “Noelle and Bullet knew it, too, and recommended we use LIQUI MOLY with the Noelle Performance tune on my BMW F90 M5. It has been fantastic ever since day one!”

Chassis Dyno Testing and Tuning of Modern BMWs

There is a lot of misinformation out there pertaining to Chassis Dynamometer testing of BMWs. We want to set the record straight, so here are the FACTS:

Modern Turbo Charged BMW’s create massive amounts of heat. This heat must be dispersed in a manner that satisfies all electronic temperature sensors. Basically, the air mass and volume must match the vehicle speed for proper cooling. This means that real world conditions MUST be emulated during the test, that includes proper air flow and volume, proper calibration of the test equipment, all doors and engine hood must be CLOSED!

Most roller dyno facilities do not have adequate cooling fans that can provide this amount of air. Most use high velocity fans such as used in construction. These fans cannot provide the necessary mass and volume of air needed for proper cooling of all systems. Therefore, during the test, the factory protection parameters in the software will reduce power to protect the drivetrain from damage. Noelle Performance does NOT remove or tamper with these protections, that is why our software does not void warranty.

Almost every tuner, be it by software or piggyback, that we’ve seen removes or block these protections because that is the only way they can make power.

The only way to be certain that a dyno test is valid, all data from the engine control, transmission control, electronic diff control must be logged and evaluated to ensure that none of the protection protocols were enacted due to environmental conditions such as lack of air flow.

Dyno calibration is another huge problem. In reality, the dyno must be calibrated after so many runs. Very few facilities perform these complicated calibrations due to time cost and lack of knowledge further invalidating the test results.

We categorically reject ANY dyno test where no data logging was done due to the fact that the dyno test in itself is flawed and inaccurate. Secondly, we will void our warranty on any Noelle tuned vehicle that was dyno tested unless all data logging info is provided as well as proof that the facility can provide the needed air for cooling due to the risk of damage to the drivetrain. Such facilities are very rare, and testing is expensive.

We have provided a video and data from a proper dyno test done in a German Government certified testing facility. This facility is used by many Auto manufacturers as an independent

3rd party for data verification, so the testing they do is certified, accurate and done right. The Video and data sheets are available on our web site.

These are the engineering FACTS pertaining to roller or chassis dyno testing. Any engineer with the proper education and training can and will confirm these facts. What some “key board engineer” on some web site or message board says is of no interest to us and is fake news.
