Evosport's Powerchip ECU Upgrade?

Anybody have an idea when this will be out? I can't wait and see the performance upgrades this gives us, compared to the AA ECU. I doubt the price will be as good as the AA right now.

Ryan,

Give Simon at Evosport a call at (714)901-3100, ext. 60 to get an update on the ECU reprogram.

Think there will be considerable differences in these programs?

It will be interesting to see how they compare. Both tuners are highly respected and very capable. They both have significant experience in ECU tuning and racing. Evosport will also be bringing to market a set of pulse-tuned headers for our M5's in the near future. I would expect that there will be a variation of their ECU software that will be optimized for the headers.

Thumbs down

Guys, software should be ready in next 2 weeks. We will be conducting dyno tests during that time as well. There will be a number of variations for the software, including a setup for our headers (releasing soon) and pulleys. I know everyone is anxious, but you don't want to rush software.

My car is getting the 1200 mile service as we speak...can't wait to get her on the dyno for some baseline numbers...nevermind being able to get her to WOT

By the way, guess what we took delivery of yesterday?

Nice. With a set of springs it will look even better.

Tell me about it...the M6 seems much higher stock than the M5. Springs for the M6 en route from Germany.
