I've actually heard and read some unfavorable reviews on this product. In one case, it actually reduced power from an M3 I believe. Would be really interested in getting a direct perspective from a user like yourself to confirm or disconfirm.

You absolutely need to do a dyno pull and see where you stand with rwhp.

i don't think a dyno pull is going to help... the car needs to be moving in order to make a difference with this mod.

Well not that you can believe everything you read but I believe Gruppe M posted some results from the install. The thing looks so well designed. Im a believer. Dont lose sleep over it. I had to install it as soon as it arrived or I wouldnt have slept. Im obsessed. I need more POWER... Besides the sound is worth it alone......
