I'm really surprised they were able to do any dyno runs... my computer shut down my throttle due to detected differences between front and rear wheel speed. I can't believe BMW would cripple the M5 and let the M6 continue to be dyno-able.
Also, unless the M6 is dramatically different than the M5, 10-14 hours to remove the stock headers and replace them with the SS units is extremely optimistic. My install took well over 20 hours. The heat shielding needs to be removed (and replaced) in order to bolt up the headers to the heads. This was very labor intensive. Even TMS took over 20 hours on the same install.
Not trying to flame, just comments from personal experience and talking to various shops.
I'm curious to see what Active can milk out of the ECU... keep us posted. Also, I'd like to know if you get the dreaded SES light... and if so, if Active can program around it.
