Hey Mike:

So based on what I've read in your highlights, there is no HP gain?

Of course there is an HP gain!

We've seen 10whp and 10wtq improvement with just software alone (not even with removal of the charcoal filters). The dyno is posted on the site and on the old thread, please follow the links.

With software and other modifications (such as exhaust and carbon filter removal), we've seen much more considerable gains (In excess of 20whp, and 20wtq). For those with headers, the torque gain down low is even higher.

I forgot to mention that we also have header software for those with headers.

I have just purchased this software and would like to say that Mike is a perfect salesman. The ECU was returned back to me in two days. The service and attention to detail is superb. I have only had the software for 5 miles now but could say that the exhaust tone changed to a more controlled F1 sound. Also, the SMG operation is smoother by light years. Mike thank you for all your help and great product. Guys this is great product, trust me i am very picky and particular person. Thanks Again Mike.

Mike

Thank you for the kind words and I am very happy you are enjoying the software. Make sure to report back after the adaptations set in with your final word . Once the software is fully adapted it is a world of difference. Try driving an M5 without software and you'll sit there wondering what's wrong with the car. The software is an evil weapon .

Hi Mike...

I'm interested in getting in the group buy, but as I discussed with you, I'm waiting to get through the break in period.

Would I be able to pay first, and program later down the line when I get the mileage past 1200?

Thanks!

I'm definitely in, but Mike I can't pull my ECU until my car comes back from the BMW body shop (guy backed into my car while I was parked in a freakin' parking lot). Hopefully I will get her back some time next week.
