    Hey guys, A little good news, around 18 months in the making. We finally received formal CARB approval for our N54 dual cone intake system! This adds to our N55 Stage1 tuner and N18 JB+ that are also 50 state legal. With more products in the process. :burnrubber: CARB Approved Under Executive Order (EO) No. D-744-2 for all 2007-2012 BMW Models Equipped with the N54 3.0L twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder engine.

    The other day BoostAddict posted an article regarding Weistec's legal action against Dime Research and Development or Dime Consulting. Clearly those involved with Dime realize the walls are closing in so what are they doing in the meantime while the courts play this out? BS'ing people on forums and trying to do as much damage to Weistec as possible. It's a very simple recipe and it happens more often than you think. Simply offer someone some parts for a discount or free in exchange for posting a thread including a positive review while bashing a competitor. It happens all the time. MHP was the best at this. The owner even asked me directly to create fake accounts for him on other forums so he could do this. When a ship is sinking which in this case it is a company it takes cash to stay afloat or keep the doors open. When HPF (Horsepower Freaks) was in a similar position the owner would go on the forums and post videos of how his shop was filled with cars hoping to instill confidence in potential customers. It's easy to see through the BS though if you have enough experience or have been on the forums long enough. In this instance, it was way too easy: This 'Guilty' fellow posts a graph claiming it is a C63 M177, bashes Weistec, and says how great his tune is. That tune curve looks pretty familiar though, doesn't it? Very similar but not the exact figures yet clearly an AMG GT M178 graph and not a C63 M177 graph. If it was the exact same graph as the graph Weistec advertises with that would be too obvious even to your typical forum moron. Maybe they took another run file or just changed a correction factor? If we had the actual bevvy of dyno run files from the Dynojet software testing we could prove this. Oh, it just so happens we do: That would be runfile 88 from Weistec's ECU tuning. Exact same baseline and the exact same after the tune numbers. Because it's the exact same files. This poor schmuck is either a Dime schill or he believes that is the runfile for his car. Either way the guys reading on forums just assume this is the truth and that they can get the same results as Weistec for less money. If the software is stolen and no development work took place, yep, it's possible to offer a lower price. For those who would like to verify for themselves, here are the Dynojet run files: RunFile_002_stock.drf RunFile_088_Testing.drf As stated, it's a simple recipe. Post a graph, have a few fake accounts chime in where the administration doesn't care because it's too big to care, and you get the desired result which is herding the sheep in the direction you want them to go. Now tell me, who would you trust? The company facing litigation from multiple parties with people involved accused of stealing millions and potentially funneling money overseas that advertises software they did not even develop or BenzBoost? Hmm: It seems not everyone is so easily swayed:

    The Competition Package for the BMW F82 M4 and BMW F80 M3 sharpens the car with new suspensions pieces, a new differential, new 20 inch wheels, and new tires. It also increases S55 engine output to 444 horsepower which is just achieved through software tuning. It is worth the $5500 asking price for the suspension, differential, and wheels alone. We all know you can get greater engine gains from aftermarket tuning for less money. Still, the car is supposed to be faster than the standard M4. Look at the results of German magazine testing from Autobild and Sport Auto: WTFBBQ? The elasticity is worse somehow. The standard car in Sport Auto testing shows an advantage to 100 kph and 200 kph. Only in the 0-200 kph sprint by Auto Bild does the M4 Competition Package show an advantage. What is going on here? If we were to guess the new larger wheels are slowing things down a bit and also making traction off the line more difficult. It is likely that warmer weather contributed to the results as well. In equal conditions with equal traction there is no way the Competition Package should be slower. We will just have to wait for numbers from US magazines to prove this.

    I hate it when I'm right LOL He said emissions twice in the same sentence, guess that more or less confirms what's going on here. So, what I'm picturing is... First 5 minutes: air and fuel get sucked (or pushed) into the cylinders. Spark ignites it, creating an explosion that forces the pistons down, turning the crankshaft. The "basics of tuning" are: you can adjust the air, the fuel and when the spark is ignited. Next 1 hour and 55 minutes:, manufacturers spend a great deal of time and money to achieve a balance of performance and economy within standardized emissions regulations (unless you're VW)...a catalytic converter...EGR is...Federal laws prohibit...State laws vary...vehicles must be use only...disabling fault codes is not a solution to...altering parameters that change...not responsible...please sign here and make your check payable to... I still hope I'm wrong because there's a lot they could actually do with something like this.
