    DISCLAIMER: yes I know there were a couple people working on ECUflash. But i'm tired of Tunerpro Little side stuff i've been working on in my very scarce spare time. I do ECU calibrations and developing across quite a few platforms outside the N54 platform. Never really been one to focus on just one aspect of knowledge. So I have many different tools that I need and use to get work done across platforms. I'm Sure we can all agree that TunerPro works, but is far from an IDEAL solution in terms of ECU BIN editing. The breakpoints tables and many other things have always annoyed me. As i've used TunerPro on other platforms (Audi, Volvo and etc. to name a couple). Anyway, decided to convert the Tunerpro XDF's into a more usable XML which is more common file extension in the software world. Big thanks to jyamona@motiv and whomever else had a hand in the creating the current XDF's that we all use. Software i Use for this i use for Mitsubishi and Subaru Tuning mainly. Just a couple advantages of this software are: -on table axis editing -full built-in hex editor (not many will use it or know how to use it) -far better definition file management and editing -better table viewing UI -better table grouping management For those who wish to use this software its available through me for BIN editing and etc. which was not available for BMW prior. Yes, unfortunately the Software has a fee. I already had it but at a higher cost. But what you get for the $70 fee is more than the free Ecuflash/TunerPro can offer. NOTE- I am not making anything on the purchase of the software. All the needed XML's for the software are free from me. as they are different than EcuFlash. So all you're paying for is the Software. The XML's will be free and readily available for download just as the XDF's for tunerpro. This project was soley for me to use for my services, but figured after seeing the threads about ECUFlash that I wasn't the only one wanting a better interface for BMW stuff. You by no means have to use what I use, I'm Just offering it. If interested in using it, just PM or Email me. Email preferred. I8A0S XML is fully completed, IJE0S is almost done, then i will do the other two ROM ID's for use with this as well. SCREENSHOTS: I8A0S Stock BIN

    Nice runs here featuring a stock Porsche 991.1 Turbo S and an E90 335i N54 with upgraded turbochargers courtesy of the Pure Turbos Stage 2 package. As a reminder, the Porsche has a PDK (dual clutch) transmission and makes 550 horsepower. It also weighs just over 3500 pounds. This 335i is said to weigh in the 33XX range meaning some weight loss measures are employed. To give you an idea of what the 991.1 Turbo S can do it runs high 10's in the upper 120's in the 1/4 mile. Now, in the first run the 335i gives the 911 Turbo a beatdown but it looks like the driver was sleeping or in the wrong gear. The second run is much better and basically door to door with the Turbo edging slightly. Good runs. Automatic 335i - Pure Stage 2 turbos, FBO Inlets+outlet, JB4 19psi (map7) and race gas. (3340lbs)

    Now this is the kind of stuff that gets the people of BimmerBoost going! A supercharged BMW E63 M6? That's badass in of itself. But a 5.7 liter stroked S85 V10 with 16 psi of boost on top? Well, EZ-Performance Germany has our attention. Here's what they have to say about the build: Yes, they posted a dyno: Next up is 1200+ horsepower on E85 and breaking into the 9's. Speaking from some personal experience, pushing a stroked S85 with big boost will create some issues. It will be interesting to see how they solve them. Oh, and they are already well into the 10's in the 1/4 mile and over 136 miles per hour: Great work and BimmerBoost looks forward to what they do next. It's great to see the S85 V10 getting the aftermarket push it deserves.

    VRSF: We finally finished up production on our race intercooler and after extensive testing on some incredibly fast cars we're finally ready to offer a pre-order for our new 7.5" stepped race intercooler. The new ultra high density intercooler is 134% larger than the OEM intercooler @ a total of 1080 cubic inches & it's rated for over 1000whp. This is the best solution for any customer running upgraded turbos who is looking for an incredibly efficient intercooler at a reasonable cost without sacrificing quality. We're expecting these to arrive in stock within the next 4 weeks and will be offering introductory pricing directly on our website. Results: We've had a few beta testers in the 650whp+ report fantastic results with 3rd gear pulls (22-30 psi) averaging a 0-1 degree rise, 4th gear pulls in the same boost range are 3-4 degrees. 2-4 gear pulls are showing no IAT increase from 2nd through 3rd with a 7 degree overall rise into 4th. Below is an example of a car running more boost (35 psi) at a much higher HP level (790whp) showing a rise of 11 degree rise in 4th gear. This car also noticed a significantly lower overall pressure drop due to the increased flow of the much larger core. Eye Candy:

    The other day a race video was posted showing a stock 2016 Camaro SS automatic beating a bolt on modified Mustang GT manual on E85. Well, here we again have a manual transmission Mustang except it's the GT350 model with its far more stout Voodoo V8. We also again have a stock automatic 6th gen Camaro SS. The Camaro LT1 engine is larger by a liter offering 6.2 liters of displacement over the Mustang GT350 but its 455 horsepower is less than the 526 horsepower offered by the GT350. Actually, the Mustang makes more power at the wheels than the Camaro SS does at the crank. So why does the Mustang lose from a stop to the Camaro? Because the Camaro has the fancy and quick shifting 8L90 8-speed automatic transmission. It's much easier to launch the automatic from a stop plus the LT1 offers more torque than the Voodoo V8. You combine the torque advantage and ease of launching the car with the shift speed advantage and you get what you see in the video. From a roll, the GT350 wins. Why? Because it has more horsepower and there is less shifting at higher speeds meaning less opportunities for shift speed to provide an advantage. When spending more time in gear the GT350's power advantage shows plus it is already at a higher rpm point in the powerband when at speed compared to when at a stop. Now if Ford gave the GT350 that new 10-speed automatic they have been working on...

    The 991.2 generation Carrera and Carrera S tuning scene is starting to get going. PorscheBoost wrote about the Mcchip-DKR 991.2 Carrera S flash tune three months ago. The only issue was that they did not include a graph and considering the German tuner posts dyno graphs for other cars it was stated that they should know better. Well, this time around they included a dyno graph. We are not going to debate whether the results are at the crank or at the wheels but focus on the gains. Their baseline is 365 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. After the Stage 1 ECU flash tune? 429 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque: An increase of 64 horsepower and 66 lb-ft of torque respectively. Solid gains from what is a basic Stage 1 pump gas ECU flash without any supporting modifications. There are gains throughout the curve from 2700 rpm on until redline. The 991.2 Carrera and Carrera S are going to be fun to tune.

    The W205 generation Mercedes C400 and C450 models equipped with the M276 DELA30 twin turbo V6 engine are getting more love from tuners. Weistec has a bolt on solution for C400 and C450 C-Class owners looking to get more power and sound out of their cars. With 362 horsepower in stock form the C450 is no slouch. The Weistec downpipes will increase power from 5-15+ horsepower depending on supporting modifications. That means the increase in flow will become increasingly apparently as more exhaust gas is moved such as in an ECU tuned example. The downpipes are made out of 304 Stainless Steel. They are a 100% bolt on application and they can be installed in less than an hour. The C400/C450 M276 DELA30 downpipes retail for $799.99: http://weistec.com/all/c/c-400-450/2015-present-w205-m276/exhaust/m276-downpipes-c400-c450.html KEY FEATURES: 100% mandrel bent and TIG welded Constructed of low carbon 304 Stainless Steel CNC machined 304SS turbine flanges Laser cut mounting brackets Fully brushed finish Bolt-on installation 1 hour instal time 5-15hp Gains Improved exhaust note Improved exhaust flow Improved turbo response

    Imolam3louis started a thread S54: S54 turbo tuning in S54 and M54
    Hi guys, currently in the process of putting together a custom turbo kit for my s54 swapped e46 325 i have a spa turbo manifold rms intake manifold fic 1100 injectors still deciding between a pt 6266 or 6766 (already have exhaust housing with wastegate flange welded on) have a 3 in exhaust for my na setup but may upgrade to a 3.5 obviously I still need some parts but it's still a work in progress main issue is tuning, I want a stock dme tune like max psi however they don't tune custom kits, is there anyone out there that can do this??? i would like to run the pmas hpx maf sensor in a blow through configuration ORRR I have a csl ecu setup for a gm 1 bar laying around maybe this can be re scaled for a 2 bar sensor and run boost? Also want to do the single bank oxygen sensor conversion after reading about max psi's setup. advise welcome

    Color us a bit skeptical here. Last month PorscheBoost posted an article detailing the IPD (Innovative Pro Design] plenum and Y-pipe for the Porsche 991 Turbo and S models. The gains IPD shows added up to 70 lb-ft of torque at the wheels which is obviously gigantic. Those are huge numbers from just a plenum and Y-pipe. Now, the gains only come in the mid-range of the powerband so it is certainly possible the factory Porsche design is a restriction in that area. We want to see more graphs and especially a graph of the new 991.2 Carrera and Carrera S plenum. IPD states their plenum gains 30 horsepower and 40 lb-ft of torque on the new 911 models. However, there is no dyno either from them or independently to substantiate these claims. If these gains are verified, this is a must have upgrade for the $995 asking price.
