I guess you guys are NNOT on the E30M3 digest b/c this was discuss in length about a month ago. Richard John had a nice chart of what all the settings were and final result is NOT TO MESS WITH THE FACTORY SETTINGS UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE SOME MAJOR ENGINE MODS.

The DME can be adjusted with a certain range, by using the screw located on the face of the box, behind the plastic plug.

Does anyone has information regarding those adjustments?

Sorry I mis understood you, with regards
to your orig. question I look at every book
that i have and there is nothing that refer
to, as to what the factory setting is. may
be it is because they were not ment to be ta
pered with. I would imagine that if there is
un udjustment to be made it probably require
espescial electronic equiptment. But if it is
my car and I'm thinking of doing the same thi
ng that your trying to do without the Value
I would approch this like this first I would
take note of the Orig. setting Before i move
anything. and since the adjusting screw will
only go either direction I will try to move
it one direction see if any change or diffe-
rence.if not move it on the other direction
see if there is any change. of course this a
trial and error method. so good luck
