: Does this mean that the hps increase to ~250????

: 208+43 = 251

: What am I am missing? What does it really do as far as hps?

What I noticed when when I picked my 535i up last night was that the torque curve was considerably flatter. No fall off points, peaks, or valleys from 2500 to 6K+. Just steady, strong increase in power.
I also noticed that (Since I was stuck behind slow 55mph traffic) that there was considerably less "Pedal" needed to keep up with speed,and that the vacume/mile per gallon guage stayed to the left more. In fact, the computer said that I picked up almost 2 mpg. Which is a good thing.
