: and torque. They say all it is good for is to remove rev limit and top speed. Is this really true? Jim I just bought your software upgrade and I would love to hear your imput on this matter. I heard that you said it was due to enviromental chages etc. but I need a better reason than that to justify my $399.00.Please assure me that this is not true, and roundel mag has no idea what they are talking about. What are your final claims on the torque/HP/ 0-60mph improvement after this chip? Myself and a lot of others are listening. Thanks.
On dyno I increased over 24 HP in 10 degree hotter weather than a relatively normal stock M3, that dynoed at the end with 206 HP at the wheels. The midrange is fixed with "Vanos Dip" deletion, but high range only increase by about 9HP to the wheels, with intake. It's the MIDRANGE HP and TORQUE where you'll see the difference. CYA>PABLO
