And you'll see peak hp of 264 up from stock 250. For 3.2l cars, the actual hp is actually higher than BMW's quoted 240hp and this has been discussed by many on this board ad nauseum. I'm sure with the Dinan CAI, you're close to 270hp. What's also truly impressive about Jim's software are the torque gains across the entire rpm range.

IMO, for the 3.2l M3, adding Jim's software, his intake and an ERT pulley will get a conservative 275hp. Add a Supersprint and 280hp is not inconceivable.
