Tuning possible on e46?
 
I own a 2002 330ci with a stage 1 turbo that was installed by the previous owner. I was looking to get it dyno'd and tuned, but was told by another e46 owner that tuning as far as air and fuel mixture wasn't possible on our cars.... This can't be true right

If its possible do any of you guys know of any places in SoCal that specialize in this?

Thanks.

Contact Nick G. at Technique Tuning.

:eek:I hope the previous owner got a TT kit rather than slap on a ebay turbo and then sell it to you without a tune or properly running car.

It is technique I'm pretty sure. Def not ebay.

I know it's tucked in good I have a TT kit. Just wanted to see if it was a TT kit. But anyway your best bet is to call NickG TT owner. Either way if is or isn't a TT kit he can tune it for you.

The idle is off. Could multiple other things though. But wouldn't hurt to be tuned.

Ya. The A/F ratio is off. Stalls out quite a bit when coming to a stop and letting it idle.

Did you buy that car out of Texas? I saw it up at one point. Technique Tuning turbo kit, Brembo's all around, RS-GT wheels.

:yikes:

So is it not actually a Technique Kit? I know Nick hardly ever tunes kits that are not his own. Did you ever speak to him?

Can you get those pictures?

I called technique tuning and they said they DO NOT do programming on customers cars because it'd be too expensive for the customer. Some bull. They said they only do tuning on their personal cars. They only provide the kit.

Same response I received when I was attempting to have my AA Stage 2 car re-tuned.

Kind of ridiculous. You'd think they would do whatever they could to make their product work better for you. :dunno:
