Off the shelf MS43 turbo tunes?
 
Does any vendor or tuner have an off-the-shelf 8-15psi/x# injector turbo tune for MS43? I've been through the drama of having my car dyno tuned and would much rather build a custom turbo kit to the specs of a pre-existing tune. Sorry if this has been covered before, did a quick look-around before posting.


Thanks!

I tryed! No one sells a tune!
TT is the master on the 3series
And he does not offer, the tune alone!
Unless in person!

It would be cheaper to simply buy Nick's kit, (Technique Tuning) than to try do a turbo all by yourself.

i'm all for Nick's kit and that is the only kit I'll get for my 330 but I could get but I could get even a precision turbo for 1500, or even less, the manifold for 500 or less on ebay, 6 injectors for a max of 500, and someone could easily fab the intake, downpipe and charge pipes for 500 or less. assuming the blow through maf is (overestimating), 1000, you're still only at 3500 before tune. Nick includes a generic wastegate, a generic diverter valve and a generic turbo, if he charged 3000 for the tune alone, that comes to the exact price of his kit. how would that be more than his kit alone, and again, I'm way overestimating.

Again, not knocking the kit because for a BMW tuned on the factory DME, its a great deal but how would it be cheaper than building your own?

Exactly what have you valued your time at?

I've spent the last 2 years...and tons of hours, doing a custom setup on my 330i based on a TT kit.

You can bolt the TT kit on in a weekend.

Generic and custom are different things.
