What experience or Dyno results do you base this statement on ?

Wouldn't the AA tune yield more gains with my mods?
Both are very good tunes. Some forum members like AA some like Shark, I don't think anyone has had both on the same E46. Testing these are difficult because after you install one, you need your Bimmer to adapt to the changes for a few days. Then you can Dyno. The guess is they're within 2WHP. Since you just missed the AA group buy for $300, the Shark is definitely the cheaper tune at $350, and Forum Sponsor Turner Motorsports gives you a $25 gas card with it. I've got the Shark....love mine.

Forum member "Iceman00" made 14WHP (328)on the Dyno, with the Shark & a long tube CAI. Pretty fu#king good.

Good luck.
