My Ride: Dinan Tres
well according to them you will:
"The new 3 liter and 2.5 liter Engine Management Systems are fine examples of BMW's sophisticated engineering. BMW detonation control systems, high speed engine management computers and sophisticated "adaptations" have left no horsepower for we tuners to extract; as much as we hate to admit it!

However, this certainly doesn't mean that there isn't enhanced performance available for the 330 and 325. There is still plenty to be gained from Dinan Performance Engine Software, although the typical increases in horsepower and torque you have come to expect from Dinan are not achievable. For example, the software safely raises the rev-limit by 240 rpm, endowing your 330 and 325 with a broader power band and greater road speed in each gear. The software also removes the factory top speed governor, enabling the cars to attain their "natural" top speed.

Reprogramming the "drive by wire" throttle system speeds up throttle response, leaving the driver with the feeling of increased power output. This software is currently 49 State Emissions Legal.*"

It comes wiht a 30 day money back warranty, so why not try it out and see if you like it
