Soo i have the sprint booster with the settings switch and its great.. absolutely recommend it if you are not going to do headers. im planning on puttting on ebay headers on my 330ci running with no cats and active autowork has a $400 tune for 330ci's that they can specially program to run without cats and thatll yield atleast 20hp with the header no cat way... if not and you dont mind stretchin the engine a little bit you can try shark injector and that raise your rev limit to 7,000.. sprint booster has settings... you choose..

The Dinan web site lists the differences of the Stages. All the software is 20% off this month (10/2010)


Stage 1 - Works without any other "mods"
Dinan Engine Software safely raises the rev-limit by 240 rpm, endowing your car with a broader power band and greater road speed in each gear. The software also removes the top speed governor, enabling the cars to attain their ''natural'' top speed. Reprogramming of the drive by wire throttle system speeds up throttle response, dramatically reducing the delayed response to throttle inputs exhibited with the stock programming.

Stage 2- for an aftermarket cold air intake
Engine management software for use with the High Flow Intake. Optimizes performance and drivability when the High Flow Intake is installed, taking full advantage of the additional air-flow.

Stage 3- for use with the Dinan high flow throttle body
Engine management software for use with the High Flow Throttle Body. High Flow Intake system recommended for maximum air-flow and overall performance.

Dinan software must be installed at an authorized Dinan dealer.

There is a dealer finder on the Dinan web site:
All dealers in the state of Quebec:
Groupe Autobahn 8
1330 Boul Bastien
Quebec, QC G2K-1G2
Discounts on new and CPO cars.
Most Dealers offer a parts discount, BMP Design 10% off
