Looks good man. Will this be another shark dyno? I've lost track on what software you are running?

I have an AA tune that has been "revised" and I can also install my Shark tune again.

I'll run the Shark tune on the dyno for a more apples to apples tune. Someone checked out the revised tune for me. I'm disappointed to say that all AA did was add a touch more timing over the Shark tune. Nothing was touched to take advantage of the cams.

Let me just mention here... I just typed a giant paragraph going off on almost every e46 "tuner" I can think of. I deleted it so I don't burn any bridges. Let me just say that I am VERY disappointed with the offerings out there.

I've got the ESS tune but no dyno to show if there was any gains or not. In fact I can't find anyone that dyno'd before and after with an ESS tune. I'm happy with how the car feels but I'd just like to know for sure that it made good power

The coolant hoses might be an upgrade? The intake boots are NOT.
