I say this not to start an argument, but don't discredit us for an application that we stated FROM THE BEGINNING was NOT tested and that had not yet been used.

"John traced all the wires and they trace through correctly. We are now checking ot see if it's in the CAN bus. ProEFI is providing lots of help. It's the first Z4M they've done so there will be a learning curve.
Chris"

Like Chris said we are trying to be as helpful as possible, but it is hard to diagnosis a car without physically having the car in front of you. John and I will hopefully continue working together to solve this issue.

So basar, I can assure you, at least from my end, that we care about our customers and that I care about their investments into their car. I look forward to seeing your car run with ProEFI, however I ask for your patience and understanding while we work through these initial issues we see on many of our application in their beginning stages. I understand your patience has been spread thin, however that should not reflect on us. We have been as prompt as possible in returning questions and technical support to the staff at HPF.

Hopefully in the end this build can reflect the great potential I know rests in both companies.

Where is Lutz at in all this with the Z4M in their shop? Any feedback from them at all?

I think they're trying to avoid following in the same footsteps and are hoping that the issues are worked out first before going in circles.

Kirk, that's a great question I don't have the answer to. I meant to give them a call today, but got caught up with other things around the shop. I'll do my best to give them a call tomorrow and report back unless they do so beforehand.

I'd love to see these Z4M's boosted and on the road. I won't butt heads with people, because the time I spend bickering, I could spend doing more important things. I'm at the disposal of anyone with the same mindset.

Thank you for the info. I hope you can solve these issues. I will keep my mind busy for a small amount of time...

Hope to see nice news on this topic.

The question for Basar is who is going to provide product support to him in Turkey?

I hate to say it, but the most cost effective solution is to wait until HPF or Lutz Performance figures out the Pro-EFI on the Z4.


That is a really good point

I'm sure a good tuner can set it up.
I can but that would cost of time and money since i will need new e46 harness and change the key and ews.

Thats right, Credit cards need to heat up again

Pro-efi is OUT !

HPF AEM plug and play ecu, e46 m3 ecu, key, ews, brand new engine harness for e46 m3 is on their way some other stuff will be bought ... Also a e46 m3 gauge (cluster) will be bought.

So when AEM infinity becomes available to HPF M3 owners i will be able to use it

Lets get it on!
