Tuning questions

Hello everyone I would like to introduce my self, I'm new here. I currently own a 01 325ci that I plan on turboing. This would not be my first rodeo turboing a non turbo car. I have done plenty of Hondas, few mustangs, one galant and the most strangest one was a 97 elantra lol. Also I own my own shop so I have a lift and tools required to get the job done. I work on plenty of German cars. But here is the real question. Is my stock ecu tunable ? I need to run the stock ecu for New York inspection. If so who to go with? I'm not planning on much boost 7 psi or so. Will be running the cx racing kit. I came across a few post people saying go to hobbit. Maybe he can chime in here ?

yes the stock ecu(known as the DME in BMW's) is tune-able, but you have to actually know how to tune by manually adjusting maps. Your car most likely has MS43 which is widely documented in the tuning forum.

I have searched. I have read that it is tunable. But before I drop 3-5k I want to make sure it can 100% be done. Also it is there anyone on here that will do the tuning threw the web/ mail ? I seem to understand some of it. I have been playing around with tuner pro. But it's nothing like mega squirt or hondata to me at least.
