Jesse,
Our suppliers focus their efforts on customer service and product developments - not uploading dynos to satisfy a few naysayers.

In regards to post 52, please reserve your statements until such time as you have either factual evidence or personal experience. We are all very glad that you are pleased with your Technik sponsorship, but please understand that this may not be the best option for everyone.

Thank you
JL

I was saying that you guys should just upload the relevant e46 dynos. Not the mercedes ones.

I never mentioned anything about Technik nor advertised for them

Again Speed Innovation has a million and one things to do and they are working on getting a dyno. We were fortunate enough to have a mercedes customer upload the dyno for us, hence it was readily available.

As soon as we resize and post this dyno I have a feeling we'll be shipping at least 10 ECU's down to Los Angeles...

Well I just got back from Speed Innovation and I am EXTREMELY impressed to say the least. We did dyno runs BEFORE and AFTER the install. I should mention that my car is a 2001 325i Steptronic with a GruppeM intake which yielded ~5HP at the crank.

On to the more important information. This was dyno'd using a Dynapak dyno system, I have provided pictures as well as video links to show you how it was setup. Multiple runs were done for baseline and after and only after we received consistent gains did we save the info as pictured below.

My car was tuned with the standard 325 software that will go into all M54 325's. Software is also available for ALL E46's, M54 and M56 engines. That's right, they have software with similar gains for you M56 folk. In any case, the dynos speak for themselves. Realize this is WHEEL HP and estimated crank is about a 15HP gain and over 20TQ gain.

My impressions of the car after...well the car pulls MUCH more in the lower end where it needed it. In every gear, the car is much stronger throughout the rev band. As you can see, the software is not peaky at all, it maintain's the linearity of the Inline 6 that BMW is so famous for. Please feel free to take a look and let us know what you think!

Pictures of the dyno as well as the dyno itself are below, videos are to follow!







Enjoy!

My car has JUST a gruppeM on the car. Meaning my baseline was about 5HP above stock (so 189 at the crank).

The gain from JUST the Speed Innovation software was 15HP/20TQ.

Nick's only performance mods are intake and software.

The GruppeM was installed for BOTH the BEFORE AND AFTER Dynos...

This means that the software alone boosted nick 15HP and 20TQ
