Diana software switch to shark injector?

Hi all,

I just got a 02 330ci 5spd with dinan intake, muffler, throttle body, and dinan software.
After i got the car, i also put in ebay headers and a 3.07diff for free. I think that's about all that i would do for hp/engine.

Is it worth it to switch software? How much of a difference if i switch to shark injector if any? I would really like to get all the hp out of my mods with software.
I do like the higher redline the shark injector offer. Can the shark injector stop the cel from coming on due to my missing cats?

thx alot

The shark injector won't turn off the CEL from cats, and I don't even think you can flash it to a DME that isn't stock. While there may be a difference, it probably won't be very noticeable between the two different tunes.

Take his word for it.

The biggest thing preventing you from getting new software is the lack of the original software. He nailed it above, the Shark Injector will not load the software if it is anything but stock software on the DME.

The only real huge gains you have a chance of seeing are when you put your car on a dyno and have someone experienced tune it.
