Engine mods for 528?

First of all, I totally regret not buying the 535 so now I gotta make due with my 528. So I'm just wondering if anyone has attempted to tune their 528 motor or if there is even anything out there worth getting to add more HP. I know there is a exhaust sys out for the 528 but is that all?

Thanks guys

Paul. I believe you can get a juice box for your car. But the gains are minimal. Maybe somewhere around 10 hp?

Don't worry I feel like I should have bought a 550 I was only 3k away from a similarly optioned one to my 535. Can't believe mine was barely below 70.

My new rule is to research before buying a car lol.

Other than that why not try getting a k

Only 10 HP for JB? you're right, very minimal gain, might not be worth it...sorry if it a stupid question Jason but what do u mean getting a "k"?

Sorry the iphone app for this forum just blows...It cut the rest of my post out and I cannot remember what I was writing last night.

Actually now I remember...I was saying get a K&N intake filter probably will give you a 3-5 hp so thats not bad for the money.

I honestly think the JB option for your car would be worth it just for the enhanced throttle control. A sprint booster is ~$200 and the JB version does the same but gives you 10hp and 10tq.

I'm sure if you got the intake, exhaust, and the JB you'll gain around 15hp for approximately $1800 which isnt too bad of a gain.

Hey jaekeem i thought the juice box is only for the turbos? BMS box doesn't have a current one for the F10 right? Also wad do you think of sprintbooster?

You can check out okada projects for their plasma direct and plasma ground.. These spark plugs are essentially used in racing build car for faster ignition but i came across these while googling for upgrades..
