Post Is anyone working on piggyback tunes for the 550i N63 engine?

I currently own a 335i and I'm thinking about my next vehicle. I have a 528i loaner at the moment - and I'm really liking it. And it's a 2009 - not even the new model. I'm interested in either the 535i or 550i - and wonder which will be better to modify.. I'm sure there's more going on for the N55 right now - but what might things look like for the N63 in the not too distant future? I'm sure somebody must be working on something...

Any thoughts?

Vishnu (Proceede) has implied they are working on something for the N63, but there's been nothing announced yet. They'll release something for the N55 first though since the 335i is a much larger market than the 550i.

Racing Dynamics is also working on it, some info on unreleased options:

Their top of the range model will be called R50S and is based on the new 550i that gets a power boost from 407 hp to an impressive 620 hp from the twin-turbo V8. Racing Dynamics will also add a new new rear-locking differential, sport suspension and high performance braking system.

In the more entry level options:

2026344100 EMS F1x [N63 B44] STEP 1A +88HP NO V-MAX - 550i/xDrive

No pricing on any of this yet.

Www.racingdynamics.com

Website says 88hp as posted above but I spoke with a guy named Ryan lenihan and he told me those numbers I put up as well as sent me an email quote with a price of $1995.00. He told me I could just send him the ecu of my 550i and would have it back in a few days with the increases posted above. I will compare this with whatever dinan comes out with and get one.

If you'd be willing to give Dinan your car for 3 weeks, they're looking for test cars. For the 3 weeks you get chipped, suspension and exhaust mods for free.

What does that mean? Dinan keeps it for a long time or they screw it up?

I don't think your PM is working due to you being a new member. Can you email me your contact info at shiv@vishnutuning.com. I am definitely interested

Dinan has a tune out for the n63. It gives increases of 100HP and 150lbs-ft torque for 3k. I'm doing this immediately after I get my car.

It's not available for the F10 yet, just the X6 50i and 750i, but is supposed to be coming to the 550i sometime in October. Your best bet is to call them, I've talked to them a few times, the tune will be pretty much the same, the ECU in the F10 is quite different and programming it is different, that's where the time is coming from.

I bet the piggybacks will put out more power. I'm itching for a 550i now.
