So what boost setting is working the best for the f10? 2.75, 3.00 or 3.50 (cannot go higher on 91 Octane)

What exhaust mod did you use? I am looking at both Magnaflow and Eisenmann right now. Any suggestions?

I was up at 5.5 lbs of boost on 91 and methanol injection. But currently am driving at 3.5 since I removed the methanol kit. The methanol is now in our intern's 335is making 400 whp

I've driven it without meth up to 4 to 4.5 but the hot weather here in OC lately made it feel inconsistent. At night it worked fine on just pump gas.

My personal opinion is to just leave it at 3.5 and have fun until stage 2 comes out.

Terry at Burger tuning said there will not be any upgrade for the N55 engine though.......

Blackberry - sorry for the late reply being in and out of the country on business made me forget to reply to your comment.

But to let you know I'm currently at +3.50 and have hit a best time 0-60 of 5.2seconds. This was with my meth kit turned off and without the aftermarket exhaust.

I will definitely try to make a few passes again one of these days and see if there was any change at all with my new quad exhaust

I'm using a prototype MXP exhaust for the e90/e92 M3. My final version should be in hopefully by september!

Aside from that the magnaflow and eisenmann both have different sounds, so it really depends on what sound you want from your exhaust.

dealer service

Hi

Has anyone gone in to dealer for service after installing this kit? Did you take it off or just leave it on? Did the dealer notice anything?

I just got my kit. I am debating if I should install it now since I only have about 2500 miles before I have to go in for service.

Let me know. Thank you!!

I left mine in for when I took it into the dealer. But I had a pretty stealth install done so you couldn't even see the harness or control box.

NO FREAKING WAY this kit takes only 15 to 20 minutes to install!!!!!!!!!


I got the kit today and tried to install it 3 different times, 45 minutes each time, I still couldn't get it done.
There is just no way to get the MAP sensor out. I don't care how small your hand is, there is just no way. Unless you have a special robot hand with precision tool or take the air box out.

I got so frustrated in the end, that I almost wanted to rip the airbox out.

So really, how did you guys do it??

Nope, he is not selling anymore. well, I thought if I don't dine out one night, I can come up with the $50 difference and buy a brand new one, so I did. You can get 10% discount.

I'm waiting on the Procede tune. It's a tune plus it features error code reading and deleting. I received an email from them just a few days ago, they are real close to releasing it. Other than that I'm not sure if there are currently any other tunes or ways to do it.
