What's next from DINAN?

After having the software installed, I was anxious on finding out what else was next. Brian from Dinan responded back to me with the following:

An exhaust kit should be coming out soon...hopefully by the fall...and they have begun work on a suspension upgrade as well as an intake!

They are going to really make me work hard for a Dinan badge this time...dammit! LOL!!

good timing with your question. read up on the Dinan product update for the N63 -- "targeting between 625-700hp and 650-700lb-ft (at the crank)"
more info here:

Stage 2 from DINAN now available: 501hp and 580 lb-ft
While it may appear a modest increase from Stage 1, they are reporting smoother and more power delivery for the first 2 gears. Plus, DINAN has their 15% off sale going on now.
I'll be setting up my appointment in the morning for install next week. This will make my 5GT an even greater Qship.

I'll be getting it done next week as well. I'm hearing acceleration is much improved low down. Not that it was bad before

having the weekend to experience the new DINAN Stage 2, only 2 words are needed to describe my 550i GT -- Powerfully Smoooth...

whereas with the Stage 1 you relished in the revs to really feel the rush of power, Stage 2 is much different. It is now as if you have a huge displacement 12-cyl engine under the hood.
The power, and torque, is instantly there. Feel like revving it up the rpms range? It has the power there too. Amazing tune. I wonder what Stage 3 will be like?

This may be a dumb question, but if you already have stage 1 and upgrade to stage 2, do you have to pay the full $3499? I've never done Dinan ungrades before. This is my first, and I'm impressed!!

No you just pay the difference between the two - giver or take $450 - $500 to upgrade to Stage 2.

No brainer!! I'm setting up my appointment first thing in the morning!! Anything to get that coveted DINAN plate on the rear! I hope the Stage 2 reduces some of the slight lag and delay. I've learned that w/ Stage 1 if I drive in Sport Mode w/ D2, the delay is minimized but you're still not thrown back in your seat until 3rd gear. Looking forward to seeing that power curve smoothed out...

Ha. The responses to the Stage 2 upgrade reminds me of the Oreo commercial.

And I only paid $452.00. Yay, me!

$396 out the door here.


Still don't feel like I got a deal though, since this is what Stage 1 should have been from the beginning IMO!

Not happy??? Granted, it would have been nice to get this level of performance at Stage 1...but for less than it costs to replace a Run Flat, you get all this...

You do realize that the $105,000 2012 M5 posts 552 HP and just 501 ft-lbs! I'm not saying we can whoop a M5 from a standing start...not with all our extra girth...but I'm just sayin'!....it ain't leaving us behind by too much!

[From Dinan's Newsletter]

NEW: Stage 2 Performance Engine Software/Boost Upgrade

After many hours of further research, tuning and testing we have improved on our hugely popular Stage 1 Performance Software. Our team was able to make Stage 2 much faster by improving turbo response across the power-band. This tuning is especially noticeable in the first two gears, now catapulting the car off the line. Tuned for a smooth power-band to put down predictable and even power in all gears and throttle positions. This smoothness improves the quality of the shifting and the overall driveability.

From a standing start (with the traction control fully disengaged) all it takes is the press of the throttle to the floor to get the tires spinning. The everyday practicality of a full size sedan with the fun of a sports car, this is the definition of "Performance Without Sacrifice".

550i Gran Turismo Performance:
501 HP @ 5000 RPM
580 FT-LBS @ 3500 RPM
