Performing Imports N55 Software Installed!!

Thought it more appropriate for the N55 subsection of the E90 forum, so please go here for a review:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...1#post10158561

Executive summary: Removed JB Stage 1 after 3,000 miles. With the new software the lag is G. O. N. E. gone. Power delivery is amazing, car pulls much harder all the way to redline, and I know I am operating within the safe limits of the motor.

AWESOME. Comments in either section welcome.

How much did this tune cost? and with JB3 what was the best boost setting you experienced and on what octane?

Thanks

Not sure on price. I got a price break as I was one of the first to test this software but I'll check on retail and post back.

Best setting I used on JB3 was +3.75 on 93 octane. Power with this new tune is similar to that only a night and day difference with low end power and lag.

Just called them and wow, it is not cheap. Software is $1499 and then $150 to put that software on the DME. So include shipping, it is gonna be about $1750.

Hi Blackberry

Did you buy and install the JB3 kit from JefferyJames?

1700$ is very expensive!!! I'd rather keep my jb3 and have light lug. But it's just my opinion.
