I only had stage 1 for a week before I upgraded - but yes, there was a noticeable difference. Stage 2 map 1 is pretty much dailed in from what I understand, map 2 refinement is next for this tune. In think this will be a great step forward in getting these cars to show real potential. Once we have FMIC options things will get really exciting. For a tune meant for a completely stock motor stage 2 is definitely an improvement.

it's possible that the N55 is producing the max it can produce. The engine has been in production since late 2010 and every tuner out there claims they are still working on something...

The engine produces more power in the E90/92's. We are just not able to see that power increase in the F10's so far..

According to Terry the F10 only makes 10-20hp less than the E9x crowds. All those high HP N55 dynos were probably running custom high boost maps plus race gas/meth.

The problem is that no tuner sees the 535 a priority but atleast we are lucky Chase is generous enough to let terry test on his car.

I suspect as development progresses for the F30 335 it could translate to some goodies for us (hopefully)

Exactly! Unfortunately the amount of F30 335s out and about are still minimal, hopefully there will be a quick bump in that to drive the need for performance parts

Looks like someone else has to step up and let Terry test on their car. I traded mine in yesterday (happily) for a used F02. Good luck with N55 tuning - in no time you guys will be putting 400+ to the ground while getting double the mileage my new N63 can achieve.

I'd be willing to work with Burger on this, and I'm local.

^^ Keep us posted. Chase was our only hope for any F10 development since he was local to Terry.

Unless theres a F10 sitting in front of Terry i don't think he really gives a crap about developing stuff for us. There's a lot more 18yo buying his tunes in the 335 crowd.

Congrats on the 750 Chase. Must be a beast of a car

I live in Anaheim and always on business. Isn't the shop in Simi Valley? I could leave the car over there for a few days while I'm gone

Yes, the shop is in Simi Valley. Call Terry and see what they can do for the F10.
