ETG - ECU Tuning Group

Anyone have experience with ETG's tune for the 550? As I understand it, it's a slave ECU that's added to create about 80+hp, and is easy to take out of the car.

Thanks.

Agree on the N55, but I was referring to the N63

The gain on N55 is 61hp and 88 tq. I have the ETG tune in my f10 535i.

I'm not too sure about the 550, but the one on my 535i, it's awesome. You can definitely feel the difference. Especially the throttle response and reduced turbo lag.

L7AS - how do you like the tune? did you ever have a JB3 you can compare it to? The numbers sound similar to Dinan's.

I love the tune! I can feel the car is more aggresive. Turbo lag is reduced significantly. I never get to dyno the car, but I think I will someday lol
However, it doesn't delete the CEL when changing downpipes and the other maps features that JB4 stage 2 has.

and nope, I never had the JB3. by the way, isn't it JB4 for the N55?

Not to bring this up from the archieve but I just spoke to this guy for a few hours, he is very interested in us and tuning our cars.

He offered me a tune. And IM going to take him up on his offer. All i was doing was looking for a place to dyno my car and my bms stage 1 comparison, found this... I hope it works out, who would be interested in this tune if it provides positive results??


Ill keep you all posted.

If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for the tune? I never heard of this company before.
