This is what they say: Put up to 40hp and 80lbs. x ft. torque to your N55 today! The aFe Power SCORCHER Module is designed to alter the pressure sensor signals to increase turbo boost to an optimum level throughout the entire RPM range........

No special tools needed. It's all plug and play. Most of the cables are connected similar to how you plug in a USB cable. You don't even need to unscrew anything. The only difficult part is some ports are hard to reach. Oh a wench is needed though to connect the device to the battery.

So yes it is easy to uninstall for dealer trips. But if you install it right, you may not even have to take out the tune. Because the wires looks they belong there. LOL
So is the stage 2 setup compatible with the 2013 535i models?

If you check out the dyno you only get that power increase from 2500-3000.

Dyno varies depending on temperature and condition.

But after adjustment, your dyno is saying your car generate 364hp and 446lb torque. +64hp and +146lb torque

... That is awesome!

*also yes the tune eliminates throttle lags completely. You don't need to cut any wires. The installation is extremely easy.

Guys that only have stage 1 because they do not have the wiring to connect the stage 2 just wait. Dont sell your stuff. I do not have this wiring either on my 2013 but I have stage 2 working now for the past 3 weeks. I found a work around. Terry will have an update on it soon I'm sure

Guys,

Terry needs a couple of beta testers for his revised Stage 2 software.

http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showth...712#post248712

I would do it but we're about to get a snow storm so I won't be able to do any logging anytime soon.

He needs 2 logs on stage 2 map 2. Email terry tell him to send you the new firm so you can do the log. That would help us a lot so he can work on getting more HP to be close to the f30. Because f10 and f30 has the same engine but the f30 was making more HP with the JB and the f10 was making less so he's working to make everyone happy


UMA951 thanks for stepping up man,

Everyone talks shit about why f30 makes more power and why this and why that blah blah blah, but when terry asks for some logs every one bitches down, how do you expect to get something with no help. You need to help to get help!!!!!!

Step up to the plate and do something.

I dealt with this in my E60, I was making less than the 335s. That has seemed to carried over, Terry can try, but I'm sure we will be end up making 15-20 short of the f30s.

Well lets see what he can do, never hurts to try. I been talking to him for over a week every day Nd he said I will do everything to get there. Now if he can't get it where to be the same as F30 Fuk it be happy of what you have that's all. You have to understand that this is how this guy makes a living and I'm sure he does not want to make clients un happy
