Looking for a honest answer, not just "I love my tune" from guys who don't track
I don't know how the tune effects temps on the track, since I never took the E90 to a local trick since getting tuned. I do know that in some of the crazy heat we've been going over the years, well above 100F, I purposely run it very hard on the high, hold it at high revs, do constant back to back WOT pulls to heavy brake to WOT pulls...the temps never really creep up to anywhere dangerous.

I think forum member, chriszeh, is on the west coast and tracks with the Evolve Stage 2. He may be able to share more, not sure what tracks he goes to though.

For what it's worth, I took my car twice to the dealer with my Stage 1 Tune and raised redline, they never questioned or asked anything...
