Your best bet when adding power to your car is to use a tuner with a proven track record and use the product as intended. There is no substitute for real world, long term testing and R&D when it comes to adding FI to a vehicle.
I'm intrested in a VT2-585 so I've been doing a lot of research. I do not have access to any ESS authorized dealer so it would be installed by a former BMW tech that now owns a shop. I will discuss the install (I have a digital copy of the instructions) prior to ordering the system. Do your system's intercooler replaces the stock oil cooler?
