The M3 4.0 V8 produces 213 lb.-ft standard, and this is increased to 227 lb.-ft. This means more pulling power especially up hills.
The manufacturers of your car have tuned the full throttle maps very well from the factory settings and as such there are smaller percentage gains available on full throttle with the Powerchip. However, with the Powerchip there is still a great improvement in part throttle power, which is where you will spend most of your driving day. Throttle response is also sharpened significantly and the strong mid-range means that in-gear acceleration and overtaking is a breeze.
