Tuners: can you modify servo

One thing I would love and buy immediatly would be a tune or program that could stiffen up the steering a few notches beyond the sport setting that exists.

Given there is a setting to toggle between normal and sport steering for heaviness I have to think there is a way to boost that signal and alter the hydralic assist to decrease it.

I know some think it may be artificial or what not but I really would like stiffer wheel especially on some of the higher speed sweeper types of driving

Wondering here if coding the car to Euro specs changes anything on the steering.

I am really shocked this is not something being modified. I hear so often people feel the m3 steering is too liight and I agree. I guess its impossible

The Macht Schnell UnderDrive pulleys are a good way to tighten up the steering slightly without messing with DME software.

Power gains (8-12whp) are a bonus.

Servotronic is not part of the DME.

Mike you seem to know everything about these cars. Theoretically is it possible or simply not doable?

So it's not part of the DME, then it can be coded, similar to Euro MDM, side mirrors etc.,? right?

OR

Adding (removing) a value to the Vehicle Order (FA or VO)?

My coding cable is collecting dust in my garage after coding the options I wanted, but this has sparked my interest.

Yes I believe it's possible. I'll figure it out in a couple months after I have more free time to play around.

I actually was interested in installing a variable knob that would change the assist.
