New NA Mods, Money well spend

Hey,

First, I would like to thank Robert Tan and the EAS team for providing great council and doing good work. I have spent a bunch of time considering NA mods vs. FI mods. After spending a bunch of time going over all of the modification options and costs, I chose to go with NA mods from EAS. They installed the following on my 2011 E90 manual:

ESS ECU Tune
Macht Schnell - Performance Underdrive Pulley
Macht-Schnell Race pipes
Macht-Schnell Stage 2 intake

I know many have said this about their modifications, but this is how the car should have been from the beginning.

Start-up is very smooth and not as rough as stock
First Gear better pull, but still kind of weak to me still
Second Gear this is where the car comes alive, it is very strong and it really shows what the car can do.
Third Gear very strong with better torque and you can really get the full 8600 RPM
Fourth Gear the car continues to pull until up to the full 8600 RPM
Fifth Gear The top end start to get weaker about 7500 rpm
Sixth Gear feels like first, slower acceleration
Noise It is louder, I like it, but people on the Bluetooth speaker will ask what that noise its

Seems pretty common that tune, pulleys, filter and test pipes (primary cat delete) will get 400rwhp.

The cold start up noise is one of the best features of the M3!

I just hope the M3/M4 has something similar.

I love how the impression of the tune changes depending on what gear he's in. That must be some crazy tune to change based on the current gear, LOL.

Clearly this guy is not sure what he is talking about. There is physically no possible way 1st gear can feel slow and 2nd, 3rd and 4th feel fast. EVERY gear lower will accelerate harder given its huge gear torque multplication! 1st barring total traction lost will always pull harder than 2nd, 2nd harder than third.

Than 5th suddenly stops pulling at 7500? Again power is made above that and nothing magic happens at 7500 however I have never been there in 5th.

Those dyno's has a wierd blip in them and makes me wonder if something is not right with the car. Dyno's without logging data is almost useless. what was the timing achieved? A/F ratio? That would be able to tell us if the tune was even helping or if your spark plugs maybe need changing etc.

So you gained 5 hp? Sweet
