lol...

Just wait until the OP actually gets some 'hardware' mods.

They will probably have to put him in a straight jacket, and throw him in the loony bin.

PC definitely knows what they're doing IMHO. I've had several Sharked tunes on earlier cars, and this one seems better from the seat of the pants and to the eardrums.

A Powerchip tune alone took you from losing to a M6 to beating him by half a car length easy???

I've got to agree with the above statement. A best case scenario would have you netting 20whp, and I really feel that you're going to need more than that to bag an M6 in a straight line.

Uhh, yeahhh!! Just a tune is going to do nothing against an M6. Let's say that the tune gives the added 20hp, that makes 434hp total. The M6 still has 71hp more.

Was your car chipped in Cali or Toronto? I'd love to go PC, but I can't do with the down time

Thanks everyone!

We're going to have some specials running soon. Some hardware packages also that really bring out the power. I'm sure mshao will report back

The tune is actually 28hp and 20tq .

I was racing M6 with my E36 M3 .. and had no luck
221hp is just too much of a difference .

Airfilters: MS Filter

Exhaust: Akropovic (my favorite), Fabspeed Setup, Encore Innovation Setup, Supersprint, or Eisenmann.

I used to do that kind of stuff just for fun... to see the bigger dog rip.

It's still fun racing even if you don't win..

The best for me is racing e46 M3's with my turbo 7 series

Is there any way of getting Powerchip tune in or near Toronto, without having to ship the ECU?
