Interesting. What is meant by "custom tune"? Are these dyno tunes or OTS maps depending on the car's mods?

According to TMS "We've found this pulley alone adds 10 to 14 HP and 7 to 9 Ft/lbs Torque on a stock M3 with no other mods."

http://www.turnermotorsport.com/BMW-...r-pulleys.aspx

Given that, I'd have to say that the "after" dyno is a bit misleading.

I would find these independent unbiased results more credible than a company making hp/tq claims on their own product.

Am I the only one that believes you will not see 10-14 whp gains with pulleys? You will see a difference but not that much.

Frank does a lot of custom tuning. One of the great benefits to living in the mid atlantic. Check them out on instagram or on other BMW forums, there always posting up cars there tuning.

So many SC/NA cars here are OTS maps. Kinda lame

I heard Frank knows his stuff, a friend of mine went to visit his shop and get him to do a tune. Appearently he worked wonders for his s54e36 glad to see he is now offering s65 tuning, I suppose with time his tunes will only get better.

Can we get a before/after bone stock E9x stat?

I'm curious about how a 'tune' alone leads to increased hp.

It would behoove you do search these forums before making that claim. There are many documented posts about members making ~the noted gains on a pulley change alone.
