Nothing on the M regarding SC, suppose I'll have to call them up.
ESS has been doing FI for BMW's since 1995. They have done business in Europe mostly over the years so most of North America has yet to get familiar with them. They do all of their own software tuning. The software listed on the web site is stage one. It is a conservative tune that will be relesed at an attractive price point. You will see a stage two and most likely a stage three for the 335 very soon. The E92 M3 software is being released now and the SC is in development so there is no official info being released on the SC at this time.

If you have any other questions feel free to PM me

Yeah, by I would rather spend 30-40K on a stroker engine from Dinan than a FI mod from anyone, because at least the stroker kit isn't redefining the engine. This engine was never intended for FI.....

This is a tough call. I agree the engine was not made for FI and personally, since I am going with a stoker engine, I like that option better since there is actually about a 16kg weight reduction and you get at least 520+ bhp plus at least 400 feet pounds of torque. The balance of the car therefore remains 100% the same with maybe a small improvement same throttle response etc…, etc. FI on the other hand will gain 16kg (probably more but don’t know) although 640 bhp will easily overcome that weight gain with slightly deteriorated throttle response and probably some deterioration in balace but the huge advantage of not losing 1% of your power for every 100 meters you gain in altitude (more like 0.4% loss for FI engines) so that when in the Alps, Mexico City, Colorado, etc… or whatever mountains you are in, you will experience a much lesser loss of power. For the track, probably NA stoker is better if there are lots of curbs and FI if there are less curbs or long straights.

AA bought an M3 and therefore they can get more power out of the 335i? Do you mean the M3, if so, we all know they can get more power, its a matter of how much (power and $$$$ and weight increase).
