Evolve's New Tune is Epic!!

Just wanted to post a mini review of Evolve's new tune. Have had their tune on my M3 since 2011 and have noticed that their newest tune adds more power according to my butt dyno, the car seems to pull harder, haven't had any knocking or other issues, my akra evo exhaust sounds louder (maybe?? or im delusional?), their new burble feature is pretty cool, and a friend of mine driving behind me said the car backfired

Loading the file in as always was quick and easy. Took 5 min to tune the car. No CEL either so I was able to pass my state inspection.

All in all, really happy with the tune! Thanks Sal and Imran

New Tune? Did they send out an update or did you ask for one?

Will post a video tomorrow. Not sure if it actually added power but it definitely feels more powerful. The jump from new tune from old tune feels the same as my jump from old tune to stock.

Thanks for your feedback. Glad you are enjoying it!

The sound on the video is made with a very high quality microphone so put some good headphones on and enjoy. :-)

Peter - look forward to seeing a video of yours with the Akra.

We quote around 15hp, more on modified vehicles. But we have been known to be conservative More details can be found on our site

Just to confirm -- this sound can be achieved with Akra evo and tune only? If so, sign me up.
