My ECU is BACK from Active Autowerke!!!!!!!DYNO GRAPH UPLOADED!

Going to pick up my car after lunch today, can't wait to drive it!

I will dyno it tomorrow and post the dyno here..I was at 382.8 before sending my ECU out.

Heres the thread with pics/vids if any of you missed it and care to see...

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=202824

I hope to be at 400hp+ with the AA software upgrade.

We will see tomorrow

Big thanks to Omar @ Active Autowerke for the help and support with this!

Here is the dyno from my best run....and the second graph shows my best run from last week (pre-AA software upgrade)

Then why do others say that BMW will reflash your computer? And if they do reflash it then your car will be flagged. Can anyone else confirm that BMW can't find out?

Well anytime BMW needs to do a software update on your computer. I.E new DCT software, i-drive fix, w/e it re flashes the entire ECU. So anytime they update your ECU it will erase your tune. Most tuners give you a couple extra re flashes some are unlimited.

That's good to know. But it still doesn't answer my question if they can find out.

Nope!

They CANNOT find out....it is impossible.

Like I said, the BMW foreman at the service reassured me that they cannot see it!

The ECU flash might be given away if you have Launch Control with the AA ECU. But I do not care, that is for sure!

Picked up the car, but sure enough it started snowing.
But it feels damn good...I feel some low end power now...which is what this car needs. I hope to dyno it tonight...but needless to say I am very happy!

If you got the "Launch Control" option that AA has in their software for MT6 cars, it will be pretty obvious to a tech that something's up if they rev the car over 4500 and it holds RPM there.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Curious to hear your review after you drive it a bit.

I assume that you would put the car in 1st while pressing the clutch and then hit the gas. The car would stay at 4000rpm and then unleash its fury once you dump the clutch.

Does the AA software have unlimited reflashes incorporated in the price?
