If you have a desired hardware configuration to be set at a later date, include this info with your initial file request and an additional file will be provided if there is a file required for the change. If the request is provided at a later date, there is a service fee charged for file modification. "

If I don't know which rout I'm going
(Didn't pick exhaust yet,pulley ,filter)

Than what?!
You do not need to alter our NA files for most bolt on mods like filters, pulleys etc.. Our NA tune also does not require a change for most exhaust systems. If you have questions on specifics you can always email me direct roman@esstuning.com at anytime.

Can i see a dyno of an M3 completely stock no bolt on, but with ESS Tune.
I might be in the market for one because i don't want to go catless but want more power.
Nor do i want my warranty to go bye bye, please help!

Check out an article here on MotoIQ to get Billj747's impression of the software on his E90M3:

In Summary from article:

After the software was installed, we turned the rollers once again and were amazed at the results. ESS claims a 10-15whp gain but put down a whopping 361whp @ 8,000rpm and 260 lb/ft of torque @ 6,900rpm. An increase of 24whp and 19 lb/ft of torque from a tune alone.

Some more important quotes:

"With a maximum gain of 29 whp and 24 lb/ft of torque, the ESS E-Flash tune improved the performance of our highly-stressed S65 across the board with the OEM cats and mufflers still in place. For a simple tune, we should now be at ~440 hp at the crank, which is the same power as the 4.4L M3 GTS! (BMWs answer to the 911 GT3)."

"This (Trans) software upgrade is a MUST HAVE for any DCT owner and its how the car should have been programmed from the factory..... If I had to choose between the transmission software update and the 24hp gain from the tune, I would choose ESS DCT programming over the extra power any day of the week....."

Question: Can I purchase the sc software separate since I have the e-flash cable from my previous tune? In other words, when I sc, and I need to purchase the tune, how much will the software alone cost since I have the hardware? Thank you sir.

Only if the cable is originally from ESS. Other tuner cables are not compatible.

Recent dyno of 2008 E90 M3 with ESS E-Flash.



Modifications
- ESS E-Flash Software Tune
- RACE X-Pipe (no resonators or cats)
- Megan Muffler

Keep in mind we're still on 91 octane in CA. Gains are consistent from 4500+.

Maybe its a 64bit issue? Wont let me install the cable drivers for shi* and when i find the drivers manually it says its been tampered with or the hash is missing etc.
Ima send my friend over to you guys tmw with his M5, guessing you guys r closed today (sunday) right?

WIN8 is a little tricky as the driver signature enforcement used needs to be disabled. Here’s an article that overviews the process:
http://www.fotoclubinc.com/blog/how-...-on-windows-8/. Once disabled, the E-Flash program can be installed.

FAQ has been updated.

So even if a 93 tune is installed and I decide to track it I'm going to have to fill up with race fuel to be safe? Would using 93 on a 91 tuned car be just as safe?

The software will adapt to the fuel you run. Better quality fuel will net better performance and more safety during track use.

Remove the V13 E-flash from your computer / desktop and load this new version to replace it.

Just to add, keep the E-Flash cable plugged while install E-Flash so the proper drivers are loaded/retained.

Nothing is working. I tried a number of times loading up the software with the E-Flash cable plugged in and tried plugging it in after the update and it isn't installing the drivers.

What could it be?
