Sign me up. I'm free weekends in February and any day the first two weeks in March.

2011 E90 M3 - Benvo BPMSport tuned stage 1
I've been planning on getting a drop in filter so I'll do a before and after. Let's see that 3HP gain!

thanks for coming out everyone. Stay tune for videos. There were issues with my memory stick and the dyno plots will be posted on a later date.

All 3 M3s were about the same at 330s HP, 240s TQ. They were all DCT in 4th gear and the numbers were consistent. I'm pretty sure the dyno was low reading with those numbers but there was a 1M with just full exhaust, no tune that put down 330s HP and 370 TQ. Rediculous! Major props to the 1M. Also a C63 with a tune was 400 HP.

That's a low reading dyno. Mustang?

It sounds like two of you have BPM Stage-1 tunes and one didn't. Numbers were still close?

I wish I could have made it out. After I have a Stage-2 tune I will definitely need to. I put on some Turner test pipes last month.

Dyno jet dyno and two of us had the stage 1 tune. It apparently makes no real world gains although the car feels like it has gains. Waiting for the overlay graph so we can bitch about wasted money.

Dynojet?!?! Were back-to-back runs close to each other? Something's not right, stock M3s should put down about 350 WHP on a Dynojet.

Would have been very useful if someone had a BavTech cable and logged timing, AFR, and knock for the runs.

Not really fair to compare two different cars for the overlay, but it's just really weird to me all 3 dynoed so close to each other.

Yeah I know. It seemed really screwed up like something wasn't right but the curves looked good, back to back 3 runs, and we were all within 1-2 HP/TQ of each other. Notably the first runs on each car were even lower but the remaining two runs were stable. Also, at least on my car, after the first run they had to "adjust" one of the connections for a better ground or something and I went from 250s to 330s HP. Kinda screwy.

Sounds like the dyno or operator itself may not be trustworthy.

I've been told by multiple sources to shy away from CarbConn for tuning, I have a personal friend who lost a motor on his S2000 from their tune.

I didn't have any reason to question their dyno as well, but now I'm starting to wonder....

David dynoed his 2010 e92 there last year and with akra evo and ess tune he was at 350rwhp I believe. There was a stock 2012 m3 there that made about 350rwhp stock last yr on that same day.
