This should really be good powerchip vs AA on the mustang dyno .

Make sure you post some pics and a vid because it will also be Gintani vs Remus Race sound and make sure you both go for a drag race on the dyno like myself and Blake did its awesome To bad I am still deployed I would go down to DFW take a look at this thread:

Let's not re-open this vein of the thread please. It's pointless and many equally valid (if not substantially more valid) counter arguments can be made as well.
Theres nothing to argue Robert its the truth.

Not sure about you, but besides the huge power increase, my favorite result of the tune is the car's consistency. My car used to feel like it lost or gained 20hp from one day to another, but the car absolutely rips consistently now .

Hi PencilGeek,
I did see your very comprehensive dyno charts. Your chart shows significant gain with the AA ECU tune vs. stock. Was that a "custom" tune or just a "over the mail" tune?

(I just want to calm my mind that I did not loose high end power with the AA tune.)
Thanks

I think what Robert was trying to indirectly say is that we need not turn the end of this thread into a pissing contest. And, for what it's worth, he's right.

So let's keep it cordial because I'm sure you know where this is evolving...

It was a mail-order shelf tune, with specific changes I requested. So in one regard it was a shelf tune, but in another regard it was custom tailored to my specific requirements.
If my statement is so weak you can feel free to debate it. I wont be though I'll think what I think based on actual personal experience rather then theory.

Sorry for the delay on the write up. To be completely honest, I haven't started to write it yet. I will do my best to get it up by the weekend, but it might be next week.

My m3 really screwed me the other day. Remote wouldn't open the car. I had to climb in through the trunk to get in. And then the doors wouldn't open for me to leave, so I had to climb out the window. And then I hit the SOS button to have the car towed to the dealer, and I get an SOS Malfunction.

What a nightmare!

Sorry for the delays in getting back to people. Hopefully things clear up next week for me and I can post all of the stuff I have been meaning to.

As always, call or email me with any questions. PM gets slowest response.

Mike, I live in West Los Angeles area and may be up for this if you still need a stock 6 speed E92 M3. PM me details as far as location and dates to do this.
