I love the boost from 4-6k. Will see how the DME adapts, dont think i need a tune so soon. I always felt the car was Jakyl and Hyde after 4k.
Now it truly is. I guess for track a tune is needed vs just a manifold.

I wonder if stock 128i tune is different from 328i, maybe it will adapt different.

EDIT: DISA update: 1 tank of gas later, and the best part is the low end torque for traffic/ street driving. Fuel econ is improved by about 0.5 l/100. The "Flat spot" is a non issue with 6mt & I don't notice it unless I am looking for it.

I posted about Magnaflow direct replacement catted headers/exhaust manifold in the e90post n52
Andrey ! I just noticed your message ! It is pretty interesting. I guess you are one of the rare if not the only 128i owner who installed a Disa manifold.
Did you post another thread about the install or a DYI ?
where are you planning to get a tune ?
