Small update on DISA & no tune 1.7 gas tanks later:
Really need to get this dyno'd something good is happening, its smooth as if almost no DISA. The new torque is very welcome at stop & go conditions, something that people who have AA tune describe.

I don't think its just my perception, it could be that 128i DME map is different from e9x 328i. Especially since people have said 128i is underrated in HP/TQ rating.

Some logic:
- Dyno's we seen for 128i hint at it being a bit over 230 hp

- I saw a German grey market stock 128i dyno & tune dyno:
Converting from kW it is ~240 hp stock. With tune the German 128i ~277 hp. ( all gains are as most german tunes - at top end; with no DISA the increase in curve is a convex/expoential slope)

- Furthermore, the 2011 n52 x3 and 528i had DISA and were rated at 240hp.
128i Sport 6MT converted to Euro 130i spec, 3.73 diff, tuned by evolve ~220 whp 207 wtq(ft-lb) SAE
In-progress: //M front arm, M3 rack, e36M lip Wishlist: Coils, n55 mnts, headers, LSD, e60 finn diff
