Performance Power Kit 2 - Instructions Attached

Finally figured out how to attach the PPK2 Instructions to a thread. Hope these help anyone attempting a DIY installation. Shoot me a PM if you have any questions.

BMW what's what a $1k for this?
Is it really worth it?
How much more HP do you really get?
And well does it mean a better behaved longer lived engine if not abused?

I don't believe the software flash is any different than BMW's PPK 1. The advantage of the PPK 2nd the additional hardware consisting primarily of an auxiliary radiator and a higher output radiator fan.

Pig farmer: do you know what is the MSD80 option? In the instructions says that only cars with that option come with the ECU. I havent receive it.
Thanks

My understanding is that if you have the MSD80, you need to upgrade to the MSD81 before receiving the flash. I believe BMW switched to the MSD81 for cars with a production date after March 2008. Maybe someone else can confirm this. My car is a 2009 and I had no problems at all.
