So I'm scheduled to get a dyno done this Saturday @ 10am. The forecast calls for 80 degrees so hopefully the temps will be in the 70's during the morning. The shop has a dynojet and unfortuantely, I won't have a base run to compare the results to.

365 or bust!

Nice P&L tuned my STi. There was a guy on e90 saying they were the worst shop ever when it came to dynoing his 335xi though. They were great for me and I am interested to see what you put down on that dyno.

Hmm...I researched it a bit more and it looks like many had low numbers on a recent "dyno day". It looks like temps & humidity may have been the culprit. I guess we shall see.

you can up to 5 octane points safely with toulene. Dont know how much it costs cause we get huge buckets of the stuff. Very easy to add and safe. Its the same as the the octane booster stuff but 10 times as good.

Personally, if I had one installed? I would remove it for service. I think that is the best part about the plug-n-play model, compared to the pin-out.
