125i Evolve R Tune (Dyno inside)

125i before and after dyno with the Evolve R tune

Car was not removed from the dyno during the flash process to eliminate variables. Method was strap the car on for the base run, flash the car, then straight into the tuned run (ideally the ECU would bed in or adapt to give a couple extra KWs).

Car is running 98 fuel, has 70,xxx kms and is a 6spd manual.

Before: 128kw
After: 152.5kw

Gain of 24.5kw or 19%

Dyno sheet:


From memory a stock 130i on this dyno gets 145-147kw atw... I will find a graph later and overlay it.
Regardless, great result and definitely a worthwhile investment for any 125i owner

How did you leave it on the dyno until the tune file came? I am waiting for a file at the moment for a 125i and it has been 4 days from when i read it and i'm still waiting.

Would also like to know the answer to this! I've been lurking these forums for a while now.. I'm looking to buy a manual 125i some time over the next 2 months, and I've spent quite a bit of time reading up on 125i tuning, specifically the EvolveR tune. Seeing this thread pop up today was pretty exciting.

BTW, viciousgook, your car has an awesome look to it.

the read was done a few days prior, then once we had the tuned file we dyno'd before uploading tuned file, then again after flashing.

Good result. Lots of extra power everywhere under the curve too. It will make more once it has a chance to adapt fully.

Your tune will be back with Andrew in the next hour or so.

If your car is out of warranty just tell them not to update the ECU.

If they do update it we will update the tune for no charge. The installer may charge for their time to re-install it. You would have to discuss that with them.

Great to see a real dyno result. I chickened out of doing it a few months back due to lack of 'real' results...possibly back on the cards now.

Look forward to hearing what the guys waiting for their tunes to come think once it is done.
