BPC looking for a test car:

Per @Bob@BPC
"Looking for someone local with a n52 with the 3 stage rwd & manual trans to do a beta Alpha N tune. I will discount the price of the standard tune and I will need the car for at least 3 days for testing. Please PM me if you are interested."

I just got off the phone with bob. I meet all the requirements. I leave for a mission on Monday so I won't need the car for 10 days. He gave me a price for the tune and testing, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post it up here but you can PM me.

I saw you like my post on FB (about the ITB) and thought 'he doesn't have an N52 anymore though'

Excellent progress.
I guess for Alpha N we would need to make a MAF delete plate to close off the hole...

It's a larger intake tube and filter altogether, which is part of the gains. I don't believe there was a spot for the MAF.

Talking with BPC (because I thought this was a tune I would use), you could easily just unplug the MAF and leave in place.

They jump one of the wires so they can still pull timing up top I believe they said. Unfortunately I won't be dropping off my car. I don't have the money for the tune right now, I'm going on vacation in two weeks.

I think the tuner should gift the tune to you. Not just a discount. Just sayin.

I agree, I was going to leave them the car for 10 days too. But I have no say on getting it free so yeah. I'm not going.
