I really don't mind the boosted route (to a degree) granted thats not too helpful on the track....but I figure BMW would lean more towards FI instead of massaging and tuning the N52 to crank out a few (*COUGH 30* COugh) extra horses. But at the end of the day its not like im unhappy by any means

We're all gonna have to get used to turbochargers if we get anything newer. At least it seems that way.

That (along with EPS/run flats/lack of dip stick/etc) is why I won't be buying any more new BMW's.

Nothing that originally got me into the brand still exists in their newest cars, other than (now LSDless) rear wheel drive.

Heaven forbid I'm relegated to 911s, older BMWs, Cayman, Boxster, Gallardo, 355, and all other sorts of NA goodness.

I think I'll make do.

Yes, on a E90. Review was very positive.

About to get the aFE header installed on my 128i that has a 3 stage intake and an Evolve tune. Has anyone experienced any problems with this? Should I expect any CEL lights or need to retune with already having an Evolve tune?

Why would you go with Evolve when there are more developed options on the market?

Rookie mistake. I honestly didn't know what the best option would be and I was looking for something done remotely. If you have any suggestions for a better tune I'd be happy to hear!

Sounds like a great plan dude! What do you plan to do with your exhaust? Id replace your secondary cats with vibrant resonators and install a 135i muffler.

Can you make a forum thread and some YouTube videos once you get them installed?

Sure I'll make a video after. I have the M performance muffler and wasn't gonna do anything with the secondaries unless it needs it. I really don't want to get any drone

Personally, I see no point in keeping the secondaries because those headers are already catted. As long as you got your resonator In place and a good muffler (the M Per. Muffler is a good muffler) you wont need to worry about drone.

The end product should sound similar to this: https://youtu.be/hnKIucjAu8Y
