I made a LOTTT more power and I mean A LOT in may 2011 on the dyno so I'm not sure what you are on about? No adjustments whatsoever to the tranny or it's software.

That is why the torque was reduced in most of the auto tunes until some changes were made in the summer of 2011.

I had flashed two particular cars where the agreement with the owner was that I would pay for the dyno plus give them a discount on the tune. Darin was one of those people, (the other was a white 335iS 6MT) but both never took the car to the dyno even after I asked on various occasions. Darin got his tune on May 9, 2011 and I expected him to get to the dyno within a few weeks so I could post them here, but it never happened. But now he posts this dyno comparison and trashes the tune. That is disappointing when I was paying for the dyno and gave him a discount as an incentive. (same with the white 335iS)

And of course I offered Darin a new updated tune, but he never came to get it. This is part of my email to him from November of 2011:

I was also wondering if you can take the car to the dyno since that was part of the deal for the discount you got.
I also have a new, more powerful tune for auto cars now .... we could possibly dyno it also.

The changes made were for his mods, but it was not tuned on the dyno. If he had taken it to the dyno I would have made an update for it.

Wait, you tune cars? Aren't you the guy who buys the tunes from Europe and then installs them with your laptop? That's what every post in recent history suggests.

So much torque? LOL, I put down 498 wtq and my tranny's been fine for another 50k since? Your dyno is showing 368..... There's hundreds of other members who could say the same as well.

I know the white 335is you are speaking of... he got pulled on by an off the shelf piggy with 0 other mods I guess he didn't bother to goto the dyno after that.
