Axel, the "mini" mention was not intended to compare the two vehicles, but rather to demonstrate the unintended consequences of just slapping a larger IC in a car without the necessary R&D.

I have read turboeddie's experience, but that's a CXRacing IC and unless I missed it I did not see any empirical data to suggest the CXRacing IC is of any benefit either, well other than lowering IT temps. TE also complained of turbo lag, although he did go on to later state it was there before, but the way I understood it sounds like it was more pronounced post IC install - hence the honorable mention.

I hope this IC proves to be the contrary example in the 335d, I REALLY do, but it's going to take more than someone's butt dyno to convince me.
