The moment the IS is tuned the overboost function is lost as it is a bunch a crap and is replaced by the same exact TQ numbers a tuned n54 would get.

BTW, 'N55 w 7 DCT" is a 2011 135i. Simple research is key... lol
I understand the difference between WHP & Torque, I just think you are mixing up the tuned & non-tuned numbers. So keeping it simple, non-tuned = 27hp & 39 tq adv for the 'is'
Talking about both being tuned was never a topic of conversation because the N54 numbers were not mentioned. How much gain would I get for $850?

And yeah, forgot about the 135i with the 7dct, probably because we were discussing the 3 series.... my bad!
