Chip for e90 2006 330i?

Lots of chips for the 325, but none for the 330i. No word on upsolute working. Any chips that do work on this model? N/A engines aren't easy to chip tune. The 330i doesn't have the turbo and the torque is lacking.

The chips or engine flashes work best on Turbo engines. This is due to stock engines running on lower boost settings for durability and reliability. Evos, STI's and 335i's perform very well to engine tunes where they adjust the boost, air/fuel mixture and rev limiters.

Stock NA engines just don't have that much in them available to be done. I know the Audi S4 has a chip that allow you to pull out another 10hp but that is it. The catch is where are they going to find this additional torque and hp in a car that is naturally aspirated?

NA engines rely on air/fuel modifications as far as chips go.

No BMW stuff to be found on their website. Just Acura and Honda. It also does NOT appear on the JLeviSw website either.

In Sweden, (where I live). There are several tuners offering remapping of 330s. Usually the gain is 15-20hp and 20-25 nm of torque... Although the increase of power is noticeable (and measureable) the often claimed lowered fuel consumption is heavily exaggerated...

I saw it on JLSW's website a long time ago but they removed it at some point.
