Things are moving along pretty well. The exhaust system is about ready for testing. We are also going to be installing some products from vendors on this site to give an outside review for the members of E90post.

You expect a non-biased review from a vendor that will be selling their own products on here?

Thank you! You can expect some no nonsense real data from us to help make your decision!

Well considering we are doing reviews on products that we do not make nor will be competing against I don't see how they will be biased.

I want to note that in the few posts you have made in this thread and the exhaust thread you have come off brash or as if you have some unspoken issues with us or our entry into this arena. We are very upstanding company and we are not here to push any buttons or make any waves. We operate on a very strict set of guidelines that allows for a good relationship with not only other vendors but competing vendors as well. We believe even in a competitive market companies can get along and respect each other and we hope that the supporters of these companies can do the same.

We will not bash or take shots at another company. We let our products and results speak for themselves. If we find a company is offering a better product than we can make we would rather carry that product than offer an inferior one. I do hope you take this to heart and understand that we are in this for the betterment of the N54 community, not just as a business looking to make money.

I welcome AMS with open arms. If I remember correctly I even posted in your original thread saying I was happy to see AMS entering this arena

maybe I just come off as an asshole.. it wouldn't be the first time i've been told that


/edit/ this is that original thread i could have sworn i posted in here welcoming you. Apparently I didn't...

... anyways. I come from the JDM world... so I know all about AMS and respect the company and its products

No harm done, I know first hand how easy it can be to be misunderstood via a post on the internet. We appreciate your input no matter how brash or candy coated it may be LOL. I just want to make sure you understand our intentions in this market. Thanks!

Thank you! I hope we can come out with a product that meets all the expectations of the site. We really do put everything we have into our products and the N54 market will be no different. I am going to make sure I cross my T's and dot my i's around you Mr. JPsimon. That's a good thing, we love customers that are very detail oriented and intuitive.

I would be happy with 11s without turbo upgrade...but that probly puts too much stress on stock turbos at that power level?

If AMS does half as good on the upgrades for the 335 as they have and are still doing for Evo,s ,we are going to be very happy campers.I had 2 Evo,s so i am speaking from experience.BTW they have the quickest Evo 8 in the world right now.That my friends is saying a whole lot.

when is the ECU re-flash coming

Have you done any ECU re-flashing yet for the 335? Can you give us an idea of when you will be ready to start re-flashing and tuning customer Bimmers.

Thanks.

it really depends when we settle on something we like. We try many different variations of a part to make sure we are making it as power potent and efficient as possible. I do not expect many of parts to be ready until late winter.

No flashing just yet as we still looking into programs to do it and also testing what is on the market currently.

I am going to take tonight to toss on the beta 1.2 JB3 that Terry sent us. hopefully I will be able to toss it on the dyno soon and get some numbers for you guys.

Rixst3r is also sending us one of those great boost gauges he offers. looks like it worth every penny. I will be doing a full install of that along with a thread / review to follow
