Guys,

I have been busy with my work this week, but I have not heard back from Creative either. Maybe it's the spring break...

as soon as the dyno happens and is posted, its going to be a busy thread.
if theres a vendor that wants to get some big money, they should start a GB on 3stage intake manifolds...

Have you at least been able to verify that the flaps on the intake are moving?

Well, I think the flaps where moving already before the ECU tune. If you put your hand to where the flaps are and turn the ignition on, you can feel them moving. In case they would not move during driving you should see a noticeable decrease in power in some power band, depending on which stage they would be stuck.

I don't drive the Bimmer that often because it's my wife's car, but even she thinks it has more power. That being the case, I'm quite confident the power is there.

Back to back dyno with standard ECU will confirm this.

Btw, I couldn't find the damn accelerometer last weekend.

i say that as a temporary substitute for a dyno
can u get ur hands on like a G-Timer?
just time the cars 0-60mph with the ECU and without the ECU.
easily done with the timer, and u can take a picture of the old time and new time and post it here asap.
i think that a significant increase in power should show some difference in time.
although not as accurate as dyno, its something? just imo..
