There should be at least a .5 second (if not more) difference between the two.
I realize that the G-tech isn't a precise instrument, however at this point it seems to be the only thing that'll give you/us a definitive result.
Unfortunately I found out that it's not that simple. You have to code the ECU to your car key at BMW dealer before it works, I mean every time you want to change to a different ECU box...

At this point in time Creative will have to step up and perform this enhancement on another car preferably a 6M-325i to get some real results.
I agree, a better trial is needed to prove the gains.

Anyhow I'm happy how the car runs and feels now.

I'm going to take couple of days off to do a mini vacation with my wife, so don't be surprised if you don't hear from me.

Btw, if somebody is interested to see what I drive when I feel fast, I posted few pictures of my baby to Corvette forum.

Or, like someone else mentioned about finding someone with an identical car to yours, in your area. That might be hard. Here in Vegas, I can't recall seeing ANY E91's.

like i said finn
i wud be glad to be the second guniea pig here
i dont have MT, but i do have STEP.
i know its not a MT, so not maximum results, but better than the xi wud get.
if creative wants to set up another dyno, we cud swap the manifold to my car and put in the ecu. however, with wat he said about reprogramming the ecu to the car everytime might be a pain in the ass here. iono...

obviously im only assuming, but i would think the reflash would only take a few days now that they have actually done one, i believe the first one took longer only because they actually had to write it but now you should be able to send it in and hopefully have it back within a week.

so i think what we are looking for goes as follows: someone with a 325i MT who has another car that they are willing to drive for a week or so, is willing to do dynos at little or no cost to themselves and is able to document this whole procedure. Does anyone on here fit that bill?

EDIT: also meant to mention that this person has to be willing to buy a intake manifold which i think goes for about 1k if you can find one

With regards to the length of time for a reflash...

Turner Motorsports does the reflash the day they receive your ECU and then send it back to you with overnight shipping.

I don't see why Creative would take 3-4 days now that they figured it out!
