I'm getting the tuned file sent back to me tomorrow morning. Now I just need to find time to install this manifold.




Cant wait to hear your review tomorrow!

Andrew, Somewhere in this thread you said something about bringing the 325 to 330 hp without a 3 stage... Am I correct in thinking you can do the same with a 328?

Yeah they will all be extremely close in peak numbers after tuning. They are all n52's after all.

Sitting at the dyno shop waiting on my turn. Hoping to see 215 at the wheels. Might be a bit out of reach since my only mods are the three stage intake, k&n and the tune.

I hope you can hit the magic number of 230whp with the Stage2 tune :-)

They did 6 runs. First several they kept kicking down to 2nd or 3 rd. Finally I guess he just peeped to 4k rpm and went from there. I mentioned the kick down in the gas pedal, but he must have not heard me.

They attempted the runs in 4th gear. I agree with the heat. I could only let the car cool for about 45 min before we ran.

Those 2 runs with the dips right away look odd.

I don't disagree. Not all that impressed with the shop I went to. No other choice though, they are the closest and its a 4 hour trip each way.

4th gear pulls are too long for this car.

My dyno shop does it in 3rd as the temps in 4th go high very fast.

Numbers look low tbh with the mods you got. I managed to get better numbers than that with just a PE,PI and 3stage manifold. Again what matters is the delta between your stock and mod dyno results.

2012 328i Xdrive - will this work?

Hi all,

This is my first post. I have a 2012 328i Xdrive wagon with 230hp/ 200 ft/lbs 6cyl stock. Will this tune work for me? Wasn't sure if the addition of Xdrive means I am out of luck. If it does work what gains should I expect?

Thanks

*btw- car is bone stock except I immediately cut out that horrid carbon filter in the air box and put in the AFE.
