2 amps should charge a battery in about 8-10 hours so that should be a minimum.

I vote for one, I would take the time to read but a visual does help also.

Upgraded my 325i ECU with AA performance software last friday using Simon tool. It was easy and straight forward. Check engine soon lighted up but went away after few drives.

The car feels different in positive way. Now I have to watch for speed all the time. Cannot wait to run it on the track.

Def let us know how it goes. I'm down in Mia right now and I'm contemplating getting the AA tune to see if there's a difference from my current EC tune w/ the 3stage manifold

So I re-flashed it yesterday and the jerkiness when pressing on the throttle is still there. It's intermittent, but can be quite noticeable. My passengers noticed it as well. I'll see how it acts tomorrow and if it continues I'll flash it back to stock and see if the issue goes away.

That is weird like I mentioned before we do not make any changes that low in the rpm range. What gas are you using?

I've always filled up at the local Chevron with 93 octane.

I got the 3 stage manifold about two weeks ago and the AA stage 2 tune a couple days after that. My 325i feels like a totally different machine. I've always felt that the stock 325i w/ 215 bhp was way too underpowered. And driving with passengers was just depressing. lol. But now the car feels so much lighter. It made a world of difference. The car keeps pulling throughout the powerband and still feels very smooth.
I've been thinking about doing the 3 stage manifold upgrade since e90pilot brought it up years ago and once I heard about the AA stage 2 tune I couldn't resist.

I gotta say thanks to e90pilot for pioneering the manifold upgrade and AA for making an awesome tune!

Also give Mike over @ Jlevistreetwerks some love for helping me out with the tune.

Do you notice any drops in the powerband around 4.1K rpms?

Cool cool, I feel one around that number as well. Do you plan on getting a dyno?

Could I get a ride and feel the difference? No 3stage intake manifold mod for me, I'm too scared to touch it. I want my car to run for a couple more years.

i dont think so. honestly, even if you do dyno, its hard to compare to other cars numbers, to many variables involved (type of dyno, mods, mileage, etc.) i'm happy with how my car feels, just wish i knew if my car was faster or on par with the stock 330i. it should be, but never drove the 330i.

The biggest thing I wanted to see w/ your dyno is the power curve.

I can assure you though that w/ you having a 3-stage IM and an tune, you're at if not ahead of a stock 330. Right now, I'm putting out around 260-265hp, so you'll be able to hit that as your car adapts to the tune.

Just curious, does it make sense to get the latest ecu update from BMW before doing the aa tune? Please advise

I would reccomend against it. If there is nothing wrong with your car now, don't upgrade.
