I'm not sure if AA does this, but it may be an option for you if you don't mind pulling the unit yourself.
We ship the ecu back the same day we get it so its only 2-3 days without your car

No you will need the tune plus the tool. Msrp is $499 if you go to a shop near you.

A secondary cat delete and this tune are the last steps in my car. My 3.38 lsd just got in (had a 3.64 it broke, I think the 3.38 will be a nice in between).

Does this tune raise the rev limiter? With the shorter gearing it would be nice to have a couple hundred extra rpm for auto x and track days (more so for autocross).

Also, my 330i has 124,000 miles on it now, but is serviced at a high level and runs just as strong as the day I got it. I imagine this tune is a little leaner than the stock. Will this effect long term durability? We have 93 octane here, and there is a station that has non ethenol 93, and it doesn't get super hot here. Would a cooler thermostat help things? Dpes the fan come on sooner with this tune?

I just dont want to be at a track day when it's 85 degrees out and have issues.

We can do a secondary cat delete. Its an option we made available not to long ago actually.

The revlimiter on a auto usually switches on its own at 6800 even after we make the changes.

My car is a stick, and I have no intention of driving to miami to delete the seconary cats

Does the rev limiter get raise on a stick shift car?

We do not do it but we are able to.

I was referring to the software part of the secondary delete.

Would this tune work on a European Spec N52 engine (the 265 hp) without problems?

hi andrew..interested in getting the simon tool but few questions I have..
1. will it work with euro n53 3.0L from a 325i (220hp)
2. what gains can I expect from same
3. do u ship to cork,republic of ireland - if not do you have a european distributor?
4. should I in the future get a 3stage manifold, are new flashes onto the tool at extra cost and how much do they cost?
5. since i have european n53 what other mods in your experience are useful additions making full use of the simon tool?
6. anyone on the forum have used this for similar n53 engine and feedback?
sorry i hope its not too much to ask..any replies from the forum-ers are also appreciated..thanks

Hi Andrew,

Just got my tune last week and extremely happy. If I were to get a secondary cat-delete will I see gains with my existing tune or will I have to get a new file uploaded to exploit the cat-delete?

Thanks

1. Its a different tune but we can do it.
2. You should see 20-25 hp
3. We can ship it anywhere
4. you can bolt a 3 stage up to the tune you get from us. No tune changes unless you are on the dyno so we can see afr's ect...
5.Exhaust, 3 stage, headers

Should I get the flash after I get all my performance mods? (headers, scoops, exhaust, intake, etc..)
