Am I seeing a 20hp gain over stock now? And am I correct saying the new tune is red and the old AA tune is green?

I assume from the dyno that we are looking at a 330i with the 3-stage manifold. Gains are looking very promising. The 300hp NA e90s are coming...

On another note, any new tunes for the 328i, Andrew?

Green is the stage 1 the customer came in with. The new tune is in red. If it were a fourth gear run it would seperate the lines much more unfortunately the car wouldn't dyno in 4th for some reason.

Correct the graph is a 3rd gear run on an automatic with stage 2 AA flash.

328's are still using the same flash as before which is still a very powerful flash. There are many dyno's floating around the forums.

I only bring this up b/c I know any euro coding done for the Z4 needs the e46 cable/adapter as opposed to the e9x cable.

If it works, I'd be more than happy to post reviews on zpost, z4-forum, etc.

Btw, for those with n52 flashes - do any of you guys track your cars? Don't care about stoplight racing or "kill" stories but curious for those who actually push their cars on the track, what has been your experience so far? Any CEL?

That definitely is an option but least preferable to me. Can't really be without the car for that long, would go to a local vendor but even they apparently need the car for a day or two.

We can have it shipped out same day we receive it.

Return over night shipping is an option for a low cost as well.

Does the stage 2 flash work with the N51?

No the 325 and 330 only.

All others will receive the stage 1.

Andrew I Have a 325 with stage 3 intake manifold and a remus exhaust, I did my AA tune summer of 2011. I was wondering if I have this software and if I don't how much to upgrade? Also does my car have similar performance of a 330i or worse? Also how much Hp gain over the AA tune I have now and how much Hp at the flywheel?

Edit: 325 and 330 will work with stage 2 regardless of manifold. Car needs to have DME msv70 to work with stage 2.

How can we check if we have DME MSV70 before pulling the trigger on this? Safe to assume similar Stage 2 tune gains without 3-stage manifold?

Stage 2 looks worth it!

I am VERY happy with the stage 2. I had it done by the great guys at PSI here in Orlando. I had the original tune installed so I am basing my review off that.

The new tune is butter smooth with constant power through the entire RPM band in every gear. The throttle lag has also been reduced even further, it is really responsive now!

With the new tune, from about 5500 to 6500 the car flies, as seen in the dyno. It's amazing really what the valve tronic editing has done to the overall feel of the car.

With traction off I could get serious wheel spin in first. I also got wheel spin starting in M2 from a dead stop!

I really enjoy this tune and I highly recommend it to everyone. No issues so far. I know this sounds funny but it feels really close to a stock 335. Please don't flame me, I have driven both. Yes the 335 has more torque but this tune should be putting a 330I with intake/exhaust in the 270hp range at the crank.

So, everyone GET IT NOW.

Props to AA and PSI! Great job
