Guys that bought the Turbo Tuner

Just want feedback from you guys that have purchased the turbo tuner? Are you happy with it? Any concerns with overheating? Does it give you low end response or just high end when you punch the accelerator?
Would you recommend it?
Lastly, those of you with Shiv's proceed please don't respond. I'm looking for something easy to install that's safe and I know Shiv's product is the best on the market, I just can't imagine putting it in and out, seems too complicated for my unmechanical brain.
Thanks,
Steve

The Turbo Turner is a great product. I've had one for two months and the only time I want more power is when I'm on this site. But in the car, I never want for more.

Honestly, the Turbo Tuner is most felt in the last 75% of the throttle. But that's not to say the first 25% is flat <---It feels like the standard car but it gets through this part faster and on to a more muscular top end rush.

Hope that helps.

1. I dit not have any Check Engine Lights or any overheating problems with the Turbo Tuner.
2. I believe that the extra power delivered by the Turbo Tuner is directly related to the amount of throtle and not really the RPM. Whether you are at 2000 RPM or 5000 RPM, if you press the gas pedal past a certain point, you will feel the extra boost surge. Power delivery is not as smooth or consistend along the RPM band as with the Procede.
3. Very easy install.
4. Overall good product, good value.

I love it. It's perfect for me and how I drive. Like D90man states, it pretty much kicks in after 1/4 throttle. It gives the torque and surge I originally expected out of the 335i but didn't get. Fun as hell to drive around town even at low speeds. You can feel/hear the extra growl it gives. No issues at high speeds either (cruising at 140 mph on the autobahn) and I never have an issue with my engine overheating. Bottom line: get it. I may later get the ProCede but TT is performing exactly how I want it for now.

I've had the turbo tuner almost as long as i've had the car which is coming up on 2 months...

Install took me less than a minute....

No issues with check engine lights, not driveability issues.. I tend to drive the car to its limits when im on the highway and have hit 140mph+ numerous times yet have not seen the oil temp go past 250 degrees. This is from living in orlando/tampa, fl where the temps have been getting to 90+ degrees outside in the afternoon.

However, i will eventually want more power out of the car as it will get old for me so im considering the AA xede in a few months.

Turbo Tuner is a very good value for the performance it offers. I could definitely feel the difference in power/torque @ all rpms/ even in " D " mode. no issues w/ overheating and check engine lights thus far..knock on wood.

I dont think many people on here have access to that information. But since you brought it up, I might connect the GT1 tester to my car one day and go out on a little drive to see what it looks like.

Got my TT the other day. It seems like the engine has adapted over the last week and there's definitely more pull. A lot of fun.

Hey guys! Almost all of the Turbo Tuners that I sold to have been E90post.com members. I've sold about 16 units with no complaints.

I have 4 more in stock so PM me if you're interested.
