Kraftwerk Power Module

Hi

Has anyone had any experience with these power modules?

They have just released a new one which they claim the following for my 2005 E90 330i.

HP - from 258 to 297 (+39)
Torque - from 300 to 345 Nm (+45)

I always thought that you couldn't do much with these V6 aspirated engines.

See below

"Performance Plug & Drive module. The power module is an external module, so no warranty is in jeopardy.

Our Hi-Tech system contains many smart technical features, and is the result of many months of design, testing and durability trials.

The Power Module is an external additional control unit. It is internally sealed and cannot be detected by general manufacturers service procedures.

It is also not possible that software updates can disturb the performance of the module. Unlike engine management "chipping" and "flash" upgrades, it never gets overwritten during service enhancements."

Sounds like a scam. What's working harder to push out all that extra power? They're claiming near 335i levels of power without a turbo...

Nothing is impossible, but if you want to increase the output of your N52, you should look at the 3-stage intake manifold modification that a lot of the guys in the UK do. The later model of your engine produces 272 crank HP, but to achieve that, BMW had to design a new intake manifold AND use updated software. So I very much doubt that an aftermarket tuning box is going to offer much at all, other than a dent in your wallet and a placebo effect. If you want 300 crank HP, do the 3 stage intake manifold mod, the software update, and look at a set of custom tuned-length extractors. You'll be humming then, and the noise from the (straight 6 by the way) will be epic!
