Anyone go from e40 to e50?

I'm currently protuned for e40 with my FBO setup. I wanted a little more power but would it really be worth it to go up another 10%? Opinions are welcomed!

You would need to revise the tune to get more power but you should get more from the E50 map. How does your LPFP handle E40?

Seems to be fine so far. I just wanna know if it's worth spending the extra money for a new map and my time data logging etc.

Everything I read says that after E50, there is not much to gain. That's what I've read not what I know!

I think Shiv is proving this not to be the case with his latest maps. It just takes turning up the timing some (at least that is the extent of my understanding of what he is doing)
