Exclamation BM3 install tomorrow

What can I expect??

1) BM3
2) CP
3) BMS intake
4) H&R springs

My tech expects everything to be smooth but I want to get an idea of how much more power I should expect. Running on 93. Entry level stuff...

If you’re going stage 2 93 OTS, 350/380. Did you get DP as well?

No DP just the baby stage 1 for now.

Exclamation

First impressions so far are pretty impressive. Drove home yesterday and didn't get a chance to really test it out but I can certainly feel more power.

My tech says I'm probably just under 400hp but the torque is un "f" ing believable!! It pulls very hard. So for anyone on the fence with BM3 tune just get it and don't look back. Certainly the best bang for the buck.

Thanks to Mike at Extreme Power House for answering my newbie questions.

I'm glad I have a square set up on PS 4's for max grip and being able to rotate tires as I know I will be burning through rubber. I just can't imagine everyone else on Stage 2 + with all the extra's you can add to this car. You guys are INSANE! I love it!!!

I am now (finally) running FBO and bought a bm3 license. Looking forward to the flash soon, hope it is worth the hype! Just just your hype, but EVERYWHERE lol

Update on the tune...

Raced my wife in her 14 550xi and S-M-O-K-E-D HER...almost.

It was actually close as she was gaining since I blew her off the line. But the map my tech chose was the Transmission shift which very responsive! All in all with the "baby" stage 1 so far it's pretty darn impressive. I can't image Stage 2 with a bigger turbo, full FBO and E85, Meth, etc. I would probably end up in a tree.

I haven't dynoed it yet but the Sport display measured 380hp and 420tq so lets just say its better for sure.
