BMW Sport Display and Dinan Sport Tuner

Does anyone know if the BMW Sport Display will show the additional HP and Torque being generated by the Dinan Sport Tuner? I wasn't sure if BMW would recognize the extra HP/Torque or not.

I just installed it and have it set at Sport+ which should be good for 20 HP and 25-30 lbs of Torque. However my Sport Display Gauges show STOCK numbers.

I am not sure if the Tuner is not working correctly or if the Sport Displays will not pick up the change.

Any advice is appreciated.

The sport displays do not reflect data from the Dinan tunes.

Sport displays will not pick up the change. You need something like P3 with physical boost tap reading.

Pressure readings ??

So when I am in Sport+ mode the pressure reading is negative 3.8-4.08. I can get the peak reading up to 5-6, once to 10.

When in Race the starting reading is -1-0, but can't get the max pressure above 5.

I have no idea if these readings are correct or not. I am using the D-Sport app for IOS (Apple) devices. Attached is a screen shot in Sport+ mode.

Hey all, Still relatively new here but I installed my Sport Tuner the other day and I have to say im very impressed. I was thinking ok, I should get a bit of boost in power but nothing drastic. However the torque bump is addicting, butt dyno tells me the dyno curve doesnt lie and most of the power to be had is down low. This is where you spend 98% of your driving anyway so its loads of fun. Install quoted 5 min. If you actually take 5 min. to install this you are overthinking it. Its insanely easy, use a flat head screw driver to pop the sensor off and plug the new ones in. I zip tied the module up and behind the wire loom so its almost impossible to see.

I agree except that I can bury the torque and HP stock limits just accelerating onto the freeway with a lot more rpm to go. It's fun to do once or twice.

It's a booster piggyback tune. Just like JB+ (which I had) it isn't the smoothest one.
