    Finally some dyno results at the wheels for the new Dinan Dinantronics piggyback tune for the F80 M3 and F82 M4. Dinan announced this tune last month at a price point of $2499. Dinan's claimed figures are that horsepower rises from 425 to 516 at the crank. Dinan does hit 516 horsepower here but they do not exactly hit a gain of 91 crank horsepower. If that is confusing to you here is the explanation. The M3/M4 to begin with do not have an output for 425 horsepower. As the baseline shows, the car has roughly ~420 horsepower at the wheels in stock form putting it around 500 crank horsepower to begin with based on the classic Dynojet 15% drivetrain loss rule. Now, on the Dynojet peak horsepower with the Dinan tune rises by roughly 20 horsepower at the wheels. That puts the car over 516 horsepower at the crank using traditional driveline loss standards but it is not a gain of 91 crank horsepower. This is the problem with Dinan using crank figures these days instead of wheel output figures which provide a much more accurate picture. Additionally, dynocharts such as the ones you see below would likely not be favorable to Dinan. The horsepower delta is not what Dinan claims but the peak horsepower is what Dinan claims. The torque gains are greater though with close to a peak 50 lb-ft increase at the wheels. Dinan claims peak torque rises by 83 lb-ft at the crank so he is in the right range when looking at the torque. This Dynojet is having some issues so there are some data drops in the 5000 to 5500 rpm range but we still get an idea of what the tune is doing. Unfortunately, we do not have an air/fuel readout to verify Dinan's claims about superior control in this area. Does the Dinan tune add horsepower and torque? Yes. Is it very mild? Yes. Is it worth the money? Well, someone thought it was.

    Mind if I give it a shot? It will be stacked with a JB4 G5 on a 335xi MT. Unless Wedge can integrate your changes with my map, since my current setup has totally eliminated throttle closure (which is nice), I'd hate to reintroduce that. Also, what timing does yours target? I'm at 13.5 at peak torque and through most higher loads.

    williams replied to a thread xdrive front drives question in N54
    No matter how you rig it, the transfer case will always be a power loss as well a place for concern when torque numbers rise on these cars. Im an Xdrive as well, Id be content as a frog on a lily pad if I could have some control over the transfer case. Even if I could only dial it down a bit. Say something like the super-cars that are all wheel drive where 70-80% goes the rear and the left over is sent forward. This will limit wheel slip on the front, as it is possible (open differentials) and usually a narrower tire up front. So the guys with an aggressive stagger will see the TC light come on and complain they are all wheel drive. Power will always find the path of lease resistance. Long rant over, give me a way to dial the transfer case down a bit or to where it can only do half its duty cycle, which is stock 50/50 split, let me do a 25/75 split.

    Ron1n glad to see you Anyway I concur with the above I deleted the DPF SC EGR and car is running better than before let alone an increase in HP and Tq. I did a roundtrip run and got 160 miles to a quarter of the tank the most I got before was 110 miles so there was and increase in mpg's
