    • The F10 M5 S63TU V8 has some potential - Gintani Stage I dyno tune results, +38.3 wheel horsepower

      There was some concern that there may not be much room to gain with a tune on the new M5/M6 with their S63TU motors. After all, the S63TU in those cars versus the S63 in the X5M/X6M has more boost at 22 psi versus 17 psi and higher compression at 10.0:1 versus 9.3:1. Fortunately, there is still some room in the higher strung S63TU as Gintani demonstrated with their Stage I dyno tune on 91 octane California pump gas.


      Peaks horsepower gains are 38.3 wheel horsepower on the Gintani Dyno Dynamics which keep in mind reads lower than a dynojet. At 4700 rpm, gains are 67 wheel horsepower. That is a very large chunk to pick up through the curve. The Stage I tune offers considerable gains throughout the entire curve, well done Gintani.

      This is just the Stage I tune and we will see far more for this motor. Good to know higher compression and more boost does not stop the F10 M5 and F13 M6 from having room to play with on the stock turbos even on pump gas.

        I understand your position.

        The difference between the N54 in 135i and 1M - Vs - The difference in the N63 and S63.

        Exactly, it's night and day.

        From my understanding. The tunes on the F10 M5 are done using a hacked BMW programmer/diagnostic tool. Some of the so called tunes are just uploading a higher power version (advertised by some around 640PS / 780Nm) of the BMW development file & it has 315km/h Vmax. Thus, no real tuning by tuner... just writting a BMW signed file.

        On the other had, there's a TRUE tuning solution where some few have access & testing now for the F10 M5 including the F30/F40 M3 Datafiles =)

        I'm sure some of the tunes are exactly as you stated. Some do have access to the ECU. I don't believe this is just a BMW file especially considering the result and timetable and that nobody else has shown these gains yet on 91 octane.

        Regardless, we are going to see a lot more coming.

        Interesting that BMW has different files available like that though.
