        I just installed my Active 8 box on my M4. It is a 6spd and I have Zima ceramic DP's as well. So far I am blown away with this product from Active! Being the impatient fool I am, I purchased the JB4 and had that on, but found it quite edgy( power was not smooth ). This is the polar opposite with the Active box. It almost makes the car feel less powerful. I can say this is just a perception. The car is very fast! The JB has a 8bit processor and the Active a 64bit. Enough said. I am no stranger to Active and their excellence, and they never cease to impress. Hitting the dyno tomorrow and will post up baseline vs this setup. Here are my toys Click here to enlarge

        Ok so you already have a baseline, excellent.

        Now make sure you give us an overlay.

        Hi all. Hit the dyno yesterday after installing Zima ceramic DP's and Active 8 module. I took this pic of overlay against my stock run. Click here to enlarge I will do a more in-depth write when I get more data sheets. 520 wtq and 488 whp on 94 octane. BEAST!

        Yes we were very impressed! Active got this tune extremely clean. So smooth. I will get you all the data sheets tomorrow. We also ran a e60 M5 with full active exhaust, evolve headers, under drive, and Active custom Alpha N tune 8700rpm! It did 520whp 390wtq. Sounded fantastic!

        Sticky,
        Here are my dyno sheets from last Saturday with the M4 with Active 8 and Zima downpipes. It was 9 Celsius (48F ) and 52 humidity that day. This dyno is a Dyno dynamics and calibrated to read as Dynojet. It does say "flywheel" on the charts but this is at the wheels. Evolve uses the same dyno and their sheets read the same. It is in the software of the dyno. Green is my baseline from last September.
