    • Active Autowerke S63 V8 Twin Turbo X5 M and X6 M Flash Tune Software Available +87 wheel torque

      Active Autowerke has released their X5M and X6M twin turbo V8 software. This is a flash tune available for either 91 or 93 octane. Active has provided a dyno showing nice gains through the curve. Do not just focus on the peak numbers as they do not tell the whole story. At 4400 rpm the gains are 86 whp. The torque gains through the curve are impressive. However, we do not know if the dyno was on 91 or 93 octane. We are guessing 93 was used and would like to see a separate dyno for each. The tune retails for $1500.

        Another case of tiny turbos choking all the fun.............. only 17whp gain. It would make a BIG difference in driving when you aren't racing though.

        17 peak, but 80+ through the curve in certain areas. Some aftermarket turbos will do wonders for the peak figures on this motor.

        Hmmm, twin Borg Warner EFR 7670's anyone?

        Would be good for 700-1200+ horsepower.

        We will see some huge numbers out of this motor. Fueling will likely be a challenge but with top mount turbos like that... I mean, it is going to happen.

        Looks N54ish... I wonder what the boost curve looks like.

        Tuners need to get in the habit of posting boost curves...
