    • Stock N55 dyno graph and video on pump gas after PAW mild flash tune, steptronic and manual

      Here are two flash tunes that were recently completed by PAW Motorsport for a couple customers. The first car is a completely stock 2011 335 other than the flash tune. The car is a 6 speed manual and is running 93 octane pump fuel. The second car is a 2011 automatic 335 also dyno'd on pump gas. As you can see, large gains throughout the entire curve on both cars. Remember, this is just the mild pump tune. Contact PAW Motorsport if interested.

      -Max. power increased of 50-49 Hp SAE at the wheels
      from 3000 - 5,600 revolutions per minute.
      -Max. torque of 85-65 FtLb at the wheels from 3,000 -
      4,600 revolutions per minute
      -Top speed and/or Rev limit increased at customer request.
      -Improved engine map cooling to handle the extra
      performance & improved reliability for long term use.

      -Pure driving enjoyment with smooth & spontaneous
      responsiveness.
      -No compromise of emissions standards, & fuel

        Ive worked out something with him. He is in the military, and he lives in Yonkers I believe. He is asking for a week leave to go to PR with his wife....during that time I will be taking the truck to Fabspeed to have a one off DP made (its different than an e9x pipe, its just one large 3.25" opening at the end) and while its there i will be pulling the DME and possibly sending it to PAW...the truck has a custom rear exhaust fabbed up by yours truly and welding done by a friend of mine.

        I still have to put the AR downpipe in the shop car, as well as get his special XI Vanguard fitment setup done....then off to PAW Click here to enlarge

        It's sort of as they stated, to prevent hitting the limiter which if you do it enough or hard enough can bend a valve.

        The N55 drops off too much to gain anything by revving it out but a higher limiter can actually give you a safety margin. Now with cams, heads, and some other improvements the higher redline may allow power gains.

        It's available for the DCT, just no graphs from an N55 dct car yet. I expect we should be getting those soon!

        You need to send your ECU in. It really isn't bad at all.

        Pricing for the tune is listed here, there is currently a special for BB members so jump on it: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...ree-trial-tune

        You don't need any additional changes for the DCT, it can handle up to 440 pound-feet.

        This is not torque pre se but shifting settings i saw in another forum these needed to be changed once power\torque was increased. some kind of cluth slip even the bmw performance kit for the n55 remaps the dct as per install kit details.

        Haven't seen any details on the N55 performance kit remapping the DCT differently as it isn't even officially out yet.

        See no reason why any settings would need to be changed.

        I knew it was coming (hence the front page post) just wasn't aware they were installing it already as I couldn't find anything official. If that is the price, great stuff, would you mind posting that in the N55 powerkit thread?

        The DCT is rated for 440 pound-feet. Software can't do anything with the DCT other than change the fluid pressure, that's it. The components are physically rated for 440 pound-feet, you won't be anywhere near the limit.
