AFAIK and what Terry was saying yea. They're pretty much the same, that's how he did the beta tune for it, just plug n play.

I'm not calling these guys or anyone out. It just seems too good to be true... @Terry@BMS What do you think about the S55 ECU? "

The nose could barely stay down in the lower gears with less boost so i'd have to see them line up. For we can definitively say 425 isn't enough!

The issue is sorting the chassis and that is up to you and whatever you put it in.
I've watched a lot of their vidz and none of the customers were using the motors for highway/top-end runs. Either street cars or dragsters. The option of running one of those motors for this purpose has been available for a long time so it must mean something that nobody has done so. "

This sounds like GM all over again, where Chevrolet, Pontiac and Buick had the same cars with slight differences in styling and interior equipment.
In a way they kind of do. Prospective buyers will cross shop the Turbo S (200k) and the Huracan (200k+), so they're in the same ball park. "

It certainly is not going quite as smoothly as some had hoped. It might even be better if Porsche was still its own entity. "

" Well that was pretty fast. As reported last week the M3 / M4 S55 engine control unit has been cracked. Keep in mind this is very early in the flash tuning process of the new M3 and M4 but there are multiple tuners with the ability to flash the ECU out there with many more to come. Jailbreak Tuning posted the first Dynojet results of their flash tune and the result on 91 octane pump fuel is an increase of 20 peak horsepower at the wheels.

Obviously peak horsepower does not tell the whole story especially on the newer BMW turbo motors as the gains in the mid-range are in the 50 wheel horsepower range. The torque curve is much fatter and the peak torque figure increases by 42 lb-ft at the wheels.

People will obviously being comparing these flash figures to the BMS piggyback tune figures. As of today, piggyback tuning shows greater horsepower and torque gains. It will be interesting to see how these two approaches play out and the way they play out will likely be reminiscent of the N54 tuning scene in which each approach has its place with many people using both for the optimum setup.

Regardless, the flash tuning era of the S55 inline-6 motor is officially underway.
