    I'm kind of with Laloosh on this and I've tuned more cars for cp-e or using cp-e products than anyone from cp-e. Basically all of the tuners are going to turn the boost up to get the highest number. Using the standback, this is cake - simply type the number in the software. It's then up to the turbos to hit b/c the standback will slam the wastegates shut until it hits the boost target or the motor melts. I'm pretty sure BMS and Shiv could accomplish the same thing though I don't know how easy it is to change the appropriate variables on those systems. Because of this it just seems that all the tune piggyback tunes will hit the same number. I think they'll handily beat the flash tunes.

    Definitely need to log knock/spark advance. That may play a factor. The car is likely to be knocking all over the place while the turbos are struggling to hit 19 psi.

    I think this is awesome and it will be great for all the tuners and M3 guys to get together!

    To solve the issue, have a set boost amount. See who makes the most at a certain boost level.

    There will be customer cars as well, so if tuners are not being honest their own customers will keep them in check.

    Lemme bring my diesel, as long as it's a dyno that can pull torque #'s off my car....I'm sure Terry (BMS) wouldn't mind, and people would love to see the #'s, I think. Click here to enlarge

    Received a response from Vishnu today, they are going to choose a representative as it just does not make too much sense for Shiv to drive or fly down, and I agree. Completely reasonable solution to the issue of the distance.

    I'd be in. I haven't had my Powerchip software re-installed yet. I could put my car on the dyno with the stock software, let them reflash me, and then dyno again.

    Nah, I already spent the money on Powerchip and since there's no way to resell it I'd be throwing the money away with another tune.

    Powerchip is on board.

    Another message sent to GIAC, who is the last one left.

    I believe I've secured DTUK, Sticky (for the diesel). Not sure which tunes, but I'm hoping for both. Next up, VAC.

    Nice work! How are you planning to switch them off, run your JBD and then switch to the other one? How much time does that take?

    JBD takes maybe 5 minutes to remove (4 screws on the cowel, unplug from the ECU, unplug the loopback, plug in the stock ECU connector, 4 screws back in the cowel), and from what I can tell, the DTUK units are about the same (one unit requires an additional connection to the boost sensor).

    That is great news! Hopefully Vac gets back to you.

    So, you're basically just looking for the highest output/peak #'s?

    I suppose it'd be almost impossible to get baseline numbers to verify the actual performance increase from each setup.

    No, not at all. Basically looking for an independent overview of the market. No BS, no nonsense, just the graphs to present to the consumer.

    Not impossible to get baseline numbers at all.

    Just got confirmation from OE tuning.... this is going to be big, maybe too big. Going to have to balance this.

    Still waiting on GIAC... sent 2 e-mails, tweeted them, nothing.

    Is it to much to ask for them to even respond? Everyone else has managed to.... and they only needed 1 e-mail.

    Send Austin a PM or email. I am sure they would be interested especially with the launch of GIAC stage 2 and the map switcher.Click here to enlarge
