    New Scorcher Tuner for N54, N55, N20 Series

    Corona, CA - advanced FLOW engineering announces the release of the new SCORCHER Modules for the BMW N20, N26, N54 and N55 engines, P/N 77-46301 (N55 Sensor 1), 77-46302 (N54), 77-46303 (N20/N36), 77-46304 (N55 Sensor 2).

    The SCORCHER Module is designed to alter the pressure sensor signals to increase boost to an optimum level throughout the entire RPM range. The result is increased performance and improved throttle response across a broad power band as well as reduced turbo lag. In recent testing these modules produced up to 53 hp and 80 lbs. x ft. of torque. No cutting, drilling or splicing is required in this hassle-free 30 minute installation. Factory electronic accessories are not affected by installing the SCORCHER.

    This module comes with a built-in blue L.E.D. light to show your module is powered up and functioning correctly. SCORCHER modules are 100% tested, have output protection on all signals and are built to a 0.1% tolerance on components in critical areas. Signal filtering is used for a smooth response. These modules work great on vehicles in stock trim, but are optimized to maximum performance with use of aFe Power performance parts (intakes, filters, exhaust, etc.).

    aFe SCORCHER modules use OE style "all weather" connectors which require no modification to your factory harness, providing a secure factory-style fit and hassle-free installation. The housing is constructed of aluminum with a hard-coat, black anodized finish and uses automotive grade TXL wire with high-heat and chemical resistance. SCORCHER Modules come with a 2-year limited warranty. SCORCHER Modules retail for around $502.95 and are available in stores now.

    Great power for a simple connection. Is this a tmap connect? How does this compare with the JB+?

    It competes with our JB+ on the N54 platform, and our N55 and N20 Stage1 tune on those platforms. Click here to enlarge

    Maybe if your definition of "competes" is skewed. The JB+ goes for almost half the price Click here to enlarge

    I was being generous with the term. Click here to enlarge

    On the N20 Stage1 for example we offer MAF and solenoid control, and a user interface, for around 30% less than their basic tune. But they have a big name in the industry and I'm sure they sell plenty based on that alone. They are priced around what our N20 JB4 goes for.

    Does the JB+ have a blue LED?

    Didn't think so.

    Regardless, always nice to see options. Even if they are competing in a niche that is already filled. Good gains for what it is nonetheless.

    Good call; I didn't even notice that.

    Terry, new feature request for the JB4: double rainbow unicorn mode. Can you work this into the Future Use D field? Thanks.

    Hey guys, the primary difference in the aFe Scorcher module vs. other modules is the tunes are developed around the use of aFe and other performance parts (intake, exhaust, etc.). We did some on vehicle testing with other aftermarket modules and we found that some of them kicked a check engine light and went into limp mode once you started stacking intakes and exhaust components to the vehicle. We also spent some additional time on more heavy duty housings and the addition of the blue LED was just to answer the question if the unit was powered up or not. We are always tinkering with our vehicles at the shop and found we might be able to come up with a new mousetrap. Thanks for the feedback.

    Fair enough. AFE makes great products, no denying that. And I for one like the LED, but with the name scorcher why not use orange? :-)

    Which tunes did you find "kicked" a check engine light when you put intake exhaust on?

    We had a Racechip and a Berger Stage 1 on our F30. We had a JB4 N54 Stge 3 on our N54 and we had a JB Diesel kick a cold on our X5D. The check engine lights all happened when we added intakes, exhaust, etc. Let me know if you need any further info. Thanks, J

    It's nonsense but no reason to even respond. Any check engine light has a direct cause. You read the specific code and then address whatever the code indicates you need to address. As a general statement I would suggest a TMAP tune like the $279 JB+ or AFE "scorcher" for unmodified vehicles only. Once you add downpipes, etc, you're going to need a real tune like the JB4 or Cobb.
