    Hi,

    no the tuning will be fine at Undercover.

    The software automatically adapts to changes in temperature, pressure etc.

    You have to be in a seriously high altitude with hot weather with high humidity to have a custom map made.

    The DME is far far more sophisticated than you might think.

    Anyhow, we do not need a dyno to do small calibration changes, data logs with bmw logger are working extremely well.

    As an example, Steven's car made the correct power with the first developed file.

    j/k

    I am really torn, love the Evolve products but the price tag is steep, I am going to have to get over this sticker shock.
    Ha! Every Evolve customer talks like this. There is no comparison. Go ahead an buy something else, then start adding up the flaws and see what perfection would be worth to you Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge And how the AA lvl3 feels at 30 degrees!!!! Holy $#@!! Crazy this morning, lol

    We don't need to post compressor maps, everyone can just look at dyno sheets, run against some "equal" powered Vortech powered cars, or ride/drive in opposing supercharged M3s to notice the difference. A car with the Vortech drives like an on/off switch that won't be "on power" until you go above 6500 RPMs, while a Rotrex powered car puts down the same HP, a much wider powerband, and TQ across the entire rev range that won't force you to constantly rev the $#@! out the motor. This explains how LM (on a lower power kit) was able to keep even and trap the same speed as a higher powered ESS kit.

    We know that the Rotrex 7-7.5 psi, Exhaust & Stock S65 is good for 625-640 BHP, about the same BHP the max power Vortech kits achieve (depending on available fuels). But Active (and I believe Evolve will upon request) feel comfortable running the Rotrex at 8-9 psi on a stock motor for a 675-700 BHP.

    Bottom line is that it's pretty clear that the Rotrex C38 is a significantly better supercharger for the S65, from both a drivability and performance standpoint. The Rotrex essentially highlights and accentuates the NA S65s power curve and drivability, just with an additional ~200+ WHP.

    The only other kit I would now consider is an AA kit, the Rotrex is what I am after. After all of the research I have done, its clear Rotrex is the right blower for the motor. The sticker shock issue is about staging for me, I know I will want an intercooler setup but I was hoping I could ease into it.

    I hear ya, $ is $, but currently neither of the offer non ICd version s, and its for good reason, the s65 hates heat.
    I think evolve nstated they are considering it, but as long as you understand its not going to be as consistent back to back as the intercooled kits

    Just save up your money and buy my SC kit. You'll spend less, get better parts, and it can grow with you to whatever horsepower level you desire. It's a win/win.

    G power was selling (I think 30 kits) at a substantially reduced cost for their anniversay. Think like @ $7k for the entry level intercooled setup. Not a bad deal for a great kit

    My bad I thought you were referring to being unaware the M3 had a dual clutch.
