    Looks great! So far we've only tuned the one on our 2011. We wrote a custom Cobb back end flash map for it as well as the JB4 changes required to control higher boost levels (Cobb alone is pretty limited on boost) but it's been nothing but headaches getting the Cobb flash maps loaded on customer cars. We sent out two of them and both have some sort of DME incompatibility with the Cobb setup they need to resolve first. Click here to enlarge

    You need updated firmware to run the 3.5 bar so if you need help with that email me. And you can load up the Cobb Stage0 map (stock) to see if it loads and obtain your software version. Once I have the software version I can write the custom tuned map for you.

    Awesome update. How long did the install take / book time? Was it straight forward or were there lessons learned? Congrats on the upgrade...I'm looking forward to videos!

    I have not gotten any from you that I can recall. We do have 8 employees so perhaps you are emailing someone else? Or maybe I am not associating your email name with your bimmerboost account name. In any event load Cobb Stage0 and email me the software name once loaded.

    There is no Stage0 Tune for N55s since they introduced the new DME logic

    Oh. Then just load Stage1. The idea is to load any map so the Cobb will do its initial long write and tell you the software version.

    Just got an email from our N55 customer in China. Pretty much speaks for itself. Everyone loves the turbo..Click here to enlarge Keep us posted James

    "Hi Tony,

    We have done our custom tune today, one word - AWESOME.

    The car pulls all the way to red, good response, turbo lag is slightly more significant but i can understand. My customer is very happy.

    Great job Tony!

    Fred"
