Hey guys I just wanted to let you know about a new development for the E60 M5.

After R&D with a few select E60 M5's and receiving similar positive feedback from other boards, Active Autowerke is ready to release our Performance Enhancing Software for the E60 M5. The software has been re-engineered to enhance driveability throughout the entire RPM band while in both part throttle and full throttle (WOT). We have also noticed increased torque gains through the RPM band while at part throttle. Active Autowerke's E60 M5 Performance software makes a substantial difference in throttle response in both driving modes when compared to stock. The enhanced driveability allows for much more crisp and smooth shifts throughout each gear. The remapped fuel, ignition, throttle, and vanos setting has enabled Active Autowerke to get performance gains while enhancing the driveability. Finally, the speed limiter has also been raised and there is an optional rev limiter adjustment available upon request at no extra charge.

Testing an exhaust system including X Pipe and rear muffler has reflected no HP gains. Substantial HP gains have been made by removing the Charcoal Filters ( Roughly 25-28 rwhp on a mustang dyno ) when programmed with the Active Autowerke E60 M5 software.

Dyno charts will be available shortly.

I can provide you with some more info if anyone wants it.
