We should post a poll - I don't know if it will ever come out.

I got word from JimC directly a number of months back that the software itself is already done (has been complete for probably near six months now).

the hold up is apparently in manufacturing the injector (canister and plug). according to his original estimate the shark should have been available in september. the estimate has obviously been revised. 325/330 now use the OBD-2 connector under the steering column to flash the ECU versus the BMW diagnostic connector under the hood (which our later cars no longer have).

peruse e46fanatics. JimC posted there (as JimConforti as I recall) and explained everything. I think he got flamed pretty good as well. :(


by the way, in email, JimC went on to say that he DID go into the VANOS and tweaked it as well (unlike Dinan). with this, there should be a little bump at the top end. plus he did all of the things that Dinan did (recalibrated EML, removed speed and RPM limiters).

FYI: since Dinan (and the other software vendors) need your car or the ECU to flash with THEIR tools, they don't face the same manufacturing challenges that JimC does with bringing a new shark injector to market.

I'm sorry. The whole point of OBD-II is to have a standard set of equipment that every manufactuer uses. He should have been able to get an OBD-II connector long before he finished tweeking the software. I'd like to know who he's using to have this connector made so I can tell everyone I meet to not use them as they're a bunch of incompetent morons.

As an alternative to waiting forever for his software to be released, what do you guys think about the Autothority chip? They claim an extra 14 hp from software alone. Seems too good to be true.

Get your HP boost today that will beat the Shark: disconnect your battery to reset the ECU.

I do this every time I work on the stereo and it doesn't do jack.

Nick swears it does, even despite his hard driving habits which would technically always have the car in full-battle mode. :dunno:

Oh...you mean bull****? Kinda like how I want to install the Tornado (http://www.myauto.tv/tornado/installation.php) in my intake system.
