Pre-vanos E39 540i/6 dyno graphs

I can confirm via butt dyno the prevanos is making way more power..
lol.

The M62 beats the M62TU in high end pull but lacks low end IMO, but i blame my non-sport diff.

Technical graphite trim installed

Now, time to two-tone that interior up!!

Swapping the mid bracket was fun wasn't it, lol.

The trim is what gets you in the door, then you end up like me.

I'm still amazed too. They could have at least given the forum members a discount / rebate for being unofficial beta testers.
