I was expecting numbers closer to what you are thinking, but it ain’t happing, lol.

I tried the 0-60 timing with my phone and the numbers were around 5.2, which is close to stock. I did the same test in a new stock 750 li w/xdrive and it was around 5.5. I didn’t find this method to be very accurate so I gave up on it.

I have also notice that watching my heads up display while going down the track, my speed was always off. There is definitely a lag in the HUD when accelerating and braking.

Is it worth $3500 for this? That is something that each of us will have to make the call on. Although the track numbers do not show extraordinary results, the car does feel different and sounds meaner when you floor it. Now I’m starting to sound like Dinan, “does your car feel faster”? lol.

dunderhi, My car has about 2k miles on it, so I have assumed it is not a problem with the air filters. And I do run 93 Octane.

I asked Dan (Dinan) if they ever comment on threads like this to give their “professional” opinion and he said he used to, but a lot of the times the threads would go south and turn into a pissing match.
