Also, those of you interested more about RENNtech just do a search for RENNtech 335iS in youtube or even Google it.

The tune I am running from RENNtech is a test, and I think this test stage is nearing its end, as I ran the car 35 times on the PBIR drag strip in 91*-95* ambient temps.

No limp modes, no fault codes and was the fastest street driven BMW at the event

Prelude to the private track event on May 6 2012



Heads up with a first timer running JB4 Map 7, DCI, DPs, + E85



At this event, I know it was going to be hot so I swapped out the stock intake for the aFe Stage 2 Sealed Intake with custom sealing and held consistent ET of 12.2 and speed traps 113-115

With the stock air box in low 70 temps I am consistent ET 12.0 almost breaking 11s, and of course with no aftermaker DPs

Edit: Here is what my Dashdyno was reporting:

AFM @ WOT 138-142 avrg / Peak 160
Ambient Temps 91-92 degrees
Intake Temps 108 - 123 (normal driving and idle) / @ WOT 132-138 degrees

Here are two other time slips

Yes, I believe so. I might get a '12 X5d to replace the 335i since BMW purchase APR promo its very appealing for the rainy & mild towing days in Florida.

I am pretty certain what you got sprong from their finalization on the 335iS or was influenced therefrom. However I will still drop him a line and see if they came up with any new developments. They are 15 minute drive from me.

Everyone is anxiously waiting for me to break 11s. However the only way of doing that now in this inferno of a heat in Florida is to teach someone how to launch the DCT that is 100 lbs lighter than me. I weigh 255 lbs, even someone 50 lbs would do the job, but of course there will be those people that will cry it doesnt count cause I had someone else drive.

Got highflow cats DPs installed less than a month ago, and just waiting for fall to arive for the temps to drop back down to in the low 70

Here are some pics RENNtech took of the car for their publication

I leave for Ft. Lauderdale on Wednesday. Wonder if I could take out my ECU when I get to the parking garage at the airport and take it with me

Based on the dyno graphs, looks like Evolve is better bang for the buck, especially at lower rpm's

Finn good one BUT the Euro 335d is running 286 hp OEM vice US version at 268 OEM, there is a big differance. ALSO, the Euro DPF is way different than US version DPF , so thats one of the few reasons Evolve WILL BE running better than the RENNtech. But they are great numbers. RIGHT now I dynoed my car a few weeks ago and i clocked 318 whp with 425 lbs/tq on the wheels. Now that is with the RENNtech flash and WAGNER IC at 90 degrees Fahrenheit weather here in Puerto Rico!! BUUyyaaa

Road Race Tech in Dulles, VA is a Renntech dealer. It'd be a drive but it's doable.

You don't actually have to go to the Renntech or Evolve dealer, you can take the ECU out and send it to them. You'll get it back in a few days.

Curious to know how these cars are holding up CBU wise with all the emissions in tact and tuned. Any long term mileage reports? Anybody running gauges? How do the EGT's look? Just curious cause I'm in Phoenix and it gets hotter than a motha here!
