Edit: GVFlyer, I sent you his cell through pm and let him know that you have tried to email him a couple days ago. He should be going through his emails in a bit, or better, you could call him.

I just got this tune last weekend. It was pretty fun...we got to talk cars, I got to ask a lot of questions. I got the stage 2 tune since I have test pipes and the servotronic tune thrown in (I was able to make the cut in time and I drive a manual so no need for DCT). The car feels very different and it pulls pretty damn hard from even down low. With my setup and tune, its so easy to get to redline so quick that I can't do it on the streets too often anymore. The steering feel is also excellent. I have a canyon meet this Saturday, a track day in the middle of Sep and again at the end of Sep and I'm excited to test it out on my new setup.

He is local to me so I just drove up to his house and all the work was done in his garage. I inquired others on other available tunes out there and wanted some additional info before committing. Speaking to him, I felt comfortable enough to get his tune. Other responses were "we have XXX tune, come on in!" and I felt that was lame especially since I wrote damn near an essay when inquiring. Test pipe exhaust systems with tune are known to bring out 20-30 hp and my butt dyno can actually feel something (its hard to feel just 10hp).

How's that for mods that belong on an s2k?



I need to wipe off that sticky crap on the right side I know!

I got the stage 1 with Dinan pulley and Dinan CAI and honestly with all that done the car pulls harder and is better up top.

You won't get some wow factor like the jb4/Cobb on a 335i where u up the boost by 10+psi but you will get amazing refinement a much more linear power band and of course the cold start clean up!

All and all I'd say the mods are a noticeable improvement and worth it especially if u can DIY.

Big grin and love bpm and have always Been satisfied with Dinan.


Only way you wouldn't be happy is if you're looking for raw hp... If you want that gintani stage 2 or 3 or ess 625/650
