I'd be happy with a hand-held tuner for the 4.4.

Holy thread revival Batman (lol). On a serious note, VF tossed the idea for a SC for our cars. ESS tuning is going to release a kit 1st Quarter of 2011.

"after spending 100k in r&d"

Cost of a new 6er = 90k

Is something not adding up here? Seems like after purchasing a test car all they had left over was enough money for gas.

ESS has been testing the unit for a while and it's currently on a 545. It looks like stock...really sweet. No HP #'s or price as of yet.

If this indeed works with not too many other modifications, then I would seriously keep my 6 for awhile.

I'm actually opting to move into an M6. Still in contemplation mode. But I'm sure I will pull the trigger within a year.

I would think that the transmission wouldn't be able to handle it. How much is the new transmission? Add that to the bill
