Different Direction (Update)

Back on 26 Nov 10 I posted a thread title (Different Direction), now that I have made turn I would like to update you on my action. After removing the JB+ I jump into my 2008 BMW 535i and headed to Houston, TX. Where I was to meet with in my opion the best tuner in the country, Jerry Thornton. Jerry is with a company call[B][B] EuroCharged, located in the MotorWerks Of Houston bulding. I arrived at Jerry's shop at 9:00am on 30 Nov 10 and he went right to work on my bimmer. He strap the car down on the dyno and start doing what he dose best. To make a long story short at the end of the day, Jerry had made the 400 mile drive worth while. The last dyno run had my bimmer @ 303.6 HP at the rear wheel and 384 lbs.of Trq. See dyno test sheet. I will try to insert in htis message but if not, see the sheets in my photo album. (New to this) I. have done the Dinan and JB+ thing and they are good, not trying to knock them. I did the Dinan thing with my other BMW, felt it more in the wallet than in the seat. JB+ is priced right if you want the plug and play option. For my money it's EuroCharged. The price is right for the quality product that you get. The biggest thing that impressed me about Jerry, he is not selling bimmer products and he's driving a Benz or some other brand. He drives a full growm M5.

Mancho, I spoke with Jerry last night before getting your message and he told me that he was running a christmas special on the tune pkg. A full custom tune for only $499. He ownes a 135I also, this guy knows the N54 eng. Oh, I'm not a paid spokes person I have faith in the guy and his work. Give him a call, (312)-446-6326.
