AFAIK, Conforti perf. engine SW hasn't been released for E46's yet... I think they're close though...
I think it's out for the 323/328 but not the new engines. Word is that the 325/330 Sharkinjector will be ready later this year. Right now we're waiting on the hardware and not the software.

It hasn't been released for 325s and 330s :p

and, they just need to figure out how to get it on the car, not the programming :thumbup:
Totally forgot about the 323/328's... My bad :tsk: You're right though. JP has it.

I dunno, I'll have to rationalize it some more. :p
do it!!!

especially with CAI, your slow-rev complaints will be mitigated

Conforti will make it more responsive than Dinan, and the revs will fall faster, but you will sacrefise fuel economy (HACK said 3 mpg, I think), whereas Dinan increases economy

You've actually seen a measureable increase in fuel efficiency?

Performance Data
Peak Horsepower Gain...........................8 @ 6000 rpm
Peak Torque Gain..................................11 lb/ft @ 2500 rpm
Rev-Limit increase..................................+270 rpm

Not too bad. But 400 USD...I don't really "need" this. Will the car need to be out of commision? If so, how long? It may make more sense to get a Shark Injector if that's the case.

It takes 30 minutes max to do it, a software download at a Dinan dealer....

Need? What does need have to do with it? If *need* was the standard, we would all be driving Kias. You have roughly a $30,000 car. How much will that $400 increase your enjoyment of it? Every day, mile after mile . . . in fact, if you figured out the cost per mile, I bet it will seem much less!

Yeah, someone threw that argument at me a couple weeks back also. Probably nate, being the ignorant bastard that he is. ;)

If I do it, you guys will be the first to know.

Where can I find this chip and someone to install it? Also does it matter that my car is leased or is it okay to do these kind of mods?
