What exactly would we be testing? The app or the maps themselves?

$575 is a great price for all three maps. Itís exactly half the price of Missonís Stage 2 with M Boot and burble mode. Just wish the trans flash and iOS were ready to go.

Well, I'm in. Paypaled $$ and all. I'll let everyone know about the experience in detail, including video uploads and dynos after I get my beta link.

Would be better to have Dragy results before and after with DA. Dyno is good I guess but doesnít provide substantial proof on what the gains are...

Glad youíre testing!

Ok, I just bought a dragy. What is DA?

I also have Maple Grove raceway in my back yard and can probably get some before and after 1/4mi slips. As of right now I am bone stock.

Will the beta lock the flash counter??
Could we potentially flash custom maps using this tool in the future?

DA = density altitude. This is why cars lose power at higher elevations or even lower elevations as the temperature rises and the atmospheric pressure drops.

Thanks for your support.

Our software is designed to keep CVN (Checksum Verification Number) and flash counter untouched. This means our software will be virtually invisible to dealer level diagnostic tools.

Yes, custom tuning option will be available in the future releases. BETA user's will have the access to flash custom maps prepared by us!

So, I have a 6MT. Does that mean I don't need to worry about a trans flash even if I go to stage 2?

Correct, we do not have the 8HP50 mentioned, it is the 8sp auto. When I asked the question I was told there is no torque limiting to deal with on 6sp manual. --MW

Correct, stage 2 with MT transmission does not require any additional flash. BMW Fxx equipped with 8HP50 has 550 NM limiter for all gears. Stage 2 torque exceeds 600 NM so you will get big tq intervention without transmission flash.

To workarround the throttling of the automatic transmission you could create map 2.5 where boost is reduced between 2800-3500rpm to cut to 550NM? I think the acceleration would feel better this way if you do so, and max power would stay at 440hp...

Are the transmission tunes as easily reversed and invisible as the ECU reflash for dealer services?
