I am so glad you said that before me. It's the combo of your entire setup and its efficiency and how well it works with the tune regardless of boost that creates good power. Bad inefficient setup,18 psi,knock ,high IATs,high EGTs,pulls timing,loss of power! Turbo and Horepower 101

Definitely!! I recommend to anyone who is interested in tuning to read "How to Tune and Modify Automotive Engine Management Systems - All New Edition" by Jeff Hartman. It really goes into how engine management systems work.

If you are looking for best out of the box map, go with Active Autowerke.

If you are looking to get custom maps and fine tune it, BM3 or MHD

That's an excellent book I have heard and has been out for years.The info in it is priceless and has been used by some of best tuners out there! Supra,DSM,Audi,Subaru and Evo guys swear by this book

And you have to know what the heck you are doing as well or you're asking for engine trouble in your future.

Exactly!

I almost never recommend pushing these cars to the absolute limit. At the end of the day, they are still daily drivers and we want them as reliable as possible

2- AA tune + Meth = $$$ Need both; around $2500+ Only good for me is they are local.

Their website says $800 for tune, so for PS2 could be even more.
Their meth kit is also listed for $1499.
+ installation. So, a lot of money.

It's always a good idea to call AA and talk to them directly. Andrew is a cool knowledgeable dude and can provide you with updated figures.

As you know I went with AA and so far so good! I'm very happy with my performance and sound!

Call them man' As far as I know its 659.00 for the tune only 800.00 if you have it sent to you and you need the cable and they are definitely looking for folks with f30's N55 motors so the dyno may be free. Let them know you are willing to let them use your car.

Map for upgrade turbo is not extra ... Price for the tune is $695
If you are using meth, get Jb4 + BMS methanol injection
