The dyno shows otherwise no? All I see is power increasing as the revs increase.

I understand the N54 may never be a very high reving engine but there should be room to increase it past 7200rpm. Even increasing it to 8 or 8.5k, from looking at the dyno, would be a substantial increase in power.

To go on, why install VAC springs that can hit 10k rpm(claimed by vac) when there is zero valve float with the stock springs at this power level and rpm range? "

" From what I see gintani prices their stuff very competitively. For what you get vs the price its far more affordable than Dinan and some other companies who really over price their stuff. This is great new regardless though. "

@BuraQ, the ROM is really the easy part of figuring out how to flash the car. The ROM is just the data that you are manipulating. The hard part about flashing is figured out HOW to get the DME to accept the modified data... "

As stated, they do NOT need to be rebuilt. The wastegates needs to be ADJUSTED. This is something that is pretty straightforward and can be done before they are installed. Also, its OBO. "

" Attachment 39231
Costs a whopping 83,000 ($112,189)

BMW has quietly introduced the new M235i Track Edition in the Netherlands.
Described as an "exclusive" and "sporty" version of the M235i Coupe, the Track Edition features an M Performance body kit that includes a front splitter, revised side skirts and a rear diffuser. The model also has a black grille, a trunk-mounted spoiler, a stainless steel sports exhaust system and 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels.
Interior changes are limited but include aluminum pedals, a carbon fiber / Alcantara handbrake lever and an Alcantara-wrapped sport steering wheel with a race display.
Power is provided by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that produces 326 PS (240 kW) and 450 Nm (322 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
Production will be limited to 12 units and pricing starts at 83,000 ($112,189).
