    So I had a guy on Facebook tune my 325i e46 remotely by linking to my laptop through teamviewer he did an ews delete and euro2 tune as I have catless headers with a cat put on downstream and I needed my post cat o2s deleted everything was running good but I was still getting a code for the pre...

    Currently I want more power from my car since it is awd and has so much potential for putting down more power. I did a little bit of research and found out that getting more power while naturally aspirated is just too expensive per hour gained compared to forced induction. My main question is...

    So, finally finished my manual swap and my long tube headers install and so I have driven it for a bit now 🥳. But I live in NH so for inspection we require a plug in for emissions to pass. So I was wondering with the inpa,NCSEXPERT if I could modify the allowable values for it to not come up as...

    So I have been working on the car for a long time and I’m so close, just one issue. I’m getting a p1603 torque code. GEP (Georgia, Russia) tuned the car and now he’s hard to get a hold of so I’m looking elsewhere for someone to help me out. If your familiar with romraider or tunerpro and could...

    I have a E46 320d (M47TUD) which I am going to tune, the company offering the tune requires me to download the cars ECU myself, which I don't really know how to do. I have a K+Dcan cable and inpa + ncs expert, but I'm guessing I will need some other tool to download it? Could anyone point me...

So I've tried to get into the EWS and im getting error messages (all in german) the car acts like when its not...

    Hello, I'm sure many of us have tried RomRaider to flash the MS4x ECU. There's something I'm not sure if I understood correctly: The ignition angle table. Why are there some values +ve and some -ve ? What do they imply ? I tried doing my research before asking.. If anyone can help! Thank...

    I just want to state, I am getting nothing from this, I just wanted to help any E46 guys if they are looking for a tune. Where do I start, So far, I think it is great! I mean you can't expect a lot from tuning an N/A car, but I can definitely feel a difference (I went with Stage 2...

    So i'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how tuning the vanos tables in your ecu creates more power. I have already been messing with the MS43 for a little bit and now i want to try to make a little more power thru tuning the tables. Im not expecting anything crazy i just am trying to learn...

    so I have a 03 325i that has headers and intake, Nothing crazy. I do have a ECU tune that I bought from rev match motorsport ($350) but it’s only stage one bare minimum. This summer I’m swapping my motor for the s54b30 and would like to be able to tune that ECU but don’t want to buy another tune...

    Hey guys, I searched around for a bit looking for a thread about an ICV Delete thread using the MS43/42. Didn't find much, more specifically I didn't find much regarding the 2.5L m54b25 engine. So here are my findings. Firstly My car has an M50 manifold upgrade and i'm not sure how that has...

    Hi all! I am a SAM Tech EFI graduate, and proud owner of two e46 cars, one boosted and one naturally aspirated. I would like to offer you guys in the Houston area (and potentially Austin) the opportunity to get some dyno time and make some power. I can tune many different platforms, but I am...

    Hello all! I am just getting started into learning about ECU tuning. I watched a really good series on Youtube (video at bottom of post) that talked about the general process of tuning. Someday in the far far future I would love to turbo my car (325i) so I am trying to apply what I learned in...

    Hi, I've been trying to tune my MS42 for the past two days and haven't really gotten anywhere. I have used Galetto, JMgarage and BMWflash to try and read the FULL and Partial .bins. The FULL .bin looks like it has downloaded but the .XDF not working after being download through all the same...
