I used to own a mustang and I used tunerpro to make reflash the ecu for performance with an elmscan 5 usb to OBD2 connector. I now have a BMW and I was wondering if there is a tuner pro type software for ECU tuning for the BMW?

Most shops can't tune these cars and there are only a hand full of aftermarket vendors that provide this capability. Welcome to BMW. :)

the makers of shark injector have been working on a software that will allow you to tune your own car...thats been going on for a few years...nobody knows when its coming out...or if it even is :dunno:

the bmw tunning industry is just one big monopoly sausage fest.....unlike the mustang

Same as everything else, software in a can. Can't even install/unistall it yourself as with the Shark. Must be done by a Dinan dealer.

there are lots of hot e46s on the road.......... i am really shocked at the lack of aftermarket chip selections/support.... i am not saying i was looking for free software like tuner pro but to have no software at all.....

No, nothing user tuneable at the moment.

Honestly, even the pros aren't getting more than a few hp out of these motors even with an intake and exhaust so it really isn't that big of a loss for the NA folks. It is, however, a bit more of a loss for those wishing to piece together their own FI system.

I wish the BMW community had something like open source. That would pretty much blow the top off of BMW F/I.

You could try a Moristech Pro Sequential Interceptor. I believe this is what pei330ci uses on his engine.
