The software removes the top speed governor, enabling the cars to attain their ''natural'' top speed; and the V8 will pull right to red-line in top gear! Changes to the throttle mapping help soften throttle tip-in for a sportier feel and improved modulation capabilities.
Note: The Dinan High Capacity Oil Cooler and High Performance Intercooler is required for Stage 3.
98 More Horsepower / 129 More lb-ft of Torque
Stage 3 Performance Engine Software safely increases turbo-boost pressure and is optimized to take full advantage of the High Performance Intercooler. The boost is tapered at the higher levels to keep from over heating and damaging the turbos. With a peak horsepower of 398 at 5700 rpm and the peak torque of 429 lb-ft at 4300 rpm as tested with Dinan High Capacity Oil Cooler System and Dinan Free Flow Exhaust is a monumental increase over the stock 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque BMW quotes.
Being only 1 lb-ft and 14 hp short of a stock M3 in a package that costs less to buy, fill with gas and insure it is the perfect weekday commuter and weekend canyon carver.
There is more to a tune than just cranking up the boost. Power needs to come on smoothly and in a predictable way to make the car as fun to drive at wide open throttle as cruising around town. It is your BMW, but reborn with new found acceleration and speed.
Top Speed Governor Removed
Dinan’s software removes the top speed governor so your BMW will be capable of achieving its true natural top speed.
A True Software Tune
The biggest benefit of a true software tune like Dinan's Performance Software is that all of the communications between the engine sensors and the engine management computer (DME) remain unaltered. This translates to properly returned fuel mixtures, ignition timing and full map rescaling to keep everything in sync. Keeping an engine running at its best and with the most reliable power is what Dinan is all about.
Properly returned fuel mixtures to the DME along with a correct tune means keeping the engine running cooler with less wasted fuel. Ignition timing is a critical part of the equation to limit engine knock, one that many tuning companies ignore, Dinan Performance Software includes full map rescaling to protect the engine and keep everything running smoothly.
All BMW Engine Safeguards Retained
BMW worked hard to build systems to protect the engine in case of a failure, Dinan keeps all of these systems in place for the safest possible tune.
