Well, just my opinion. I'm sure some people have had success with it, but honestly it makes no sense to me knowing how all of it works. They're excellent at marketing, though.

Either have Barrie make a custom tune, or go MS2V3 IMHO.

Not for nothing, but this E34 should already have a MAF not AFM. Since it is an M50B20.

havent been doin much lately but i got the car on the basket weaves with some free worn out tires, to check size and stance. check it out

20121126_124343.jpg

Im pretty sure i want to lower my car another 1-2 inches... so much wheel gap with smaller tires on smaller wheels lol, WHO WOULDA KNOWN!?!?

ive also been doing some research on tuning and ive found some simple things like how the dme chips are EPROM chips, mine is a 28 pin, 27c256, ive found that i can purchase a chip burner with software for about 85 bucks

20121203_180453.jpg

http://www.moates.net/burn2-flash-n-...rogrammer.html

not sure if you guys have heard much about the programmer but i am very interested in learning about basic tuning. so if anyone has any tips or links for some good info let me know. i will most likely still get barrie to tune my car since he has the experience but id still like to learn and set my self up or future tunes.
