    BimmerBoost to host an E9X Tuner Dyno Comparison

    Click here to enlarge

    After speaking with ESS over the past few days it was suggested that a friendly dyno comparison should take place with ESS coming out to California to participate on a third party dynojet.

    BimmerBoost will be organizing the event that tentatively is scheduled for mid-June. The date may change to be able to accommodate everyone.

    This will simply be a friendly dyno comparison of all the available options for the E9X M3 as well as the N54. The royal rumble of tuning so to speak Click here to enlarge So, who is going to participate?

    Confirmed:

    ESS
    G-Power
    Gintani
    BMS
    CP-E
    Vishnu
    Powerchip
    OE tuning
    MHP

    Potentially:


    VF E92 SC (contacted, responded, still tuning, not going to pressure them, our deadline is not their deadline)
    Active Autowerke (contacted, responded, waiting on details and dates)

    Waiting for response:

    GIAC

    I have made sure to extend the invitation to everyone. Note, this is not a competition but simply a comparison at the same time and same place by a third party for the benefit of all the consumers. I do not expect Active Autowerke to fly across the country for this and the invitation was simply extended as a courtesy to them and to let everyone know that all are welcome, no one is being excluded on purpose or due to politics.

    There have been many discussions about a dyno comparison but no one has made it happen. Well, here you guys have it laid out for you, who is going to participate, when, why, and the results will speak for themselves. This is not about winning or losing.

    We will source independent customer cars if necessary in order to represent all the options as best as possible. A dynojet will be used and boost logging will be done as well.

    Look for more details in this thread over the next few days and thank you to ESS, Technik + G-power, Gintani, BMS, and CP-E in their enthusiasm for letting their products speak for themselves.

    This should be nice ... This will really give the customers out there a nice base HP read out for all the tuning options out there.

    Will each "SC" company bring out a car with each stage?
    Will the tuners be able to run different maps?
    Will you be able to get detailed info about each car?

    You will have detailed info on each car, definitely.

    It is not realistic to expect tuners to bring a whole bunch of different cars but obviously the more the merrier. I don't see ESS or Gintani bringing each and every stage.

    Different maps? Absolutely, pump gas and race gas figures will be necessary. I will provide the fuel.

    Opps didn't mean every stage but yeah it would be nice to see more then just one stage from the SC companys.

    I know you closed the other ESS thread about the dyno because of this thread but do you think you could provide some info on the graphs they sent you.
    I just wanna know their side of the story ... More so because I'm running their kit.

    Well, I closed that thread as the best way to settle any dyno issues is simply to have a friendly comparison same place, same dyno, same time, done by a third party as they suggested. I definitely agree with that.

    Their side of the story is that the wrong dyno was posted by mistake and that the higher whp graphs are from a test car. We will see the numbers soon enough Click here to enlarge I'd invite you to show your car if you weren't on an island!

    I couldn't agree more ... No driver mistakes, No tire conditions, No excuses, Just strap down and push down.

    I seem to be missing out on a lot of BMW events being here on the island Click here to enlarge

    Thank you, but, actually, it was the idea of ESS and I am just organizing it and providing the results as a third party. This is the proper way to do it and resolve any issues without any mudslinging or accusations.

    This is how it should have been from the beginning. Thank you Ejaz Click here to enlarge

    oh yeah...this will definately be good. this way it will shut up all the "if" and "but" about each vendors tuning capabilities. i believe this is the best way to get true comparision about each product since it is on the same dyno, same day!
