Iím happy the guy with the 50i can do the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs, but what about the 40i?

Just tagged you on one of my customer who purchased RaceChip GTS Black from me.

Here is the link again, just in case.

I have videos and pics of dyno test, in car videos of 0-60mph runs with Dragy analyzer and some burnout doughnuts if anyone is interested.

Doesn't work that way. You need before and after Dyno's to compare deltas. Although I'm sure BMW rated this engine at 450whp which is still an impressive 100whp+ gain.

Call BMW and talk to the nice technician and ask him what HP at the wheels was, he will tell you. Thatís how I can up with the math. Are you not familiar with this. 456HP x 85%= 387HP. Dyno reads 545HP which is 158HP over stock (WHP) or 158 + 15% = 131HP (a the crank) . So if I or a dealership sold it it whoual be a 2019 BMW ďĒ ďĒ tunes with 609HP!

I think I might get meth injection after my downpipes. In a couple weeks.

Nice #'s bro but don't be naive about BMW's hp and torque factory claims. They are and always have been highly underrated from the factory. Some stock F15 50i's see over 400 at the wheels. No doubt the tune gave you a big increase but it's hard to tell just how much without a baseline. Too bad you didn't get a stock dyno run before the tune. You may have miscalculated your numbers... 545 hp at the wheels would equate to 641 hp at the crank with 15% drivetrain loss. But even the exact vehicle with same motor will have variations in power from the factory. That being said, not all will experience the same amount of drivetrain loss either. It's not an exact science.

Nothing voids your warranty unless it's proven to have caused the issue. If you blow a gasket or your crankshaft goes bye-bye then yeah your JB4 will be most likely blamed for it.

My dealer knows all my mods and have never had an issue. If you are concerned, just remove it before you head to the dealer for service.

I'm flashing protuning bm3 on my X5 this weekend. I've used it for 2 years on my m3 with multiple maps and boost by gear settings as well as overrun and burble options. This tune is very smooth, predictable and retains all the failsafe features. Nothing compared to a proper flash tune!

What were the results on this?

Anyone else running the JB4 tune on the i40? I love how quick this little SAV is but the power has me yearning for more.

Check your local tuner. I had mine put in a Stage 2 tune from Mission (even though their website doesn't show the X5 as an option) and this thing is a beast! Everything else is stock. I asked about doing a down pipe but they said it wasn't needed.

I was going to go the JB4 route but after doing a ton of reading and research it looks like a flash tune is the only way to go for the best gains. Plus, I didn't have to poke a hole in my firewall from the engine bay to plug the darn thing in.

Edit: Found the link to the tune on Mission's website for the X5 i40 (it was kind of hidden):
