I owned a 2004 supercharged 4.6L SVT Cobra Mustang, bought it new and did some drag racing with back then. It was modded with an aftermarket supercharger pulley that was good for an additional 6 lbs of boost and can tell you that 6 lbs made a massive difference in power, totally different car. If I remember correctly it was over 100 HP and even more TQ compared to stock.
I'm really wondering if 6 lbs of additional turbocharger boost on these 4.4L TT BMW engines would respond as well. Hope so.

Most recent launch. I am not sure why it shows over a negative 1 degree slope. I have 25 launches from my X3M from the exact same spot with less than 1.

I really think you are going to need the EWG hooked up to get any really solid gains.

How do the new DP sound?

Yeah I'm not sure if I can run map 3 with being stock

I think the power bump is more than enough for my daily commute, going the EWG route is too complicated with adding more stuff on.

Downpipes I'm getting done end of week hopefully, the shop has been packed and not able
To get me in yet.

Is this without LC, like your first time?

What octane are you running?

Correct this is without launch control. traction off, in sports plus and power brake

Gas is Exxon 93 octane

Maybe I just stink at launching

No, I think without LC you aren't doing too bad. It's impressive.

I am curious what LC with JB4 looks like. I am considering the Racechip as I don't want plug into OBD.

My best LC on my X3M was 3.64 (stock). I'm okay with the launch on X5 M50i, just want more power after 60.

Wow, 3.64 in factory form for an X3M is very impressive.
The best published 0-60 I've seen for a '20/'21 is 3.8 seconds. Tenth of second improvements take significant power increases and don't come easy at that point.
Simply amazing that 5,000 lb SUVs can perform at these levels. These are exciting times for guys like us indeed.

did you charge the dragy?
I usually plug it into the usb slot when I use it

Did you connect it to your phones bluetooth?

I use the magnetic mount provided and mount it right on the housing of the HUD where the plastic piece is.

Does it need to be connected to my car somehow? I just assumed it ran off gps or something. I'm actually sitting in my backyard right now, and I just assumed it wouldn't connect to the server. Can/should I try to connect to the same OBD that I use with Bimmercode?

There were no instructions at all when I downloaded the app, so I'm not even sure how it works entirely.

You don't need it connected to the car, just your phone
I connect it to the USB just to charge it
make sure your bluetooth is connected to the dragy
If you are still having issues, message me your telegram or message me on FB (Timur Iafiasov) ill try to walk you through it

Wait a sec...... is there some other "device" I need to buy?

I assumed it was all contained in the android app.

Edit: and..... yep. It's a device. I just saw them online. The phone app just connects to the dragy device. The phone itself doesn't do anything.

Ok..... maybe I'll pick one up.

I assumed "dragy" was just a phone app.

Yes you'll need to buy the dragy device itself

Yeah, it has been consistent until humidity increased.

So I went out tonight and ran one without LC and one run with. The LC had some hop.
Tire pressure on rears were 38 and relatively cold tires. Engine was warm, just not tires.
1/4 tank of 91.
