Mines going on the dyno this Thursday for a ecutek tune, was originally on Friday the 13th but rescheduled because I didn't want bad juju... Both ecutek and BM3 have positives and negatives. In my case I didn't want to do multiple logging sessions for a Cary tune because of the amount of time it would take plus dyno hours as I can't do road logging here in Australia.

It will be interesting comparing the results that cecaa850 gets by multiple logs and updates compared to what mine ends up. Obviously there are many variables, so might be difficult to compare.

Can't go wrong with street tuning when your tuner has the right experience over the years. This was the result of my road tuning:

I do think that street tuning could be in fact end up with a better result, as you're getting real world results and not just from a closed environment.

Out of interest, what did you have set the four changeable maps to be? I was thinking low and high boost maps, just not sure what to do with the other two..

Mode 1 is full torque as seen in dyno
Mode 2 is same for the moment
Mode 3 is reduced(flat) torque
Mode 4 is reduced(flat) torque with track compensations (pulls power quicker as things heat up)

I did a log with all the parameters added and deleted that was requested by the tuner on Saturday morning. Sunday I got a modified map back to install. That was faster than I thought it would be. I won't get a chance to load it unfortunately until next weekend.

Me too. Lol.

If I didn't work tomorrow I'd do it then. I don't want to log at night as 4th gear goes up over 120.

This is the result of my tune on ecutek tune. Had some issues with the car going into limp mode on the way home, but the guys worked on it and looks like it's all sorted now.

Basically just has the "stage 2" bolt ons.

Feels a bit different to the BM3 S2 map that I was running, the power delivery feels a bit smoother. The smoothness almost makes it feel a tad slower, but I think it's just me. The map switching is a really nice feature. I was also told the turbo is maxed out now and the only way to get more gains would be to upgrade the turbo and fuelling, which I don't have any plans to do. I really should have done a comparison run of the BM3 tune and ECUtek tune.

I did a few runs against a stock M2 comp and we were basically neck and neck each time and mine would eventually slowly pull ahead. They're definitely a better starting point if you plan on tuning.

I'm really enjoying the process. More power is felt with each revision. I like the fact that the tuner examines every log and optimizes everything for my particular mods and the fuel that I actually run. I have another flash waiting for me as soon as I get the time.
