• E46 M3 with Full Supersprint Exhaust including Headers and Evolve ECU Tune - Dyno resutls

      The BMW E46 M3 ECU Remap is one of our most popular products. It works very well on its own on a stock car but when combined with the right hardware we can really improve on the already brilliant S54 engine. In the case the right hardware being Supersprint V2 Stepped Headers/Manifolds, Supersprint Decat, Supersprint Centre Exhaust and Supersprint Lightweight Racing Rear Exhaust. This particular car had 90k miles on it although you would never be able to tell from its condition. Owned by the current owner for the last 4 years the car was in immaculate condition as can be seen by the pictures. After fitting the Supersprint parts it was only natural for the customer to select Evolve to maximise this set up.

      The ECU file was read out of the car and a diagnostic test was carried out to make sure there were no error codes stored on the ECU. Of course as the car had been decatted this was the only error showing. This would be taken care of as part of the ECU tune. After strapping the car down to the dyno we proceeded to do a baseline run as the Supersprint parts had been fitted before hand. The car baselined at 345.6 BHP. The average figure for a stock E46 M3 on our dyno is 325 BHP so that was a good start.
      After tuning the car made a consistent 360 + BHP figure with the best figure of 365.4 BHP. So that meant a peak BHP gain just shy of 20 BHP with just the Evolve ECU Tune. Torque gains were between 10-20 lb.ft through the rev range. We were happy with the results and more importantly the customer was very happy with the improvement of on road performance.

        Evolve has to be the premier tuner for the e46 and e9x M platforms. Just phenomenal results.

        Awesome results as always @evolve and @Imran@Evolve

        We'll be dynoing a stock E46 M3, then installing/dynoing SS V1 Stepped Headers, then installing/dynoing your tune all back-to-back over a span of a day or so. I'm sure we'll get great results!
