The N55 crew definitely appreciate the fact that while you're continuing to test the turbo to see if it's capable of 500+ HP, you're also testing flash tunes on a stock N55 turbo so we can see true data behind our purchases. If the flash will produce another 30 HP, which it appears is very possible, then I will happily drop $800 on a Cobb AP to gain another 30hp vs. $4,000 to gain relatively the same.
This is why Terry is conducting both tests and why he has such a professional base of BMW followers. To a guy who doesn't have 10s of thousands to just throw around for people to R&D products on my dime, we appreciate the due diligence to get the most gains for the best buck. "
