ecu tune help!

i just got done with a 5 speed swap into my e36 323is, i want to delete the secondary air and shut off the check trans and traction control lights. problem being i can not find a shop that can do it for me. secondary air isnt as important as the other lights, i'd greatly appreciate the help! btw i'm about a half hour north of ann arbor michigan and need it to be somewhat close, i dont want to drive to texas or anything haha

Would you be willing to mail your ECU? Some places like Active Autowerks can do it for out of state people by mailing it in.

Check with your local BMW Car Club of America chapter. They might know someone who can do it.

Technically yes. All BMW engines come "detuned" from their full potential. At the very least you will be able to increase te revlimiter and the speed governor. It may be possible to tweak the horsepower and torque curve a bit.
