I have a flat spot when accelerating hard in my '93 525i SE Touring (e34) M50 eng.

It only happens at fairly high revs, but a long way from the rev limiter

Any ideas

it also costs money that I don't really have

that aside, it's my wife's car and she doesn't want it modified, I keep trying though

a chip is like a 30 minute job and it gets you 15-20 hp and same amount of torque... talk her into it somehow

the flat spot is a little annoying, but it ain't bad enough to get rid

Send a message via AIM to CiscoKid
just tell her you are going to wash it and then install a chip at the car wash... it takes less than 10 minutes, and you WILL notice a differance
