Hi, I'm not really new to the forum, just new to posting.

I went from a 545i to a 335i and now a 550i M Sport, and would like to gain as much knowledge about improving the performance of my car.

Thanks to everyone who have provided great assistance in the past.

Welcome to the Werkz.

What sort of enhancements are you looking for, and what is your budget? It sounds like it should already go like a cut cat


Riding in style

Need 550i Performance Enhancements

Thanks.

Coming from a fully loaded 545i (non-sport pkg), which ran the 1/4 mile in 13.7 secs, to a 335i (sport pkg), with a JB4 G5 tune, ran the 1/4 mile in 12.8, I would like the 550i to run the 1/4 mile in the high 12s. I would prefer not to go to a supercharger to accomplish this.

Has anyone flashed the ECU and/or changed the camshafts to get more power out of this V8? I would like to get an additional 80 HP out of this motor, without spending $10k for an ESS supercharger.
