And I don't need to put it on a dyno to tune it as I'd use maps similar to the 325i, and make mods to those, plus you can get almost to the peak attainable torque withhout dyno tuning, that only gets you the little bit extra which is only required for the racetrack. I mentioned the dyno only to show the before and after results, I did not mention "dyno tuned".

You are asking about an extra 30 hp and hope to get it for $230, it just isn't feasible.
I understand, business is business. As I said, if i was going to do it I would want dyno sheets to show for, but thats my problem. Maybe in the future (after the shock of spending so much money already on the car goes away) I will get it done.
