Well, i think the E-test does give you an afr at 2000RPM or something but you're looking for consistancy during the RPM range. Get a dyno done. Dont worry about the chip, your car has knock sensors, it will retard the timing if need be.

Isn't that if you use octane that's too low? How would that help too lean a mixture?

just running a motor too lean can, and will eventually damage it even without knocking. But just for a reference point for you.

My motor is a m52b28, pretty much stock. I'm running s52b32 software on it (litterally, took the chip out of a M3, put it in my car, no tuning).

Because of things like the Maf, CPS, O2 sensors, etc, your chip makes sure its running correctly. You can usually tell a poorly tuned car very quickly. Like mark has said, dont worry about it, put the chip in (assuming its for the correct motor (vanon vs-non vanos) and enjoy.

although there is always a risk when changing the engine management... the other thing is, do you know if your fuel injectors are good? hows the spray pattern? do they all flow the proper amount and within a specific % of each other? All these things become more dramatic when you modify something.
