WTB: E39 M5 tune - specifically to remove secondary air pump CEL



Hi,

As the title states i'm looking to buy a tuner or a tune for my M5. I mostly need it to clear the secondary air pump codes so i can pass emissions, however some performance increases would be a nice bonus as well.

Ideally i'd like a shark injector similar to what Turner sells but i'd also look at custom tunes.

Let me know what you got.

DudMD or something like that on M5Board is your best bet.

Curious, is the SEC air pump issue with the pump itself or carbon build up

Mostly carbon buildup due to a very bad air pipe design. The pump is asked to perform beyond spec.

That sucks, I know I have seen many M5 fail victim to this, the $1k+ tube cleaning at the dealer does very little and unfortunately the best solution is a proper removal and clean, big bucks

My 2000 M5 had the same problem. Before each emissions test, I would clear the codes using my code reader. I would then drive it around for a couple of days or less and my car always passed the emissions test. It was ok to have one or two 'not ready' indicators. Of course, this is only a short term solution because the CEL will come back again. What you're trying to do is more of a long term solution which is a great way to go.

There are tunes that will remove the check engine light but it will not alter the ready flags. I believe your allowed to have 1 not ready flag. That's what I had during my last emissions and I passed. There is a member on m5board (sailor24) that rigged up something to fix the carbon build up issue. Ill try and find the link.

Done this with my wife's van.... it can be more scientific than that... some of the cheapest code readers include a readiness test function so you can check how many are ready/not ready rather than randomly driving around and taking your chances.... good luck!
