My E46 Tune

To start off I only have a 323i so I wasn't looking for huge gains here. Just wanted a little extra pep if you will.

Tune was done by Mark Dasilva. I have seen a lot of good reviews on his work so gave it a try. Dropped by his place over the weekend and he answered all my questions before we got started.

This guy deserves his reputation. I feel a noticeable gain in gears 1 to 4. Car is definitely more responsive and has consistent power delivery through the rpm range. I already have a conforti intake installed as my only other performance modification.

To add, he was real easy going and knowledgeable. He even offered to restore back to stock if I wasn't happy with the gains, what more could I ask for .

I'd rather you contact him for pricing details but I find his prices reasonable when considering a Dinan tune. Hos prices vary depending on the car but range between 375 and 425. I also thought about the shark injector... This seemed to be the most reliable bang for my buck.

As for dyno, no I did not run my car on it.. It would obviously be difficult for me to report numbers as a result. Again I'm not interested in modding my car to beat a 330i or anything. Just wanted a bit of extra power that I could feel. When I got my intake I noticed a very slight improvement. With the tune it was definitely noticeable.

A correction to my first post, I spelled his name wrong. It's Mark D'Sylva also known as MarkD
