fwiw, I have an EAT chip and I think it's great.. definitely feels strong esp as the speeds rise.

someone feel like pulling out the b.s. flag on a E39 540 dyno'ing 270whp?

In stock form manual 335i's are putting down 275hp - autos are in the high 260's.
I don't see the 540 being able to pull a 335.

Yes we stopped and talked.

Me: Nice car
Him: Thanks, what is that thing?
Me: 97 540I/6
Him: Well that explains the outcome, I still should have pulled on you.
Me: How many Km?
Him: Just over 6,000km.
Me: Were you trying?
Him: Yes I was giving it all it had and you still were coming.
Him: I seen your headlights come up and I was on full throttle, I short shifted 1st gear but kept my foot in it till redline all other gears.
Him: How many people do you have in the car?
Me: 4
Him: WOW!
Him: You must have some work done to the car.
Me: Just a chip.
Him: I'm waiting till the winter then I'm going to chip mine.
Him: You want to try then.
Me: Lol not with the 540 however my 95 M3 would love to give you a run.
Him: I raced a few e36 M3 and no comparison, they had me first gear and that's about it.
Me: My M3 is supercharged.
Him: That would be a good race.
Me: I raced a 335 with my M3 and walked him bad.

Nice guy same age me.

I also have 4 witnesses of the outcome and conversation.

Also, he even agrees with the rest of EVERYONE in this thread about his car is faster than yours.

His car is faster from a dead stop.
From a roll it's a different story.

Maybe he was pushing his car before and heat soaked his turbos.
Also mabe he was running 89 Octane fuel because he cant afford 91 octane, those monthly paments could be hurting him.

There are so many variables out there.

Well, I've been on Max long enough to know you don't seem like a bullshitter to me. I'm surprised your getting this much flak. V8s aren't exactly weak engines!

I guess because on paper the 335 is the better.
However in the real world, things are not as they appear.

You bet! So your putting down around 286hp stock, correct? Any other mods besides the MarkD chip?
