thoughts after receiving my eurocharged ecu tune

so a few weeks ago (at timmayfest) i was the lucky raffel winner and had my e60 tuned by eurocharged. my initial ride home from timmayfest (be it only 10 mins and with the wife and kids in the car) left smiles on my face. the power increase per eurocharged is 25whp and 21wtq with dyno charts to back it up. i can say there is a significant increase in performance as it drives like a differant beast now. they do state there is a less noticible change from p400-p500 but i still press p500 and feel an increase which makes me happy. after driving for a couple of weeks have also noticed a small decrease in gas consumption (diff of 1-1.5mpg) not a whole lot but hey better than nothing. i have yet to try out the speed limit delete as i am waiting to install a new set of rear tires first. will be putting those on next week before my trip down to fla. maybe i can find a long enough straight to try it out. the only complaint i have at this point is that i am now getting used to the extra bit of hp and i'm starting to feel i need something else..thanks eurocharged for starting the mod bug. overall i am pleased with the tune.. i was thinking about getting the dinan tune (local dealer) before this as i did not want to take the ecu out and mail it but i am more than pleased with the eurocharged tunes. as a side note they also offered a hand tuner so that i can go back and forth from stock to tune at my convience. wont have to worry about the stealership deleting my tune.

Pulley and Tune Results - Eurocharged

I've been working with Jerry at Eurocharged for a while now regarding his pulley and tune for the M5 and we were finally able to meet up here in Dallas at Autoscope to get it all taken care of. The pulley went on quickly and I took it out for a quick drive to see if I could notice any gains so far. It seemed to rev quicker at the bottom than it usually does, and the "lag" at the bottom end was what was disappointing to me about the M5 to begin with. So good improvement there. The car then went back in to be tuned on the dyno. I will post a long term review when I can put it through different scenarios, but so far I am very pleased with how the car drives. It is quick on the throttle and pulls extremely hard in P500. I used to hate P400, and now I drive with it there 80% of the time. P500 is just for extreme fun. P400 feels like P500 used to, maybe slightly less. Huge improvement there.

For those interested in the dyno numbers, the pulley picked up 11whp and the tune another 29whp and 30 ft/lbs tq. Together I am now up 40hp at the wheels from the baseline. The overall result is 470whp and 389 ft/lbs tq on a mustang dyno. I am going to dyno it again on a different mustang dyno in Houston the week of February 7th to determine variance and confirm gains.

470whp @7000rpm and 389tq @ 5600 rpm.

Other mods are: removed secondary cats and resonator, removed charcoal filters, rpi scoops and rpi block off plates.

Eurocharged Stage II Tune (and programmer) Review

I was initially skeptical about the value of a tune. My E39 M5 buddies told me that the current prices for the E60 M5 tunes were ‘too high’ and would ‘fall soon’. I began to reach out to many of the tuners on the M5board to see if they would explain and answer some of my questions. Of those who I reached out to, Jerry from Eurocharged was not only the most prompt in reply but the most straightforward. I initially had intended to wait till after the winter to get the tune but after talking to Jerry, having him explain the true power of the Eurocharged Stage II tune and hearing his phenomenal price, I decided to pull the trigger.

There are people who understand the mechanics behind tuning and then there’s me. Embarrassed to say this, but when the handheld programmer first arrived en route from Italy I didn’t even know where the OBDII plug was in the M5. That meant another message to Jerry, who not only didn’t laugh at me for my lack of knowledge, but provided an immediate answer. He made himself available via the M5board, email, phone and even phoned me at the office when I asked him to get back to me. It was also important to me to know that Eurocharged not only was a tuner of performance vehicles, but that Jerry himself had an M5 and knew the quirky particulars, the pros and cons we’ve come to love about this machine. The rapport he built, the level of care and quality of both service and products put Eurocharged on the top of my list. After Jerry held my hand through every step of the easy instructions required for the flash tuning, I was ready to get my beast on the road. The weather however, had other plans.

Another blizzard leveled New York City and the M5 sat silent in the garage with her Stage II tune, waiting for an opportunity. She was like ‘Neo’ from the Matrix after having learned Kung Fu, but was waiting for someone to demonstrate her new moves on. A few days above freezing and enough ice had melted to warrant a test drive. We began to inch out of the driveway and something in the exhaust note told me that this would be different than what I had been accustomed to. As the road opened up I gave a slight kick on the accelerator and the response was incredible. The car seemingly knew my intentions before I myself had and the throttle response was practically neurological. The revs jumped up higher than expected and the beast let out a roar! No, it wasn’t a sound declaring that she was back, rather one exclaiming that she had finally been uncaged. The path led us to the nearest expressway and seeing that we had to engage rapid traffic from a standstill, I figured this would be a good test of acceleration. I put the pedal down enough to get her going but released slightly to catch any wheelspin and then throttled down home. The beast tore off with ease and I realized then that I had forgot to press the “M” button to pull up P500S and MDrive. Nonetheless, I figured that for P500 this acceleration was impressive… until I looked down and realized that the power light was off. I was terrified yet excited in the same moment when I discovered that all this ferocity was in the base P400 mode.

So it became then, that P400 felt more like P450, what would P500 feel like? A simple push of the “Power” button and my questions were answered. The beast became ever fiercer except that she had the feeling of P500S aggressiveness. The power difference was immediately more noticeable and the throttle response that much sharper. If P400 was P450, than P500 was P550 or at least it felt like that. I was eager to push the button on the steering wheel with the circle around the “M” but I feared what would come of it. After switching back from P400 to P500 and enjoying this new found power throughout the rev range, I decided it was finally time to push the button. In the next few seconds I had downshifted and begun to accelerate and rev through to 8400 rpm before performing an up shift that felt like it caused a thunderbolt to be released from the heavens. The release of that shift happened with typical M5 quickness but the resulting force from which I left that gear rivaled the power of the gods themselves. Within seconds of my next shift I realized my speed in delight and cautiously released the accelerator. A brand new Porsche Panamera Turbo came over to my passenger side as I proceeded on the highway and felt the need to give me a thumbs up and a smile. He proceeded along and didn’t attempt to push me into a tête-à-tête with him. It was a truce, a feeling of mutual respect and although the numbers may have been in his favor, had we been on a track I would’ve had all the confidence in the world that my new uncaged beast would’ve bested him.

The M5 was not the only thing flying during this test; the time had also come to pass fleetingly. I decided to take the beast home and return her to the shackles of the garage for now, waiting for an even better day to unleash her. I made sure to thank Jerry for all he had done and he had taken all the compliments as a true modest professional would. I was initially skeptical about tuning and performance mods but after this experience I think that both I and my beast have had our eyes opened. Jerry at Eurocharged made that all possible and whereas some would think it proper only to consult with me regarding the issues of the law, I think it fit only to consult Jerry and his expert team at Eurocharged for my beast’s needs.

E60 M5 Eurocharged Tune!

Hey guys, most recently i upgraded my beast with a Eurcharged tune. And i have to say its been amazing driving my beast with it. I got it done when Jeff came down to Toronto to do the group buy tunes. My beast is so much more responsive now and pulls way harder. You could really tell the difference right away. In P400 mode its like P460 which is nice becuase it doesn't feel slugish anymore. But P500s turns into like P530s where you could really feel the real increase in power. I am very happy with it and would recommend members with M5's that are looking for tunes to go with Jeff's Eurocharged tune. It's worth every single penny. Thanks Jeff!


Here's a recent dyno i got done:

Mods:
EuroCharged Tune+RPi Scoops,Block-Off Plates,BMC Filters+Charcoal filter delete+Eisenmann Section 3 Exhuast
Blue= 4th Gearpull
Red= 5th Gear pull
I could only get the HP numbers because the shop did not know how to hook up my beast the read the TQ numbers

Before all of these mods except the exhaust i was at 416WHP on the same dyno(dynojet). And now with the tune and rpi goodies im at 451WHP. What would this equal out to crank HP and what do you guys think overall about these numbers?


Thanks
Mike
