IMO you should go with tuners that have the most experience with the software used to tune the car. If you're looking into Bootmod3 then I would look to see who the primary tuners are.

Ken (Wedge) and Justin (Twisted tuning) have been the primary tuners for MHD and I chose Ken since he is local to me. I have heard others say this and have seen it myself. Ken likes to take a little more of an aggressive approach. In the end you get what you pay for though. If I request a tune that has less power but consistently little to no timing pulls that is what I will get.

I would say that most customers like to run more boost and want as much power as they can get out of their setup. Saying I run 20 psi on pump gas sounds good. I have seen Denzo tune people with a ton of boost an negative timing targets. I am happy with my pump tune from Ken.
I see, thanks for the insight.
Personally I prefer a balance between boost and ign timing w/o any timing pulls, which seems to be the smoothest way of tuning a car imo. Overall I wish my tuner was experienced with tuning boot mod 3, but obviously it's too new he'd need to learn.

I completely agree. I would rather run a little less boost to bump timing up to 5 or 7 degrees. Currently I have loaded my 18 psi at 3.5 degrees.

JB4 with one of Burger's standard back end flashes.
Which also didn't work well so I sold the car.
This was back in 2014/15 though so hopefully N55 tuning is a bit more advanced.

Meh tuning hasn't made any major advancements, Cobb had some missing and mislabeled tables that MHD now has labeled/corrected. the s55 DCT flywheel seemed to be a major breakthrough for me. MHD has some cool new features like kick down disable/cold start delete to keep the neighbors happy/speed limiter removal... Burble boushie lol. all of which can be selected or not selected prior to flashing a map. I'm still running one of Terry's pump flashes that's had a few tweaks to timing/ high pressure rail target and some DCT specific changes that seemed to fix my slipping on high boost (thanks Wedge). I think Terry's tuning has been pretty good looking back,lots of new stuff has been learned as of late too IMO. To think I was targeting 18psi at redline all those years at these NFZ events bc of that stupid flywheel kills me hahahhah this years nfz should be interesting targeting 23-24pdi at redline now good time to own a DCT n55

Dang All I wanted was to build a track focused m2 which essentially revolved around a solid tune. Well hopefully I can get something to work out.

I would focus on suspension, brakes, wheels and tyres before tuning for more power.

I realized that from many years of time attack and that will definitely be taken care of.

Jrz pro suspension, either 6 pot blue calipers from the F10 M50 (matches rear) + RB rotors and pagid rs29 pads + ss lines and fluid, or if I'm serious enough to make this a fully dedicated race car essek AP racing calipers front and rear, the current wheels on the car are style 437m (decided not to sell them) because they're forged and quite light so no need to waste money on wheels that aren't lighter (most forged after market wheels aren't lighter than 437m), going to run pilot sport cup 2 or RE71r, maybe even PS4S if I want some streetability and in size 265/35/19 front and 285/35/19 rear.

That's why now I'm looking at tuning.

I regularly track my 2011 135i DCT. Pure stage 2, tuned by Wedge, running E30. Upgraded suspension, brakes, LSD, etc etc all done. My local track is Autobahn Country Club.

http://www.autobahncc.com/

Max boost target is 23-24 PSI. My oil temps never go above 230-240 even on a hot day with the stock oil cooler. The only issue I have had is one random misfire during a session this year. I'm guessing this is the flywheel issue, and I will be upgrading soon. Overall the car has been extremely reliable, and a blast to drive on track.

What's the ambient temp on your track days?

Also, any logs of the wedge map you run on track? Just curious to see how my car compares. Can pm if you want.

Last HPDE was 6/26. Temps were low to mid 70's.

Unfortunately I do not have any logs saved from that day. Link below I believe is the final revision of my current map. 3-4 and 4-5 pull. I'll save some logs and post up next time I'm on track.

Edit: I guess you can't link logs. I'll PM you. Anyone else can PM me for review as well.
