This raises a good question, as everyone thought the power box was useless and just a placebo effect. It woke up the n52 for sure, as as a stock car is horrible on. takeoff. So my question is I'm swapping a n54 in my n52 car,.since it's hooked up, can i just keep it ?

The N54 is a different animal, you'll use a JB4 for that.

Got my pedal tuner on Friday and did the install. I figured I would give it a try since so many people comment on pedal tuners making a big difference and I've always felt the car was rather sluggish for the power it has.

Install couldn't be easier and it set up just as the video showed. Testing on a partial throttle while switching maps in neutral shows the unit does change the pedal input as shown on the video so it is working. As for driving the car, I don't notice much difference, there is some but even on the most aggressive setting, it is not a big difference at all. That being said, my 550i is a manual transmission car so perhaps it would be much more pronounced with an auto trans in play.


I only drove it around long enough to get the temp up and play a little but late on a Friday night is not exactly when you want to be tearing around so I'll try to get a drive in later this week. At the price, if it helps the response a little as it seemed to, I am okay with it. Ultimately, I need to get some free time and get a meth system done so I can add the BCM and up the boost.

I've been running the pedal tuner for almost 2 weeks now. It is a welcomed addition and the car should've already performed this way. Car is responisive in a good way. Acceleration is faster with less pedal input. It really feels nice to have instant part throttle power and torque. I've run all modes and all feel good. I don't think I gained much from maxing out the red setting though. Normal red is quick but still feels natural. Taking off from a standstill feels amazing. I feel like I have all this tuned fbo power under more direct control to be released at any moments notice. The car just feels overall improved and more like a performance car. The only draw back is you will use alot more gas with the aggressive setting and driving style. Ive adjusted to the pedal now and run red mode daily. I know how to ease on the pedal to avoid taking off fast and wasting fuel. I may switch down to a lower mode when i dont feel like concentrating on pedal input especially in colder weather. Glad i got it! This device is a must have. No more running stock for me!

Are there any benefits with running the Pedal Tuner on a f30 335 where you can set Gas Pedal Mapping to 5 and switch to Sport mode to make it very responsive?

The factory adjustable pedal mapping largely mitigates the benefit on those. The pedal tuner is compatible, but may not be worth it for you.

It really helps when moving from a standstill but does not eliminate it completely. I just reinstalled it in my new car after my other F22 got totalled and the difference is great. I personally use it only on the least agressive setting (green) and it really helps in comfort with throttle and will use the orange setting on twisty roads. For the price point compared to other pedal tuner it's great and better (from my personal experience on a different car) than the sprintbooster.

I just wish I could find strips of the velcro that originally came with it since it was probably the most amazing velcro I ever saw.

OK, improved throttle response means the engine reacts faster to throttle inputs.

I'm sorry, but how does this not result in an improved 0-60 time. I know I'm simplifying things, but this would be the equivalent to a great holeshot versus an average or bad one, which will absolutely impact your 0-60 time.

Because you could just push the dash pedal down faster on your own if you wanted.

Will installing the pedal tuner on my 135 basically do the same thing that the power button does in my e92 M3. Eliminates all lag. Takes the pedal thats usually desensitized and makes it sensitive??? I love the way the me feels with the power button on.

Yes, exactly. You also have different settings on how sensitive you want it!
Really cool product, we sell tons of them with positive feedback.

Awesome. Sounds like a product I'll be buying. If it reacts anything like the power button on the e92 M3 there is a huge difference in pedal sensitivity. Will be purchasing shortly and leave feedback after install.

Just purchased the pedal tuner. Pedal feels great now. No “lag” if you will. Before it seemed as if there was dead space at the top of the pedal. Now it reacts with the slightest movement of the pedal. Definitely recommend

No problem at all with this product and I agree with all of the positive things that have been said here. What p!sses me off though is thinking back to how an army of @**holes with ZERO personal experience tore a strip off me a few years back when I added PedalBox to my JB4 and posted that the results were great. I was basically called a shill and a moron, so I just left it alone and have been quietly enjoying the improvement without bothering to share anymore. To be fair, I can't remember if it was this board, I actually think it was another BMW forum that many here frequent. In any event, when I turn the PB off now it literally feels like there's something wrong with the car...easily the next biggest seat-of-the pants improvement after JB4 (and YES, I know it doesn't add any HP...let's not even go there ).

Makes the car more comfortable to drive with IMO. I totally agree!!
