Settings for both firmware versions are in the first post. Note that the only change is to how settings are made for s63 models. There are zero performance or tuning changes in the updated firmware.
Great news!

Does this boil down to "futureUse=1" having a more meaningful label or something else/more?

I'm assuming there's no need/desire to update the firmware in the original stage boxes?

The change just makes the M5/M6 boost setting & logging more accurate. No real need to update the software unless we ask you to as part of email tech support. We won't be posting the software.

Hello everyone,

I have a 2014 650i Gran Coupe and my very new to tuning/BMW. I have a few quick questions

- The 2014 BMW 550i tune will also work on my car correct?
- What cable do I need to clear codes (if any) before I take it to the dealer?
- Is there a separate cable so that I can up my boost to +3 psi

Thanks everyone!

You have the TU engine so the tune will work but you don't need cable for more boost, you turn a little dial inside the tune boxes.

- The 2014 BMW 550i tune will also work on my car correct? Correct. The 550i had a different engine in 2011-2013 but in 2014 it received the update TU engine. The 650 had the TU engine in 2013 and also 2014. BMS sells a tuning setup for each, but for the TU which you have, there are two separate control boxes that install in minutes. There is a small dial inside that you can turn up and down to change the settings. FYI, on the older engine you had to connect a USB cable and change the settings via BMS' software
- What cable do I need to clear codes (if any) before I take it to the dealer? BMS sells a one-click cable called the CAN Tool that they manufacture. You can clear codes without a laptop with that via the OBD port. They also are resellers of the Bavarian Technic tool, which is an advanced tool that connects from the OBD port to USB but must be used with a laptop and their software.
- Is there a separate cable so that I can up my boost to +3 psi - Not needed for the TU. See the first bullet point above.

Question Installing stage 1 in M5 - 03-17-2014, 10:36 AM

My M5's 1200-mile service is this week. Once that's out of the way, I'll be installing the stage 1. Having taken a quick look today, I've reaffirmed my conclusion that I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to engines and that this engine bears very little resemblance to my 550's N63 in which I successfully installed this very same stage 1 unit.

Would someone be so kind, in layman's terms, to describe what I need to remove in order to access the TMAP sensors in the M5? The install guide says the following:

"...which will require removal of the two air boxes. DO NOT attempt to install the Stage1 to the MAF connectors..."

... which is crystal clear to many of you I'm sure, however, it assumes I know what the "air boxes" are and I don't. :0) Nor am I clear on how I differentiate between the TMAP sensors and the MAF connectors.

Any guidance much appreciated!

Ping... I know this might seem obvious to many of you but, to me, this is one-step short of guesswork; guesswork with a $100+K toy doesn't sit so well with me. Primarily I want to know what I'm removing to get to the sensors depicted in the guide.

Answered offline--that's a bit more fiddly than the N63 install. I'll post the numbers tomorrow after she's been Dyno'd...

Heres the logs from our Stock 2012 M5 with BMS stg1 tune (2.25 boost setting)

seems to have a flatspot in mid range but also looks to be making higher boost than other logs?

Can a standard OBD2 reader reset the codes?

Default Latest Firmware - 04-08-2014, 05:56 AM

With the latest firmware not available for download but coming out in the next batch of tuning boxes.....I have the s63tu motor...so can I go into my current/original firmware and increase my Boost Over Stock (0-10) from 2.25 to 3.00 and still run on pump gas? Or do I need to buy a complete new unit?

You can as most have done that, even I , but I now found my N63 to run much better on just 2.00 psi . Unless you have the octane, boost sometimes isn't everything unfortunately . Now if you can find some 100-110 octane unleaded gas go full 4.5 and amile

Thanks dude. I will try 3.00 on the old firmware. I'm on the east coast so im already using 93oct...so hopefully she will run fine with 93oct. It would be nice if and when they release the new firmware which it appears will alow for you to run 3.00 on pump gas. At least thats what it says on his screen shot showing the new firmware.

Oh wait you have M5 , I'd leave it alone as the gains are pretty excellent as it is, but won't hurt trying .
I don't think the new firmware is for that specific purpose unfortunately .
Get your self some unleaded race gas and double the boost

For the M5 update the firmware first then set it to 3.0 on pump gas.

Yes, stage 1 is about it and there's a few Stage2 beta out there and by Terry's it might not even be developed any further so enjoy Stage 1 .
What I do is bump 2psi extra on race gas which bumps my Whp quite a bit

Wait, I thought you weren't planning to release the firmware for older boxes. Did I miss a post/something?
