A previous customer was new to the aftermarket modification scene and heard positive reviews about our shop, so he came to us to have an aFe air intake system purchased from us to be installed at our facility. Satisfied, but still craving more power, he came back to us for an ECU reflash by Active Autowerke.
While it is perfectly acceptable to run an aftermarket modifications such as an intake system on a naturally aspirated (non turbocharged/supercharged) vehicle, in order to gain the most power out of them, one must reflash the vehicle’s engine control unit to gain the maximum amount of power as well as gas mileage.
The 550i with intake and ECU reflash runs significantly smoother while picking up a few more horsepower and mpg as well. The customer will be returning soon for an exhaust upgrade to truly waken up the car!
