ECU Tune and Downpipes

Hello All,


I am new to the 7 series world as I have just picked up a 2016 750i M sport. I love it and it will be my new daily replacing a problematic built jeep wrangler. A little about me, I am fairly young (30 years old) and I have had 10 BMWs. I currently own an M4 as well. My question is if anybody has any experience or advice about adding a tune and downpipes to these cars to give it a little more muscle and sound. The car feels fast but I just cant leave anything too stock.

Just just a simple tune you will get a huge amount of toque increase.

I've also had a F82 M4 with stage one ECU, but for daily I think it should be enough.

With a resonator delete you will get the sound you like.

Yea brother for sure!

Iím working with a couple different places right now to get some info. Project gamma in Houston has downpipes. They are looking into front mount intakes.

Iím also gonna be taking a look at a pure turbos upgrade. Gotta make sure the stock tranny and diff etc can handle the extra power.

Looking to get this beast to 700hp mark

So far it seems DME and RK tunes will be best bet on tune. Just waiting to hear from PG on intakes

Let us know what you find out on intakes. I'll buy a set from them too. Intakes exists for the 550i so I imagine it's a minor change to support the 7.

On turbos, someone with a 650i just did them on his N63. Should check out the 6 series forums.

Bootmod3 will come out with their OTS maps any day now and in my opinion it is the best package on the market.

Agreed. I run bootmod3 on my M4 and it's night and day. Before that I had JB4 and it did the job but it's crap compared to BM. And for the price you can't beat it

I think BM3 is great from what I read. In my case though, I believe ill need a custom tune because of my mods vs an OTS option.

Im naive to what exactly bm3 offers though. Is it strictly OTS or do they offer custom solutions as well?

Any reason you didnt decide on a custom tune vs the ots options?

I'm considering a custom map. I wasn't looking to get the most performance necessarily. Just a nice extra push

What mods do you have that would need a custom tune? You can have both custom and ots as well as data logs, own map customization etc. If you need BM3 pm me and I can help you out.

Still no draggy times unfortunately. I did however run into a brand new widebody hellcat charger on my way home from the gym last night. I explained to the guy that I had just traded in my hellcat and was curious how the 7 would match up.

We only managed to get one highway run in Mexico in. He had me by about a car up to 170mph. I was very very impressed with how well my car hung with him. If the Hellcat was modified it would have been a very different story but it seems a stage 2 g11 is about as close as can be to a stock hellcat
