RK Tunes M550i goes 10s...

I'll let the owner fill you guys in on the details. But it's official.. We have a 10 second M550i with nothing more than an exhaust and tune. WTF.

RK Tunes M550i goes 10s...

So until the owner pops in,
What do you know?
Temperature?
Elevation?
Just a tune it must have been like 50 degrees out, hard to run times like that down here with humidity and heat

He beat me to it. That prick This is exciting though. I don't think I'll ever own anything but a turbo car. Thinking back on my E46 M3 days where we would spend 10k for 20-30whp lol

Awesome results... The car has downpipes in addition to flash tune and exhaust. This is based on another statement posted by the owner.

There was another forum member that was also flashed with RK tune. I think his 0-60 time was about 3.5. Can't remember the quarter mile, but I'm sure it's much slower then what you got.

Wonder if RK tune made modification to its tune?

Yeah, they really went out of their way and I did a whole ton of research / asking questions and these guys really knew what they were doing and put me at ease . We spent about a day on the Dyno and he kept revising . It's all In tune !!!.
