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 !!!.
That's awesome!

What brand downpipes do you have?
Armytrix and exhaust is Armytrix as well.
Nice! Can't wait for some videos for how it sounds and maybe some pulls

Mspired, other than tune and exhaust what else have you uprgaded? Stock fuel pump and injectors? What about tires? Is it worth it to look at drag radials if I end up tracking it. Based on my experience with a 4th gen fbody with an LT1 engine, there were so many more variables to look at after breaking into the 11s or even thinking about 10s.

I am completely stock besides tune/down pipes and exhaust. Stock fuel pumps/injectors. I am on snow tires currently and I would assume with better tires and a better launch it would be a 10.6X car. Which I have a run on dragy unofficially though because of the slope of the run. Although I am surprised somebody hasn't come out with a decent set of intakes for this platform that don't throw codes on a tune, it would definitely be a power adder.

Obviously there must be significant differences when you compare factory horsepower ratings but what's so different about the M5's 4.4L that makes it impossible for the M550i 4.4L to equal it with the usual tuning of both? Well, I guess the turbos are different as are the factory tunes but what else?
