• Is Dinan a hypocrite? Piggyback 'Turbotronics' S63TU V8 tuning coming from Dinan for the F10/F12/F13 M5 and M6

      This certainly is interesting to see considering Dinan took blatant shots at piggyback style tuning boxes for the new generation of turbocharged BMW's earlier this year. Has Dinan had a change of heart? What likely is happening is that people are slowly but surely educating themselves on tuning options available for turbo BMW's and more often than not piggyback boxes offer greater horsepower for less money. This is especially true in comparison to Dinan tunes.

      As it stands, you can get greater performance with a piggyback for $500 than a Dinan flash for $3500.00. It seems people are wising up to not overpaying for a name brand simply for its name and it appears Dinan's attempt to shed doubt on the quality of piggyback tuning was not enough to get people to stop buying piggybacks.

      Dinan is in business to make money so it looks like some pride may need to be swallowed here if what Dinan is advertising below is true. The Dinan Turbotronics TCU is labeled a Tuning Control Unit which one can logically conclude is an external piggyback box that will rely on the factory ECU to remain in place.

      Is Dinan a hypocrite? You decide.

        The latest 1024 bit RSA encryption is pretty tough to crack.

        Altering the sensor data is much easier if not as controllable as a native tune.
