This sounds like GM all over again, where Chevrolet, Pontiac and Buick had the same cars with slight differences in styling and interior equipment.
It certainly is not going quite as smoothly as some had hoped. It might even be better if Porsche was still its own entity. "

" I wonder why the S63 is still stuck in boost controller world, while the 55 already has given up at least partial read/write control. Interesting....Great news for sure though. "

" Well that was pretty fast. As reported last week the M3 / M4 S55 engine control unit has been cracked. Keep in mind this is very early in the flash tuning process of the new M3 and M4 but there are multiple tuners with the ability to flash the ECU out there with many more to come. Jailbreak Tuning posted the first Dynojet results of their flash tune and the result on 91 octane pump fuel is an increase of 20 peak horsepower at the wheels.

Obviously peak horsepower does not tell the whole story especially on the newer BMW turbo motors as the gains in the mid-range are in the 50 wheel horsepower range. The torque curve is much fatter and the peak torque figure increases by 42 lb-ft at the wheels.

People will obviously being comparing these flash figures to the BMS piggyback tune figures. As of today, piggyback tuning shows greater horsepower and torque gains. It will be interesting to see how these two approaches play out and the way they play out will likely be reminiscent of the N54 tuning scene in which each approach has its place with many people using both for the optimum setup.

Regardless, the flash tuning era of the S55 inline-6 motor is officially underway.

Agreed, i'm well aware of those builds. Nelsons motors often displace over 10.0 litres and are built for 1/4 mile so they're not built for insane top end runs. I remember LMR built that 2000+hp C6 a yr or two ago but it just couldn't put the power down on the road. I think it did beat a lambo or two the runway event it won though.
Yes, there are plenty making over 600 rwhp that are streetable. "

It was a comment in general, not likely to happen. You're correct though, anything Android, Windows, Linux (actually, anything that is code-related). They seem to find an exploit when people say it can't be done. I'll post the question over there to see if there are any BMW guys interested in giving it a shot. "
