Also following with interest, especially as you’re not a million miles away from me.

Interior looks good.

The next step is to upload the Bootmod3 software uploaded so we can tune it.

For those of you that don’t know bootmod3 is a relatively new tuning platform and works incredibly well on the latest BMW’s. We are an official UK agent for it and can supply anyone looking for a license.

For anyone with any questions please feel free to contact me.

I will be taking the car straight to Stage 2 which includes our catless 4.5 inch downpipe, ITG panel filter and a Bootmod3 OTS stage 2 map. However I will test the Stage 1 map also using DRAGY GPS verified software to show the improvement from stock in real word conditions on the road the tests I use will be 0-100kph and a 100-200kph.

Stock testing

0-100 kph = 4.41
100-200 kph = 11.02

Another small update on the interior, I couldn’t resist completing the interior with the remaining M Performance parts I was missing so I now have the handbrake handle and gaiter and also the alcantara and carbon arm rest.

Finishes things off nicely, just the seats left to do now.

Next up with the weather finally improving I got to test the maps.

Stage 1

This stage 1 package includes:
* Bootmod3 stage 1 ECU re map

Results
0-100 kph = 4.30
100-200 kph = 8.72

Image

Image

Stage 2

This stage 2 package includes :
* Catless 4.5 inch downpipe
* ITG uprated panel filter but retaining the standard air box
* Bootmod3 stage 2 ECU re map

Results
0-100 kph = 4.25
100-200 kph = 8.40

Image

Image

As you can see from these result is absolutely amazing how well the B58 engine in the x40i range responds to tuning, for a relatively low investment you will be getting some absolutely awesome real world performance.

To give you an example a stock F80 M3 will do 100-200kph in 9 seconds a Stage 1 f80 M3 will be around 7.8/8 seconds so this show how fast a Stage 2 m140/m240i can be.

The next step in the journey is a tweak on our stage 2 package, for this we will be writing a full custom file. The tuner I use for all my custom mapping is Paul Johnson (f80paul), Paul has extensive knowledge when it comes to tuning BMW’s and his tunes have become world renowned.

Me and Paul have been working together for a while now and last month we took another step forward together which has meant he has now appointed me as his official home for Paul Johnson tunes in the UK. So far we have achieved some awesome result in the M2c / M3 and M4 S55 world with my own F80 M3 claiming the S55 stock turbo UK record at 5.9 for a 100-200kph pull.

So onto the details about the custom stage 2 map.

Stage 2 custom map

This stage 2 package includes :
* Catless 4 inch downpipe.
* ITG uprated panel filter but retaining the standard air box.
* Bootmod3 licences
* Full custom live mapped Paul Johnson tune
* Optional custom exhaust burble (M4 GTS style, gunshot or flames ect)

0-100 kph = 3.99
100-200 kph = 7.89

Image

Image

The process for writing a custom file is quite a bit more involved than just the stage 2 Bootmod3 map. All of the tuning is still done via bootmod3 but this time the file will be specific for the car and built from the ground up. First Paul will send me over a base file to which I will flash onto the car, once this is on the car we will need to log the car so Paul can see how the car is responding this requires the car to be driven on the road accelerating through 3rd, 4th and 5th gear. This data is then recorded and Paul can view and make changes to suit the car, this processes is then repeated until we have the perfect tune for the car.

The main advantage of live mapping the car on the road is that you can map the car in real world conditions everyone loves a nice dyno figure however I like to ensure that with the power increase you are still able to use it all on the road and get the most out of the car.

Another cool feature I have chosen on my car is the gunshot/flame exhaust burble, although it’s not everyone’s cup of tea I’m really enjoying it. With ALL of my tuning packages you have the option to choose your style of exhaust burbles to suit your personal tastes weather that be no burbles, mild or full on aggressive we have all angles covered.

With the car performing nicely now I am going too to complete a few chassis and styling changes in the coming weeks.

After it was detailed did the front number plate holder go back on? Was wondering if anyone has mounted plate directly to the bumper instead like they seem to do on the 4 series?

I used sticky pads and mounted it straight to the bumper.

Hi Tom,

I’m a uk agent for bootmod3 and the guy who writes my custom files only uses bootmod3.

Plus I believe it’s absolutely awesome and I’m really familiar with the platform having used it for a while now.

Next up is methanol injection, I wanted to create at kit that’s totally standalone so it didn’t need a JB4 or anything else to run it.

So I’ve gone for the following:
BMS meth tank
BMS spacer plate
Snow performance meth pump
Twin BM7 nozzles
Torqbyte CM5 controller

The install was relatively simple, I’m well familiar with meth installs on the S55 and the install on this was much the same.

I will also be creating a fresh custom map with Paul for this setup.

Some pictures of the install
