Dinan Stage 1 Performance Engine Software for BMW F80 M3 F82 F83 M4 F87 M2C

Dinan Stage 1 Tune

Dinan has a long and storied past when it comes to engine tuning having introduced our first engine performance chip in the mid 80’s — over 3 decades ago. From those early years with chips, followed by engine software and then to our own external control modules we have become experts in nearly every possible way to extract safe, reliable power from the factory powerplant. While we have long preferred the unheard of control and sophistication capable of being achieved from engine software, over the past 6 years that option was not one afforded to us. That changes now with the re-introduction to flash tuning for Dinan with the S55 engine. 

The first of the next generation of Dinan flash tunes, the S55 calibrations are held to the same principles of the past; performance, reliability and safety.  Dinan performance engine software is so much more than just tuning up the turbo boost after all.  It is a fully re-tuned engine management program that maximizes power while keeping all the BMW factory safeguards in place.  Protecting your BMW while giving the most performance is the definition of “Performance Without Sacrifice”.  Drivetrain and engine components are analyzed for strength then the callibration is tested on the dyno and in the real world for durability and drivability.

This next generation of Dinan flash tunes does differ from the past; however, in that there are many different options to choose from depending on your needs or desires.  Whether you want a warranted tune for 93 pump gas when under the factory warranty, an E85 performance tune for maximum performance when outside of the factory warranty, or something in between, chances are Dinan has an option for you.

Features, Benefits & Requirements Specific to S55 Dinan Stage 1 Performance Engine Software:

More Power: Max gains up to 146 HP / 155 lb-ft of torque over stock on the F87 M2C and 122 HP / 145 lb-ft of torque over stock on the F8x M3/M4 using E85.
+  Dinan Stage 1 performance software includes a limited lifetime warranty against defects in the software and provides free updates and reflashes as they become available. Labor or shipping charges are not included in the warranty and are at the discretion of the place of install.
Access to numerous octane calibrations depending on your needs (91, 93, 100, 104, and E85). Switching between mappings would require a reflash at a Dinan authorized dealer. 
The Dinan Heat Exchanger (D780-0001A) or equivalent is highly recommended when running ANY of the Stage 1 maps. Without the heat exchanger installed the vehicle will tend to heat soak / derate under any meaningful load. Advertised gains as a result will not be able to be achieved.

Features and Benefits Common to All S55 Performance Engine Software Variants:

+  Full map rescaling for drivability from idle to wide open throttle and everywhere in between
+  Top speed governor removed
+  Retains all BMW factory engine damage safeguards
+  Torque gains drastically improve acceleration
+  No hesitation between shifts
+  Downloads through the OBD2 Port
+  Hassle free operation — Install and enjoy
