Looking for a software tuning solution for my 2006 550i 6MT. I have a good deal of experience tuning with standalone units Electromtive, Haltech, and MS, also a little Hondata. Can anyone point me towards some info on this. I'm looking to do a small single turbo setup, the only thing that is holding me back is a software tuning solution, so far I all I have been able to find are E-flashes of pre-tuned maps for a stock 550i. I do have some experience with ISTA, INPA, and NCSEXPERT as well.

Sorry For the noob question.

Is this the naturally aspirated motor? Not the N63 right? Because if its the NA motor, you aren't going to get any or much support. That was an incredibly small market if I recall, in fact I don't even know what ECU it runs.

Yes the N62 is the NA V8, and you are correct there is very little aftermarket support.

Wasn't a huge market, and there is often not much that can be gained in the NA world. The N52 gets very little support and theres a lot more of them. I think the first step is to see what kind of ECU is on there and see if it shares any security with another vehicle.
