I will try and record a video tonight and post 0-100 for you to see. The weather should be about 75 tonight with about 90% humidity. In Houston, Tx during the summer it’s like inhaling peanut butter when you walk outside.

I met another guy with 550 Dinan 2 and he walked me of the line every time but at least a car . We didn't run the 60-120 run though . So my faith in Dinan is back .
I also spoke with my dealer and was told once Dinan is installed if I absolutely don't love it few days after INsTALL I can get refund and they will delete program from my car

Dyno shops are notorious for producing false numbers. Dinan is one of the few aftermarket companies that puts in significant amounts of time to ensure their dyno numbers are correct. If the dyno is measuring the power by strapping down the car and driving on rollers, then the data is probably not realistic. So of course, Dinan's numbers won't match the 3 pulls for $60 dyno shop. The Dinan dyno methodology is explained here:http://www.dinancars.com/university/

The only "real" results that regular person can realistically measure is at the local dragstrip. My Stage 2 results are below and I'll say they aren't too shabby for a race weight of 4760lbs. Naturally, a 650 with Dinan will be even faster.

Dinan products are tried and tested tons of times before being put on the shelf for sale. One is not just paying for the brad but for all the work that has gone into developing the product. I have a friend who had his older M5 engine sent to Dinan, stroker kit etc etc and his car has been running over 2 years with not a single problem to date. If I had the 650, I would have done the Dinan upgrades in a blink of an eye. Pay more but peace of mind.
