Can you really add up to 60 Horsepower to your BMW for under $300 and 30 minutes of your time?
The short answer is yes, you sure can. BMW’s newer turbocharged models make great power, right off the dealer’s showroom floor. This applies to the four cylinder models just as well as the 6 and 8 cylinders. With this noted, many BMW enthusiasts yearn for even more power and the BMW turbocharged 4 and 6-cylinder engines are certainly up to the task …. IF …. the engine management systems allow it. The new generation of plug & play programmer/tuners from aFe Power, Burger Tuning and Dinan allow these engines to easily make “seat of the pants” power increases with great horsepower per dollar cost ratios and very little install time. 30 years ago, we would have to spend many times these amounts to achieve a 10% to 20% power gain. We also would have spent dozens of hours to install the parts, all while working with comparatively dismal fuel economy. The “Good Old Days of Hot-Rodding” are TODAY!
Let’s take a look at a few sample installations of the basic plug & play tuners from aFe, Burger and Dinan, on some BMW turbocharged models.
aFe Scorcher Power Module:

The aFe Power SCORCHER Module is designed to alter the pressure sensor signals to increase turbo boost to an optimum level throughout the entire RPM range. The result is a harmonious balance between power, throttle response and driveability. This module provides a hassle-free installation with no cutting, drilling or splicing and installation can typically be completed in around 30 minutes. Factory electronic accessories are not affected by installing the Scorcher module. Available for most BMW turbo 4 & 6-cylinder models, including diesel and M3/4/5/6.
Burger Juice Box-Plus:
This plug-n-play performance tuner gives you huge power gains in just a few minutes. Choose the default gains or select maximum gains to be used with higher octane fuel. Simply unplug two factory wires and insert the unit. That’s it — no cutting, no modifications, no tools. Plus, at the default setting, it will not trigger any codes. Available for most 6-cylinder BMW turbo models (except M & diesel) plus MINI.
Dinan DINANTRONICS Sport Performance Tuner:
DINANTRONICS Sport employs simple design and execution that allows for easy installation or removal in just minutes, producing results you’ll feel, and enjoy, from the first start. The DINANTRONICS Sport Tuner incorporates Bluetooth capabilities that allow user controlled adjustability and a live boost monitor to keep track of the action.
