BMW 640i F12 – Stage 2 98RON

The BMW 640i F12 uses the N55B30O0 engine. It produces 235Kw (=322hp) at the flywheel based on the manufacturer’s claims. The engine is controlled by a Bosch MED17 ECU, hidden deep inside the engine bay. To get the best performance out of it with the minimal hardware modifications, an upgraded downpipe is strongly recommended. Reduced backpressure from the exhaust system brings more performance and slightly lowers fuel consumption on daily driving.
Tuning the BMW 640i is an extremely difficult task because handling its engine ECU needs to be done with very big caution. It is positioned next to the throttle valve, under the intake manifold and it takes a lot of effort to remove, reflash and and reinstall.
Remapping the ECU firmware is no easy task either because the calibration software from BMW is very complicated and protective against tuning. But with the diagnostic and reflashing assistance from Etuners in Krasnodar and A2 Performance, after a whole day at the dyno, we got a very good result.
