Why should the S55 not achieve the same gains seen on other similar engines?
The S55 is a similar engine to the S63TU?
It does sound like an impressive tune though. I need to look into this example because it could be the first one provided here that might support your claim of easy, large ECU flash power gains of the S55 and the ability run combustion pressure on street gas I've not been able to find other examples of alternatively that the stock turbos are capable of much more volume than that M utilizes. And it being a turbo M car makes it even more relevant but I need to see the details of the S63TU and the tune to know if it's potentially applicable to the S55. We are both speculating and using questionable science here but we should be able to still get a reasonable idea of the potential.
