    • Switzer Performance cracks 600 wheel horsepower with the F10 M5 S63TU - Switzer P700 F10 M5 tuning package

      Here we go, the S63TU tuning scene is heating up. The question on the new M5 is how well it will respond to bolt on's considering its higher boost and higher compression ratio compared to the standard S63 twin turbo V8 in the X5 and X6 M. Well, it responds pretty well as the Switzer Performance P700 package broke the 600 wheel horsepower mark putting down a very impressive 604.77 wheel horsepower in SAE correction on a Dynojet.

      The P700 package consists of an ECU tune said to be plug and play (OBD-II flash apparently), Switzer exhaust system, and drop in air filters. The price for all of this $6,999.00. Not cheap, but the increase is almost 70 wheel horsepower over the baseline which was a very healthy 536 wheel horsepower.

      Expect to see more 600+ wheel results coming for the F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6.

        RDsport's exhaust for the F10 M5 is $8k. How does the price look now?

        Heh well I agree to a degree. But... hopefully the tune can be purchased separately here but I doubt it. It's not the best pricing but it's also not the worst.

        Biggest thing to remember is 4.8 liters vs. 5.5 liters. M157 will always have the edge. But the S63 is just getting started. It will get better once there's more out there.

        The S63 does have the displacement disadvantage but it also likely has the more efficient manifold design.

        What exactly happens when you go from 2.25bar to a 3.5bar?

        I'm guessing it allows you to raise boost.

        That's what I'm guessing too, just want to double check.

        The 535i will have a 2.25 bar map sensor the M5 will have a 3 bar map sensor. M5 runs 1.5 bar of boost then you need to add atmospheric pressure so runs 2.5bar, hence the need for a 3 bar map sensor.

        Who sells or has that 3 bar MAP sensor?

        Not that easy. The ecu is configured to run a 2.25 bar map sensor. Plugging in a 3 bar sensor will not work. The ecu won't know it's 3bar so the linearisation will be all wrong

        Ah so the 3 bar sensor will have to come with a flash tune then.

        Yes. Adjusting the burger tuning box to the 3bar sounds like it is easy to adjust with the USB cable but changing the actual car to a 3 bar needs to be done within the ecu
