Any interest in Exhaust, intake scoops, or Chip tune for X6///M?

I will be taking my car in soon to RPI (Race Precision Inc) to let them use my car for test fitting for an exhaust, intake scoops, and chip tune. Is anyone here interested in getting any of these things for their car? If you're not familiar with RPI, the make a lot of products for high end cars (BMW, Mercedes, Aston Martin, Porsches) Check out their website www.raceprecision.com. I had the intake scoops for my old 545i and they really made a noticable difference. The process will probably take around a month so I wanted to see if there is anyone with an X6///M that is really interested in these products. I will post pics and dyno charts as soon as everything is completed. I am really excited about the gains that will come from their products. The chip may be upwards of about 90-100 hp gain, 10-20 hp for the intake scoops, and I am not sure about the exhaust. Post replies if you're interested!

I believe in Eisenmann Race. They are working on X5 M exhaust and it should be out soon.

I am interested in a modest chip tune. Not looking to get carried away with exhaust. I use this thing everyday and carry customers.

Interested in chip tune. I agree with 998M - modest.
Exhaust is almost a gimme - currently, the exhaust note does not lend credence to the vehicle, IMHO

RPI is no joke. They do amazing work on the M5's. This is great news if they tune the X5 and 6 M's. Maybe we can get them to tune the other V8 turbos in the x6 5.0 too.

90 to 100 hp gain from a chip?! Dare I say, Holy CHIP! That sounds massive.

An exhaust would be in the cards somewhere in the future, eventhough I havent even ordered my car yet, that gets done tomorrow

Some fat exhaust tip will be a must have aswell. I want garden pot diameter tips!!

LOL. Great enthusiasm.

Turbocharged vehicles are the ones that stand to benefit most from ECU tunes ("chips"). Fundamentally, the boost is "turned up", for more power. I believe that they (Juice Box, anyway), tricks the car into thinking it is running at higher altitude, and thus the boost gets turned up by the ECU. Normally aspirated engines don't have this luxury, and as such, the tuner has only to play around with fuel:air ratios, valve timing, etc., often for less gain in horsepower.

90-100 HP from a vehicle that already has 555 turbocharged HP is not THAT much of an increase. With the BMW 335i N54 engine (base HP - 300), they are getting 450hp+, with massive torque

But really - let's be honest. You need that

Agree with TTBear. But I would be surprised at 90 to 100 hp with just a chip. I would think that an intake and hi-flow exhaust would be needed as well.
