Recommendation for HC Performance

Hey Guys,
I just wanted to share my experience with few tuning options that some of you might consider.

Firstly my car have few mods:
Eventuri Intake
Catless Keller Performance Downpipes
Akrapovic Catback Exhaust

So all of mods are targeted in the better "breathing" of car.

At first I got racechip installed it was noticeable difference (Sorry but I didnt check results of car back then) since I had catless downpipes i got into cel light so needed ecu tune anyway.


I've decided to contact Halim from HC-Performance that I knew from Bootmod3 community and that helped my friend with his 335i. Showed him stats and he said it's easy to beat.

And I couldn't be happier - the tune was 36% cheaper than evolve and it works much better. The car feels like rocket.
This is the 1ST run with launch control


And 100-200 time was 8,02 stock then 6,62 time with evolve now on just one try 5,91 sec with HC performance.
The 1,4 mile time I didn't have space to try yet but on one try it made 10,59 on worse launch (0,2 sec) so should be able to make 10,3 if it perfectly grips.

I'm still waiting on dyno appointment to see the difference in power distribution but I just wanted to share that Halim does great work.

As few people on forum recommended evolve automotive I went for it.

The results are bellow - my car stock ecu tune made 650 HP (without catless downpipes yet)


And after downpipes, stage2 ecu tune and a lot colder day (34 vs 28 celsius ) I only got 50hp difference and torque same as stock.

The difference is noticeable from higher revs.

Stock ECU without Downpipes
0-100 time was 3,14 seconds
100-200 was 8,02 seconds
Evolve Automotive Stage 2 times with dp's replaced
0-100 was still 3,14 (had a bit of traction issues at 3rd or 4th run and decided to buy new tires..."broke them in" but the results were ... the same. 3,14 max.
However the 100-200 time went down to 6,62 seconds - you could feel the difference so I knew it somehow works.


But not being happy with the results on dyno (if you think just DP should give 20-30hp the tune added me only another 20-30hp on top)
Contacted evolve with all data but they didn't care much.

I've decided to contact Halim from HC-Performance that I knew from Bootmod3 community and that helped my friend with his 335i. Showed him stats and he said it's easy to beat.

fyi - no one asked me to share it I decided to make it so I save someone money from mod that they wouldn't be happy with.

If you go to units in Dragy and switch it to 60-130, it will show the stored values. Will save you some time.

Do you know what PSI and Torque is your tune set to? Those numbers are incredible and I have heard Halim is very good.

I have done 2x M5 HCP and both are rockets. Stage 2 did 100-200 in 5.7 and 1/4mile in 10.35. Modes were downpipes and drop ins.

I've been a follower of HCP since 2015, then got my X4 M40i tuned by him in 2016 ran like a beast till 2018 when I got into an M3 because I was running his tune once again haha. M3 HCP did not lose a run and Mexico approved my citizenship
We will do the same now F90 M5 HCP

bm3tuning Aatish and I will be helping locals

Yeah dragy is as follows:
top 0-100 km/h
2,77 sec
repeatable 0-100
2.87 sec

top 100-200
5,91 sec
repeatable 100-200
6,3 sec

The car is sick 0-100 however 100-200 it's not as fast as others - being explained as "safe map". Want to try on race map for methanol and want to compare results then.

Top 1/4 mile is 10,5

keep in mind all times were done on different days/different weather so it's not really 1:1 comparsion, also had tyres changed to michelins from pirelli
