Do you have any source for this info? Hartge does a piggyback/stand alone ECU and others do a remap. Obviously different approaches between some tuners...

Hartge is the only tuner that I know of that has done back to back acceleration runs with a proven reduction in time between speeds (the vids are on Youtube).

And why isn't the PP cars trap speed at the 1/4-mile faster than the std. M5?
And why is the PP car 25hp down on the Supersprint car (at the rear wheels)?

(trap speed is a good indicator of power gain whereas ET is a good indicator of launch and grip at the start)
Hartge doesn't actually tune anything. Their primary business is wheels. Check the lasting results of that piggyback and what happened. I should have not replied to this thread. This creates arguments. It is the truth about the tune. Honestly I am leaving it at that. It can be verified if you investigate it.
