The increased power is better indicated in the 80-200km/h runs or in the trap speed on a quarter mile run. Like the quarter mile run that was reported for one tuned car here that did not have a higher trap speed than a std M5... You can get a better launch and hence a better ET with better tires, but the trap speed indicates if you got more hp.

I guess Gustav of M5Board/GTBoard might know more about the Hartge tune and any issues with it.
Agreed on all points.

lol! I meant to say the manual on the Dyno is 26 pages, not 2 :-)
