Tune by TTFS

Anyone here got their F10 M5 tune done by TTFS (Frank Smith) in MD?

If yes, care to share the info on power gain, reliability, dyno gains, etc.?

I'm interested as well and hope to make a visit to have a stock Dyno to establish the starting point from which to build/tune. Late October or early November are my timeframe. Are you interested in seeing if we could work a discount if 2 or more of us have it done at the same time?

I never was able to make it last year for an initial dyno but have every intention to do so this Spring. You?

Based on my research on the tunes in general I've decided not to go that route since I don't think it's safe. It's too much pressure in the engine head after the tune which can cause damage in the long run. I could be wrong but that's what I observed from reading online

I currently have a DINAN piggy-back but I'm scheduled to have baseline dynos and a Stage 2, 93 octane tune installed by Tuning Tech (TTFS) Monday, June 22, 2020. I have spoken with another forum member (Jus10Blake) and he said Frank and his son Gabe were able to correct some coding issues as well as get his F10 M5 running EXTREMELY well with a tune. I intend to document the experience with TTFS and report back.
