Active-8 Tuning Module for BMWs from Active Autowerke
Active Autowerke has been in the business of BMW performance for over 30 years. One of their specialties includes developing BMW software that brings your BMWâ€™s performance to new heights. Active Autowerke just introduced their so-called Active-8 module that is supposed to be a weather-proof device that you simply plug into your carâ€™s ECU to improve output. Judging by the pictures they provided, it better be as tempestuous weather could ruin your fun.
At the moment cars like those based on the F3x platform, E7x, F10, F12 and F8x are compatible with this module that is available for purchase. According to Karl Hugh, AAâ€™s Technical Director and head of engineering, a gain of 65 to 75 HP is attainable, at the wheels, combined with a 60 to 68 lb-ft of torque.
The device uses an advanced 64-bit processor that works in tandem with BMWâ€™s DME without an issue and can be installed in under an hour, leaving no fingerprint on the carâ€™s on-board data which basically means you wonâ€™t void your warranty.
