Velos Tune For X5m

I just installed the stage 1 tune from Velos on my X5M. This tune is truly amazing. Amazing torque and topend. Can't wait to get downpipes and move on to stage 2. Do not hesitate. Buy it you won't regret it!!!!!!

I'm amusing your tune only or did you add in the drop in filters?

K&N is a company that makes aftermarket air filters for almost all makes and models.

Currently, there the only intake solutions for our cars. I'm curious if Green filters have an option.

According to Velos they already have a 11 sec tune only X5M as well as low 12s tune only with 22 inch rims. I'll have track times in May when the track opens up. Shooting for mid 11s with Stage 2 tune , K&Ns, and DPs on stock tires and rims all on 90 octane.

I have found one guy in the 11s on a Velos tune. Claims he runs 11.8 consistently but he got off of his run flats and has an exhaust which all makes a difference.

I could see you hitting 11.7 no problem with that setup. Wish I had a better track to go to my 60ft times seem to be killing me.

Velos is definitely killing it with there tunes just wish there were more numbers posted. I'm confident my truck has more in it. But then again I got my tunes and programmer for a fraction of the price of what I've seen from the other tuners so I guess you get what you pay for.

Yeah I agree swapping to non-runflats makes a huge difference RF are heavier tires. Exhaust will play a marginal difference on these cars as the stock exhaust is already a good flowing unit to begin with.

I'm gonna plat around with my tire pressures to see if it makes any difference in 60 fts where I am at. Most of the time trap prep is good if I go on the drag event days.

With your trap I agree you can manage better ET with an improved 60 ft.
