Nice! For me the trade-off with these maps is the peakiness of the torque. The sort of antithesis of 'linear'. Makes it more like a diesel in terms of the delivery characteristic. Look how BMW have it set originally - thats a very flat torque 'curve'! Its swings and roundabouts. What you get is mid-range acceleration that is vastly improved (and really out of proportion to the relatively modest (!) power gain of 20%). What you lose is smoothness of delivery. So as always, its not what it does on the dyno but how it feels to you. If you like it then its a win all the way.
