Its name comes from the game of poker, it wears a “black jacket” and the flange turns any car into a jackpot: with its new Straight premium manufacturer AEZ has convincingly combined a two-colour design and high quality to create a top product.

In its 6th edition, the BMW M3/M4 presents with a 3.0 litres six-cylinder serial motor, thanks to its default Biturbo charge the ideal basis for additional power increases: optimisation of the motor electronics by G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5 V1 already increases power by 89 to a total of 520 PS. Raising the V-max limit permits the G-POWER M3/M4 a maximum speed in excess of 325 km/h at the same time.
The additional module Bi-Tronik 5 V1 used in the BMW M3/M4, connected upstream of the original motor control unit, records the information measured and submitted by the vehicle sensors before they reach the serial control unit. The data that are read in are modified by the Bi-Tronik 5 microprocessor and thus submitted to the serial control unit. This in turn determines the parameters required for the output, such as fuel amount and ignition time, before initiating a moderate increase of the charging pressure. (more…)
