What is BM3?
Up until bootmod3 came into existence there were two popular ways of tuning the BMW F series, using a piggyback device to add boost and sending your ECU (DME) out for a one time flash to a tuner of your choice. With the piggyback the end user has partial control over the boost the car is running but no direct control over any other engine parameters such as ignition timing, lambda targets, fuel pressure targets, torque/load targetting, throttle mapping, valve timing and duration, among others. BM3 allows end user to customize their tune for different modifications, octane levels, go bigger turbos, built motor, datalog how the car was running, to get the most performance out of their car.
bootmod3 is a full custom tuning platform for the factory engine computer (ECU/DME) that provides the end user with mobile applications for Android, iOS and Web Browser enabled devices. Users can change their tunes through the OBD port at will using the mobile apps taking about a minute to do so. In order to enable OBD map switching and programming on the BMW F series cars a one-time removal of the ECU(DME) from the car is required to apply what is commonly referred to as the OBD unlock. It is a software patch that allows OBD programming access to the factory engine computer. From that point forward the user is free to change their maps/tunes in the convenience of their driveway, at the track, on the dyno or wherever and whenever you’d like to do so.
