Subject: <E28> M30 Conforti Trip
I'd have to agree with Chris Guy's review of the Jiom Conforti
performance chip for the M30 motor. I installed the new chip in my '87
535is about 2 weeks ago.
As Chris noted...there is noticable difference was a rock steady cold
idle..... previously the cold idle would surge repeatedly for the first
1-2 minutes of operation.
Performance is vastly improved in mid-range throttle response. The car
used to accelerate in what seemed to be step intervals....where the car
would seem to plateau momentarily and then resume full power
acceleration. With the new chip the acceleration is consistently strong,
smooth and linear from 2500 - 6000 rpm.
Top end-performance is similarly improved....the steppped acceleration
that I mentioned previously used to flatten and stay flat after about
5200-5500. Now the car still pulls strong at 6200.
To me, this is exactly how the car should have been engineered to
perform from the factory. I'll be curious to see if there are any
differences in my exhaust emissions when I go for state vehicle
insprection in March.
