****NEW CustomROM Features Available Now!  Our first release of the bootmod3 CustomROM is now ready for the N55 engine vehicles while we continue to work on adding these features to other vehicles in the bootmod3 lineup. 



All new CustomROM tunes come with our fixed OTS Rolling Anti-Lag (13-14psi) at no charge.   Fully customizable Anti-Lag is an available option for $200 and includes various tunable settings and safeties such as Anti-Lag Boost, AFR, min Accel Pedal required, Max. Time in Anti-lag mode, Engine Speed, Min and Max Temperature thresholds for Oil, Exhaust Gas Temps and others.  **note all Map Switching slots 1-4 share the same Anti-Lag settings.

For instructions on how to use the Anti-Lag functionality please visit this link:


Map Switching 

This is what to expect from Map Switching:  Initially you’ll buy a new CustomROM tune from us,  Paul and his team will work to dial the tune in on the mods and fuel type you choose.  Next,  you’ll have 3 additional optional slots, sold separately,  to have variations of this map. 

Some examples of great uses for map switching are to have street or drag map variation with torque by gear limitations for different tires or road surfaces,   a kill map with higher boost/timing to be used on occasion,  a daily map with reduced boost, valet, or flames map, etc. 


Flex Fuel 

A Flex Fuel tune will start off as a low ethanol pump gas or race gas tune and then dynamically adjust boost, timing, AFR, and fuel supply depending on how much ethanol content is added to the fuel tank.   To allow for Flex Fuel tuning, an Ethanol (alcohol) fuel sensor and an Ethanol Content Analyzer (ECA) CANBus device need to be connected to the vehicle’s PT-CAN. To use Port Injection with a Flex Fuel tune, we recommend a PI controller such as the Motiv Reflex which adjusts the port injection output based on the ethanol content from the sensor.

**N55s require upgraded fuel system components that are sufficient to support the ethanol % that you intend to use with your Flex Fuel tune. (I.E. upgraded HPFP, LPFP, Port Injection, and or Methanol Injection). 


 To read about these new CustomROM features available on the N55 engine refer to document below:

bootmod3 CustomROM Release - BMW S55 Engine


These are results that can be expected with stock turbos on an average reading Dynojet in good ambient conditions:

  • 93 Octane Pump Gas + Spool HPFP:  400+whp


These approximate results apply to Pure Stage 2+ and Vargas GC+ on a average reading Dynojet in ideal ambient conditions. 

  • 93 Octane Pump Gas+Meth Dorch Stage 2 HPFP LPFP:  520+whp


Custom tuning for N55 Stock turbos/stock fuel system is available for pump gas, race gas, and ethanol blends with methanol injection.  Results will vary depending on the fuel used and the weigh/traction of your particular N55 model.

With Paul’s Stage 2 93 octane tune on stock turbo / stock fuel system you can expect 390+ Whp on an average reading Dynojet in good ambient conditions.

Upgraded turbo and ethanol tunes for N55 require upgraded fuel systems, port injection, and or methanol injection.  3.5 Bar Sensor is recommended as well.

  • Top speed limiter removal

Our custom tunes require the remote tuning platform Bootmod3 by Pro Tuning Freaks.   BM3 licenses can be purchased here https://www.protuningfreaks.com/

Once you have purchased a custom tune from us and have activated your BM3 license you will need to request a custom tune within the BM3 app.  Here's how:

Within the Bootmod3 app you will go to your "My Maps" screen and click the button at the top "Request Custom", then choose  "Paul Johnson Tunes".   In the description/comments list your mods, fuel(tested eth% etc), and goals for the tune.

Once we receive your payment and your BM3 tune request Paul will prepare the base map for you to flash. 

Once the base map is flashed to the vehicle you will datalog the car.  Paul will review the logs and make the necessary revisions to the tune based on the logs.
