    BMW Z8 Shark Injector Performance Software, 1996-2005 Models

    Increase horsepower and torque in your 1996-2005 BMW!

    The Shark Injector is an amazing hand-held unit that plugs into your car’s diagnostic port and re-flashes the computer with performance software. The software was developed by renowned BMW tuner Jim Conforti, who has nearly 20 years of BMW engine tuning experience. The Shark Injector is one of the safest and most cost-effective enhancements you can do – offering features and results that other upgrades simply cannot touch. The Shark Injector will also be upgrade-able through its own USB port, allowing you to upgrade to different software as your needs and modifications change (under development).

    Why you will love this product -
    + more power and torque, particularly in the mid-range from 3500 RPM to redline,
    + quicker throttle response, giving the car a snappier feel,
    + a safe increase in rev limit (great for staying in gear just a little longer)
    + smoother-running engine with fewer hesitations and dead spots
    + top speed limiter removed
    + true DIY install with step-by-step instructions (no downtime while your computer is shipped somewhere else for the install)
    + Upgrade and Restore features to install/uninstall on the same vehicle
    + Upgrade-able via USB connection with your PC - add a file to better suit your mods (under development)
    + Retains all of your diagnostic, service, maintenance systems and won't interfere with your normal maintenance routines

    This software is a major refinement of the stock software. It makes the car much easier to drive with less hesitation, more torque, and incredibly smooth operation. A lot of tuning has been done at the low RPM ranges to improve response. The car won’t hesitate or lag, making the car easier to drive. And with the extra torque you can drive in a higher gear and not have to downshift as often. Theoretically this means better fuel mileage too!

    How does it work? The Shark Injector makes changes to the stock BMW software in the areas of fuel enrichment, transition fueling, camshaft timing, ignition timing, and VANOS control to take full advantage of 91+ octane fuel. BMW ‘de-tuned’ cars for the North American market in the event inferior fuel was used. We reverse those changes to gain more horsepower and torque. 91 or higher octane fuel must be used.

    How does it install? The Shark Injector plugs into your car’s On Board Diagnostic (OBD) port, located under the dashboard in most cars. At the push of a button the Injector begins communicating with your car’s computer. The Shark handles everything from that point on – reading and copying the stock software, re-loading its own performance version, and checking its work along the way. The whole operation is completed in under 20 minutes. A battery charger with a continuous 10-20amp charge is required (available below if you do not currently own one).

    Shark Injector Performance Software for E39 M5
    with Special Programming for Secondary Air Pump Faults

    Performance Software System for E39 M5 2000-2003 - Includes special programming for bypassing Secondary Air Injection monitoring!

    Gains of 23 hp @ 6100 rpm and 19 lb/ft torque @ 5000 rpm -- as measured to the rear wheels in 3rd gear!! This do-it-yourself programmer includes performance software tuning plus special code for bypassing the monitoring system for the problematic Secondary Air Injection system. This may be the best performance upgrade you ever buy for your M5!

    This special version of the Shark Injector also addresses problems associated with the infamous Secondary Air Injection system. This software will prevent fault codes that occur due to blockages of the SAI system due to carbon build-up, a very common problem on the M5. Click here to read more about the SAI carbon build-up issue. Because this is part of the emissions system, this version of software is sold for off-road situations only and is not intended for street-driven cars. It is designed to prevent the codes and related SES light - not to allow your car to pass emissions tests. Sale of this programmer requires a Waiver to be signed and sent to Turner Motorsport.

    The Shark Injector is an amazing hand-held unit that downloads Conforti performance engine software directly into your 2000-2003 E39 M5 or 1999-2002 Z8 Roadster. The installation takes only minutes and is doen through the OBD-II diagnostic port in your dash. Conforti software represents the most cost-effective approach to increasing engine performance. It has been dyno-tested to provide a safe increase in power by altering fuel enrichment, cam timing and ignition timing specifically for use with premium gasoline. You can also choose between the stock rev limit (7000) or raised to 7400 RPM for optimum shift points and maximum acceleration. Not only do we re-map part-throttle fuel and spark, we also re-map other areas of chips other tuners don't touch - such as acceleration enrichment, transition fueling (how the car responds to rapid change in pedal), and VANOS control as needed to optimize the vehicle for operation on premium fuel (91 or 93 octane). This version of the Shark software uses the Euro throttle settings which are smoother and more linear than the stock US throttle programming.

    Now you can get the best power, in ALL gears! As BMW tuned the M5 quite "modestly" in the lower gears, this software makes some impressive gains in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears. Of course it also makes a measureable amount of torque and horsepower in the upper gears as well!

    Primary Features:
    • Unlock GOBS of torque and horsepower in gears 1, 2, and 3 as well as great gains in gears 4, 5, and 6.
    • Choose between 91 and 93 octane
    • Prevents SES and fault code due to air pump inefficiency
    • Choose between stock 7000 rev limit or raised to 7400
    • Top Speed Limiter removed

    This programmer works for all 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 M5 (E39).

    This USB cable is compatible with the newer version USB enabled Shark Injectors, which are distinguished by the small USB port located on the face of the device. In the past, when a Shark Injector owner needed an update made to his/her software, it required physically shipping the Shark Injector to Turner Motorsport for us to make the update for you. Advances made in the latest generation "USB" Shark Injector now make it possible for YOU to apply this type of update from your home computer, eliminating the hassle of shipping and waiting for your Shark Injector.

    This cable, when combined with any Windows based PC (or Mac running Windows via Bootcamp, VMware, Parallels, etc) and a SOON-TO-BE RELEASED Software Update application allows updates to be applied to the Shark Injector's programming. As periodic updates are released, we'll be able to email you updates to your Conforti Shark Injector, free of charge.

    Please note, this cable is NOT required to install the Shark Injector, and is only used when performing updates to your Shark Injector. Should you require updates to your Shark Injector at a later date, you may acquire the cable then -- or you may purchase the cable now to keep with your Shark Injector for future use, if needed (recommended).
