BMW E46 M3 Shark Injector Performance Software, 1996-2005 Models

BMW E46 M3 Shark Injector Performance Software, 1996-2005 Models The easiest software flashing tool in the world! Power & Torque Upgrades in Minutes!

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).

E46 M3 Shark Injector Performance Software Programmer With Sport Mode Memory

Shark Injector Performance software includes:

  • Saves your last Sport Mode setting
  • Horsepower and torque gains
  • Faster and smoother throttle response
  • Top speed limiter removed
  • Extremely easy to install/uninstall
  • Reversible and reusable

Performance software is a must-have upgrade on your E46 M3 and you won't find an easier and better software solution than the Shark Injector. Developed by BMW tuning expert Jim Conforti, this device plugs into the car's diagnostic port and flashes new performance files into your car's engine computer (ECU). There's no removal of the ECU and shipping, no cables, no laptop required - only a battery charger! Installation takes just a few minutes and your engine will perform like never before!

The M3 performance software was developed on the dyno to create maximum power and torque using premium 91+ octane fuel and revising the torque limiters in the ECU. The software makes changes to the ECU's maps and algorithms for fuel injection, ignition timing, VANOS and camshaft movement, and transitional fueling. We modify the maps for part throttle and full throttle so you get better response and more torque at all RPM. Choose between a stock or raised rev limit. The top speed limiter is removed. By fine tuning these maps we've been able to improve the S54 engine beyond what BMW did by making more power and torque and a smoother-running engine.

The Shark Injector plugs into the diagnostic port inside the E46 cabin. With the battery charger supplying power, press the Upgrade button and within minutes the ECU is reflashed with the new performance tune. No other software product on the market comes close to how easy it is to install. You can use the Restore button to re-install the stock BMW software at any time. Detailed instructions are included. Other tuners require you to remove the ECU and ship it to them or use a laptop to read and write a new file. The Shark Injector is ready to install right out of the box! A planned future upgrade will allow you to use the USB port to load different performance files.


E46 M3 Dyno
Power and Torque Gains
Stock: 278.2 whp / 235.3 wtrq
Sharked: 284.2 whp / 236.9 wtrq
Peak Gain 6.0 rear wheel HP and 1.6 rear wheel Torque
(note: the max gain (biggest improvement) is 9 rear wheel HP between 7000 and 8000 rpm)

The Sport Mode Memory option will remember if you left the car in Sport Mode or not. When you restart the car it will be in the last setting you used. This is perfect for owners who use Sport Mode all the time. You won't have to remember to press the button each time you start the car. The Sport Mode button functions the same as before so you can turn Sport on/off at any time. The software will remember which one you left it in.

    E46 M3 Power Package - Shark Injector, Power Pulleys, & IAT Relocation Kit

    Shark Injector Performance Software
    The enthusiast's choice for over a decade, the Shark Injector's performance is only equaled by its own ease of install! Tune your ECU at the press of a button simply by plugging into the under-dash OBDII diagnostic port, there is no removal of your car's computer; no laptop or cables required. What does the Shark offer?

    • Unlock torque and horsepower
    • Smoother engine with less hesitation
    • Improved throttle response
    • Rev limit increased to 8100 or 8600
    • Top speed limiter removed
    • Installs in minutes!
    • Advanced features optional - DSC button controls Sport mode (only one button to push) or Sport mode memory (car remembers you Sport mode preference even after shutting the car off).

    Turner Motorsport Power Pulleys 
    Underdrive Power Pulleys work to 'free up' horsepower. Any accessory that spins from the main drive belt is using up power. That's power that could otherwise be used to move the car. By giving some of that power back to the engine, you can make the car faster! We measured 10.7 whp at 6960 rpm and 8.1 lb-ft of torque at 5550 on a 1995 M3. Race pulleys deliver even more power. 

    Another "no-downside" upgrade, we even include a new belt. Total install time for a 3-piece pulley set should be around 1.5 hours. We offer three options in pulleys:
    1.) No alternator pulley included - for cars with big amps and powerful stereo systems that need the extra juice.
    2.) Street Power Pulleys - our most popular option with no downside!
    3.) Race Power Pulleys - delivering 15 "free" horsepower, this set underdrives the water pump, power steering pulley, and alternator for lower temps, less wear, and more power. Not for street use.

    Shark Injector Upgrade (from One File To Another)

    You may be able to upgrade the Shark Injector file to another version to better meet your tuning needs. Depending on the model we may have better tunes for things such as intakes, larger air sensors, camshafts, headers, and others. For a small fee the current Shark Injector tune can be removed and a new file added instead (the original Shark file you were using would no longer be available). To do this, we need the car restored to stock settings with the current Shark Injector and then returned to us (updating via USB is not yet available). Sharks that were not Restored to stock cannot be upgraded and the unit will be returned to you (at your expense). We also perform other work on the Shark Injector while it is here, including diagnostic tests and re-packaging with the most current instructions. The Shark that you get back is virtually new and ready to be reinstalled!

    To get started, review the catalog of current Shark Injector files for one that better matches your tuning spec.
    1. Enter the new tuning file in the form below. Include any other relevant information.
    2. Click the Update Price or Add To Cart button.
    3. Complete the online transaction with your address and payment information.
    4. A Turner Motorsport sales rep will contact you after your order has been submitted. Do not send in your Shark Injector until someone has contacted you with a reference number and return shipping address.

    Turn-around time for upgrades is typically the same day we receive it. UPS Ground is the normal return shipping method unless you specify faster shipping on your order. 

    Helpful Links:

    • Shark Injector File List - listing of all Shark Injector files by vehicle model. Select a file from this list to upgrade to.
    • Shipping Instructions - specific instructions for packaging and shipping. Also includes a contact form to include when you send back your Shark.
    • Emissions Waiver - some tunes require this emissions/smog waiver before we can program the new file to your Shark. These are noted in the catalog listing in the links above. Print and include this Waiver when you send in your Shark.

    E46 M3 Bosch Motorsport ECU Tune File

    An additional tune file to use with the plug & play Bosch Motorsport ECU in the E46 M3. When you buy the Bosch ECU from us a tuned file is included but we can also provide you with additional files (the Bosch ECU can hold up to three files, switchable from the Sport button on the center console). We can tune for specific modifications such as cams, headers, and even supercharger kits, and also fuel type, throttle, rev limits, or anything else that you need. Since the Bosch ECU is a true motorsport ECU, it is tuneable on its own using a laptop and the Bosch expansion harness. You can make your own files and changes on the fly. But if you did not purchase the expansion harness or want one of our pre-made dyno-tuned files, add this item to your cart. A Turner rep will be in touch to discuss your needs.

    Requires plug & play Bosch Motorsport ECU system.

    The M3 performance software was developed on the dyno to create maximum power and torque using premium 93+ octane fuel and revising the torque limiters in the ECU. The software makes changes to the ECU's maps and algorithms for fuel injection, ignition timing, VANOS and camshaft movement, and transitional fueling. We modify the maps for part throttle and full throttle so you get better response and more torque at all RPM. Choose between a stock or raised 8,100 RPM rev limit. The top speed limiter is removed.

    (Torque gain is significant between 3000-6000 rpm, with a max gain (biggest improvement) of 14 lb-ft rear wheel Torque @ 4340 rpm)

    This performance software was developed specifically for the factory M3 Euro headers and stock Euro cats. Early in our E46 software development we found that the Euro headers and cats made a significant torque gain over the US spec but special software was needed to get the most out of them and to address some of the differences (Euro EGT sensor is in a different spot). The factory Euro headers and cats remain the top choice for performance and OEM quality.
