BMW Z8 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).

Product Details

Unlock LOADS of torque and horsepower in all gears, especially 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
Choose between 91 and 93 octane
Quicker throttle response in both Sport and non-Sport modes
Stock 7000 or Raised 7400 rev limit
Top Speed Limiter Removed
Choice of several options to make driving your M5 more enjoyable

Performance software is a must-have upgrade on your E39 M5 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 M5 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. The stock software artificially limits torque output, especially in the first three gears. We raised the torque limiters in all gears so there is more torque available. You will see an immediate difference as soon as you leave your driveway! Choose between a stock 7,000 or raised 7,400 RPM rev limit. The top speed limiter is removed. By fine tuning these maps we've been able to improve the S62 engine beyond what BMW did by making more power and torque and a smoother-running engine. 

Gains of 23 hp at 6100 rpm and 19 lb/ft torque at 5000 rpm!!!
We used several E39 M5s on our dyno to establish what the average/typical power numbers are. The dyno charts on the right are from the same car - a 2003 E39 M5 that was already equipped with intakes, mufflers, and running 93 octane. For our Shark Injector dynos we made baseline runs with the stock software and then runs in 3rd gear and 4th gear. The only changes to the car was the Shark Injector software. Why did we post dyno runs in different gears? The 3rd gear run shows the torque gain with the new torque limiters in the software. The 4th gear run is posted to be consistent with the industry-standard of dyno-ing cars in 4th gear. Note: comparing dyno results and wheel horsepower numbers from one shop to another is not advised. What really matters is the gain from stock to modified from the same car on the same dyno.


The Shark Injector plugs into the diagnostic port inside the E39 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. 

Product Options
Octane: Choose either 91 or 93 minimum octane. For 93 we can be more aggressive with the timing and get more power. But you must have 93+ octane available, using the 93 version with anything less is not recommended. 
Throttle Setting: Choose an aggressive throttle response or a smoother, linear setting. The Shark enhanced throttle will be much quicker and more in line with the Motorsport inspiration of the M5. The Euro throttle is more linear in response and smoother than the stock US or Shark throttle. The Euro throttle is also known as the 'M5Board tune'. Our customers are split 50/50 so there is no "best throttle" mapping - it's personal preference. 
Rev Limit: Choose a stock 7,000 RPM or raised 7,400 RPM rev limit. The raised rev limit is great for track or autocross where you can stay in gear longer and avoid untimely upshifts. The stock rev limit is for the non-track customer who wants all of the other benefits without the need to rev beyond the stock setting. 
DSC/Sport Mode: This option will make Sport Mode active only when DSC is turned off. The Sport Mode button is disabled altogether so the only way to get Sport is to disable DSC. 
Note: not all combinations of product options are available. We will contact you if there is a conflict.

RUFM5: "The 93 RACE edition Shark has been very solid in my experience. The air/fuel ratios and power are very smooth and optimal. I also have a wideband gauge and OBD computer to monitor car vitals."
britm3: "Overall, the car feels much sharper in sport and non-sport, the 3rd gear pull really being the highlight for me."
M5CCIE: "Got my 91 octane version installed today. It is worth it's price and much more in my opinion. The car feels much more "eager" and responsive."
Carbon01: "I did the 91Octane TMS/Conforti Shark update last week. I was going to dyno before and after, but didn't have the patience once it arrived. I can say that there is a noticeable difference in 1st thru 3rd. It seems a little more responsive in the higher gears, but not drastic. Transtion from light throttle to full throttle is greatly improved, general drivability is a little better all around and noticeably nicer in Sport."
gt40mki: "I'm glad I bought it-worth every penny-and I'd re-buy again in a heartbeat."
Stika: "Installed the Shark on Friday. I gotta say, the Beast is DEFINITELY quicker. Much stronger on the low end. The drivabilty is much better across the board, at any speed, in any gear. I got the street version with Sport button memory, very nice feature. Don't know what else to add to what has been said already. Worth the purchase to me, I'm very pleased."

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.

Performance software is a must-have upgrade on your E39 M5 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 M5 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. The stock software artificially limits torque output, especially in the first three gears. We raised the torque limiters in all gears so there is more torque available. You will see an immediate difference as soon as you leave your driveway! Choose between a stock 7,000 or raised 7,400 RPM rev limit. The top speed limiter is removed. By fine tuning these maps we've been able to improve the S62 engine beyond what BMW did by making more power and torque and a smoother-running engine.

4th Gear Dyno Chart3rd Gear Dyno ChartGains of 23 hp @ 6100 rpm and 19 lb/ft torque @ 5000 rpm!!!
We used several E39 M5s on our dyno to establish what the average/typical power numbers are. The dyno charts on the right are from the same car - a 2003 E39 M5 that was already equipped with intakes, mufflers, and running 93 octane. For our Shark Injector dynos we made baseline runs with the stock software and then runs in 3rd gear and 4th gear. The only changes to the car was the Shark Injector software. Why did we post dyno runs in different gears? The 3rd gear run shows the torque gain with the new torque limiters in the software. The 4th gear run is posted to be consistent with the industry-standard of dyno-ing cars in 4th gear. Note: comparing dyno results and wheel horsepower numbers from one shop to another is not advised. What really matters is the gain from stock to modified from the same car on the same dyno.

* This Shark Injector will disable the flow output of the Secondary Air Injection system (SAI), an infamous flaw that affects all M5s. This software will prevent fault codes and check engine lights due to blockages of the SAI system due to carbon build-up. One of the causes of SAI faults is when the ECU detects low output from the air pump. The Shark software will no longer monitor the output of the pump, therefore the fault will never occur. This software does not disable the air pump altogether (necessary to preserve your catalytic converters) and does not "fix" exisiting SAI performance (you may still need a new air pump). For more information on the M5 SAI system, read our E39 M5 SAI carbon build-up page by clicking here.

RUFM5: "The 93 RACE edition Shark has been very solid in my experience. The air/fuel ratios and power are very smooth and optimal. I also have a wideband gauge and OBD computer to monitor car vitals."
britm3: "Overall, the car feels much sharper in sport and non-sport, the 3rd gear pull really being the highlight for me."
M5CCIE: "Got my 91 octane version installed today. It is worth it's price and much more in my opinion. The car feels much more "eager" and responsive."
Carbon01: "I did the 91Octane TMS/Conforti Shark update last week. I was going to dyno before and after, but didn't have the patience once it arrived. I can say that there is a noticeable difference in 1st thru 3rd. It seems a little more responsive in the higher gears, but not drastic. Transtion from light throttle to full throttle is greatly improved, general drivability is a little better all around and noticeably nicer in Sport."
gt40mki: "I'm glad I bought it-worth every penny-and I'd re-buy again in a heartbeat."
Stika: "Installed the Shark on Friday. I gotta say, the Beast is DEFINITELY quicker. Much stronger on the low end. The drivabilty is much better across the board, at any speed, in any gear. I got the street version with Sport button memory, very nice feature. Don't know what else to add to what has been said already. Worth the purchase to me, I'm very pleased."

If you're planning on using the Shark Injector to add performance engine software to your BMW, a battery charger such as this one is required. The charger supplements the vehicle battery and provides uninterrupted power during the flashing process. This charger comes with a 20A boost mode for 30 minutes which should be enough time to complete the Shark Injector installation. Other chargers with manual power and timer controls are also acceptable (most shops will have a suitable charger for flashing vehicles).
