Help beating a BMW 335d!!

My buddy just got a 335d.. Basically a 335i with a diesel. We're ginna race and I wanna make sure he knows his place. But I can't get my tuner to update to 300hd tune.. Or anything for that matter. I have windows7 and I've downloaded the tunes and dragged and dropped them into the mini max sd. Is that right? Cause I can't get anything to work

you have to "extract all" the files before you drag them onto the sd.

If you get it to where you can get your tunes to load right you will be fine. You wont blow your truck up. I have spartan and i use the 310 as my DD and race once in awhile. I dont see why you dont run him stock or whatever tune you have now. Also what other mods do you have?

Post results. Be interesting to see if you will take it. I have both, never raced only driven individually. I have an opinion I'll keep to myself.

Man, the 335 is freaken fast. I have to say I don't know about the 335d if it's the same as the i (gas). When I put it on Hot with H&S on my truck, I feel like its much stronger, then later I run down to the grocery store and I think forget it! This car moves. Really, probably to about 45-50 the Super duty(with traction) is crazy. I feel the same about the BMW at about 35-40. It really is a toss up but I think the BMW might be faster even though I don't want it to be- just by feel.

Yeah I see what you're saying. The diesel has 260hp and 425 torque. I might be making twice the hp and three times the torque but I way twice as much do it'll be a good race I think.. I'm getting exited!!! He IS getting a delete and tuner though later:/
