According to mountune, the kit has been “Tested and validated over thousands of miles and countless hours on the dyno for durability and performance”, it is suitable for the owners that are already running either m400R or m400X and offers power upgrades throughout the whole RPM range. Requirements include Upgraded intercooler, mTune handset, mountune full intake, 3″ inch exhaust, hardpipe and forged engine internals.
The m520 costs £5,974.99 (which is 10,682 aud or 6,532 euro) in the United Kingdom. Click here for more information.
