Cool, works for me. Love my x5 diesel, no desire to massively increase emissions just so i can brag about how less-slow my rig is.

Here’s something else for you coal-rollers to think about:
Back in the 80’s I drove a Mack truck equipped with one of the first real attempts to control the excess soot produced from over fuelling the engine when you floored it at an RPM too low for the engine to burn the fuel. They called it a “puff limiter” and it worked fairly well in that it did stop most of the coal rolling. The problem is that it definitely cut the power because it obviously just wasn’t getting the extra fuel. BUT there were two side-effects:
1) better fuel economy and
2) better engine life because you weren’t washing the oil off the cylinder bores.
This second point applies to gasoline powered cars too: a Holley 4 barrel will produce as much or more HP than the same engine with modern fuel injection, but the fuel injected engine will probably last longer because the cylinders aren’t getting washed by the surplus fuel from the big accelerator pumps etc.
