The 235 horsepower kit requires improvements to the airflow, fuel delivery, boost requirement, and of course ECU tuning. To achieve the full 235HP or 181rwhp on our Mustang Dyno, we tested this vehicle using 100 octane. 100 octane is pretty standard race fuel that some love to run out in the desert and races. VR Tuned has developed this ECU Tuning to provide safe AFR in the 12.0-12.3 range to deliver maximum power while keeping the stock knock sensors happy. Superior to what some call a "Stage 4WRI", the entire ECU tune and testing was done here at our Arizona facility on the Mustang Dyno. As you can see from the dyno chart, we have 3 options which are all included in this tune purchase. The 235hp requires all the parts recommended and using 100 octane fuel. We have a slightly tamer file that runs 18.5psi of boost with the stock intercooler and 100 octane. This file makes 177rwhp which is equivalent to 230hp. FInally we have a 91 octane pump gas file which uses the larger Agency Power intercooler making 17psi of boost producing 172rwhp which is equivalent to 225hp.
Some additional testing with our PerformanceBox GPS data system shows very improved 0-60 times. PerformanceBox systems are used as the standard in testing for most high performance cars including that of DragTimes.com. The stock Can-Am X3 did a 0-60mph on the big horn ties at 5.7 seconds. With the 235HP kit installed, we shaved off 1.2 seconds doing a 0-60mph run in just 4.5 seconds. This is almost as quick as a Ferrari F430 or Lamborghini Gallardo!
***Note - This tune REQUIRES our recommended mods. Without these mods we cannot guarantee performance or safety***

VRTuned.com is the off shoot of globally known, high performance retail parts specialists, Vivid Racing. Vivid Racing has been in business since 2001 and has worked with customers all over the world. In 2005, Vivid Racing got started in the Porsche market with their 2000 Porsche 996 Carrera. In addition to building this project car with selected vendor partners, Vivid Racing also began manufacturing products through it's sister company Agency Power. Having had success in the popular tuning chassis' such as the Subaru WRX STI, Mitsubishi EVO, and BMW M3, this was a natural progression of expansion in our repertoire of vehicles. As the tuning market boomed extensively in the early 2000's, Vivid Racing established a very strong prescence online and throughout vehicle communities. When the recession came, Vivid Racing continued to grow and focus on the development of it's products, distribution network, and most importantly, its customers. The diversity of vehicle products and services has allowed Vivid Racing to continue to strive for excellence while maintaining exceptional growth. ECU tuning has always been an extremely important part of modifying and building vehicles. This is essentially the glue that brings the performance out of aftermarket products and packages. With this next stage in the companies footprint, VRTuned.com was proudly launched in January 2014.
As the tuning industries tools became more accessible, so has the ability to partner and work with individuals to offer a unique service with added value. Working with several tuning companies over the years, we have experienced the upsides and downsides of the ECU tuning world. As it is our mission to offer unparallelled customer service and support, it is equally important to offer a great product that is tested, convenient to use, and priced within reason for the current demographic. With a Mustang All Wheel Drive Dynamometer in-house at our Gilbert, Arizona facility, we have spent countless hours testing tuned files, the affects of different vehicle modifications, and learning how vehicles react to our changes. But most importantly, our product confidence comes in that we have owned these vehicles, daily driven these vehicles, raced these vehicles, and understand what the consumer is looking for.
