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  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***

What are the benefits of VR Tuned?

  • #1 priority is our customer service to you!
  • Our tuning is used worldwide. 
  • Basic bolt-on performance parts will not require a retune of your ECU. Other efficiency parts such as colder spark plugs, boost tubes, or diverter valves are not required but can help performance.  The ECU will adapt to these changes.
  • We can tune cars worldwide including JDM, EU, Australian, and USA cars for different types of octane or environments.
  • We do not lock, "pot", or keep control of your ECU.  If you decide to take it to another tuner for an upgrade, all flashing ability is retained.

How to Flash Your ECU?

  • Order our OBDII Flash cable to be able to flash between a stock and your tuned file.  It also features a Diagnostic tool.  See Instructions Here
  • We can bench flash your ECU. To bench flash the ECU, you must remove it from your vehicle and send it to us.  Once we receive the ECU, we will prepare the tune file and then overnight it back to you for reinstallation. We do not solder or modify the ECU board at all. All ECU tuning is done via bungy probes that have a needle tip to provide an electrical connection.
  • Bring your vehicle or ECU to our Arizona facility where we can do the ECU Upgrade here.
