The BMW M2 has been the car that we have all been waiting for.  Yes there was the 1M and yes there was the M235I, but neither are the blistering insanity of what the BMW M2 is!  The twinpower turbocharged inline 6 cylinder engine puts out a massive 370hp with almost 465NM of torque.  Back in the 135I days if you wanted 400 horsepower, you spend about everything under the sun to get it!  The M2 engine really hammers down the torque with the addition of a overboost function adding another 35NM of torque at 4500rpm.  For those still wanting to keep it real, the car is available in a 6speed manual gearbox or an optional 7 speed dual clutch.  Lets face it, the 7 speed dual clutch will always be faster!  Running 0-60mph in just 4 seconds and the 1/4 mile at 12.5 seconds trapping 113mph, this 2 door coupe is H O T!  So how can you do more for it?

BMW has gotten very sophisticated in their anti tuning technology.  The days of connecting to a E92 M3 or a E60 M5 through the OBDII port and reading the data to enhance the vehicles software is over.  Most of these ECU’s must be removed from the vehicle, flashed in boot mode on the bench by bypassing or “patching” the security passwords.  Where some have resorted to cheap piggyback systems with trinkets and poor equipment, VR Tuned has continued to thrive in the German tuning box kit market.  Utilizing factory Bosch clips for a true plug and play device, weatherproof aluminum case with adjustable dial for octane, the VR Tuned piggyback is the leader in plug and play, warranty safe performance.

As tested by our European partner using 93 octane and in a dyno cell with proper cooling and airflow, the BMW M2 tuning box gained an impressive 52bhp over stock and a blistering 120NM of torque over stock.  This puts the M2 at 417bhp and 620NM or 431ft/lbs of torque.  We are talking M3/M4 killing territory.  The tuning box kit harness is VRT-121236-1 and takes about 15-20 minutes to install.  VR Tuned has sold hundreds of these tuning box applications worldwide.

With manufactures trying to increase fuel economy by adding forced induction to vehicles that previously had large displacement engines, the ability to tune them further is even more prevalent now. However there are 2 main issues with tuning these newer vehicles. The manufactures have gotten very particular about having their ECUs accessed to be tuned. These "anti tuning" features make it hard to read and write the ECU via the OBDII port. Some ECUs can be removed and flashed on the bench once the case is open. This is an immediate flag to the dealer which ultimately will void your power train warranty if a situation arose. This is where the VR Tuned Tuning Box Kits come into play over the competition.

Engineered for boosted cars, these vehicle specific plug and play kits are designed to easily be installed and uninstalled as needed. The harnesses feature OEM plugs that attach to necessary sensors where the pre-mapped tuning box gives your vehicle huge amount of performance gains. Unlike other "piggyback" solutions, these use high quality connections, wires, and casing that are designed to be engine mounted for longevity to the elements.

Each Tuning Box Kit has been engineered and tested to work in even the most extreme environments of altitude, temperature, and driving conditions.

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.

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.
