2016 Volkswagen Golf R – APv3 calibration

Client contacted us to do a protune on this vehicle as he recently bought a APv3 from us.  Client added the necessary parts to be able to use the stage3 mapping that Cobb Tuning offers.

Intake, catted downpipe, catback exhaust and upgraded fmic.

APR stage1 DSG / reflash on the vehicle.

Ambient conditions on the day were: 78F, 72% hum. and 30.03 baro

First graph is the before and after the Protune with Dyno jet simulated numbers.

The above figure is the native Dyno Dynamics figure after the Protune.  Boost pressure during the calibration was 27psi tapering to 22psi at 7000 rpms.

There is still some more to be learned from this initial tune on this platform and we will be seeing this vehicle once again to see if we can extract a few more hp from the engine.  Special thanks to Mike for trusting in our tuning abilities.

2013 Scion FRS – Kraftwerks

On Saturday got a chance to calibrate another Scion FRS that was forced induced.  This vehicle had previously visited our shop on the later part of December to get a baseline done.  On that given day which the ambient conditions were in the 66F with 65% humidity.
The owner had just fitted the vehicle with a Kraftwerks supercharger set up.
No other mods were present besides the supercharger kit on this vehicle with a Automatic transmission.
On that given day the best number that came out was 214whp (with the Kraftwerks ROM) and it was tested in sports mode in 4th gear.

Fast forward to Sept. 16th with ambient conditions in the 97F, 52% & 30.10 baro, so a rather humid miserable day and the best that the vehicle managed to baseline line was 189whp @ 12psi.  Now that we got our baseline we plugged the EcuTek Protuning kit and proceeded to start from scratch with our own calibration to improve the performance from that Kraftwerks ROM file the car was using.

 

Needless to say that with movements in Fueling, timing advance and cam timing we managed to improve from the numbers on the tuning day and also surpass the numbers from the colder December day back in 2016.  Very happy with the numbers and can not wait to calibrate this car once again when the owner starts adding UEL header and exhaust components to free up some low end torque.

2013 Subaru WRX Hatch

It is always nice when you can provide a complete package to a client.  This was the case with this client, we supplied him the parts that he wanted for a good price.

Military discount was applied to this client as well.  We offer discounts to our brave military people and also any emergency personel.

With the parts in and awaiting for his arrival the day to drop the car off was finally here.

Before the vehicle was fitted with its upgraded parts we did a baseline to see what the vehicle output was.  At the time the car had only a Invidia cat back exhaust.

We count on a great experienced tech by the name of Zach for this job. Zach did not waste any time in putting in the Cobb intake and Invidia down pipe in this vehicle. Great turn around time, the client was able to get his car installed and flashed with its new APv3 stage 2 OTS calibration.

Next day it was time for the calibration as the Dyno Dynamics AWD was ready to do the work.  Car was tested to see what the power gains were not with the OTS stag2 map.  After that test was done it was time for the ProTune to see where the engine power was going to end up.  Well it did not dissapoint.
