    • Another BMW B58 mobile engine flash tune app option - MG Flasher Android app by JR Auto Performance

      Never heard of JR Auto Performance out of Ontario, Canada or the MG Flasher app? Neither has BimmerBoost.com. That does not mean it is not a good option and frankly the more tuning competition the better especially on the B58 platform. So what exactly is the MG Flasher Android app?


      Here is a quick summary:

We are proud to say that we are among the first in the world to unlock the MG1 ECUs with our own solution/core software.

This will enhance your flashing experience as well as provides a safer environment.

      The tuning process has never been easier. Simply connect the mobile device to your OBD connector with the supported Wi-Fi adapter or K+DCAN cable and tune your BMW within minutes with the provided OTS maps or use custom option for flashing maps prepared by your tuner. There are different tuning stages available (OTS maps), outlined below which are offered to meet your specific driving needs!
      Sounds good, right?

      • OTS maps/ All OTS pack (subject to additional cost)
      • Custom flashing – flash custom maps prepared by your tuner
      • Logger - log real time data and plot it into graphs for troubleshooting and optimizing (subject to additional cost)
      • Diagnostic- Read and clear BMW specific DTC's
      • Reset various adaptations, restore coding
      • CVN number (Checksum Verification Number) along with flashing counter stays untouched. This means our software will be virtually invisible to dealer level diagnostic tools

      Various other custom options are available with each OTS map including:

      • Exhaust burbles
      • Cold start with cat heating delete (racing/off-road use only)
      • Speed limit removal
      • HP gauge and TQ gauge calibrated according to the power level
      • More in the future updates

      You can use either a D-can cable or OBD-II WiFi adapter.

      They have Stage I and Stage II OTS tunes:

      STAGE 1: + 69hp + 63ftlb / 85NM Torque (412hp 423ftlb / 573NM @ Crank)
      A great, entry level software flash designed for all stock components and 91 Octane or greater. This software is intended to be a step up from BMW Performance Software (MPPSK), which reduces the torque spikes, increases power and smooths out the overall powerband. You will notice an increase in responsiveness as well as drivability.

      Technical Information:
      Boost Pressure: 16 PSI (1.1 Bar)

      Options
      Exhaust Burble
      Cold Start Delete
      Display NBT HP/TQ gauges calibration

      STAGE 2: +99hp +118ftlb (442hp 478ftlb / 648NM @ Crank)
      For the spirited driver that wants the most out of their stock component vehicle. This software is intended to safely maximize your vehicle’s potential performance. The power curve has been delicately engineered to eliminate any dips in the overall powerband as well as maximizing delivery of that power throughout the entire RPM range. Designed to work with 93/94 Octane for best results.
      *Transmission Tuning Recommended* - See technical information for more.

      Technical Information:
      Boost Pressure: 19 PSI (1.3 Bar)

      Options

      It will be interesting to see if this app catches on with US members and to see some independent dyno results.
