    ♛ HEX Tuning ♛ Pre-release (Unofficial) Stage ONE Software (Dyno Content)




    We'll just leave this right here ...

    Vehicle: 2017 BMW 340i
    Software: HEX Tuning - Stage ONE - 91 Octane
    Dyno: Mustang AWD-500-SE


    Click here to enlarge



    As we get closer to official release we'll post additional details
    in regards to pricing, flashing process, and advertised gains for
    both Stage ONE and Stage TWO variants.




    For those of you who may not be familiar VF Engineering and
    our HEX Tuning software brand; All of our s/w development,
    testing, validation, and measuring is done entirely in-house
    at our Anaheim, California.


    The bulk of our initial testing is a mix of controlled dyno testing
    in-house, as well as road and track testing for drivability and
    endurance. Our goal is never based on targeting peak power,
    but rather to find what we determine to be the equilibrium
    between area under the curve and reliability on traditional
    pump fuel.





    For those of you who are contemplating ECU Software as one
    of your first performance upgrades, you're definitely going to
    want to 'Stay Tuned' for more details.






    NOTE: We are still looking for a couple local Southern, CA
    owners for validation and review once our development cycle
    is complete. Those customers will receive an initial discount
    on the product as well as FREE before and after dynos.


    The validation process is based on dyno testing multiple cars
    on our in-house DynoJet dynamometer so that we can then
    release the official numbers based on those averages.

    @VF-Engineering could we get a non-photobucket graph?

    Preliminary VF-Engineering B58 tuning results - 2017 BMW F30 340i with Stage 1 Hex Tuning software picks up +69 whp

    Consider this a preview of B58 tuning capability from VF-Engineering as this is not the official release. They are still tweaking their software but the Stage 1 HEX Tuning results are quite promising. Just look at what VF-Engineering got out of this 2017 BMW F30 340i on their Mustang dyno.

    Vehicle: 2017 BMW 340i
    Software: HEX Tuning - Stage ONE - 91 Octane
    Dyno: Mustang AWD-500-SE

    Keep in mind these numbers are on 91 octane pump fuel with the software tune only:

    At 2900 rpm they pick up ~100 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. There are gains throughout the entire curve until redline and there is not some huge torque spike that then levels off. Just solid, consistent gains.

    The B58 is not a revver (that is what the upcoming S58 is for) but notice it keeps making power until the end of the pull. At 6000 rpm there is roughly ~50 more wheel horsepower when tuned.

    Peak horsepower increases by 69 at the wheels to 365. Peak torque rises by 88 lb-ft at the wheels. For early results the numbers are looking very good.

    More from VF-Engineering:

    As we get closer to official release we'll post additional details
    in regards to pricing, flashing process, and advertised gains for
    both Stage ONE and Stage TWO variants.

    Oh well, too bad it is not a Mustang dynamometer. Most developers, or at least some I know, give a full tune and necessary apparatus to a development customer. The dynamometer readings are a byproduct of the tune development.

    I was hoping the tune only B58B30M0 would exceed a tune only N54B30T0 output.

    We know what the B58B30O1 will do, more or less.

    I may have misread your post,... but the plot above is indeed from a
    Mustang (AWD-500-SE), tested in all-wheel-drive mode with load.

    We also have an in-house DynoJet 2WD dyno, but have not yet posted
    any of those results publicly.



    We do the bulk of our development and testing on the Mustang as that
    is essentially our "workhorse". The DynoJet is used for final measuring
    and validation, and has become equally essential to our process since
    it seems that "DynoJet numbers" have become the benchmark which
    all others are measured against.



    The value though which is the most significant are delta gains, and not
    peak gains/values. As a tuner who has been been in the performance
    game for over 20 years now ... if we had it our way ... performance
    gains would only be advertised as delta values, and peak numbers
    would be entirely irrelevant.

    At the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is the margin
    of improvement over the stock values. Nothing else is as important.

    Why? I honestly prefer Mustang numbers and graphs as long as nobody messes with the settings.

    VF has a Dynojet in-house too. You'll get both.

    Here are some official DynoJet results for our HEX Tuning - Stage ONE.

    Based on the average results from the last few cars we've had in-house
    for development/testing/validation, we are looking at advertised gains of;
    +65 - 75 Wheel Horsepower
    +85-105 Wheel Torque

    (on CA 91 Octane)
    Click here to enlarge

    As you can see, and as we've discussed in previous threads, the delta gains
    are VERY similar between the Mustang and DynoJet even though the
    peak values for the DynoJet are noticeably higher.


    Mustang - Delta Gains: 69 whp / 87 wtq
    DynoJet - Delta Gains: 67 whp / 99 wtq

    (both of which fall right in between our advertised gains!)


    Mustang - Peak Power: 365whp / 413wtq
    DynoJet - Peak Power: 373whp / 433wtq

    (which is the reason why the Mustang is known as the "heart breaker")



    The slightly lower torque gains on the Mustang can be directly attributed
    to the higher amount of load, running in "linked, 4-wheel-drive mode".


    Of course most people would prefer to boast about having the higher
    peak wheel HP numbers from the DynoJet, than the more modest
    peak figures from the Mustang; but as demonstrated above, the
    product itself is only responsible for delivering the advertised gains and
    not the peak values produced by the machine.


    In either case these are very impressive gains for the B58.

    Most importantly, it does not infringe on the limitations of the high
    pressure fuel pump when using unleaded based fuels.


    And in typical HEX Tuning fashion, we can guarantee the results of our
    advertised gains (within reasonable margins for conditional variables)
    regardless of which machine it's tested on, with no excuses!
