How to do an ECU Tune on the BMW M3 Competition F80
September 17, 2019
The BMW M3 is one of the most iconic performance cars of all time and it has been the benchmark for performance sedans for decades. The current F8X series cars offer more performance than any M3 before, but enthusiasts always want more. With BMWâs shift from naturally aspirated to turbocharged engines comes an increase in tune-ability.
With more vehicles using turbocharged engines, ECU tuning is becoming a very popular method of increasing power. With modern turbocharged engines, turning up the boost is incredibly easy, since boost control is entirely controlled by the ECU. Ford EcoBoost engines are well known for producing a massive amount of low-end torque with tuning, and the 3.5L EcoBoost under the hood of the Raptor is no different.

Mercedes-Benz is best known as a luxury automotive manufacturer, but they also produce some of the best high-performance cars on the market. The C63s, specifically, combines the best of a relatively small luxury sedan and an extremely high-performance engine.
When Hyundai launched the Genesis Coupe, they offered two engine options: a 2.0T turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.8L V6. In 2013, both engines received significant power increases, however, the 2.0T was still under 300hp, a number which Hyundai could have easily provided with a few modifications. Although Hyundai failed to give the 2.0T Genesis a decent amount of power, the turbocharged nature of this engine makes it easy to increase power.
