ECU Flash Options:

  • Vmax Off - This is an increase or reduction of the maximum speed limit.
  • Race Exhaust - This option is for those running full race exhaust systems.
  • Pops & Bangs - Pops and bangs (burble tune) is the result of an ignition delay which creates an exhaust detonation when the throttle pedal is released. Caution, this process must only be used on vehicles with a full race exhaust. This may affect long term engine reliability.

If you install other parts on the vehicle that cause check engine lights when the car is flashed back to stock, you will need to address those mechanical parts to meet your local or state requirements.

What is VR Tuned?

VR Tuned ( is the offshoot of globally known, high-performance retail parts specialists, Vivid Racing. VR Tuned products include everything you need from booster pedals, ECU flashes, and gearbox tuning to tuning accessories and complete tuning box kits.

Having had success in popular tuning chassis' such as the Subaru WRX STI, Mitsubishi EVO, and BMW M3, this was a natural progression of expansion in VR's repertoire of vehicles. As the tuning market boomed extensively in the early 2000s, Vivid Racing established a very strong presence online and throughout vehicle communities.

Our Tuning Expertise

As the tuning industry's tools became more accessible, so has the ability to partner and work with individuals to offer a unique service with added value.

With a Mustang All-Wheel-Drive Dynamometer in-house at our Gilbert, Arizona facility, we have spent countless hours testing tuned files, the effects of different vehicle modifications, and learning how vehicles react to these 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. Our YouTube channel also features a host of videos showcasing our ECU and tuning products with before and after results as well as drive-by videos to demonstrate just how much more power and performance you can gain.
