I got incredibly busy with work, pretty much spent the whole summer in Texas on a project and didnt get much time at home.
What time I had was absorbed with local projects, wasnít still convinced on what tune I wanted, what type I wanted and how much money I wanted to spend.
Was getting close to pulling the trigger on something almost 3mos ago when a truck ran over a 1/3 sheet of plywood 1/2Ē thick.... @70mph on the freeway.
It was like the matrix in slow motion coming at me.
It pretty much exploded when it hit my X.

It hit hard enough to destroy the front bumper completely and dent the steel impact pretty good, when I pulled over there was a chunk of plywood sticking out the front of my bumper, not a little piece either!
$12k in damage. $1500 if it was a toyota🤣
Anyways, its still currently at a Certifed BMW bodyshop waiting on the third bumper to show up... so hasn't been much time to think about doing anything.

In the meantime Iíve been following both VF-engineering and AA on instagram and talking with people who have had or have their tunes.
Watching their content etc.
Also just paying attention to prices on downpipes, fitment etc.
Talked to a guy whos made some youtube videos with tunes and done installs.

I should be getting my car back next week... if not itíll be the third time Iíve heard that.
😑

VF had a Black Friday sale with 20% off HEX tunes and I couldnt resist.
I grabed the stage 2 tune for the price of the stage 1.
Heres the cool part!
If you buy the stage 2 you also get stage 1 if you download them both.
That was a selling point for me.
I had read that before digging around, VF confirmed it.
So ill acctualy get to see/feel the difference.
From stock to stage 1 to mod stage 1 and stage 2.

Just thought I would throw out there where Iíve gone with it.
My local tracks are closed until spring so I am going to find the best standalone for 0-60 and qurter.
Ill report back what I think of the tune when I am done.
Anyone have suggestions on a standalone performance meter?

VF makes software and superchargers for supercars, and it looks like they really take care of their customers.
Not to mention they do some damn cool stuff!
I had an issue with my order, it was fixed right away and communication was super quick even through email.

The best part is I can run stage 1 while deciding on the down pipes and waiting for the day I have time to do my exhaust mods.
I am thinking I am going to remove the resonators, add an X-pipe and mod the factory muffler.
Unless I can get an unbeatable deal on a cat back after market I donít see any reason to spend that type of money.
Besides it sounds more fun to mod the factory stuff on the cheap and get the same results.

Hopefully Iíll report back here with stock vs stage 1 numbers next weekend.
🍻

Purchased the Turnersports stage 1 tune. Going to send a file of current stock tune to them this week. They say they will send me the stage 1 tune in about 24 hours. Hope to have it installed by this weekend.

I finally got to putting the stage 1 on and immediately pulled it off the next day, the exhaust flaps didnít open on cold start, it smelled rich, I had zero improvement on my 0-60. It felt as though It was a bit faster then stock on the freeway at WOT. Also it seemed like there was a lot of lag when I floored it from a stop.
I wasnít going to run the risk with everything else acting strange.
Contact VF through my original tech emails and had to put my car back in the shop because the just replaced aux pump was toast and had a small coolant leak.
Then back to the body shop because the hood looked like crap and my insurance originally denied it, got a new hood and new paint... about the only good thing is Iíve kept miles off the car. 🤦*♂️
I finally just called VF, resent the stock file... that was mid april.
Sent them a email last week and still havenít got anything back, Iíve been traveling a lot so I havenít pressed the issue (currently on the road now) plus I had to do front rotors and pads, got the brakenetik ones... so far so good with those.
Iíll call VF this week and see whats up, so far Iíve been pretty dissatisfied.
Bcredliner do you have the draggy app? Itís what I used for comparison.

Thanks for your feedback. Awaiting to see how it goes once you get the file back from VF.

The tune I purchased is from Turner. They state it delivers 150HP and 198TQ. I have the exhaust flaps wired open. Yes, I can measure 0-60 1/8 and quarter mile.
