OBD2 Tune

Hey, I've been away from these forums for awhile, but it seems that recently both OE and EuroCharged are offering OBD2 tunes for the M278 engine which has me very interested. Who else? Has anyone actually done this yet?

Oh, thanks a lot. Just when I wasn’t interested in a tune... I will have to look into this.

Cool. Iíd like to know why you chose AMR as well and did the OBD tune cost the same as semding in the ECU?

I went with AMR because they seem to have a good reputation here and online and also they were the first ones to release the OBD flash tune.
I paid double what OE would have cost me and the price would be about $200 more than sending the ECU in since you gotta pay for the Mygenius device.

I purchased it during their sale so got a 12% off deal

I drove the car around yesterday quite a bit and maybe its placebo effect but i believe the power increase is there. My concern is everyone is telling me that the power should be night and day and i do not feel that much of a difference.

My other concern is that i also added the burble tune option and i am getting 0 burbles or pops. I currently have cat-less downpipes installed so the pops should be very much there.

Spoke to the staff at AMR and they suggested i do a hard reset of my ECU (which i did) and give it a few days to adapt to the tune so thats where i am now. Day 2 today and going to be driving it as much as i can.

I wonder if the tune just didn’t take. How can anyone be sure the new tune got applied properly? Does the MyGenius device provide detailed status, results or error codes as the tune is applied? I think if you are having trouble figuring it out, it’s probably not tuned.

Quick video of a new burble tune file flashed to the car

SKIP to :59 if you just want to hear the pops

The device simply tells you if its completed or not i dont believe it has the ability to verify the tune is written on the ECU but i could be wrong..

It will most likely work but you risk damaging your cats as they dont like gasoline very much

I do not. I have catless downpipes and instead of the resonator i have a H-Pipe installed.
