VAST is pleased to announce its release of BMW N20, N26 engine calibrations for Stage 1 all the way through Stage 3 turbocharger upgrades and full bolt-ons and even E85 blends. For anything beyond Stage 1 tuning, please Contact Vast Performance for product details and a quote.
We recommend NGK 97506 spark plugs, gapped at .022" in addition to any tuning for your 4 cylinder turbocharged motor. Carbon cleaning is a secondary item to address in higher mileage vehicles past 60-80k miles.
Typical Stage 1 gains are 40-50hp/60ft-lbs of torque. Results may be even better with good bolt ons, quality fuel and no carbon buildup in the intake, etc.
We also recommend our BMW ZF 8HP 8-Speed Transmission Tuning to make the most of the power band of your engine. https://vastperformance.com/products/bmw-zf-8hp-8-speed-transmission-tuning.
We are able to tune all the way from the beginning of the N20/N26 with the early style, pneumatic wastewater turbocharger setup through the electronic turbo waste gate updates.
All of our in house tuning is done via the OBD port and it is not necessary to remove the engine computer although we may want to back up your computer image on the bench.
Our remote Engine and Transmission controller flash is an OBD port flash. If tuning remotely, there is a refundable deposit due when purchasing the tune.
