This car specifically was otherwise stock!


We remote tune cars on the dyno throughout the whole world. If you are able to send us datalogs, then fine tuning is certainly an option!


Thank you for clarifying!


This is Alex from Evolve Automotive USA chiming in.
The stock intercooler on the R56 and F56 is no doubt a limiting factor in terms of consistent power delivery. We are amidst development of an intercooler upgrade that makes a HUGE difference in power delivery, temperature consistency, and cooling efficiency.


Thank you for contributing to the thread and sharing your knowledge!
So is the auto tune issue HP or TQ? I understand the torque issue but not HP. Is the tune limiting both or just HP or TQ? Thanks!

I saw an Australian car show on TV where they hooked up the windshield washer to misting jets mounted in front of the I/C. The fine spray of water mist on the I/C coils at speed and under boost reduced IAT dramatically. This resulted in increased power.
I'm thinking of using a spray bottle and spraying water mist on the I/C core when I dyno my car at the Dragon. That's the one weak point in dyno testing. No air being force into ducting of true CAI and very little air flow across the I/C core. Neither is conducive to making More Powah!
Back in the late 80' and early 90s I used two Ford Windstar windshield sprayers onto the Intercooler of my 1987 Mazda RX-& Turbo II ASP...they were hooked into the winshield washer reservoir and I filled it with rubbing alcohol...worked great

I have 2015 F56 S hatchback with JCW exhaust/tune kit but it's slight lacking on some power. Do you think I can use Evolve with JCW bluetooth activated tunes?

The bluetooth doesn't activate the tune, it opens a valve in your exhaust to bypass the muffler. If you do an ECU flash, it will overwrite the JCW tune. If you do a plug in box, (Dinan, JB, NM, etc) it will not.

Interesting.....


As a side note they did sell the F56 shop car they used for product development to move onto other platforms.
