Alpine | M3/M4 F8X Motor Tuning - Full OBDII Flashing OEM Like

Alpine | M3/M4 F8X Motor Tuning
Full OBDII Flashing OEM Like





I am happy to announce the release of OBDII flashing at responsible pricing. Your vehicle will be tuned with the latest software and you can select from any of our multiple maps at no additional charge for the life of your vehicle. For example, if you decide to start with our Stage .5 and a year, a week, or an hour down the line you like to try our stage 2 you can request the stage 2 file at no extra cost to you and flash it in with your laptop in 30minutes or less. Returning to stock with no tamper codes in 10-30minutes.

Stages .5 to stage 2 are OEM like to deliver the finest acceleration and safety. Our GTS like Stage 2 shoots straight as an arrow. No jerky throttle, easy for every day driving and power when you need it. One of the largest challenges with some turbo tuned cars is driving through a small parking lot, the throttle is almost uncontrollable, this is not a problem with any of our stage tunes.

*As always all of our purchases include free remote live assistance. The program is simple to use, but many of us get nervous when working on our vehicles. If you wish to have us assist you in the flashing process from start to finish, or want us to do the entire process for you on your computer it is at no additional cost. You will need internet access at the vehicle on your laptop and we will remote in and help! Mac & Windows Compatibility/Support.

Believe it or not from stock m3/4 to GTS M4 all run the same boost levels, so even with the GTS+ like tune you are only seeing a 5PSI increase over stock. Some tuners are increasing power by mostly increasing boost up to 30PSI+ (stock is 19-20PSI about.) Unless you want the boost turned up more then 8PSI and your spark plugs are not too old you will not need to change your spark plugs.

I just had the car flashed tuned by Alex, and all I can say is wow!

Little background I have had two different flash tunes (Bench Flash) from very reputable tuning companies, and neither have the drivability or the feel as the tune Alex put on my car. I could not be happier and have fallen back in love with my M4 all over again.

Highly recommend this tune!

Thank you Alex, for taking so much time and explaining all the options and following up to make sure that I was completely satisfied.

Mods on my car: Akra evo exhaust, Eventuri intakes, GTS: DCT/MDM/DIF/Steering.

I just got the Stage 2 tune from Alex.

I'm speechless. This car is entirely different.

I..just...can't...put it into words how much faster it is. I would love to see actual dyno numbers / performance numbers of the difference. I'm just talking about the butt dyno. I'm sure the difference is absolutely immense.

So I have from Alex

- Stage 2 Tune
- GTS DCT
- GTS Steering
- GTS Diff
- Euro MDM

I have no other performance mods (besides springs if you consider those performance related).

I can't wait to get it out on the track at Laguna Seca!

Oh..and the Burble/Overrun. Excellent.

Gotcha. The reason why I'm asking is because I already have colder plugs installed (jb4 map2). If I can run gts+ without changing back to oem plugs I'll jump on it right away.

How would this be if it is being added to a car with ZCP? Also I don't see if this would effect warranty just as a precaution, I kind of want to know. Thanks.

The flash counter is left untouched and you can return to stock at anytime, it shouldn't be a problem.
