Review & Install Video
Now the VMP REV-X that we are featuring in this video should appeal to the supercharged, S197, GT, or Boss 302 owners out there, who are after a premium tuning experience and don't mind spending a little bit more dough to get that. Now VMP will be providing three different tunes in addition to a single data log revision, if necessary for your blown or heavily modded set up along with getting the latest in the handheld tuning category the SCT REV-X here, which does boast all of the same features of that popular X4 device, but with the added benefit of this new Cloud based tuning, which by the way is an industry first. Now your price point will be right around $700 bucks, and it is gonna get a simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter from me when it comes time to load these tunes to your ride. So for those who aren't aware, VMP Performance will be one of your premium tuning options not just on this site but in the Mustang community period. The team at VMP has worked very hard over the years to not only offer solid, naturally aspirated tunes for light modifications but also forced induction stuff as well, and they are one of the leaders in TVS tuning, and I'm speaking from experience on that one guys. I've tuned my Roush Blown GT with absolutely fantastic results but let's get to the fun stuff, shall we? Let's show you some dyno numbers using a VMP tune on a Roush Blown Coyote GT and hey, we're gonna show you my car for reference here because why not. Now we're gonna pull some older baseline or stock numbers and compare them to my new supercharged setup, just to give you guys a better idea of what may be possible with your own Coyote at home. So for reference sake, your average baseline or stock run with these 6-speed Coyote cars tends to give you somewhere around 365 horsepower and 343-pound feet of torque to the real wheels. With the 93 octane VMP tune on my Roush charged GT, the car is now making a whopping 643 horsepower and 564-pound feet of torque to the real wheels. Guys that's good for peak gains of 278 horsepower and 221-pound feet of torque over those baseline numbers and absolutely massive gains under the curve. All right guys big time disclaimer here, now obviously cars and dynos will be different, your conditions will obviously be different, mods and boost levels will be different, so your results ultimately might vary, but this is just to give you guys a better idea of my experience with the VMP tuning on my Roush charged GT and honestly I couldn't be happier with the car. The startup tunes I received were extremely polished with no idling or running issues, and only minor revisions were needed. But as I pointed out earlier this package does include three different custom tunes from VMP along with that single data log revision, if needed. Now VMP does offer slightly more in depth tunes for things like ED5 or ethanol, which I actually took advantage of, and my feelings were pretty much exactly the same as at 93 octane tune. Great running car and with even more power, but let's touch on the REV-X device here quickly because there is some really cool things to talk about. Now on the surface, this thing will be very similar to the X4 in regards to just basic features and overall operation but with one big exception and that is this new Cloud based tuning. And what does this mean? Well, instead of needing a laptop like you usually do to receive these tunes from VMP, instead you're just gonna simply connect your REV-X device to a wifi signal. It's gonna prompt you to download these tunes from this magical tuning Cloud, and that's pretty much it. But in all seriousness guys, it is nice for a few different reasons. First and foremost, it is going to speed up the process of loading these tunes to your device in addition to not needing any computer to get the tune and get up and running messing with emails all that other stuff. And if you're a Mac owner, well this is a total game changer for you here because most tuners aren't gonna be Apple compatible. But aside from this Cloud based tuning feature, expect those on screen gauges and data logging. This thing is capable of reading and displaying up to eight different values at one time including air fuel ratio, intake air temperature, boost coolant temp, ignition timing just to name a few. Now even though the case is slightly different, the overall dimensions haven't really changed all that much. It's still roughly the same size as most smart phones and as you can see you're looking at a complete three-inch full-color LCD screen. It is configurable or viewable in both portrait, which is gonna be your straight up and down mode, or a landscape mode which will just be turning this thing horizontal. Now on the topic of displaying this device, one thing that I thought was really cool is that this little piece in the back here is actually magnetic so if you have one of those cell phone holders out there that is magnet based, it would be a great way to display this device at all times, everyday driving things like that, and it's gonna make it easier to remove and store in the glovebox or the console, if and when needed. But aside from the Cloud based tuning and all that other good stuff, you can also expect your wifi capabilities allowing you to not only download those tunes from the Cloud like we talked about earlier, but it's also gonna allow you to download any future firmware updates without the need for the computer, and even though you will be only receiving three custom tunes from the guys over at VMP, the REV-X does have the capability to hold ten different tunes at one time. Now in addition to that, the REV-X will be able to read and clear those diagnostic trouble codes in addition to returning the car to stock if you ever wanted to or needed to during your time of ownership. The REV-X does include both the USB cable if you did want to connect this thing to your laptop in addition to that OBD2 cable as well that will be used to connect that device to your ride. And speaking of connecting this thing to your ride, let's quickly touch on the install here using the REV-X device, and it's pretty straight forward guys so one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe thirty minutes of your time to get up and running for the very first time. I do recommend following the included instructions with the REV-X tuner for the initial startup, but the basic idea is after you get the tunes onto your device you're gonna wanna plug this thing into your OBD2 port and wait for it to power on. Now you can navigate to the programmed vehicle tab and select the tune you wish to upload. Follow the onscreen instructions, and your installation is complete. Again very simple stuff guys. So wrapping this one up here gang, if you have a TVS powered Coyote, VMP is gonna be one of your best options in the aftermarket and you can grab your VMP loaded REV-X right here at americanmuscle.com.
