Review & Installation Video

Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my detailed review and dyno test of the VMP X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner, loaded with 3 custom VMP tunes, available for your 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT. So the VMP tunes are definitely going to be more of a premium tuning option available here at AM, with a focus on refined drivability. That's going to be the big separating factor here, guys. Now, VMP tunes are really going to shine with the more heavily modded setups, so your full bolt-on cars, nitrous applications, forced induction, things like that, where VMP has really earned their reputation in the Mustang community. That being said, this is still going to be an awesome option for stock to lightly modded setups, for guys at home who might be more familiar with the VMP name, and doesn't mind spending a few bucks more compared to some other tuning options here on the site. Now before I start breaking down what separates the VMP tunes from some of your other options here on the site, along with breaking down some of the features with the X4 device, let's get to the thing you guys all want to see, and that is the dyno numbers. Now we already grabbed our baseline run using our 2011 automatic GT behind me earlier today, so we reran the car with the 93 Octane VMP tune uploaded, and here are the results. Baseline run using our 2011 automatic GT gave us 342 horsepower and 323 pound feet of torque at the rear wheels. With the 93 Octane VMP tune uploaded, the car is now making 354 horsepower and 350 pound feet of torque. That's good for a peak gain of 12 horsepower over those baseline numbers, and gains of as much as 24 horsepower and 39 pound feet of torque under the curve. Breaking down these VMP numbers a little further here guys, here's what you need to keep in mind. Yes, this is an automatic car, so these numbers might seem a little lower than usual, stick cars will definitely see higher numbers, but overall the car picked up a ton of horsepower and a ton of torque down low, basically between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm, you're seeing huge gains underneath the curve, and that's going to be your main operating range when it comes to driving the car everyday, red light to red light, that's the power increase you're really going to feel. Now of course you did pick up a little bit up top as well, but again, those big gains are down low, and that's pretty solid overall. So now that you know a little bit more about the numbers, let's talk about the VMP tune in depth. So let's quickly address why you might want to upgrade your tune in the first place. Now the factory calibration in the '11 to '14 cars are definitely geared toward the masses, with comfort and fuel economy often times taking precedent over power. So when owners start looking for a little bit more power, an aftermarket or custom tune is definitely a great place to start. As we saw in our dyno jet, the car, no other mods changed, picked up a ton of power and torque, with the tune by itself, in addition to totally transforming how the car behaved. You're going to see improved throttle response, increased low-end torque, snappier shifts with our automatic, and improved drivability. And as the modding bug really starts to set in, as it often times does with a lot of us, that aftermarket or custom tune becomes essential, especially as those more involved modifications start finding their way onto your car. This includes those long-tube headers, larger cold-air intakes, aftermarket intake manifolds, nitrous applications again, or forced induction, any of these things, an aftermarket tune is a must. So why is the VMP tune going to be a more premium option here on the site? Well they have been around in the tuning industry for quite some time, and over that time they've of course really developed their power, as we witnessed with our dyno results, but they've also spent a really good amount of time nailing their drivability, and that's going to be the big separating factor when choosing a VMP tune over maybe some of the other options here on the site. Now very smooth throttle response, no surging, no idling issues, no stalling, things like that. Basically driving around town, the car's going to offer a great driving experience, no matter what your modifications. Now with our automatic equipped car, the shifts again were firm, they were sporty, without any drama whatsoever. You are going to be receiving three custom tunes written directly by VMP, ordered through us here at AmericanMuscle.com, a low, medium, and high octane tune, depending on what kind of fuel you guys have available in your area. Now that low octane tune's going to deliver some additional benefits over your factory calibration, namely a little bit more power, some improved drivability, but it's not going to be as aggressive as the 93 octane or high octane tune, because that will typically utilize a little bit more ignition timing and some other things to deliver those bigger gains. And if you should need it, VMP will offer one data log revision if necessary. Since the VMP tunes are a slightly more high-end option, expect to spend a little bit more than some of your other options here on the site, for your GT. Again, they do offer the E85, nitrous, and forced induction tuning, and that's going to add a little bit more to the final price tag. Now those tunes do come emailed to you for easy upload onto your X4 Power Flash Tuner, which does have some nice features on its own. Some of the biggies with the X4 Tuner include a nice bright, full-color LCD screen, which is going to be very easy to see, it can data log with a simple touch of a button, it's going to be able to read and display up to eight different values from your car's ECU at any time. This includes intake air temperature, air/fuel ratio, RPM, cooling temperature, things like that. It can store up to 10 tunes at one time, and it can read and clear those diagnostic trouble codes. And if for whatever reason, you ever wanted to return your car back to stock, the X4 can easily handle that for you with a simple touch of a button. Installing or uploading your custom VMP tune will definitely be one of the easier mods you'll ever tackle with your S197, so for that I'll call it an easy one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter, and that's being a little generous. Now you're first going to want to locate your car's OBD II port, which on the S197 is located on the lower left-hand portion of the dash. Plug the X4 tuner in, and wait for it to power on. At that point, simply navigate the menu to the program vehicle tab, select a tune you wish to upload, and then follow the directions from there, and you should be good to go in roughly 20 to 30 minutes, from start to finish. Having a chance to drive the VMP tuned 2011 GT, I can safely say they've done their homework in regards to drivability, and the power gains are certainly there, like I've already shown you with the dyno results. So even though you are spending a little bit more for the VMP option right up front, you're getting a proven product with an established name that can handle

Increases Horse Power and Torque. From the factory, Ford programs their vehicles to cater to the needs of the daily driver, not the performance enthusiast who adds aftermarket bolt-on modifications in search of more power.

Peak Gains of 7 HP @ 5300 and 5 ft-lb @ 2600, with Curve Gains of 24 HP @ 5200 and 39 ft-lbs @ 2950 have been seen on a bone stock 5.0L Mustang with a VMP 93 octane tune installed.

I have a 2014 GT, with no engine mods as of yet. I have a couple of questions. By using this tuner, will I have to run 93 octane all the time? By loading the tunes made for my car, will this eliminate the throttle lag?

Ron11

  • Hello! With this VMP X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Custom Tunes you don't have to necessarily run the 93 Octane tune. They are custom tunes so you can have them custom made for your intended use and they should be able to reduce throttle lag. However I do recommend the BAMA X4 tuner over this one, as BAMA is our in house tuning department. Also with the BAMA X4 you receive Free Tunes for Life!

I have a set of tunes already for the mods i have, but i would like to add a boss 302 intake manifold and 90mm throttle body, which is going to require a new set of tunes. Do you how much a new set of tunes from VMP will cost by any chance?

With the 3 custom tunes included with this, is it 3 separate tunes your getting included from VMP? Also, how are revisions handled if I decide to add more mods down the road and need a revision to a tune?

KeithL

  • Once a purchase is made for this item you will be required to fill out a quick survey about all that was modified on your vehicle. With that information VMP will be able to calibrate 3 tunes to your liking, e.g- Race tune, Performance tune and a conservative tune. As far as making a change in your tune, you will have to purchase a new set of tunes. The prices depends on what all is done to your car: Basic bolt on mods (11-14 GT; 12-13 BOSS): Item# 390484 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/vmp-3-tunes-boltons-1114gt.html) Nitrous, E85 or Mild Performance mods (11-14 GT; 12-13 BOSS): Item# 390486 (www.americanmuscle.com/vmp-3-tunes-mild-mods-1114gt.html) Aftermarket cams, Heavily modded N/A vehicles and Supercharged vehicles (11-14 GT; 12-13 BOSS): Item# 390488 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/vmp-3-tunes-sc-1114gt.html)

    Tuner is great, tune is average

    The x4 is a great tuner no doubt. Data logging is much more difficult than the ngauge though. As far as the tune? I'll say it's about average. I've had Lund, MPT, Bama and now VMP. You only get one datalog revised tune where as Lund will work with you till it's perfect regardless of how many datalogs you do. I'd put VMP one above bama as far as quality.
