Independent Testing Results: Mazda Miata ND

Initial Post found here: — All writing and formatting is copied directly from the source link.


I had my car dynoed at Drift Office (local performance/dyno tuning shop in Auburn, WA) today and I have to say that I am pretty happy with the results 

 Since I recently got my Edelbrock Supercharger kit, I wanted to get a baseline to see the delta gains between my current mods vs supercharger (w/ custom Ecutek tune). Once I install the Supercharger and my tune is finalized, I will go for another dyno session and post the results .

Current Mods:

  • OFT Stage 3 Map (91 oct tune)
  • OFH (Open Flash Header)
  • Greddy Axle Back Muffler

Here’s my car compared to a bone stock ND Miata on the very same dyno , it looks like the car gains about +19whp and +17 wtq with these mods which is pretty substantial IMO.

Not to mention, these are just the peak gains and gap is even bigger at certain RPMs as you can see in the graph as well as the noticeable bump in the mid range (are under torque curve). I have to mention though, car certainly feels much faster in real life, especially in the track environment where you’re consistently over 4-5k rpms. For the reference, I have been using the car primarily for track use and OFT+OFH have been on the car since day one with no ill effects. I have been also datalogging and monitoring my temps. 

More importantly, it also looks pretty similar to the with Stock ND 2 Miata numbers. For the sake of consistency, I used the graphs from the same type of dyno (Dynojet) and 91 octane tune. 

Here’s the dyno graph from Grass Roots motorsports article 

I tried to overlay above picture with my dyno graph. You will notice the most outer curve with blue line is my ND1 Miata and the dotted/fuzzy line is the ND2. So basically ND2 Stock Miata falls somewhere between the Modified ND1 and Stock ND1 lines. ND1 with tune and mods have both hp and torque advantage especially in the mid range where it matters the most and the advantage is there up until 6500 rpm. ND2 then has a slight HP advantage . I hope it’s readable 

F80 M3 Competition – More development, more results!

Tuning a car that is an already hot-rodded version of the M3 (M3 Competition) still yields plenty of gains; despite the healthy stock baseline.

New OFT Stg1 v2.2 tunes are killer. Smooth, progressive and powerful!

Thank you to Christopher Evan Lam for allowing us to use his car for additional testing for the greater good! This car is still 100% stock hardware with ONLY an ECU tune -> SMOG COMPLIANT!

Stage 1 v2.2 Results (M3 Competition Pack) = Smooth delivery

Initial Dev’: 2016+ Toyota Tacoma OpenFlash Tablet –

Well, we never considered we’d be entering the truck market, but as the saying goes “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean

In the recent past we’d picked up a 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD truck for typical day-to-day Openflash Performance Inc. operations.

Like most vehicles in our stable, we just couldn’t leave ‘well enough’ alone! The ‘can we tune it?’ bug got a-hold of us.

Whats nice is that using our programming tools, the P5 CAN is completely readable/writeable. No need for virtual reading required with this platform! Nice!

With that — we’re getting to work on .xdf creation:

Some additional photos of our truck!

Openflash Tablet programmable, free off-the-shelf tunes for life, and affordable? — This is going to be great!

F10 M5 Competition Package Results

Anthony and I spent a good bit of time on the dyno yesterday finalizing the Stg 1 tunes for our F10 M5. Interesting to note that the aftermarket exhaust didn’t improve power on our 2015 M5 with Competition Package. But it did save ~50lbs and improved sound which is always a nice thing. Keep in mind that this car is still running OEM downpipes/catalysts. I like my cars (and air) clean so going cat-less was not an option. All testing done on 91oct fuel.

The fun really started when we remapped the ECU. We developed two version of OFT Stage 1: One with Full Torque and one with Flat Torque. The Full Torque version is just that, a tune that provides generous torque in the low end and midrange. We still limited peak torque to 585lb-ft which is a reflection on our restraint since the car is capable of producing much more at the expense of repeatability and excessive engine stress.

But it’s the Flat Torque version of the tune which is novel. We purposely limited torque to stock-like torque levels. But keep it flat as possible throughout the rev range. This was still worth a nearly 100whp gain over stock. The nice thing about this Flat Torque tune is that it feels really rev happy, predictable, and easy to drive on the road. Almost as if it had a naturally aspirated engine. It begs to be revved out and feels repeatable pull after pull. Compared the more traditional Full Torque tune, this tune feels like you can beat on it all day and it will never miss a beat. Engine sounds and feels unstressed which always encourages hooliganism

M3/4 F8x OpenFlash Tablet Development

We recently purchased our own F10 M5 Competition Package and have been burning the midnight oil. Which means that the OFT for the F series M cars is only a few weeks from public release. Price for the OFT has yet to be determined. But it will include:

-OpenFlash Tablet (v2) handheld
-Free unencrypted off-the-shelf tune files (Stage 1, 2 and 3)
-Free user tuning software with definition files

Custom E-Tuning service will also available for those who want a more vehicle specific calibration.
