We at Sonic MS are proud to announce that we've partnered with Evolve to become one of the first authorized dealers in North America for Evolve products.

All Evolve products purchased thru us carry Evolve's excellent technical support in addition to their value-added benefits.

BMW M3 E9X: Evolve-R ECU Tune Stage 1
MFG PN EV111AA



Most E9X M3s will produce in the region of 405-415bhp on the dyno. With the Evolve ECU remap, one will generally see anything upto 425-430bhp once an adaptation time period has elapsed.


Through careful remapping of the factory BMW DME tables, various elements such as ignition timing, fuel delivery, vanos position and part throttles are reworked to create performance gains.
 The result is an M3 which feels far sharper and pulls harder through the rev band, especially over 4500rpm.

Evolve's engine tuning philosophy is to improve driveability and enjoyment. They do this by giving an increase in power and torque throughout the entire rev range, and not just a 'glory' BHP figure found at high rpm where you don't spend the majority of your time. Evolve's figures are also very conservative and can easily be replicated on other dynos.

Features:
  • Additional 15bhp
  • Fully developed on dyno and road
  • Top speed limiter removal
  • Sharper throttle response and drivability
  • Flash from home convenience
  • Return to stock anytime

To get this software, Evolve now offers the revolutionary Evolve-R remote tuning tool. The Evolve-R is the latest hardware release from Evolve, enabling customers to load their industry leading ECU software upgrade directly into their vehicles themselves, at home. You can choose between the stock map or upgraded Evolve map at your convenience, and no evidence is left when you restore your stock software.

Do you already have other modifications? No problem. Evolve offers various stage maps for those with pre-existing modifications. Contact us to ensure you receive the correctly tuned maps for your modifications.

Examples of mod-specific tunes available:
- Akrapovic Evolution System
- Full "Race" Exhaust Setups (ie: catless setups such as RPI GT/M Race)
- Various Intake Setups (ie: Scoops & Performance Drop-In Filters).
- Performance Under-Drive Pulleys
- ....and more!

With the Evolve-R and the ECU software, you not only get Evolve's highly developed tuning solution for your vehicle, you also get:
  • CHANGE OF CAR DISCOUNT - If you are changing vehicle, we offer a discount of 80% on your new tune*
  • STAGE UPGRADE DISCOUNT - Want even more power? If a second or third stage exists for your vehicle that you have the mods for, you receive discounts for upgrading (price dependent upon vehicle and stage, please ask for details).
  • REPLACEMENT CAR DISCOUNT - If you replace your car for a like for like engine model you pay only for a replacement Evolve-R unit! No ECU software fees will apply!*
*Up to a maximum of 2 times. Applicable only to vehicles tuneable by Evolve-R units.



Created with extensive research and testing, the E9X M3 ECU upgrade transforms power and drivability of the S65 V8 engine. Developed with hundreds of hours of dyno testing, datalogging and endurance testing, Evolve's ECU remap delivers approximately 15-20hp and 10lb/ft torque gains on a stock vehicle while retaining maximum safety margins.

Evolve also reworks the torque calculations correctly to give consistent power. The latest version of Evolve's ECU flash has been thoroughly developed and gives an actual gain in performance rather than just a quoted figure.

Software versions for cars with performance x-pipes are also fully developed as evidenced by the second dyno chart below.

Stage 1 ECU Remap - Baseline vs. Evolve Stage 1 Software


Stage 3 ECU Remap - Baseline vs. Evolve Stage 3 Software for X-Pipes + HFCs

Evolve only advertisse their average figures based on the numerous runs they perform on their in-house dyno. You will not find any glory run figures from Evolve.


Options for the Evolve ECU Remap Include:
  • Raising the rev limit
  • Adjustability of throttle mapping
  • Removal of CEL lights (ie: for those running catless or HFCs)
  • Top speed governer removal
  • Cold Start Delete

In addition, Evolve updates their software with newer versions periodically, and they will be offered to existing customers, for free.

Why choose Evolve?
Evolve's reputation is built on ability, customer service and knowledge. They pride themselves on delivering safe and reliable software modifications that increase driver enjoyment above all else. Evolve has the capacity to create their own software and test on both their in-house dyno, on the road and track. They have tuned over a thousand of exclusive European vehicles, many of these being existing customer referrals. They also tune for various motorsport teams and other companies.

Evolve-R - Installation Overview

1. Install the supplied software on your laptop (Windows XP/Vista/7 )
2. Connect the cable to your OBD-II port and read your ECU into a file.
3. Email Evolve the file
4. Evolve tunes the file, emails it back and you use the evolve-R to flash the tuned file into your ECU.

You can replace your original/tune file at will, and of course if you add any additional modifications in the future, you use the same process to load up the new file Evolve would send you.

Additional Benefits:
- Free valet map (3k RPM limit) with every purchase
- Safe, reliable, tested extensively
- Coming soon: Datalogging & Code Clearing – free upgrades.

Stocking order just came in! We have these units in stock and ready to ship within 24 hours.



Here's a quick unboxing of the Evolve-R unit.



It comes with a USB flash drive pre-loaded with the necessary software.



In addition to a nice Evolve plaque for placement on your M3

You must re-read the software and email to Evolve for remapping.

Best thing to do is to ask your service advisor personally not to update the software unless otherwise specified from you directly.

Important Note for 2011+ E9X M3 Owners
Due to BMW's anti-tuning algorithms, those with the latest BMW ECU software will require a basic (10AMP/20AMP) trickle battery charger that is capable of maintaining a minimum of 12.5V battery voltage. This is due to the fact that the read / write times are extended in order to bypass these "locked" ECUs.

Quick update from Sal@Evolve

Hi Guys,

evolve-R Update!

One of many updates over the next few months for you.

We have now implemented the protocols for the flashing of tuner protected BMW software versions 170E, 190E.... 220E.

This was previously not available because we were not at all happy with the time is was taking to write to the ECU (45mins+) and were a little concerned with the test proceedures at the end of the flash process. The tuner protected versions do have additional test proceedures to 140E and before.

For this reason we had chosen to roll back to 140E but shown on a few occasions that flashing tuner protection was already a possibility with evolve-R

So now, we are flashing all tuner protected versions to a standard which we are very happy with.

Major Key Features:
- Flashing time is less than 5 mins! (yes, five)
- Test Routines in accordance with BMW factory flashing tools
- Have as many tunes as you want
- Ability to flash back to stock at any time

At the moment, no other tool can flash this quickly and we are using a unique process. You don't really need battery chargers or voltage stabilisers but we still recommend them just incase you have a slightly weak battery.

For those who had to revert back to 140E, please email us and we will supply you with updated software and a flash so you can remain with the tuner protected (or not so tuner protected) version. This will not incur any charges.

Next updates will be about DTC's and datalogging which will make the evolve-R cable more than just a flashing too but a complete diagnostics cable also.

Thanks for reading!
More info in the below link to the OP.

You should expect an additional 20-25bhp with the Akrapovic EVO specific tune from Evolve.
