FABSPEED MOTORSPORT | MP4-12C ECU Tune - Proven, Reliable Power

Increase the power and drivability of your MP4-12C by optimizing the parameters controlled by the ECU. We've had ample time with 657LT's on our in-house Dynojet to unlock extra power on both stock vehicles and optimize performance with our performance components. Once we receive your ECU, our tuner bench flashes it with the upgraded ECU map and we return it to you for easy reinstallation; no modifications to the vehicle are necessary. Trust Fabspeed with your baby - we've been improving McLarens since day 1 of the MP4-12C and we're dedicated enthusiasts with our own MP4-12C development car! Our top notch facility is outfitted to produce the finest exhausts and thoroughly test the results - all while extracting maximum performance with a tune to match. No bullshit marketing here – we deliver honest ‘come experience for yourself’ results and we’re always on hand to work with you to meet expectations.

POWER GAINS - Stock Hardware

Baseline = 555 whp / 429 ft-lbs
Tuned = 606 whp / 495 ft-lbs
Maximum gains of over 92 whp and 82 ft-lbs of torque at 5900 RPM
Peak power gains of 51 whp and 66 ft-lbs of torque



POWER GAINS - With Fabspeed Sport Performance Package

Baseline = 555 whp / 429 ft-lbs
Tuned = 615 whp / 502 ft-lbs
Maximum gains of over 96 whp and 85 ft-lbs of torque at 5900 RPM
Peak power gains of 60 whp and 73 ft-lbs of torque



Why Fabspeed?

Fabspeed MP4-12C Project / Extended Development Car

The Fabspeed Motorsport MP4-12C is our long term development car on which we test all hardware and software solutions to ensure you get the best possible results on your own McLaren. This beauty has seen many miles and pulls on our Dynojet in many configurations to help us dial in the best possible ECU Tune. We’ve tested everything from bone stock to full Fabspeed exhaust options.






Fabspeed Dynojet


This is where we prove our products and extract maximum performance. Updated with the latest modules to ensure true results - this machine is where we spend a lot of R&D time.
Here we are coaxing out over 700WHP with a custom turbo setup. This MP4 has run the Corsa Rally (winning the Beast of Corsa award), tackled the Tail of the Dragon, and continues to turn heads on the street.



"Who is your tuner?" Steve has been tuning cars for many years. Steve has written software being used by many other companies. He has been the first to crack ECU's before anyone else. Thousands of vehicles are running around this world with his tunes, everything from 500 WHP Hondas to twin turbo Huracans, and your car is next. Put your faith in our tuning genius.

"Will this affect my warranty or vehicle reliability?" We cannot say it will, nor that it won't. It is ultimately up to your dealership to make that call. We do extensive testing to ensure our products are reliable and engine safety is a consideration, especially with our tune. We don't craft our tunes purely for the highest numbers for bragging rights, rather the most excitement you can get without ever having to worry about a tow home from the race track.

"Sounds good, how much do I owe you?" $3,495.00 is MSRP, but shoot me a PM and I'll take care of you.

"How do I get to my ECU?" Easy. Remove the passenger side rear wheel well to expose the ECU, disconnect the harness, and pull it from the vehicle.

Shipping costs for sending an ECU to Fabspeed is the responsibility of the purchaser. The ECU will be tuned within 24-48 hours of receiving it and we will then ship back the ECU overnight to US customers and expedited worldwide to our out of country friends.

If you go to dealership, we can flash it back to stock – we always keep the factory file.

Reflashing - $250
Scenario A: We can reflash the Fabspeed ECU Tune back onto the ECU if it is overwritten by the dealership - Return shipping is covered by us.
Scenario B: We will reflash the ECU back to the OEM configuration and return it to you, shipping covered by us. We will then reflash the Fabspeed ECU Tune back onto the ECU – All shipping would be covered by you.

See all information here on our website. If you have any questions - we're here to answer them!

How fast does your shop car go 0-60, 0-100, 60-130 and quarter mile? I may be inclined to purchase the tune once my warranty expires if you could produce vbox data. Thanks!

We do not have VBOX data. Our team uses our climate controlled Dynojet, ROMER Arm, and CAD software to develop our products and dial in performance - this is all in a controlled environment under repeatable circumstances with repeatable results. We do not use the VBOX as there are so many variables which could affect performance numbers - humidity, track prep, driver, tire condition, and more which could end up with results different than our customers net. If you'd like to produce these numbers as part of a test on your own accord, we'd be happy to work with you and offer support.

Happy New Year MP4-12C owners!


Unlock your MP4-12C's true potential for 2017 with our Fabspeed ECU Tune!

Many of you already know the performance benefits of tuning your MP4-12C, but are holding back due to concerns about reliability and driveability. Well, that is exactly why I'm here!

Our in-house tuner and engineering team spent countless hours perfecting this tune for the MP4-12C. Our goal was to achieve maximum power gains (+92 whp & 82 ft-lbs) without sacrificing an ounce of drivability or reliability.

Even though we are 100% confident in meeting our goal, we still realize that you still might have reservations. This is your time to ask any questions or voice any comments and/or concerns about our ECU Tune and I will respond to them all.


Thanks everyone!

Yes, you have generated accurate data for your car. There are many variables from tire temperature, track prep, humidity, car modifications - so many variables when it comes to generating the times you seek - and your data will differ from ours and from other customers. Our tool for delivering results is our Dynjoet. We dyno over, and over, and over as we develop our products to ensure we are increasing performance under climate controlled conditions.

While we have permission from customers to use their vehicles for video and some street testing - we do not want to push the limits of our development cars on the street and put everyone at risk. That said, we always have interest in teaming up with customers to prove performance and if someone wants to test our products in a safe environment of their choosing we are always willing to work together to make something happen. We are in talks with a customer now to VBOX test our MP4-12C ECU Tune.

For $500 you can have a vbox for which you can do hundreds and hundreds of real world runs with real time results on a real road or track

Best car performance testing tool out there... so much so I can tell you my speeds and whp calcs done over several 100 runs for various gears and temps and yada yada yada for all of my cars.

Every tuner should have one, use one and then show the world the results

and for my cars the power variances are upwards of 10% in each gear depending on temps, humidity, altidude etc.. but having a vbox showed me in the real world what each mod really added or subtracted from my car/s..

Currently, I have pulls as low as 560 (90F, humid) whp in one gear WOT and as high as 650 whp (35F, dry)

eg




McLaren 650 S - custom exhaust, modded turbos bench tune
Porsche Turbo S - RWD


64 not out forever
