Hey everyone! I just got a 19 rrs v8 and see this tune gets the truck up to a fun up number. My concern is reliability over Time as mine is a lease. I’m not tracking or anything crazy just those fun sprints (to the legal speed limit of course). Has anyone been running this tune for a length of time to give me feedback if any issues have surfaced? Thanks in advance!

Had the tune on my HSE for 10 months, no issues! The tune made it feel like a whole new truck, and the guys at VelocityAP were great to work with. Just got a 2019 Supercharged Dynamic. Enjoying the power of the V8 so far, but I'll probably want more power at some point!

Great to hear the positive experiences. Does anyone know if they plan to eventually offer the ability to keep the handheld flashing tool for 2017MY+?

Oneway, I have your identical vehicle. You can purchase the scan tool from them but it is a bit pricey. If you purchase it it does allow you to reset to factory when you go in for service with out waiting for a loaner.

I have a 2015, so I get to keep the scanner tool vs. the newer models where it is loaned. Showed up Friday, but I was out of town this weekend. Will report back on install and butt dyno as soon as I can install.

Sent my stock file late Thursday and got the mod files over the weekend. Installed on Sunday night when I got back in town and went for a drive. All I can say is 80HP is very, very noticeable. It was no slouch before, but also didn't seem to be in any great hurry. "Adequate" would be the best way to describe it before vs. now the car seems to drive to redline with a sense of urgency. I jumped on the freeway for a bit, did a u-turn, mashed it on the on-ramp and got to 90 way. way quicker than before. The sluggish throttle response seems better. Still not the same as my 3-Series in Sport Mode, but noticeably improved over stock. Several people have stated this mod really helps bridge the gap between the v6 and v8 and I would agree. For anyone out there with the v6 wanting a bit more power, the Velocity tune is money well spent. Highly recommended.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the velocity tune! I’m hoping some folks with 2018+ V8’s will chime in on their impressions as well. Simply concerned about having to use the loaner tool instead of being able to flash at will with my own device.

Now that I've flashed the new tune, I don't expect to use the scanner again unless I have to get a recall fixed. My 2015 is just out of warranty, so will just find a good indy shop that specializes in RR. The only reason to really need the scanner after is for dealer visits, so it's really more of an issue for those of you with newer rigs.

Ditto to this. I would also like some people with 2018 V8s to give their impressions.

Just an FYI. Dealer won't know the car has been tuned when you bring it in for service or an update so you really don't need to remove it when bring it in. I have had mine tuned for almost 4 years and car goes in for regular service all the time as is. They are not looking for it nor can they tell by just driving it around the block a few times before or after service. Nor do they really care from what I have been told by my service guy directly. And I also have the pulley as well.
