OTS (OFF-THE-SHELF) is geared towards users who want to quickly flash their vehicle and enjoy the benefits of their newly found power. You will see substantial gains on even stock vehicles. This option does not include map switching, launch control, or additional revisions. If you are running any ethanol blends, race gas, methanol, or aftermarket turbochargers, this option will not be available to you.
Custom is geared towards users who want to maximize their car’s potential and are willing to go through several revisions. You will typically make 30 + WHP/45 + WTQ over an OTS map. Also, this will include map switching (low boost, high boost, etc.) and launch control. This is by far our most popular option with our customer base.
ECUTEK Bluetooth Module:
An ECUTEK Bluetooth module is needed for remote tuning. This module is plugged into your OBD2 port and communicates with your smartphone over Bluetooth. It will allow you to upload tune files to your car, record and send data logs, read DTC codes, and monitor numerous critical data points about your vehicle (engine oil temperature, boost pressure, charge air temperature, etc.). These modules can be purchased second-hand, and they are not locked to any specific vehicle. We do not store any information on this module. This is simply a communication bridge between the car and the ECUTEK mobile app. When purchasing a new ECUTEK module through us, you get a 1-year warranty on defective ECUTEK modules.
If this is your first time tuning on ECUTEK, please select, No, my car is not tuned. If your car has previously been tuned on ECUTEK, your license is married to your vehicle’s ECU (Engine Control Unit) and do not need to buy another. This is not a physical license you obtain, rather a digital license that is applied to your vehicle. The ECUTEK license does not reside on your ECUTEK Bluetooth module or DESKEY. We will be able to verify the car is tuned once we begin our process. Also, your license cannot be sold or transferred. The 2016 – 2020 Q50/Q60 have a different licensing cost than the 2021 +.
DESKEY and Phone Flash:
These two options are ways to flash tune files to your car. If you have been tuned before and you have used one of these options, you do not need to re-purchase. You can use your existing DESKEY or phone flash license (tied to your ECUTEK account you use to login to the ECUTEK mobile application). If this is your first time tuning with ECUTEK, we highly suggest picking phone flash as it will allow you to use your smartphone to upload tune files which is typically easier for majority of our customers.
DESKEY – This is a USB dongle that plugs into a windows-based laptop and will allow you to upload tune files to your vehicle. OSX is not supported for the ECUTEK software.
Phone Flash – ECUTEK phone flash license that is tied to your ECUTEK account you use to login to the ECUTEK mobile application. This is a one time fee and will transfer if you purchase another vehicle supported by ECUTEK (BMW, Infiniti, Subaru, Mitsubushi, etc.).
The 2016 – 2020 Q50/Q60 have a different licensing cost than the 2021 +. Please make sure you are selecting the correct options as the pricing is different between the two. If your car has been tuned before on ECUTEK, you do not need to purchase another license.
