Has anyone installed the EVOSMSit ecu software of V-Flow intake system? I'm considering having it installed on my car and I wanted any feedback if anyone has any. Let me know. Thanks.

I called Evolution Motorsports after I heard that they had developed an ECU upgrade for our car. They just released the V-Flow last week. they claim 28hp and 21 ft / lbs of torque at the wheels for the ecu upgrade and the intake. they mentioned that driveability is significantly improved with the ecu and intake upgrade. I can send you the marketing sheet if you give me your email. I might take my car in this week to get it installed.

By V flow are you referring to the intake flow.The sort of thing you check to verify improvements from changes such as filters and exhaust mods.Would the bigger V10 sideblades affect this as well ? I know that at speed the New blades should scoop some extra air.:)

Yes, it's their V-flow intake system. I have a pdf file that contains the dyno chart for the v-flow intake and the v-flow intake with ecu upgrade. How can I post that file? Or can I email it someone to post? Let me know. Thanks.

Just remember that the graph that you posted only includes the ECU remap. Their website does not list the graph that contains both the ECU remap and intake combo. I have that from the EVOMSit brochure.

I made my purchase in Germany when I was there in October.Paid cash (EUROS).Brought them back in my luggage. Paid no taxes...Pretty much smuggled 'em into the U.S. undeclared !!! Try speaking/communicating with Sener Taniolu at PPI , Germany (in Weinblingen). Sener knows me as JANER. (my last name).He helped me save money ,maybe he can help other forum members as well. :)

Had I known what I now know, I would have tried to purchase the manifolds alone and purchased filters of my choice.THE FILTERS ARE UNIVERSAL.And can be purchased quite reasonably. The manifolds are the complex parts.Someday these parts will be available from other countries and at dirt cheap prices...right now the R8 is still so new...The manufacturers have us by the SHORT HAIRS !! :eek: :eek: :eek:
