2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: BRZEdit Reflash Tuning By MP Tuning

March 13, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

That's Mitch Pederson of MP Tuning getting busy with the BRZEdit ECU reflashing software on our long-term 2013 Scion FR-S. This is significant, as BRZEdit clears a huge hurdle in successfully implementing forced induction.

But we're taking one step at a time. Currently we're (by that I mean Mitch) just exploring the software, getting a feel for its capabilities, and confirming that it works as advertised. Don't want to rush into this, that's for sure.

So far, so good. BRZEdit impresses. Its interface is intuitive and appears to have been developed by people who understand engine tuning. Many, many maps are at the tuner's disposal, and it's fun to watch Mitch fully immerse himself into them. As you can see, he gets into a trancelike state.

There's not much to report yet, but we'll have more to share once we nail down some dyno time.
