    • HP Tuners MPVI2 OBDII now supports all Mercedes-AMG motors except the M177/M178

      Remember the HP Tuners MPVI2 release? If not, it is an OBD-II device with bluetooth that has internal logging. Is is capable of scanning, storing, diagnostics, logging, and ECU calibrations and now supports all Mercedes-AMG motors except the M177/M178.



      Labworx is already playing around with the device and can tune your AMG through it. This is a very nice piece of hardware with all kinds of features we wish were available to other German tuning markets as well.

      You can use HP Tuner's VCM editor to edit files and flash them back to your car wirelessly:

      Packaging VCM Editor together with MPVI2 allows you to read most vehicles control modules flash memory and save it in our proprietary .HPT file structure. VCM Editor enables you to adjust a multitude of complex parameters such as torque strategies, spark tables, fueling, RPM limits, fan activations, transmission shift points and pressures, exhaust valve control, speedometer settings and many more. Finally, you can write these changes back to the various vehicle control modules via the MPVI2.
      This is absolutely one of the coolest and most useful tuning toys on the market.

        ECUs are very similar, I will ask if there is any ETA or idea if this is something they are working on, but as I said previously I wouldnt discard this as being an option very soon

        Thanks, please let me know. M177/M178 support would be HUGE.

        HPtuners is awesome. The only problem with the MPVI2 is that it doesn't have the option for analog external wideband input like my older MPVI-pro but mine doesn't have the wireless stuff.
        But it is nice being able to just wire in my AFR500V2 and get real wideband feedback in my logs

        He said it has M157 support so I would think yet but let's see him confirm.

        This is a link to their officially released and supported list of vehicles, I know the M278 is supported for sure, in the case of for whatever reason your specific ECU doesn't get recognized, they can and will add support for it very quickly, once an ECU is supported their process to add support for variation is effortless
