    2018 + Hyundai GAMMA Engines

    Flashing 2018 + Hyundai Turbo PCM's (KEFICO) will also be a hot ticket, Hyundai Motors America is now releasing a line of performance parts for these engine platforms.

    Glad that HPTuners stepped into the Hyundai Community as the GAMMA engines have quite a good following and seem to be doing very well.

    Plus there are a good amount of vendors already selling parts for these engines as well.

    Issue with the newer ECU many are using is they are much more difficult to read/write. I understand there are units out there that can do so now. Not sure about the ability to read and edit maps though.

    I do not know anyone in the USA that can read/edit/flash them via OBD2 unless maybe BTR or Lap 3 USA. But they may do it via bench flash opening the ECU like Tork Motorsports does currently.

    In Europe there is a device used to read/write but not sure about editing maps. It's pretty costly as well in terms of an individual wanting to tune with.

    So what's needed and the process on these ECU using these items? Can Bflash read all the OEM tune files and edit them as well?

    I've tried tuning these ECU some myself with what I have which is very limited and did not get far. Would like to have something user friendly with plenty of maps to work with to give it another try. But at around $6,000 USD, maybe not, lol!

    I'd be happy to see the base model 2.0 non turbo be able to be edited.

    The 1.6 non-turbo gain up to around 15 whp and 30 wtq. I'm sure similar would be possible with the 2.0.
