Over the past year we've been developing our in-house European ECU tuning capabilities. While there are a lot of companies offering 'tunes' for European cars, only a handful actually develop their own tunes from scratch. Most companies just resell generic tuning files and have no experience or knowledge of how to calibrate an engine. AMS has been tuning cars on the dyno, at the track, and at rally stages for well over 10 years now. The knowledge we've gained from in depth stand alone ECU engine tuning and also what we've learned from our own engine development programs now gets translated in our new line of European tuning. A great example of this is tuning philosophy shows in the recent tune we did for a 2004 Bentley Continental GT.

The car came to us completely stock and after a few baseline pulls made 437WHP on our Dynojet all wheel drive dyno. After pulling the factory file off it we began the tuning process. We changed a good amount of parameters in the ECU including timing, fuel, boost levels, rev limits, speed limits, cam timing and others. We tuned these parameters and logged after every change to make sure that we got the most accurate tune possible.

After our Archetype ECU calibration the car gained around 110WHP and over 110 ft/lbs of torque in some areas, more than any other tune we've seen available for the Continental GT! There was room for more power but we built in a buffer of safety in case of poor fuel quality, extreme temperatures, or other outside influences. Overall the car picked up a healthy amount of power across the entire RPM range with no sacrifice to drive ability or reliability.

Stock HP: 552 hp
Archetype Tune : 680 hp

Stock Torque: 479 ft-lbs
Archetype Tune: 580 ft-lbs
