MG Flasher is proud to announce official support for the Gen 2 B48 and B58 platform. These vehicles use the newest MG1 Bosch ECUs (DME84T0 & DME86T0) with MCU TC29x (AURIX). After many of flashes on our development car G20 M340i and over a hundred beta users, we are finally opening the doors to the latest MG Flasher software.

A Flashing License provides access to our unique adjustable TCU torque limiter available only on these ECUs for B48 and B58 models. With our Custom Code implementation there is no need to skew the torque/load calculation model maps within the ECU to keep the limiter from triggering therefore giving us an unaltered torque value that is true within the ECU and TCU. This allows for accurate calculations, smooth shifting and no software trickery. On-The-Fly options for Aurix ECUs are under development. Stage 1 and 2 OTS maps will include options like removal of OPF, cold start, catalytic converter and speed limiter; adjustability for burbles and target engine cooling temperature is also available.

Please note, ECUs with software updates from 11/2019 and later may have OBD flashing security that require removal of the ECU to unlock via select Authorized Dealers or Tuners with specialized bench tools. Interested Dealers should contact us for exclusive access to a customized version of Magic Motorsport’s FLEX tool. We have also enabled 3rd party unlock support on these ECUs to help transition to MG Flasher. Best way to check your ECUs security level is to connect via our free app.

The following vehicles are supported:
G20/G21/G28 - 318i/320i/330i/M340i
G29 - Z4 sDrive20i/sDrive30i/M40i
G07 - X7
G06 - X6
G05 - X5
G02 - X4

If your vehicle is not listed here, please connect our free app and press “Check Support” to check if OTS maps are readily available for your specific ECU revision. We may be able to prepare them for you if not yet available.

We have prepared OTS maps for both B48 and B58 vehicles with excellent results. Our goal was to increase the performance and focus on creating safe and reliable calibrations that retain factory functions and safety features. From our many tests, our B58 OTS maps have modest gains; up to an additional 109 hp & 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) on stage 2 from stock! On 184 hp model B48 vehicles our stage 2 maps increase stock output by up to a whopping 156 hp & 201 Nm (148 lb-ft)! All attached dynos are measured in bhp except for the DynoJet B48 which is measured in whp.

B58 Gen 2
Stock: 382 hp & 500 Nm (369 lb-ft)
Stage 1: Up to 450 hp & 636 Nm (469 lb-ft)
Stage 2: Up to 495 hp & 680 Nm (502 lb-ft)

B48 Gen 2 184hp model
Stock: 184 hp & 270 Nm (199 lb-ft)
Stage 1: Up to 310 hp & 430 Nm (317 lb-ft)
Stage 2: Up to 340 hp & 470 Nm (347 lb-ft)

The new MG Cloud Log Viewer is available online and it is integrated with our professional logger built into the MG Flasher App. Tuner’s may customize which RAM addresses to log in order to get direct access to the ECU’s internal calculations. Users may upload logs directly to their cloud account after linking their API key with a new MG Cloud user account. We’re working on joining accounts together for ease of use. Have a look at the example logs Stage1 M340i G20 on our new MG Cloud Log Viewer: https://logs.mgflasher.com/log/7cad41d1-debb-468c-a69b-7c15a5367cd3.

Now that we have official support for these vehicles, our next steps are to create custom code including switchable maps, burbles, max cooling, and antilag. The goal is to enable in app adjustable custom code ON THE FLY, where flashing will NOT be required to change settings!

We would like to thank everyone who helped make this possible. Thank you to our dealers who have all worked hard to test the flashing process and search for bugs. The many beta testers who allowed us to develop software directly on their vehicles and spend countless hours driving and logging. Finally, thank you to the huge fan base that has grown over the last few years, you motivate us to continue making MG Flasher better than ever!

We are looking forward to your feedback.

Many MG Flasher users and 3rd party tuners have requested more logging parameters; we are here to deliver! In a recent update we added advanced monitoring of boost, relative filling and injection channels. For cars that support these parameters, users may now find PID controller variables (for fine tuning boost), relative filling limiters (including an index value to help locate the source of the limiter quickly), HPFP quantity valve delivery time and much more in our premium logger! We will be updating the User Manual to include an appendix with a full list of logging parameters soon. Authorized tuners can also specify which RAM address they would like to directly log. Interested users may request access for direct RAM logging as well. Please let us know what other logging parameters you would like to see in MG Flasher!

Once users have logged their car, they may use MG Flasher’s free new MG Cloud service to upload and view logs. Our cloud log viewer enables you to quickly toggle the display of different parameters, rescale the y-axis for individual parameters, zoom on points of interest and much more! Create a free account at logs.mgflasher.com to grab your API key, copy it into the MG Flasher app under “External Services”, and get started by uploading multiple logs directly from the app! Logs on our server are sorted by VIN for your convenience and secured for privacy measures. You can also share your logs with our staff for fast support.

In an upcoming update, burble aggression and duration maps will be reworked. The lower aggression settings will now be more tame and selectable duration range has been rescaled for a 0.1 second resolution between 0.0 and 4.0 seconds.

Technical Support over the holidays will be limited between December 24th, 2020 and January 3rd, 2021. We will be back at full weekday support on January 4th, 2021 with our regular hours: 9am – 4pm EST Monday to Friday. Stay safe!

Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

B48 F-series Switchable Maps On-The-Fly Update
MG Flasher update v277

Switchable Maps On-The-Fly are now available on F-series B48 through MG Flasher’s latest app update v277. Following the successful launch of our B58 switchable maps a few months ago, we immediately started testing on the B48 platform. This week we finally released the latest B48 OTS map update (v1.8) that contain 5 slots to choose from. Drivers can switch mapping between different power levels and different octane / ethanol blends without the need to reflash the vehicle! Through a simple combination of the Brake Pedal, Accelerator Pedal and the Driver Select Switch you can quickly choose which slot you want to use. Watch our instructional video on YouTube to see how it works and read our User Manual for details!
. Minimum OTS map version for B48 engines, v1.8 is required to enable our Switchable Map option. Tuners should contact us about accessing Switchable Maps when using the “Custom Flash Menu”.

Many of you requested support for additional octane levels of fuel, so we added 102 RON (95 OCT) and ACN 91 (for low quality 91 OCT / 95 RON) to the list of choices when picking a file to flash. The octane level you select before flashing is the default (slot #0) map that is active after flashing. Slots 1 - 4 will contain either a lower/higher octane level, E30 or E50. We also added additional power levels to which you can immediately switch, Stock (184 bhp or 252 bhp, depending on the car) and 252 bhp.

We have created infographics (one for Stage 1 and another for Stage 2) to help identify where you can find a given fuel type or power level. Columns are the selected file flashed to the car (identified by ACN 91, 95 RON, 98 RON and 102 RON) and rows are the slots you can cycle through On-The-Fly once the car is running. When the map is flashed, you can view the available slots (for the flashed file) on the MyCar page by tapping the ECU info area. You can also find this information in the OTS map release notes.

Checkout some of the results for our E30 map (with 100 RON) on a Stage 2 B48 320i by looking at the log on MG Cloud Log Viewer (link below). Torque and power at 490 Nm and 345 bhp, respectfully, with zero timing corrections and ignition reaching 18°kW. When on E50, our tester F30 xDrive got a 100-200 km/h Dragy time of 11.6s!

The MG Flasher team has work very hard to create a professional method for enabling On-The-Fly switching. These are not just limiters and constants that are switched, but entire calibration tables and maps as well. It is virtually the same as flashing a new calibration for one specific fuel type or power level, but with the ability to put multiple calibrations into one file. MG Flasher’s unique custom code is so advanced that it is switching over 20 different maps including:
- Lambda and fuel maps
- Ignition timing tables
- Load and torque limiters
- PID boost control and turbine compressor maps


Users with F-Series B58 cars have been enjoying our switchable map solution for a few months now and soon we will deliver another update for these new octane and ethanol maps. The MG Flasher platform opens the door to custom tuners who want an On-The Fly Switchable Map solution with precise adjustment when tuning for different fuel or upgraded hardware. Contact us to get started today!

The MG Flasher Team
