It is always a good idea to get advice and find out what other people have experienced when it comes to tuning. If you have any questions about our tuning process and what we offer, let us know, we will be happy to help.
AutoCal Tip of the Week! V2 Edition! Since we also provide tuning for customers who have a V2, and get asked a lot about how to data log with it, I thought I would share the steps here: - First you will need to have the V7.5 program downloaded to your computer. - Next you will need to save the PID file that we will send you, to your laptop. Plug the V2 into your vehicle and then the laptop as well. - Open the V7.5 Scan program. Turn the ignition on and in the Scan program, click File and then Connect, then select the controller type and hit OK. Then hit File again, then Open, Open PID selection file, and then select the file from wherever you saved it. - Finally the PIDs will pop up and then you can hit record. We think it is easiest to data log with a laptop and V2, but you can also data log with the V2 by itself, I will cover those steps next time.
Just in case you are still looking for a tuner, we would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal, it will allow us to see your vehicle data and provide your custom tune files via email. We can tune the engine and transmission. You would let us know if you have any mods, concerns with the vehicle, tune changes that you need. Let me know if you have any questions.
Seeing vehicle data would be a good way to diagnose what can be happening. We use EFILive exclusively for tuning, we would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal. The hardware is your to keep and it will allow us to see your vehicle data and provide your custom tune files via email. We will also update your tune for free as long as you own the vehicle. Since you have had it tuned with 2 other tuners I would send us an email, [email protected] and our tuner can take a look at your setup, issues you are having, and let you know what he thinks.

AutoCal Tip of the Week! Here are some examples of FAQs that we receive in regards to the AutoCal: Does the AutoCal come with any tunes? No, the AutoCal does not come with any tunes. In order for us to provide your custom tunes via email we will need a 20-30 minute data log, along with a copy of your stock tune file(s). If you are adding a supercharger, or mod where you would need a tune first, we would just need a copy of the tune file(s) from the vehicle, and we will use that to get a base tune to you, to get you up and running safely, and then have you data log. Can I tune other vehicles with the AutoCal? Yes, you can tune up to 221 vehicles with the AutoCal. We can provide tuning for 98 and newer GM gas vehicles. You can also use it to tune Duramax engines, with a diesel tuner of your choosing. Are there multiple tunes that I can change on the fly? Unlike diesel tuning, with gas tuning, all your changes, and gains are all addressed on one tune. You can have a separate octane tune, for example 89/87, or 91+ and you can switch between those. Is it compatible with an Apple (Mac)? No, you will need a laptop or desktop with Windows. Some customers have had success running Bootcamp, or Parallels on their Mac, which will allow you to run Windows. Let us know if you have any questions. We will be happy to help.

Of course I would recommend us, we would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal (EFILive). You keep the hardware, it will allow us to see your vehicle data, and provide the custom tune files via email. You can also use it to go back to factory settings when you need to, and receive tune updates via email, we update the tune as for free as long as you own the vehicle. Not sure if you mentioned, do you have a 6 speed, or 8 speed?
