Thread: Looking for a tuning god

    Looking for a tuning god

    Hi all. I'd post this in the proper forum, but it would not be seen most likely.

    I've owned HPTuners for a long time, only used it on my Chevy Trailblazer SS about 12 years ago when I put a TVS2300 supercharger on it, so I understand how to tune a Chevy. My problem it, I want to tune my Jaguar F Type, which is supported by HPTuners, but has completely different parameters in the tune file that doesn't translate to Chevy very well. I upgraded to the MPVI3 and was able to download the stock tune. If you are a tuning god, and are up the the challenge, can you look at my stock tune and tell me how to tune fuel and timing? Any help would be appreciated. Tune is attached.

    Almost don't want to reply to a thread with "tuning God" attached to it.

    That's a MED17 controller and they're pretty common. Any Ford experienced tuner would be comfortable tuning this.

    So should I try the Ford forum then? I don't want a tuner to tune it, I want help tuning it myself. Thanks for the reply!!

    Gods are not going to want to work with mere mortals. Maybe find a tuning angel.

    Post it in the Jag and Ford sections. You might get some help over there.

    If you are having trouble understanding Jaguar's logic, why not just pay a pro to get you started? Would you try to build something complex with instructions in Hungarian? I know I wouldn't.

    I started to add a link for my post #2, but there are only 10 threads total, 2 of which were started by the original poster. And 18 replies total. So a pretty dead section.

    It's the new standard I promise you. Along with Ed's crystal ball it's all covered.
