    Hello, I'm new here so hopefully you guys will understand. I was looking into the possibility of tuning my 2012 3.7 Mustang, I think being able to tune a car is an amazing skill to have. I already know a lot of the basic concepts of tuning, and I downloaded the hptuners demo software and was looking through some of the sample calibration files, one of which was a 2006 mustang GT, it didn't look too complicated.While I understand that half the battle is datalogging and getting the car to respond to changes, it looked like for the most part, I just needed to adjust only a few tables, borderline spark and then the WOT fueling to make power(not counting VCT or any Traction stuff, tip in, etc, don't know how to use that yet) .

    I know that tuning the copperhead is a whole different animal, before I go any further, I was wondering if it was possible if I could look at a sample calibration from a 2011+ 3.7 mustang (manual preferably), that I could open in the demo software just to see how complex it really is. Thanks in advance guys, I think it's awesome hptuners is supporting the new fords and adding extra functionality to their product so quickly.

    just a heads up the 2012 3.7 mustang doesn't use copperhead, it uses some derivative called the ESYS 2048k.

    So I'm guessing my request was a little outside the realm of possibility?

    Thanks for getting back to me Bill, hptuners looks like a great option for the DIY tuners out there.

    You can download the stock tune and create a support request to have the definition created with attached .hpt file.

    I have tuned my wife's 2013 3.7 with success.

    Probably stupid question, but wanned to ask just to make sure. Please advise for Mustang 4.6L 3V to tune AFR - i assume there are 2 main tables affecting it: MAF table and AFR target map. So if we change something in the vehicle like headers... cams... should MAF be recalibrated to get AFR according to Target map? or there is any other map may be like VE or something?

    Just a suggestion, there are a couple threads covering 18 manifold swaps on to the gen 1 and 2 coyotes with IMRCs. We should post the values used to make this swap work, since we have one for delete i think we should have one for keeping them.
