    Hello Everyone! New to the forum here, just thought Id say hello. Recently, just purchased a MPVI2 Pro, and will eventually purchase a daytona wideband for it. Ive been a mechanic for over 20yrs, and currently work as a prototype engine mechanic at one of the Big 3. Though I've been wrenching for many years, I never got into the calibration and tuning side of things, so this is a new learning adventure for me. I have a 2014 Camaro SS 6M (stock at the moment) that Im looking forward to getting a little tuning experience with. With that said, could anyone recommend a place to start? I know the forums here are a wealth of knowledge, but I'd like to learn the right way in steps. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello. I’m Mike and new to HP tuners. I’m tired of being at the mercy of diablosport’s sub par hardware and professional tuners that could give a damn less about a customer 6 states away. I have a 2014 AWD Dodge Charger RT. I have already done the mds delete and comp cams 270 phaser cam swap. American Racing catless longtubes into a magnaflow cat back. Also installed a 3k stall converter and 180 degree tstat. It’s currently running a tune from (won’t be named) who I asked to transfer the tune from the Diablosport predator 2 to the MPVI2. Both of these tuners were purchased from the same shop and I paid for the remote tuning package as all mechanical work was well within my means. I have been back burnered and am tired of being forced to wait for them to get around to rewriting the tune into an HP file. I tried scanning the currently loaded tune but diablosport has my pcm locked out till I return it to stock. Does anyone here have a setup similar to mine that can share a tune so I can decipher it and try and adapt it to my car? I have searched the forums and the 270 cam has been mentioned a couple times but there was no follow through from the person who asked for help in the first place. If anyone can help, or at least point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Sup everybody, my name Is Kurt. I've been wrenching full time for 10+ years, my motto is... if its held together with nuts and bolts I can figure it out. I have a 14 GMC sierra genV 5.3l I'm going to learn tuning on. As I research it seems like this is a more difficult configuration to learn on but its what I got so i'll take baby steps I guess. I've been working at small town shop for the past 5 years, spent a few years at a Cadillac dealership, and a long time ago I worked at a Massey Ferguson/CAT dealership. Also worked on heavy equipment for about a year, that shit is too big and fleet work sucks sooo f that. I'm glad to see the help from other members on here as I read other threads. Hopefully someday I can be giving solutions but for now i'll be the newbie asking the questions probably.

    Scott here. 2013 sierra 5.3 130k AFM TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK. Its really completely undetectable until you're by a wall. I am in no rush to fix it but when I do I hope to be famililar enough with this devise to not accidently fail to save a data log at the end of a recording. That would be great. The scanner side is pretty amazing but the software behind it is lacking a bit. I expected at least a short manual. I have figured out a whole bunch today. I have bought zera credits. TBH I fixed most of my trucks issues using Seafoam Head cleaner stuff. Spray directly into throttle body I had it at 2000rpms for about 5min. Just keep spraying. read directions. Follow them. Sinus meds for yo truck. What else. Why isn't HP and torque on by default? A hard case. engravable. Weldable. Johnny 5 alive. Just playing with idle rpm increase by1s and 10s is really amazing. It kinda blew my mind. The scanner side is legit. You can figure most stuff out on your own but I have a te,p sensor measuring much warmer than it should. It was fine on last ride. Months before I really need it. Auto saved. would have auto saved a bunch of effort on data logs.

    Hi I'm Dylan, I recently started using my mpvi on my 2018 Silverado, I've also mildly tuned a 2 2015 Mustangs (5.0 and 3.7) and so far they have loved what I've done. I'm always wanting to learn more and want to start my own shop tuning for the local area. So far I've had no trouble using the software or made any mistakes in my tuning. Like anything else, I've learned that it takes patience and time to understand what you're doing with HPTuners. Hopefully within the next 2 to 3 years I'll be where I want to be.

    Fairly new here. 2002 2500 ccsb Duramax Allison. Been fiddling with timing calculators and such. Downloaded some tunes and noticed even though they're for an lb7 truck they have a fuel gauge table mine doesn't. Can I reflash with this tune to adjust my fuel gauge?
