    My name is Raymond but I go by Rj. I love all vehicles four wheels or two. I live in between Japan and California (originally from California) for work. I'm pretty good at working on cars, trucks and motorcycles. As I grew up I learned how to build and programming computers, cars and motorcycles. I've got a 2015 Dodge Charger, 2015 Harley Davidson Road King and 2000 Chevy Silverado and intend on learning as much as possible here and helping out when I can.

    Steve here from Napa CA. Hoping to get some EFI tuning advice for my 01 Mustang Gt for Bracket racing. EFI is all new to me, I come from the carbuerated era. Is there a section for asking dumb questions

    Joe from Central Pennsylvania. Looking for some good tips and ideas on how to improve my skills tuning Fords, perhaps GM at a later date. I have a 2005 Mustang 4.0 V6, with basic bolt on's, looking to add some custom tune performance to my car. So far, the software seems very user friendly.

    Mike from Southeast Michigan. Just ordered HPTuners to start playing with my GEN III and GEN V trucks. I have some ECU calibration experience on turbocharged Subarus, I owned them for about 12 years and re-calibrated them myself with a good degree of success. After learning about GEN III calibrations, it would seem it is very similar to the Subaru tuning I've done. The GEN V stuff is new to me and I have a LOT to learn there.

I have experience with Holley HP on a 507 CI twin Turbo Cadillac I built about seven years ago, I also build stand along harnesses for the LS and would like to add the tuning process to my capabilities. Look foward getting to know new people with common interest. Thanks for having me

    Hi all. This is my first ever forum post and I would like to know the best way to go about it. I am in regional Australia and finding a tuner that can answer my questions (happy to pay $$$ for the time) and understand my application ( modified Tractor Pulling) is proving to be a big challenge. I don't really know where to post my question so a shortish version is as follows.
    I have the software and log all my runs then look at the data to try and learn what its doing in real time on the track. I run an LS2 with electronic throttle body a 228/232 @50 cam with valve springs to suit. My Throttle position and Accelerator are logging at 38% when my foot is flat (the ETC TPS V RPM Table is set at 100% from idle effectively). I have the log of my run but not sure how to post it for others to view, hopefully someone can help with this as well!!!!
    My question is how can I check if the throttle is fully open when my electronic pedal is flat, which table is this and what would it look like. Thanks in advance for your advice on where this should be posted.

    Hey everybody. Nice to be here looking forward to get to know some of you. I have been a mechanic for 32 years. I started off in the local gas station working the full service pump if any of you know what that is anymore and worked my way up the ladder. I was a generator mechanic and light wheeled vehicle mechanic in the Army then transferred to the North Carolina National Guard and worked on everything they had. When my enlistment was up I took auto mechanics at the local community college and have done that ever since except for a break working in a truck shop for a couple of years. I am currently working for my best friend in his shop as the restoration and troubleshooter guy. I specialize in electronics and drivability issues as well as fab work. I look forward to sharing ideas and knowledge with all of you.

    Hello from Cincinnati, Ohio!

    My name's Kyle!

    I have a fully loaded short wheelbase 06 Trailblazer LT 4x4 with an LH6 5.3 e40/t42 platform. I plan on learning to tune this myself along the way in efforts to do the small things I can to make improvements to the GM vehicles in my family.

    The Trailblazer is pretty much stock besides replacing the entire suspension and lowering it alongside using some 4" intake tubing and a k&n filter For a DIY intake. I'm the second owner as I bought it from my parents when I caught them trying to trade it in. I've done all the maintenance on this after the original motor was replaced under warranty by the dealership due to a faulty oil pump.

    I've always had a passion for anything with an engine, or computer and I've always been big on doing it myself and upgrading failed components. I've spent a lot of time overclocking Intel CPU's, to which tuning seems to share the same ideology of removing bottlenecks and tightening tolerances. I've never merged the two until I snagged an mpvi2 from the guys over at PCMofNC in my being lazy and not sending my pcm in after my fan clutch died and I happened to have a set of cooling fans I had laying around from a friends ws6 to justify the cost.

    I've already Disabled AFM/DOD, got my e-fans going and used the logger enough to make an airbox/heatsheild to lower my iat's in my first week of tinkering.

    I'm eager to learn and grow within the community! Already made a post over in the GM Gen 4 V8 area, but figured I'd see if there was an introduction thread afterwards.

    Hello all! I am new, but not new to tuning. I have the other tuning software that I have used for several years but took about 6 years off. Gen 3 and duramax mostly, and all for myself. I was a duramax tech for 13 years and then flipped careers over to heavy machine field tech for John Deere and now Cat. I now have a 2010 Camaro SS LS3 M6 that I am setting up for a Whipple down the road. Cam, headers back Kooks, 5" intake, and HP tuners. The Headers and intake tune when well, but now I have a PD blower cam and can't seem to get the injector timing figured out. I have been reading everything I can on the gen 4 stuff and have most of it down. VVE is a weird bird and makes it a pain to keep coefficients from swaying the values. Any who, Thanks to all that have posted up problems and who help us figure out our problems.

    Hi My name is Mike, my son has a 2015 Cruze 1.4L. We did some mods and now are using the HP Tuners to tune it.

    I look forward to learning more about this process and see what you guys are doing.

    Hi I'm George from S.E. Michigan. I just picked up HP tuners yesterday to tune a LQ9 6.0L in a 2003 Escalade. I'm going to learn the tuning software first, then eventually more compression, ported heads and a cam. I intend to enjoy it until Michigan rust takes it away, then I will swap the LQ9 into something less crusty. I have a good understanding of engines but have a big learning curve ahead of me. I plan on taking baby steps for quite some time.

    Hi, my name is Todd from Bay Saint Louis, ms. i have an 02 SS/SLP camaro that i'm working on. so far i've swapped the m6 out for a turbo 400 and a 8.8 ford rear with 3.73 gears. it's a cam and header only car but have plans to do a 6.0 or 6.2 and prob LS3 heads and intake. really wanted the tuner myself to be able to turn off all the unused lights and see where all the parameters are now. the car was tuned by a local tuner with HP tuners after cam change before i purchased car from a friend. my plan is to learn how to tune myself eventually. I purchased the MPVI2 Pro.
