    Hello, I'm Jason. Hail from Detroit originally, military brought me to NW Florida some years ago and I never left after I retired. I am currently running a 2009 corvette base that I have had a metric ass ton of work done to and it shits on itself when I run it. So I am here looking for help. I bought an HPtuners MPVI2+ and managed to download my tune to send out to anyone who might be able to help. Just hoping its not something internal on my motor. I'm new to tuning, but have been wrenching on muscle cars and junk since I was a kid. Thanks-

    Hello, I'm Joey from South Louisiana. I work at my family's body shop and joined the forum to try and tune our 13 Zl1 that we went pretty much max effort on. Went .010" over with forged pistons, rebalanced rotating assembly, ported everything, Nick Williams 102mm throttle body, and 1000cc flowed stock injectors. Want to have it dyno tuned by a pro but I want to learn myself also. Forum has already helped me figure out some things and will post about that on the gmve tuning page that smokeshow started. Good Day All

    Howdy from outstate Nebraska (aka the panhandle). I'm Jeff, I am a typical tech school grad who wanted to get to work quickly and learn as I go. My father was a mechanic and told me to find a job doing anything but working on cars yet here I am at 51 years old tinkering with his 1959 El Camino. My background is essentially electrical but my current profession is Construction Manager for a power utility overseeing transmission line and substation construction. In general my experience/education came from reading, asking questions, trial and error. After my father passed I stuffed his El Camino away in a dark dry place until I could afford (time and $$) to build it right. I am a decent mechanic with better than average spatial awareness but when it comes to computer programming I am very...very novice. To date I have the Elco in the garage, stripped the mouse infested interior out and cleaned the hard parts I will save for the build, an Art Morrison chassis, and various parts from a donor 2015 Camaro SS 1LE. I have already begun reviewing the schematics and modifying them for my application, soon I hope to have the harness complete and back on the engine all tidy and as invisible as I can make it. I will need to figure out the ECM programing (VATS, emissions and other basics just to fire the engine) then I will really need help. I will do my best to research but I promise I will inadvertently ask a stupid question so please forgive me and thank you in advance for your patience!!

    Hi I am Victor, just a DIY backyard mechanic when I have the time to be working on my cars and can find the time to learn somthing new. I always wanted to learn and get into tuning. My main project out of a few is a 73 Camaro which is eventually getting a 6.0 put into it when time and funds allow, but meantime I want to take advantage of the time to slowly start searching through the forums for previous questions to learn from which may have been already asked, as well as learning to prepare and hopefully in time to become decent to when it comes to tuning.

    I'm Corey, and I'm from NC. I'm a tech for a local off road/diesel/performance shop and have used HPtuners very little, but I find it very interesting and would like to learn more about actually tuning vehicles and how to use HPT to my advantage. I've known about HPT for a long time, but only in the last couple years have I been able to actually use it. First use was "upgrading" the L5P Duramax when the tuning became available, but that is essentially flashing canned tunes. I've recently started messing with my boss's 04 Wrangler Unlimited, as it's extensively modified (super duty axles, stretched wheelbase, etc) and we had some evap codes to deal with, I know from a little research and experience with personal Jeep 4.0s that the stock fuel and timing can use some tweaking. 4.0 for now, but will be getting an LS3/4L60 (or 80, maybe enough room with the 110" wheelbase) /Atlas in the next year or so.

    Anyway, I'm here to try to soak in as much info as I can.

    Hey all, my name is James. I'm a big mustang enthusiasts and got a 2017 coyote after a hurricane in Florida totaled my built 3 valve. I love tinkering and learning new things which is what opened me up to tuning and HP tuners. Been building motors since I was 15. Currently in the coast guard got out of aircraft interior design.

    Car is only on the ford racing power pack 1 tune with X pipe and mufflers for right now. Been reading tons of info on tuning these cars before I start playing around. Holding off on my ported 18 manifold swap till I'm good to go on the tune there. Excited to be a part of the community!

    Cool Learning but still need help.

    Hi my name is Landon, I am a automotive enthusiast. I have been working on my own cars for as long as I can remember. I have started a youtube channel to document my projects if anyone is interested it is automotive LL. I have a basic knowledge for tuning, I can disable vats and segment swap and do basig diagnostic work. I have recently started racing a build of mine and was able to take home 1st place after 3 racing events and a rear end swap for some stronger components. I'll be looking for tuning help while I'm here and always open to help and suggestions. Just trying to do the best I can with the stuff I've got!

    6.0 LQ4 4L80e swapped
    Tubular front suspension with adjustable viking coilovers

    Greetings all, Aaron,, AJ, checking in from Holtville/Slapout, AL. I have a 2006 C6 base. My ECM went out on me and through varies web searches I ended up here. Ordered an 2010+ ECM from DSX Tuning. I was told by Dave Steck that "You'll need to put the ECM in the car and read the file out of it. From there, you need to make your base file and license the ECM." He mentioned that I need a scanner or HP Tuners. Here I am asking for guidance. I have no clue about tuning except that it allows tweaking the car. Should I stay or Go? Thanks. AJ

    Hello,

    My name is Joe, I am from Delaware. Recently purchased at 2018 Yukon. Tried the Diablo route but it screwed me and now I cannot return it to stock. Buddy of mine has HPTuners so I am looking for a stock ECM and TCM file for my truck. I keep seeing mentions of a repository, but cannot seem to find it. Hope to learn a lot more about HPTuners!

    Hello, My name is Randy.

    I have been tuning my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 (408 stroker kit and RHS heads with over size valves and porting, bi turbo build) Magnum V8 with other software and flash kit from SCT. It is ok I guess. Have purchased the HP Academy Training and also work on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.7l V6. Ported the head and overhauling the motor completely after 270,000 miles and a head gasket failure on passenger side head. New seats are being installed since if overheated they like to fall out! I also have a 2005 YamahaR1 that I am overhauling from the ground up with 40,000 miles on it. It is far from stock! I would like to know which hardware and software to purchase from HP Tuners to do both the Ram and Jeep? Any help is much appreciated!

    Hello tuners, My name is Steven and I'm in Newport NJ South jersey where there are no tuning shops that I know of. I have a 04 Silverado rcsb 2wd truck that I would like to put a 383 stroker engine in it. I have the MPVI2 to help me do some tuning. My first mistake was getting a tune that was locked from a custom tuner, but I found someone on the internet that unlocked them for me. I need a base tune for a 383 ls, I will probably be using 36# injectors. a cam with about .600 inch lift, 220-230 duration.

    Howdy, folks! My name is Greg and I am a complete newb when it comes to tuning. I just came into possession of a 2K Sierra with a 5.3 that has been modified and grossly tuned, so I will be graciously asking for some advice on what to do.
