    Howdy everyone my name is Jake. I been working with cars,engines,computers over 20 years nothing professional. the only thing I'm a professional at is procrastinating I just haven't gotten my degree yet I keep meaning to get it but things just keep coming up.I also keep forgetting punctuation and grammar please forgive me. I have tuned the last 10 vehicles I owned with the little handheld units. Since I now have a 2014 silverado with the 6.2 I tried a handheld unit first which had some benefits but just wasn't really happy with it then I bought a larger ported throttle body and with the surging idle and lean o2 codes I needed something better so here I am.

    so I have my stock file
    a diablo mgp tune with firm shift
    and the diablo tune with hard shift
    all saved on a freshly rebuilt and upgraded laptop dedicated to tuning, scanning, reading the forum, and researching more info on tuning my truck.

    Im not here to try to get wild gains out of my truck just looking for a little bump in power, mpg, and driveability.

    If you have any questions just ask

    Have a good one

    Hi my name is John.. I’m new here! I love to hack anything I can from DTV to DSS, internet etc .. I work on tv’s and pretty much anything electronic! I have an ampscope and I do micro-soldering on iPhones and other electronic boards.. I’ve re-built engines since high school.. went to school and got certified to work on Diesels and gas engines and Air-conditioning and refrigeration. Then I got tired of getting greasy.. so I started welding and fabrication.. then an AWS inspector .. and for the past 15 years Project Management! I currently have a 2009 Ford F-250 6.4L and I have a 2012 Ford F-250 6.7L and I’m very interested in learning how to get the most out of both ! And to make then last as long as I can! I currently have a Bullydog GT programmer which I have figured out how to un-marry and I have a S C T x 4 that was updated and no longer has the option to make my truck OFF ROAD anymore . So that pretty much useless.. I have an Ezlink with PPEI tunes but doesn’t seem to me like it does enough for what I paid for it - so I want to learn how to do my own.. so what do I need to be able to read the ECM / PCM etc on these? I was trying to find some information on how to make my Bullydog able to read and write like the H&S mini maxx since it’s pretty much the same hardware .. I just need so direction on how to re-write the firmware .. what software etc .. or what can I read the H&S files with to see what the difference is in a Bullydog file and H&S file .. I’m sure it isn’t hard to find the code .. hopefully there’s already someone with some of this information? Either way I look forward to learning! Thanks in advance for any help / direction!

    Jeremy here. Residing in MD for the meantime.....hoping to be in TN in the next 24 months

    I've been a car guys since a kid. Bought HPTuners last night since I will need to turn off the rear O2s when I install my TSP LTs and cat less Y pipe on Friday (10 Tahoe PPV)

    I work in cyber security...?...but I think this is going to be a learn curve.

    Look forward to learning this new tool

    Cheers!

    Hey guys, I'm Jim..... That's Holley, James Holley!
    Been here before, but recently acquired my TBSS and being a totally unmolested 1 owner, I wanna get to molesting!

    That said, anyone with some helpful tips, I will keep it relatively stock (unlike my Regal GS) so that said, what is a decent throttle body upgrade?
    I will also be doing the true dual setup, just checking all that is out there and seeing of I can het the valance that is cut elongated for dual tips, I kinda like that look, but if not, the SLP one will have to do.
    We've built some wide body Porsche GT bodies, I suppose I could get to cuttin, but sometimes it is nice not reinventing the simple wheel.

    Have a great day and thanks in advance!

    Hello, Matt from Oklahoma. Work on pipelines and travel a lot. Just bought myself a speedway white 01 zo6 and has quite a bit of work. The tunes not sorted and coming here to learn. Nobody I trust to touch my stuff anymore around here. Figure if I drive over the crankshaft it might as well be from my own doing. Got my idle close to sorted. It has an issue with killing itself after high load. I got throttle cracker keeping it open and that cut out a lot. Installing wide band so I can work on fueling. I suspect with dfco off it?s loading up and it?s running far anyway. High compression 408. Should be a fun car once it?s sorted

    Howdy All!

    I'm Ken and while I have been playing with MegaSquirt tuning for many years (3 VWs and 1 Honda) I am new to the newer system that my 2011 Audi uses. I'm even planning one for my 2.0T based frankenmutt of a Lotus 7 clone (VW motor, Toyota trans, Subi diff and MegaSquirt EFI!)

    It's been a shock to say the least. I have been trying to work with another tuner and their program for my 2011 Audi A5, but the support is painful and the program is difficult. Only good part was the base tunes I got from it!

    I realize that there's not a lot for what I got in the house, but the support that I already got from a tuner that eventually converted me to HP Tuner gives me hope!

    Thanks and looking forward to the fun!

    Hey guys!

    Name is Mark, been doing a lot of performance building stuff but never really got involved much with the tuning. Tuning options for certain cars we do are pretty bad, and I would like to start doing it as sending it out and getting a car back that just cam surges, intermittent no starts, not shifting when at WOT etc etc just really is not acceptable for what we are paying. So very interested in learning and seeing what I can do.

    Background is heavy on European vehicles and a lot of LSx type stuff.
