    Tuning school vs HP academy

    Hey guys, super new to this, been reading up for a few months now, various forms and different threads. Watched a lot of YouTube videos.

    Now I'm working my way through Dan Maslic's e-book, then planning on either HP academy, or The Tuning school.

    I'd like to get an honest opinion on both HP Academy and the Tuning School; preferably from somebody who's gone through one, or the other, or both. Is there something one has that the other doesn't?

    Does one relay the information better than the other. I know this is all super subjective but your opinion is very helpful to me right now guys thanks.

    Biggest difference being HP Academy isn't necessarily platform specific. Its more EFI fundamental and concept based. It will tell you the why, but doesn't talk about specific tables and inner workings of the vehicle you're planning on tuning. The Tuning School will be more platform specific. I wouldn't count out ERM performance's guide on tuning. Ed is great guy and very helpful. More patience than I could ever have.

    Appreciate the feedback, I'll check out ERM and see what they have to offer.

    So I took a look at ERM, but it looks like personal sessions, which isn't a bad thing at all. I think I want to start more so with videos that I can go back and watch a couple times. I wouldn't want to go personal sessions until I had some idea as to what I was doing or talking about. Maybe I am wrong in thinking that, let me know wat you think.

    Are those the only 3 to consider? T.T.S., HP.A., and ERM?

    Ed,

    I appreciate the clarification, once I'm done with the Dan Maslic's e-book I'll revisit this. Maybe your approce will be better suited for me, a one-on-one approach may work best for my learning style.

    Thanks,
    Rene
