Remote Tuning FAQ

A combination of a free application Teamviewer which allows us to remote into your PC and logs from the Adaptronic Software Eugene. 

The basemap will be created based on the specifications you listed when checking out. All sensors will be confirmed working. If a sensor is not working the session will end and resume when the sensor is fixed. Set base fuel pressure. At this point we will start the car and let it get to operating temperature. We will set the idle to your preference/engine ability. Check Base timing with a timing light. Do some free revs to check initial fuel map values. 

Items that are required for this service:

Teamviewer installed (Have your Partner ID and Password ready to give to us)

Eugene installed

Internet connection (make sure its stable were the car is before our session)

Timing light (A non fancy one please.. One that just flashes the light works perfectly. If you have a fancy one set it to zero.) 

Tools to adjust fuel pressure

Two Thumbs and a Smile when you start your car for the first time :)

This service starts once the Engine First Start Service has finished and the car is ready for its first drive. 

This service is done primarily with logs and when the car is deemed ready for the dyno. 

How the log process generally works: 

Files 1-3 are concentrated on light throttle vacuum area's only - No boost. (If you have a fresh engine we will limit your RPM to builders recommendation and you will do most of your break-in miles with these files) 

Files 3-6 are concentrated on higher rpm vacuum and low boost. (note every car is different we may go higher in boost depending on how the car is responding to the tuning) 

Files 5-15 are concentrated on mid-range boost under 1 bar (14.7psi). This is were problems tend to show themselves like overboosting and fuel pressure drop. We rely on the safety features to ensure the protection of your engine. If we do run into one of these issues. The logs/files will be delayed until the issue is fixed. 

Most customers at this point are ready for the dyno at this point. The dyno is the safest method to dialing in the power for just about any setup mild-wild.

How dyno process generally works:

You would reach out to a dyno facility in your local area to rent the dyno (most sessions are 2-3 hours) The facility does need to have an internet connection. During the dyno session I will be remoted into your PC with Teamviewer. This allows me to communicate with the dyno operator and make changes live. 

Once the Dyno session is done. There will be on average 4-6 file adjustments needed to be done. 

Note for customers wanting more than 1 bar boost during log tuning that is fine but it is preferred/recommended to do it on the dyno.
