Remote Tuning FAQ

The best way is to use our interactive schedule system! This directly reflects our schedule and gives you dedicated time with us. There are links to individual options at the bottom of the website as well.

A combination of a FREE applications Zoom, google drive and your email. Zoom allows us to have a converation along with remote control of your PC. Google drive allows us to recieve large log files without email restrictions.

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:

Zoom Installed on your tuning PC

Haltech NSP Software installed and fully updated

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 is an A-Z service that will walk you through the process of tuning you car with Haltech Engine Management Sytems! We take the time to setup the basemap with you live allowing us to not only cater the basemap specifically for your car it enables us to help you quickly identify any issues that may prevent the car from running properly. Once the car is ready to start driving that is when the logging process is started. The goal of the logs is to confirm the car is ready for the dyno which includes breaking-in a fresh engine and troubleshooting any issues that may prevent a successful dyno. During the logging process we will do a session or two to dial in the cold start and idle settings live. Now the car is ready for the dyno you will make arrangements with your local dyno facility for us to tune your car live on the dyno. After a successful dyno session we do like to see a log or two to make sure our calibrations from the dyno match the street along with any type of cleanup that may have been missed at the dyno.
