HP Tuner Question

Post by bluethunder » Sat Mar 11, 2017 2:28 am

Do most people here purchase some type of scanner tool / computer program to retune there car after mods are done. Or is it best to take it to a full time tuner to get the most out of your car. These tuner packages,(like HP) and others are pretty pricey, and not sure yet which direction to go in. Thanks

HP Tuners is GREAT if you know how to tune. It doesn't just do it for you and to do it right you'll need a LOT of time and a LOT of time to learn; oh and a wideband :)

Agree with Chris. HPTuners is great if you intend to actually do the tuning. If you are doing full tuning, the Pro version is the one to have since it has the analog inputs for your Lambda/Wideband so VCM Scanner data logs with your other PIDs and Maths (parameters). If you want to work with a remote tuner, the lower level HPTuners is the one to get. HPTuners probably has the largest user base so peer support and the number of available remote tuners will be better.

If you are just data logging and clearing codes, there are probably cheaper solutions.
