In-House Dyno Tuning

All tuning prices are based on a four hour tuning session. Additional tuning time will be billed at a rate of $175 per hour. 
Vehicles that are highly modified will generally require more than the allotted 4 hour tuning session.

Please do not schedule dyno tuning until you are certain that your car is ready for the dyno. If your car arrives here for a scheduled tune and we determine that it is not safe to run on the dyno or if there are mechanical/safety issues we will cancel your appointment and you will forfeit your deposit. 

Please Read! We will not perform any tuning modification related to defeating emission control systems. If your vehicle has emission control components that are not operating as intended your car will have Check Engine Lights (CEL's) for those components. We will not perform any type of overrides in the tuning software. 

Note: All 2015+ Chrysler vehicles will require a PCM unlock. All 2018+ Chrysler vehicles will also require the purchase and installation of a security bypass cable. All 2018+ Chrysler vehicles will be charged an additional $100 for the labor needed for bypass installation and SKIM Security override process (2019+).

Deposits: A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required to schedule in-house dyno tuning. If for any reason you are not able to make your appointment your money will not be refunded. If you call at least 7 days before your scheduled appointment to reschedule we will apply your deposit to your future appointment and we will request an additional $100 non-refundable deposit. Please do not schedule dyno tuning until you are certain that your car is ready for the dyno.

Tuning Options for Carbureted Vehicles

 Overview

Although we have a strong background in tuning carbureted vehicles, in the past we have declined providing support for these vehicles due to the following:

  • Almost all of these vehicles arrived at our shop with numerous problems making proper tuning impossible without additional shop time correcting mechanical/electrical issues.
  • Due to the extra shop time involved the tuning bill was significantly higher than our standard non-carbureted vehicle tuning fee.
  • Many of these vehicles had owner modifications (wiring, control boxes, modified distributors, aftermarket components, etc.) that we had to validate and occasionally reinstall to our standards.
  • Tuning sessions scheduled for four hours consistently turned into 8+ hours of shop time, 5-6 hours of tuning time and a substantial bill for the customer.
  • Due to the high demand for this service we have developed a limited service option that we hope will properly set expectations and budgeting for our customers.

Tuning Options

Based on the above we have decided to reinstate tuning support for these vehicles on a very limited basis. Vehicles scheduled for tuning must meet the following criteria:

  • Holley Carburetors only.
  • Vehicle must run and preferably be able to drive.
  • Vehicle must be dropped off at the shop for at least 3-4 days.

Diagnostics

Before tuning the following diagnostics will be performed:

  • Locate TDC and mark crank damper or pulley accordingly. Install pointer if required (additional cost).
  • Remove distributor, verify rotor alignment, examine components and replace if needed.
  • Compression test on all cylinders.
  • Verify spark plug condition and plug gaps.
  • Vacuum test for proper power valve selection.
  • Examine entire vehicle for leaks, component installation and general safety for dyno testing.
  • If any repairs are deemed necessary we will contact the customer. The car can be retrieved by the customer, corrections made and tuning rescheduled.
  • If the vehicle requires repairs the tuning fee will not be discounted or refunded. We may apply a portion of the fee to the next session depending on the circumstances.
  • If work is to be performed by us the standard shop rate will apply and work will be scheduled behind existing scheduled work. This may be as long as a 3-4 month wait which may require the customer to retrieve the vehicle and bring it back for the scheduled work.

Tuning

Tuning will include the following:

  • Adjust timing and fueling for drivability.
  • Adjust timing and fuel for wide open throttle.
  • Fueling modifications include primary and secondary jetting, primary side power valve calibration, accelerator pump calibration (replacement parts are an additional cost if needed).
  • Adjustment of kickdown linkage where applicable.
  • Dynamometer testing.
  • If the carb is choke equipped cold, warm and hot start will be adjusted if possible.
  • Optional race fuel tuning if desired with timing settings recorded for the customer.
  • Street drivability testing for street legal cars.
  • Track support for cars attending our track rentals

Pricing

            The initial scheduling fee will be $1200. This will cover the diagnostics procedures and tuning described above. The initial fee will cover up to 8 hours of shop and tuning time. If the work exceeds that time the customer will be notified and can decide how they prefer to proceed. This fee will not include parts or additional labor if required. There are no refunds on this fee once the tuning session is scheduled. 

Important Note: As stated above, due to our extremely full schedule, if additional labor is required the customer may be required to retrieve the vehicle until the modifications can be performed or corrected.
