Required Hardware:

  1. A HPtuners module with credits is required. If you do not own one you can purchase a module w/credits here - Remote Tuning Electronics

Documentation 

  1. All remote tuning customers must complete the "Remote Tune Checklist" and email it to mike@ostdyno.com.

Remote Tuning Policies

                      Remote tuning requires involvement on the part of the remote tuning customer that would not normally occur with an in-house dyno tuning session. Below is a summary of requirements and policies regarding remote tuning:

  • Basic computer knowledge is required to utilize this process.
  • Familiarity with sending/receiving email, adding and opening email attachments, installing software, etc. is necessary.
  • All emails should be directed to mike@ostdyno.com
  • Please do not call our shop for remote tuning updates or revisions. This service is separate from services provided at our shop. 
  • Understanding of the data logging process, reading and loading tunes. We do have videos reviewing this process on our YouTube Channel.
  • Data logs attached to an email should contain the name of the tune revision that the data log was run on.
  • Emails sent with a data log should  be short, descriptive and only contain one data log unless multiple logs are requested by us or are required to resolve a problem.
  • Do not send multiple emails in the same day unless you have purchased the "Titanium" level of service.
  • Tune revisions for "Gold Level" service will be replied to in the order received and within the time period described in my email signature.

Note: Re-tuning (injector change, cam change, fuel change etc.) for both GM and Mopar is an additional charge.

     Highly Modified Forced Induction - This category is for aggressively modified vehicles with both forced induction and an aftermarket long duration cam.
            IMPORTANT: For email tuning customers with this type of vehicle, if engine modifications are being made during the tuning process, or there are extensive modifications,
                                this will often require more than the included 8 revisions. Additional revisions can be purchased if needed using the "Additional Revisions" pricing options below.
