    AutoCal Tip of the Week!

    AutoCal Tip of the Week! V2 Edition! Since we also provide tuning for customers who have a V2, and get asked a lot about how to data log with it, I thought I would share the steps here: - First you will need to have the V7.5 program downloaded to your computer. - Next you will need to save the PID file that we will send you, to your laptop. Plug the V2 into your vehicle and then the laptop as well. - Open the V7.5 Scan program. Turn the ignition on and in the Scan program, click File and then Connect, then select the controller type and hit OK. Then hit File again, then Open, Open PID selection file, and then select the file from wherever you saved it. - Finally the PIDs will pop up and then you can hit record. We think it is easiest to data log with a laptop and V2, but you can also data log with the V2 by itself, I will cover those steps next time.

    AutoCal Tip of the Week!

    AutoCal Tip of the Week! Here are some examples of FAQs that we receive in regards to the AutoCal: Does the AutoCal come with any tunes? No, the AutoCal does not come with any tunes. In order for us to provide your custom tunes via email we will need a 20-30 minute data log, along with a copy of your stock tune file(s). If you are adding a supercharger, or mod where you would need a tune first, we would just need a copy of the tune file(s) from the vehicle, and we will use that to get a base tune to you, to get you up and running safely, and then have you data log. Can I tune other vehicles with the AutoCal? Yes, you can tune up to 221 vehicles with the AutoCal. We can provide tuning for 98 and newer GM gas vehicles. You can also use it to tune Duramax engines, with a diesel tuner of your choosing. Are there multiple tunes that I can change on the fly? Unlike diesel tuning, with gas tuning, all your changes, and gains are all addressed on one tune. You can have a separate octane tune, for example 89/87, or 91+ and you can switch between those. Is it compatible with an Apple (Mac)? No, you will need a laptop or desktop with Windows. Some customers have had success running Bootcamp, or Parallels on their Mac, which will allow you to run Windows. Let us know if you have any questions. We will be happy to help.

    Whipple 2.9L Supercharger for Silverado SS

    I spoke to Justin and he mentioned we pulled our description from Whipple's website. We have questioned them on it and it is in fact a 2.3L, not a 2.9L for that model.

    Hello Jim, we would be happy to help with the Whipple and tuning. We will definitely confirm the kit, and if it will work for your vehicle before we place the order. The best person to go over the kit with and pricing with you would be our tuner, Justin. He is available via email only. If you want to PM me the email address you sent your message from I can confirm if we received it. Thanks

    AutoCal Tip of the Week!

    AutoCal Tip of the Week! Want to transfer a data log you just recorded, or transfer a copy of your stock tune files you just read out from your vehicle, from your AutoCal to your computer, so you can email them in to us to receive your custom tune files? Are you receiving a File Sys Full error? If so, then you need to open your EFI Explorer program, (not to be confused with the Scan and Tune Program). With the AutoCal plugged into your computer and the EFILive Explorer program open, you will be able to transfer your files from the AutoCal to your tuning files folder on your computer to send to us. You will also, within the EFI Explorer program, have the ability to delete your files off the AutoCal to free up space. If you have any questions you can email us [email protected] or call 877-809-4070.
