E-Tuning process explained

 

E-tuning is the process of tuning a car over the internet.

 

  • Requirements 
  • I do not tune catless cars
  • 4 week time limit. Timer starts on the purchase date.
  • Do not purchase the tune if you are still buying parts or still waiting on shipping information
  • Do not purchase the tune if you are going on deployment in a week
  • Do not purchase the tune if you do not have a safe place to do wide open throttle pulls or have a dyno to rent / use
  • Do not purchase the tune if you do not have email
  • Do not purchase the tune if you do not have a computer to transfer maps and logs to/from the car's computer
  • It is your (The customer/Client) responsibility to send me datalogs gathered safely from either on the street or from the Dyno. 
  • Renting a dyno for remote tuning is the sole responsibility of the customer.

 

 

Basic Process

 

  • Order tune 5 days before you plan to install your parts, this ensures you already have a map for your mods before they are even installed. 
  • I will email you my base map and instructions (Domestics with hptuners I would require an oem read of the ecm/tcm/fpcm first).
  • Download the map to your laptop and flash it to the vehicle
  • Perform the requested datalogs & email them to me.
  • I analyze the datalogs, make changes to the mapping and email you back a new revision. 
  • This process is repeated 5-10 times (sometimes more, sometimes less).  

 

 

 

 

Purchase E-Tune

 

  • Store: Kagan Tuning – Kaganader Tuning 
  • My suggestion is to purchase the toon 5 days before you plan on installing the parts.
  • The goal is to have the map in your possession the day you start installing parts within 5 days. 95% of the time maps are sent in less than 24 hours.  4% of the time life happens and things come up and it takes 3 days for me to send a map. 1% of the time it takes me 5 days to send a map. So if you order on Friday night, Saturday or Sunday then you will have the map by Monday latest Wednesday. So do NOT install your parts, then buy the toon and expect to have your map 5 seconds later. This does NOT mean your car needs to be stock to start the process. If you already have a map for mods that are on your car, you do NOT need to remove them. The point of getting MY map before installing NEW parts is so that you are not stuck with a car you can't drive until you get a map from me. I am simply asking that you plan accordingly so you don't end up with a car you can't drive.

 

 

Map transfer & flashing

 

  • Download Hptuner's ~ Ecutek Software ~ standalone software from there Website & install the program
  • Plug Hptuners ~ Ecutek ~ standalone cable into computer
  • Open Software
  • Click Updates, then click Check for Firmware Updates and install updates (each software has its own specifics to be done)
  • Download the oem map from the vehicle (Hptuners) (Ecutek phone app send car info to me, the tuner) and send it to my email  (DO NOT RENAME FILE)
  • Select map file that is emailed back into AP Manager
  • Plug laptop to the car with cable and flash map
  • Select the logging parameters listed in the instruction sheet (or sent to you)
  • Do the instructed logging (1st log would be idle for 5 minutes, 2nd log is usually a 5 minute cruising log and a single 3rd gear log)
  • Rename the logs to cruiselog01 and WOT3rd01
  • Email me the logs over to Sales@kaganadertuning.com (or with ecutek upload it to ecutek cloud with there Ecu Connect phone app)
  • This process is repeated 5-10 times
