Practical Standalone Tuning
Learn to Tune your Standalone ECU, Start to Finish
Want to learn how to tune your standalone ECU from start to finish with or without a dyno? This course is the perfect place to gain and apply that knowledge with step by step guidance.
Whether you have a MoTeC, Link, AEM, Fueltech or any other ECU - it doesn't matter. This course will teach you the HPA 10 step process that will apply to your ECU, and your engine. Using this process you can reach peak power and torque, while still retaining the reliability you need from your engine.
As a rule, to get the most from your engine, a quality dyno is the best place to perform your tuning. This allows the tuner to simulate load on the engine, while simultaneously measuring all of the key metrics we need to monitor to optimise the tune.
But - it's a fact that not everyone has access to a dyno. The detailed road tuning section in the course combats this, by teaching you the road tuning processes and techniques to ensure an optimized tune - whether you have access to a dyno or not.
Even if you understand the principles of EFI tuning, tuning on a dyno or the road for the first time adds another element of learning. This course will give you the necessary skills to tune any engine from start to finish - whether it be on a dyno, or the black stuff. In particular you will learn:
- How to configure your ECU to suit the engine
- What numbers to put in the fuel and ignition tables before you start
- How to get your engine running for the first time
- How to use the dyno to control load and engine speed
- How to tune the fuel map in steady state
- Driving Techniques for road tuning
- How to tune fuel and ignition using the dyno or road/track
After completing this course you will have the confidence and skills required to properly calibrate your standalone ECU on the dyno or road/track. You will learn HPA’s '10 Step Process’ which will take you through a tuning job from start to finish, ensuring you don’t miss any critical stages.
This course assumes an understanding of EFI tuning fundamentals. If you are new to tuning, we recommend you start with our EFI Tuning Fundamentals course before taking this one.
