    HP Tuners - learning how to use it

    What’s the best way to learn tuning with HP Tuners? Is there a online course, PDF download or work shop you can attend to learn?

    thanks

    There's a few online courses like HP Academy, some free ones on YouTube and some paid ones on Vimeo from Matt Happel and the like.
    The HP Tuners forum is supposed to be decent too.

    Check out Goat Rope Garage on YouTube.

        Buy a car and tune it for 6months. Then modify it and tune it again for 6 months etc etc
        GM and ford stuff it fairly straight forward. Euro stuff is weird

              remote tuning on an autobahn??? Is that the tuning equivalent of a crank bearing inside another crank bearing?

                eh, wouldve thought thats the ideal tuning environment? endless road, low, mid, full throttle, lots of time, endless runs, great cooling, realistic conditions etc

                  I was thinking you meant full throttle live on-the-fly tuning with all the dodginess of internet connections, lost packets, phone data, bricked ecus from failed data flashes, etc. I see you mean the environment, which as you say very different to a dyno room.

                          I'm not even going to pretend to understand HP tuners! It does things so differently when compared to a typical aftermarket ECU, that none of my knowledge crosses over yet.

                          It's tuning an OEM firmware, which wasn't programmed to be continually tuned so it seems a little convoluted to do some simple tasks. They also tend to contain a lot of redundant maps for manual/auto/sports/towing modes which adds a layer of complexity.
