JANNETTY RACING HPTUNERS TUNING INSTRUCTIONS FORD

Thank you for purchasing JRE custom tuning.

Your purchase includes a maximum of 10 revisions, I often spend too much time diagnosing installation errors so we have to cap it somewhere fair for both parties.

Pricing for additional time will be custom, based on what is left to be done and must be discussed with Ted via email at that time.

NOTE, any part changes during the tuning session require either an upcharge or new session purchased, Custom pricing based on what changed, and at what stage in the tuning session to be discussed with Ted via email.

When you receive your HPtuners MPVI2 you will go to HPtuners.com follow the included instructions to install HPtuners VCM suite BETA software, on your laptop, create an account, register your MPVI2.

Make sure you download the BETA version which is currently 4.11.xxx

After this is done you will resync device under the Help Menu in the HPtuners Editor.

In some instances when firmware updates are available your device will be updated at this time.

You are almost ready to read out your stock file.

When reading your cars stock computers, it is strongly advised to have a (10 amp) battery charger hooked up to your cars charging lugs under the hood.

Make sure you do not have any electronic devices plugged in to the car.

Make sure you have internet connection to your lap top.

Now connect the device to your OBD2 Port under the dash, connect the USB cable to your device and laptop, turn the key to the run position or push button to put the car in run mode.

In the HPtuners Editor select Read vehicle, another window will pop up with 2 buttons, GATHER INFO and READ, Select GATHER INFO so you can see what you are reading.

Proof of purchase a copy of the invoice or at least the invoice number.

If you have not prepaid for your custom tune please let me know and I can bill you via paypal once I have your stock tune file and all this information.

Note do not use attachments to send info.

I will create a custom tune which you will again save to mydocuments/hptuners/logs and tunes folder.

You will open editor, and open the JRE custom tune file.

When flashing your cars stock computers, it is strongly advised to have a 10 amp battery charger hooked up to your cars charging lugs under the hood or directly to the battery.

Make sure you do not have any electronic devices plugged in to the car.

Select write calibration, which is the default setting, unless I instruct you otherwise.

After the flashing process is done, you will be prompted to cycle the key, turn the ignition off for 10 seconds, then you can start the car.

I may also include a logging Channel list and a Layout with your custom tune file, you will save this to mydocuments/hptuners/vcmscanner/channels folder and Layout folder respectively.

Open HPtuners Scanner, from within the scanner top left of the channel list you can open this channel configuration, then from Layout open the layout configuration file and you are ready to begin logging.

You will need a wide band AFR gauge for the full throttle portion of the logging/tuning we recommend the AEM wide band we sell https://jannettyracing.com/products/aem-electronics-x-series-wideband-uego-air-fuel-sensor-controller-gauge

Adding an AEM wide band channel this video is awesome https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozJz-pNFCuo&t=28s

Once you get your channel list set up SAVE IT to mydocuments/hptuners/vcmscanner/channels folder. Engine off Key on, connect to vehicle, from within the scanner there is a green button labeled Vehicle Controls, open it then go to the fuel tab and Reset ALL ADAPTIVES, some cars do not have this option, just follow the prompts.

Start the car, you will drive the car in the manner I prescribe in my email i.e. light throttle or full throttle.

BEFORE LOGGING WITH THE CAR IDLING, FOOT ON THE BRAKE YOU MUST HOLD THE TRACTON CONTROL BUTTON DOWN FOR 8 SECONDS TO DISABLE THE TRACTION CONTROL SO IT DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH LOGGING.

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE THE AIR CONDITIONING OR DEFROSTER IS OFF SO THERE ARE NO TORQUE REDUCTION REQUESTS.

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE THE CAR IS FULLY WARMED UP BEFORE LOGGING.


Step 1, light throttle logs, drive the car about 20 minutes, cycling up and down the rpm scale from Idle through 5000 rpm as many times as you can, Use as light a throttle as needed to achieve rpm
Smooth RPM sweeps are best.

 

All on ONE long log please! Note do not send multiple logs unless I ask for them.

 

Manual cars you can do this in lower gears to stay within the speed limits your call.

 

Automatic cars use paddle mode, use the lower gears Idle through 5000 rpm

 

Boosted Cars; Do NOT go in to boost until I give the OK to do so.

 

Stop and save the data log as (Your Name log 1.hpl) etc.

E-mail me the log files along with your Full name, Address, Phone number(s), and all vehicle information. I.E. year, make, model, engine, transmission, and a list of performance modifications, brands and parts number are required, octane burned.

 

I need this information with every log also please include any comments you think might be helpful.

 

Please do not assume I will know who you are by your forum screen name, what kind of car you drive, or what your mods are. I deal with 50-100 people per day so I must have all of your info right in front of me in ONE email so I can properly write or refine your tune.

 

PLEASE INCLUDE COMPLETE EMAIL CHAIN.

 

Your cooperation in reading, understanding and following these directions will make this a very pleasant experience for the both of us!

 

WOT logs, When I ask for a WOT Log, typically you will select a gear like 3rd in a manual or 4th in an auto, rolling at 1500 rpm you would go WOT to 4500 for the first log then I will instruct you from there after each revision.
