HP tuners software for LFX tuning?

I see BETA versions of this software has anybody used this and how do you like it? I have talked to Ted at Jannetty Racing and we may do this. We just need to try and communicate with the software for a remote tuning capabilities. I know I will need to go to Ted first to dyno tune than remote fine tuning from that point. We just don't know how/if the remote tuning will do yet is my understanding.

I have HPTuners, have been with them since their start basically back in ~2004/05. Great guys to deal with!!!

Anyways, yes I have tuned LFX with the HPTuners software and it worked out well. They had done some updates also for me at the same time. Just a BIG hint with the LFX (Even the 12+ V8), on any tuning, increasing the engine Torque Management little by little (By logging predicted/actual engine tq and etc source) is the way to increase power huge on these. From the factory they are not going WOT at certain conditions, even though your right foot is commanding it!

I'd love to know if the Bosch in the LLT does something similar. Of course learning much about the Bosch seems to be a pain.

Ive been using HP Tuners BETA without issue. I update it about once a month. Yes you can calibrate 2012-2013 V6 Camaros, but not earlier models.

Its a very powerful program, but you have to invest in a wideband to use it or any calibration platform correctly. Without a wideband, your just guessing and hoping you hit your numbers.

I have the HP tuners pro and a LM2 wide band, remember you will need a wide and and controller to do tuning right. I have not tuned my ZL1 yet, may use JRE tune if I do any more mods.
You will not be using the HP for Teds tune, it will be done with his handheld unit to flash your ECM.

HP is to do your own tune and Teds will not work with it. I wish it would.

Always find out the name of the pilot, just to be safe.

I just got the HP Tuner Pro Version, and a AeroForce gauge and wideband O2 sensor. I would be very appreciative of anyone with experience with this program and helping me tune my 2013 Camaro with the LFX engine.

HP Tune

Here is the catch, I had a Vmax TB, CAI intake, Vitesse Throttle Controller installed before the tune. I feel the tune improved the throttle response a little, but not as much as the VTC itself. The throttle response of the car now , is far superior to what it was stock.

i have also Vmax TB and CAI intake, have been thinking about a tune (IPF shop is 20 miles away) not sure yet only 15K on car. Course i'm also torn between how inexpensive the VTC is so even if I did not like the result it would not be a big loss

LFX tuner in Tampa Orlando Bradenton.

Unlike the V8s, on the V6 I can recalibrate the mapping of the throttle response table. Im also able to fully open the throttle blade on WOT.

I would like to take a minute to thank a few people who have been very helpful and kind to me. DynoSteve. You really woke me up to what I am getting into with the HP Tuner. And what I would still need to but. You have kept me grounded yet believing that with hard work I can learn this and become good. Phil at Tampa Tune. The conversation we had today kl installed in me that with the right guidance and dedication I can learn this and become good at it. I learned a lot of those 30-40 minutes. Thank you so much. And to Dyno Tune Motorsports I deeply appreciate your understanding of my situation and your dedication to get me the right info. Gigantic help. I can only hope that one day I too can help you guys out. Thanks again. And people go to these guys got your needs. They are all fantastic.
