HG MOTORSPORTS TUNING
Dyno tuning is an art, no matter what anyone will tell you. Each vehicle is unique even off the show room floor and they have their small differences, though minor, they are different. Small aspects as production date and the tooling used will create slight differences during the build process, while temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, fuel quality and the brand of fuel being used will all effects the vehicle when driving. But the one key factor that creates the largest difference is the driver behind the wheel, everyone is different and everyone has their own unique way of driving and that is our focus point when we customize a tune.
Taking every aspect into consideration and planning for the worse is usually how one would create what is called a base map, shelf map or OEM (original equipment manufacturer) map. Though these maps work well for the standard vehicle, this usually leaves quite a bit of room on the table in regards to fuel economy, torque and power. Of course adjusting simple things such as ignition advance, fuel control and air flow to the engine will allow for improvements and create a larger horsepower or torque number it does not necessarily take into account the potential of the vehicle, atmospheric conditions or the varying styles of driving each person experiences.
A customized map, not only offers improved power and torque figures on a dyno chart but also takes into account the drivability of the vehicle on and off the track. The final dyno numbers are only about 20% of any tune we provide, and we take into account your particular driving style and the true ability of the vehicle. Small things such as engine response in an out of a corner in any gear, under any load and *any atmospheric condition are considered when tuning a vehicle. While varying loads of throttle input offer a much wider foot to throttle control, not just an ON/OFF switch but a system for dialing in those corners at the track or determining the friction point of your tires, cold, warm or hot.
We believe consistent, reliable and smooth are what make for a winning combination, more so than anything else. Note we did not say power or torque, as we have created custom tunes with less peak power but a smoother, more controllable and consistent feel which makes for a tune that not only wins on the track but off the track. As with anything, as the electronics of the world advance so must the professional tuners and our staff continue to grow through education, firsthand experience and listening to the customers’ requests, so we may apply, develop a customized tune for your vehicle that is truly a work of art.
*Atmospheric Conditions Considered
- Temperature: 0 – 120 Degrees Fahrenheit
- Elevation: 0 – 14110 Vertical Feet
Switzer P800 GT-R Tuning Project
To help with the flow and sound we also added the Switzer’s 90 mm, stainless-steel exhaust system made of the highest-quality 304 stainless steel. Great quality, terrific sound, and head-turning looks are only part of this exhaust’s appeal. This Kit takes an already stellar platform and pushes it to the edge of being a comfortable street car with plenty of power. The final results are an additional 182 ft/lbs of TQ and 220.9 peak HP
