Chris' ProCharged 2011 Camaro SS on our DynoJet 224xLC
When it comes time to get your vehicle tuned, the popular saying rings true: you get what you pay for. Do you REALLY want the cheapest tune you can find?
In business since 2003 and handling 100% of our tuning here in-house since 2012, it's safe to say that we've got PLENTY of the most important factor when tuning: EXPERIENCE. We've tuned hundreds of GM EFI vehicles from mild to wild, including multiple 1000+HP forced induction setups using all GM PCM/ECU's in practically EVERY vehicle platform. We're not just talking about street cars, either: we support multiple drag racers, road racers and even drift racers.
When we strap your vehicle down to our dyno for a tune, it won't come off until we've arrived at the setup that allows for the most horsepower and torque without sacrificing safety and reliability.
"Our tunes are so much more than just a dyno session to dial in the wide open throttle performance."
- Jonathan Atkins, Owner & Chief Tuner
Unless your vehicle is stock or very slightly modified (bolt-ons), we require the vehicle be here on-site for at least two days. Why? A proper tune can simply not be performed "while a customer waits" on an application that has been anything more than slightly modified. After the dyno session is over, our tunes include multiple cold starts that allow us to dial-in how the vehicle starts, as well as fine-tune the Air/Fuel Ratio during warmup. Our tunes also include significant time on the street tuning shift points for the best feel, economy and performance at wide-open-throttle.
A Tick Performance Custom Computer Tune offers significant increases in horsepower, torque, driveability and in many cases fuel efficiency not only for modified cars, but even on factory stock vehicles!
Satisfaction Guarantee: we guarantee that you'll be happy with your custom tune from Tick Performance, and we stand behind our work 100%. This means that if you have any issue at all with your tune, bring the car back and we'll check it out for free.
If the issue requires your vehicle going back on our dyno, we'll do that for free, too. Even though our DynoJet 224xLC is capable of being loaded to simulate real world driving, sometimes the drag strip presents issues that can't be emulated on any dyno. If the issue only occurs at the racetrack, we'll go to the racetrack and work on it there.
No "re-strap" fees. No "track visit" fees. No BS. You're going to be 100% satisfied with your Tick Performance Custom Computer Tune when we're done; if you're not satisfied, we're not done.
If we performed the build on your vehicle or engine, our tune pricing varies based on the modifications that have been performed:
|Upon request, for any Tick Performance Tuning customer, we will travel to a drag strip in our area and perform "fine-tuning", which could include monitoring the air/fuel ratio with our wideband, dialing-in the shift points of electronically operated transmissions, etc. This is a one-time service that every Tick Performance tuning customer can take advantage of for no additional charge!|
Many customers get Tick Tuned and then modify their vehicles further later on down the road, requiring more tuning. As long as our tune wasn't modified by a third party after we finished, we offer re-tuning for new modifications at a discounted rate:
If we did not perform the build on your vehicle (or we did not build its engine) our tune pricing is as follows:
The $125.00 per hour or $800.00 per day charge will include labor for small changes or repairs performed by the tuner, including changing spark plugs, fuel filters, repairing exhaust leaks, etc. Parts not included. To minimize your expense, please follow our pre-tune checklist, outlined below.
A high quality, timely dynotune here at Tick Performance can be performed only a vehicle that is mechanically sound. Before calling us to schedule an appointment, please perform the following checklist to eliminate many possible issues that could arise during the dynotuning process. Maintenance and repairs are not included in the price of a dynotune, but if needed we can perform any maintenance and/or troubleshooting prior to your dynotune at our regular hourly labor rate. You will be notified of any recommended (or required) parts and/or labor to make your vehicle dyno-ready before any work is performed.
Before your vehicle goes on our DynoJet, please make sure:
Lastly, make sure your Nitrous and/or Methanol Injection systems are tested and functional. Our tuning prices do not include repairs made to these systems in order for them to function properly. We reserve the right to refuse any vehicle deemed unsafe (or any vehicle with mechanical faults) from the tuning process until the issues have been repaired.
If you're not wanting any tuning but you're curious what kind of power your car makes, we offer a special rate for you:
If you're wanting to do your own tuning but you don't have your own dyno and you'd like to rent ours, we offer that as well:
We require dyno rentals be scheduled in advance (the earlier the better.)
