Tapout Tuning stands apart from other tuners by providing a consultative, transparent approach to the calibration that is customized to the customer’s needs. There was very good communication throughout the entire process, always with the focus on meeting my personal goals. The emphasis was on safety, and I greatly appreciate that all of the factory mechanisms for protecting the engine are left intact, and that alternate safety protocols that were not part of the GM calibration were also implemented. My goals were optimization, safety, longevity, and a wide, flat powerband. I got all of those things, along with a boost in fuel economy by way of his protocols for optimizing efficiency of the LF4. Scott was able to add a significant amount of power without sacrificing driveability, while also increasing my fuel economy by almost 2mpg.
An added benefit was how much I learned during this process. Scott always took time to advise me and help me understand the changes he was making. And by scanning the car myself via VCM Suite, I have multiple files available that detail exactly how the car operated under multiple driving conditions and calibrations. I see things like KR, fuel trims, AFR, timing advance, IAT, and many others and Scott helped me to understand what they meant. That was a bonus I did not expect, and is now something I can do anytime to see how the engine is operating.
I can’t think of how a remote tuning experience could go better than this. This was a HUGE improvement on a tuning experience I had in person, from all angles. Can’t recommend Scott enough!
