Free Online Tuning Service

This service will “tune”, a mildly modified LT1 engine, using basic and fairly safe tuning techniques that I’ve learned.¬† I made it because a lot of people were asking me to help tune very simple things on their cars, and this will do the same thing.

It’s not great, hand-tuning would work much better in some cases, but it’s as good as a really basic mail-order tune if you aren’t willing to learn.

Also, this tool only generates F-Body bins!!

You can upload the bins generated with this tool to your car for free with my flashhack tool.

This does not touch automatic transmission tables or shift points, so results with an automatic transmission with a modified gear ratio may be mediocre.

If you have a large cam, aftermarket or ported heads, a 383 stroker, turbochargers, superchargers, nitrous, no maf sensor, no oxygen sensors, or want the 100% maximum performance your engine can offer, either tune it yourself by hand please contact a professional tuner!

I recommend reading the existing bin file from your ecm using the software BEFORE you flash, so you can put it back in case something goes wrong.

Vehicle Year
This is especially important when using an automatic transmission.

1994
1995

Transmission Type
Automatic
Manual

“Deleted” Equipment
Select the following check boxes to ‘tune out’ a particular item.
Delete EGR
Delete AIR Pump This doesn’t hurt even on a stock engine.
Disable Skip Shift aka CAGS (Manual Trans Only)
Disable Traction Control
Delete Air Conditioning
Delete EVAP aka Charcoal Canister Purge
Disable VATS Security System Fuel fix only, doesn’t solve VATS starter kill.

Gears
Changes in tire size can affect speedo calibration too, but it should be pretty close.
2.73 (most stock autos)
3.23
3.42 (most stock manuals)
3.73 (coming soon)
4.10

Headers
This is actually based on how far your oxygen sensors are from the stock location… so if you have special headers, choose based on o2 distance.
Stock Manifolds
“Shorty” Headers
“Midtube” Headers or longtubes with o2s that barely even required extensions
“Long-tube” Headers with o2 sensors way the hell under the car

Thermostat/Fans
Stock Thermostat, Leave it alone
Stock Thermostat, But lower fan temps a bit anyway recommended
160 Degree Thermostat

Fuel Choice
Stock 91 Gasoline or E5 (leave it alone)
E10 (10% ethanol fuel)
E85 (85% ethanol fuel) EXPERIMENTAL contact me if you want to try this

Injectors
Stock Injectors or generic 24lb/hr injectors
Accel 24lb “Black” Injectors
Generic 26lb Injectors
Generic 30lb Injectors

Heavy Throttle Fueling
Warning: These should be used only on a known healthy engine, with a good fuel pump, good fuel filter, and all sensors working properly.
Consistent wide open throttle fueling “BLM Locker”
More powerful wide open throttle fueling

Cruising Fuel
Leave non-wide open throttle fueling alone
Improve fuel economy
Slightly richer and more responsive

 

Ignition Timing
Warning: Some timing tables may be more aggressive than stock, and should only be used on a healthy engine with good quality fuel and a functional knock sensor.
Stock F-Body timing (safe for stock-like cams)
Slightly aggressive timing (for stock-like cams) (91+ Octane Recommended!)
More aggressive timing (for stock-like cams) (93+ Octane Recommended!)
Reduced timing for towing, or swapping an f-body LT1 into a fairly heavy vehicle
Safe timing for mild cams (such as comp 304 or lunati 262/270) to improve power and driveability
Safe timing for medium sized cams (such as the LT4 hot cam or cc305) to improve power and driveability

Idle
Stock F-Body Idle
Improved idle for mild cams
Rough lopey idle for mild cams
Improved idle for medium sized cams

Automatic Transmission
Stock torque converter (or manual transmission). Leave transmission tuning alone
Stock torque converter. Like a decent shift kit, improve shift firmness and raise shift points
Higher stall torque converter. Improve shift firmness, raise shift points.
