:: Altituned Custom ECU Tuning
Altituned Custom ECU Tuning
Call for price
Manufactured by: Avalon Motorsports
The most versatile, potent, real time tuning solution ever created. Inspired by studies on the performance of off-the-shelf software on vehicles with unique hardware at specific elevations,
will revolutionize tuning as we know it!
Imagine being able to upload a custom file developed specifically for your vehicle, directly to its ECU (Engine Control Unit). Based on your modifications, altitude and performance goals, the appropriate programming will be installed, ensuring that your Audi, Volkswagen or Porsche will perform at its full potential.
Offered exclusively through Avalon Motorsports,
is unique engine management tuning that utilizes real-time data logging to make necessary revisions. We are able to 'flash', or directly burn the the custom files on most cars 1999.5 and newer. With this flash feature you will be able to purchase multiple programs (depending on model and year) and switch through them directly from your cruise control stalk. This gives us much wider range of tuning capability and allows you, the customer, a more broad range of performance based on your needs at any given time.
Here are some
Q: What are the benefits of Altituned?
In most cases, having a file written for you car specifically allows us to control what the ECU asks for from the engine and subsequently let's us ensure that all of the operating parameters are both safe for your car and optimized to achieve a level of performance that is superior to anything else on the market.
How is it different than an off-the-shelf software?
OTS (off-the-shelf) is a term that relates to tuning that is designed for one particular car's ECU, with that car's hardware and at that car's elevation. Most of the time that single developed file, or files, are applied to every car in the world with the matching ECU part number, regardless of elevation, climate, and vehicle specific hardware. Because of this the operation of that program must be general and watered down enough to ensure that there are no ill-effects in terms of the way the vechicle runs. Thus, there is almost always headroom to be taken advantage of to allow your car to function more optimally. Although Altituned is useful even on cars with stock turbos and exhaust, it really is of benefit on purpose built or fully custom engine set-ups, for which is it very difficult to obtain software.
Do we copy existing files?
NO. All of the Altituned files are written starting from the stock [Bosch] software and built from the ground up depending on what your vehicle demands as well as your performance goals for the car.
Is Altituned safe for my vehicle?
Yes. There are many different scenarios that are possible when tuning a car. Avalon takes a great deal of care and caution prior to installing the file to make sure that we know what your objectives are ahead of time. Some customers wish to push their cars to the limit, fully understanding the implications that may arise. Others just want a strong file(s) while maintaining a safe level of daily drive-ability. When compared to other software on the market, often times the Altituned software can actually prolong the life of your car because we know what the vehicle wants and can handle, and will program accordingly. It is quite possible that we will end up with LESS boost, BETTER fuel enrichment and BETTER timing than other software on the market.
Can I purchase multiple files and switch between them?
YES. We are now capable of flashing the files directly to your vehicle's ECU. This is a very similar process to the way you would download a program from the Internet to your home computer's hard drive. By flashing the car's ECU we also have the ability to store multiple programs, each with completely different functionality. Switching between them is simple and can be done right through the cruise control stalk "SET" button. Further instructions available by request.
What if I add new hardware, can I get the car re-tuned?
YES. In most cases we will only charge a nominal amount to re-tune or add a program to your ECU if you decide to modify hardware after we perform the initial tuning. We can also modify an existing file if necessary and depending on the situation, may be able to do so at no charge.
