- Custom basemaps are available for a wide variety of vehicles including; Mazda Miata, OBD1/OBD2 Honda/Acura, Lexus, Toyota, Nissan and many more running on various ECU platforms. A complete list of parts installed on your car and engine will need to be supplied to ensure basemap accuracy (displacement, fuel injector brand and size, fuel pump, turbo/supercharger used, target boost pressure, fuel octane rating, and anything else that will help).
- A basemap is intended to be used to fire up your car and run to a point where you can check for fuel, oil or other fluid leaks and load it on a trailer or driven very gently to a professional tuner to be fully tuned. Do not attempt to do wide open throttle pulls as fueling and spark maps will more than likely not be optimum and may cause damage to your vehicle. We are not responsible for damage, injury or death to you, your car, or public property as a result of misuse of the basemap.
- Some cars are easier to make basemaps for simply out of familiarity with them. The basemap will be emailed to you after payment has been confirmed. If your basemap has issues or fails to fire up the car, we will make the necessary adjustments and email a new basemap to you so long as the issue is with the basemap.
- Remote tuning in its simplest form involves me logging into your laptop computer which is connected to your vehicle’s ECU from anywhere on this planet.

- In order to be able to remote tune your vehicle quickly and properly, it is expected that your vehicle would be mechanically and electronically sound prior to the start of the tuning. At minimum, the vehicle MUST be fitted with a functional wideband oxygen sensor, however other monitoring gauges such as oil pressure, oil temp, coolant pressure etc, are highly recommended. A solid internet connection is also critical to allowing efficient use of remote tuning time.
