Tuning is the process of optimizing a vehicle's fueling, ignition, and other subsystems for peak performance. Each engine is different from the moment it leaves the factory, and will see gains from a calibration written specifically for it.
Re-writing your calibration presents associated risks to your vehicle's ECU. To mitigate these risks, we only use reputable software like HP Tuners, SCT, and Hondata for tuning vehicles equipped with factory ECUs. We also tune stand-alone ECUs such as those produced by Holley, AEM, and Megasquirt.
During your vehicle's tune appointment, we start with a Pre-Tune Check, which is included in your tuning costs. This hour-long inspection is our chance to look over common trouble areas that will affect the quality of your tune and/or dyno experience.
From there, we'll dial in your ECU's airflow calculations, so that it can accurately deliver our fueling targets. With airflow and fueling calibrated, we can start optimizing your ECU to ensure your motor produces the power it should. Whenever able, we use our in-house chassis dyno to measure power increases and to ensure your engine's timing curve is correct. After calibrating your ECU, we adjust shift settings and fine tune drivability. By the time we are done with your vehicle, it'll have all new driving characteristics.
If your vehicle's calibration isn't far off to begin with, you will primarily see gains from drivability tuning and transmission settings. If you aren't sure if you need a tune, please take us up on a free consultation! We don't want to sell you something that you won't notice or benefit from.
All appointments must be scheduled online below.
Tuning costs are based on the time it takes to complete a calibration to our quality standards. To offer a predictable flat rate price for our tunes, they have been broken into tiers. Additional licensing costs may apply.
The highest tier your vehicle applies to will dictate the cost of your tune.
Tier 1: Stock and bolt-on vehicles
What is Included in an OnKill Tune?
VIP Upgrade ($150)
Vehicles must meet the following requirements or we may opt to street tune instead:
Gas Vehicles Only (No Diesels)
RWD Vehicles can not exceed 16 Ft from front of contact patch on the front tires to the rearmost point of the vehicle (bumper or trailer hitch)
Tires that will be on the roller must be the same circumference around and must measure 6 Ft 9 in or less from the outside of one tire to the oitside of the other tire.
Break- In Tunes
Break-In Tunes ($250) are available as part of the OnKill VIP Upgrade.
We offer $250 retunes within 6 months of your OnKill VIP Tune.
Stand Alone ECUs
This pricing aligns with your vehicle assuming it can already start and run. If it does not Start and run, there will be a $250 setup fee on top of your tune costs.
We support many other makes and models. To find out more about your vehicle's specific licensing and software options and costs, please schedule a free consultation.
What Octane should I run?
We take a nonrefundable $100 deposit at the time of scheduling online for a dyno tune. This deposit goes towards your total tune costs.
All appointments are first come first serve. Until a deposit is paid, shop space will not be held for any vehicles.
