    Yes, by the dealer...........................

    No need for assholiness. Then again, maybe you can't help it.

    My man, I was ready to face palm myself too thinking you weren't understanding he is saying the OV Tune is noticeably better with a detectable difference from the DAP tune....until you clarified. Sometimes things are lost in translation on the internet.

    Anyway I'm also coming from the DAP tune. As stated, DAP > stock. But OV Tune >> DAP.

    I read earlier that it isn't detectable by the dealer but that you can simply flash back to stock if you need to take it in for some reason.

    I'll also be switching from DAP to OV in the coming weeks. I'll let you know what I think.

    I have read the blog posts, website comments and FB stuff - cant find promised HP gains. I also see too many people waiting for tweaks, updates, troubleshooting... as with many things brand new, I may sit this one out a bit longer until the bumps are smoothed out.

    Might be a good idea. The motor portion of the tune is fantastic. The rest is in development. Either way you go, you'll still end up patiently waiting.

    Morning everyone.
    I will be sending out a lot of updated tunes for folks next week, and we have patches done now for more ECUs.
    thank you everyone.

    @OVTune If I install long tube headers, will you need to make adjustments to the tune?? I have heard some tunes cause a lean condition with long tube headers

    Take your time. We will be around :). The first post of this thread has our dyno results vs a truck previously tuned by another tuner often mentioned in this thread.

    We cannot promise any exact HP gain. Any tuner that promises you get X amount of HP with their tune...you should walk away from. We usually say you can expect to see around 10-15HP gain on a stock truck, and with our gearlocking, you can see on the first post the torque potential vs non gearlock is ...massive.

    Yes you will need your tune adjusted



    Yes, if it is a ECU we have finished up

    How do we know our ECU ID number? I have been digging through my messages through Zendesk and I do not see an ECU ID number mentioned in my data from Zendesk.

    When you click identify it’s listed in that output

    May also be called calibration

    edit: I’m too slow and @OVTune beat me to it lol

    @OVTune #5221 When we get our base tune, or updated tune. Is there a reason why you do not include in the email the features that are included in the tune, AND how to use that feature??? Like what button does what! Half of this forum is clogged up with people wondering what they have and how to use it. I got my base tune in December, but have NO idea whats included in it whats supposed to work and whats not or how to use it. I have emailed you several times, and used this forum several times to ask and have gotten no answer. I dont understand why you dont list in the tune email the features your tune includes from the list of available features for all users benefits.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Is it safe to data log with the base tune and new LT headers or do you need to send me an update before I data log???

    Placing my deposit this week for the Magnuson. I guess they dumped Bully Dog recently and now utilize HP Tuners. You guys have much more experience than I do regarding tuning - will this complicate things for me when I attempt to switch to OV Tune later on?

    I'll make sure to add it.
    A lot of information is actually on our blog posts too. But I think most peo


    I'll make sure to add it into emails, and add it to the product page.
    A lot of info is on our website blog posts too.


    if you want us to tune it, purchase the version / kit from them that doesn't include any tuning option, otherwise you will be paying for a HP Tuners cable that you won't use.
