Bill only schedules a few live tuning trips each year
because, frankly, there is so much that keeps him busy in
our office. At the request of many customers,
however, he has agreed to travel two or three times a
year to different locations for live tuning events.
Do I Organize a Live Tuning Event in My Area?
- First, ask around and find out if there are other
6.0L, 7.3L, 6.4L or '97-'03 F-150
truck owners in your area who are interested in having
their trucks live-tuned. To spread the word, you might
want to post on the
PHP Forum or on one or more of the
- We can street-tune trucks or dyno-tune trucks, but it's
nice to offer customers an option. If there is a dyno
available in your area, contact the owner and ask if the
dyno is available for rent and what they would charge
for a live-tuning event (plan on 2-4 days). We are
experienced in using SuperFlow, DynoJet, and Mustang
dynos. If there isn't a dyno nearby, don't worry about
it! We're flexible!
- If there seems to be enough interest (usually 8 - 12
trucks), contact us, and let us know! We'll work with
you to coordinate a live tuning event in your area.
- The event organizer will be compensated for his time
with a discount on his live tuning session; please
contact us for details.
We DO NOT
charge a flat fee for live tuning. If your truck is
stock or only has mild modifications, it will take less
time to tune. You should not have to pay the same price
as a person with a heavily modified truck. We only charge a customer based on the time
Bill spends in his truck.
Much Does Live Tuning Cost?
- There is a minimum $250,
non-refundable deposit on each truck -- paid in advance of
the event -- and will include the first 2 hours of tuning.
This is to help cover the time to set up the equipment; in
the case of dyno tuning, this also covers the time to get
the vehicle strapped on the dyno.
- Each subsequent hour will be $125, payable at the time
of tuning. Payments may be made in cash or by credit
card. Depending on the extent of modifications, tuning
usually takes anywhere from 2 hours for a lightly
modified truck to 4-5 hours for a heavily modified
truck. The cost for live tuning drops to $100/hr
for customers who prefer to travel to our location to
have their trucks dyno tuned or street tuned.
- Customers who sign up for live tuning may purchase a
blank 6-position chip before or at the event for $200. We
just need to know in advance so that we know how many to
- If a dyno is available for live tuning, the customer is
responsible for covering charges incurred for its use/rental.
- PHP will be responsible for covering their expenses
including travel, lodging, and meals.
