iA-Performance offers one of the industry's best Email tuning (E-Tune) services. Our maps are a culmination of extensive dyno and street tuning efforts from over a decade of experience. It all began when we became COBB's first Arizona ProTuner in 2005. Since then our tuning efforts have grown to a global scale, yet we ensure each customer receives 'the personal touch' as if they were here in our home town, Boulder Colorado. After all, what good is a product if you do not receive the customer support to go along with it. Whether you're looking for a high altitude tune, or one that won't detonate the hot desert, we have you covered!
How an E-Tune Works
Upon purchase of (1) iA-Performance E-Tune, we will email you a map to upload to the vehicle via your AccessPORT (AP) or Open Source software. Note 1 map service per E-Tune credit, such as a Break-in, Performance, or Gas Saver map. New engine owners will need to purchase 2 credits, 1 for the Break-in and 1 for the Performance map. Additional map credits, for the same car, are available at a discounted price of $100. To receive the discounted multiple map rate, simply add it through the drop down menu below by selecting Ƈ Additional E-Tune Credit.' Furthermore, the discounted rate ($100) for additional tuning credits will apply for the lifetime the car is owned by the same person.
2. Data Log
Using your AP or Open Source software, data log the vehicle and email the .CSV files back to iA-Performance for review. Instructions on how to data log are included with every initial map, as well as by request.
3. Review Data Logs
Once received, the review process of data log files will allow us to make additional adjustments to the ECU file. A revised file will then be created and sent back by email.
Steps 2 and 3, will continue until a finalized map is generated. On average, a finalized map is reached between 3-5 attempts. Now keep in mind, we are not here to hurry along the tune like our competitors. If the tuning process takes more than 5 revisions, then so be it since our goal is a well rounded tune and an overall positive experience. Based on our tuning history, our first map is almost always guaranteed to start and run the motor. There is of course the exception where mechanical or electrical gremlins lie.
Our highly skilled tuner, Stephen, not only has the knowledge of tuning, but also has a Subaru mechanic background stemming back to 2002! If issues arise, as they often do with modified vehicles, he will be able to walk you through trouble shooting ideas and steps. This is a service hard to find amongst the tuning community. We've even heard stories where tuners will simply stop helping the customer based on their vehicles predicament! A bit of advise to all turbo charged customers, be prepared to perform a "Boost Leak Test." Hit up google for various How-To tutorials on this test
- 1 Tuning Credit is valid for the original modification list and for 60 days from date of purchase.
