    Introducing SpecTune - Your Performance, Your Way



    SpecTune unlocks the true performance of your vehicles engine through advanced ECU Tuning resulting in an increase to vehicle power and torque safely throughout the entire RPM range. This unique process is accomplished by calibrating how the ECU communicates to the engines vital components to provide a true performance experience.

    We employ an extensive process in developing vehicle software

    Record thousands of datalogs from the vehicle in its factory state across all types of applications including controlled dyno cell, road driving, track racing and drag racing. Datalogs provide real time feedback of engine data including boost, air fuel ratio, ignition timing, intake air temperatures and hundreds more. Datalogs and Factory ECU algorithm is then studied.
    ECU coding development. Before we start increasing engine performance we must understand exactly how the factory ECU works. SpecTune engage with industry leading software which gives us access to 100% of the code in the ECU so nothing is missed, everything is considered. Having complete access to 100% of the ECU gives us a huge advantage over our competitors which can be restricted to only a few maps given to them by poor 3rd party software.
    Performance development is started. As we slowly start calibrating all vital engine components to achieve increases in power and torque we strictly adopt the OEM safety mechanism code as used by the factory to ensure reliability and longevity of engine components. This process is carried out with factory hardware and then a variety of aftermarket hardware inlcluding Cold Air Intakes, Exhaust systems, upgraded fuel parts, intercoolers, DSG tunes and race fuel.
    After we’re happy with our results the vehicle is tested in multiple environments to ensure optimized performance is achieved no matter what the driving conditions. Any fine tuning calibration will take place at this point and be retested.
    SpecTune software for your vehicle platform is released and ready to enjoy.
    Key points:

    -30% average increase in Power and Torque + better throttle response
    -Tuned specifically to your vehicle
    -Choose your power delivery type
    -Option to switch between tune types in the comfort of your home or workplace
    -Tuned to suit Australian conditions

    Congratulations Ben. Everything about this from concept to execution has the user in mind. We were so impressed with the website and device last night...everything is considered and done properly.

    Awesome leap forward for #tarmacengineering (IG it already)

    Congrats on getting this up and running. I'm sure the feedback is going to be very positive.
    Liking the branding too.
    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.

    I will be watching this space for sure!! I already have the APR tune, if I go with SpecTune do I have to go back to HP to return the ECU back to stock or you can overwrite it? Thanks Ben.

    The long wait is over and it's finally here, I have been so excited about this product and the fact that you have developed it by listening to others and providing a real need for everyday enthusiast owners.
