More HP Tuners nGauges are headed to Amazon Tuning Solutions!!

Linn and Rick Erdman were one of the first vendors for this awesome device that has become wildly popular.
It’s a gauge, a data logger AND a tuner…and with The HP Tuners version, you get to choose who tunes your car.

ATS will enter their 2016 NMRA season with a VMP Supercharged 2015 Mustang GT, tuned with HP Tuners using the nGauge and fueled by Gulf Mach 116.
ATS can serve up custom tuning for your S550 with the nGauge.

They have also brought on Tristan Lester as Miss ATS to be the face of the brand. Look for more photos soon from her, but here are a few teasers…

2011-2016 Mustang Tuning with ATS and HP Tuners nGauge

Here at ATS, we work with a host of software suites, but our favorite for the Coyote platform is HP Tuners, particularly with the availability of the HP Tuners nGauge. This device gives the enthusiast or racer so much more than a handheld programmer–which face it–simply sits in your glovebox until you’re ready to change tunes. The HP Tuners nGauge is a programmer, fully customizable gauge, shift light, datalogger–with many other cool features wrapped into one affordable, high quality device (And it’s made here in the USA!).

The HP Tuners nGauge–unlike the other version of the nGauge– allows you to choose who tunes your vehicle. You aren’t stuck with one tuner shop. Of course, we’d be honored to write you a custom calibration for your Mustang GT, but if you have a local dynotuner in mind, we’d be happy to sell you an “empty” nGauge (without any custom tuning) for $449.00 In stock and ready to ship.

Keep in mind: We worked very hard to develop custom tunes for the 2015 Mustang GT–but after you purchase the initial custom tune we offer free tuning revisions for one year, even if you add modifications. We hope you choose Rick Erdman at Amazon Tuning Solutions to write your custom tunes!

To order an HP Tuners nGauge, simply click here: HP Tuners nGauge

If you’d like Rick Erdman to provide you with custom tuning and load it onto your nGauge, please send an email to sales@amazontuningsolutions.com or call 704-662-0881

Your 2011-2016 Mustang GT deserves the type of tuning that has taken many months with datalogs from dyno and street to develop!

Mach 1 Remotely Tuned by Rick Erdman at ATS

A shout out from our remotely tuner Mach 1 customer Hunter Conner

“After I installed my nitrous plate kit on my 2004 Mach 1 I was looking for a tuner. Had several friends and customers of ATS recommend them to me. I am so glad I listened to them, Mrs. Linn and Mr. Rick are first class people. Felt more like family than I did a customer. Thanks again.”

Remote tuning is a process that our ATS tuner Rick Erdman has offered for many years. He was one of the very first tuners to offer it to his customers who driving to us for a dyno tune  was not an option. He has remotely tuned thousands of vehicle all over the world.

Initially a preliminary tune file is emailed to you that is  based on your vehicle modifications. It is then verified by datalogging specific parameters. The datalogged parameters are then returned via email and the tune is dialed in and resent via email.

Remotely tuning is not for everyone. It can sometimes be a time consuming process. Patience and good communication are essential. If you are willing to dedicate the time required it can be a very viable option to dyno tuning when you do not have access to a reputable dyno tuner in your area.

If you are interested in knowing more about our remote tuning process give us a call at 704 662 0881 or email Rick@amazontuningsolutions.com for a personal consultation with Rick.


ATS 2015 GT Almost Ready to Rumble-Again

IMG_0255

 

Rick heading out in the ATS 2015 GT in street form to get some more break in miles on the RAM Race clutch. A big thanks to Mike Norcia@ RAM for finding a solution for  our clutch issues. He has been  in constant contact with us to help solve our clutch issues.  We really appreciated the one day turn around  on the clutch customizing needed to handle the power this car is going to make. We have been a RAM dealer for many years and happy to offer solutions for what ever your clutch needs might be.

We are impressed with the potential the car has with the new  VMP TVS Gen ll blower we have installed. Rick is chomping at the bit to get the car back on the dyno to finish up the tuning once the clutch is broken in. He has been tuning the car with the new HP Tuners Ford software and the HP Tuners nGauge.    He is very impressed with the capabilities of the products. The nGauge is  revolutionizing the tuning industry. We have them in stock and ready to ship retailing at $449.00. We also have teamed up with VMP to offer the TVS Gen ll and all other available VMP blower applications.

All products are available at our online store on our website      http://www.mcssl.com/store/amazontuningsolutions

2015 Coyote Mustang Tuning

13200271_edited-4

When the 2015 Mustang GT was first released, we jumped at the opportunity to buy, build and race one. Everything came together smoothly: The sponsorship (Thank you to all of our sponsors!), roll cage, blower, wheels, tires, clutch… The car was coming together perfectly. Being that Rick is a seasoned tuner and has tuned many 2011-2014 Mustang GT’s, we–like many other dyno shops–expected smooth sailing with the 2015 GT, but we quickly found out that tuning the 2015 Mustang GT, particularly with a positive displacement blower, was a whole new ballgame!

Rather than being defeated by this challenge, we embraced it. First, we installed a centrifugal blower (Procharger) on the car and developed tunes for it.

Here is a secret that many of the top tuners share: Developing a custom calibration is not as simple as “point, click, tune”. To do it properly, the tuner ideally needs weeks or months of seat and dyno time in the vehicle platform being tuned. There are many idiosyncrasies and drivability tweaks that only become apparent when the vehicle is being driven daily and/or driven down the track multiple times. Remote tuning a vehicle that you’ve never sat in most often produces lackluster results, so in the spirit of embracing this new platform, Rick Erdman jumped right in and began decompiling the stock tune, map by map.

Once the Procharger calibration was complete (and after several broke clutches), we moved on to the more challenging task on this new platform: Positive displacement blowers. With help from our friends at VMP Superchargers, we installed a VMP Supercharger on our 2015 Mustang GT and spent over 6 months developing a tune for it. The car is now running awesome, we’re excited for the 2016 NMRA season and we can’t wait to write you a custom calibration for your 2015 Mustang GT.

Here’s what ATS tuner Rick Erdman had to say about 2015 Mustang tuning:  “The 2015 Coyote has twice as many spark tables as the 2011-20014 Coyote, due to the return of IMRC plates. Twice the number of spark tables and twice the number of speed density tables significantly increases the time needed to develop tunes. Another difference in the 2015 is that it doesn’t use “optimum power map point” as the other Coyotes did. Additionally, the MT-82 manual transmission cars are more difficult to tune than the 6R80 automatic, and this is in contrast to the 2011-2015 Mustang GT’s. Naturally, once we discovered these things, we realized that we were at square one on a new platform.

After a challenging start, the ATS 2015 VMP Supercharged mustang GT is running great!

Tuning the 2015 Mustang GT: How we do it at Amazon Tuning Solutions:

Keep in mind: We worked very hard to develop custom tunes for the 2015 Mustang GT–so after the initial custom tune purchase we offer free tuning revisions for one year, even if you add modifications, so we hope you choose Rick Erdman and Amazon Tuning Solutions to write your custom tunes!

From One of our HP Tuners nGauge Customers

One of our current HP Tuners nGauge customers, TJ Reese commenting about working remotely with our tuner Rick Erdman.

All I have to say is that if you are on the fence about a tuner quit thinking about it and go with Amazon Tuning Solutions! Rick Erdman and Linn Erdman are great people to work with. I have a very simply modded coyote and for some reason when I would try to load a tune it would lock up the ecu. After countless hours on the phone with Rick and HP Tuners, getting the engineering guys at HPT involved and several other people it ended up being Rick who got to the bottom of the issue. Turned out to be a corrupt stock file that got pulled from the ecu from the get go. Rick then fired over a quick tune based on the theory and well I’ll just say I haven’t been able to wipe the smile off my face since! I might add I’m mountain time and they are east coast and I know they stayed late just to help with my issue for when I was available after work. I couldn’t have asked for any more from them! Great group of people to have helping support the Anything Coyote Mustang Related  FaceBook page. 

Just an example of how precise a remote tuning session from Rick Erdman @ ATS can be. It is a very viable option for anyone who does not have a local tuner available to them. The same process is used for remote tuning as with a dyno tune. A preliminary file is made for your vehicle based on your current modifications. It is sent to you via email. Once you receive the file it needs verified by data logging specific parameters and air fuel ration. That information is sent back to Rick and he adjusts the needed parameters to make a tune that is safe, reliable and has good drivability for your vehicle.

Rick has been doing EFI tuning since the late 90s and remote tuning for many years. He was one of the very first tuners to offer it to his customers that did not have the option to travel to him for a dyno tune.

When you get as many calls and emails as Rick does we need to be organized.   We have needed to do this for a long time so we are implementing  a Customer Resource Management  service  very soon to streamline the remote tuning process and help us stay organized.


Miss ATS Monday

Rick Erdman@ ATS  has always tuned  Ford, GM, and  Dodge gas and diesel vehicles.  He has used HP Tuners for his GM customers for many years. Since they have now entered the Ford market we have another excellent tuning option to offer our Ford customers. Here is our Miss ATS Tristan Lester with Linn’s 07 C6. We will be installing a JMS Pedal Max and it already is tuned and has an aftermarket exhaust to make that exhaust note just right. Not too loud and not too soft. We have already done a carbon fiber wrap on the roof and black matte wheels. Not much more is planned for it.

2011-2015 Mustang tuning by ATS with the HP Tuners nGauge

Screenshot 2015-09-25 09.27.03

What an awesome year 2015 has been so far at ATS!

Though we will miss NMRA in Bowling Green, KY this year (due to multiple conflicts), it has been an incredible year back in racing. We’ve chosen Tristan Lester as the new #MissAts and have spent countless hours developing tunes for the S550 mustang. With the release of the HP Tuners nGauge into the tuning market, we’ve never been more busy cranking out custom tunes! To date, we’ve been known as Ford Lightning and 03/04 Cobra tuners–and we still are, but adapting to industry changes is important. As a result, we’re full swing with the 2011-2015 mustang after months of development.

Now that we have an entirely new generation of mustang owners, we feel privileged to have so much seat time on the dyno with 2011-2015 mustangs and because of this we’re making this platform a heavy focus going forward. With so many enthusiasts buying these cars, this market has nowhere to go but up!

We are asked daily by late model mustang owners: “What is the best tuning platform for my mustang?” “Why the HP Tuners nGauge?”.

The answer is simple: The HP Tuners version of the nGauge is “unlocked”, which allows you to choose who tunes your vehicle. Of course, we’d be honored if you chose us to do your custom tuning: If you buy an HP Tuners nGauge for your 2011-2015 Mustang GT from Amazon Tuning Solutions ($449), it includes one free custom tune. However, if you have a local tuner that you are already comfortable with, you can simply buy the HP Tuners nGauge from us and bring it to your favorite tuner shop for tuning. Again, any shop that tunes Fords with the HP Tuners software can tune your car with the HP Tuners nGauge! This puts the power of choice in your hands.

Not to mention, wouldn’t you rather have a device in your car that you can enjoy every day? With a traditional tuner, it simply flashes your car and collects dust in your glovebox. The nGauge replaces a tuner and functions as a fully programmable, customizable gauge that lets you monitor important engine and transmissions functions. Not only is your car tuned, but you have something to show your friends to prove it. Want to have 2, or 3, or 5, or even 10 different tunes for your car ready at all times? The HP Tuner nGauge will store all of them, and swapping tunes is as easy as a 5-6 minute flash. Long story short, this is innovation the tuning industry has needed for years and it’s an awesome device!

But let’s focus again on tuning development and mail order tuning, because all mail order/email tuners are not alike. Rick Erdman has worked hard to build tried and true tuned files for your Coyote mustang, regardless of your modifications. We’ve been on the dyno with it normally aspirated, with a positive displacement blower (VMP), a Centrifugal supercharger (Procharger), nitrous, turbo…you name it! These custom tunes aren’t developed from theory alone: We’ve spend the hard hours on the dyno and at the track.

A big bonus you get with ATS: Free tuning revisions

ATS offers free revisions for 1 year if your modifications change. We understand that many of you will purchase and install modifications, only to change your mind after installing them. This happens for numerous reasons, but it’s mostly linked to a horsepower addiction–an addiction we condone through and through. Long story short: If you buy an HP Tuners nGauge from ATS, we tune your car for you and you decide 6 months later that you need a smaller supercharger pulley for more boost, we will provide a tuning update for you at absolutely no cost. There are obviously some limitations on this: You can’t rip the entire car apart, build the engine and change everything while expecting a free tuning revision–but for reasonable changes linked to your horsepower addiction–we salute you and your mission for more horsepower with free revisions =o)

Rick Erdman, Gen 2 Lightning Tuner Since 1998

Rick Erdman has been tuning Gen 2 Lightnings since 1998 when the first Gen 2 1999s were available on the market. He has tuned thousands of them over the years remotely and on our in house Mustang 1100 SE dyno.

His 1999 Lightning was preordered and the first Gen 2 sold out of the dealership he ordered it from. Going to the track with it one night was the start of another highly known Lightning performance company, Johnny Lightning Performance. JL soon had one of his own that Rick tuned for him. The rest is history!

Since then we have owned, built and raced 6 Lightnings and one 2003 Anniversary Harley truck. The latest is this showroom mint  DSG 2003 pictured here with our Miss ATS, Tristan Lester.

Photoshoot with Our New Miss ATS

On Saturday we had our first photoshoot with our new Miss ATS, Tristan Lester. Photo shoots are always a lot of fun but it makes it even more successful when working with a great model like Tristan and our very talented photographer,Chuck Brooks from 1320 Photography. We used mostly all of our own vehicles with the exception of a vehicle of a very good friend  Brandon Taylor. We tuned his car a few years ago and after he sold it he was lucky enough to get it back after a year or so. It is a beautiful car so we wanted to feature it at this first event with Tristan. We also used a Magnetic Metallic 2015 GT belonging to our shop mate Donnie Salem of Boosted Performance and a Kona Blue Metallic 2015 GT owned by Kevin Flick.

I can’t wait to see all the edits. They did some really cool shots.
