What Is An Engine Tuner And How Does It Work?

An engine tuner is a device that adjusts the performance of your car's engine by altering its settings and calibrations for shifting, as well as its fuel-to-air ratio. This can be done through a number of different methods, but most commonly it is done via a module that is installed in your car. Once installed, an engine tuner can provide a number of different benefits in terms of horsepower and torque output, as well as fuel economy.

How Much Horsepower and Torque Can Engine Tuners Add To Cars?

It really depends on how many performance mods you've done to your car, but if you only added a tuner, you could expect up to 10-15 percent more horsepower right out of the box, and up to 30 more pound-feet of torque. That's just with a tuner, though - adding other performance parts like intakes and intercoolers can help your car's engine get up to a 50 percent increase in horsepower and torque output!

Tunes are also one of the best things you can do to get the most out of other aftermarket parts you want to add to your car, like exhaust systems, air intakes, downpipes, and others. Using a tuner is a solid way to help your performance kick into high gear, and it's why we recommend them to anyone who's looking for a little bit more out of their cars.
