Dyno Tune Checklist & Waiver
Please read & complete this form as requested by Hyperdrive Motorsport, ONLY after making a booking with the workshop for a Dyno Tune. Please do not complete this form unless you have already booked your car in, or have been requested to do so.
The purpose of this form is to provide Hyperdrive with information on your car/setup, as well as allow you to properly prepare the car for the Dyno. A number of the things on this checklist are often overlooked, which can lead to a failed tuning session and having to re-book the car in again, and/or additional costs for the labor required to rectify issues. Please read each question on the checklist to ensure the car is well prepared to be dyno tuned.

The following checklist is a list of items that should be confirmed before bringing your car in for a tune to ensure readiness to go onto the dyno. Please read through the checklist carefully, and tick options you are sure are correct
FULL tank of fuel. Please ensure you do not bring the car in with less than half a tank.
NO FLUID LEAKS and All Oil & Fluid levels are full and at the correct level
Fuel & Oil filters are clean/recently replaced
Engine is in good health, with good compression
No boost/air leaks from any part of the intercooler or intake system (carefully check this, incl clamps and all vacuum lines, as well as BOV)
No exhaust leaks from the manifold, turbos, dump pipes etc
Cam timing is correct and adjusted, tuner advised of any custom settings
Coils in good working order, engine has no misfires
Spark plugs are in good order, are the correct type, heat rating and have been gapped to suit
The engine cooling system is in good working order, fans/shroud operational and coolant full & bled correctly. Overheating is a common issue and causes many failed tunes.
Clutch & gearbox in good working order & able to handle target power levels
Vac lines for Wastegate, boost controller, ecu MAP sensor, fuel regulator and any others all connected correctly & securely
All wiring relating to engine & EFI system is in good working order, no poor or loose connections
All engine & EFI sensors in good working order, especially the main load sensor. BEWARE of fake/copy AFM's particularly.
Battery is charged, and alternator is checked & charging correctly at 13.5 - 14.5 volts. This also causes many failed tunes.
ECU is not locked or password protected, and is not hard to access to connect to laptop
Passengers seat & footwell is cleared of items to allow the tuner to setup equipment for the tune
Street tyres are fitted (NO drag radials, hard compound street tyres work best on the dyno) and tyre pressures checked and set correctly
If the wheels have locknuts, the locknut key is in the glovebox
No check engine lights, or any other known issues that may impact the dyno tune
