TunerStudio and is comprehensive engine tuning software that allows users to modify and optimize the performance of MS3Pro and MSPNP Engine Management Systems as well as the MicroSquirt EMS (and our old school kit-style MegaSquirt systems as well)
All of our standalone Engine Management Systems allow users to fully control the engine and ignition of their vehicles, as well as datalog a variety of sensors to gather data you can use to further tune your race engine for maximum horsepower and performance potential. TunerStudio is designed to be easy to use and highly customizable, making it a popular choice for DIY enthusiasts, racers in all sorts of motorsport, and professional tuners alike.
One of the key features of TunerStudio is its user-friendly interface, which makes it easy for users to navigate and modify their tune settings. The software also has a wide range of features and tools that allow users to fine-tune their engine for maximum performance. These features include real-time data logging, live tuning, and the ability to create custom fuel and ignition maps.
In addition to its tuning capabilities, TunerStudio also has a number of diagnostic tools that can be used to troubleshoot and identify problems with the engine. These tools include test modes allowing you to test individual components like each individual fuel injector to ensure all is wired and working properly, or each individual ignition coil, general on/off relay controlling outputs to test a fan or pump function, etc. There is also a trigger/composite logger that helps you ‘see’ what the ECU ‘sees’ on your crank and cam input, allowing you to diagnose issues with your camshaft or crankshaft position sensor or trigger wheel. The window this software provides into the world of what’s going on under your hood is POWERFUL. And that’s what we’re after here isn’t it? Maximum power. We got chu fam!
Installing and setting up TunerStudio is straightforward and only requires a few simple steps. First, the software is downloaded and installed on your computer. Next, the MS3Pro/MSPNP/MicroSquirt engine management system is connected to the computer using a USB cable (or in some cases, a DB9 serial cable). Once the software and hardware are connected, users can begin tuning their engine by making changes to their tune with TunerStudio.
Proper engine tuning is a complex process that requires a good understanding of engine mechanics and experience with tuning software. While TunerStudio makes it easy for users to modify and optimize their engine’s performance, it is important to exercise caution and seek the assistance of a professional tuner if you are not comfortable with the process.
