Q: What does this tune update mean?
A: A tune update is when you have purchased tunes from us and need them changed due to you modifying your vehicle or you are outside your 60-day window for preference-based changes and need something modified like how the vehicle shifts for example. Keep in mind, that any upgrades or modifications you purchase through our website will get you a free tune update for that part!
Q: should i expect my tune updates to be free of charge since i purchased my tuner plus more from you??
A: Any part you purchase through our website, after receiving your original tunes, will come with a free tune update. You will just need to submit a custom tune form for it.
Any part you buy from another vendor will require the purchase of a tune update.
Q: I currently have an 87 Octane street performance tune from you guys - love it. My question is, I would like to go up to 91 Octane. What would be the best course of action? Would I have to buy a whole new tune? Am I covered for a free update in this situation? Or would I have to purchase a tune update?
PS: At a later date, I'm changing my rear gear to 4:10:1 - could the rear gear ratio option be left unlocked and changeable by me on the tune?
A: A tune for a different octane would require a new tune purchase, but with an existing customer discount. In your case, this discount has been applied to your account, so all you have to do is log in.
We typically leave gear ratio as an adjustable options in our tunes, but if you don't see that, just reply to the email where you received that tune. If you have a manual trans you're perfectly good to go with the on device adjustment, but if you have an automatic, you'd be better off purchasing a $20 tune update so that we can make appropriate adjustments to your shift schedule to suit the new gear ratio.
Q: I own a 2013 Mustang 5.0, with tunes by MPT. I have been more than pleased with how hard the car pulls and would like to continue utilizing your team of experts. I have just bought a Cobra Jet intake manifold, Monoblade throttle body, and Airaid CAI. Will MPT be able to tune my car? (only other modification is a MAC off-road Midpipe)
A: We can update your tunes for those modifications. However, you will need to purchase the heavy mods add-on for those modifications as well.
Q: If I had an MPT tune from my previous 2014 Mustang V6, can I use this update feature to "update" the tune for my new 2016 Mustang GT?
A: This purchase is for when you do a physical modification to your vehicle that requires a tune revision.
Tunes are vehicle specific. You will need to purchase new tunes. They cannot be moved from one vehicle to another. Also, we currently do not offer tunes for the 2016 Mustang GT.
Q: I am changing my stock gears from 2.73 gears to 3.73 gears do I do the same process as to when I got my custom tune? and fill out form and send it to you guys I just paid 20 dollars for a update I just want to know if I did the right thing thanks!
A: After purchasing the Tune Update, you will need to submit a custom tune form. This will put yourself in line for tune updates. In the form, there will be two important drop-down options. For Vehicle Type, make sure you select "Existing Tune Update". For Purchase Info, make sure you select "Update for Existing Customer". Next, select the option that describes your tune update, and in the comments let us know specifically what you need your tunes updated for. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1wbOcl_gtnYbPduu3r936VvhValdZCjD4xuWpdeLqIlQ/viewform
Q: I purchased an SCT Tuner and several tunes (5 if I remember correctly) 2 years ago for my 2012 F150 Ecoboost. Are updates to these tunes free? Thanks.
A: Any modifications purchased through our site will grant you a free update to your tunes for that part. Just submit a new MPT Tune Form telling us what has changed.
Should you buy the part elsewhere or need a preference-based change outside the 60-day window, you will need to purchase a $20 Tune Update. The $20 Tune Update will cover all tunes you have for that price, not $20 per tune. You will also need to submit an MPT Tune Form after your purchase of the Tune Update.
Q: Can I use the tube update option to change my street shifting tune to a stock shifting tune?
A: That would be a separate new tune, rather than an update.
Q: Okay I'm confused.

A: Reply to the email where you received your tune and let us know there what you'd like changed.

It also covers any preference-based changes you may want, but have gone out of the 60-day window we offer.
