PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK FOR A BASIC RUN DOWN ON WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE REMOTE TUNING PROCESS: https://www.sonictuned.com/post/the-remote-tuning-process
YOUR BASEMAP WILL NOT BE SENT UNTIL EVERY SINGLE STEP ON THIS PAGE HAS BEEN COMPLETE. YOU HAVE 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE TO DO THIS STEP AND 30 DAYS AFTER THAT TO START AND FINISH TUNING. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN A $250 RETUNE FEE. NO EXCEPTIONS! NOT DOING SO CAUSES SCHEDULING ISSUES AND SLOWS THE PROCESS DOWN FOR EVERYONE.
DOWNLOAD THE ECUTEK CONNECT APP.
INSTALL THE ECUTEK BLUETOOTH CONNECT MODULE INTO THE OBD2 PORT UNDER YOUR STEERING WHEEL TO THE LEFT(OR RIGHT) ON THE Q50/Q60.
OPEN THE ECUTEK APP AND GO TO THE SETTINGS BY CLICKING THE GEAR ICON AT THE BOTTOM.
ONCE YOU ARE IN THE SETTINGS TAB, SELECT ADD/REMOVE AND THEN SELECT WHICH UNIT YOU HAVE BY LOOKING AT THE FRONT LABEL ON THE CONNECT DEVICE. IT WILL EITHER SAY EVI-BT OR EVI-BTLE. ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED THIS, GO BACK TO THE SETTINGS MENU
IN SETTINGS, YOU NEED TO SET UP YOUR ACCOUNT AND SELECT "SONICTUNED" AS YOUR TUNER.
GO BACK TO THE MAIN MENU, SELECT MY CAR, THEN SCROLL DOWN AND SELECT PROGRAM ECU. FROM THERE,FILL OUT YOUR VEHICLE INFO AND THEN SELECT "SEND VEHICLE INFO TO TUNER". then proceed to step 4!
IMPORTANT: Your custom tune will be made according to the details you provide below. Please only include parts that will be on the car during tuning. ANY CHANGES TO THE BASEMAP ONCE IT IS SENT WILL REQUIRE A $250 RETUNE FEE TO MAKE A NEW BASEMAP. !!!!NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!
PLEASE EMAIL TUNING@SONICTUNED.COM FROM THE EMAIL ACCOUNT YOU USED IN STEP 3 WITH THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
**********PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS STEP. A BASEMAP WILL NOT BE SENT UNTIL ALL THREE QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED. ANY CHANGES MADE AFTER THE BASEMAP IS SENT WILL REQUIRE A RETUNE AND A FEE. NO EXCEPTIONS!!**********
IS YOUR Q50/Q60 AWD OR RWD? (LEAVE BLANK FOR THE Z)
WHAT IS THE OCTANE OF THE BASE FUEL YOU WILL BE USING? (91 or 93 OCTANE)
LIST ALL OF YOUR MODIFICATIONS FOR WHICH THE TUNE IS BEING MADE. Any special map requests will also need to be made at this time. If they can be done, they will be. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU ARE VERY DETAILED WITH EXACTLY WHICH PARTS YOU HAVE ON YOUR VEHICLE. DRAG RADIALS/SLICKS ON A RWD CAR IS A MOD!!!!! You will be charged a $250 retune fee if this parts list is incorrect and a new BASEMAP needs to be made. There are no exceptions!
IS YOUR Z A 6-SPEED OR AUTOMATIC? (LEAVE BLANK FOR THE Q50/Q60)
ONCE THAT IS DONE, YOUR CUSTOM BASEMAP WILL BE BUILT BASED ON THE THREE THINGS MENTIONED ABOVE WITHIN A FEW BUSINESS DAYS. ONCE THE BASEMAP IS SENT, YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO COMPLETE THE PROCESS! PLEASE BE PATIENT!!! ONCE YOU RECEIVE YOUR BASEMAP, YOU WILL PROCEED TO STEP 2 OF THE SETUP PROCESS FOUND HERE: CLICK HERE
*PLEASE NOTE* Every ECU has a unique digital part number that is used to make each custom BASEMAP. There is a possibility that your ECU has not been entered into ECUTEK's system yet. If that is the case, you will receive a notification once you select "Send vehicle info to tuner" stating that your ROM DUMP has been sent to ECUTEK. This happens often and if you receive the message, the tuning process may take up to an additional 5 business days while ECUTEK adds your specific part number to the system. Once it has been added, you will receive an email stating this has been completed and your ECU will then be ready to calibrate.
