HPF has been custom tuning late model common rail diesel engines now for many years and we were one of the pioneers into this market before it became ‘all the rage’. We armed ourselves with the latest ‘Master tools’ and continue to add the latest hardware and software to stay at the leading edge of the technology, this allows us to go further into the mapping then most of our competitors and ‘MAP’ each vehicle individually on the dyno for the most effective and safest result. As such, we are able to offer industry leading warranties, guarantees and the results we achieve are rarely matched by the others in the market place.

This experience in tuning has now opened up a ‘Staged upgrade path’ for those looking for more than what a custom tune can offer. The Stage-2 package addresses the next level of components that limit power; generally this will be a turbocharger and associated hardware upgrade. The turbocharger upgrade is aimed at increasing air flow into the engine; this allows extra fuel to be added for more power and torque throughout the rev range. We still maintain our ‘reliability first protocol’ which maintains safe air fuel ratios and low EGT’s. You will note that the Stage-2 package may not include what is traditionally thought to be ‘essential diesel upgrades’ but rest assured, if it’s needed, it will be in the Stage-2 package.

Below you will find our ‘Stage-1’ custom tune results and below that, the ‘Stage-2’ package option where applicable. The full Option list for all models is below.
