GENERAL INFORMATION ON TUNING

Our tuning is unlike any other company. Our Omega tune replaces multiple tunes, so no more need to buy and load different tunes. Once you load our tune you can run any octane, 87, 91, 93, E85, or a blend of fuels. The tune automatically adapts and gives the best performance all the time. No more switching! We also tune the sport and tow modes, and all you would have to do is engage those features as you normally would. It is the most complete, versatile tune you can get.

Yes. The tune is discounted when you purchase the tuner. Just use the drop-down box, "Oz Tuning Custom Tunes (Omega). Discounted with this purchase" and choose the tune you need.

You will need a Programmer to install a tune onto your vehicle.

The SCT X4, the Bully Dog BDX, or SCT BDX are the ones we recommend for the 2011-2017's.

You will need a nGauge, RTD Interface, or MVPI2 for 2018's and up, and will need your own Windows based laptop.

It's a one time charge, and if you ever need an update, it’s $25 and up depending on the changes you make. Just visit our Re-Tune page and select the type of tune you need. NOTE: With parts purchased from our site that requires tuning, the updates are free.

No. You will have to go to our site and fill out the Tune Form to claim your tune. We can’t build it until we get the device Serial Number, the Strategy for your ECM, and the mods you have on your vehicle. For the 2018s and up, we will also need a copy of your stock tune.

Obviously, the flexibility of being able to use any fuel you choose, including E85 or any blend of E85 and gasoline, is a great feature. All of our customers enjoy the fact that they don’t need to change tunes if they need to tow or haul a load. However, one of the HUGE advantages that Omega has over all the other tunes is that we’ve taken the time to tune the COMPLETE operation range. We’ve adjusted the variable cam settings at part throttle, drive by wire settings to improve throttle response, transmission shift points and torque converter lock-up schedules to exactly match your particular gear and tire combination, and of course the increased power at full throttle. All of this comes together to make the most versatile, and most complete tune that is currently available for the 5.0 F150.

Yes. We've designed Omega to be both safe and powerful. The very nature of how Omega is compatible with any fuel octane makes it infinitely safer than other tunes that are designed for specific fuel octanes. You won't need to worry about your wife filling the truck up with 87 and the tune being set up for 93. Omega will adjust and adapt to whatever fuel is in the truck... whatever driving conditions you throw at it... and whatever load you're putting on it.

A lot of what our customers said from feedback, is that the Omega Tune’s shifting is superior to the others. Along with the performance improvements (improved throttle response, increase in low-end torque, more top-end power), the shifting is what sets ours apart. Omega is designed to shift where it needs to without jerking your head off but is precise, but not overly aggressive. Tow/haul mode has been fine-tuned to get the best performance no matter what you are pulling.

The process itself is very simple, and it's almost impossible for you to mess anything up. We provide step by step instructions, and we control the rev limit in the tune during the process, so there's little chance of you hurting anything.

Within 48 hrs of placing your order and submitting your tune form during business days.

We build your tune just for your vehicle, so we take into consideration tire size, gear ratio. etc.. so this will correct your Speedo and help your shifting with the bigger tires.

We modify all transmission functions in the tune to provide a balance of economy and performance, depending on pedal input. We also modify the Tow-Haul functions to improve towing functions, and the Tow Haul button activates those functions, just as it would on the stock tune.

It can help with economy, but not all customers have seen this. Most comment on the towing, shifting, throttle response, and low-end torque performance. You may see a mileage increase. There are literally hundreds of variables that affect fuel economy that is outside of the control of the tune. We have lots of customers that see a mileage increase, and some that see a loss. It greatly depends on your driving style and conditions.

If you already have a tuner, verify with us our tunes will work with it if you are not sure. If so, all you need to do is purchase our tune. Fill out the online tune form. And we'll build your tune and email to you. It's a one time charge, and if you ever need an update for performance upgrades, there is a Re-Tune page, and depending on the changes you make, it is $25 and up.

HP Tuners Credits are similar to a licensing fee HP Tuners requires from us to be able to tune your vehicle's ECU. There are specific to VIN, ECU strategy, and tuning file format. Note: If, for any reason, any of the three criteria changes, more HP Credits will need to be purchased to re-license the tune.

As a tuning company, we have to follow EPA guidelines, so we cannot modify our tunes for deleting or replacing any factory installed emission components on a licensed street vehicle that has a VIN. That includes turning off CEL’s associated with such. While this does not affect drivability, the O2 sensors can throw the inefficiency codes.

That has to do with the mods you have. Running totally stock, or having minor modifications such as, intakes, headers, or exhaust would qualify as a “Basic” tune. More extensive modifications that will require more involved tuning and datalogging, like cams, or torque converters would be considered “Advanced“.
