Project Mustang 5.0: Data Logging, Tuning, and More with HP Tuners nGauge

by Vince Illi

HP Tuners has been at the forefront of automotive engine tuning and diagnostics for Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler vehicles for over a decade now. Their VCM suite is used for tuning by professional speed shops around the world. Furthermore, HP Tuners is one of the only aftermarket companies who has completely “unlocked” the Copperhead Powertrain Control Module (PCM) used in Ford’s latest engines, including the Coyote 5.0 V8. Their VCM Scanner is available to consumers and can perform the vast bulk of factory-level diagnostic testing on a laptop computer—tools normally only available to Dealers using Ford’s expensive Intelligent Diagnostic Scanner (IDS) tool.

Recently, HP Tuners partnered with E-Motion products to create a new handheld tuner device with a twist. The aftermarket is already flooded with OBD-II tuning devices that run the gamut from good to terrible, so HP Tuners wanted to set themselves apart by making something that could do more than just standard tuning.
