Piranha Racewerks Stage 1 Tune builds on our Base Tune and is by far our most popular tune.
This tune again is the result of what it takes to create high horsepower tunes with reliable and consistent results day in and day out. We spent 210+ hours on a dyno creating this tune running every possible scenario to make sure your driving experience with our tune was like stock (and often better MPG when cruising on the highway) when you want to just be normal but when you want raw power and get up and go you've got what most say the car should have come with.
William the owner of Piranha Racewerks created this tune for his Genesis Coupe 2.0T as well as all the other tunes we sell so this tune was not only tested/created on the dyno for perfection but was also proved on his daily commute which was at the time was 50 miles one way, so quality and reliability for this tune and all our tunes is priority #1
46+whp over stock
104+ft.lbs. tq over stock
Tune is only for manual transmission cars and we'll repeat that again, ALL of our tunes ONLY work on manual/stick/6 speed transmission cars.
OUR TUNE DOES NOT HAVE THE FOLLOWING AND WILL NOT HAVE DUE TO RELIABILITY ISSUES that all of our competitors have ran into, plus we want you to still have your cruise control if your car is equiped with it.
Things our tune does
Ability to make you and your passengers smile!
Ability to make others eat your dust and smell your exhaust fumes!
Raised redline to 7250rpm
Raised max speedlimiter 160mph
Optimized ignition firing
Optimized CAM adjustments on both intake and exhaust cams
Optimized throttle plate control to minimize rev hang and other throttle responses
Optimized fuel injector response and flow
You can skip the base tune and go right to this tune if you already have an intake and full turbo back exhaust without CATS or high flow CATS.
This tune CANNOT handle a FMIC or upgraded fuel injectors, you will need to get the Stage 2 Tune if you have a FMIC, Stage 2 Tune requires Bosch/Siemens 550cc injectors OR EVOX factory 550cc injectors.
We do not modify our tunes for anyone so if you have specific needs that are not covered by our tune then we suggest you purchase a Haltech standalone engine management system.
When selecting the various options be sure to pay close attention the immobilizer option, if you select the wrong option here you can make it so your car can not be started until taken to the dealer and the dealer reflashes your ECU or you purchase a new ECU. We will not be held responsible for any related damages, cost or lost time due to your selection of a wrong immobilizer type.
You can tell if your car has immobilizer by turning your key to the on position and looking for a car with a key icon in it, if you see a car with a key icon in it upon first turning the car to the on position then your car has immobilizer if you do not see the car with a key icon in it then your car does not have immobilizer. Perform the key on operation a few times just to make sure you didn't miss the light before it went out.
If your state requires yearly inspections it is possible that due to the disabled check engine light(CEL) for primary/secondary 02 sensor on both our stage 1 and stage 2 tunes it could cause you to fail inspection, if you are concerned about this then we suggest you buy a back up stock ECU to use during state inspections, due also note that to get through a "sniffer" test where the inspection station inserts a test probe into your exhsuat pipe you will need your primary and secondary CATS in place as these probes measure the different values of gases that are being bypassed by the CATS.
