How It Works

1

Bring your vehicle to our facility in Switzerland

Upon arrival we check the make and model of your vehicle, examine it for any obvious mechanical changes or defects then confirm your requirements and expectations. We give you a time to return for your vehicle, usually a maximum of 4 hours after you hand over the keys.

2

Prep & Engine Management System Analysis

A good tune requires perfect preparation, so we prepare your vehicle to optimally receive its new performance parameters by ensuring the battery is fully charged, no radio or air conditioning systems are active and where necessary - creating some distance between the keyless entry system and your key. All of this is done to maximize the stability of communication with your car and minimize potential interruptions.

3

Analyse your vehicles state of tune

We look at your vehicles existing fuel, air, turbo pressure and ignition tables to determine the current state of tune and establish a baseline for improvements in power output and efficiency. We write a custom map file with new parameters baed on the experience of the fastlane network and prepare a new 'table'.

4

Gearbox & manufacturer restriction removal

During the re-tuning process we identify the restrictions placed by the manufacturer and circumvent them. For gearbox tuning we reconfigure its parameters to better match a higher power and torque level that results from chip-tuning which helps improve normal driving economy and responsiveness in sports settings.

5

Car Adaptation Drive

After writing the new performance or economy map to your engines control unit we undertake an adaptation drive to confirm it has accepted the new parameters and functions correctly. This drive is usually a minimum of 2km but can go for up to 10-15 km where necessary. This is to ensure the correct functioning of the ECU and all mechanical systems under the changed parameters and to make minute adjustments if necessary based on your cars specific responses.

6

Joint test drive of the tuned vehicle

This is the part we really enjoy: you test drive your car with the new performance or economy parameters and we watch the smile grow on your face.

3 JUN The Dangers of CNG Performance Tuning

Joseph Power

CNG Performance Tuning

The dangers of CNG / LNG performance mapping.Short version: performance comes at a cost to heat management. Give it full gas on gas for too long and the engine will overheat.Long version: Since CNG and LNG are gases, they mix faster with air in the cylinder. Combined with a turbocharger to deliver the right amount of air it is possible to produce very good power using CNG / LNG. In fact better power than petrol or diesel. Hold on a minute! CNG and LNG have a lower specific energy rating - about 30% less than petrol. How is it possible? Simple: gases flow faster and mixes with air faster so we can give it more gas - literally. Thus with gas we can give it more and compensate for this energy deficit. But an engine is just a pressure differential engine - fancy speak for an air pump. Under acceleration the additional pressure generates heat. Google Guy-Lussacs law for the science of it. In a diesel or petrol engine the fuel itself is liquid as it enters the cylinder, then it stratifies into a mist that is better for combustion. To compensate for the increased heat generated by rapid pressure increases we use a technique called acceleration enrichment. In simple terms it is the dumping of fuel into the cylinder way above what is needed for efficient combustion for one simple purpose - too cool the cylinder down. With CNG / LNG this isnt possible to do since its not a liquid and doesnt cool the cylinder. Therefore when you give it full gas for too long, the engine will get very very hot. So why dont we just use a dual fuel system and dump some benzin in there to cool it off. Great idea in theory, however the ignition point of petrol is lower than gas so all you would do is introduce a monumental amount of pre-ignition and that is very unhealthy for the motor. So bottom line, if you put a performance map on your CNG powered car, run it on liquid fuel if you can, or pay attention to the temperature gauge. Your car will begin to tell you when its unhappy and it first shows this by whats called heat fade, common with higher power turbocharged cars. You will notice it as a reduction in outright power when you give it full gas. Pay attention to it because its telling you to ease up a bit. But I could fit a really big intercooler and produce cooler air, yes you could for a little while but the laws of physics simply arent on your side here. The intercooler will get hot eventually and loose its effectiveness - also referred to as heat fade or heat sink. Sometimes physics sucks.

26 MAY Is Carbon Cleaning Worth It?

Joseph Power

Carbon Cleaning

Well after talking with many customers the answer is yes, unless your vehicle is brand new and utilizing the best fuel.The Fastlane Tuning Schweiz demonstrator car has over 60,000 km and after carbon cleaning it ran better, not faster or more powerful but smoother, like it was breathing better. This car has been run on the best of fuel and is highly maintained because naturally its there to demonstrate our product. So I consider it the worst possible candidate for proofing whether carbon cleaning works or not. It definitely does. If you want to know more please contact us or visit us at Hanni Motorsport in Wichtrach, Switzerland.

17 APR Did you know its possible to achieve better fuel economy, greater power, smoother performance and lower emissions from your vehicle by optimizing its systems?

Joseph Power

Software Optimization for Better Economy and Respect for the Environment

Your vehicle is a product: Manufacturers need to sell vehicles and do so by encouraging regular trade ins for the latest, fastest, more efficient model with better technology and features than its predecessor. They optimize the research and development and production costs of their product offerings by utilizing the same systems and architecture across multiple products. Engines and transmissions are designed with a useful marketing lifespan in mind, usually 10-15 years, during which it is expected that the motors are more powerful, more efficient and more emissions friendly with each new model sold. In the majority of cases the only difference between todays model its future replacement is better optimized motor and transmission programming. Optimizing Engine Control: through careful optimization of fuel, ignition timing and air pressure we improve engine fuel efficiency by up to 20% on some diesel motors and circa 15% for petrol engines, as well as significant power and responsiveness improvements. We are essentially programming the car of tomorrow today. The result is an automobile that is significantly more efficient and a pleasure to drive. To find out what is possible for your particular vehicle, please visit http://www.fastlane-tuning.com/configurator Transmission optimization: Modern transmissions are programmed to match the performance characteristics of the engine attached to it and the marketed level of sophistication and refinement. Like engine control optimization, we can program your transmission for efficiency in performance across all usage scenarios. The result: faster more responsive gear changes in sports mode and smoother, more efficient and intelligent gear selection in economy and normal driving modes. Transmission optimization under normal driving conditions can yield a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency and transform your driving experience. We offer transmission optimization for your car. Early identification of electronic problems: Modern cars are equipped with more than 20 individual computers that are responsible for ABS, engine, transmission, entertainment, airbags, stability control and driver assistance systems. When problems occur in one system they can replicate and cause problems in others resulting in loss of performance or function and intermittent check engine lights. With our advanced scanning and diagnostics tools we can review the health of your cars electronic systems and remedy many common problems seen in modern automobiles. Furthermore we can advise you on what preventative maintenance should be undertaken before your warranty expires and provide you peace of mind for only 40 CHF. Each review takes approximately 30 minutes and will include detailed analysis, assessment and recommendations that you can take to your dealer for repairs.
