Partner Spotlight: HP TunersAug 27, 2020
In developing the Skip Barber Mustang GT school car, each system of the base vehicle was analyzed for safety, performance, reliability and how it contributes to the learning experience for the student. One of the most critical aspects of the school car is the engine calibration. Power delivery must be predictable and consistent across the fleet all while the engine is operating at its peak performance for extended periods in grueling & varying environments. Our school cars see hours of track time day after day, going from hot and humid days at Sebring, to cool fall days at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. In developing the engine calibration, we partnered with the experts at HP Tuners to create the perfect school car tune.

For the Mustang GT School Car, we utilized their MPVI2 tool to access the engine computer. Using VCM Scanner, we were able to log data from the cars to understand the baseline tuning from the factory. With the assistance of HP Tuners master tuner Alex Peitz, we used the MPVI2 and VCM Editor, plus dyno and on-track testing, to develop an engine calibration perfect for Racing School use.
