Trainings

WinOLS training

Professionals very often talk about the features of engine controllers and their chip-tuning, but the information circulating on the internet or among friends is in most cases very limited and vague.

If anyone has participated in a training offered by the automotive companies, they might had had the impression that some questions, such as, "what tuning functions the ECU has" got vague and often evasive answers. Such a behavior should not be surprising, considering the fact that the sharing of information, which should not be accessible to everyone, can cause considerable harm, if used by amateurs. This procedure is justified by the fact of carrying out repairs to a workshop (sensors, wiring, el. adjustments) without taking into account the electronics, which very often is the cause of the fault. Furthermore, the current European legislation on environmental protection forces the automotive industry to “throttle” engines.

Quite often we can see the case that the customer comes to the distributor or seller of car because the new “astonishing” car is slower than advertised, uses a lot of fuel and, paradoxically, is generally of poorer quality than the old car? What's more, the client will be explained by mechanician or dealer often with an answer like "this is a special feature of this type of car," which means that nothing can be done and driver has to get used to it.

One fact is certain: the tools that workshops have at their disposal are usually not sufficient to work with the ECU, so the technicians can’t tune key parameters: the torque limiter injection, ignition, boost pressure and many others. These types of operations are performed in limited circumstances and only by an authorized service personnel.

The aim of the training – which will contain very interesting information, usually unknown to wide public – is to explain to the technicians / mechanicians how does the ECU really work and what are the real possibilities of making safe modifications to the ECU parameters. With dedicated programs operated by the car tuning companies, we will explain and train you at the safe and efficient optimization of the ECU.

Training in the V-tech Tuning  based on the WinOLS software and tools manufactured by EVC Electronic is authorized by EVC.

Day with diesel tuning / Day with gasoline tuning:

This course differs from our typical one-to-one trainings. It is oriented towards beginners, who want to verify whether becoming a skilled pro tuner is reachable for them (level 1) or already make own tuning files, but want to improve skills and repeatability and learn new useful tricks (level 2).

Training formula bases on one day (7 hours) training, focused only on diesel controllers (level 1 – Bosch, level 2 – various types) or gasoline controllers, respectively.

Such training will be organized in groups of 5 persons.

The cost of training:
400€ net / person – Level 1
500€ net / person – Level 2

Training takes place on Saturday and lasts for 7 hours
