    Once again, we would like to thank our dedicated HPT staff, our team of forum moderators, beta testers and all our valued customers who help us keep VCM Suite at the leading edge of tuning solutions. We appreciate your enthusiasm, dedication, patience and feedback during the sometimes long and complex development process.

    We hope you enjoy VCM Suite 2.2.0!


    Ford V8 Tuning
    Forget those external flash devices and separate tuning/scanning hardware and software packages, ALL-IN-ONE Ford tuning and scanning is here! Now you can tune GM and Ford using a single interface HARDWARE *and* SOFTWARE from HP Tuners. Our fully integrated solution encompasses hardware, software and licensing structures to minimize any non-tuning related learning or re-training.

    From a hardware perspective our existing and proven MPVI hardware was designed with Ford protocol support from it's initial launch in 2006 and provides the same robust base for Ford tuning. VCM Suite software integrates Ford tuning into a familiar look and feel for existing users. Keeping the tuning experience as close to our existing GM solution was paramount to avoid re-learning administrative tasks instead of getting on with the job of Ford tuning itself. There are many new and unfamiliar parameters to edit for Ford vehicles and where possible we have maintained a similar functional grouping to the GM product. Basic functions such as reading, writing, table editing, comparing and other features remain consistent across both Ford and GM applications. Lastly, our licensing credit system has proven extremely popular and easy to use and it makes sense that Ford would fit right into the existing system with minimal confusion. Users will now be able to purchase "Ford credits" which are used and applied for Ford vehicles in exactly the same way in which GM credits are used for GM vehicles on the same MPVI hardware. Both single vehicle and year/model license types will be supported initially and additionally a new "VCM Suite Ford" base package that ships with 8 Ford credits is available to new customers and dealers.

    To summarize:
    - existing MPVI hardware
    - VCM Suite software
    - no external flashing devices
    - all-in-one Ford and GM tuning solution
    - seamless user interface
    - consistent credit based licensing system
    - new VCM Suite Ford base package

    Supported Ford Vehicles:
    - 05-07 Ford Mustang V8
    - 04-07 Ford F-Series V8

    This is our first step into the Ford tuning market and we already have plans and roadmaps set to expand our product to support other Ford vehicle types and enhance scanner support over the coming months, exciting times ahead for sure!

    GM Solstice/Sky 2.0L Turbo support

    - 07 Pontiac Solstice 2.0 Turbo
    - 07 Saturn Sky 2.0 Turbo

This general release provides tuning support for the engine, including camshaft control and manual or 4spd automatic transmission if fitted. Enhancements such as 5spd automatic transmission are planned for future releases.This release adds support for the following vehicles:

    New VCM Scanner MPID support for late model GM ECM's
    As ECM's get more powerful and complex the feedback to the tuner needs to adapt. HP Tuners "MPID" (short for Memory PID) technology allows access to advanced tuning parameters to give a more complete picture of what the ECM is up to during engine operation. Almost 50 new MPID's have been added to VCM Scanner for the E40/E38/E67 range of ECM's where applicable.

    New MPIDs:
    - SPARK (Base, IAT, ECT, EGR, PE/COT, DFCO, CFCO, FlexFuel, CatLightoff, Piston Slap, Launch, Cranking, Per Cylinder advances, TqMgt, Idle Base, Idle Adapt, Variable Cam)
    - KNOCK (knock learn factor, per cyl KL Fact, per cyl KR)

    - Intake Valve Temp
    - Injector Tip Temp

    HP Tuners VCM Suite v2.2.0 is Now Available! - Part 2

    Online Credit Card ordering and Instant Application Key's
    Since the very first release of VCM Suite we have been listening to feedback from our customers and tunershops on all aspects of using our products and interfacing with HP Tuners from a business perspective. Over the years we have implemented various systems to streamline or enhance things such as the credit based licensing system, application key based software structure, single vehicle licenses, the ability to license files for mail order tuning, the customer login page with email updates and other features. These features all help make the interface between us smoother and less likely to result in confusion or misunderstandings. Customers are able to help themselves via their customer login to important information regarding their product, purchases and available upgrades rather than requiring back and forth emails.

    To coincide with the release of VCM Suite 2.2.0 it gives us great pleasure to announce HP Tuners secure online credit card processing facilities and instant application key service for new credit purchases.

    In addition to existing Paypal payment methods, customers are now able to purchase directly via credit card. All aspects of existing online shopping cart remain the same with the additional option of direct credit card payment on checkout. For new GM or Ford credit purchases made via Credit Card or Paypal (excluding E-Check) the updated application key will be emailed instantly to the email address specified during the checkout process. No more urgent emails for a car sitting on the dyno on the weekend that you forgot to purchase credits for! Please note that customers who use Paypal E-Check will not be issued an application key until the E-Check funds have cleared which usually takes a number of days.

    We think these new features will certainly please a lot of customers!

    Also, it's probably a good time to remind existing customers that all current information about your product is available to you via our customer login facility. Things such as your current application key, available software downloads and general information is available there. If you have not created an account yet, please think about registering soon.

    Review our general release & beta release methodology HERE.

    A complete list of new features and bug fixes can be found HERE

    Obtaining the update
    All customers can login to download and install VCM Suite 2.2.0. Updates are FREE to all customers. MPVI customers who have never logged in, please create an account.

    Please note that not all listed features and new vehicle types are available on serial interfaces.

    For all ordering and pricing information on any of the new vehicles listed above, please see our Shop Online and Supported Vehicles page.

    - The HP Tuners team.

    Yea for Ford 4.6 tuning! Now I can get rid of this handheld! Having to program via a handheld is a nuisance.

    I think the best part of this release will be the instant application keys hehe

    Especially with SEMA right around the corner it will be nice to know it'll all be taken care of automatically!

    That and being able to order a couple of credits for that late walk in customer at 6pm

    You call 6pm late? Try getting a call at midnight and heading over to the dyno at 2am and making pulls till 4 am to test out a nitrous kit on a ZO6. LOL

    I agree that the instant credits will be nice. Very convienent for sure.

    I wouldn't say we're done with LS1/LS6 just because autotune hasn't been made functional yet. Keith already explained the latest on autotune http://www.hptuners.com/forum/showpo...6&postcount=26 and why it didn't make it to this release. Automating the credit system so he doesn't need to manually process hundreds of orders a day will free up some time though Im sure

    Am I understanding correctly that this release will still not help us tune the VE on an LS2? Marcin?
