Calibrated Success

More Technical Articles Coming

I’m proud to announce that I will be contributing technical content to the team at Hot Rod Magazine. Look for my usual down to earth, no-nonsense writing that brings complex topics to the masses in plain English. I already have several articles ready to go, but feel free to reach out to either me or the Hot Rod team if there’s something specific you would like to see covered.

2023 UC-Riverside OSAR Conference – Free Live Stream Coming

After presenting to scientists and agencies at the recent OSAR (On Board Sensing and Reporting) conference at UC-Riverside, I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a free live webinar to present to the public as well. This short talk briefly discusses the core functionality of the OBD-II and a few different ways that we measure in-use vehicle emissions. See how gross polluters and defeat devices are easily identified and learn what tools are available to start gathering local data that can indicate that a car is running clean. Parts manufacturers can use this to better prepare for CARB E.O. certification testing and increase their chances of passing on the first visit. Smaller shops can rest easier knowing that their work is less likely to draw the unwanted attention of enforcement personnel with affordable testing options. The goal is to continue the discussion of how high-performance shops and enthusiasts can continue to enjoy their cars while demonstrating emissions compliance in years to come.

This free webinar will be held on Friday, April 21, 2023 via Zoom. <– Click here to add to your calendar!

This session will also be recorded for later viewing on our streaming site over at as a $0 video there.

Personalized Training Opportunities

Whether your goal for 2023 is to improve your knowledge of EFI systems, improve the quality of calibration work you are doing, or make your shop more profitable by saving time while tuning, we have you covered. Instead of taking time away from work to travel, we can bring the classroom to your laptop with individual 1-on-1 training sessions available over Zoom. This lets you see the same material, speak directly with Greg Banish, and ask you questions along the way without interruptions. you get personalized training tailored to exactly what you want to learn, all without booking a flight or leaving your shop.

Topics are not limited to existing class materials either. If you are familiar with the underlying concepts, we can go MUCH deeper than most most trainers are prepared to go. Once it’s clear that you understand how the system works, we can look at practical examples to see the ECU in action. You can bring your own calibrations, datalogs, and screen share so we can examine them together and figure out exactly what is happening as you learn lessons that will serve you for years to come.

Signing up couldn’t be easier. Just email directly to and we’ll find a time slot that works. Cost is $225/hr for the world’s best calibration training brought right to your own office.

Calibrated Success Fuel Injector Test Bench Now Supports 9 Different Plug and Play Data Formats

Calibrated Success continues to set the bar for calibration data.

With our latest update to the online data processing tool, we have added support for additional output formats. Direct plug and play data can now be generated on demand for Subaru, Honda, Mitsubishi, and Nissan ECUs from the same raw data collection using our bench.

We have also refined our existing formats with improvements in accuracy and added scaled flow values for GM tuners working with high flow rate injectors in the limited ECUs.

Click on our Fuel Injector Test Bench page and scroll down to view sample files in each format to see exactly what you get from the online tool. Results are available in just minutes, delivered direct to your inbox for easy distribution to your users or copying into your tuning software in house.

Starting with accurate fuel injector characterization data has proven to save hours of valuable dyno time during the calibration process. Calibrated Success been demonstrating this for over 17 years and now you can have the critical (and ACCURATE) data in just minutes for a single injector set and ECU using our tools.

Webinar #4 Ford Speed Density Tuning

Our fourth online LIVE training event will be held Monday, September 19, 2022 1-3pm EST. This one will focus on the Ford Speed Density model that originated on the Australian vehicles and has evolved into the highly flexible model used in today’s EcoBoost systems and Coyote trucks. We will take a look at how this system is fundamentally different than most popular speed density ECUs and show you the critical relationships that make it work. Learn how to understand where you currently are in this complex model at any time and make the right adjustments with confidence.

Webinar #3 Ford VCT Controls

Our third live webinar event will be held Friday, September 16, 2022 1-3pm EST. This time, we will focus on the Ford variable camshaft control systems. We will use HPTuners software to look at how different generations from the 3v “dual equal” to the EcoBoost and Coyote “Ti-VCT” versions of this control work in the EEC. Learn the effects on airflow, spark, and torque along with how the EEC compensates in different strategies.

Webinar #2 Ford ETC Tuning

Our second online LIVE training event will be held Monday, September 12, 2022 1-3pm EST. This one will focus on the Ford drive by wire control system that has been been used from the early 2000’s until today. We will break down how this torque-based system works and show examples from 3v, Coyote, and even aftermarket supercharged applications. Learn how to safely modify these systems with larger throttle bodies, blowers, and modified engines to get better driveability by making the tables work for you.

Webinars Incoming!

Webinar #1 will focus on a topic that confuses many tuners (and even engineers) when working on idle, fueling, variable cam timing, traction or boost control. It doesn’t have to be that complex. I took the heavy math out of PID Loop tuning and put together a webinar that teaches the underlying concepts with practical examples. Learn what proportional, integral, and derivative really mean and how best to tackle them without sitting through 8 credit hours of engineering school.

This session will be held via private ZOOM link on Friday, September 9, 2022 from 1-3pm EST. Cost is $49 to join.

Email for registration.

Book #3 on the way!

My friends at CarTech Books talked me into writing another book. This time, the focus is on emissions and diagnostics. You’ll still see plenty of calibration material in this one as we talk about what it takes to make performance vehicles pass today’s LEV3 emissions standards while keeping all diagnostic monitors happy. Look for it on the shelves early next year.

SEMA 2022

We are pleased to announce that Greg Banish will be speaking in TWO sessions at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas.
