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.

Registration for this live closed ZOOM session is required in advance. Cost is $95. contact to join.

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. You can sign up through the SEMA Education links on their website for these FREE sessions. First will be a panel discussion on Tuesday 11/1/2022 at 11AM on “Emissions Certification, a Deep Dive” followed that same day by Greg’s 3PM “Keys to Running a Lucrative Tuning Business”. Check the official show schedule for exact locations and any possible changes in times.

Guest Lecturing at Kettering University

Greg Banish presenting calibration material to senior engineering students at Kettering University

In March, I was pleased to have the opportunity to come back to my Alma Mater of Kettering University as a guest lecturer. I still remember Dr. Davis joining the (then GMI) Mechanical Engineering department when I was a student. He now runs the engine development labs and guides the Formula SAE teams at Kettering. Times may change, but the science behind engineering and calibration does not. It’s good to see that with minimal prodding, these bright future engineers quickly discovered the underlying principles behind electronic fuel injection controls. No doubt, they will be able to apply this lesson to several of their current projects in the garage and at future competitions. I was proud to be invited back and share my experience with this generation of innovators.

Advanced Ford Training Course

We are proud to announce the return of our popular live, in person Advanced Ford Training course. We will be hosting a course once again with the host of our very first live class, VMP Tuning in their new location in New Smyrna Beach, Florida on April 22-23, 2022. Much of the material came from our original SCT Dealer-Only Training course, but it has been updated to include other software platforms and is now open to the public. Come learn from an experienced OEM calibration engineer, ask questions, and see the latest goodies at VMP while sharing lunch with some of the brightest in the industry.

Registration is $1395 per person, with a $100 early registration discount available through January. As with all Calibrated Success live courses, class size will be limited to make sure that everyone gets the most from their attendance. Contact to sign up.
