Discover Intelligent Tuning
RTU Tuning division is the youngest from the family. Divided to Engine and Body section, both results from our research and racing experiences. Proven competition components causing massive aerodynamic downforce combined with minimum aero drag on the race track, are now transformed to street legal “add-on” Body Parts, considering the design aspect as important tuning factor as well. The brand new RTU Engine, designed from scratch, using our patented Full Technology upgrade is in current development, and its universal design will allow accommodation to major automotive platforms and provide superior performance with incredible fuel economy.
The easier way of RTU Engine tuning is part technology usage dedicated to “Retro-Fit” market. This deals with supplying truck fleets and military platforms with electronic software and devices which will enhance the economy and operating temperatures of existing diesel engines. Being 60 year old technology, the diesel engines of today have not had any real design changes since inception other than adding electronic monitoring devices controlled by an ECU (engine control unit). Although we do not get into anything internal to the engine in the retro-fit market, we do enhance the operating protocols. An example here is the 2005 Chevrolet CK3500 we prepared for Senator McCain a short while ago. As a proof of our technology and know-how, we took his truck which had a 325 hp Duramax diesel with 575 lb ft of torque from the factory and did external modifications to add 192 hp to the existing 325 hp and 343 lb ft of torque to the existing 575 lb ft while getting 44% better fuel economy!!

This example, showing what we could do existing platforms, has led us to meet with TACOM and initiate discussions in designing retro-kits for the Hummer, Bradley vehicle and a 6.5 ton troop carrier.
As expressed above, diesel engines have had no real design changes for many years and with not only the cost of fuels we are presently experiencing but the sulfur dioxide emissions that are coming under fire, there is a direct need for a better design.
