Part 3 – Sending a Data Log to PPEI

If you are currently in communication with a PPEI support technician that is referencing this data log, please skip to step 2 below.

1.      Only create a new support ticket if you do not or have not already created one previously. It is very unlikely that a support ticket hasn’t already been created if you received these instructions from a PPEI Support Technician. So before creating a ticket, please verify that you do not have one before proceeding. Creating a news support ticket when you already have an open support ticket will only delay the process of having your logs reviewed and the issues resolved

a.     Complete all required fields Create a PPEI Support Ticket Here

2.      Locate the email (PPEI Ticket) containing the correspondence with the PPEI Support Technician.

3.      Reply to the email and provide a brief description of the issue that tells us the conditions and tune levels that were present with each data log you send. (Ex: Log 0001: Maxx Effort tune 0-60mph at wide-open throttle, Log 0002: Economy mild acceleration under load) - Attach the EFILive data log that you pasted to your desktop in step 8 in part 2 above and send the email.
