Will Hypertech Power Programmer Tuning hurt my engine in any way?

No. Hypertech Power Programmer Tuning won’t hurt your engine. Best power is always made when air/fuel ratio and the spark tuning has been optimized for maximum power, meaning maximum “push” on the piston during each power stroke. Damage occurs if the air/fuel mixture is too lean, meaning that there is not enough fuel for the amount of air in the cylinder. This results in excess super heated air which can cause burning of valves and pistons and will also induce detonation (which can break pistons, etc.) Relative to spark timing, too much “advance” will cause detonation which reduces power and can also damage parts exactly as a lean mixture does. When Hypertech finishs power tuning, your engine will run at maximum efficiency yet safely distanced from possible damage due to leanness or excessive spark advance.
