    High Country Tuning is open for business and ready to fulfill all of your Western Slope tuning needs! I have been tuning Toyotas for over 3 years now, and I love the enthusiasm and dedication that Toyota owners have for their vehicles. It's a fun business to run, and I'm excited to see so many Toyotas on the Western Slope! I'm happy to answer questions, talk shop, or schedule an appointment.

    I use the best tools available to customize a wide variety of Toyota vehicles. Let me know your specific needs, and I can help you out!
    Benefits of tuning your Toyota include:
    • Smoother shifting
    • Reduced gear hunting
    • Increased power & torque
    • Enhanced throttle response
    • Exceptional towing capability
    • Potential for better gas mileage
    • Improvement in overall driveability

    New price list!!!

    In a world of ever-increasing costs, High Country Tuning is happy to announce that we have reduced some of our prices! The backend costs for tuning certain vehicles have gone down, and we're passing those savings on to you!​

    HCT Price List.jpg


    High Country Tuning is based in Aspen, CO; right on the border of Colorado's High Country and Western Slope; however, it is a mobile service. Remote tuning locations within a reasonable distance or for an additional fee can be arranged. I cover the entire Western Slope, from Glenwood Springs to Grand Junction to Montrose to Durango. If there is enough interest in a specific region (roughly 4 tunes depending on travel costs), a full "tuning event" can be arranged to justify traveling farther distances.

    Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!


    Here is a thorough video detailing the tuning process and what to expect when getting your 3rd Gen Tacoma tuned:

    The Overland Torque Tune has undergone extensive testing and data logging. The tune for each model that OTT supports is refined on a Dyno to ensure that we are getting the best performance to accompany real world driveability. We don't rely on just the "butt Dyno" to validate the tune. OTT is the only Toyota tuning calibration that has a complete catalog of replicable Dyno data available to the public.

    Let me know if you have any questions, I'm always happy to help!

    2nd Colorado tune. A Custom tune for a 2nd Gen Tacoma 6-speed MT. The owner had both an aftermarket cold air intake and aftermarket exhaust, but the mass air flow sensor was not happy with the set up, and would even throw a code from time to time. With the tune, we were able to scale it all together so that the CAI, MAF, and exhaust all work together properly, and now this truck is a beast to drive! The owner can finally take advantage of the aftermarket parts.

    Got a tune put on this nice looking 4Runner. As of now, I'm only tuning 2015 - 2019 4Runners because those are the only years supported by HP Tuners, which has the most robust tuning capabilities. We (the Toyota Tuning Network) have been talking with HP Tuners though, and hopefully tuning support will be expanded to more years soon!

    I continue to be absolutely amazed with the Overland Torque Tune. I got it for the added performance and low end torque/HP increase, but it has turned into something of an eco tune for me. The first picture is a bit deceiving as it was from my trip from Aspen, CO (8,000 ft) to Colorado Springs, CO (6,200 ft) with an empty truck, but it's the second picture that is the most impressive! 22.9 MPGs on the return route (6,200 ft back up to 8,000 ft) after loading up with 5 sets of Cooper S/T Maxx tires and wheels (about 400 extra pounds).

    Met up with some great folks this weekend and ran a few trails. What a fantastic community of people! Looking forward to meeting more enthusiastic groups and owners in CO. Thanks for letting me join the fun!

    Got this 2017 Tacoma all set up on the Overland Torque Tune (OTT)! With bigger tires and a lift, the truck will drive so much better with the added torque from the tune. The owner wheels quite a bit too. So, the smooth, enhanced throttle will be a lot of fun on trails. Enjoy!

    Another beautiful day for a tune in Aspen! No more laggy throttle and struggling up mountain passes for this 3rd Gen. Also, this owner does a lot of towing, which is where the Overland Torque Tune (OTT) shines! He also opted for the more aggressive "sport" ECT which ramps up the throttle and keeps the truck in the powerband of the RPM range. The sport ECT is NOT for MPGs, but it IS for partying!

    Another beautiful 3rd Gen upgraded to the Overland Torque Tune (OTT)! This truck is carrying a lot of extra weight, has 5.29 gears, and is used for towing quite a bit. Thanks to the tune, it now also has optimized shift points, enhanced throttle, and extra low-end torque for the best driving experience available!

    Another fun day of tuning trucks and talking shop with owners! This truck is fully decked out, and the Overland Torque Tune finally woke it up! I even got a call from the owner on his drive home because he couldn't contain his excitement any longer about how much the tune improved his truck! 1f606_31eb692b317252a6a903cdc8668dc54446e9fa91.png

    What a fantastic day of tuning trucks in Durango! Had a ton of fun talking shop, sharing stories, and watching owners faces as they discovered just how well their trucks can actually drive when properly tuned. Can't wait to visit again!

    Here are only a few of the trucks that stopped by to get that Overland Torque Tune (OTT) magic.

    It is a common misconception that only heavily modified vehicles can benefit from a tune. Not true. There are a wide variety of options to fit your specific vehicle and driving style.

    The owner of this vehicle was looking to fix the constant gear hunting, laggy throttle, hard shifting, and underpowered feel of his mostly stock 2022 Tacoma. The Overland Torque Tune fixed all of that and more! Now, he is able to enjoy a responsive vehicle that drives the way he wants it to!

    Any Tundra owners out there lookin for a some extra pep, torque, HP, and maybe even a little MPGs?

    This customer was having some throttle issues while crawling off-road. We made a few adjustments and installed a custom tune while we were at it. All that extra weight and oversized tires can really slow a vehicle down, but we gave it some new life. Enjoy the new tune and have fun on the trails!

    Currently at Overland Expo Mountain West, and it's a Taco party up in here! This is just from the parking spot. Been lots of fun talking with other owners and sharing tips, tricks, and war stories.

    It's been fun, but I'm heading back toward the Western Slope today. Hit me up if you're interested in a tune!

    Here's one of the trucks that I got to tune at Overland Expo. Looks like he's ready for the zombie apocalypse with his set up! And driving across that wasteland will be much more enjoyable with some extra power and smooth shifting from the Overland Torque Tune (OTT).

    It's always fun to see the wide variety of customization/modifications available for the 3rd Gen Tacos.

    We haven't been posting much, but we've been tuning trucks! The word is out, and people love the Overland Torque Tune (OTT)! We'll be in Crested Butte this weekend to service those hard-to-get-to Toyotas.

    DM, text, or call with any questions or to set up an appointment!
