turbo tuning
Monday, July 08, 2013 11:37 AM
I'm looking for someone with HPTuners and an 97 Cavy 2.4 license.I'll buy the credit myself if anyone just has the software.I'm not looking to pay out the ass, I need a full tune. I live in south texas rio grande valley.

Specs for my car:
Fully built
Turbo
Low compression
3bar map sensor
Aem wideband
750cc injectors
And all the good stuffs.....

Why a 3 bar map sensor?

Planning on boosting 14-18psi and want to be on the safe side...

Our computer does not use map for fueling except for idle fueling, and some rare 97 ecu's. still the rare 97 ECU that does use map, the 3 bar sensor would make the resolution way off.

So the 3 bar will affect the tunning?

On our ECU will affect the timing more than anything, and it could hurt more than help.

I'm sorry but:

"Not looking to pay out the ass"

and

"I need a full tune"

don't go well together in a sentence when talking about a built engine with a completely different compression ratio than stock. You're right - you do need a full tune... but you also need to pay out the ass to get it as your tune is going to take a LOT of time and that's before it even gets strapped down to a dyno for final WOT tuning.

EVERYTHING about your stock maps/pcm is now null and void... everything needs to be done from scratch. It's not easy and a tuners time doesn't come cheap.

As mentioned, you won't be using that 3 bar map sensor. You won't even be using a 2 bar map sensor. You are stuck with a PCM that doesn't read boost, actually... unless you want to do a full harness/pcm swap.

Good luck.
