In your case, here is my suggestion. Before you get all excited about buying this anytime soon, you might not need it. Now I say might. N/A, your A/F ratio is usually on point. I know you did some air modifications but the biggest modification to alter it was your camshaft upgrades. So by doing this, you A/F ratio is in question and is POSSIBLY off. Now before you spend hundreds of dollars on a tuning device you don't need, go to a dyno shop, tell them you want to check your WHP/TQ ratings along with your A/F ratio. They will tell you if you are lean, rich or stoich. I highly doubt you're lean, so being rich or stoich is your possibilities.

Now I am giving you this advice from personal experience but only difference is that I have a newer computer than yours and we have 2 different motors. I don't know how the 2.4 computers handle to camshaft changes. On my ECOTEC after a camshaft change, my top end was crap, found out it was cause I was running very rich. I bought an SAFC-2, turned it down (from an original dyno tuning) and I was good from that point. You can do the same thing. Install isn't that involved and you can find your PCM pinout codes.

If you have anymore questions, just ask.


Come on now. I think what most people on this site do not understand is the N/A cars and the GM charged cars will get the biggest gain out of this programing. I'm not saying turbo cars will not gain, just saying I feel the N/A and the GM charged cars will gain the most.
Why?? N/A our cars run rich from the factory. Yes doing some mods like intake, cams etc.. can throw that off. This sytem will allow for us to tune better than a SAFC will. For a N/A car we could advance the timing some, correct fuel etc... I think with a person who knows how to tune doing it, a N/A car would pick up some unreal power with a set of cams.
For the GM charger guys, the GM flash retards a lot of timing. This is done so they can give a warranty, but this is killing power. There is many turbo cars not taking in timing out. Give some timing back to the GM flash and BAM!! see some sweet numbers!!!
This program will also help the turbo people to fully tune as well, but it has been proven you can run a turbo set-up with out fully programmable computer and make power. The turbo guys could use a GM reflash to start and program it to there likings.


Listen, he asked what he could do now. Sure this big whoopdie doo program of HP Tuners will be super duper great, but guess what, it's not here! People want to modify, people shouldn't stop modifying so they could wait for a program to release or any other product...FIND OTHER OPTIONS! Plain and simple, he asked me for my advice, I gave him my advice and a bit of my experience. Yes, the HP Tuners will have a ton of options and bla bla bla but if someone wants to help from running slightly rich, there are other programs like an SAFC that will help...might not be the best...but it helps.

I'm not trying to do another page long argument with you guys, I was mearly answer his questions.

That's when this thread was started....a whole year has gone by, nothing. Granted, the first post wasn't saying "who is interested in actually buying one if it's made?"...this was a thread started saying "We haven't forgotten about you guys", which means they were already doing "research".

I'm sure when the RSX-S first came out companies had computer devices for it with in a couple months of its release, as well as turbo kits and body kits etc etc.

If it comes out...super...but don't get your hopes up, look in other places.

Oh of course I know that but that shows how much enthusiasm they had to actually research ad develop such a product.

it will be released, i read the HP tuner forums daily. MANY MANY times they the HP Tuners employes confirm that the software is made, they are just waiting for a company to produce and send them the USB cables they are going to be using. They said the holidays made a big setback for them. There are lots of post in there forums of people asking when and if the 4 cylinder software will be released, each time they assure us that its going to be released.

THIS WILL HAPPEN

I'm thinking it's a joke, as the GM SC for the ecotec has been rumored to be coming out for almost as long as this software. I do believe that this software will come out, I'm just not sure if I'll still have my car when it happens. I've already been waiting optimistically for over a year, my plans are pretty much on hold until this happens.
