TUNING SOFTWARE - Beta testers
Wednesday, August 25, 2004 12:41 PM
Ok.. its that time!

Here's a few requirements..

local to chi-town is preferred - but if you consider yourself an extrememly good technician with both tuning and computers let me know anyway

you need a laptop with a serial port - or a PC card serial adapter. USB adapters are too flakey for testing right now

you need to be at a level where you can troubleshoot problems such as no power to the OBDII port, serial port communication problems,etc. Any questions along these lines will be frowned upon unless you've done alot of preliminary troubleshooting

you need to understand all aspects of tuning an engine. You should know what all the sensors do, what changing parameters will affect, etc.

from the horses mouth...

Quote:

I just really need them to be able to diagnose a OBD port without power, or a flakey serial port. We can't be doing the "testing" leg work for them. It's really a straight forward process and there won't be much "testing" to be done.. but I just need some users that are computer literate and understand the operating conditions of an engine.

We can't have testers that are asking us "ok how do I tune it? What should I change? etc. etc."


Remember.. you can damage your engine if you don't know what your doing. This isn't like a Hypertech programmer where you can't adjust stuff. This will basically make your PCM into a stand-alone type system, with all the functionality of a stock PCM.


So.. if your still interested send me an email: robogeek469@hotmail.com
include your name, address, phone, email
Also the year, engine, trans and model of your car
Also give me your JBO username - I'm gonna check to make sure you didn't just ask about the IAT mod, then try to get in on this deal.. lol

Once I get a list together I'll send it to Keith, then its out of my hands. He'll give you any further info you may need.

Good luck!!

I'm excited to see this finally into testing stages. Keep us updated on how things are going. Wish I could help more, but don't trust my knowledge of car computers and tuning.

GOOD LUCK! <br>

Too bad my engine is in downtime....

After the testing is done, I'll most likely be interested if all that was said in the original post is true.

I'm curious what the problems will be on a usb - serial adapter. I have a nice laptop but no serial port <br>

Up yours! They don't suck. I just can't use this software.

My Powerbook has NEVER crashed. Bet you can't say that about 99% of the PC's out there.
