Default link ecu maps?

Long story short, my job is really slow right now and im not gonna get my car tuned anytime soon. Im running the default 440cc tune on the link, so im asking if anyone has a good map that will make it a little more powerfull than the default tune...
thank you guys

First question, why do you think you need more power? You should have more than stock...a few more days/months will give you a chance to do it properly! But, anyway to offer a helping hand as it were...

Ok, so you have a Link ECU. Does it have the FM chip and it has been configured for the WB o2 sensor? Do you have a know sensor? You have read the tuning manual? you know you can do a lot of the tuning on the road... read the book it will answer most of your questions.

By the way, you may not end up with more power by doing this, but you will reduce the chances of destroying your engine until you can get it on a dyno.

Using somebody else's map is the wrong way to make more power. It's an easy to burn up your engine. The best you're gonna do from where you are is to make datalog runs in fourth gear from low rpm to rev limit (if the current tune is safe) with a good AFR targets. The review your log and make map adjustments. Then repeat: upload, log/run, tune the map... You can do a better job than the LINK can do for you in that respect. But I personally wouldn't try to tune the upper end of the IGN curve myself, on the street. A dyno is the right spot for that- and that's where the missing power is usually found.
