I've never dyno tuned.

and yes, the feature was available, it just never really worked well in megatune but the feature was there and I did use it.

But I used to "autotune" by using Phils VE analyzer feature within MLV by using logs a lot.

The autotune he built into Tuner Studio is more or less that same thing, just live or "auto."


I am highly confident that Phil's Autotune feature will get your VE table 95% of the way there if done correctly. and using EGO will get you the next 5%. Even in boost, even going from gasp 10 to 15psi suddenly.

Yes, his megalog viewer did have a similar system. However it all depends on how that is used. I have been using megasquirts since 2003 and didn't used to dynotune either. However I am saying that as a general statement. If someone does not know that they need to set the base timing properly, they shouldn't really be using the autotune either. Autotune does need to be setup properly. I have seen way too many cars blow something up because they didn't set their wideband and EGO settings properly. it was a recommendation for the person, not everyone!

it should still be tuned/checked.

it's not about sloop, it's about latency. Where things happen a hell of a lot faster when the motor is spooing at 7000rpm over 1000rpm, so the MS needs to adjust for the physical delay in the action/response.

If you don't know how to tune and don't know the basic principles then you shouldn't be running water/meth. I'm not being a snob. Tuning is for the most part, easy.
