A few mo. back I did find someone that sounded to me as a very knowledgeable person. He was leery of tuning my car because he was not familiar with MegaSquirt. I offered to send him the link to Megatune software so he could mess with it on his own time but it would probably be an expensive proposition for me regardless.

My Miata is non aspirated and I'm trying very hard not to sacrifice driveability for the gains from using a stand alone ECU so I agree about the tip in etc.

I have also considered driving the little bugger to DIY but I have no clue what they charge and I'm not looking forward to an over 8 hr drive.

I would not let someone tune my car if they were not familiar with the software unless they were going to commit to a written agreement that included all aspects of the tuning I wanted and a fixed price. I'm not going to pay someone $500 because they are incompetent when a competent tuner may only cost $300 because of how fast they can do everything.

Jerry charges $125/ hr I suspect a full tune by them would take 2-3 hrs. I don;t think they would assume that anything you have done is correct. I think they would start from the beginning.

Totally agree with above

Maybe later on when I gather some funds

I need to get v990.4 installed, I tried using it but had the issue with it giving up after the first use. Then I had other issues with MSII so I threw my MSI back in...I'll give it more use the remained of the week.

Thanks

Just for those that are afraid to adopt, this is the WOT fuel curve that it ended up leaving me with after today. The dips at the beginning and the end are due to accel/decel settings being off.

i'm setting this up now -- i copied my airdenfactor, thermfactor, and edited my lambdasensors file (my AEM uego never worked right at 9.72 + ... for hte formula, i needed 9.0 + ... )

Anything else I need to set? I know for MT you need to set up which MS you have, what kind of WB, etc.. where does all that go?

EDIT: Nevermind... For all TS newbies, just go to "File" -> "New Project", it walks you through the settings.

What about if you are going from the old version to the new version ?

Is your LC-1 set to "instant" display? Even my Logworks is noisy, I'm sad.

I'm 99% sure my LC-1 is set to instant display. I had it changed at one point but I'm fairly sure I changed it back. In order to get it that clean I had to run the signal wire back behind the passenger seat and then along the door sill to my harness. there is just too much BS going on in the center console for me to get a clean signal.

One last question for you Jeff (sorry for hijacking), but what is your zoom set to in that log?

I think you, Brett, and I need to get together and just have a tuning day. I'll just save a backup tune and **** my stuff up intentionally. That way we can go through and fix it step by step.

You will need to update your inc files if you made changes to them. Updating to the new version will overwrite them.

I keep a copy of my modified ini files in another folder so that I can just copy and paste them after an update.

ctxspy: Are you using the controller or gauge type AEM? If it's the controller type I modified my ms2 ini file to accomodate the 230x controller type aem WB. It works great.

Just rename the file MS2ReferenceTables.ini and put in the tunerstudio inc folder

If I connect to the ECU and click on "Detect" do I still need to copy those files or does that only get me the ECU type etc ?

For some reason I had a lot of trouble getting the files saved in the right place


Thanks
