Re: Open source tuning

I have no interest in tuning myself but have learned a lot from the discussions.

Re: Open source tuning

Mildly interested. It's something I like learning about, but I grown to love live tuning. With all the other BS in my life, this would be another distraction. Maybe next year when I get one project finished and move to the new play toy.

Unless the price is that which I could not pass up.

Porch Monkey. It's cool, I'm taking it back.

Re: Open source tuning

I said "yes" simply because the lock and key everyone's got on these archaic dinosaurs is stupid. It costs big money to do anything with these trucks and that includes tuning.

Hell, these trucks are anywhere between 6-14 years old and they're old technology. Like you said, David, gassers have been getting open-source tuning junk for years....but only because the gains are marginal. Of course, once someone figures out that big power is available just in the tuning (diesels), those that have.....well...have it. Those few who have it figure that those who don't can get bent and fork over big bucks for their secrets.

It's really sad. But then again, if cracking code is your bread and butter, you should get paid.

I just sold the fuelie set up off my mustang (going carb.)this week because I got tired of the eec glitches. I hope the diesel tuners can get past all the eec crap and make it alot more friendly .

.....o wait, we are not talking about a durmax are we?

Even though there are programs like EFIlive, the tuners STILL make lots of profit because there simply are not enough people that can do it themselves or even care to to even mess with it. Most everyone shares there tips and tricks in the 6.6L world.

I'll take it one step further, I'll leave it to a trusted tuner but be sure and explain what I'd like. Alot can go wrong with a "newb" tuning his own ride..... IMO of course

Re: Open source tuning

I'm always interested in learning as much as possible about anything I have. I'm really interested in how all the computer components work and how they control the drivetrain; and have the ability to tell the computer exactly what I want it to do. Of course I have a LOT to learn first.
