in fairness, sentramans was from scratch on AEM.

go to english and get tuned man, or learn how to do it your self.. i cant believe you haven't blown that engine with that t25 an no tune lol.

are you on nistune? or calum r/t or ?

If its just a basic tune off a car that runs pretty good especially on a factory based ecu, it should be fairly quick but still $450 is about right.

Im sure a/f and timing both need adjustment if your just on a base tune.

not really on a base tune. it's a dyno tune of someone else with the same setup ... i wish i had my own dyno..
2012-09-19 06:17:24
i use virtual dyno..

and theres no such thing as the same setup, even if all the parts are the same the engine / sensors may react differently.. this is why nissan and even jwt used really broad spectrum tunes to cover any discrepancies between engines/sensors/weather Ect.

but again.. what do you tune with? do you have a wideband? maybe i can lend a hand?

im just running a calum r/t .. would i have to buy a Wideband and Nemu?
2012-09-19 06:26:13
i think i can use my nistune on your calum but yes u need a wideband..

how do you know what your afrs are if you dont have one?

nemu wouldn't be needed, but its a nice upgrade if your lookin to make shit fancy like i am lol

I am sure that we went through this once already. If english is flat rate then go for it. My rates at trackforged are all flat rate. I spend the money to get the right treatment. My retunes are way cheap after the initial tune.

Reasons why tuners are unsure of how long it takes could be many reasons. I for once have seen some straight ghetto setups come on the dyno to where people keep swearing that the work was legit. There are many variables to why tuners dont say o yea ill get it done quick and it's guaranteed.

Sohc turbo civic came into get a full tune done. Fully built yada yada civic. Did all his own work at home. Came to get tuned, shit was all fucked up. He went ahead and blamed them for why his car was smoking, sounded like shit and why it just would run right. Forge have him discounted rates and turned out to be builders error with installing piston rings upside down...

Long story short, if you think its too expensive please by all means go find somewhere else to tune. Instead of trying to label a shop to a typically based price everywhere.

im still cant decide if i should go AEM or Innovate. haha, AEM needs no calibration, but innovate is more accurate
2012-09-19 06:41:56
Go innovate
2012-09-19 06:48:27
i have no exp. with either of those, only my zeitronix which works great.
