Default buying tuning software, need advice

neptune, crome or ectune pro?

i want to be able to tune both my cars...

im not gonna take it and tune everyone's car. i just want to tune my own ---- without having to pay for a license on each car...

im reading, about ectune, and i dont want to permanently install the emulator cause then i'd have to have the laptop in the car the whole time? i just want to use that while tuning.

Which emulator are you talking about? Ostrish? There are batteries in the box so you don't need a laptop all the time. You only need it when you tune. If it's your own car, just take the free version of crome...

ectune and crome pro are more complete tho...

List setup details and needs on both cars...maybe they are different? I might suggest a different EMS for each...in some instances.

I recommend and use CROME alot.
However, for a baller status build that could use optional outputs, I've been recommending ectune.

Also, I'd take ectune over neptune based on the GUI.

basic hmt turbo kit. not going to go over 10lbs on this one. ef chassis with a d16a6 with a jumper harness so i can run the chipped po6. t3/t4.

totally not a race car. i wanted to get opinions of experienced people. I'm thinking basic crome will work... but i think i'd be happier with the pro crome in the long run.

i think ectune is beyond my scope at this point. ill get it when i have sleeves and forged internals.
