first car i tuned is my accord this year in july. its NA, but tuning is tuning. I got the grasp for it now and im fairly confident.

i've tuned some high compression engines(11.5+) as well as some boosted engines since then. I've also e-tuned, lol.

First setup I tuned was for myself. Not really much of a tuning job, but it was about 4 years ago at least. A complete hackjob setup really, mostly cause I was broke as hell. It was a 91 crx dx, z6 swap, homemade obd1 conversion harness (taken from a 91 accord and an old dual-point ecu), dsm 450's controlled by a vafc, and a 14b with the carb spring wastegate setup. :P I had nothing really to tune it by, with the exception of how it sounded through the rpm's, and by checking the plugs after a hard pull. Amazingly, the motor lasted 6 months of solid abuse...never once gave me any beef. I ended up wrecking the crx, and sold the motor. Second time I tried tuning an afc that way didn't turn out too good, as evidenced by broken pistons and a broken rod. :P

indeed there are.

probably less than 20% of hmt users actually tune their own cars.
