Default when is the next Xenocron / HMT tuning learning session?????????

damn chris, when the next time your gonnd teach how to tune with crome, or maybe even ectune? i got about 5 people in the boston area ready to throw down some money. i am telling you, my area is really an untapped market, but i need someone to show me this. there is the one shop a few towns over (you know who) that alot of people who buy my ecus wont go to. i am about to get another s10 and set it up as a mobile street tuning station so i can peddle my ecus and do some street tuning locally.

even if i have to pay top dolla for a private session, i am down. i start a new overnite job the 10th so its gonna kill alot of my time.

who else is down to spend some cash to learn to tune??

I'll give you a little advice that I've learned over the years of tuning different cars and setups in my area...tuning knowledge doesn't come exclusively from a "classroom" type of environment. Getting to know the basics of a program one on one with someone experienced with it is great as a stepping stone, but you'll learn tons more once you actually get out there and do some work first hand. You'll start to find that the tuning portion really isn't that hard, and the mechanical/electrical issues usually play a large role in what you can or can't do. Hands on experience is the best way by far, but you want to make sure you've got more than a few tunes that last under your belt before you rush out there to try and make some money off this. Do things in small steps, make adjustments in small steps. Start off very conservative and then work your way up, but always leave a buffer as a "just in case". Datalogging is your best friend, and log your AFR's to match up with timing, pressure levels, RPM, throttle postions and crossover's (if possible), and always listen for knock. And always check the plugs and learn how to properly read them after you think you're satisfied with the tune...they can tell you a world more about what's going on inside the cylinders than just the logging alone. Even the slightest bit of knock usually shows up on plugs (black pepper spots for light knock) and the wells (extreme base) of the plugs can clue you in to proper afr's under load.

You can make a hell of a name for yourself if you learn to do things the right way, and you can also make a hell of a name for yourself if you blow a lot of ---- up. I've moved on from Honda's exclusively to DSM's and Subaru's, and you'll find you have to adapt to newer vehicles and ecu setups as time goes on and people start to upgrade.

Buy Jeff Hartman's book on EFI tuning. Well worth the $30.
