hey guys i was just wondering how you guys tune YOUR cars? a majority of people on svtperformance tune their cobra's with an internet tune from a professional tuner, then their are a lot that do a dyno tune. my question is how do YOU guys tune your supra's? do you tune it yourself with a wideband? or have a tuner dyno tune it? or do you guys do online tunes also or is that just out of the question? any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks -justin :bigthumb:

Sry, what's an "online tune". I try to tune my car as best as I can with a wideband, then I head to a dyno shop and tune it on the dyno to refine. I let the pros do the final touches.

Well at full throttle i smack the dash and yell, "come on baby!" Especially in a race it helps with the tune or something because when i do that i start pullin

thanks guys that is what i'm really starting to consider myself actually. an online tune is a tune that you can pretty much do yourself i would imagine. basically professional tuners in the "SVT" world offer online tunes and for the most part they actually work. they charge $125 for lifetime tunes, tons of people do it. but i'm starting to think if i had a Dynojet Wideband Comander i could just do the tuning myself on the road. what wideband commander do you guys use? i've also heard of the zeitronix wideband unit.

The commander is the shit (it's the one I want)...

I'm going to be getting a MAP Ecu and a commander soon :)

yea i'm undecided really, a pro would do the job, but i could save money in the end or risk losing a lot of money on blowing up my engine

well, i usually use the "E" note tuning fork, but when i put race gas in it i can tune it with the "F sharp" tuning fork for the extra HORSEPOWER!

but all kidding aside, here are some things i have seen people tune with from worst to best:
1. adjust fuel pressure regulator (not recommended as not very precise)
2. piggyback unit (like S-AFC or superAFR) can be done yourself with a wideband datalogger
3. AEM EMS (not recommended unless you are a PROFESSIONAL as the program is very complicated, believe me i have it)

it's pretty easy on the right dyno... on the street, full-throttle is easy, but part-throttle is a lot more difficult... but not impossible w/ data-logging.
