    I use tunerpro rt. I thought it would be that simple, too. There's a bit more involved.

    Nuts. If you don't mind asking how much did the whole works (Quarterhorse and software) cost you? I can get a tune from a renowned local tuner for around $400 but I like the idea of being able to make changes on my own as time goes on vs paying for another dyno session later.

    The emulator itself was 250, tunerpro rt is free.

    Geesh Quarterhorse and BE is only $50 cheaper than taking the car to my local tuner to have it done......

    except that changes don't require another $400 visit. Don't waste your money on BE, either. It's not that great, not for $100, anyway.

    Not having to pay for changes is nice. I've looked at BE before. It looks like I could easily input a MAF transfer function and injector slopes in BE. Problem is I look at things like load and spark advance and I have no idea what I'm doing there. I feel like even if I buy a Quarterhorse I'm going to have to have someone besides myself look at it or tune it anyway. I don't think I have quite enough knowledge to do it myself. At least to get maximum performance out of the engine.

    Heard about THIS little guy the other day and picked one up. So it took about 20 minutes to add it to my Quarterhorse today, then I paired my laptop (has Bluetooth) to it and played with my tune wirelessly, which was indescribably awesome. After that, I datalogged it all the way home on my phone. I have arrived in the future.

    That's awesome. I was wondering if there was a way to do that
