Postby 240man91 » Fri Mar 02, 2012 2:42 am

ok so i have been buliding a new kat for my 240 an my ecu has a rom tune on it but it was tuned by e-mance from eby but i can no longer get ahold of him. i dint kow if he has quit tuning ecus or what but i was thinking of going stand alone, can anyone tell me what all i need too do this an how it is done. i have a;ways just rom tunned my turbo setups an by going stand alone is his tune going to make it hard?

If you're going standalone, you're going to need to wire a lot of stuff.
Look in Nistune and Calumsult, those are daughterboards that allows you to tune your stock ECU in realtime.

If I were making that much power I'd want a custom dyno tune to make sure I'm getting the most power + not blowing stuff up.

Yeah i would go that way if i didnt live in monett, mo the only shop around that can do that is like 50 miles away an they suck bad. I know two people that have had the hondas tuned there an one ran too lean an burned a valve an the other ran way to rich. An they want 75 an pull.

man get some nistune with the wideband support, the thing 'should' almost tune itself.

Emance is a joke he has basically stolen other peoples hard work to get himself cash..if its a purchase he will respond(well, new purchase) but nothing warranty or return..

for a brief time he tried ,real hard. As a person who tunes my own its a pita doing other peoples cars tunes. SO many small things can completely throw it off, and getting some people to find those issues is a lot of work.

for the record mod'd stock injectors are a huge d!ck pain to tune.. current project.

Yeah i have the 810cc deatworks but i am sending them with my ecu to jwt. An yes nistune would be the way to go if i had a dyno close to tune it on an ik you can tune it in real time, but i am not a tuner lol. I have tuned a sr once it ran nice but i could never get it to pull as hard as it did after he had it rom tuned.

2 of my friends run JWT tunes. Friend Harry runs a JWT tune for his sentra se-r with 550's, JWT S4's and gti-r t28 311whp 291wtq. Friend Chris runs a JWT tune in his Z32 with crower 272's, nismo 740's, all forged motor and a pair of 2871's for 703whp 640ish-something-I can't remember torque. JWT is some good smoogem. I was going to go the JWT route till I got a crazy good deal on my Nistune.
