Tuning the car is something that must occur regardless of the make.Totally and appreciate your help/advice. I want to make it clear, I was not plugging around experimenting on my own, that is what I was instructed to do by a certain unnamed tuner that comes recommended by quite a few on this forum.
Needless to say, I won’t be moving forward with him. This is a bit tough, I’ve been in the automotive industry for 20+ years and haven’t had this much trouble working with base values, one off situations, vague info, and horribly user unfriendly stand-alone ecus ever. I think part of it is my generation came a little after these, I never really got to play around with “real” mechanic stuff you know. Tuning a Porsche, BMW, or AMG, or even my GT500 wasn’t a niche secret sauce of what works by each individual car that has already been cut into, built up, and chopped into whatever a previous owner wanted.
My GT500 was like, cool, this is what works with this setup, buy parts, install, watch values, make small adjustments, tons of support, the end. That was like duplo blocks compared to this, which is like doing differential equations in braille while drunk and missing one of the variables needed to make it work.
I like it, it’s a challenge, it’s just a learning curve, and a steep one.
The issue is that your not familiar with the platform.
