PW tune

Hey Tom,

Do you have any tunes or have ever tuned a Powerworks equipped car? I will be needing a tune when i get my smaller pulley, and was wondering what you will need...will a dyno with an A/F curve suffice? or do you already have some PW tunes laying around?

My local tuner is out of state and will be gone for a while, and im an impatient bastard, lol

I agree, but cant take that much time off work for the drive, i was basically thinking just taking my Xcal2 datalogging certain stuff, and getting an A/F for a fairly safe tune, till Mark gets back. Im sure I could send you the tune we have in the car now, and with the datalogs, and you could whip up a pretty good tune for me to get by for a few months.


And for the record, Mark builds some of the sickest turbo F150's out there, wouldnt be surprised if Tom has heard of him....

If you can send your tune I would be able to get it much closer , If youe willing to do that and it is NOT a .xtr or .ll3 file and willing to log then we should be able to get it to work

Ok, cool. Im not sure what the file extension it would be, nor have I datalogged anything with my Xcal2 before (we just used Marks laptop with SCT dealer software already on it..). PM me with pricing info, and quick directions on howto pull the tune off the XCal2 and put it on the computer, and how to setup the Xcal2 to datalog standalone, with what parameters you need me to log.

Thanks!!
