Base tune from someone else's box code?


I bought a PRP from you a little while back. As well as a mafia and a 3"tube.

My question is, can I use a tune from someone else's car (same car, zx3, different computer code)and input the data to a tune for my box code? I know of a few people who have very similar setups to mine, which were already dyno tuned.

What I am planning to do is tune the car with the 3" mafs tube, stock electronics, and about 10psi of boost, then install the mafia when i get everything running right, tune it again, then turn up the boost. Is this good logic? The mafia instructions said to tune the car before installing it.

Or since I have a different box code, should I just start from scratch when you send me a base map?
