Adjustments within the XCalII

Has anyone besides tuners adjusting their spark, A/F ratio, or any other odd parameters within their xcalII or III? Can anyone explain what adjustments would yield the most HP/TQ? Or do all of you just leave the tune "as is" and load it to your ecu. The only thing I have adjusted is my idle.

I have: Global Spark Timing Adj., 0-2000RPM Timing Adj., 2000-4000 RPM Timing Adj., 4000-8000RPM Timing Adj., WOT Fuel Adj., Rev Limiter Neutral/Drive, Idle Speed Neutral/Drive, Tire Size Adj, Axle Size Adj.

Basically the Global Spark and the RPM ranges allow you to Retard or Advance Spark, The WOT Fuel adjusts fuel % at WOT to a limit.

I am not sure but I believe the person making your tune files has to unlock certain End User Adjustable Options when they make a file for you.

I assume these adjustments have to be made with some caution?

Of course because if you don't know what you're doing you could damage your engine.

So if I read this right there is a little adjustability from the base tune you get on the sct?

If the tuner gives you user adjustability, yes.

For full control of your tune or to completely tune the vehicle on your own yes. But the handheld can be programmed with options enabled (by your dealer) that allow you to change minor items (limited.) The preloaded files from us have options enabled as well.

These options are not enough to completely tune a vehicle; they are there to allow the customer to make minor tweaks to the tune.

I see you have my tune , If you need things changed I am willing to help , just randomly +/- timing or fuel could hurt your engine , you need to have a AF Gauge and the ability to see if +/- timing is helping any
