Now that I got the tuner, both Aaron and myself have been going back and forth, trying to find a good starting point.
Now for the not-so-good news. I got a HP Tuner, which goes down to 1997 PCMs. Keep that in mind. Now then, I went with a 97 PCM because I knew the PCMs were the same between the L36 and the L67 (difference being the L36 uses the 60E and the L67 uses the 65E), so I figure the options like boost control could be turned on in the L36 tune.
WRONG. At least I think so.
Turns out even though the PCMs are the same, the OS for each is different. Meaning I can't put in boost control for an L36, nor can I put in 4t60 tables in the L67, or at least, that'* my impression. So, the one file I can use is the 1996 L67...which HP Tuners do not support
Right now I have a modded L36 file in the PCM, just so I can move the car out of the garage and get some gas for it.I drove it around the neighborhood last night, and aside from getting NO boost, despite me running a 2.2 pulley, it drove ok. I may very well have boost, but the MAF tables are so out of whack the PCM may not even command it.
Any thoughts on this?
EDIT - I guess putting out the mod list would help somewhat, just to get an idea of what'* going on. 2.2 pulley, S2 L67 injectors, P&P Gen 2 with matched TB, stock 93 L67 MAF sensor, ported lower.
