Default What do you tune with?

"You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish!"

The forum staff is trying to get a count on who has a tuner or not, what kind of tuner they use and if you would ever be interested in buying one. So....please feel free to comment in the thread if you like, but most importantly we need to see some stats from the poll.

Those of you who do have Tuners, please include the Tuner name and version in the thread, and your level of experience.

The poll allows for multiple line voting so you can vote:

"I don't have a Tuner"

+

"I Plan on Getting a Tuner in the Future"

So....vote up!

Why are we doing this you ask? Cause we want to explore adding and then expand out the technical area and include tuner tips, tricks and possibly bin files....and some of us are bored.

I have the HP Tuner Pro. My experience level is new and I'm still learning.

Me and Tom are going to split HPTuners and I have a decent grip on tuning.

I used to use an XCal for tuning with the pro racer package, but an XCal handheld unit can only work for one car at a time, and I dont have any OBD-II cars left anymore, so I gave away my XCal with the tunes for my contour with the car when I sold my contour.

As he said, should be ordering it within the month, and then learning everything there is to know about it.

Don't have one and it'll be a long time before I even think about getting one.
