Default New tunning site

Found this and thought it might help more than a few out.
Has all the basics and then some. I was looking for tips on my VE table......Paul.

I just bought this on ebay...

Good price I think...plus comes with 4 credits left. I must choose carefully though Hopefully, they will support my Malibu soon (they currently support the 3.9 and the VVT 3.5...not the standard 3.5 like I have).

I was wondering when a copy of Jerry'* tuning notebook would surface again. For those of you who are able use it (it may be a DHP only thing), Eddie'* "Table Modifier Thingy" that can be downloaded at the bottom of the page rocks. I've been using it to tune since it first came out and the latest version can do just about anything.

I've looked up the specs on the website overall, and it seems it'* going to stay. Their host is http://www.dreamhost.com/, and with it, they get a half a terabyte of space and 5 terabytes of bandwidth for $5.95 per month! That'* pretty good. They provide 3 instead of the regular 2 DNS addresses, so they probably have some really strong hardware backing up their hosting.

Who'* Shawn Horton? His email address includes his own domain name. Now, his site is a free CMS, Mambo. As of now, it'* just a template, and that'* a strong piece of evidence for something really nice. The personal site is also hosted by Dreamhost. The amazing amount of space and bandwidth shows the site is most likely hosted by Cpanel or a variation of it. Shawn probably with all this has easy access with about 3 clicks to install and uninstall Mambo and the Wiki system. These hosting content management systems provide backups from time to time, so your information is there to stay, unless he clicks ~4 times and wipes it cleanly off the server...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What I mean to say is:
If you have tuning information, opentuner3800.com seems like a very reasonable place to post it. Please help benefit the 3800 tuning community, namely sandrock for the sake of the Series 1, by using that site to show all your tuning goodies. From my quick review of it, it'* solid unless Shawn decides to take it down to save $5.95 per month.

I would be lost without Jerry'* notebook and have access to his personal site (passwrod protected).
I had the oppertunity to meet with him in Montreal at Foghorns house before buying the dhp, he helped talk me into it.
The table modifier thingy makes it easy, I think at least similar to the hp tuners but I have never seen/played with hp'* 'live'.
I'm still seeing a blip of .5 kr on part throttle heavy accel, was thinking it was maf realted but now digging in to the ve tables to smooth it out. Laptop is currently down but should have it back up this week.

You will have to help me thru it O'Neil.
I am expecting my PCM back from Intense next week.

I have a KR spike of 12 on part throttle heavy accel

I have a spare PCM but have not been able to copy the bin file yet.....

Do I need to do that or can I just flash the new DHP bin file to it and start from there

You can use the DHP bin file as long as you do a full rewrite on the pcm.
