Open Source tuning has been done for many years on your platform. Same thing as an E-Tune.

You still need a cable/laptop/software.

I didn't see that. COBB "pro-tuners" usually charge $300-$400 (street/dyno) with the latter being a dyno tune. MANY ppl trust e-tunes.

I personally don't use them, I prefer street tunes and dyno tunes. So it's $225 per tune or $225 for the 1st tune and less for an E85 tune?

If they'll do $225 for the 1st and $75 for the 2nd.... that's a deal anyway you look at it.

Edit:

Called em, it's $225 PER tune....

But if you're dead set on getting tuned via e-tune.... Look into CamTuning... Cameron knows his poop

I used to get my Subies tuned by him when he came to Austin every yr.

You still need a laptop and an OBD2 cable. And a wideband AFR gauge. The AP's logging capabilities are insufficient for tuning purposes.

E-tuning works for simple cookie cutter setups (stage 2, VF upgrades, etc), but for larger and more complex setups (like mine) it's a lot less viable because an in-person tuner will give a lot more attention to the details then a tuner who is working on a half-dozen simultaneous tunes at once over email.

I was just going to get a simple tune for my short ram with a stage 1. Couldn't get a map from perrin or Cobb for my year. In the link i provided all the data logging is done on the ap, I even checked at Cobb if I need any sensors they said no, but these places have bs'd me before. I won't have the money for this for a while anyway, so maybe someone who has done this will post their experiences before then. Thanks.

You need a wideband AFR gauge/sensor. Look into an innovate LC1

Innovate LC-1 Digital Wideband Controller with Sensor - 3769 DIYAutoTune.com

This is why sometimes it's better to get a street tune / dyno tune.

The AFR readings are supplied by the stock sensor and the stock sensor only. It's not accurate once you switch to open loop fueling. You need a wideband for that and you cannot connect a wideband to the AP.

I drive 4.5 hours to Plano Texas for tunes. 1-3 hours isn't anything.
