hybrid tuning
 
im inerested in buying a cobb tuner to replace the tune i have now but i am planning on doing a hybrid motor swap this winter will the cobb be able to tune for that motor

Yes. Do you have a tuner in mind already ?

diesel paul 08-02-2011 12:11 PM

not really i though the cobb tuner had built in tunes an the ability to tweak them i was just curious if the cobb tuner can tune for the hybrid motor or would it be better to get a custom tune i just want to be able to have differnt tunes available to me whenever i want to change them

pzr2874 08-02-2011 12:51 PM

The OTS maps will not work for a hybrid map.

You will need a custom/pro tune for it.

Custom tune required. It's not like you get a table where you go down a check list and click on the items you have.

Unless you're running a large turbo setup or will be switching back and forth between different fuels (93 <-> E85, 93 <-> race gas), multiple maps are pointless anyways.

i would like to mess around with differnt fuels and boost levels i like tinkering an i o like to take it on long trips so multiple maps would be useful

You're not in boost on long highway trips anyways so a different map would not help. For example, Cobb's econo maps have been known to be BS for as long as they've been out. You get better results on the regular map and controlling your foot.

so what would the best approach be like is there something i can get for my laptop to download onto my car with or do i have to take it to someone

You could try Open source tuning. Other than the cable it's free and works with you laptop...
Here is the link to give you an idea of what you need:

Here are a couple of videos that you could watch to give you an idea of how it works.

Again this is what I use and have been using for a long time.

way above my head. Maybe someday I will start to understand this stuff. To a tuner for me. Besides, getting this desk top computer into my car wouldnt be easy; and I would need a really long extension cord for logging anything.

I use a cheap laptop with XP I got for $100 or so. Works great.
