While I'm sure there are many people on this board that can help, I'd ask Kobayashi. I know he ran almost the same setup for a while (before he got crazy and went for 500hp...). I'm sure he could give you a good base starting point.

Before I get myself into this "Need For Speed", I was wondering how difficult is the UTEC to tune? I know you hook it up to a laptop or PDA, but thats it. Is it just pretty much trial and error? What parameters can you change?

You can change just about everything. It comes with base maps, which a lot of people use. I'd suggest using them and making fine tuning adjustments from there until you feel comfortable making your own maps.

Tried to email you but it wouldn't let me, so here is a copy/paste


"I'll be there Saturday, and I'll take your for a spin. QM 11.12 (SO CLOSE BUT NOT 10's) *cry*

and I'm back in town, I'm sure you've noticed by my posting habits starting back today.

Make sure to bring your cam for some website pics!"
