I have experience with the Haltech E8 Standalone unit (supports full sequential injection, boost control, supplemental injection such as methanol or water, launch control, traction control, etc) in my highly modified Dodge Stratus Coupe that made over 500fwhp, and a FAST XFI standalone computer in my Buick T-type that has run mid 10's in the 1/4 and will run mid 9's after this engine rebuild (crank bearings went).

I honestly got a kick out of this guy calling himself a "Pro Tuner" when he's using an Apexi piggy back unit and just clicking buttons. You call that professional?! LOL. Prove to me that you actually hooked it up right and clicking those buttons actually changes your ECU parameters (IE, turn your super bubble maker off and show us the AFR changing), and then we can further this conversation.

I looked up your APEXi VAFC :

Some tuner gizmos can do datalogging, but not the one you are using. Scangauge can't do datalogging for offloading data, but it can connect to the OBDII port no problemo.

hahahaaa as for you sir you are just a cereal box tuner that does the same thing that have been done for years and still doing(nothing new). the (+) side of tuning is NOTHING compare to the (-) side of tuning. i bet if you should try to tune on the lean side you would burn soooooooooooo many engines because its not what you are used to LOL. what im doing is totally new to you that's why you don't understand and maybe next year you will start to understand a little more. this forum has a long way to go but ill be here.

Your videos are proving nothing. I can hook up an Apexi unit to any car and have it say whatever the hell i want it to say (for example, your rpm's are 1/2 of what they really are).

BTW, what's so special about what you are doing? You have no way of controlling timing, so all you are doing is taking fuel away. How can you possibly call that pro tuning?

I've tuned on the lean side many times and all my engines were fine. Good quality after market computers with high resolution fuel and ignition maps allow you to do that. Couple that with sequential injection control (ability to control the pulse width of every individual injector separately), wideband inputs for each cylinder, and EGT's for each bank, and you have enough information to push the limits. Nevertheless, a "pro tuner" will know that the lean threshold is dependent on the engine configuration.

We the trustworthy members of Ecomodder.com are not newbie bashers.... but when a newbie comes riding in on his sparkling unicorn, we make sure others aren't glamored by it, unless they can prove the unicorn is real.

How is anyone supposed to believe that your device is accurately reading fuel trim when it can't even display RPM correctly? You're not fooling anyone.

You all can officially ignore this guy, he was spewing the exact same crap all over the hhoforums.com site back in 2008 and 2009 and ended up getting banned in 2010. The interweb never forgets.
