Mostly I read, shit post here, research car stuff, watch the birds out the window.


I struggle if I'm not busy... Is your employer aware that the work is slow?

I'm sure they can, but what do I know.

I do know that there are a lot of guys that claim to be tuners that load an off the shelf tune (like from Delicious), put the car in the dyno, do a couple WOT pulls to adjust a couple things for max HP and charge $500.

When I had my car done by a real master tuner he had it on the dyno for like 6 hours. I'm sure he did more than WOT pulls. The car runs perfect in all situations, whether I'm carving the hills, sitting in traffic, or trying to find a parking spot.

Yes, it sucks.

And yes, they know. We are so overstaffed it is not funny.

I bet that's the answer. BTW, I think I have enough data for a decent comparison between the stock airbox and the TuRD. It's all in the lower half of the curve though.

Who the hell can do that? And where? I would need to drive all the way down to the California border to take data speeding like an idiot up Grants Pass.
I have a long, level interstate on ramp close to my house. I go out at night when noone is around and do my WOT runs in second or third there. Cruising I just vary my speed a few exits down and back. 1am on a Friday or Saturday works for me.

How far up the MAF curve have you gotten in CL? Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

It is a huge load on a corporate network, I can attest to that.

Our company's public wifi/hotspot bandwidth (which is not a low amount) is almost 75% utilized for streaming during business hours. No matter how much we increase it to, that stays pretty much the same. We finally ended up having to throttle streaming (limit the percentage of bandwidth available to it) to keep overall bandwidth at a reasonable rate.

Uhh, a little over half way on the voltage scale (haven't looked in a while so idk what actual value). The other half comes from OL logs.

A great "first world" problem. On the local news today, University students complaining about poor housing, damp, cockroaches and poor WiFi... Yes, yes nothing much to report..summer news draught.

I will. I'm not afraid of looking dumb here.

Oh! Maybe that's what I'm missing. I thought I am supposed to get all the CL data and then go to OL.


I'll read some more tonight. I'm pretty excited about tweaking the stock ROM a little at a time instead of just blasting the engine with some mystery OTS tune.


MAF scale is just a tiny first step. Sapphireho's airbox gave me the push I needed.
