OFT?

I have the OFT v2 but was wondering if it's possible to do anything besides the off the shelf stages, custom pop tunes etc.

In my head I would think that if you have access to a lot of the parameters you could maybe do interesting gimmicks (idk valet mode for example) but haven't been able to find anything besides the ones we all know about

Appreciate any responses

Your question asked if there was other stuff you can do. The answer is "yes"

I can't. I never had an OFT. But I have been on the forum for like 7 years and I am positive I've seen people talking about modifying maps. So I know it can be done, I just don't know how. I recommend searching the forum in the engine tuning category or Google/youtube

It's an open source device. You can custom tune, you just need to find somebody willing/wanting to use your datalogs to revise a tune for you.

Not being a smart asss but if you are asking the question be very very careful what you start playing with. Bad tunes are pretty much the number one killer of engines on this forum. They far surpass the recall failures that everybody gets so worked up about. Valet mode is safe but you start tuning for pops on your own you may get a bigger bang than you want.

Did you look in the software tuning forum?

Have fun. But like @Tcoat said, youíre playing with fire if you donít know what youíre doing.

I have used rom raider to edit the tables to known VVT values for headers and to bump the idle rpm, but I donít trust myself further than that. Pops and bangs are a sure way to clog your cats and you could damage your engine irreversibly. That and pops and bangs make you look like a total twat.

oh yeah don't worry I haven't really done anything myself, was curious to know if it can do anything else easily (I have tried the pop thing for like a week before lol)

Common things to start with are toggling FFS/LC, MAF scaling, adjusting the IAM, changing delay factors, O2 scaling, and VVT adjustment for aftermarket headers. ROMRaider is the tool of choice for most OFT modifications.

V4 tunes do not need a lot of adjustment on a stock car (at least not on mine), though going through the motions to do them is a good way to get familiar with the tools and methods. I think my current tune has a lower cl-ol delay, .9 IAM, and I backed off timing at higher ambient temperatures.

As for advanced stuff like changing the logic for valet mode and such, it CAN be done, but it is well beyond my knowledge level.

A GOOD tune when loaded runs perfectly in minutes. A POOR tune needs hundreds of miles for the ecu to adjust unsuitable settings ie timing and fuel mixture. The ecu does this normally for changes in fuel and operating conditions but should not need to do it to a poor/dangerous tune.
On a second note if something goes wrong when installing the tune your ecu is toast! Not that it will happen but the more you change them the more complacent you become and the greater the chance.
