    After fighting for a week or so with RomRaider and my Tactrix cable, I finally realized my definitions were put in incorrectly. After fixing, I picked up a can of MAF cleaner to start with a clean slate, and flashed a base map from Mikey.

    Even though it was simple enough for even me to figure it out, I've failed miserably at installs other people said were cake. I'll throw some pictures up of the MAF cleaner I used (not sold at walmart, got it at advanced), where the MAF is located under the hood, and what it looks like when pulled out (and what I sprayed).

    I wasn't expecting a performance gain or anything out of cleaning the MAF. I just wanted to eliminate any potential problems that could arise from a dirty one when tuning. Only took me 15 minutes, tops, and may have saved the tuner and myself hours of work.

    EDIT: Thanks to Donkey for the comment. I actually have the IAT labeled with the pink arrow. The MAF is up inside the tube. I have corrected the image, but it doesn't appear to be updating.

    eTuning with Mikey:

    Reasoning: There aren't too many good tuners close by my area. After reading around, Mikey (I can give you his contact info if you are interested) fit my situation pretty well. He was very laid back with everything, but very quick about getting new maps and feedback to me. I would recommend him to anybody. The only thing being that you want to get your tactrix cable working first. The few other eTuning options I found were very pricey. Mikey was a flat rate and very nicely priced.

    Results: Power band is much smoother now. No longer feels as 'tempermental'. I'd say aside from the performance increase and the power band, I really enjoyed the new throttle mapping. He redid sport to allow for full throttle response, but kept the linear feel. The car is still a lot of fun to drive, but much more predictable. I have a much easier time rev matching now with the remapped sport mode. Once again, I'd recommend Mikey to anybody.
    Ive been looking for a good E-tuner, mind sending me his contact info?

    God knows we have plenty of Zachs...and even a couple Claytons...so it could have been possible.

    But Accord is just a Jeff.

    Brandon, have you done anything about the "GR stumble". I'm considering upgrading my injectors, was curious if you have dealt with this or have any knowledge on it. I've never noticed it.

    I have only seen it be an issue in the stis honestly. I didn't think the fuel system was any different though.

    Regardless, it's bugged me since I started tuning. I added a fuel line in there which helped a lot. It is still there though, and I think it will be until I do fuel rails and a nicer regulator.

    I am starting to really point my finger at that resonance for a lot of the sti ring land issues. I know it is a stab in the dark, but after feeling that harsh stumble, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I was told by Phatron that only STIs suffer from this, got ahead of myself I guess -_-
