    Logical. You don't have to do actual tuning yourself with it though. It's just a means of flashing a map just like a Cobb Accessport...and is much cheaper if you already have a laptop on hand even. You can purchase a Torqued Performance map for $85 which Eric will revise and tailor more to your car, and tweak based on logs. It will be much better than a Cobb OTS map....plus you now have a better tool for logging. I mean Cobb APs are simple plug and play tools, but Open Source and a Tactrix cable is virtually just as easy. My two cents though

    Thanks for the info. I haven't found too many quality threads on open source tuning. Most people make it sound extremely complicated. I wasn't sure of the reliability of having someone else create the map and worried they could accidentally do some damage to the ECU. If it is as easy as you made it sound, thanks for saving me the money of using Cobb AP! I do have a nice laptop, so I guess I just need the cable and the software. I expected I would plug it in and see something along the lines of the Matrix "code"! But as I said, I am new to all of this. Thanks again!
