    Is it possible that an off the self tp Cobb tune could be perfect on one car and messed up on another. Same year car,same geographical area, and same mods, with the exact same tune. Because my car runs fine with no issues.

    Did your friend do logs and send them to Eric for revisions?

    Yes, entirely possible.


    I think I'm a little confused here.. did you both buy tunes from Eric or what? If so, why not send him logs to correct his tune? If not, why are you stealing maps?

    No stealing of maps. I just assumed its the same map that he sends out to everyone. Plus my computer is to old to properly run the logging software I had to use my other friends to do it on mine last time.

    How old is your computer?? My tuning laptop is nine years old and it's more than capable of logging. Technically anything that will run Windows XP (released in 2001) should work fine for logging.



    For what it's worth, the whole appeal to Eric's TP maps opposed to any other OTS map is that he will revise it a few times for you to make sure it's running right on your car.

    It's a old windows. It just super slow and takes 15 min to boot the rom raider. Where my other friends didn't take any time at all we are going to attempt to get some log tonight and send them to Eric.

    Has the CEL code been read yet?

    Also, why is it being downplayed that this all started happening with a mis-shift? How consistently has the car been going into limp mode since then?

    I just talked to him today he said 4 times since the mis shift. He said the cel goes away after he restarts it. I have told him to go have it checked the next time it happens. But we should have it figured out tonight after he gets off work. I think the redline mis shift has a lot to do with this problem. But that's just what I think. He also said the other 3 times were just casual driving on the freeway. Couple times after a 3500 rpm shift and one of them was just cruising at 2500 rpm. He has no access to a computer so I am trying to see what your guys think for him while he is at work.

    So as long as two of you paid for two maps, then it's good.

    I bought the tune from eric, my friend used his laptop and did it for me since i am NEW to all this and he is experienced... will be running the logs tonight and sending them to eric. Happened a total of three(3) times...first time was when I was driving 4500 RPM's, second time was when I was driving 3500 rpms in 4th gear shifting into fifth, and last was yesterdaywhen I was driving at 3000 rpms shifting into 4th gear with periods of 3-4 weeks between cel.. was going to have it checked this morning at autozone but the code self-cleared...
