Hey everyone, I was just wondering what you guys prefer, and why. A dyno, opensource tune? Or a piggyback, such as the COBB Accesport?
By considerate you mean "nice to people?" hahahaAre the opensource gaines considerate when compared to accessport?
No difference in HP gains that can be had, except the cost, but it's not as much of a difference as some people say, because in the end you can resell the AP when you decide you don't want/need it...Are the opensource gaines considerate when compared to accessport?
Not since COBB came out with the ATR software, anyone who want's can tune their own cars ECU for whatever mods they have just like OS...I prefer opensource mainly because the required hardware is considerably cheaper. The AP flashes the stock ECU in the same manner as opensource, so not much difference there. The AP comes with off the shelf stage one and two maps, where as there are many free user created off the shelf maps available for download for opensource, up to and beyond stage two. Both opensource and the AP allow the ECU to be professionally tuned, however just about anyone can get a cable and start tuning opensource, but I believe you have to be liscensed by Cobb to tune with the AP.
As far as dyno vs. street, I prefer a mixture of both. Work out all the WOT stuff on the dyno, then tune it on the street to tweak and smooth things out.
Thanks sasquatch, I do know the jist of it, I just got my terminology mixed up , and I just wanted to know who liked what and why, just for preference reasons!OP: the way your first post was phrased it appears as though you have a lot more reading to do about tuning. The more you learn yourself the better you will be later.

The ATR software is free, so as long as you have an AP you can tune your car with it, if you want to do it as a business you may need a license but could in theory tune with the car owners AP...Doesn't that cost extra? And does buying the software (assuming it's not free) give you full rights to start tuning client's cars with it?
