Plug it into a binary to ascii converter. Google doesn't read binary.

Hah. Funny how difficult it is to find relevance for college classes. RACECAR isn't a money pit... college is.

Memorizing ASCII values is a complete waste of time. Binary to hex to decimal, however, is priceless.

I'm gonna head up to the shop here in a bit and try to catch them before they break for lunch. Who knows.. maybe I'll be able to strap in and get the baseline out of the way today. Wishful thinking!

They were BUSY. That's a good sign.

Everything checked out as far as I'm concerned. It looked like they build cars for a lot of people. I think everything in there was a domestic V8. They had an all motor low 9's Firebird hanging out in the corner. Chris has a blown G8 or GTO (can't remember... I didn't get to see it) in the 600-700 HP range. That's another good sign. He ought to be very familiar with our motor.

Is there anything I need to know about the EFI Live process before I get fixed? I haven't done much reading on that tuning software.

I told them I'll just bail from work whenever they can squeeze me in for a baseline. I think we're shooting for Friday or Monday. Good day so far.

How many of you guys have bought HP Tuners VCM Suite and tuned your own car? Now, or in the past.

Here is what I have been pondering this afternoon.

I can buy a seat of HP Tuners Pro with 8 credits for about the same price I can get an initial dyno tune for. But from that point on, it's all free. I never have to worry about anyone else working on my car. I gain another life-skill (gotta love that!). If I screw it up, I have no one to blame but myself, which is far less stressful than when someone else screws you over. Those are the pros.

The cons... I still have to buy a wideband setup. I'm kind of limited to street tuning unless I can pay for a little dyno time and datalog the pulls. I dunno, maybe that's actually common? And last, but not least, the steep learning curve. It's not so bad for simple bolt-ons, but I'm going to be forced to learn this stuff if I want to tune my own cam.

Why shouldn't I do this? Talk me down... or start giving me pointers!

It's never a good thing to talk someone down, I'm slow in that department but I do know some Basics but from HP tuners, that's it. Data log and log and log til you get it bud. If you can swing it? Why not? Plug it in and play around til your ready to start flashing and rewriting your tune.

The headers are here! It has been a good week. Discount Tire got me new rears in 2 days, and TSP got me headers in 3 days.

I have decided to go with SCT Pro Racer for my tuning software. The only reason is that I already have an SCT handheld. That brings my additional cost down to ~340 + a wideband setup. Now if I can just get this kid's high school graduation out of the way... I'm ready to bust some knuckles!

So I've had this problem with my SCT tuner since day 1 (I bought it from a member). It wouldn't read the serial number and ID from the device, and it wouldn't complete a device update. I even spent an hour on the phone with SCT letting them run my laptop remotely... something I would never do under normal circumstances. They told me they couldn't get it to update and that I would have to send it in for a $60 RMA and they would update it in-house.

I decided to revisit this problem since I'm going to be needing my programmer. Turns out... it's a shotty USB connector in the unit. When I held the cable taught against the device.... everything started working like it was supposed to. Updated and ready to go.

I think I'll break this open and replace the connector tomorrow at work. It's not under warranty anymore anyways.
