Lou, looks like RAI is doing exactly what you're asking for....

Maestro does not have the full 130 or so maps that the Bosch unit needs for a full tune.
I think it is around 30-40 or so if I recall.

It has the user ability to tweak but it has its limitations. That is another market that needs to be fleshed out....custom.tunes.

Yeah, RAI wants a 700 for the software and then another grand for a custom tune. I'd rather not, Zhijjawi blew a turbo on the first go round with them. Apparently they lack the skill to correctly tune with Maestro. No thanks.

if you plan on custom tuning then this is worth looking into

Actuator is pointless without the file. I'm not trying to custom tune myself, I want an aggressive k04 file. That is it. I'm not trying to use lemmiwinks, Maestro, or any other self tuner for that matter. I just want the big names to let me know what they have in the way of higher output files.

Ive heard a couple people say getting tuned at Rai was an absolutely disaster and cost them at least a grand...i dunno...I would heavily research.

I dunno if a shop would do a custom file for a k04 or not? Arin had one, but he worked there....i think APR custom files are for stage 3 folks that build the motor, do head/cams etc etc etc.....

Interesting thread.

Did, Arin gave me a lame response. Said it would take some data logging. Probably would take less time and make more people happy than creating FMIC feud threads.

just my .02

Interesting that tuning companies, who specialize in high power output, won't look into it.

he is absolutely right you would have to date log....i wouldnt let a tuner try a "custom file" without it, other wise its just "turn shit up and hope for the best"

when other makes of cars get road/dyno tuned, thats what happens...they do a base pull, set the variable cam curve, set the timing curve, set the boost and fuel trims, and at each step data log the run to check EGT's, ignition knock, fuel corrections etc etc etc....

you have to data log, or you are just "adding +p" with no idea of what is happening after the fact...
