    i use hptuners. better overall price for what you get. i've been making some webpages on how to use it. http://www.fla-thirdgen.org/hptuners.htm

    the software comes with a glossary of what things do. it just doesn't get too much into detail of things like if you make this change, this will happen and if you make this change, you have to go and change these other tables as well type of tutorials.

    Man I sure wish it did though,,,,that is the hardest part about tuning with a computer,,,,trying to figure out which table does what and how it affects other tables

    But ya,,,,HPtuners user here.

    Just to add,,,,It only cost $500 for the software,,,but I would have gladly paid twice that amount if it came with books or manuals that explained what you just described Mrr23.

    don't give anyone any ideas. I already think it's too expensive.
