Default Tune Software

Anyone here using some type of tuning software?

I decided to go with EFILive. I don't know hardly anything about it but I want to be able to data log on the street and track.

I have an use hp tuners when I finished all my motor work. There was a learning curve but I like the fact that it was rather easy to get the hang of. The data logging was real helpful.

I considered HPTuner but was turned off by the attitude on their forum and I talked to a couple of guys that have HPTuner that needed EFILive for some capability, I don't remember what the feature was that was needed. I have considered buying HPTuner also so I can compare the two.

I installed 2 WB's and wired in my data logger into my console so I can start it anytime. I need to find some time to learn how to use it.

Maybe down the road I will buy HPTuner also, I think it would help me learn with the bigger support base.

HPT is a little easier to use. EFIlive has more features. You can do more with it.

HPT has more coverage.

Tunercat can do some things neither of the other 2 can.

Tunercat, oh crap, another software package to consider. Maybe I need to make my own program.

Ed, I haven't forgotten to send you my log files. I have been rebuilding my kitchen and haven't had time to work on my Vette. A few things I need to get done on the car before I do any logging to send your way.
