    Got a QH for a steal on another forum from a guy getting out of stangs but while I teach myself to use it I would like to get a good baseline tune. Anyone have any recommendations or know someone who burns mail order tunes? I know they're not optimal but I don't currently have a nuts car either.

    Also, now that eectuning.org is back up is that the place I want to be at for teaching myself to Moates or is there some other guide/place I should be going?

    Thanks SN95forums.

    it seems as though keith 'addermk2' has a pretty good thing going on here, from what i've seen browsing around a tad he's highly recommended, i wouldn't want to step in on his scene any

    I appreciate the recommendation though :cool:

    The more knowledgeable guys there are to help with Moates or tuning in general the better IMO.

    i have been dicking around with it a bit. you need binary editor to make it easy on yourself. if its a manual its easier to do. if so turn off tip in retard. turn off your erg and thermister. that alone helps quite a bit. if you have different components like a maf or injectors program them in. plenty of people to ask and lots of info. welcome to the late nights of reading.

    Thanks for all the info guys, I'm going to do some reading, been banging around eectuning.org, get the correct software and then just browse through all the settings without changing anything to get a feel for it. However, first I need to:

    -Fix what seems to be the coolant hose under the PI manifold leaking
    -Pull my t-45 and ship it off to [email protected] for a rebuild
    -Find someone local with a IRS to buy/install becasue my stock rear is making noise and I've always wanted to swap one in
    -Get a wideband
    -Get some legit oil/water gauges, throw them in an autometer cluster bezel and I should be good for a 93 octane tune and start driving the car daily again from spring-winter

    So that Lasota manual is $75, is that worth it? I'm good at following written instructions and $75 plus the $125 shipped I paid for the QH is nothing compared to the price of a single dyno tune. Also do you guys recommend any software specifically? Binary Editor is what the Lasota webpage mentioned and a few other ppl on here mentioned. Is there anything else I'd need?

    it's cheaper to just have me do it, and teach you through the process.

    The manual is worth every penny , Don is one of the best tuners in the country , and am I the only person here that realizes your car is a modular , and yes BE is the only software to use and you will also need a strategy from Adam

    Choosing Keith to do my tune was the smartest thing I ever did.
