Protune is simply tuning a map to be specific for your car. Every car is different. For example, my car with the graph above had a 10.5:1 AFR instead of the 11.2:1 target that the OTS map should be hitting. If I protuned for my car, we could get the AFR's back where they should be and I'd make more power than the Off the shelf map and still be safe.
