Hey guys,

I want to begin learning how to tune and I was just wondering if there are any tuners out there who would point me in the right direction. Are there any books i can get, online tutorials i can follow, videos i can watch, or threads i can read which will help me?

I appreciate the help

There are several books by Jeff Hartman and Greg Banish on tuning. The Opensource subforum has plenty of stickies to read.

Hey Sidewayz,

Thanks for the shoutout.

Now FASTuuN and SubieTuuN come in a valuepac.

So, not only will you learn to tune EFI but you will learn to how to tune your Subaru specifically.

Cobb is the preferred tuner. However there is a ton of opensource focused
tuning in the course as well.

After all you really are accessing the factory ECU and that's what we teach.

You'll learn what features you have to control your engine plus how, when, and why to make the adjustments in order to successfully tune your vehicle.

And don't forget you'll have lifetime access to your course.

Thanks,

Joe
