Default Getting started

I am running stage 2 OTS right now but am thinking of switching to e85 and maybe TGV delete, but I would really like to tune it myself.

I have been doing some searching and found some good information for Cobb's site but I guess I am looking for more of a "tuning for dummies".

My thought is to get a good understanding of the data by completing some data logs and comparing the data. Maybe some cold vs. hot days to see how the computer reacts.

Then start with a simple mod like bigger injectors. Then tgv deletes. Then e85
Gradually work my way up to more complex tuning.

My questions is:
Is there a guide out there I haven't found yet?
What are the important variables I really need to pay attention to when data logging?

How did you guys learn?

Thanks

Thanks. I actually had looked at that but unfortunately I needed something to describe all of the terms and variables.
Then after hours of searching I found this:

This is exactly what I have been looking for.
I hope other people will find this link easier
