I was actually just wondering to myself how to get into tuning, where to start, what to read, and what not. More so just for my own knowledge rather than actually messing with my car.

Thanks for the link, in for any more good guides/info.

Ya man, all of it was so interesting and is a good foundation to start on and really understand it all. And can also read Unabomber's Manifesto. A wealth of knowledge in both.

We have a tuning guide and worksheet that covers some of the basics:
http://forums.cobbtuning.com/forums/...et-for-Subarus

You can also find descriptions for every table in the help menu (F1) of the AccessTUNER software.

We offer our AccessTUNER Race software for free to version 2 AccessPORT customers (see link below to request the software), but most of our customers prefer using the OTS maps or getting a custom tune from a professional. As such, you may not find a lot of fellow tuners specifically using the AccessTUNER software in the forums. But, the software is still quite powerful, including all the tables and monitors of the Pro version (and features like real-time tuning and 2.5L speed density) just limited to your single vehicle. Factory engine control unit (ECU) logic for Subarus is going to be the same regardless of the software you are using, so look for info from multiple sources. The biggest Subaru self-tuning resource is going to be the RomRaider forums, which covers open source tuning software. There are even some AccessTUNER software users on there. The naming conventions for tables might be different in the open source software compared to ours, but the tuning strategy is going to be the same. Digest as much as you can before attempting to tune and when you do start to tune, make small changes at time while doing a lot of data logging.
