You'd need to learn how to tune.

Streetuner can help a bit, but your the responsible one now.

I really think you should ask yourself that a few more hundred times before your willing to put your motors life on the line. Tuning is complicated, it can be learned (more or less) but it is complicated none the less.

Ask yourself, not us.

Cool yea

Yea your right i wasn't even thinking about tuning my self. i was just wondering how difficult it is. i know that the street tuner is easier than the protuner. i didn't know if the street tune more or less would ask you what you wanted and ajusted it that way. that would be nice! ok well thanks for the reply guys

Street Tuner isn't 'easier' than ProTuner. You still need to know what it means to add timing, retard timing, fuel properly, etc.

StreetTuner doesn't ask 'Please enter the number of horsepower you wish to add: ?'.

Sorry.

Ridiculous. I'm so tired of the typical NASIOC grumpy replies.

The guy is obviously new to this, he's asking about the USABILITY of the Streetuner. You couldn't figure that out from his post?

Having not used Streetuner, I would guess understanding the concepts of tuning/loggining/etc.. is much more difficult than the software itself.

There is a guy named WolfPlayer on iwsti.com
Look up his intro to tuning in the EM forums over there. He's incredibly helpful and knowledgable for people looking to DIY tune their own cars. There are also a few books on the topic that you should read before trying it yourself.

good luck!

I am sort of interested in the Street Tuner, but if I'm not inclined fully in the wonderful world of tuning, would it not be easier to go to a shop running the Protuner Program, pay a $100 less than the StreetTuner and have at it.

yeah, if you have no desire to continually tinker with your own maps, definitely get a protune.

Hey I agree with you there, to bad I'm in the Military and don't own a tune shop nor was trying to play any type of "role". Merely making a "simple" comparison, sorry if I placed a period at the end of the sentence versus a "?". If your post was not a shot at me Sorry for the mix up, if it was a shot at me..."Have a nice day"!

That wasn't clear to me at all, especially given his comment about it basically 'autotuning' itself. Take your whining elsewhere.

Useability on the software is great, and it is the reason i switched from UTEC.
