corey
for daily driving and 99% of your max power output etunez the way to go .. if you have to squeeze every last ounce of power a dyno .. for a combination of the best of driveability and every ounce of power do both .. for the first time im driving a car with an etune ( every other honda ive owned was dyno tuned )and i have to say the driveability of the etune is second to none ( power outputs not bad either i made 226.4whp with bolt ons ) .. vit is amazing and he is very meticulous i have nothing but good stuff to say about those guys .

Hey man,

to be honest with you. a dyno tune would be better for you to get. but if you dont mind waiting to get your car in its top notch stage then i would go with etunez i had my car tunez and i love it.

run the stock tune from fp, then if u add header and exhaust or intake and exhaust get e-tuned. trust a guy thats now paid for his 3rd tune in 6 months lol. its best to wait till your at a stopping point then get your e-tune that way you dont keep throwing money at vit.... even though im sure he loves it like a stripper lol.
the e-tune gives you part throttle and full throttle tuning which a dyno could never do. and then think about how often your at part throttle vs full throttle!

Nothing is more better than tuning in real world conditions but dynos offer a safer way to do it.

How to explain this?

a) 08 civic si vs Skunk2 CAI and Berk hfc 1 run on base stock map is 195hp!

b) 2 weeks latter after auto tune on same spot I get 215hp.

Sounds not right.

And it's a edyno results!!!

auto tune does nothing walroo, so whatever you did, did nothing for your power output.

I suggest you stop trying to compare edyno numbers from different days and basically anything but same day, same spot, same rpm pulls in the same direction.

I can get my edynos to be identical to each other pull after pull.

Don't get me wrong! I'm learning how to tune my car so I'm compering results to see what I did! Like you say I do same spot, same rpm, same direction only not same day . I don't have much free time! :-)
Five days on the row I get same numbers (+- 5 hp) but now this. Think it's to much!
After auto tune I feel car different like it lose same weight.
I'm looking for same knowledge!

Sorry for eng! I need same knowledge her to. :-)

it only tunes partial throttle, it doesn't do anything for wide open throttle...

No. It means that autotune doesn't do what you think it does.
