I started in early December and have been working on learning what to do and what not to do for the past two months.

To give you an example of how much work I have into it my EFI live tune folder contains 969 files in 241 folders.

Everytime I made a change to a tune file I made note of that change and saved it as a new file. That has allowed me to track the changes and learn from them.

However almost 1/2 of the files are Trippin's as he gets an identicle test file for his 2003 as I have written for my 2002.

I also have sent some test tunes to a few members for Fuel Economy Testing and some are stock Tune Files I use as my building Block files.

In total only a little over two months.

But many hundreds of hours of street tuning before dyno testing.

I learned a tremendous amount of information on the dyno and from Trippin's dyno runs last week and yesterday.

What is the deal with sharing or selling tunes? Are there some normal protocol evolving? Will this become a secondary market with "named" tunes being sold?

Can a tune be copyrighted?

Seems it would not meet any type of standard for protection under copyright law since all a tune really is, is a set of parameters for EFI Live SW settings.

Are you guys gonna sell your super tunes? :eek: ):h
If there were interest in the tunes commercially I would probably consider selling them...:)

BUT, that would be done exclusively through Socal Diesel.......:D

I wanted to have enough data and dyno time to prove out the tunes.

I started out interested in only making my truck perform differently based on what I wanted from a tune.

If you are interested send Trippin a PM and inquire.

Thanks for asking,

T:D NY

I think there is a market and will be greater as more folks get more tunes and more folks get EFI live. Folks like me who don't have the skills or the time to do the great work you have done there.

Once the tune is out though - it would be an honor system since they can be emailed around to any EFI user.

There will be a way to send out tunes via e-mail and not have to worry about them being passed around.

FLASHSCAN-2 is due out very soon, that will be the best of both worlds.

Look Here......
