What to do - tuner issue on VEX1 ecu

Unread postby studleyjay126 » Tue Jul 25, 2017 11:38 am

I am starting to realize that I really need to data log to be able to tune, which you already know, but for me this is all new. It is hard to dial in with out it. With that said, I bought the base Tweecer, only to realize, you can't data log. Now I am stuck with a decision - get a different tuner or pay $200 to upgrade. I am not really happy with Caledit, and the support is hit or miss with Tweecer. Tuner Pro doesn't have my strategy for download, so I would have to pay to get that made up (unless someone knows more about getting a VEX1 for it)

I already have a lot of tied up in my truck putting everything together, so I really don't want to spend a lot of money on tuners and tuning, etc. Once I get everything dialed in, I probably won't mess with it much after. I am just looking for ideas on what to do for cost efficiency as well as usability. I supposed I could sell my base Tweecer for a few bucks to help recoup something, but on one probably wants the base unit.

you cant dial it in without logging, you can force open loop and attempt to make corrections hoping nothing is off and go from there, thats about the only option when you don't have datalogging abilities, sct diablo etc... have been doing that for years, shooting in the dark and hoping for the best, it can be done but not ideal

for $250 you can buy a brand new quarterhorse direct from moates, that would be the best option

you can have all the money in the world tied up in the truck, if its not running correctly all that money is useless, the tune aspect is the most critical

what all issues are you having that you need tuned out? yea it would be very difficult to sell a base tweecer these days

The bucking issue was the first issue. I really wanted to log to see obvious problems that I could fix myself. But I wanted to have you do a custom tune at some point, but you can't even do that with out logging. If I go with QH, don't I still have to buy BE or have someone make a file to use with Tuner Pro?

I don't understand 'its u to you' ..? sorry, mispelling? I take it Tuner Pro logs too, right? Would it write and log from a Tweecer? Or should I just get a QH and be done with it?

Ok.. sounds like my best bet. So, can my current Tweecer tune be converted to work with the QH? What kind of cost is involved in created the def file that I would need from you? Thanks for all the advice. Really appreciated!

yep u can use the same tune

its $600 to create a def file for non premium members, $150 for premium members, but you dont need a full def file just some dashpot settings spark table and isc multiplier, along with datalogging, thats really nothing at all and i can prob knock that out in a couple hours so its no biggie considering you plan on becoming a premium member on the other vehicle

Sounds great! I'll get back to you within a few weeks (maybe 2 or so), and we can talk more about it. The truck runs good enough for now, so I can still drive it just fine. I'd def want the trans stuff in the def file as well, as I like messing with the trans, but we can talk more later. Thanks again and I will getting back you soon.

Alright, I'm ready to start on the serious tuning. The gas mileage has been killing me. I would like to paypal you the $150 to write the def file for me. I want to make sure it has ALL the trans tuning options, as the one I'm working with only has really basic options. Let me know. I'm planning on getting a QH shortly, and then I will have you do the actual tune for me.
