First car I've tuned in awhile. I'm back in ATL for the rest of August. :)

Mike @ Batlground called me up and asked me to tune this car (k100, not kpro). The first pull, the car kicked so hard when it hit VTEC that the dyno lost the RPM signal. The base map for a greddy kit with 550cc injectors worked terribly on this car. After tuning, you can barely feel the VTEC x/o now, and that's how it should be. The car made a peak of 257whp, but that was a 4th gear pull. I didn't have an untuned 4th gear pull, so the tuned run above was the final 3rd gear pull done.

Pretty darn good for 7psi. How long did it take you to do the complete tune?

The owner of the car only paid for 3hrs of tuning. Part of that 3hrs went into dealing with the k100, which is a pain.

Thanks again Chunky, i know i can always count on you to pull through!

Customer is extremely happy!
Glad to hear it. I'm available for the rest of august too. :)

BTW, for anyone that didn't realize, vteckidd = mike @ batlground

Nice numbers! Did the boost spike and then taper or did it hold?
He had 7psi by 4000rpm but the boost would fall off half a psi as the revs climbed. The difference in spool time untuned vs. tuned was a large part of the low rpm gains.

Cool, did u use any kind of BC?
Nope.

Awesome, I saw this thread on IA. When I get my kit on, i'll probably come to you guys.
Try and do it while I'm still in town. :D

nice numbers. what other mods did the car have? what was the setup?
Just a bolton Greddy kit with the intercooler option (who the heck buys one w/o it?) + injectors + catback. Had a crazy looking stereo in it too, but that's not really relevant. :p
