Never tuned... want to try

I have been lurking here and at evom for about a year now. With nothing really to say. Well I have something now. I am blown away with how much information is available. I have probably read 150 pages of threads to do with ecuflash, and evoscan in the last weak. I plan on buying a tactrix cable soon, and getting evoscan at that time. I have the lattest and greatest EcuFlash, and have been looking around stock 9 roms I feel like I am ready.I have not done a single mod to the car yet. What I want to do though is get a wideband o2 and 3 bar jdm map sensor and tune the crap out of my stock car. Logging first and removing any knock. Then mivec. And finally some decent afrs.

I have read most the relevant threads between evom, openecu, I can't help but think I have grasp on this.

I would like to hear from anyone who has actually self tuned. As well as any nay sayers, if I can't argue that I am ready than I must not be.

There will be no knock to remove in a stock tune. You will just be removing a lot of fuel, since the stock tune is so rich. I would do AFRs first.

There's nothing to nay-say. This is a great thing available to the Evo community that many other car communities are not so fortunate to get. A tune on a stock Evo IX will make a huge difference while keeping you 100% stock-appearing and stock-sounding.

Do it. Read everything you can, log, make little changes, and see how things are effected. That's all I do and I'm 100% completely satified.

Do some logs to start. Review those as much as possible before you make any changes. Most of all the stock 9s I work on and tune, definitley have knock, surprising but they do. Let us know how your looks. Always too rich and a little too much timing.

From what i have read, you can pull better numbers using evoscan yourself, then most dyno tunes or other flash tunes available to date. I'll be making the purchase of evoscan paired with a zeitronix wideband myself.

"you can pull better numbers using evoscan yourself,"

What do you mean by this? The real question is what to do with the numbers.

Using evoscan, I heard that people are pulling additional horsepower out of Evo's that were dyno tuned or flashed. It looks like evoscan/ECUFlash is the way to go.
I'll continue reading up on it, but you input would be appreciated.

^ +1 Take baby steps and make little adjustments, the reason tuners dont get as much out of the tune as they can is because they dont want to have to worry that the car will blow up when you get a bad tank of gas or you decide to turn up the boost after you have left. good luck and have fun, LOG LOG LOG
