Post Anybody do an NA Tune for the K8 with MS?
I'm hoping to acquire an MS ecu in the next few months, and in preparation for that have downloaded TunerStudio.

I'm trying to figure out the software as best I can, while learning about tuning in general. The amount of information is staggering, and I was hoping to dig through a couple of existing tunes, and compare/contrast to see where people had successes with their own projects.

If you've tuned a K8(NA, not boosted), and have your files saved, I would be extremely grateful for the opportunity to take a look at them!

It's kind of a shot in the dark, as most people swap to a KL prior to tuning, but this is the best shot I have of finding what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

Seriously, who would waste money to put Megaquirt on a K8

Someone planning to swap down the road, that prefers to risk blowing the K8 over a built KL...? It comes down to economics, and it's honestly not that strange. :shrug:

You should be able to start with a base map from an NA KL, it might be a bit easier to find. It'll more than likely be a bit on the rich side, but at least it'll put you alot closer than a turbo map. This might be helpful:

I had started to mess with a KL tune, but TunerStudio wasn't reading it properly(didn't know which firmware the tune had been created with, it gave multiple errors).

Thanks for that link Redline, I had been looking for that thread -.- PT search is useless.

Yep, just use a KL base map and just change the required fuel, that will get you started.
