i expect it will become something as good as ap if not better for the rx8, well, as long as the dev supports it and dont do stupid things like cobb and signed some agreement with just 1 person.

im new to tuning so when i feel completely comfortable about it i will just grab the software and start messing around.

I thought you had pro-tuner fairly sorted? what were you missing, or was it a bricking issue or something else that drove you to purchase new software with no map definitions?

PT is a big buggy and there were issues people ran into and no support. From what I was told anyway.

yeah my car is sorted on protuner and running fine . It's just that i can't tune for anyone else here in nz . Would not recommend anyone else buy it due to lack of support and all the issues with it.

Brett, glad you finally started looking at this. Im just waiting for $$$ to buy it as well.

I emailed the guy at epifan suggesting that you should be able to buy the personal edition and use it to upload an image generated by someone else on Pro, but not edit it. Never heard back.

My PT Brick stopped communicating with my ECU, yet it works with another car I have. Im trying to find someone locally that has a OpenPort dongle to see if it will read it to determine if its a PT Brick issue or OBDII Port issue (Mazda Diagnostic tool seems to communicate no problem).

PT bricked my ECU twice..and never did provide any functionality over the AP

I was on board with the Beta in the hopes that support would allow development of something more functional than the AP

Didn't happen....

Ok , the good news is that i now have my turbo 8 fully tuned on Mazdaedit. The actual tune was easy as i just had to download the Protuner tune and reload it with Mazdaedit .
The bad news is that it took me forever just to get it all to happen . Not a smooth process at all .
Am currently working with them to get all the definitions properly labelled and sorted so it is easy to use for future users.

Had a major scare last night ... Made my first changes to the tune (to delete cels) and the car went straight into limp mode . Spent a few hrs online with the Russian and eventually got it sorted . Not impressed with the difficulty of getting this thing going . Needs a high level of commitment for sure .
The end result should be really good however . There are many advantages over Protuner - the main one being the much reduced likelihood of bricking the ecu.

Triying to come to grips with the logging/dyno features . Taking me a while to figure it out . Didn't realise i need to be a software engineer to use this

You can choose your sample rate .



This dyno feature looks very cool - can see me using this a lot ... The CSV files from accessport load straight into the program !!!! However - it is really easy to fudge the results or just stuff it up completely.

Ouch, that's a big drawback. Do you know if it has a way to pull data from aftermarket gauges?

The Hymee Protuner us no longer supported, or even sold that I'm aware

I bought a copy back in 2009 and never even got the base map that Hymee has to supply with your VIN token, which made my $1k purchase a total dry hump in the keester. If you want to chance dealing with that slimer then be my guest.

I don't know who is telling you the Cobb Protuner version is not available. MM has exclusive on remaining RX8 AP devices, but not the software. Know this for a 100% fact as I have strong contacts within Cobb (was one of the original Beta tuners for the RX8 AP prior to it going public and their local shop does my alignment/cornerscale work).

I personally don't see what this offers above the Cobb. I tune other Cobb APs. The Protuner version just allows you to lock out the map so that nobody else can access your work and makes the owner entirely beholden to the tuner for changes etc. Cobb is adamant that there is no tuning advantage over the free Racetuner version. Anybody knowledgable can offer the same service MM does via datalogs etc. just with unlocked maps is all

.

I wish cobb would release there sorce code, so we could edit some names and simple stuff.
I have been working with the powerFc for the rx7 and they have a perfectly good knock sensor but its aways reads below 1, like .35 is normal driving and .50 could be knock. makes me think cobb internal code is reading that wrong.
