  • Need some help with tuning SAFC NEO

    Not sure why the post I had for this got deleted, so I'll give it another go.

    I'm in the Knoxville, TN area and am looking for someone within 2-3 hours or so that has a WBO2 sensor and the knowledge to help me tune this thing.

        LOL...was thinking the same thing when I went to check it. Anyway, I don't own a WBO2 sensor and don't really have the $$$ right now to get one, so I was hoping the was someone on here that was reasonbly close that had one.

          just set it to -15, that should be decent for your car, but not to extreme

            I would go with -10% to stay on the safe side. Start it at around 3500 rpm on high throttle settings. Don't bother with the low throttle settings.

              -5 below 3500 would also be a good idea, when I was tuning in the summer I was at -4 at 2100 escelating up to -13 at 5800. However I did use a WBO2 sensor, probably one of the best investments I made. I agree about not messing with the low settings, your high thr should be at 75%-80%. In reality the BESTEST way is to go to a dyno, they have a WBO2 sensor they can shove up your tailpipe.

                I checked on doing that and they want $120 per hour and they said can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to tune a car. How long does it take really? I can probably afford an hour in a week or so, but two or three hours would get pretty expensive.

                    he ain't got a WBO2sensor. You could just find a long empty highway and just stay in 3rd gear accellerating and decelerating until you get it just right, lol.

                      if you can afford 120$ in a week or so to dyno , then why not just wait like 2-3 weeks instead and buy a WBO2.. in the long run it will be better because based on temps and such you might have to retune it. When you own the WBO2 you can tune it as many times as your heart desires..

                        I shouldn't take more then 1 hor to tune...especially with an AFC....if it takes them longer, then don't use them for they are incompetent.

                        I rented the dyno for 2 hours last year and did about 17-18 pulls...and that was with takeing a break to email a program from one comuter to the other, and then copy it to disk so we could load datalogging software to my computer.
