Tuning options

I used the search function but it seems somerecommendations are no longer in business (Mynes). What are the current remote tuning options other than RMW? It looks like ByteTronics is the only other player but remote tune requires an wideband O2 sensor install. Anyone have recommendations for local tuners in the SoCal area?

Mynes is more/less Bytetronics. For reliability your best bets are RMW or Bytetronics, both are similar if you are looking for a software tune.

If you are wanting/able to tackle the tuning yourself than your option is Bytetronics, I use this and have had solid success for my needs.

I have a RMW tune, all done in my garage. Yes it takes longer by the time you send the files back and forth and there may be some glitches but Jan at RMW stayed on the issue and I am very satisfied.

I suggest you disconnet the power steering pump fuse first. It is under the engine fuse box, have to remove the ecu in order to flip the fuse box over. Be sure to disconnect the negative battery terminal first. Its the 100 amp fuse, watch the you do not lose the small screws. By doing this the battery voltage will not drop while you are loading programs.
