At one time everybody was helping each other, then word got out about efilive, and everybody and there brother wanted it. Many of them couldn't tune even with help, but they could take others tune and resell them as there own with no guilty conscience because they were free. The tipping point for me was I spent 3 days helping somebody with a truck, finally found the tuning mistake after I started over and went through his tune line by line(found he had switched a unit when making his script), fixxed it, and then seen him post bragging on a forum about how much trouble this truck was and how he was so proud he finally found and fixxed the problem himself. No more after that. I don't mind helping others, but I'm not here to make them money without even a mention of helping them. Just rubbed me the wrong way.

...and there is nothing wrong with feeling that way. There are snakes in every form of motorsport. We've found our share over the years.

Ferm, I personally want to thank you for all the wonderful info you've given over the years. You are an excellent person and a credit to this hobby/sport. I hope you realize that. Get well soon.

What kind of mileage were you seeing? Is it stock transmission safe?

Thanks for posting cals, same thing happens with our Turbo Dodges, you build a tune then someone else takes credit,

It's been awhile since I run this tune, but I believe I was seeing hand calculated mixxed driving numbers around 18 mpg. I honestly don't remember if this one would hurt a stock alli or not. I'm on my phone, so I can't download it to take a peak to refresh my memory.
