    what's the best way to go for someone new to ecu tuning? currently have an obd-0 setup. is it worth trying to tune or should i swap to obd-1 and go from there? i hear good things about crome but also hear it's not newbie friendly.

    non-OBD setups are very easy to tune if you want to spare yourself the conversion.

    all ecu/motor setups are custom,a tune that wors great on my setup could be shit on yours,if you want the best go to a tuner and ave him tune it to your needs,
    obd1 is he best to tune,but you can also tune obd0 easily as well

    your tuning will be different even if your build were to mimic someone elses.

    i think i would like to stay obd0, been researching this since i posted. i found a few write ups but nothing promising, even been on pgmfi forums but nobody's too friendly there. any body got a good site or write i can go see that covers obd0 tuning?
