    The first step of my turbo build is in the mail. Wide band next week, then its time to build a motor. Between then and now i am gonna tune my B16 and get some cams and valve springs. The only question i have is about the interchange-ability of maps between neptune and crome pro. Both programs offer the same options and capabilities. However, i had my friend send me the map he uses on his turbo teg and i couldn't get it to convert. He uses crome pro and the file for the map is a BIN file, neptune is an ncl file. Anyway to convert? Probably won't need to because neptune comes with quite a few stock maps but i figure it might be use full.

    you cannot convert or use neptune maps on crome or vice versa.

    and i was under the impression that only neptune dealers could get the tuning software.

    you're not going to be using his map on different software, and you certianly aren't going to be using neptune at all. only the tuner will.

    I have neptune rtp in my ecu right now. Your right it won't run crome maps. But i am using neptune, i ran it on my laptop today. Downloaded a p30 basemap and adjusted the ignition timing a little with the help of my friend who has crome. Also set up my launch controll and Cel shift light. Thats all i can do now untill my wideband shows up probably next week. I am confused as to why you think i can use neptune only a tuner can?

    Before, IIRC, only their dealers/tuners had access to the software. I don't know about now. If you have a burner or emulator; you can still use Crome. Crome and Neptune are just computer programs that do pretty much the same thing; translate codes amd add codes so you can change variables, etc(make the ECU do what you want it to do).

    edit: just looked at the "RTP" and it looks like it's just added hardware to the stock ECU and software to control it.

    Also, I should add, the RTP hardware could also just be something like a emulator that is installed inside the ECU. Crome supports RTP also with the use of Ostrich emulator or any other emulator.

    A good friend of mine has an EG with an h22 swap turbo'd. He's running neptune and has the RTP *real time programmer* Its great, so much you can do. If you have any questions about it, lemme know if i cant figure it out ill give him a call. I was gonna run hondata s300, but since ive played with neptune *and is basically the same price* im going with neptune.

    Yeah, i'm in love with it and its still being developed so it can only get better. I talked to a new friend of mine who's a tuner and he thinks the hardware should be able to support crome software as well as neptune.
