    okay, i want to tune my own car because tuners are expensive and as much as i change things i want to know how to do it without paying for retunes, i need some help on what to use, i was looking on moates and they have the honda tuning kit, is that a decent kit to start with? if i add on a wideband?

    also, what program would you recommend starting with to tune, thats fairly easy to use?

    any help is appreciated! thanks!

    Get the wideband first I would not tune without one. and for a first timer use Chrome.. Hey bud if you need help my friend has everything and can tune and chip your ecu for you he drives around playing in his car with a laptop sitting in the passenger seat... He is real smart when it comes to computers and electronics..

    i will talk to him he might not charge anything or if he does wouldn't be much.. He just really does it for fun. I tried telling him to start doing more chipping and make some money but he's not the type to charge people much at all...
