Tuners that charge crazy money for tunes are going to hate this.

Im looking at you SHARK INJECTOR that hasn't lowered their price in 10 years!

Well to be fair you still have to have the knowledge of how to tune, which to do right isn't easy.

Im reading up on tuning right now, specifically this book and it gets pretty complicated.

Thanks Andre! Love your DIYs. Just a quick question- I'm seeing a lot of mention of a download folder, but I'm yet to find it. Could you please direct me to where I can find it?

No, we donīt share tunes from companys! Thats prohibited and probably illegal in most countries.

However, we may be able to give suggestions of what to do

Great job guys!

One question, would someone be interested in doing this for people that don't have the parts or knowledge to accomplish this? maybe for a low fee?

Those specific set of numbers is their proprietary software and they have the right to exercise exclusive rights over it.

tldr; its illegal to reverse engineer their tune and copy it, but we could always get close
