Unhappy SuperCharged DME tune *HELP* needed!

lost on the DME tuning stuff.
i have gotten my hands on a supercharger system
which is an old charger system.
technik kit ASA tm12 blower.
i have all the hardware,
exept the injectors and the tuning software.
as far as my understanding goes, the tuner of this kit its no longer in the states *samir*
the kit its intercooled and 8psi pulley.

any ideas who may do the tune, i have heard that AA,VF,and ESS dont tune another kit unless its one of their own!
any help will be greatly apreciated.

each setup requires custom tune to work. This is why other tuners won't have a tune for it.

You're going to have to find a custom tune for that... Which can range from 400-800 depending on who is doing it.

I wouldn't mind paying relatively $800 on a tune!
I have messaged AA, ess, and VF
None have responded to my emails or pm's.
I have contacted EcuProgram up in Calgary Canada!
Symray has told me they do bench tuning and he can
Do the tuning maps on the ms43 with
30lb injectos 8psi of boost! He quoated me at $650+shipping
But i would feel more comfortable having a US proven
Software to be reliable, like AA on my top list
Or ESS and giac(VF) i belive no kit is alike and thats a fact!
However i dont see what why would one tune not work on another
Aplication, yes i understand blower flow matters, and AfR coild be alittle
Different from one tune to a diferent hardware, and power lost!
That its not a issue for me!
I addapt jeje

Each Kit use different Injectors and different bypass valve. So it will affect the tuning. You can still get a samir tune if I remember correctly. Just have to get the right contacts.

BTW: I have some 33lbs and 37lbs injectors For Sale...

By bypass valve, you mean (blow off valve)
Wow, am really newbie to this SC stuff!
I get the injectors been an issue, and i would get the right injectora for the tune!
But the Bypass valve, how that can affect a tune o_O ??

actually i donīt know how the warranty regulations are in the US, but i guess its more up to warranty instead of differencies in the hardware. any company with a dyno and a software guy should be able to tune a car.

but if the tune it and weeks later one injector goes bad and therefore the engine, the company would get into trouble here in germany. thats why they, even here, donīt like to tune other stuff.

Thats exactly what i thought, boost preasure its boost! And the dme sees that, ofcourse the better boost flows the more power!
I hope i can get a company to tune my DME, am willing to buy the tune along with injectors from the *quote* company! Aswell as am willing to sign a waiver stating such company its not responsable for any damages due to the engine!
