Question for Tuners regarding tuning methodology....
So, while snooping around and asking questions, I've been made aware that some, if not all tuners use a STOCK truck (with stock airbox and exhaust) to develop tunes. If most, if not all customers are going to delete entire exhaust system from turbo back and apply a cold air intake and 4-5inch exhaust, wouldn't it behoove Tuners to develop tunes based on aftermarket air box and turbo back, DPF/CAT delete exhaust??
I am aware of gasoline engine ecu tuning taking a variety of variables such as engine temp, ambient temp, manifold pressure, air/fuel mixture, rpm's and engine load to name a few. The more variables taken into consideration and tested for optimum performance, the better the tune is.
Why would Diesel tuners NOT develop tunes with aftermarket products installed as is the final intention of us customers???
enquiring minds like to know
