learn me about tunes, if you will..
I'm coming out of gassers, and have even programmed a few along the way.. the tunes for those is pretty much about trimming fuel delivery based off of throttle position and air fuel ratios, and advancing timing just as far as you can before experiencing pre detonation, and backing off until it doesn't anymore, and maybe a few things revolving around those two functions, such as altering expected temperatures so you can run cooler using a lower rated stat without tripping codes, and in effort to reduce likelihood of predet..
Anyway, this diesel is a different animal..
What functions are altered with the tunes to get more torque?
I'm asking, because I want to comprehensively choose a tune on my h&s that is the least likely to cause damage.. damage such as blasting a head gasket due to more injection or boost, or wet stacking due to too much delivery that isn't being used..
If I knew how these tunes worked their magic, I figure I can nail down the tune closest to what would benefit me most in terms of performance, longevity, and economy..
Thanks in advance, fellas..
