Yeah, I don't really need 15 tunes anyway. Most would probably never get used.

What is the options later on of loadin custom tunes to the Phoenix? Maybe like Jody's or TW?

see I am some what a noob when It comes to diesel. How ever when it comes to gas, different story. I have been a tech for about 10 years. right now my talon has a super 16 G TD05 turbo next will be adding a HKS Water to air FMIC and will be looking into the same thing for my F250. But the one thing I am buying very soon is my tuner/logger. Then play time will be on...i think my wife will be mad (laughing my *** off)

Very nice! I'm good when it comes to working on my 1984 f150 with the 300 i6 but his 87 supra with the 7mge is stupid! Lol it's jumped timing so bad it's suck air in the exhaust and backfiring through the intake! I have never seen an engine run 100% backwards. I want to do a 2jtz swap on it....

Better yet scrap it. If I'm gonna dream lets go with a 2002 mk4 supra running 700hp! Lol

well the 2Jz swap would be killer and its not as expensive as you think. I have seen something like that before, then the entire valve train gurnaded bending ever valve in the head. of course this was after the dude did the timing wrong ....i laughed so hard i thought i was gonna piss my self.
But hey, if you need any help or what ever, let me know and I will help the best I can via the internet if possible

I might've taking you upon that! I bought a 7mge with 153,000 miles on it that was disassembled that has a rebuilt head on it. I'm planning on putting that together and using it as mine has 257,000 on it.

just do a rebuild. would come out much better if you done that. You can build an engine tighter, but a lose used enginr can go any time...ive seen it a lot
