Angry tuner help

Hey guys, i have an issue. I just installed 125hp 230cc hybrids from Industrial, a BD triple disc TC, Terminator T-500 HPOP, and had short block Totally rebuilt and bored.30 over. I am running DP tuner infinity which had 60tow, 80econ, 100perf, and 120race tunes and had jody build me an 80hybrid everyday tune, just till i can get to Ga to have him live tune for me. Installed the 80Hybrid, absolutely ZERO throttle response! Went back to the 80econ, and 100perf tunes, have throttle but dumping a ton of smoke, overfueling. does anybody have any ideas? should i consider different tuner? Stick oit out with Jody? My ride has been down for * weeks now, after blowing a head, and now im over $10,000 into this getting extremely aggrevated! Any advice will be appreciated!

I ran DP, and while I can't comment on live tuning I am MUCH happier with my tuning from PHP. I have their Hydra, and they are also located in GA

PHP, I will look into that. What do they offer as far as tuner/programmer? Custom tunes? I have a ton of mods, more than mentioned previously, so do they also build their tunes?

Yup they can tune for anything DP can. They offer a few chips, the Hydra can take tunes from most other tuners so if you wanted to try out gearhead, TW, etc you can, or just stick with PHP's tunes.

DP was always smokey an high EGTs and that pedal sensitivity was absolutely horrible. But I always had good customer service

I believe Jody talked to your mechanic this afternoon?

According to what he told Jody once you get the right injectors the tuning will be correct.

The tuning is set for 238cc hybrids you have are not what you bought. Live tuning will tell you how off on the cc,s they are.

Yes Diane you are correct. Jody did speak with my mechanic today. And forgive me for getting frustrated earlier, I was not trying to say anything bad towards Jody. This build has been going on since a week before thanksgiving, and its been one thing after another! I am ready for it to end, with the results I expected in the beginning of course! Its been 8 weeks, I suppose another weekend will not kill me, huh?

I'm sorry you are having to deal with the issues you are having. Hopefully it will all get ironed out soon.

Jody suggests starting with the injectors. He can't dial in your tuning over email without knowing what they are.

Red face THANKS

Yes Im sure it will also! Have been talking with Dan(mech) and we are going to do this the right way, however it turns out. Will be getting flow charts monday, along with jody's new tune and try it. If it works, GREAT! if not, then these injectors will come out and will be ordering from Jody. Thanks again

You or your mechanic don't know what injectors were put in?
