    First timer..Wow

    I have a an 84 gmc stepside with a TPI with the 165 ecm..Piggyback chip running the 89 programming..Just hooked up to TunerproRT for the first time...Wow seems a bit overwhelming at this point..
    Want to start out by trying to understand what the heck I'm looking at..Hope to get my first log this weekend...Then the million question should start..

    It looks like my data logging session might be on hold for this weekend..Expecting snow. Time is so very difficult to come bye..I think that it will be the biggest obsticle in trying to learn how to do this stuff..

    With the LS swaps being all the rage..Is it a waste of time to learn how to tune with an ancient computer like the 165?? Or would what I learn help down the road with newer technology??

    Thanks for your input.

    You'll actually learn more starting with the older system and it all transfers well to newer! Cost of newer software will slow you down a bit though...

    Time is an issue, just find a little time each day. Or you'll end up in a Tuners Annonomous class...
