I can start by getting rid of the AFM on my largely stock motor. When I go to 48mm T-bodies, disguting cams and headwork, carbon DTM intake and a 2.5 bottom, I can retune.
The key is that I won't be limited to JimC compatible components when building my engine.
Having done some price comparisons, the add-on system is not incredibly cheaper than a full system (for parts).
Tuning is an investment that would have to be made for either system.
MoTec was a possibility but the $6kUSD price tag to get it running is prohibitive.
The DTA system is priced at as little as £550 + at least another £150 in hard parts.
I dunno... it seems as though anyone wanting to build a no holds barred engine is moving to a fully programmable set-up.
I will start to build my web page and online diary.
