Engine tuning through carPC rather than piggyback or standalone?
Hey all, I've searched through the forum but couldnt seem to get a definite answer to my question..
My question is - is there a way/program/software/hardware to tune the AFR and MAP on a modded car through a carPC, rather than having to spend hundreds (if not thousands) on a piggyback or standalone system to tune your car?
(I was quoted $1500-3500 to dyno tune my car, which includes a standalone unit custom wired into my car)
I've done some engine mods to my car and also installed a carPC. The engine mods now require a tune to the car. It seems it should be easy enough to simply download a program onto my computer and use an OBD2 to USB connector and just start tuning my car from the carPC. This would eliminate the need to install another computer into my car, whether it be a piggyback or standalone unit (such as an Apexi, AEM, sfac, etc). It would be ideal to tune my car from a frontend program (I have Centrafuse).
From the reseach I've done, I cant tell if the Palmer OBD software is what I'm looking for? It has some of the things I'm looking for (engine load, dyno times, etc), but I'm still not sure if I can actually tune my car from there.
