Hand Held Tuners

Curious to personal preferences here in the board.

Diablo Sport Intune and the SCT X4 appear to be the current dominant tuners available for retail. Sent an inquiry to Superchips earlier inquiring about availability for the '04 Marauder. My Mustang came with a Superchips hand held the original owner purchased shortly after taking delivery of the car in 2005 - nothing on their website for F-L-M products currently.

Starting some lite 'tinkering' at the moment with the basics.

Absolute best money and time you can spend/save is advice above. He can adjust the stiffness of shifts (8 is great!), so the results are amazing.

SCT is pretty archaic when it comes to tuning the EEC-Vs. The most advanced and most supported hardware and software for the 03/04 Marauders specifically is the Moates Quarterhorse with TunerPro RT.

You can do realtime tuning meaning you write tunes and make changes WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING. If your ballsy enough you can even make tune changes while at WOT if you have someone with you to not crash the car lol.

And the datalogging is 1000x faster and easier with ALOT more info than SCT can ever dream of.

And with the QH you have full binary access to the tune which means you can change output pin configurations and what not if you know how to write patches.

Also, with sct it takes about a min and 45 sec to write a tune. With the QH it takes about 8 seconds to write a full tune. Only 1/8th of a second to write a maf transfer change or spark adjustment etc whilw the engines running.

The custom tuning software is free TunerPro RT and the RZASA xdf file for the 03/04 Marauder.

If your looking to write your own tune then the Moates tuner might be what you want. If you want an awesome tune that will cover 99.9% of your driving needs that is ready to load then go with Marty at Mo's. Marty is able to make adjustments to his tune to fit your specific tastes, shift firmness etc.

Most "canned" tunes will be for a Mustang 4.6L DOHC.

How much do you charge for this setup?

Sounds like a great setup, how tough is it to be data logging ?

its a free download all u have to buy is a moates quarterhorse

datalogging is as easy as literally clicking a button, much easier with tunerpro than any other option out there

That's what I suspected. I ordered the K&N CAI last night from Advance Auto Parts online and ordered the SCT X4 7015 tonight from Summit Racing online.

Checking around tomorrow for someone local who will do the J-mod modification. Once I receive the SCT device I will phone Mo's Speed Shop and go from there.

My Mustang currently is using a 93 octane 'canned tune' from Superchips. My only real complaint is the electronic throttle is too sensitive when shifting the trans manually.

Alot of good info on this board - everyone keep up the good works!
