Re: Programing - DIY

I like the looks of the Sniper Package...I think the use of wizards in the GUI to help you along is perfect to get you stated.I wouldn't know where to start editing the acutal tables.

Mike is this the package you got? how much?

Re: Programing - DIY

No wizards in my package, just tables, functions and scalars. I can change and edit data tables in graph format though.

Mike, I take it the version of software you have is only available from DI.

Re: Programing - DIY

I purchased it through DI and they are working with Sniper to put this complete package together which will include everything needed to burn a chip, not just flash the PCM. The drop down GUI interface with limited access is not in this package.

Re: Programing - DIY

Hey I caught your thread and I am all for DIY tuning of all parameters. You need full accees to that PCM nothing else will suffice. I also have been looking at the full blown sniper tuning package myself but my main area of interest isn't always going to be diesel or Fords for that matter so I can't justify the cost. The important thing that we need to get across to the vendors is that there are many talented smart individuals who would love to really molest there trucks tuning and if they would just make the price a little more affordable they would sell the hell out of it. I have been so dissapointed in the offerings of aftermarket gas efi ecms that I have been developing my own systems from scratch with every bell and whistle you can imagine for pennies on the dollar BUT this is something I have extensive knowledge in also. Once diesels become so popular that evryone is hacking them you will see these full programming options become available to us DIY's. I have already seen ways to utilize sniper entry level kit for hacking programs.
