There were quite a few things I didnt have access to, at least not on the tuner itself. I dont know what software they use, I assume when they set the stuff up they do it on the computer/laptop, then transfer everything to the tuner. My tuners only came with basic software. Youd have to probably get your hands on the programs they use, which would probably cost you waaaaaay more than buying a several brand new tuners.
Ill tinker with mine today and let you know what I come up with. But at this point im really leaning towards the regular joe not being able to right their own tunes.
What experience do you have writing pcm data? Making a custom tune is not as simple as tweaking settings here and there and seeing what happens. You stand to cause some serious damage to your engine, or just as bad ruin your pcm. A great level of knowledge is needed, hence the high cost of tuners, tunes, dyno tunes etc, etc.
Another thought....call SCT, or a shop with a dyno and find out what software they use to create their tunes.
