Jerry did give me the tune with higher octane, 104/107, octane. Made a noticeable difference. Had I known ahead of time I would not have spent $282. for the TORCO booster.
Jerry did say our professional relationship was finished. I guess it took him some time. If anyone remembers last December when I installed the first tune for the DCAI and Jerry's 65mm pulley I did not have boost for a month. That cost me some cash. I did not tell Jerry our relationship was over. I spent around $200. for an IC pump/installation. Along with the assistance of many members of several MB forums.
Point here is that nobody at Eurocharged suggested ANYTHING! It turned out that the TPS read 58% at WOT. This is something I found with a datalog. Contacted Jerry and he said to disconnect the battery cables as that was the procedure to reset the TPS. Well it worked, one month later. I would think Eurocharged would have asked for a datalog long before I did the test myself and saved a lot of sleepless nights and untold phone calls.
Yes, Eurocharged should be more specific on what is a "CUSTOM" tune. I am not even sure they mention a custom tune. I know a shop that would rent me dyno time and Eurocharged could do the tune from their end based upon data that would be sent to them. That would be a custom tune in my mind and worth the $180. or is it $360.? A true custom tune would likely be one of the best result wise "MODS" we could get. I'd be one of the first in line for a tune done that way instead of a canned tune that comes with the pulley package.
After Jerry did the 100 octane tune he told me about the fuel he runs in his twin turbo Lambirgini.
One last thing that has to do with datalogs. Asking tuners about why they do certain things is a NO-NO! I asked why the total timing at light cruise rarely went above 30*. I know the SLK 3.2 motors are different but every other car I have had run in the past would approach 40* at light throttle. Asking that question was like upsetting a hornets nest! I was not questioning anyone's capabilities as far as their tune went, I just wanted to know for knowledge's sake.
I am just guessing here and going by recollection( I don't remember, I don't recall.........meant for jbanks15) when I had no boost I was told there were only 3 "tunes" and that each had been used "1000 times". Common mods, common tunes. No problem with that. However if some parameter falls out of one of the most common tunes does that constitute a custom tune? Here I go, opening myself to trouble by asking a question.
All in the quest for knowledge, in no way in competition. In fact I would recommend Jerry but I would make clear what parameter makes a tune become "CUSTOM"?
The statement in my previous post is accurate. I got the tune and Jerry told me to NEVER contact him again. Mark
