Hi all GenCoupe users and drivers,

I've been working on this project for the last 2 years or so. Project has been an on and off kinda thing. But this year I am making lots of progress and plan to release it. Don't know what the starting price will be since I haven't gotten the hardware quoted. I design my very own USB to CAN interface along with plastic housing. Hope to see this to the market soon.

Looking for Feedback Please

See images/features below

Features

-USB connection for speed and compatibility
-Gen-Tune Windows based software for parameter & table editing, calibration uploading and datalogging
-Real-time updating of ECU parameters & tables(Still in progress)
-Built in calibrations for common engine combinations Base Tunes
-Built in datalogging to a laptop
-Adjustment for different sized injectors, with overall fuel trim
-TPS based table lookup for DBW full throttle
-PWM output for boost control
-Immobilizer on or off
-Fuel trim for starting, throttle tip in and individual cylinder trim
-Rev limiter adjustments
-Knock sensor control
-Adjustable idle speed AC on or off
-Adjustable boost cut with hot and cold settings
-Closed loop control
-Torque Limits
-Air temperature compensation
-Water temperature compensation
-A/C shutoff conditions
-Turbo Turbine Speed Adjustment
-Immobilizer enable/disable
-Speed Limiter
-Fuel Table
-Ignition Table
-Catalyst Overheat Protection Table
-Rom Details Quick View
-Enable and Disable various sensors

Why no 3.8 GDI?
Never looked into the 3.8. I wish I had the time to pull down the ecu. The Gen-Tune Program is indeed a universal tuning tool which can be used on any platform. I would just have to implement CAN drivers to communicate to different ECU's, Seed and Key access, checksum, X and Y axis information and most important tables require for tuning or remove limitations.

Well, you would have a huge market if you decided to do it. ;)

Interesting in why you designed your own USB to CAN instead of sourcing one that already exists. Then again, I'd probably do the same thing :)

The main reasons for designing my own USB to CAN is because I know how much the material might cost and just have to pay for manufacturing. Which I have close ties with a company that can manufacturer it for next to nothing here in the USA. Also to have full control over the firmware and quality control. And most important to avoid customers having to buy pricey hardware like the Tactrix/Mongoose etc.. cables

Is this for both 2.0T's (BK1 & BK2) or? Do you have any videos for proof that you can tune with this software? Such as setting launch control at 3k then showing you make the change in the tune to set it at 5k?

The GUI looks good but I'm not sure what type of feedback you're looking for.

Can't believe my eyes, looks great, definately in

Couple of questions:
1) Do you have units conversion support? Will i be able to switch from F to C, from lb-ft to nm?
2) Do you plan to develop 3d map view?
3) Any extra features? Like dual maps, wideband support for 1st gen coupes, boost scramble, etc?
4) Does Gen-Tune have datalogger built in?
5) Both generation and trans support?
6) How do you plan to distribute?

This is amazing

Right now this is only for BK1 manual. I am adding support for BK2. I need to get my hands on a ecu and ECU dump. I would have to assume the map locations will be different since its a different software version. I may be wrong but I think the ecu's are the same though.

I will be posting vids of a demo car on the dyno showing results.

SUBD! !!!!! I have a 3.8 GDI and everyone here that has one with a tuning itch will be looking at this!

Thanks

Hi

1. Yes I would have a unit conversion menu which you can select what units you would like for each table or data logged sensor. I have all of the formula's needed to convert the units properly.

2. The 3D map view will be available soon. I really didn't see the benefit of having it now since i am still in development stages.

3. Right now I am only concerned on extracting the main tables and properly viewing them with the right scaling formula. To add extra features I would have to do some dissembly to the 2mb ecu dump and try to recompile it. If I can recompile it then features can be added. I do not know if added features are already built into the ecu. If that's the case I would have to located the enable/disable bit and find the table that corresponds to it. This could take a very long time.

4. Gen-Tune does have a built in datalogger with unit conversions. I am working on overlaying the sensor data on the tables to create a tracer that would show the current pass which would enhance the tuning experience.

5. Right now its just BK1 manual. BK2 support will be there soon. I have some catching up to do. But I would like to spend some time on the 3.8 since the market is indeed starving. As for the automatics I think the market is slim and I would not invest the time.

6. All orders will be shipped from USA, FL. I will release about 10 to 20 beta cables to tuners/shop/general public to get and idea of what Gen-Tune is lacking and to debug any issues before release. Product will be released in the up coming months.

Thanks for your interest and the great questions!

I was browsing your website and it looks like this is just software you'd purchase along with the CanBus reflasher. Would any tuner be able to use this software?

edit: i'd happily be a tester for this as well :wink:

Definately a game changer here.

As to MN_Coupes question, and correct me if I'm wrong, but any tuner that has a general understanding of tuning will be able to adjust maps. The software looks pretty similar to the Tuner Pro software that a ton of people use on other platforms.

Well that's good news. MAPerformance is local to me so I wanted to go to them for tuning.

Yeah this is little different that the other platforms. You should really focus on making it EASY for people to change things with simple buttons, drop downs and tutorials. That's were your claim to fame will come in IMO.

Not to discount any of the work you've done though. For sure it's an accomplishment.

Looks pretty similar to Tuner Pro. Obviously with just having screenshots, it is hard to see how it functions and if it functions the same. And i dont think anyone has used tuner pro for the GC yet, and Im not sure if any of the ECU files on the GC have been checked for compatibility with Tuner Pro. You are right as this is different than anything else out there for the GC, but as far as tuning software goes, similar ones have been made for other platforms.

As to making it simple, if you spend a little time researching, you can figure out what you are doing. If you make it too easy, then people will think they can tune without doing their due diligence and then blame the software/hardware when their car fails.

Sorry, I meant easy as in making simple changes like remove speed limiter, change fan on temp, etc. Not "tuning" as in fuel maps, timing, etc.

I see. Most of those are toggles and get a value of 00 or 01 in all the cars I've tuned. Im sure it would be similar and would be clearly defined somewhere in the program.
