THis whole adaptations thing. If the DME is making 'adaptations' to the maps that we adjust, then how the hell do we know if the map we end up with is dialed? When everyone says wait for the car to adapt, how much are you talking about? Is it fuel map contingencies? Ign map changes that are held in a different map that it references in addition to the ign map we tune and load?
With all the years of tuning standalone EMS's, I just don't see how this happens.
