We'll name it BOOM Ferrari Tuning

On a serious note. It would be great if those who did understand this and tuned their own cars could post some more about it so other members can get more familiar with the process. I'm not saying Joe Plumber should go tune his own $50K car. But it's never hurt anyone to have more knowledge
Most tuning "programs" are pretty basic.

Load VS RPM usually

Tables for fuel
Tables for ignition
Tables for Cam Profiling/advance if applicable

What sets them apart is the amount of control they have and any other features they might offer.

Lean Protections
Knock Protection
Idle
Rev Limits
Gear Compensation (ignition/fuel)
IAT Compensations
ECT compensations
Oil Compensations

ETC ETC

Not much to "teach" for this platform until a company releases software and tune for the end user.
