hey guys
a fella on trademe over here in nz is selling a capa flash tuner, but he seems to think it can only be used on an xr6t with manual trans. I thought these could be used on any ba/bf (up to 5 different engines).

my theory is he just has a map stored on it already that suits a xr6t manual.

any thoughts?

EDIT: any idea what gains i would get from a stock BA i6?

plan is to buy and use to get extra horse for now, then use again when i have my xr6t/typhoon engine installed

im pretty sure it can be used on many ba/bf engines.. not just the xr turbo.. its just the xr and FPV turbo's seem to get the most benifit from this flash tuner boxes..

flash tuners work on AU's also. I have one. Brendan Mock assures me I would pick up 10kw at the wheel on my stock AU with a $500 dyno tune at his hands. dont know what the gain on BA's would be like, prolly good with the dual cams. AUs A/Fs are s**t, made for quiet and economy. easy power gain. but better to do once mods like cam exhaust are in. if you can afford to get 2 custom tunes done (one now, no mods- then another done when mods in) then I say go for it mate. the capa tunes are s**t, its basically 3 tunes that come with a newy, valet (limits rpm to 3000 rpm) 95 ron and 98 ron. if its a second hand tuner and its been used on another car you will need to get it VIN unlocked as it locks to the car its used on. this costs around 80-90 aussie dollars. make sure your mate puts the factory setting back on his car before you take it or it cannot be unlocked. once it is unlocked this will also wipe the capa factory programs.

really? i didnt realise they had to reset the cars back to factory. I was under the impression they could be used for 5 different cars at once. i doubt he would reset his own car, probably got a tune and wants to reclaim some money back. maybe i'll wait and buy a new one.
