No, high miles doesn't mean your engine will blow up. And that kit is not forced induction so you will be good
Not to derail this thread but do you have any experience with hp tuners? Hp standard is far cheaper than full uprev but I’m afraid hp doesn’t have the same options as uprev in terms of turning codes off, and editing stuff.I have personally tuned trucks with as much as 350K miles with no issues and in fact the owners commented they wished they did it sooner.
As long as your engine is mechanically sound and up to date on regular maintenance a proper uprev tune will only make it run better.
you misunderstand me, I plan to buy a full tuner and do it my self. I've wrenched and boosted my own cars in the past. I've also read over some of the uprev documentation, and everything looks straight forward.This has been discussed pretty much ad nauseum here on TitanTalk. HP tuners will cost you a minimum of $500 for a tune, and that's entirely dependent on the dyno tuber you visit and what he charges for his time. UpRev is $550, but with Seymore that runs you a significant level of tuning support and more than just a single tune at the end of the process. Math doesn't lie.
I just want to be able to turn codes on and off and play around in the settings of my ECU. Anything beyond small fuel changes, the truck would be going to a professional. Simiply asking the question of which software package is better for Nissan. Pretty sure its uprev, but info on HP for Nissan is very limited. The only benefit for HP it appears is the Pro package, and being able to add analog inputs.If you are one of the very few guys who can legitimately tune your truck properly, to run at the right fuel mixture and make good power, more power to you. HP will be cheaper for you. Most guys who say that (including the first guy to tune my brother's Chevy Colorado with HP) are wrong, but man, maybe you're the exception.
You're not the first to come her sporting that message, though. Good luck with your tuning..
eh, the idea of losing oem functionality isn’t appealing and piggy backs are for people who don’t have better options.if you are bored, you can do a megasquirt, also.
yea, megasquirt would kill oem functionality. Thats why I want to stick with factory ECU and just play with the parameters. Do you know the difference between HP and Uprev in terms of software and what things are accessible within the factory ECU?megasquirt isn't a piggy back. its a full replacement engine and fuel management system. you throw your stock ecu out and this replaces it
but its a ton of work if you want to do the right way of making the harness and if the stock sensors don't read, you have to swap over to the ones that do work with ms so sometimes you are tapping and modding to fit those sensors to the throttle body and different areas. and if you are not good on a computer, give it up. when i built one for my bmw, it ran great on the a simulator but when it came to actually running the car, no-go. but, this was back in the days of ms2 had just come out and no one in south texas had it on an e30. its probably easier now
Jesus that thread is cancer. Bunch of old ladies arguing about cost and not the actual merits of one tuning package over the other. From what little is discussed in that thread, it would appear HP offers the same access to features as uprev, just less documentation specifically related to Titans.Uprev hands down. HP tuners came out with a big splash announcing Nissan support then pretty much just disappeared and stopped development.
Here's a little light reading for you:
