    Yeah man, I do know what you mean. I registered here way back when I bought my copy of EFILive, but never really had much reason (nor time) to delve into it. But things have changed, so I now have a reason to try to work with this stuff.

    Seriously, I don't believe the target market for this product is the casual user. Based on pricing alone, I can't see anyone spending the money necessary just to do a tune for bolt ons on their own car. Unless, of course, you just did not have anyone competent nearby to go to for the tuning. Which becomes a dilema for a forum like this when the professional users doing this for a living, or part time income, likely aren't going to easily give up the tricks of their trade to the unwashed masses. So all the support will be coming from those few people who have taken the time to figure this stuff out and are graciously willing to share their knowledge freely. Which puts a huge burden on them trying to keep up with all of the questions us newbies will be tossing around. I imagine burnouts are common from being overwhelmed trying to keep up with the incessant repeated questions.

    Seriously, the tutorials need work to take the workload off of the people trying to help out here. Even some sort of FAQ section composed of the most common questions that all us newbies are bound to ask right off the bat. But yeah, that will take up someone's time as well. Maybe this is just as good as it is going to get. Self service with no guarantees expressed nor implied. Could be MUCH worse. Could be NO forum here.

    I've never seen any of those issues. Get all sorts of in depth help here from many people! Some are not even listed as EFI Live personel, maybe they are? But in depth help is amazing!

    Just the starting from scratch and reading all the stickys and tutorials that are outdated, broken links, dead pictures etc... was a lot of wasted time/learning which confused me even more.

    Really I only commented to let EFI Live know as feedback to help. I just read 11 pages in this thread and in the end have no idea if it works or not. It is a really old thread and I have done this before, several times.

    These guys know this stuff inside out and I think they forget what it's like to start at the begining, or beginning of which version... plus I started with a not so popular vehicle as far as tuning goes which made it worse.

    HTH!

    The easiest manner is to start by looking in these threads first:
    - A-New-Twist-on-CALC-VE-Table-Computing-the-Entire-VE-Table
    - CALC-VET-Summary-Notes
    - Summary-Notes

    Read and understand those first.

    And be aware that IFR slope/shape depends on FPR reference.

    FINALLY!!!! A starting point, I've been muddling around trying different things, cant find a CALC.SELBEN map by that name anywhere. maybe I'm just not understanding the terminology yet. I am a CNC tech by trade, and we run into this all the time, at times it feals like the guys that write the manuals "assume" that we the techs have at the very least a BA in software design and development. all I have is an associate!! lol

    Are you not seeing the CALC.SELBEN pid or a map of it...?

    The Calc.VET thread (post #1) shows how to create this map... can both of you see it...?
