    V tech tune vs sea doo center tune

    Seadoo center ecu worked well for me in the past
    and i was very happy with the tunes.
    People are talking about the v tech flash and
    which is the way to go and what are the differences
    in the 8400 tunes and the 8650 tunes from both suppliers???????????

    I do not know the details about what separates the two brands' base maps, but the great part about V Tech is that you buy the tuning license once and can change the tune unlimited times, plus have access to their tune library. That way you can pick something tailored exactly towards your setup at any given time...

    I had a Les ECU on my conversion and it Was way lean for the set up he tuned it for. I added fuel pressure to my set up and it was awesome.

    Too lean depends on who ya ask and what kinda fuel..... what some are comfortable with others will run away from fast. I know im a kawasaki dum dum but if i told you my timing numbers and what my boost was at, along with 13-13.5 afr youd call me a liar at best.....

    That's because lean doesn't hurt parts but the Internet will disagree

    Well I understand your guys take on it, but the 20+ Doo's I've had the pleasure to have since I have a wonderfull Wife. I can tell you a Seadoo Doesn't like running in the 13's//// Yes, I have too done it, but will say I was and you are a fool to do it. Closed coarse is much different aswell the ski i unhooked so much that they can be run a bit leaner as they are on and off the throttle all the time. Timming around 34-36 degrees/ I like 12.-12.5afr/// Most like 11.9 on a well boosted Seadoo

    How safe do you want your tune? Or how many hrs do you want the engine to last? Vtech is conservative in the stage 1/stage 2 base maps with intention for the motor to last 100's of hours.

    I can't speak on behalf of the other side, but I guess you can try them.

    vtech is not close to a stand alone but it does give the user much better information on the tune
    the timing should be different for the fuel your using

    Yes, Vtech gives you the option to change your tune if you plan on constantly changing your setup.

    I have and currently run a Les Cooke/SeaDoo Centre reflash and love it. I called Les and told him what I wanted to do and run and he relfashed it for me.

    I have used Vtech on a customers ski and had bad luck with it. I wont use them again. First impressions are EVERYTHING....

    Yes, some will say that my SeaDoo Centre runs a little lean but it is set up for CC vs drags so I am ok with that. As soon as I add a FPR I will be ok... Les was easy to deal with and got it done quickly.
