      You shouldn't need too many maps.. te whole point is that you can tweak the files to better your setup. Maybe you should just look into the fash loader and data logging software ?

      So why don't you just get basic software for now and wait until you go BT ? your not going to gain all that much unless you can tune it yourself.. There is only so much a tune can be changed in house and actually perfrm well IN the car.

      wouldnt it be best to get your car dyno tuned instead of having generic maps?

      Eurodyne's generic maps make great power and leave little that need changing. It's all in the setup and the tuner

      because if i get the flash thats 450... then later ill have to spend 915.. or i can do 915 just once and get a tune set up now and later

    8. 10-22-2009 02:12 AM #43
      So I'd only have to pay 450 now then 565 when I bat


      And so much for not ruining the thread hehe but that was funny lol

      I'd personally buy maestro first thing as opposed to buying a chip tune first. If you go with the tapp 630 file, or something similar to it..you'll have to shell out another 500 to get the maestro.

      750+500 > 900 up front.

      its only worth it for them.it you had anything bigger,and wanted to make the most power and have the most tuning capabilities,you would go with a "real" stand alone system as they have far more options for more precise tuning.it wouldnt be a generic map as everyones car/setup is different

      The most powerful 1.8T in North America used this tuning software.. This offers all the benefits of standalone, without having to create the base map, and also offers the added bonus of being able to pass OBD2 readiness testing.. Not to mention an added safety margin by retaining the factory knock sensors..

      Maestro is great for any turbo...

      They send you a base tune (aka generic) so for example if you are running a GT 35r on a fully built 2.0L, they will send you their tune for that to start off with, but if you eventually want to upgrade cams, intake manifold, or run w/m injection you can do all the modifying of your tune with this program.

      Sure if you are running a full blown race setup standalone would probably be better, but think of this as better than a flash, and almost the same as a standalone, there is so much inside the programing that you can change. Hope that helps.

      Edit: For 99 percent of the cars that are running BT and plan on making changes in the future this will cover it all.

      The factory Bosch ME7 has adaptive mapping.. Standalone doesn't adapt to anything.. With standalone you must make changes yourself for air temp, density, etc.. So if you have an upgraded tune Via Maestro, the ecu will automaticly adapt for temp/ density changes, etc.. Just like stock, but applied to the new programming..

      I am going to chime in here. First off the Eurodyne Maestro system appears to have it all...

      But to me there are 5 distinct advantages of running a Eurodyne Maestro setup vs. standalone.

      1. Standalones do not come with a base tune / map. So the average joe tuner can modify from an incredible starting point.
      2. There is no need for any plug and play harness or splicing of wiring etc..
      3. Allows for most if not all of a standalones potential with a stock ECU and ahemm... Can be used in California's infamous smog checks. (I am not aware of any standalones that have passed Cali smog. Please correct me if I am wrong)
      4. Price. I don't believe that there are any standalones for under maestros price point.
      5. Eurodyne has made it incredibly easy is it to customize what you wish to eliminate or include with regards to eliminating CEL's due to Evap, cat and other related items.

      Not trying to argue with anyone just pointing out my opinions on why I would rather and do plan on going with Eurodyne's Maestro over a standalone.

      Eurodyne Maestro setup vs. standalone.

      You are forgetting one of the most important features of ME-7 vs Standalone....
      *** knock sensing ***

      I have yet to meet someone with an standalone system that has been able to effectively tune there engine for knock without blowing it up.Even if you went with a Motec and asked for the assisstance with knock tuning,they would say sure np but you would need to send them a replica motor to blow up

      For the ME5.8 guys and lower,they really only have 2 choices:
      1. ME-7 conversion
      2. Standalone

      but if you are a 2001+ MKIV or Audi B5/B6 then definitely a "chip tune" is the way to go.

      stock ecu uses a wideband o2 to constantly hit target afrs.

      with a standalone, you spend hours on the dyno making sure you're close. Any minor changes in your setup, weather, or gasoline will alter your tune. You'll have to frequently "optimize".

      Stock ecu has 12 degrees of timing correction, dual knock sensors that count knock per individual cylinder. I know some standalones can do this...but none of them as reliably and as easily as the stock ecu.

      When you take those two and add them together, you get an ecu that does a hell of a lot to protect the motor. I've never seen a wideband me7 car blowup due to a bad tune. I've seen plenty of standalones do that though....on an almost regular basis.

      Does your stand alone work with DBW? And you can pass readiness tests with it?

      you have to convert to DBC with isnt hard,034 sells the pedal conversion,all you have to do is supply ur own tb and throttle cable...and i stated that the only advantage of the maestro is that it retains the obdII.mine does not.i also said theres no inspection in my state,so i use it on the street also without any worries

      Last warning, folks.

      No. More. Arguing.

      This is a FAQ / DIY thread for Maestro.

      If you want to discuss other standalone systems, go elsewhere.

      Please quit de-railing this topic..

      L88m22vette put a lot of work into creating this informative thread for those interested in the Eurodyne Maestro Suite..

      One of the other users was nice enough to post a thread for you to talk about this in... Please use it..

      wait hold on. so we can't discuss why the maestro is great as a plug and play setup with standalone capabilities. so we can't compare in this thread?

      i believe i am saving up for this. i def think it's amazing, i love my uni and some of the things uni has done for me. but the price and ease of maestro is just more and more tempting.

      from a dealer aspect, is there a dealer option available for maestro, so i can have my personal separate from my dealer maestro?? if there such a thing.
