Oh geez. Ol' Willy. That boy was pretty off the wall. But yes, fun days.
Busy reprogramming factory ecu's now days. I don't have time to build stuff like Tune Monster ecu's or Monster Power Tuners. (Stuff that does more than fuel). Besides, I can do it all inside the factory ecu now days. Its cheaper and easier. And no tech support needed. Tech Support was / is a big time killer.
About the only thing I will build now is Fuel Monster tuner. In limited time or numbers of course. But I have the Ace in works. I just won't release it until I have a great manual finished and a bunch of "how to" videos. As I don't want to tech support anything. Also thinking about a Titan tuner. These are just back burner stuff I work on. No real desire to push them.
As for what they are.
Fuel Monster tuner is what its always been. A 16x16 zone tuner / remapping device with optional autotuning capabilities.
Titan tuner is a tuner with 8-16 preloaded maps. No laptop. Just switch mappings on fly. Its like having 8 or 16 different dobeck tuners all set at default. And you can just switch through them for the one you want/need.
The Ace is a tuner with all tuners built in. Fuel monster, Titan tuner, 10x dobecks, PC3 / PC5, bazazz, turbo tuner. Everything. It can be used like any of them. Even import / use theirs maps. Can be used with or without a laptop. It runs 4 tuners in parallel so you can even switch between them at different rpms, different throttle positions etc. Or switch complete tuners with boost levels. Everything anybody ever wanted in one device. But... don't want to release until I have the time to do the online "knowledge centre" so I don't have to support it live at all. Might be this year, might be next.
Flashing or reprogramming is my core business now. Most people want easy stuff. Or even just run slip on exhaust. And i can do all that right inside factory ecu.
I have a quite different approach. Every ecu reprogram is custom to that user and bike. Not blanket files like every other flash out there. (as they are just copies or extensions of canam race flashes) Its popular to fix those flashes. Like bad starting or idling because they shut off idle valves. Or actually setting fuel or ignition timing. Or fix that you can still connect with BUDS and do not loose DESS key security. Or fix cooling fan settings. (most either don't adjust or are set way to low so fan runs way too much)
I think that sums it up. And hopefully answers your Ace questions.
