Just looked on the Power Commander site and the PCIII had now been discontinued in favour of the PC-V

Nice so they finaly come to their senses, i'm just have that mounted for 4 years now (PCV with autotune) :imrgreen: :imrgreen:.
It's probably the same one but with a different cable connector instead of the one for 1200bandit that i use ;) .

Nothing to not much Notty - yours may run a bit smoother but really PC's are mainly where different exhausts are fitted or engines tuned in some way from standard where ther suelling needs amendment.

So unless you are going to fit an aftermarket exhaust like an Akra or fit Yoshi cams - in standard trim, there is no real (if any benefit).

The biggest advantage that I found in the past with a PC3 on one of my previous 14's was that it immediately did away with the snatchy throttle at low revs (even though the TPS was within spec) once I had it Dyno'd it did away with it all together and ran as smooth as silk and pulled like a proper train!

The guy that did the custom map as well as having his own tuning business (Motrac Race Engineering) did a lot of work for some of the leading race teams and wasn't happy until he could ride around his car park in first gear and there be no on or off throttle judder at all, myself and another member (Tigger/Pete) from the old ORG went together on the same day to Ellesmere Port

Cheers

Hi! Anyone used the Autotune modul? And what work was involved in tuning prossess? Dyno or road? And how was the result?

For anyone looking for a second hand PC-V you can broaden your horizons a bit when searching for one. The same unit is also fitted to Suzuki Bandit 1250 water cooled models :onya:
I bought one for mine stupid cheap and then never got around to fitting it :rolleyes:

I have a autotune module. During normal road conditions it is impossible to get to 100% throttle opening long enough to cover the full range.

On a private road, long stretch, no speed limit and various engine loads... i think you can get to about 70% of all the increments you want.

We have a member on here who set up his 14 with just the autotune only to discover it made about 90? Bhp ...only because the upper throttle range wasnt tuned yet.

In my moderate experience you still need a rolling road setup as a decent base. Fine tuning via autotune is ok... baseline not
