    Arrow Is there an intro guide to tuning?

    Hey guys, long time E90post member checking in. Just switched over to bimmerboost, glad to see most of the knowledgeable members already established here.

    With the release of ATR, I would really like to know what the hell I'm reading when I see these ATR threads asking about timing corrections, fuel trimmings, etc etc...I have no clue what any of that crap means. Is there some kind of intro to tuning thread that I can read? I'm the kind of person that takes 3rd and 4th gear logs and posts it on the forum for others to evaluate. I would really like to be able to evaluate them myself! I know I have a lot to learn, but I'm definitely willing. I'd love to be able to go into ATR and actually have a clue about what I'm looking at. Any help? Thanks so much in advance!

    I've been reading How to Tune and Modify Engine Management Systems by Jeff Hartman and it explains things pretty well
