Search in your area for a tuner closer to you. Ferrolli might be the closest to you.

Download the basic instructions guide from Dicktator website and study that first. Once you have a better understanding how to do the basic setup and trim of fueling, it will be easier to guide you to reduce fueling.

it's not a simple case of sending you a map. You have to get it tuned for that setup and your altitude so contact Kosie swanepoel or ferroli to get it tuned.

@ golf dicktator, don’t go driving it like you stole it until you have it tuned properly as panic suggested.

Prices for tuning vary from tuner to tuner and also area where they are. Shop around like Donovan said. If none other available in your area, that is what you have to pay.
