Tweecer?

Need some opinions on a Tweecer RT. I like the idea of tuning my car myself...sounds fun! BUT does this product have the capabilities of SCT Pro?

A lot of 5.0 guys use it, but it makes me think it is outdated!

Opinions??

I would say so seeing as the base tweecer is $300 and the RT is $450. With the Q/H you can get the tuner and the Binary Editor software for $349.

I've been using the Q/H for a few years and love it. I've worked with a guy with a tweecer and there are definitely some limitations with the tweecer that are not an issue with the Q/H. One being with the tweecer only being able to log 16 parameters at a time (unless that is just his mis-understanding), having to go through the steps to use BE to save your tunes then converting it over with CalEdit to write it (once again, that may be simply him not knowing how or not having a licensed copy of BE) I know if you are going to use the tweecer with CalEdit all of the parameters are not available via CalEdit that are with BE. I'm not sure if you can make "real time" live changes with the tweecer as you can with the Q/H either. Once again, I've used BE with my Q/H and have very limited time tuning with the tweecerRT and CalEdit so maybe someone that does it on a regular basis will step in, but IMO with my limited exposure, the Q/H and BE are FAR superior.

Here is a link to a very good article on the pros and cons of Tweecer vs. QH.
EECTuning.org • View topic - TwEECer RT vs Quarterhorse
I have a Tweecer RT and ended up buying the BinaryEditor & EEC Analyzer software, so add $155 to the cost of the Tweecer RT. Probably the biggest advantage is the MAF curve tool in EEC Analyzer. Much better than CalEdit. If you are going to buy the BinaryEditor & EEC Analyzer software, than for cost alone the QH is the winner.

With Binary Editor there is no need to use that horrible calcrap software. BE communicates directly with the Tweecer.

I love mine. Yes, you can make real time adjustments as well.

To be honest EEC Analyzer hasn't done a damn thing for me. I feel like it was a waste.
