It's a lot easier to set up an 8x8 grid than an 8x32 or a 16x16 grid....
I think the haltech has something like 700+ "magic" numbers to put in.

They're not THIS random :) The numbers in the boxes correspond to the VE of
the motor...So if the motor has 87% volumetric efficiency at 100kPa and 3000
RPM, you put 87 in the box for 100kPa and 3000RPM

Yep, there is, you calculate the VE from the torque curve....
Also, you just have to run the car. There's a really cool feature in the
program. You go to the tuning screen, run the car, look at the O2 sensor
reading, and hit a key to enrich or enlean that VE box depending on what you
need. So just drive the car, and hit 2 keys to change the mixture until you
like it. Mine should be driving by tonight, fuel rail is finished, just have
to mount it now.
