questions about nistune

ok guys, i meed some nistune info, first off; do i need a tuners licence? or can i use other software for tuning like live edit? like if i buy and install a board, can i tune it with other software or does it HAVE to be the nistune software. reason i ask is i cant afford nistune outright right now. but in theory i could park the car for a bit, sell my apexi neo and 86 300zx turbo ECM and buy a nistune board that i could install on my 88 maxima ECM. i think the maxima computer would be better as its the newer style with the 16 bit processor. help me out here guys, anyone have some helpful info on nistune? i actually just turned my boost back down to 10psi because at 14psi, my air flow meter and injectors were maxing out. i need full ECM control to meet the power potential of my turbo.

You need the license to be able to tune the car. I know a dealer in Denver Colorado he mainly does all type 1 boards. Mostly z31. If you send him your ecu and believe its around 360-380 with license installed and back to you.

ok, thats what i thought but wasnt sure. i need to know if i can use it on the 88 maxima ECU. if so, selling my 300zx turbo ECU and my apexi neo should almost get me enough scratch for it.

Looks like you need use a z31 ecu. It can be any z31 ecu just be sure to match the injector drivers to you impedance ecu. z31 had high and low impedance. I would recommend using a 87+ turbo ecu

i got in touch with Matt at nistune and he did clear some stuff for me. he recomended a late z31 board just as you did. but he also said that he was pretty confident that i could install it in the maxima ecu since its the same board, just set up for the zorconia 02 sensor and ficd type idle controls.
