RFP vs. MHD

So, first off I'd like to apologize for possibly asking a stupid question.

Currently I'm on MHD Stage 2+ 93oct. V10.0 however I've heard about RFP's OTS tunes & have been told they're pretty good. I'm looking to go to their Stage 3 93oct. tune. I was just wondering what's better, and how would I flash the RFP tune to my car? I noticed the tune file for it is a .bin as opposed to the MHD files being .mhd.
On top of this, I was wondering if I'd have to change any values within the tune itself considering I'm a 6MT car, and I have the 3.5bar TMAP sensor?

(P.S. I'm new to the whole tuning thing, & I can also post a mod list if necessary.)

If you want to push your stock turbos harder, run the stage 3. If you have all supporting mods these maps make more power. .mhd is a locked map .bin is editable. I would reccommend changing your 3.5 bar in the bin unless you get the n20 stage 3

How do I change the sensor in the .bin file to the 3.5 bar sensor to match my car? I just downloaded TunerPro & to be honest I have no idea what I’m doing 😂

Thank you so much in advance.

Change the map conversion (custom) breakpoints to 0.5 2.1 4.5
then the values to (and this is debated) 7.25 24.65 37.7

So I can’t just put the tune into MHD & use the MHD setting to select my 3.5 bar sensor?

Also, do you have an Instagram or something I could call you on while I change the values? Because I’m a little lost & my file doesn’t look the same as rfp’s in his video.

For reference this is what the file looks like for me, it’s just “Tables” and then everything else under it.

Fyi I wouldn't use RFP's tunes for anything except maybe learning and tinkering. At stage 3 I'd get one made for your car or take the fun route and learn how to do it yourself. Just my 0.02...

To be honest, I’m trying to use the RFP stage 3 tune so I can learn how to tune the car myself over time. I’m also trying to use it because I want the couple more boost PSI, so I can max out my stock turbos until I figure out if I want to go ST or Hybrid twins.

Definitely looking into getting a custom tune from probably cd919 in the future, though. But for now I’ll have to work with RFP’s. Thanks for the input.

Yeah, I think they're instagram or facebook. I'm not either of those things, haha!

If you'd like some entertainment, search them on this forum, I think there's a thread in the octogon about them.
