Ill tell you this:
I have fairly extensive tuning experience with cars. Most handheld tuners iv run into dont posses enough setting adjustment for you to mess anything, to bad. There is such a liability risk that they really water those things down. Thats why internet ordered tunes are never all they could be also.
As long as you dont mess with the fuel settings(unless using a WIDEBAND o2 sensor, not the narrowband POS lightshows) you will be fine.
Adjusting timing is brutally simple, and more times than not is just time consuming. Timing adjustments are where you get the majority of your power gains. You can sneak out some power with the fuel settings, but more times than not fuel is used as your safety factor.
If you want some more power, start increasing your timing. You will know when you add to much when you hear something that sounds like marbles rolling around into each other in your motor. That is called ping. When you hear that sound, back the timing down .5*-1* and you will be set.
I encourage you all to read this book:
This is an excellent quick read on what exactly "tuning" in tales. Its really not as difficult as the dyno tuner makes it sound.
If you have some questions on anything, give me a holler. I will help to the best of my abilities.
