Don't waste your money on that. Chip your ECU then get a burner and use Uberdata. Best way to go.

I hear yeah on the fuel management stuff. My first setup was a comparison from Fred Flintstone to George Jetson; FMU and check valves! I wanna evolve from that stone age setup but when it comes to figuring out fuel maps and ignition ---- I'm like Forest Gump. :P

Have you ever used e-manage? Its a good and easy system to work with. Its not hard to hook up and it shows good results. It is a pigy back system so don't expect the world out of it. I tuned both Uberdata and E-manage and I belive that e-manage is easyer and better system for the money you pay.

All of you that are using uberdata and sware by it, go ahead and say what you want, I am only giving my oppinion. 98ctr

For what you pay? Are you crazy? Uberdata is free. cheap burner and a chipped ecu and you are done. E-manage is big bucks not to mention the tuning crap to go along with it. $320 plus the programmer is not cheap. Does it give full throttle launch? full throttle shift? idle adjust? rev limit? VTEC crossover adjustment? speed limiter remove? Datalogging? It may be easy to use but the cons out weigh the pros. You can do all these things with a stock Honda ECU some simple soldering and a chip burner. I'm not saying throw out an E-manage if you have one but if you are starting from nothing my money is on Uberdata/Techedit

P.S. see you over at CHB, lol

I have to agree with the above...I have installed and tuned a few Emanage units, I've worked especially close with the one on my friend's '99 turbo maxima...it is no doubt a good unit and has many decent options, it idled the 370cc injectors like stock with no tuning. user interface is really easy(very AFC'ish) I even considered it on my Intgera, but when you think about there are so many decent FREE DIY rom editors out for Hondas, why even waste your money on something else that doesn't have half the mentiioned features as Uber or TE. plus IMHO, Emanage on these cars is no more than a MSD BTM and VAFC hack combo with a little more resolution and DL. Like was said if you already have Emagae I say stick with it, but if not the world of Honda ROM editing offers sooooooooooooo many more options at little to half the cost. just my $.02, since I'm sorta on both sides

my vote is for uberdata...I stopped following it after I switched back to OBD0, but its come a long way and there are guys making nice power with it...program is 100% free, most you'll spend is $100+/- for a burner and some chips...they have a forum you should go check it out

Whatever you guys say Uberdata it is not free. Somehow you end up paing for it. Burner can cost you $100-$200 chips are about $7ea for the 29c256 reprogramable ones, socket for the ecu its $7 ea, socket soldering and jumper/ resisorts runs about $60. Uberdata only gives you 4x10 rows for tuning under boost where is the most important part of tunning. Im not saying that e-manage is better than Uberdata or vice versa, but the guy wanted to know what to do, and I was only giving him a good source to use because its most likely that he does not know how to do the Uberdata by himself. E-manage wold get him going safelly untill he can invest in a good standalone if he is serious about tunning under boost. 98ctr
