Default OBD2 without getting a headache

Whats the cheapest way to go on an OBD2 LS? i already have an AFC, and was thinking about just buying a BTM to control timing, but is there another catch im missing? with an AFC hack would i need FPR or Walbro255? planning on piecing together a kit starting this week, depending on what i can find local for parts. would prefer to use the AFC hack rather than do OBDI conversion, new ECU, chip, etc. Just wondering whats the easiest way on an OBDII car. not looking for more than about 200whp and 8psi. planning on something about T3 Super 60 sized. dont want lots of power, and dont plan on upgrading any more until its time for a built motor, i just want a safe, reliable daily car with a little boost thatll last me for one more year til im done with my college education. I miss my DSM and its time my honda sees the "HOOKSH" treatment. tried not to be newbish or too long, sorry, and thanks for the help, still havent figured out these hondas, factory turbo cars are soooo much easier

Cheapest/Easiest is probably an FMU with stock injectors and dont run any more than 5-6 psi.

Emanage may be another 'easy' solution.

AFC is another solution but I never recommend it and its not cheap.

Sound like you already know that a chipped ECU is your best solution...and really its not all that expensive. It is time consuming and can be troublesome.

FMU is WAY outta the question, i wouldnt even consider that.

emanage is another thing i was looking at picking up locally for 400 with all software, but i wasnt sure if that was easy to use or not because im kind of newbish when it comes to tuning a car with nothing to really start with. is it pretty simple to get setup?

AFC is what i have now and i was thinking about getting some NEW 450 injectors and running 8psi on a medium sized turbo, like i said before, i want something safe that can be a daily car because thats what it is, not looking for lots of power right now, just miss the rush

chipped ECU sounds like an awesome way to go, just a conversion harness and new ECU, but i have no idea how to setup my own fuel and timing maps and do things like that, not sure how much more to it there is than that.

im looking for something i can throw in, rough tune, and drive safely, reliably, and that will be smooth like a stock turbocharged car (transition from vac to boost without any hiccups, etc). also what kind of dyno time should i be looking at to get this thing tuned well? 2-3hrs? 10hrs? ballpark #. can shops with dynos tune chipped ECUs like uberdata or turboedit? i know shows can dyno with AFCs really easily which is another reason i was considering it. any feedback would help, DSMs are alot diff than hondas, but i love the reliability

where you live at in fl? when you looking to get this done? i visit florida a few times a year and could come down with a chipped ecu and conversion harness for less than 200 bucks and you'd be ready to go. could also wide band tune for a little extra. when you plan on having a kit together?

trying as we speak to get a kit together, got a friend buying my project car (BMW) so i have cash to get things ready for the kit. looking to have it under pressure within a month or so, but ill be starting my part hunt within a week or two. looking at south florida perf mani and T3 Super 60. im an hour from tampa btw. $200 sounds awesome too let me know when you plan on being in the area, and if its not TOO far away, ill hold off a little bit and just get all the parts ready to go. id be willing to wait a little while til you are going to be around because i hear you are quite the master of tuning turbo hondas.

If you are looking at Emanage for $400 and possibly a bit more for tuning.

I would have Kevin hook you up or look into if there are any Neptune tuners near you now.
