what are you going to tune it with???? how are you going to adjust air fuel ratios or timing??? If you cannot make changes, what are you going to tune???? Now dont get me wrong, going to just run on the dyno is fine. But you have no way to tune it.lgnd4u2nv said:Alright, I can understand that it might not be practical for legendoflegends to do it b/c it may cost $60/hr or whatever the rates are....but for me, I can get on a dyno for free. Are you saying that even if it is free, it is not worth it?
Pretty sure you can get a universal ems. its going to cost you though. They dont have it listed on their site, but if you call them you can get the information.Dave C ver2.0 said:Got news for you. The Legend ECU has no provision for adjustment and AEM never made the universal version EMS because of the high demand for the PnP units. S-AFC is your only route and that won't gain you much.
if we could do that, do you think we would be struggling to get into the 14s n/a, 13s nitrous. no way. Thats what is so great about the b and h series hondas is that you can use several different programs to tune it on stock ecu. (hondata, etc)lgnd4u2nv said:OK well that is where my knowledge is limited. I thought that there was some sort of computer you could plug into the ecu and you could reprogram it. I guess not. I'm still gonna take my car on the dyno just to get numbers b/c its a free offer.
11 WHP in my case.Dave C ver2.0 said:Got news for you. The Legend ECU has no provision for adjustment and AEM never made the universal version EMS because of the high demand for the PnP units. S-AFC is your only route and that won't gain you much.
People dyno tune cars because they car easily replicate variables that the road cannot - such as load, temperature, and back-to-back data logs. Tell your friend to junk that E-Manage and get a MAP ECU or an AEM - I'm dead serious... he won't be sorry - E-Manage is junk.Sprung17 said:the reason why people dyno tune it is so they can safely tune their car without being on the road endangering people.
My friend and I are planning to get his IS 300 dyno tuned after we street tune his car. Though we need to find a decent shop that knows how to deal with the Greddy E-manage and a turbo charged IS. I don't know how our car would do getting dyno tuned, while we are N/A and with out real good engine management.
