hondata s300

with tax returns coming in i am going to be looking at upgrading my turbo system in my car and i am looking at s300 systems anyone with experience with this? also would buying one of these require a wideband or should it be plug and play from a dyno session with the tuner?

i dont like the aem one because its a digital number output and little hard to follow when things are moving real fast.

I love. the dyno jet wide band commander. it comes with a needle type guage and its much easier to read when things are going real fast.

both are able to datalog so its up to you.

can anyone give me a review of the hondata unit? how easy is it to tune with or does it have to be done by a retailer? what are some of the benifits of it over a chipped ecu? kinda new to the whole thing and i am still clueless after reviewing the hondata site.

Edit: Or can someone compare the hondata with the apex power fc. i know the fc is a full stand alone but has anyone ever used either????

AEM wideband (ugo) is the probably one of the best thing u could get w/ a tuner. especially with hondata s300. u cant see the numbers??/ lol u must got some eye problems w/ no disprespect. jjust by the that aem wideband and get a s300 you will love it. plus u get the s300, ur throttle response would b raw. i have s300 also. trust me, jsut get an aem wideband and dont spend no money on no dumb wideband.

-ps- datalogging w/ s300 so no problem tuning :-) have fun man and let me know the results

yes, i can. Hondata is like chipping ur ecu but still stand alone like aem ems. well, i dont know where ur located but I recommand u to go to certified aem tuner or hondata tuner. benefit over chrom and all other junk stuff.. u get alots of glitches. example, your a/f ratio will go out of place one min and come back or it would not idle right or just gonna mess up on you. now, hondata s300, u can datalog and have safe boost which allows u to boost but at certain lvl so u would not blow ur motor. but it does not have nitrous control like aem ems. now i really do not know about power fc... instead of wasting ur money on an apexi i rather spend money on a hondata because its guarnteed power and with no glitches. just pm me about using hondata s300.

its not that you cant see them but they are not as easy to read compared to a needle gauge. i dont personally have the aem one of my vr4 buddies does so maybe it moves alot faster in his car i dunno. ppl that are fond of the aem have seen mine and said that they liked it better. its just personal pref.

AEM has an analog AF gauge if you want it.

JTCdudeman over at Prelude Power says that he likes Hondata over the AEM standalone.. and he's pushing over 500whp on pump gas w/meth.

i have heard ( not on hondas but other cars) that the aem ems is really hard to tune and the smallest mistake and you will blow your motor. I know you can do that with all programs but for some reason i hear if you dont have a turner and a dyno handy that ems is not the right way to go. I dunno tho i have uber and willl be running hondata in the future. If your doing a mild turbo setup i dont see anything wrong with uber or chrome for the money you cant beat it. It has just as many features as most of your other programs.

I have hondata S300 and i dont have any problems. I recommand it +++

Just to say. If you never tuned a car. I recommand not doing it your self. Bring it to a certified Hondata tuner. Dont wanna have any blown motors.

Also. Depending on what year Prelude you got. You might need a different ECU. I know the obd2 cause use hondata but i dont know if it can use S300.

I should get your hands on a P28 or P72 ( I think its a P72 )

I am personally using a P28. SOHC Civic ECU

The problem with the EMS is although it has decent idle and WOT fuel/spark curves, it's kind of iffy in the mid range. Hondata is much better at filling in the middle throttle areas. I'm sure Neptune/Crome would be just as good. I personally stay away from Uber from what I've heard.
