tuning OBDII question

Hey just wondering if anyone can tell me what would be better for tuning on OBD II I know people will say go obdI etc but I can't do this, so between something like vafc or e-manage what would you guys recommend? would be a type s engine with euro r intake, jun headers, 3 inch exhaust system I have searched etc, people say e-manage is real good if u get someone who knows how to use it, but i'm just wondering if there would be much difference with going with the cheaper vafc since im just doing the usual bolt ons

Go OBD I.

Yeah, yeah, I read about you not wanting to do it. You say you "can't", but it sounds like a cop-out to me. What's holding you back?

Re: tuning OBDII question

Is your car actually an SH, or are you trying to swap it into the car?

In either case, ATTS = Short end of the stick as far as tuning goes.

Re: tuning OBDII question

Well since you have the sh the best thing to use to get as close to a obd1 is the emanage ultimate. It is the best way to tune a sh because you can do a lot more with it then a vfac. Some say you get almost as much as switching to obd1 with the ultimate.

Re: tuning OBDII question

Why can't you switch it over to obd1? It's way easier and better to tune with. If you have emissions tests you could just switch it back everytime you have to test.

To switch over u'll need
Obd2 to obd1 harness
•Virgin P73 or p28 ecu that the tuner will chip
•Hondata or chrome, etc.. Whatever your tuner likes is really the best option
*and whatever mods you plan on doing

When you take it to and get it tuned make sure u have fresh spark plugs, oil, and an O2 sensor if the tuner doesn't have one

It will cost more the first time you get it tuned and really shouldn't take more than an hour to retune it later on when you get more mods. Unless you go boost.. Which I wouldn't recommend doing if you get a real type s engine.. because of the high compression 11:1

From what I understand if you use a vafc the ecu will basically de-tune itself back to stock settings..vafc is just a "piggy back" system that just kinda taps in to you ecu

Don't really know much about the e-manage or how it works

Cheers, I think I will go with e-manage, reason I can't go to obd I is that you lose atts in that case and it just becomes a dead weight thanks for the help

Re: tuning OBDII question

E-Manage is a better unit, much more flexibility than a VAFC or AFC Neo.
