engine tuning question

im rebuilding my motor, ive gotten new pistons and rods and new crower cams, im getting the skunk2 intake mani and larger throttle body. I am getting it tuned so you all know lol but the question is- i have a apexi neo installed already and was wondering if i would be able to use that as a piggyback and still tune it or will i still need to convert to obd1??? thanks fellow luders

Re: engine tuning question

I'm far, far from being an expert on tuning.. but from what I've gathered about it you will still need to switch to OBD1 other wise OBD2 will continuously keep trying to change the fuel map. Don't quote me on that though.

Re: engine tuning question

I know you should switch to obd1, but what about just chipping the obd2 ecu with a reprogrammable chip like a Hondata s200. Would it just be easier to switch to obd1?

Re: engine tuning question

Need to switch to OBD1 to run Hondata, that is the point. OBD2 you are stuck with piggybacks, although there are still more powerful options than the Neo, such as an eMange ultimate or AEM FIC.

Re: engine tuning question

Thanks, I couldn't remember if it needed to be obd1 or not to chip. I think that's actually why I bought the z6, cause it is obd1, easier to chip.

Re: engine tuning question

Yup, OBD1. Thats why everybody switched over from OBD2; cause, its much more easier to tune.
