    ive searched and ive read about 100 threads about ecus and chips and its still a little fuzzy for me..... could someone explain what is needed in order to have a ecu tuned on a dyno? what i gather from reading all these threads is that you can have a ecu chipped, and that it will be a set program, or that you can have it socketed in order to be programmed by something like hondata or chrome. is this correct? i wish someone knowledgeable on the subject could give a full explanation on the proper way to get the most performance and reliability with a modified computer. basically the ins and outs of tuning options. i think this would help more than just me. thanks

    ok you need to have the computer chipped and socketed..
    you can send it to xenocron and they will do everythuing(even basemap) then you can go get tuned

    hondata is a software used to tune the ecu. So is Crome, neptune, uberdata etc....

    The socket is just a place to stick a chip or emulator. It removes the chip with your ecu's program and leaves you a place to stick a custom chip.

    Crome is similar to Hondata, except that it's available for free, so that's a good way to go in my opinion. Or, you can pay a little bit and get a premium version of it...
