    okay so i have my pr3 obd0 socketed ecu, turbo edit,; and a place to get a tune...i also have a laptop that i plan on taking with me to the dyno or to the track..

    i think that the only other thing that i need would be the http://www.moates.net ostrich and a WB sensor
    [​IMG]

    what else do i need to be able to datalog and make changes "on the fly"?

    i have been reading on all the forums and i have a basic understanding....but i'm a noob there(HMT,Pgfi.org) so i ask here



    any info or intel is greatly appriciated

    you need an emulator to make on the fly changes. it basically plugs into the EEPROM socket and the other end into the EEPROM writer. then you just download the program from computer to the ECU via the emulator.. it stores the program in it as long as it is connected and powered on, then you need to write the program to a EEPROM/EPROM and put it in the car once you have the final tune.

    okay...
    i though the ostrich did all of that???

    i bought my ecu pre chipped on the web...so do i need to wire/solder in anything else to the board??? in order to use the EMS(TE,ostrich)

    i dont want to burn chips...i just want somethingto store a bin and tune onboard via laptop realtime with TE
