    yeah- but it still runs off vacuum. the electronics side is for ignition stuff- not really fuel.
    and the blue box sucks dude. just run the hack

    the blue box makes horseshit out of your gas mileage, runs way too rich. Go AFC hack, or as stated earlier, Uberdata if your looking for a cop out to standalone

    you can't say...

    however, you can say a/f ratios.

    non turbo - 13:1-13.5:1 ish
    blue box - 10-11:1
    ubderdata - whatever you tune it to
    fmu - depends... most likely lean in the middle and rich up top (13:1 - 11:1)
    emange is just an overpriced over glorifed vafc

    idealy- for a safe, yet powerful tune- you want to be around 12:1 all the way up once you start boosting on a turbo motor.
