    Are you running an obd0 or obd1 ecu? If you're using obd0, I'd go with turboedit....if obd1, I'd use uberdata


    Everyone else on here will tell you to run Crome, but you can't datalog with the free version of Crome, and you've gotta pay for Crome Pro. You can datalog for free with Uberdata.

    Uberdata > Crome.

    that is the downfall of crome free...no datalogging. but the interface is still KICK ASS. Uberdata is just....cluttered.

    If you are going to tune it your self, then TurboEdit can work. You'll need to chip your ecu, and purchase the a rom burner to get your program into the ecu. A laptop will come in real handy. This will still entail a lot of going back and forth between the burner and the ecu. If you want to tune live, you'll need to add an ostrich to the setup. If you don't want to mess with burning chips, and buying a burner, and an ostrich, then go for the ZDyne. They are down to under $600 now, and can tune live, no burning roms, no back and forth.

    If you are going to have "wang" tune it, then you'll need to use whatever he tunes with. You'll need to ask him, he may be picky at $150 an hour...

    I really liked the ZDyne system on my b16a 1991 Civic Si. It was easy to use, I never had a problem, no rechipping, it was all built in. It's a bit expensive on the front end, but SUPER easy.

    I made 325hp/225tq out of my li'l 2300 pound car, and NEVER had an ECU/Engine problem with just upgraded rods and pistons. It was a BLAST, and daily driver reliable once I got all the little bugs worked out.

    AMS Tuning FTW! Got my socketed P28 from him.

    Wangs Auto is sketchy anyways. He owns a lot of...nail salons, and...Chinese restaurants....
