    hondata and uberdata are tuners mostly used for fuel ratio increases and decreases...(turbo apps) the difference between hondata and uberdata and crome are uberdata and crome are free and hondata is expensive...crome is the best I THINK others might differ.

    **shakes head in disbelief** :(

    Those are not "tuners". Tuners are the guys who put your car on the dyno and plug away at your engine manegment system trying to reach the correct "tune" for your car. Tuning you car consists of editing stock fuel maps and ignition curves to adjust for bolt ons, internals, or engine swaps. This is extremely important because detonation is the leading cause of engine failure in sport compacts. Detonation happens when you do not have enough fuel supply in the cylinder and it creates a lean condition. Engine management systems, or "EMS"s as they are comonly called, are by NO MEANS just for turbo apps. Any motor that has been modified from it's factory specs, be it a cold air intake, to a fully built engine can benefit from "tuning".

    As for the differences between the EMSs everyone has thier own opinion and you best bet is to :search:
