i dont see why u goin to spend some large on a turbo but wont go all out on gettin the best management, hondata is good, but maybe wouldnt it more beneficial if u got a standalone like aem ems? no matter how good hondata is, a whole standalone is better, control over everythin..my .02, just wondering.

$465 vs $1,600 for something that is fully capable of tuning your motor.
Just my .00199 cents...

Do you have tuning experience with standalones? If not then dont make statements like that. Hondata has its quarks, yes. So does all other Standalones. ESP AEM.
However, IMO, Hondata works very well becuase its based of Honda ECU's. Basemaps are easier. Cost is alot better if you dont need the tuning software. It gives consumers a choice and packages. So they can spend $250-1000 depending on what they want. Even with all the add ons, its cheaper then AEM.

And Honestly if you wanna play the well if your spending the money n a decent turbo kit game. . . why not point out well why not build the motor too and upgrade all the crap from that kit to make some real power.
Its a bolton kit to a stock motor.

i'm with b16ahybrid here... in the miata i went with a pretty expensive ecu that is fully tuneable to tailor my performance and such to my needs.....

better than anything generic i could get...

when you add the cost of having to convert to obd1 for hondata, the prices start to get more comparable.

$100 for p-28 ecu
$150 obd-1 to obd-2 conversion harness.

I'm not trying to shoot down your idea, it's great for a fully built motor but hondata is more then capable in his situation and most built street cars. I have about $1,100 into mu engine management that includes
Hondata S100 w/boost
756cc injectors
and tuning.... thats still about $500 less then aem's set-up without tuning or injectors....there's whats called "practical" and there's whats called "overkill" for his stock motor i'm going to say that aem is overkill.

every system has their issues including Hondata, AEM, Haltech, MoTeC, etc. it mostly depends on the tuner as to how good your car is going to run. look around and do some homework before you make statements that you can't back up.

now do i need a obd1 p28, or p72?? and where can i get 1 for 100 bucks?
If ur gonna go hondata jus get the hondata p28. Its $175 and u can be sure it works and it will already be chipped......unlike buying some random p28 that might not work right.
