DirtyLude said:I have no idea whether the PMS or the Uni-Chip would work. I never got to take a good look at the PMS system. Someone had one on their OBDI Prelude locally, but they just got rid of it. I don't even know if it works on OBDII Preludes. You would have to make sure that the ECU does not trigger a MIL, which would be difficult playing with all it's inputs/outputs like that.
I haven't dyno tuned the E6K, yet. I will as soon as my engine is back together again. When we took the engine apart last time I found I was running it very rich. I'll spend an hour on the dyno and tune it with a wideband at part throttle properly. Then do some real tuning when it's properly broken in.
How so? Wouldn't you be able to tune the car to a decent mixture during part-throttle?DirtyLude said:My only issue is that if it modifies the injector duty cycle after the ECU, the ECU might not like what it's reading from the O2 sensor during part throttle.

Based on the PMS site, there are 4 different throttle settings (idle, low, med, WOT) with different fuel and timing maps.
My only issue is wondering how everything is done after the ECU: are the maps newly written from scratch, or are the made 'relative' to ECU settings. Thus, if the ECU sees a richer mixture, and starts leaning out, you'd have to richen it back up with the PMS. Either that or the NTPOG OBDII Bypass...
C'mon schwett, be the guinea pig already!
I beg to differ. From what I've gathered, the PMS (in it's "piggyback" mode) functions not like the piggybacks you mentioned (where the incoming signals to the ecu are altered), but rather alters the outgoing signals to the related engine components (i.e. distributor, injectors, VTEC solenoid, etc). Like the piggybacks, however, everything is done in relation to the normal ECU outputs: i.e. +2% here, -10% over there, etc.ILikeNakedGirls said:

p.s. sina i took your word and signed up, seems like a good choice and some informative people to go along with it

The "standalone" mode ignores whatever the ECU outputs and instead functions off of the EEPROM inside the PMS unit itself (which is updated via laptop). The ECU is still kept to power 'other' accesories.
It may be for an RX-7, but it deals with general PMS functions.

iranman said:The $800 price is just for the unit itself, which comes with a crazy old-skool controller that modifies fuel + ignition maps in increments of 2000rpm. :nono:
deffinatly worth the extra drugs you would have to sell or old women you would have to mug to get it from my standpoint!! :bigthumb:iranman said:The $300 software brings the increments down to about 160RPMS, plus gives you that standalone feature.
synical bastard :malken:iranman said:Most standalone's are especially noted for being like a walk in the park.
hey man im home sick, remember your not the one that has to live in ocala!!!!! besides i need laid pretty bad and i dont have any skanks down here i can call on but i still have some cards to redeem up north :bigthumb: besides i get to stop at nopi on the way back down and blow my money on useless **** for my car that will decrease its value and make everyone want to race me going 120 across a bridge in tampa that ive never driven before during heavy traffic :malken: i'll be back on new years eve but im heading to orlando to meet up with a purehonda buddy to get sauced.iranman said:WTF? You're going back to Pittsburg already?!?
