One point you missed about the chip. It is programmed to suit a STANDARD car and will advance timing and lean the mixture for more power. In combination with bigger exhausts etc, the mixture may become too lean(as exhaust mods/Tb/CAI etc when all installed can make a car run leaner than stock once the computer runs out of adjustment) and cause damage.
I'd go proper piggyback like an e-manage as it can do spark too(cost isn't much different either to a chip) and can be dyno tuned each time when you make more mods, also allowing REAL performance mods like cams etc(most people on these forums think spark leads and ground kits make a fast car :??
hi all i nee dto know how to remap my hyundai lantra j2 sedan i have a laptop to do it and the loom is inisde the car under the drivers side dash anyway what ecu remapping cables and programs can i use i nned to do it asap thanks need all the info ican so i can do my car a bit better on torqu and throttle get back thanks with all info i have done the exhaust system ,air pod, using a piggy back powerchip to the senor in the engine bay put in a strut brace on top and need to remap the cars ecu get back asap thanks any other ideas on how to get it faster be great thanks...
And on that post above about re-mapping your car with a laptop, good luck not killing your engine. If you don't have a rolling-road dyno and and air-fuel ratio meter, then you can't do it properly,regardless of the software and cable you have.
there is so many EMS out there, which is the best one suited for hyundais?
what i have ATM is basic mods IHE TB, and thinking of beta swap later down the track, (ultimate goal). along the way i might get things like a camshaft, port the intake, bigger injectors?... and maybe an oil cooler and that jazz. thinking, thinking.
basically what is the best EMS to get for my needs? what are people running on NA engines and are happy with? price wise, it seems cheaper to get a Emanage then a chip, even a safc!
