I'm running the pnp AEM EMS and I couldn't be happier!!! =) It makes tuning somewhat easy with the automapping. It is a complicated ecu but all the better for tunning. If my neighbor took a S--t and there's methanol in the air I'm sure I can account for it somehow. lol

so what's so bad about link? If it will pull time, use a map, eliminate the MAF, datalog, and read a wideband, what else do we need?

Real time tuning? Sucked datalogging, making changes, uploading changes, redatalogging, etc.

Overall, it's a great little ECU. I can tell you many of the pitfalls, and as someone noted the factory coils have to go. The Haltech is pretty easy to tune and runs well enough.

I used to be a Haltech dealer, many good installation write-ups exist on the net, some of which were inspired by my method of installing them in parallel with the stock ECU on the Miata.
