Default emu first fire need advice

This is my first post here guys, I am finishing my turbo setup today and will start tuning on the emu immediatly after. I was wondering if anyone could help me get a good start and lend me a good starter map. Also I bought a AEM uego wideband and cant seem to figure out how to wire this thing into the option port on the emu or if it is even possible.

Here's the setup
1999 1.8
305cc injectors
sr20 turbo
2.5 exhaust
small front mount ic
walbro 255 fuel pump
greddy map sensor
AEM wideband
93 octane fuel

Im shooting to start around 7 or 8 psi and safely work my way up.

To wire the AEM wideband you just follow the instructions in the emu manual and/or the wide band. It's been a while but I think there were just a few wires. Get the EMU wiring harness, (looks like a cable for a computer CD player), wire it to that and plug it in to the EMU option port. There is a thread here somewhere that tells you how, it even tells you how to make your own harness. I used it when I did mine over a year ago.

Yeah I stole a wire out of a junk computer last night and made a harness... I just dont know where to plug in what.

Their are three wires on the emu, which one is ground, positive, and data feed. Also do I run the serial wire or the analog wire into the emu? I only ask because I cant find it in the manuals anywhere.

If you mean the wires specifically, two of the wires from the AEM wideband go to two of the wires for the little harness you took from the computer. I forget which two, but the AEM instuction or the EMU should say, I can't remember which. Then there should be two others, one positive and ground IIRC. I'm telling you, do a search and it has close to idiot proof instructions. It was over a year ago when I set mine up so I can't remember alot of it off the top of my head, and I'm not inclined to find it for you.

Thanks for the help guys, got everything all sorted out and finished tuning it today. I must say this was one hell of a project and well worth it. Should be getting it up on the dyno monday or tuesday to see what kind of numbers its putting out now.
