It can't really be compared to a piggy back EMU. It is full standalone and has full control of everything in your car. The wiring is plug and play besides wiring up your wideband and running a map line. You have to tune it yourself or pay someone else to tune it for you. Street tuning is very easy though so that shouldn't be a big worry of yours. It is worth the time and money considering it is the most capable ECU for the price.

thank you, but is the stock injector cycles already in the MSPNP for the car so, and the tuning is fairly easy you say? can you do a rough tune with a narrow band ?

The tuning is very easy once you understand everything. You go for a 20 minute drive, datalog the entire run. Come home, let Megalogviewer analyze it and then you reload the new map. Do that a couple times to hit every cell possible and you end up with a very good streetable tune.
You can get a very rough tune with a narrowband. You cannot tune high load high rpm cells though so no WOT runs when using the narrowband. Widebands are cheap and make life much easier.

The AEM UEGO and LC1 are both excellent widebands. The AEM is easier to install, the LC1 is more for people who like adjustability. I run the AEM and its great.

You run a wire designated wire from the wideband controller to the MS and set the MS up for the wideband you're using.
