Check out the additional things you will need at www.moates.net. they have great service and there are tutorials outlining your different options from basic to (reasonably priced) realtime tuning solutions.

You need a real time programmer (RTP) like Ostrich which plugs into a socketed ECU in place of the chip and stores the ROM on a chip emulator that’s powered by a little battery. Your laptop plugs into the chip emulator board via USB. That allows you to make changes to the tune without burning and physically swapping chips.

Then, when you’re done with the tune, you burn a chip, remove the RTP, and install the chip.

Or if you’re like me you just leave the RTP in for 8 years and never remove it which will probably work for 10 years until the battery dies.

If you want a cheap easy upgrade to that ecu purchase a low profile ZIF (zero insertion force) socket to push into where the chip goes, makes installation of chips or your emulator cable safer and easy as pie. Mine was 3 bucks and change.

It replaces the pinholes where the legs of the chip go with bladelike openings that clamp shut via a little lever to secure the pins.

Moates stuff ships worldwide, and has been the leader in low cost, diy tuning for like 20+ years. I bought my first moates products way back when i was your age to tune a motor swapped obd1 camaro and still use my original ostrich to this day.

But now I'm on my own, as shops here dont play with crome no mo. Never seen moates in a shop to purchase, its a small business. So I'd probably get whatever is neptune compatible so if after you street tune you want a pro to make the most of it, so they wont scoff at you for using crome

What’s wrong with Hondata? He said he doesn’t have thousands to spend on it, Hondata is like $645 with ecu for boost by gear, just plug up the laptop no burning chips, s300v3 has Bluetooth you can datalog on your phone, and datalogging inputs you just wire right in

Hondata is probably the most expensive option.

Yeah ive looked at hondata, even though its probably the easiest to do, i think im going to get a p06 chipped ecu and get moates ostrich 2.0, the ecu costs about 100bucks and its also in the europe which is good.

Youll want datalogging as well. Id suggest the Xtreme Hulog from moats as well. Im not sure if the kit comes with the header that solders into the board so Id double check that if you decide to order.
