I dont have any experience in this. BUt I am willing to help all that I can. I am going to upgrade my springs/shocks as well. But in a later time.

If you dont mind my company on learning, then I will be there.

I just got a Greddy EMU and PNP harness. Do I need a pro to install it, will I need to tune it right away?

I will be at the Dyno meet to get it all worked out

You shouldnt need a pro to install it if you have basic wiring skills. Or save your wiring harness and just buy a plug and play harness from boomslang. Heres a link: Boomslang Fabrication - The Performance Wiring Specialists. I dont think You'll need a tune immediately. I'm not sure how e-manage operates but I don't think that it would change any outputs until you adjust them. Don't take my word for it though.

Wait. Didnt you already buy a PNP harness off another member? Why would you need a pro to install it? Its PNP. Just plug it in and secure the EMU under the dash.

I meant PNP, not PLP. I eduted it

I didnt know if I needed to tune it right away.
I am gonna do it myself, if the EMU doesnt need to be tuned after the install.

Thanks

I dont remember everything that the Greddy units control but for the Apex'i fuel controller you could just install and go. All it does is take an input signal from stock sensors, adjust them with the tuned in settings, and send out the corrected signal to the stock ECU. So basically no tune means no adjustment, which means stock settings. I would assume that the E-manage works the same, atleast for its fuel control functions.

the hardest part installing the Emanage. is getting the plugs through the firewall. that was a bitch when i did it. and you dont have to tune it you can just leave everything at zero. or theres some base maps rolling around on isf.

The EMU is the same as the other units, if you install it and leave it alone all the adjustments are zeroed out and you're just running at stock settings. If you get a PNP harness its as simple as matching plugs, otherwise its cutting and splicing in the wiring harness, which if you take your time and are careful shouldn't be hard, but does mess up your stock harness.

Have a question? Try the my.is FAQ or, if you can't find an answer there, search before posting your question (hopefully in the correct forum).

Eh... its a bit harder than you think. Splicing and soldering isnt hard... as long as you have enough wire to work with. The wiring harnes is kinda crammed in there and the wires get a little stiff and greasy from age. There wasnt alot of wire to work with and I kept getting hand cramps trying to hold the wires, solder, and soldering iron. Plus either the iron sucked or the wires werent very good at conducting heat because some just didnt want to melt the solder. The electrical tape around the wires from the factory was pretty dirty and not holding together well anymore. When I remove the fuel contoller I'm just going to resolder the harnes back together and get a boomslang extension harness to cut into instead of the actual OEM harness. I wish I had known about those in the firstplace. That would have saved alot of time and frustration.

I think we need a DIY install day. I'll be happy to set things up but I don't have any room to host it.

Anyone have a nice flat driveway & garage, and space for a couple more cars to park??

you know I'd drive up for that, that's where I did my suspension. Unless you want a bunch of IS'ers on your couch and floor I don't think anyone else will.
