Hm, I haven't heard but good stuff about the series/version 2 software of AEM, which is what this ems4 also uses.

The software is great, but like anything it takes time to learn. I used to mess with HP tuners, big stuff, and PowerFC before AEM and it was a bit of what he hell the first day, but once you get it going it's not bad.

As for the sensors when I do this I will use the dizzy and carry the setting from the other toyota files, but will use coil near dissy using a LQ coil pack, 3 bar GM map and IAT. Looking at the ECU pinout there is not a whole lot needed to be changed.

i purchased it.............i have all the sensors, ill be looking into the 4 coils idea soon, but no time soon. ive used hondata, messed around with the aem software back then trying to tune evos with this, but decided not to as my dyno time no longer free cause he sold the shop.

So NO ONE has installed this yet? or am i again having reading problems sober.(happens often)

Nobody on here has hooked it up to an alltrac I believe.

My friend has installed them on various cars at his shop though, and hasn't complained of any issues.

You should make a brief pictorial :D

Are you using the 96" loom? I am going to. I want to just run fresh wires and rid of the OEM harness, it's too bulky, crunchy, old, etc.

For now I'm doing it plug and play...i was about to say it's a 94 harness....st205... But no, i bought the adapter harness to go with other aem products. In the next 6 months I'll do the harness though. In going to use a crap clutch to break in the engine, then when i do the clutch I'll be changing fuel system, ignition system, install cams and turbo. Of which i will have all here within the next week, but need to pass smog first. And finish tweaking the chassi.


I'll do pictures, well the wife will.

Bump again. Is this capable of running the stock ignition system or does it require a conversion to EDIS like megasquirt?

Good to know. Still looking into this as an Ecu option. Looking forward to your results.
