What do you want to know? At the most basic, an EMU will control ignition timing and fuel injection. You want the spark plugs to fire at just the right time to gain the most horsepower. You also want to spray just the right amount of fuel to have it burn as efficiently as possible.

You can use the term "resolution" when describing what an EMU is capable of. A low end EMU such as the one included with the Procharger can only adjust fuel ever 1000rpm. So in that entire RPM band you have the same amount of fuel being sprayed. However a high end EMU such as the UTEC can adjust this at 250rpm increments. Simply put, the finer the resolution, the better the tuner can use the system to achieve "the perfect tune".

Adjustments are also made based on load. An example would be if you are cruising at 2500rpm and then smash the throttle. You are still at 2500rpm for a second but you just increased the load dramatically, in which case more fuel will be needed.
How knowledgable do I have to be on tuning to tune with UTEC myself.

Just ordered the UTEC but I don't know much about it. I was using the Split Second Tune that came with the Vortech kit for almost 2 years. I'll let you know how it works out in a couple weeks. I'm also adding a return fuel system, 500cc injectors and Labree Res test pipes. Should make for some desent gains
I have the split second/vortec. I took the car last year with the software to a tuner, he panicked, would'nt ever change on the dyno. Think we're getting about all we can get with s/c safely.

Would anyone happen to have manuals for the UTEC, for the HKS Fcon (both VPRo and iS) and for the Navigator? The websites don't have a whole ton of info and I am particularly interested in the display on the Navigator. The HKS website has a great hi res picture but I can't figure out what some of the abbreviations on the display mean. If you could post them up in pdf or something that would be awesome.

thanks!

O ya, I forgot I was supposed to post something up...here goes...
I have UTEC with an APS TT set up. I also have a map selector switch and Turbo XS Tuner Pro for the most precise tuning possible. It has worked flawlessly for me. One thing I made sure of was to get the best install and tunes possible. Some people had "problems" with the UTEC, but it was actually a grounding issue...just need to get it put in right. I sold the Unichip and went with UTEC because it is a more powerful system, but also becuase I liked being able to switch maps. I'm using exhaust dumps for the best exhaust flow possible, so it's nice to be able to switch to the correct map. It also allows for easy switching between high and low boost, as well as allowing for a reduced timing map for treating the engine nice, or a bad batch of gas. Overall, an excellent system, I honestly have no complaints. It can be used for NA applications, and is powerful enough for BIG powerrrrrrrr. Good stuff, I highly recomend it : )

Like what? I'm curious as to what I can add to the dash that would give me more info as to how my car is running.
The HKS Navigator plugs into the F-Con and gives everything from boost to air intake temp.

I think you should be fine since you are still running NA.

But I'm thinking the same thing, switching over to UTEC.
