Default AEM EMS coming VERY SOON!

It seems to be all over their web forum, they have actually bought a car to do development on and are saying early 2003 or February for release.



They've been talking about releasing this thing for over a year now, and now it finally seems like it's going to happen...soon.

If all I hear is true, this thing should make the UTEC look like a toaster.

Uh huh, suuurree.

All kidding aside, I have a buddy that is trying to tune an AEM on a MKIV Supra. He took one look at my Link, called it 'child's play' and cranked out a very solid map in about an hour of road tuning.

As for the AEM, he has driven to the guys house several times as they can barely even get it to drive out of the garage.

Not that this is the norm, but comparing it to the UTEC or even Link is a bit unfair.

It's more up there with a TEC3 or Haltech with regards to adjustability and the myriad of settings you need to fine tune just to make the car run.

Is this the same AEM EMS that's been "COMING SOON" for over a year now?

They do actually have a car in development. He is an employee there and has posted on this board. Not sure when it will be released, but they generally spend ~1 month of R&D to make the wiring harness and setup the base maps. Should be done with R&D pretty soon, then it's a matter of building a wiring harness to release with the ECU.

I was considering the EMS on both of my cars until I learned about the recent trend in emissions testing. More states are adopting OBD2 port testing. For '97 and later cars, they put a scan tool on the OBD2 port and check to see if you have any trouble codes (in case your CEL is burned out).

Until stand-alone ECUs start incorporating functional OBD2 ports, this is going to be a big problem for some people. I live in Cleveland where they are considering the OBD2 test, and I will be moving to Phoenix where they are already doing it.

The best way to avoid getting into trouble is to find a tuning solution that keeps the factory ECU, while still avoiding (or preventing) those trouble codes.

Registering your car in a non-testing county (via P.O. box) works for some people, but the states know this is going on and may start cracking down on it (if they aren't already).

You could pull out the stand-alone and reinstall the factory ECU just for the emissions test, but this will usually involve other headaches like having to put factory injectors back in. This could be a major challenge, depending on how extensive the mods are.

At this point in time, there is no such thing as an OBD2 simulator which can fake out the testing people. Keep in mind that some states look at the RPM signal over the port.

Its a good thing. More products means more competition which means even more new products.

I like manufacturers competing for the best price too. I've heard good and bad about the EMS system, browse their boards occasionally to see what's new.

I tried accessing the links in the first post and I always get the error below :

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

For assistance, contact your network support team.

I can't even access AEMs home page but I can access their forums. Is anyone else having that problem! BTW, I am in Kuwait!
