You can get "jumper" harnesses to go from the newer style RDX (EV1) injector harness, to the older OBD1 style, like ours. They are pretty cheap and widely available

Now i cant tell because the tuning wasn't fully done, but until i drive it again this wil deff be an up grade i will be looking into doing. Good work Matt.
You guys didn't drive it with the increased fuel pressure and fine tuning. It's an entirely different beast now

It certainly feels like more. I didn't do the dyno under the most optimal conditions and I didn't get to finish, so I do feel there is more to be made.

As you know I have tuned my Legend with the help from you to remove the EGR maps and slightly tune the ignition maps, but could this mod be done to my almost stock Legend? If so let me know and I'll be ready to pay to play.
I'd say I have done a more than adequate job tuning my car to the point where I could sell this tune to someone with identical or close mods within the next few weeks. I am logging the short term fuel trims and I have them tuned down to the +/- 3% range right now. The only issue I have to deal with right now is extremely rich conditions on cold start. I am going to be working on fixing this issue tommorow.

I know it will take time to get an ECU tune that works well with these injectors and is solid enough to offer to us 3.5 swap guys. I am excited as all hell about this. If you had a "donations" section on your website, I'd probably throw you a few bucks, as this reverse engineering, as well as forward engineering of unique Legend upgrades is worthy of supporting...as it benefits us ALL
Thanks!

I'm assuming the injectors, connector harnesses, seats, o-rings, RL FPR mod, and an ECU tune. Does the ECU tune seem like something you'd be able to do from your bench Matt or is it something that we'd have to individually follow up on after receiving them (assuming we already have a chipped ECU)?
Yes you're correct in what you need. The most important part is the ECU tune as the car won't run properly without it. I am working on the next generation of ECU tuning right now. My plans are to modify the ECU ROM with NSVRAM and write some code to update the ECU's maps and data in real time through the serial port (think of it as a emulator that is built into the ECU). Basically it's the same idea as a flashable ECU - but instead of having a separate emulator all datalogging and chip changes will be made through the onboard serial port. This will make it affordable(the ostrich emulator is $200 alone) and allow a fully integrated solution with only one cable coming from the ECU.

Taking this idea to the next logical step is remote tuning. You would get a modified ECU, install it in your car with a basemap close to your modifications. Then you would drive the car in a specific manner while you are logging different parameters. When you send me the logs I could analyze them and make the appropriate changes to the chip which I will then send you to upload to the ECU.
