I understand hoping it would be cheaper, but that's less than I had to pay for my custom built solution. I wish this had been out then, it's much cleaner than mine.

Very well done.

Awesome! Its always great to see more tuning options, certainly ones that are plug and play.

For those that are considering a standalone this does look very polished.. and the best part for the consumer is that under the hood it is a really an AEM v2 which many tuners are familiar with.

Cool! I love the attention to detail your products. The harness and bracket look great.

This is a little more ambitious than my mod path but looks like a fabulous option for the hardcore.

It's only a few hundred more than a KF custom tune and you get a lot more control,data logging, WB and a host of other options......

Yup. Looks like you specify the year when you order it:

I have one question though.

Do I have to purchase the $300 Aux Harness if I want to use a Wideband O2 sensor ? Or there is a way to splice into the actual harness...

I have no use of the relay, speed density and boost controller as I already have a eboost2 controller.

Thank you.

Great question. The aux harness is not necessary if you are just connecting a wideband. The output from your wideband gauge (or controller) will simply splice to the 12pin Deutsch connector (Pin4) on the main harness side.

ECU looks great... but some of the extras seem a bit unreasonable. Advertised as a simple PNP solution yet "NOTE: For a trouble-free plug n' play connection, the Radium Auxiliary Harness should also be purchased"[$299 extra]. And 99$ for a switch?

The EMS kit comes standard with a "main" harness. The "auxiliary" harness is only used for ancillary options (speed density, wideband 02 hookup, boost control, and prewired fuse/relay output). However, ALL of these auxiliary components can be wired up manually by the user instead of purchasing the aux harness.

Are there base tunes for NA, SC and Turbo?

Sorry, I am not familar with tuning so this is a bit over my head, but interested in learning. I would imagine you would need something close so the engine doesnt go pop.

Or am I way off base with what this does?

Did you read the website? They will have base tunes for all 3

"Base maps are included for naturally aspirated, supercharged and turbocharged applications. However, not all cars are the same. These tunes need to be verified by a certified AEM tuner before racing. The fuel tuning can be mapped traditionally in 3D, alpha-N, boost compensated, etc. All Radium base calibrations are tuned using 3D alpha-N with 2D boost compensation. Maps can also be password protected by the tuner to prevent unauthorized usage and sharing."

For those who don't know,

we only need 70 more facebook fans until Radium give us a 10% rebate coupon for their products (excluding turbo kits).

It's worth the click if you plan to buy something from them

The Radium EMS PnP kit also includes a preconfigured Lotus-specific "workspace". These tabs simplify the tuning process by hiding unnecessary universal graphs, tables, and options that are either permanently setup or not applicable to the 2ZZ-GE. Furthermore, this allows commonly used features such as VVTi, boost control, knock control, traction control, etc. to be easily accessible and not buried in the software.
