I had both the AEM Wideband and the Boost Sensor Wired into the EMU and also had digital displays. Again they are not needed but with data logging on the EMU, it's nice to have all the info in one log file.
I'm interested in seeing how they deal with the stock A/F sensor. If it's not spoofed correctly the stock ECU will fight the EMU for control.

I think I had done everything but may have looked something over?
I was wondering can the tune be done with my Greddy Emanage ultimate, aem uego a/f ratio gauge and I have a analog boost pressure gauge installed.
Is it all good to tune without a boost sensor installed? I figure it's alright without since it's pushing avg. 8-9 psi max.
LMK what you guys think and if you've done the tune without a boost sensor in place.
And if anyone has some good tune settings to start with I'd appreciate if you could send em' to me!
And would there be a big difference tuning at 91 octane vs 93 octane?
BTW the setup I'm running.
05' FWD Vibe 5 speed
TRD SC - stock pulley
160 degree thermostat
DeatschWerks Fuel Injector- 370cc
NGK BKR7EIX Iridium Spark Plugs gap .030''
short ram intake
Do you mean a MAP sensor? (a manifold absolute pressure sensor)
If the Greddy doesn't get a signal showing the boost and amount of boost, it will be flying blind. The adjustments will happen too late or not at all, and the fuel will go lean. You should have a MAP sensor and it should be plugged directly into the Greddy. I believe a 2bar MAP will suffice. If it is like my Blue, there is a plug for the MAP sensor.
So tuning was done last week and it's been driving fine.
No the wideband was not hooked up to the EMU during tuning, we unplugged the stock O2 sensor, and he hooked up a boost line to the system he was using so he could have it for display/reference.
But a couple of things, he said no matter what he tried to do at WOT at below 3000 rpm it's actually too rich so he advised below 3000 only to do up to half-throttle and then I could floor it. He recommended to also get water/meth kit hooked up to help with my too rich problem.
Any remedies or other things I should add to help solve this problem so I can do WOT whenever I want?
And here's the final dyno btw
