 I want to state up front that we here at ECMTuning do not particularly care for the AEM WB kits.  Of all the kits we support for datalogging purposes, customers seem to have FAR more problems getting the AEM WB kit to log correctly than any other kit out there. ​ The problem is that there are several different "​versions"​ of the AEM WB kit and very few seem to produce output voltages that actually match the documented figures. I want to state up front that we here at ECMTuning do not particularly care for the AEM WB kits.  Of all the kits we support for datalogging purposes, customers seem to have FAR more problems getting the AEM WB kit to log correctly than any other kit out there. ​ The problem is that there are several different "​versions"​ of the AEM WB kit and very few seem to produce output voltages that actually match the documented figures.
  
-That's why you'll find several different "goofy looking"​ AEM WB options listed inside ECMLink for datalogging and that's why we have a page here dedicated specifically to the AEM WB.  It's just such a nightmare to support this kit that we have even given passing thought to dropping support for it entirely. ​ The update rate is horrible (or at least it used to be...I believe their latest kit listed below is actually a good bit better about this), the driver circuitry is weak and the output voltages rarely match what they are supposed to.  So it's just a really undesirable WB kit for a number of reasons.+This has nothing to do with "​compatibility"​ with ECMLink. ​ It has to do with AEM WB kits producing weak and hard to define signal mappings.  ​That's why you'll find several different "goofy looking"​ AEM WB options listed inside ECMLink for datalogging and that's why we have a page here dedicated specifically to the AEM WB.

 But, we don't really plan on dropping support for it because as bad as it is for datalogging,​ it seems to be the WB kit of choice for a large number of people. ​ Just keep in mind if you buy one of these WB kits and plan to datalog it with your DSM ECU, you may find that you have to spend a good bit of time getting it working right. But, we don't really plan on dropping support for it because as bad as it is for datalogging,​ it seems to be the WB kit of choice for a large number of people. ​ Just keep in mind if you buy one of these WB kits and plan to datalog it with your DSM ECU, you may find that you have to spend a good bit of time getting it working right.
