    Engine management is tuning the ECU on the car or putting different MAPS on the car. When you add certain modifications like a turboback exhaust you can tune the ECU and gain up to 50-60 hp, this is known as stage 2.

    You can buy a tactrix cable and download programs for free and use your laptop to tune.(romraider)

    Cobb accessport, Ecutek, theres a few different ways. But thats what its all about.
