What is the difference between a PCII and PCIII? Which one is best and are both able to be hooked to a laptop?

I've seen both for sale and was wondering why there is two types of PCs





thanks!

are you sure they're not both PCIII? cause there is a III and a IIIR model, both programable through laptop

I forgot, the R model can do timing mods digitally through the PC instead of mechanically

The original II model altered the sensors to the stock ECU to make changes to the Fuel. The III model actually intercepted the signals to the Fuel injectors and manipulated the fuel directly. The IIIR also adds timing mods. The PCII only existed for a brief while on the 12.



I hope this helps.

You sure about that, Easy?? I think if you check with Dynojet you'll find that there have only been PCIII and PCIIIr models for the ZX-12R. There were some Power Commanders sold for the 12R that were labeled as PCII, but they were really PCIII units and had the wrong label!!

ALL Power Commanders for the 12 are based on the PCIII technology. Some where labeled as PCII's back before we decided to call our NEW Power Commanders PCIII's. There has never been a Sensor Offset (PCII type) Power Commander for the 12.

Thanks Tearinitup, you mentioned that earlier, I had just forgotten. I have the PCII stuck in my mind from the first trials on Hank's bike.

Thanks for the correction.

It's the "red" thing. I've been facing it for a long time......



You can almost hear the "oh, you have the really good looking, and faster red one" thoughts.....

Whoops, sorry about that Red 12R Rocket, I should have given you credit. You knew your stuff.



Can I offer you a custom name for this oversight? <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

How about "Redline Addict" for my custom name? I can assure you that it is fitting!
