New with AEM EMS V1

Good evening,

I just picked up an AEM EMS V1 for my 1999 honda civic EX (d16Y8 motor). I am wondering 2 things for starters:

1) When I go to install, do I just leave the battery connected, remove the old ECU, install the AEM ECU, and then plug my laptop in and go? (Will leaving the battery connected damage anything during the install?)

2) Can I already anticipate there to be a usable base tune for my EX civic installed on the EMS or will I have to modify a base tune to make it work with my currently stock civic? (The EMS system I purchased is made for my 99-00 civic EX 5-spd vehicle).
