Ok, I'm debating on what I should do. I know I'm going to be keeping my stock twins. I have an engine rebuilb with around 26k on it. I have basically all the bolt ons the car can having except a midpipe which I'm going to be getting. My goal is to run around 300-325hp to the wheels and it being reliable.
What kind of ECU should I get? I thought a PFC would be best, but people are saying that's for 400+hp/single turbo setups and that you don't really need that for my goals. A regular ECU would be fine like the M2 or Pettit ECU. Here are the mods.
*HKS Mild Steel DP
*Racing Beat Dual Tip Exhaust
*RPS Performance clutch (street disc with a sport pressure plate)
*Unorthodox Racing Underdrive Pulleys, anodized blue
*Greddy Profec B spec ii in a custom akiratdk din plate
*Greddy turbo timer
*Blitz boost guage in a RE-A steering column pod
*White faced gauges, reverse glow with dead needles
*51R Battery Tray
*Ebay Torque Brace
*Ebay Strut Tower Bar
*SO-3 Pole Position tires w/80% tread
*HKS blowoff valve
*Fan switch mod
Like I said, the only things I really need to do/would do, is midpipe, ecu, and injectors. I will be installing the midpipe/injectors the same time I would do the ecu. I want the engine to be reliable so I want to hold 12psi even if I don't reach my HP goals.
Depending on what type of mid pipe you get. I had all bolts on in my FD(FMIC, CB, DP, Intake, No airpump, pulleys, etc) with my Pettit ECU. I was using a resonated catless midpipe running 12psi and it was starting to get a little lean (12.3 AFR with 93 octane gas). But I will still recommend the PFC for fine tuning.
on a knightsports ECU I'm getting 11-12lbs boost, no spikes with it. If you dont want to fool with tuning options and you know you wont be doing more mods than that midpipe, an upgraded ECU is the way to go, no hassles.
