lt8 map sensor upgrade...

ok ive noticed that microtech likes to take their time with well,everything. lately ive been thinking of upgrading the map sensor on my lt8(blue if that means anything) from the 20psi to something that can read 35-40psi. does anyone know if i send my lt8 to microtech, will i see it within the next month? or next year? what is the turn around time? are there any other options i can get on the lt8 ecu turned on or opened up? who can i send it to?

I went through a shop in florida when I upgraded my lt10s. It took a couple weeks, nothing all that bad at all.

I can do the upgrade. All map sensor upgrades do end up coming to australia.

Turn around is 2-3 days for upgrade.

Pm me if your interested.

Well you have a 2.5 bar map sensor in their.

You can put a 3 bar in their which will let you go to 28psi.

Or a 4bar map sensor which will let you go to 42psi.

You can also change your revcut from fuel cut to ignition cut for 2 step.

You can go from 9000rpm mapping to 12000rpm mapping.

You can enable onboard datalogging.

How much you want to spend really at the end of the day and what you want to use.
