Pros and cons of Lt8...thinking of getting one

My buddy is selling the unit below. Few things:

What are the good and bad things about this unit?
Do I need a certain harness for my car?
Will this unit help me FULLY tune my FC?
Getting it for $500...is that too much?
How old are the LT8s?
and I also see a lot of people calling it LTX8...any difference?


my car & mods as of now:

S5 base model w/ T2 conversion

- JDM S5 T2 motor rebuilt w/ monster street port
- S4 turbo
- stock 550 cc injectors (will replace with 720 & 1000 cc soon)
- Walbro 255
- RB FCD
- AEM UEGO wideband
- SAFC
- AVC-R
- 3" turbo-back exhaust
- no emissions




Thanks in advance for any help

Youd have to wire it in manually in the car. Its far from a plugin unit.

Microtech is a very basic ecu, will allow you to tune your car but not much else.
If you want a ecu to do everything else. Get a platinum 1000.

hmmm. I'm also exploring the possibilities of a Power Fc.

Better? Worse?

Power fc is great if your loom is in great condition.
Not ok condition. It has to be really good otherwise any plugin computer will have problems, if not know, in the long run.

Power fc though is an excellent ecu.

If your loom is in poor condition and you are on a budget, microtech is fine, if you can afford it go new haltech.
