I just purchased a LT10s for my TII swapped GSL-SE and it is currently on its way from Aussie Land. I bought it through HP Motoring on Ebay. They are a race shop in Miami with some links to RX-7 racing. Since I have not got it yet, I can't comment on their quality or service, but the price was pretty good. I got the LT10s for $950 and the laptop adapter for $140 plus shipping. Looks liek the install shouldn't be too bad based on the Microtech Wiring Diagrams.

I'd be REALLY cautious about buying a used EMS especially costing hudreds of dollars.
I'd dish out a couple hundred more to have a new unit with warranty.
You know and I know there are scammers and if you buy an EMS from someone who isn't honest or no idea what he has (Microtech is engine specifc), you're in for a long road of diagnosing your problem.

Plus they don't give you a phone number, just e-mail. The guy on E-bay is easy to get ahold of. His name is Jeff at HP Motoring and his # is 1-800-868-7174.

KD Rotary sells, installs and tunes microtec. I took my FD there last week for a check up (just bought it) and Dave said Microtec is his favorite ECU. They are one of the most respected Rotary shops around and are just around the corner (so to speak) from you in New Tripoli (near Kutztown) PA. I'm not sure what Dave charges but its good to know he knows his stuff and can install and tune the ecu on their in house dyno.

Their website is http://www.kdrotary.com/

The 89-92 microtech is meant for t2 models (it's labled after the year) while the 87-93 would most likely be for N/A

The difference is maybe within which boost sensor it uses.

You order it through HP Motoring? I personally spoke to Jeff at HP and he said the it works for S4 and S5 TIIs. Also, the computer has a built in pressure sensor, pretty sweet.

Not yet. He said that he was ordering 6 Microtechs from Australia and that a few were back ordered. He decided to wait till all 6 were ready and have them all shipped together. Save on the shipping. But considering the price he is charging, can't really complain.

About 3-weeks. I think he said he was getting them Friday, which is today, and would seen it to me two-day UPS.

Jeff is easy to get ahold off and will answer your questions, but it did take a while. But for $950 vs. $1300+ from the other guys, I can't complain.
