What to buy to reprogram ECU

967 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  GSXtasy
I want to either reprogram my ECU or buy and ECU that is reprogramable.

I have done some research and looking but keep reading my self in circles. Can you please make a educated recommendation and a little info supporting your choice.

I am prepping for a Turbo kit.

Radium would be a good option, they have a stand alone set up on their website. I know BOE has tuned a few turbo cars as well. Member Evansp60 has been a great help to me for advice, might want to send him a PM. I currently have a turbo kit waiting to go on to the car after I buy a few more parts. If you are looking for an NA tune while you are waiting to go the turbo route, I have a CharlieX/Vision Function tune that I am very happy with. Do you know what turbo kit you are going to run? I know Vision Function has something in the works.

And, if you are doing a scratch turbo solo, about 30 kg of valiums.

Buy the Fastworks or Koldfire tune from BOE.

Pretty few folks will need more flexibility than the stock ECU will afford these days. Our fastworks editor is nearly----nearly unlimited in what you can do when it comes to tuning for a street car and club racers... For a pro-level team, the EFI and Motec, etc standalones start making more sense...
