Phil, what do you think the advantages are of a stand alone over the stock ECU? I will probably never get one, just wondering what advantage they have over piggy backs (aside from rev limiter ajustment). Seems as if the stock ECU does timing advance just fine, at least for those of us running pump gas boost.
Standalone's biggest benefits are:
1) You have much more control over every parameter in the computer. Cold temp fuel map adjustment, closed loop throttle percentage, etc. Even the standard fuel map and timing maps have many times the adjustability of an SFC/AFC/GCC and/or ITC.
2) Adjustments to the map in a standalone ecu are very stable. There's none of this "I'm resetting the ecu because I'm switching from pump gas to race gas". For example, the fuel map is set in milliseconds of pulsewidth on the injectors (not a "click" or a percentage point relative to the oem fuel map that is constantly changing due to closed-loop). This means that performance is very consistent and repeatable.
Well they're are so many to choose from how do we know which one fits are needs... I mean some people are sending in their ECUs to UPRD or GForce (maybe same thing just dif price) and call it a day. I believe the GForce only removes the need of the BCC/FCD but I haven't had it done I dunno it makes the map 10x better.
So if I get a GForce Upgrade what's the point of a standalone in my situation and which do I need or wold want..? if ne1 can even answer that question.
Hi guys sorry to bother you on your
Supra thread. But I have an 02 Lexus is300 with aristo 2jzgte single turbo swap and was hoping you guys could help me out better then lexus forums.
I have a 02 lexus is300 with 2jzgte swapped engine. I recently installed a single turbo set up (6262)
So my Supra makes a high pitch sound from the (right) rear wheel every time it makes an entire spin. I think it might have something to do with the brakes because the sound goes away when I press on the brakes. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem?
Hi all, trying to remove the output shaft seal on my MKIV 6 speed. I am having an absolute btch of a time getting this seal out. I've cruised pretty much the entire forum regarding this issue but couldn't find any specific tips. I've been prying on it as hard as I can with hooks, as shown in...
Long post alert! :)
My car is an US TT, automatic. I’ve destroyed this transmission several times, it was last rebuilt less than 5K miles ago.
I’m not looking for any real power anymore, it is a single conversion but I have the boost so low I doubt it’s much higher power than BPU.
I'm about to install my new BC 272 cams. I need some guidance with aftermarket cams. I'm reading 2 or even 3 different ways to install them in the forums. Which is safest incase they do make the motor interference?.
Do I place crank 15deg BTDC, install the cams as per TSRM, lock...
