Quoting VR-4 Whore:

Quoting 3of1000:



Ok then donald trump go with the high dollar stuff even though you really don't need it.



lol ur kinda mean.. i decided to go with pro efi. now i have to choose a turbo that will do satisfy my needs. the BorgWarner EFR 8374 Turbo will be just what i NEED.




In my first post I said I was not trying to offend you, I only asked what are your goals for the car that you need such an advanced ems. I was in the same boat you were about a year or two ago. I was ready to pull the trigger on a aem ems. Then I canceled that idea and was ready to pull the trigger on a pro efi, then I canceled that idea. In the end I went with ecmtuning v3 lite with speed density and it has worked out great so far. I saved thousands of dollars.

I was just trying to help by giving you some advice based on what I have experienced. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I don't understand your question. I run both E85 and pump gas. Its nice that it can change/switch maps based on the ethanol content.

Damn GW 900awhp and a 9.1@160mph(traction issues huh)damn I'm done modding my galant then, no hopes for 10's need 1 million awhp lol....Just kidding do you have videos of the runs?

Quoting Garfield Wright:

We run DTA F.A.S.T in our Evo 8 race car. When we strapped it to the dyno, on the 3rd or 4th pull we were over 800 awhp. We stopped @ 999 because we ran out of fuel on e98 & 4 2100cc injectors. We ran the car @ 900awhp to a best of 9.1? @ 160. The car could have gone high 8's on that pass but one of the bov was starting to come apart & the car lost 10 psi up top causing the power to drop off. AEM still has that slow cranking start. I think they fixed the loosing maps issues they were having because we haven't seen it happening with customers cars anymore. As long as you choose a stand-a-lone with the options you want @ the price you want to pay, you'll be alright. We have traction control, boost by speed, launch control & don't require an additional/piggyback ignition system.

When the car comes back out this year, it will have 8ea 2100cc injectors, dry sump, beefed up rearend, a Shep PPG dog box & a few hundred more horsepower. Even though it was initially setup for Nitrous, we haven't ran it with spray yet. It's a straight 2.0L.

I am not a tuner by any means but lets say I have been around quite a few very fast cars each with different stand alone ems's what ever. The most important thing is to get a system that whomever the tuner is will be familiar and that meets all your needs and budget for the car. As quite a few people said hands down motec maybe one of the best systems out there but quite pricey.If you are a baller though forget all that crap and get this it will do everything you need and then some.Good luck with whatever choice you make.

where do you get e85 and why not run straight up e85? i was unaware that it is available in nj.

LOL where have you been. There are several fueling stations in NJ. They have one in East Orange and another in Newark near the airport.

I do run straight E85 but sometimes I need to run regular gas. It makes life easier that I don't have to drain the fuel tank or anything. I can just pour it in and the sensor will tell the ECU the content and it will change the map accordingly.

Most ECU's should be able to do that these days (good ones anyway).

You just need to setup an e85 sensor which outputs to the ecu the content of e85 to which the ecu would reference the value of the sensor and trim the fuel/ign map to suit.

I run this type of compensation with air temps on my vr4 as I get about -60 degrees C at the start of a run and 0 degrees C at the end. I gain about 50hp with the cooler temps and the tune is simply adjust via air temp compensation tables on the Autronic.

So in the fuel flex case, you could create a map to which fuel is adjusted via the ethanol reading. Ignition can also be adjust to suit.

This should be doable on the VIPEC and the MOTEC (M400 / M800 / M84 series only, not the early M4/M8/M48) as they are both highly flexible systems.

The VIPEC is actually based on the LINK ECU (nz made).

But in the end, the computer is only as good as the tuner so make sure you choose something that your tuner is comfortable with.

I tune my own cars. I am slowly learning how to rebuild transmissions as well. I want to be able to know everything about cars so I don't have to rely on other people to get things done. Its not that I don't trust other people but I like doing my own work. I am very picky I guess you can say.

I mean I just read books and papers to I start understanding how things work which makes life easier. Right now I am in the middle of boost compensation tuning my VR4 with AEM EMS. Supra probably will get tuned on E85 sometime in December on an ECU (haven't decided on a platform yet).
