Recommendations on ECU for a turbo engine

Post by ricvw » Wed Aug 15, 2018 8:52 am

If you were going to fit efi turbo to 2.1 engine which would you fit? I would be after something Which was as close to fit and set up and forget if there is such a thing, the engine currently has a old CB efi with dials in the cab which are glued in place any recommendations greatly revived.

I recommend you fine your nearest rolling road that you trust, and ask them.

Mappers can be funny about what systems they will touch, and you need one they'll help you with.

At the end of the day, most ECU's will do the job, but it's better you don't have to travel 100's miles to get it on the rollers.

I've used DTA / OMEX / CB numerous times. I own DTA and OMEX ECU's. Jen's has DTA.

The newer CB are better at self learning than the old system.

Most systems run in closed loop if you set them up that way, but need setting up first
