Ecu upgrade question


Recommended Posts

No. A chipped computer won't make a difference with only those mods. When/if you finally go that route, don't just buy a chipped ecu off the net. Take it to a reputable tuner and have it chipped and tuned. You'll also have to get an OBD-1 ECU and a conversion harness.

Cams. Get a good intake and a nice set of cams, then a tune would be a good investment. I hope you realize that a chip and tune will probably run you about 300-500 though (maybe more). You'll have the cost of the conv. harness, the ecu, chipping services and the tune, plus dyno time (unless you get a street tune)

OBD1 P28- $100-150

chipping kit- $18

pre-basemapped chip to run your cams or whatever mods you have- $18

 

now i dont know how inclined you are with soldering , but you can do this yourself if you are. if not , shouldnt cost you much to have someone that can solder put it in for you.
