Hi guys not sure if im in the right bit - my cousin fiance has told me i can get a ecu chip that plugs straight into the normal ecu that will give me crap loads of extra power - im just wondering how much can you buy these for and where i can get them from? because his contact has shut up shop now.

cheers

if your motor is stock and you get a flash tune it wont give you jack s**t power maybe a coupla KW and more economy. If you run any aftermarket cam you will need a flash tune then.

G&D at Dandenong do them and do them well.

I've had a flash tune since about Feb 06 and it makes a hell of a difference.

Cost is variable depending on tuning time however you will be looking at about $1200 for the flash tuner box and custom tuning. You can go cheaper (about $600 or $700) for the flash tuner box and generic tunes though.

You can start with the generic tune and then pay to have custom tunes any time in the future. They are the identical box, the price difference is if you have base generic tunes or something custom done you your car.
