EMS8860 is not true SEFI in V8 output, with either injection or ignition, you need to go to something expensive like Autotronic or Motec etc to get sequential using an aftermarket ECU.


The EMS 8860 will be true sequential injection within the next few weeks/months. It already has 8 injector drivers but the current software only controls 4. The update was scheduled before christmas but they seem to be running behind.

Still the Tweecer setup has more tuning features, mainly because of the MAF and open/closed loop systems, should have lower emissions and is cheaper.

LOL I was just checking out the EMS forum, and thought it was you that posted asking for when are the updates coming.

Have a look how long I have been a member (damage181) and how long those updates have been coming for V8, I don't think it is high priority for them somehow, bigger markets out there for RICERS.

Cheaper......but by how much? I doubt it would be sub$1000 mark just for the EFI setup. For a Inline 6 I may as well get a Microtech LT10s for $1200.

Be nice if it was below $1000 though. Would have to consider it seriously.

Fool's hope. :lol:

Yeah I know the update has been a long time in the making but from what I have heard it is all done, they are just testing and fine tuning. But apparent;y they are now on holidays for a month so I guess it will be pushed back into feb at the earliest. I was going to go for an 8860 but after a couple of talks with them I think it would be far safer going with the Tweecer. I just wish the tweecer had more aussie EEC support and better documentation, but its getting there.

Ask Pete for the main Tweecer dude's email address, post it in the forum for many Aussies to email him, he might get the idea we want Aussie ECU support.

Yeah probably be a good idea but from what I see on the Tweecer forums, the development team is extremely busy trying to iron out the existing bugs in the software. After that is done we will probably see more features plus they may have more time to add some more aussie support. The problem is that we don't have a huge market for the Tweecer down here so support may be slow coming.

Waiting on final pricing but I will probably be getting an A9L US EEC, which seems to have the most development done as well as allow me to use the Tweecer RT.
