lol, i wouldnt buy one from overseas, likely to just send you anything because you cant do anything about it, not to mention that the writing on it will be in asian :P and the cars might be different slightly (for their pollution laws, timings, exhaust notes etc)

What do you mean by NL?

the NL is designed to be a cruiser not a drag car. dont worry about getting another ecu just concentrate on headers and an aftermarket exhaust

I have both ECU's at home for sale.

Cop one will hold gears longer than a standard ECU, and wont drop into 4th under 80km/h. Makes it a but more snappy around town. South African ecu's are esentially stock ECU's, but with a tad more power as the emissions controls aren't as tight.

Only downfall is both ECU's will cost you your speed sensitive steering. Only Fairmont and up ECU's have that enabled.
