Just buy whatever your tuner feels comfortable tuning.

With what SCT can do with the stock ECU, i would look at retaining it. Speak to Yobboford about his setup. It meets emmissions and is legal due to the retaining of the stock ECU.

using the stock EF ECU + J3 is good for anything under 300rwkw.
if you want more then that then you'd be better off with something more configurable.

I believe it is some kind of J3 Chip. Seems to work well so far.

Hi-Torque at Labrador. They are bloody good at what they do. They managed to get 20rwhp more out of a mates turbo ED than another well known place got on more boost!

I've not dealt with him, but have heard very good reports on Matt Spry from PITS Automotive (Performance Injection Tuning Service....or something like that). He's on the gold coast and alot of people seem impressed with his tuning.
