If you need a ecu contact T.I performance, I'm sure they can modify it to run no smartlock and auto to manual.

Re check you're timing, make sure it's warm when you check it/ change it.

Try Resetting your ECU, once it is cleared go for a drive and drive it like yo stole it.
My old girl still likes cruising on 120 to 130 with 225/50/16 tyres on it and can still reach 160+ down the straight at Phillip Island (one of the perks of running security there) even though the motor has done 630k un-opened,

the rear caliper handbrake assemblies on the EA-ED are prone to seizing up. so they lock on partially. make sure the levers on the rear calipers are contacting the stops correctly

i had the same prob wif my eb, always maxed out at 160 when trying to overtake trucks and found out the cable wasnt long enough to open tha butterfly. easy fix, cut the end of the cable off and bent it into a hook shape so it stayed on the throttle lever. cable was tighter n opened up more on full throttle. would keep up wif my mates bf wif exhaust and pod n back seats pulled out
