You're better of getting an aftermarket piggyback. See here:

the stock ecu will still run fine with the 3.45 diff. i've been running and Tickford ECU with standard diff. the wagon now has a full Tickford spec driveline but. remember these ecus are ment for the Tickford enhanced engines aswell. personally i think you should keep an eye out for one, there worth it if you plan to do any minore head work or cam change later on. there expensive and hard to come by though...

Save and get an after market ECU. I've been there done that with the DEV5a kit. Unichip (piggy back) was the worse thing I ever did. MoTeC M800 was the best thing ever.

BTW, you'd probably get a better response to this thread if you posted it in the ECU forum, not the 6cyl forum.

Cheers
