There's no need to use the Wolf, the stock ECU can be reprogrammed and people have seen VERY good results with it, i'd sell the wolf and use the money to reprogram your stock ECU.

And your manifold will be to suit eseries with round ports, the BA's have oval ports, not sure if you can use the manifold either.

the manifold does have round ports but is multifit,it will bolt up to a ba.and i live 2 1/2 hours from melbourne,if i could id rather use the wolf so i can tune it myself after each upgrade

You could by the workshop level tuning software and flash tuner to tune the factory ECU till your heart is content but be prepared to fork out close to 3k for it.

Yes the wolf is cheaper but it has nowhere near the resolution and mapping capabilities of the factory Barra ECU. Here's a classic example. Nizpro scrapped the Motec M800 for their 1000+hp B series turbo motor because the part throttle driveabillity was compromised with the Motec. Yes you can have 3D mapping with the motec but the load points blow out to every 1000rpm. Hardy what you would call ideal for anything other than wide open throttle driving.

Talk to the Guys at VCM, i have just Bought VCM suite which allows all your tuning and changes to be done to the stock ecu for $950 and licenses for 4 ford 6 cylinders included. ( all the turbo stuff is in there), you can download as many ecus as you want and only have to use the license for the car you want to modify ecu in, and once you have licensed that car you can play and tune forever, give them a call, i have found there support very good so far, only had it for a week, it came overnight and im 4 hours from adelaide. you will need a basic laptop but Seems alot more versatile than 3k for flash tuner and software. there site will also show you which tuners are using there stuff. good luck
