As said before, find a tuner that you like and feel you can work with. That is the first step.
Go with a product that he likes, if they dont like the product (ECU in this case) that you have.
They wont have spent time getting to know it and will not get the best possible results from it.

The one with 6 injector drivers and 6 ignition drivers...
That way you have a sequential injection and can run cop ignition ..
Though there's nothing wrong with wasted spark..[it can clear fouled plugs]
With the Microtech.. Try to buy the latest ecu...
On turbo engines it's often the ignition that limits max boost / power...
So also check what CDI system they have...It can be added latter..
Ask the guys at Microtech, they will build one for you..
They said they'll build one for my 4.0 Lexus turbo engine. From memory only
a few $100 more..But I don't think you have to ?? An off the shelf ecu should be available..

I had an LT10s on my EF.

It used the stock coil pack in wasted spark and batch fire injection.

I would strongly suggest you look into each of the major aftermarket ECU's and find out how well they support turbo setups. Once you have identified the ECU you feel is right for you then I agree with finding a tuner who knows that product very well.

By the sounds of the OP's posts, i probably shouldn't suggest it, but a Mega Squirt could be an option IF the car owner really knows their stuff in regards to engines, fuel, ignition systems & tuning it. I must admit tho, i'm yet to learn of a workshop that supports Mega Squirt ECU's in AUS.

As everyone else has said, find a tuner your happy with first, then see what ECU's he will tune, and go from there.

An aftermarket ECU will need to be engineered on most vehicles to be road legal, and will need to pass an emissions test to be engineered.

Cheers

yeah cheers for the replys. The tuner i spoke to pretty much said there isn't a ecu in aus that they dont tune in his workshop so he said the choice is up to me. I just want some thing that is fairly easy to install so i can do it myself. Something that comes with a base program so i can start my car. Something that has a map sensor and can control ign timing and the bigger injectors.

Tuners say lots of things to get your business.....

Do you know other people that have used them? Were they happy?

quick question. With an aftermarket ecu with the map sensors do they run manifold pressure hose to the actual ecu it.self or manifold pressure to a map sensor then a signal to the ecu

in the case of an ems ecu the map is built into the ecu.. so a vacuum line runs from the manifold directly to the ecu..
