If it was tuned on 98oct premium fuel i'd say between 180-190rwkw

92 stock unleaded 170rwkw

saying this as with 98 octane fuel they can advance the timing to get a bit more out of it, have you looked into getting twEEcer instead of just ELGT ecu, then you can have 5 tunes on a switch and have both options.

Yeah it looks like I'll be getting a custom tune if the wife allows me too. Otherwise I'll have a few bits and pieces up for sale shortly.
I'll be going the Switch Chip Eliminator as the tune of choice.
I'll have a word to BPT today, I'll go in and see them. I've already emailed them and got a good response. Then take the info back to the wife and see what happens.

I'd be happy with 180rwkw or 240rwhp. That would be about right in the stakes of $100 per kw.
I'll let you guys know what the outcome is in the next few days.

The email reply I got from BPT is that they recommend the Switch Chip so I won't be heading down the TwEECer path. Thanks for the offer though.

OK. Go the ELGT ECU installed. The car no longer idles. It starts and then stalls. Its happy to stay above 1000rpm if I hold it with the pedal and its happy to rev past that.
Do you guys think its just that fact it needs 24lb injectors to cure the idle/stall?

I tried it both with the ELGT MAF and the stock MAF and it stalled both times.

Could be the lack of 24's, but i feel that there may be issues elsewhere. I doubt that running lean at idle would cause it to stall, if anything it should rev a little higher due to smaller injectors. Have you cnahged the TB yet and if so was the TPS reset?
I will think about it and seewhat i can come up with.

Pete.
Pretty sure you will need the 24lb's in there to get it running properly.
I take it the battery was dis-connected throughout the ECU swap?

Absolutely the battery was disconnected. I don't want to to take a chance with blowing an ECU.

Still using stock TB so TPS is set correctly still.

I'll get the injectors changed today and see what happens.

I disconnected the EGR as the ECU controls the valve for the EGR and ELGT ECU doesn't have that.

I've dropped my car off this morning to get the injectors replaced. $150 to just replace them.
Should get it back at lunch time.

I'll let you all know how it runs. Hopefully it will idle otherwise I'm screwed. I got no money left to d**k around with little problems that won't make a car run.

Why did you pay someone to do the job. Takes like 30 mins to do the swap yourself

Timmeh doesn't like getting grit under his nails!

Pretty weak to not do injectors yourself pete!

Yeah I dropped it off. It's going to cost $150.
It looks like a pain to get to. It'd take me more than 30 minutes.

How do you do it in 30 minutes? Do you remove the manifold?

Unbolt TB cable bracket and remove.Unbolt top of manifold. Unplug all connections to sensors etc that are on top of manifold.Remove top half of manifold. Unbolt fuel rails and lift up. Unplug injectors then remove. Place new injectors in holes, attach rails. Re install is opposite of removal.
