A 11b UK spec car with front mount and VIPEC ecu here made 408hp on a known good dyno we use as the benchmark here. People on piggy backs and same setup usually manage mid to late 300's so they do have their merits. The key thing though is are you capable to fiddling and changing maps every time you make any changes to the system ?

Hey there Aucklander… love the graph mate, you’ve mastered the XY axis perfectly! Just Imagine getting all of us in the Classroom and the Subject is “Tuning”…. She’d be an entertaining little event, undoubtedly. The one common bond between all of us is our liking of the old GTO….!

I'm curious, as long as I do my homework, roughly all I would need to take my car up a few notches is some form of piggyback computer, some data logging, and a tickle up of the fuel system. Am I reading this right? I'd really like a 2kcup car but getting the old girl to teretonga to a track day is likely as close as I'm going to get for a while so this could be a fun little project to try. If all fails I have 2 spare motors for round two and a 2nd car anyway. All I have currently is a GFB electronic boost controller. Thoughts??

Getting hold of an Emanage is quite hard these days, however I can get a brand new one from Japan for sub $400NZ (to me). Seems cheap enough what do you reckon. And Emanage Ultimate are the newest model and look to incorporate Knock Management- but the stock ECU is doing that anyway isn’t it. Whats your opinion of the Ultimate?

Are you getting that from somewhere specific in japan? I only ask as I'm going in February

It works well and has decent support on this platform which make installation and tuning a breeze....besides, you can't go wrong for that price, you should be able to flog the SAFC off for atleast a hundred bucks.
I'd recommend you grab a MAP sensor while you're at it. I don't think the Greddy sensor was too badly priced the last time I checked.

Adaptors are easy to make or have made. In the long term a better option.
That way you can use whatever stock turbos you want to. Clock them, make new hot and cold pipes for them.
It's like having a stock computer.......if and when it breaks, a replacement is relatively cheap and easy to find.
I've never had a problem with slow spool up but a leaking BOV or WG with insufficient preload will do it.
