Re: ecu

the ECU need not be chipped as long as you run an FMU.(fuel management unit)
i ran 8pounds boost with and FMU which is a fuel pressure regulator that increases fuel pressure on the return line as boost increases. Also a BTM (Boost timing control) is required as boost is applied the engine timing will need to retarded. these two functions will see you running perfectlty. start with this and you will be fine. MSD and Crane both make BTM's, vortech and others make FMU's
