tweecer

Can a "tweecer" be used to "remap" an AU I6?

I take that as a no. Would be great if an AU XR6 can be remapped it would certainly open doors to the XR6 HP engine without going the UniChip path.

Re: tweecer

unless you go to a sefi ecu right?

Well done SA pollies (for once). Hoon laws are long overdue to protect car enthusiasts against idiot drivers.

Re: tweecer

I think the V8 modules sorta work, but you need to get all of the files & stuff in binary. I think...

Do a search, i'm sure people have asked this before

Re: tweecer

Um if the Au's run EEC-V then no you can't use the tweecer on it.
The only cars are EEC-IV and it involves fitting a 5lt mustang ECU and MAF to your car and changing some other wires then fitting the tweecer and changing the maps.

Re: tweecer

Is this worth it though, wouldn't that put the whole cost up to getting a Wolf/EMS/Motronic maybe M4 MoTeC??

Re: tweecer

depends.
Total cost would be as follows:
$800 for the base model tweecer.
$250 for the ECU and the MAF sensor from america.
(not brand new btw that would be second hand)
about $500 in tuning if you couldn't do it yourself.
so that's about $1500 for the setup all done and counted for.
If you went say for the EMS or the motronic it would be $1500- $2000 for the ECU than $500 for the install and new sensors + about another $500 for tuning.
Plus when you use an after market ECU you loose heaps of standard things such as powersteering idle ajustment, air con idle ajustment.
These things can be added but it will cost more or you can run as a piggy back ECU instead but this is a messy assed way to go.
So it's about a grand saving for an ecu that will be far far smoother to operate.
THe main reason I'm going to invest in one is because it uses maf instead of MAP so it's better for boost and because looms are a total nightmare dude.
