EF ECU won't work.

EL ECU will work, but you'll need to modify the loom a bit, as well as install Smartlock. You don't need to put on a BBM, but fuel/spark mapping won't be optimal.

Re: ea and stage 3 crow cam

you can get a chip which plugs into the bottom of your stock ECU which will retain idle for you with a lumpy cam.

Re: ea and stage 3 crow cam

New about $700 but if u keep an i out u might find some on the forums or ebay cheap like starting at $100. Make sure u get the right one though. Some are for smart-lock only computers.
