Need advice on an ECU for the I6

I been trying to find a manual EF ECU with no avail for the last 3-4 months and now I decided to go for an aftermarket ECU, i know there are alot on the market but I rather ask here so I can make an informed decision. I don't think I have the money for a MoTeC but i basically bugeted about 1200$ to 1500$ plus tuning. I need to mention that I would like a few things from an aftermarket ECU such as open loop, and I have to mention the EF don't have a dizzy and I would like to keep the ABS working, don't care much about SmartLock tho. Any ideas will be welcomed and if anyone has an aftermarket ECU in their EF's please let me know how your opinion on them.

Thanks in advance
