The Unichips are reprogramable, it'll work on anything with fuel injection. They do work, but you have to remember, they're only a piggyback computer, they work in conjunction with the factory ECU. They're only limited in what they can do, so don't expect too much out of them, remember the saying - "You only get what you paid for" (and the Unichips are relatively cheap...)
Well they sort of can, just that a V8 distributor box will not run a 6 cylinder with coil packs in most cases (eg EL V8 uses a unichip A box, - EL 6 uses a C box). A Ford V8 distributor will run a Ford 6 cylinder wth distributor (eg EL V8 A box - EF 6 uses A box) This is why the XR6 unichip worked on the xr8 - both coil packs. It doesn't apply to all coil packs and all distributors, the jap stuff is different but for the sake of the point here and proper cars (Fords) let me know if my ramblings haven't explained it well enough, regards
It can control extra injectors, can put through completely differant maps and control timing in any way you want.
I don't know why people bag them, all the people I've talked to that ACTULLY have them think they're great.
I sure as hell won't be spending $3000 plus on my electrics for my turbo setup.
So considering your the millionth person to say they suck ED195kw what are they limited in EXACTLY?
Breathe! It's only the internet....
Yes, I never meant they were bad, if fact I actually meant to say they were good. But you have to remember, they are not a stand alone ECU and as such, cannot be expected to perform miracles.
The factory closed loop circuit on all of the Ford ECUs is not adjustable (the range between 1200rpm and 3000rpm) even with the Unichip installed. Althought the unichip does not affect this range, it still does wonders to the rev range outside of that window. Although this window seems fairly large and right in the middle of the rev range, in reality it isn't really a problem for the average car enthusiast. So even though the unichip does have flaws like these, it also has an attractive price (around $1000 fitted), plus you can remove it and put it in your next EFI car.
