question for the turbo boys???

hey guys..

just wondering what sort of engine management systems you used for your turbo set ups.. i went for e-manage as it was a cheaper alternative then a say a haltech or similar.. but they dont work well with the I6..
What did you all use and how do they run?
i dont want to spend thousands either its just a basic set up..

thanks

when i had my silvia i used a microtech worked well and a mate has done a turbo ed for a customer and used a micrortech and worked excellent, speak to anthony at maztech if ur in melbourne, he tunes the micortechs, when i had my silvia done it was about $1800 fitted and tuned on the dyno

If it didn't work well on the 6 [Haltech] then it wasn't tunned or fitted properly!!!!
Yes we have the Microtech on our little 12 valve 3 cylinder 1 ltr efi turbo group N twin cam.. Charade...With handset it's a nice piece.....
This engine hauls for a I litre...[approx 160h.p]

Microtech is the way to go. The e-manage may be cheaper but there arent many good places that can tune them well.
