unichip or aftermarket computer

well i was thinking about getting a unichip but i thought it would end up around the same price for a aftermarket computer like halteck etc.
wiring is not a problem and the aftermarket computer will respond better to future mods what are your opinions. plus i can get rid of maf and go map more space pluss cheaper. thanks

Not again !!!
IMO
Haltech,Motec clubman,EMS when it comes out etc
Tuners [eec] are good BUT no one has sorted out Aus eec's plus they keep changing on each new model....

Re: unichip or aftermarket computer

Maybe there should be a section just for aftermarket ecu's.

...............OR people could just do a search. :-)

Re: unichip or aftermarket computer

Dude, all I did with my EF was run a Wolf 2D (fuel only computer) and let the standard ECU control the ignition....you see the standard ECU runs closed loop ignition with a knock senors so basically it stops any chance of pinging.....but the best thing about it is on full throttle it will just keep advancing the ignition till it pings then back it off a few degrees, it's very clever!!!

unichip or aftermarket computer

If you've got the $$$ go aftermarket. Only a few people have got the software to re-tune unichips and they charge top dollar to do it.

Re: unichip or aftermarket computer

I say talk to Xr9Ute I can forward his mail address if you like but the best thing is to reach out and search.
You can get an A3m ecu from America pretty cheaply and these can be fully programed with currently avalible software with the Tweecer unit.
I got an a3m (same as the A9l for those in the know) for $109 from us including postage so if you tally up that plus the $800au (or $1200au for the top model) tweecer you have a fully programable setup that uses existing sensors and existing wiring to let you do anything you want to the ecu.
Also for those of us with 6cyl if you get a MAF as well (second hand range from $15 us to $140us) you can change to Sequencial multipoint and have the same freedom of programming.
Best part about using the current setup is that the standard Ford ecus have heaps more map locations and as such will end up much smoother to drive if programmed correctly.

Re: unichip or aftermarket computer

yeah dude, but for those of us with Dizzy-less ignitions, they don't make Tweecers for us yet...

Re: unichip or aftermarket computer

yeah thats right but I thought the Ef 5.0L still used the EEC VI ecu and only the 6cyl had the EEC V system.
Could be wrong of course.
