Did thanks, results belowbefore committing to anything speak to Jez and see if you can get your standard GTi ecu sorted, which you should be able to, and then decide what to do...
Misunderstanding, he can with the GTi ECU, he thought I was running a VE ECU which he can'twhy cant he Nistune your GTi ECU? they are compatible.
Thanks but I don't want to go back on myselfjfyi there's an sr16ve vz-r ecu on npoc for €150 :/
I have a GReddy wired in already, not sure about which type is best and which ones they're offering.the type 3 chip should go onto a gti ecu... he has mapped them before all you would need is something to switch the cams....
VE ecu cant have Nistune fitted iirc
Ballache Big Time Bud but I'm also fed up with peeps taking the piss plus I have the money now and can see it getting more expensive next year.Why not just fit the DE ECU & Injectors and just leave it at that for winer.
This whole remap thing is causing you a ballache I can tell.
If you just fitted the DE Injectors it'd run a lot better (no over-fuelling).
Then you can worry about a Remap whenever you've found somewhere suitable/made up your mind in the new year.
Yes, 20VE with 333cc injectors, dual FPR, VE MAF, VE TB running on a DE fuel pump and ECU in fact everything from the flywheel out is DE, all else is VE. Couldn't get the injectors off the fuel rail so I didn't bother changing them.so hang on, this is a 20ve with a de ecu and ve injectors??!!!
WOW, mine was overfuelling like hell with de injectors let alone the ve ones. I would barely be driving it without mappin let alone on those.
100% fit the de injectors mate. no wonder it's been runnin bad
Runs terrible, idles bad, starts up bad, need oil in every few months (no leaks anywhere in the engine - so I don't know where it goes), struggles to get more than 330 miles to one tank. When the cams switch I can notice the difference but it doesn't pull as it should.hmm, mine was as rich as fook. however, mine was on a sunny de ecu which being that crapy little maf and highport was probably dumping fuel in excess to make up for all the extra air being sucked in.
it ran ok-ish, but that was with the compression, bigger cams, and being run in.
how's it run atm mike? what ecu and injectors are in aatm?
Hi Mike,Cheers, I’ll give him a call later.
Right after a numerous e-mails to Steve and one really long phone call I’m back to square one. I’m very keen to get it done at FCtuning and Steve’s free in December however, I cannot afford his rates (over £425).
The confusing thing is that he cannot use my GTi ECU and that it would’ve been easier to use an eManage (sold earlier this year) or a VE ECU (sold last week), really wish I never sold them and now I’m faced with having to source another different SR20DE ECU from Oz(another £250 just to attain)?!?!
Do I get one tuner to install it and pay another £300 for a remap with FC or do I stay with FC and risk the cost spiralling to £700/£800+. One thing’s for sure, I’m gonna cry if I end up spending the same for a standalone! Suggestions anyone?
don't think he wants to go there, as he has already stated he doesn't want to go back to a VE ecu, and its not exactly a simple thing that Laurens is doing, he already spent £500 + with on that tune up you mention and car is still not ideal, cause of no cam switching ability...Hi Mike,
I would have a chat with this guy before you do anything.
He more or less has the same set up in his Primera as you and has just been to Steve at fc with results.
Why don't you try a standalone? If you got deep pockets, vi pec, etc.
I am sure our wiring looms are getting tired and old now, just chuck it all out rewire with the new ecu and off you go.
I have the ecu pinouts if you need for the sr20ve/ sr20de and sr2016ve to work with the ecu you require etc aem/ vipec.
You can also chuck the maf in the bin as these babies will not need it, map sensors.
Run launch/ traction control. Add a bit of Nos wee.
Control vvl, no need for the mss, control rpm, fuel, rpm limits, throttle control.
p.s he has also found a Nistune ve ecu map data i believe.
I'd also leave the maf injectors etc as they are, they may be running rich low down, but under high cams, if you go the DE way you will end up going mega lean
aye agree....ideally as he is now, wouldn't drive it at all, before getting it mapped...lolhmmm, i think the point is to not use the big cams at all until mapped, although i think it's a few years too late for that in mike's case lol
i'd put the de ones in for now, drive very little, on low lobes until mappin.
bore wash isn't good!
