Aftermarket ECU reviews - input

Just got back from PRI in Indy. What a great show! Knowledge is power and plently of it was obtained. From basic stuff to next level lemans and Top fuel stuff.

Looking for inputs on aftermarket ECUs. Spoke in depth with many companies (along with shops/ users of some) and would like to hear some other's inputs. Not hearsay , but down in the trenches inputs. Most will all work and do what you need and it seems to come down to software usability unless you have a freak application with a bazillion sensors. Most off these can and will sister with your factory ECU so you can control your drivetrain while the car still does the body.

Ones in considersation:

Bosch (Nice but mostlikely not practical due to cost. Their ABS is nice but at 7-8k bill)
Motech (Good but feel Haltech would be the choice between the two)

Yes, you did note that Holley & FItech were not on there.

Lets hear some banter...

I'm not familiar with anyone on this board running an aftermarket ECU.

I'd go on LS1tech or yellowbullet and read up there. Plenty of info.

Holley and Mega squirt are probably the most popular choices.

This probably isn't going to be much help. Only aftermarkets I played with were on LT1 cars and years ago. Electromotive and Motech.

Programming is very similar, they both worked about the same. And back then, the units differed by what was included and what was an add-on. multiple window switches, additional inputs / output.

I assume you are looking for fuel injection tuning? If not, look at the MDS power grid. My friends that run carb'd roots blowers or Nitris like that system. I have actually never worked with it myself.

1) Build it
2) Race it
3) Break it
4) Repeat!!!
