Microtech ECU


Recommended Posts

Hi Craig, and welcome to SAU

This topic has been covered in the past (a while back), try doing a search to see what you can find.

In the mean while, whatsisname (SAU nick) is using microtech, and is very pleased with the job it does. You could try dropping him a pm.

If you are chasing one for cheap, D1 Garage (www.d1garage.com) had a second hand one, may still have it, but it will be cheaper than retail.

As for fitting and tuning, that will depend on who you see. I suggest you see a good reputeable workshop, as the tuning is something you definately dont want to scrimp on - it can make the difference between an excellent car to drive and a dog, or worse, destroying your engine. A good tune, expect to pay up to $600+.

Suggest you post up on the Melbourne forum if you are looking for a good tuner over there.

Good luck

depending on who u know u can buy them and get them installed cheap

i just bought a LTX16 ecu for under 1300 installed and semi tuned, until i put it on the dyno(costs will only be dyno time)

also a good feature with the microtechs (im unsure if others use this aswell) is that i have 2 extra injectors that the ecu can support

they seem to run very well on a few high performance cars that i have seen

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
