Hey fellas. I'm looking at getting an ecu in the near future and was wondering if the power fc is still a good option. I know haltech link etc are the go nowdays due to e85 and map sensors. But I'm just after a plug and play unit and am not looking at e85. To the guys with them what are the pros and cons also how is fuel consumption vs stock. Car is a series 2 gtst with intercooler, exhaust, gcg highflow, GFB electronic boost controller, spitfires, coilovers. Thanks in advance

They're still a good thing but for the price you'll pay for one even second hand you can get something heaps better. There is an adaptronic plug in ecu in the sau classifieds right now for $800. Doesn't require a maf sensor, does boost control and a heap of other stuff you can utilize in the future. 

@Dose Pipe Sutututu is the seller.

And I would still choose Nistune (even on an R33 with the extra pain involved) over a PFC, any day of the week.

Me too, would also go Adaptronic over a Nistune and it cost less than a PowerFC too :)

Thanks for the quick replies. Ha ha well if it hasn't sold in 3 or 4 weeks I'll take the adaptronic off your hands 😀

No ECU is really "plug and play" - some can supply a tune that will get you to the dyno but every car is different and you will still need a tuner.
