Hi Paddy, welcome to MR2.ie

Remeber to look past just the initial purchase price and have a word with your local dyno tuner. If you get a system they are familiar with it could save you €€€ of dyno time in the future.

Hi Quandry

Thanks for your welcome message! Yeah I have been talking to a local guy about a mines ecu! I also have a friend who had an mr2 with a mines and he knows the guy who remapped it for him! I've been trying to do some research on the ecu's but can't seem to find a lot of information! I find the standard information such as what you an do with them! Just not a lot in info of which ones suit mr2's! Also looking to buy a few more parts! But I think engine and ecu is first on my list

I agree with Quandry about asking around the dyno tuners to see what they are familiar with.

A word of caution though, the best ecu in the world is crap in the hands of a cowboy "tuner".

See who has a good reputation and who to avoid.

What are your plans for the MR2 ?

Found this info about MINES ecu: "The MINES ecu removes the fuel cut, raises the rev limit to 8000rpm , increases the injector cycles, is mapped for 1.2 bar of boost on 100ron fuel, and mapped for bolt on mods including air filter, exhaust, downpipe."

If that's all it does I would look elsewhere.

I have read about people using the Megasquirt pro for the MR2. It seems to be in your price band. Again you really need to discuss what your goals are with a good tuner.

What BHP are you aiming for?
Do you really need to spend half a grand on an ECU?
Im running a 200euro greddy emanage blue piggyback for nearly 2 yrs with no issues at 330bhp and should get close to 400bhp with my next remap
