power fc

Postby newtezza » Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:34 am

Hey I'm new to this site. I don't realy know how to use it. So anyways I need a little help. I have a 99 rs200 altezza. I bought a greddy turbo kit for it and I got all the parts and fittings but I didn't get a power fc. It is not installed on the car as yet so I was wondering will the car run 5psi-6psi of boost on stock ecu or will I have to get a next power fc if so what a good choice. Also where I live there no tuner shops or any of that sort. I just want to run boost an prevent detonation/misfire in the engine. Any other modification will be helpful. 8)

Stock ECU will only run the car in standard set up it doesn;t even like an induction kit let alone a turbo. So yea you'll need to get a power FC and ideally someone to tune it before you try drive it, the power FC comes with a base map that would just about get you to your tuner and no more. A power FC for the tezza is gonna set you back around 550 or 600 euro and another 300 to 400 for tuning depending on who you get to do it.

What part of the world are you in?

Personally, I don't like PowerFC's... They are old and outdated...
For similar money you can buy a Haltech sprint 500 which is fully standalone and much more powerful with many more functions. Although, I'm not sure if the sprint 500 model does vvti stuff...

I live in south america, guyana I will have the second tezza like this in my country( from the info I gathered/not to sure). We have factory turbo cars like evos, wrx,etc but no turbo cars build form strach. Tuners come in the country the country for races. So I will work with one of them. I just want to know what fc to use like apexi, greddy,etc. I also heard that the injectors need to be upgaded to lager one (not sure about this).
Any help will be useful. Thank you

i would make sure you have means of tuning your car before you go about converting it with a turbo. i.e a flat bed truck to take it to the rolling road, or a mobile rolling road

you dont even want to turn the ignition in an ideal world without it being tuned.

greddy emanage would do the job aswell as the FC power. i would go with a GReddy emanage either blue or ultimate if you have the funds,

like i said. there is nothing you can do untill its tuned with a piggy pack ecu. or spash out on a hole new ecu. i would suggest Greddy e manage blue as an ideal simple piggy back. then straight on the rolling road

If you dont have any tuners or a dyno where you are then get somthing basic like an emanage (piggyback) ecu and do it yourself.
The emanage is very easy to tune and comes with the tuning software, you wont get the gains that you would from a standalone ecu like power fc but you will be able to tune your car.
You will need to get yourself a wideband lambda and ideally make yourself some det cans, you will need a laptop aswell.

Hey well I spoke to some peole in an evo group and you know what there is a dyno in the town. I didn't know about it because nobody talks about it...I feel kinda stupid now :mrgreen: .Well got the machine all tuned up its way better than it was . I think it now it does 0-100km between 4.5s-4.8s before it was 7.3s. Max it out to 180 it was awssssssssome and fuel consumption is alright my budget. So I got a pic of the dyno results but I don't know how to upload it :( .

Now I'm planning to install a speed cut remover because I feel I'm not getting all out of the vehicle. 6 gear culd handle much more from what I'm feeling . It think that I will do aprox 240km. But right now I don't know what to do :roll:. Don't worry where my village is the road is 4 miles long and arrow straight(not realy but there is no turns on the road very low traffic) so I will have road to do this. Any reviews on the speed cut remover. Thanks every body
