Whew! I was getting tired of keeping it quiet.
I'm one of the beta testers, and I installed the ECU in about an hour (running the MAP sensor line was the hardest part.
The car fired right up, rumbled at 400 RPM for like 4 seconds and settled in to a nice 1500 RPM idle... after about 2 minutes when the engine warmed up, it was down 900 RPM and a very steady, nice idle. It's awesome.
the first thing to do was lock in the timing so the mechanical cam timing would match what the ECU thought the timing was. It's amazing.. you make a change on the laptop, hit "Burn to ECU" and the idle RPM change is instantaneous, then settles back down to 800-900 and the mechanical cam timing has changed. It's eerie.
The car's ready to drive as soon as you lock in the timing. I had to be vigilant not to floor it since my car's supercharged and there's no mapping for boost. That'll come soon since my LC-1's finally installed. But that was finished yesterday.
I'm completely happy with the fit, finish, and ready-to-go-ness (?) of the PnP. Guys who don't have the time to build a unit would DEFINITELY benefit from this. It's sweet.
