    Turbo Management?????

    Hey all,
    I am in the process of doing the s50 swap into an e30 m3 and I have decided that I am going to turbo the motor. I have a t3/t4 turbo setup and 36lbs injectors. Basically I need to know what everyone is doing for the ECU management? Is there a chip for an s50 running 8lbs of boost? Or do I need to find someone to custom program the ECU for me. I don't mind doing either but if you know of anybody who can do this please let me know!

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Megasquirt is your best option!

      I disagree with you on the MS option. Megasquirt is just the cheapest and most primative... There are many much better options out there. I would run Autronic, AEM, Electromotive or Motec. I would look around at what the local tuning shops are using, so they can tune the car for you or help you with the install.

          ms is the choice if you plan on changing your setup, this cat has no idea whats up

          ms is open source and constantly upgraded, ms2-e will be on par w/most standalone, and now w/a canbus you can daisychain them

            You are right they have much easier to use software and more shops that know how to tune them... I dont know how that makes it ricer. I personally have MS on my car. If I had the ability to run a plug and play AEM, Autronic or anything I would have done it in a heart beat.

              Huh?
              Are you serious, or just trying to stir shit?

              To the OP- listen to backtrail and go see what the local tuning shops have to say.

              If you are into DIY then megasquirt could be a decent option.

                you would be a fool to take your ride to a shop to tune it if they could not figure out megaturne, the new locost ems are the way to go unless you want as much resolution as possible to win a race where regulations make the fight for each 1/4 hp very expensive, the individual cylinder trim(that actually still could be done w/a daisy chain ms2) and ultra high resolution needed to keeps things together on very highly stressed engines


                open source code written in C opens up so many options and gives you a product that is in constant development

                so i am serious, get a ms2 and a sticker

                      I recommend VEMS over MS anyday for many reasons, but for this engine with it's variable valve timing I think the best option is Autronic, preferrably the SM4. Find a tuning shop that can handle it.

                      MegaSquirt is rarely the best option unless cost is all that matters.

                          The shop I used to work at ran Electomotive on there s50/s52s, the nice thing about them is you can buy one that will plug into you s50 harness if you go through vic sias.

                          http://www.siastuning.com/default.htm

                          The only problems was we tried out 3 tuners befor we found somone that was firmilar with electromotive software.

                          In a nut shell its great hardware its just the software that can be tricky to use.

                          I have heard good things about autronic but they dont have anyone offering plug and play system.
