Default Piggyback ECUs

Has anyone experimented with any piggyback ECUs on the trionic 7?

I know that in many other cars, piggybacks like the GReddy eManage and the APEX'i S-AFC would be overridden by the computer

However, I'm hearing the eManage Ultimate and APEX'i AFC-NEO are having good success.

I'm looking for an option to mainly just tune fuel when going to a larger turbo (larger than any of the off-the-shelf tunes) and larger injectors.

I would like to avoid having to purchase a $2000+ standalone.

Also - is there a straight up, user enabled trionic tuner like Hondata for Hondas? One that you can connect the ECU to a laptop and write directly onto the ECU from inside the car?

not as simple as hondata with these cars, although it exists. t7suite would be what youre looking for- youre gonna need a few things if you want to do your own tuning, though.

just start reading up on ecuproject.com- you can learn everything you need to know from there.

ECUproject looks awesome.

NIRA, for an additional $2,000+. Trionic is a proprietary engine management system, so the piggyback systems you're familar with won't work.


so....


again, the limited scope of what you're trying to do can be best handled by reading through ECUProject.com
