I am looking to buy a non-running VR6 turbo corrado for a fairly good price and was wondering what a good SAEM would be for this situation. It has a fried ECU and possibly other electrical problems under the dash. I want to completely remove the stock ECU and run everything that I possibly can through a Stand-alone unit and make things as clean as possible. Is there a perticular unit that controls more engine functions than the rest? I will also consider making a custom guage cluster if that helps my situation. Kind of like what dakota digital is doing for other vehicles. I plan on running the engine at around 20psi once the bottom end is built. Any advice on this would be great thanks.

i had a microtech on my G60 motor. it uses all the stock sensors and four coils for direct fire ignition. it's for sale if you want (it has a beautiful harness on it, too) it. $950. it would come with four coils, four wires, timing wheel, timing sensor and maybe the custom dizzy for direct fire ignition (or you can do wasted spark). it has the MAP built into the computer.

remember one thing.
any stand alone is as good as you can tune it and the help you can get from others.
with that said SDS is the choice on here. simple and its on 9 sec vr6 chris greens car.
it doesnt have bells and whistle liek traction control and this and that but datalogs wideband, nitrous etc.
funny thing is people on here buy dta, autronic all the time and never get em running or use the options cause they cant tune it. im a sds guy cause my car has a rough tune and runs smooth!!! and i havent touched the values in 2 years!!

yeah something easy to tune is definatley a plus for me. I dont really need a lot of extra options on the setup, just enough to where I can ditch the stock ECU.
