Hi all

I would like to know if the standalone ECU like Motec or Syvecs would perform better than COBB or EcuTek.

In other words, assuming that I change nothing to my build, will I get better times in quarter mile or 100 to 200 times by just going standalone ECU ??

Best regards

Thanks for your input Tim
I know running Syvecs or Motec will provide much more safety features, but my question is regarding the performance of the car using them

Consistency of performance is where the motec really kills cobb or ecutek. Can extract the most out of the car and have it perform consistently. I use to have to mess with the Cobb a ton at each track, motec is worlds better

The main advantage of a standalone is processing power, FAST internal logging, and additional safety features. 

 

 Its not 100% needed to go fast, but it is certainly nice!

To me my favorite part of a standalone like MOTEC is the advanced traction control. Like dsm_alpha mentioned, I have to mess with Ecutek adjustments quite a bit. Just the slightest change in weather, surface grip, etc throws the current settings off.

With that being said, good tuners who know how to use all the features of Motec are far and few between. I have a friend with an Alpha 12 on Motec and he has had many issues getting it to run properly. Also, he's only using like 10% of the capabilities of that ECU. MOTEC and a great tuner go hand in hand.
