So ALOT of people have been asking me syvecs vs motec. i wanted to make a thread that Darren @ motec, Ryan.G @ syvecs uk(and or Syvecs USA), any vendor that sell either or and customers that want either solution can battle it out in this convo.
Syvecs has recently released an update that fixes shifts and utilizes the torque better making it faster than it was before... proof of that was John's GT-R becoming the worlds fastest Alpha12. accomplished something an alpha12 has not done prior. from 8.9 to 8.61
Motec has literally no test results publicly. meaning no customers have told anyone about any runs on the drag strip. i have heard shops talk about tuning it, or at least HAVE it in their possession. Ivey Tune, T1, Boost Logic, AMS, and iirc SP Engineering.
MoTeC has stated that they will be developing 12injector and i think they even said flex fuel, both of which the syvecs does already. Motec also states that the engine/transmission control is the most advanced around, makes trans happy and makes it very fast. If you talk a shop that has dug into the Motec a bit, they have said how great it is, but the one person who told me that doesnt tune with syvecs. but this fact shows me the motec will be as fast most likely.
All i want to see now, is Motec to finally show some numbers publicly (if they havent done any pulls, i want to see them make some pulls, lol).
from talking to some people they seem to think that Syvecs isnt perfect, some quirks about it, but i think they can't deny the added trips for saftey in any stand alone (when paid to add and tune them) are well worth it over stock ecu.... granted a stand alone cant save EVERYTHING (like when your fuel is NOT labeled MTBE when it should be and it affects your injectors swelling them and causing a failure).
The other thing about the stand alones is there evolution... like syvecs has evolved alot since its introduction. fixing shifts, better torque handling, cruise control etc.
unknown evolution of motec but it just released and i have not really talked about it other than with Sean Ivey, and only briefly about it. i have heard the 12inj solution is working and will be ironed out, dunno any eta. i dunno if this delay is why we have not seen any build on the track yet with the motec?... i remember omega only uses 6inj.
So with this all said, any corrections to the above id like to hear. i may have made a mistakes, or just didnt make what i said as clear as i wanted to make it.
Id like to hear from Motec, syvecs, customers and vendors (who sell and dont sell either solution). hell even cobb and ecutek people/customers etc chime in.
