So I went and bought a vr4 motor and currently get everything ready for a conversion of my base model. Please be nice in welcoming me I know everyone says just buy a vr4. But I'd prefer the knowledge of doing it myself rather than waiting till something breaking, and having to fix it. So I need some help with picking a ecu. I've heard Autronic is a good ecu but these were from years ago. Are they still good ecus for our cars? Any info that is updated would be appreciated thanks.

I actually know little about the current ECU offers, but I have seen a lot of talk about CHROME and JESTER ecu's.

You can search or wait for those who use them chime in...

I'm looking to go full stand alone so I can tune the car to my specifications. I'm looking to build a fun daily that can double up as a reliable track ever so few months out of the year that I can have some fun

Standalone offerings are kinda slim. You can go with AEM v2 which is dated and will no longer receive updates but is plug and play-ish and will offer basically everything you'd ever need. The newer AEM infinity won't work with the 93+ CAS trigger AFAIK. I've heard some people using Haltech but the price is quite steep so the number of people suing them are limited. Chrome ECU is basically just a flashable stock ECU and lacks the protective features most standalones have, but makes up for it in being the easiest to use and true plug and play.

Keep us updated on that, I think I’ve only seen one other person do haltec.

Coop
There is at least 3 others that have already done it and Im starting to do so this week. There is even a basic quick setup guide on here by one of them.

Pimprn and Erron Spalsbury are the other two that I know of.

Its a great ECU (more comparable to the Infinity instead of the V2) but I dont think its as popular as the AEM V2 since there isnt a plug and play version or adapter harness readily available along with the extra cost over the older V2 units.

I've always enjoyed wiring so the challenge of no plug and play, kinda helped with the picking process. I know I'll have to be careful and all that. But in my opinion it's so hard to find a good wiring harness at a junkyard. I've been all up and down Florida. Not many are even out there, let alone with good parts lol. So I figured why not make my own. This way at least I'll know it's new wires with no problems halfway down them.
