ECU from the classifieds (or ebay) - $40-50
Getting it chipped by someone who knows what they are doing - $75
Buying a Eprom Burner - $43

Total - $158

what about either a wideband or dyno time to tune it? thats going to cost you a minimum of another $300

Oh god, I knew that was coming.

So you don't have to tune with an AFC or any other engine management system? They just tune themselves? That's ------- awesome! I'm going to sell my chip burner and buy an AFC!

i have seen safley tuned afc hacks with no wide band or dyno time, safe enough its been running 10 psi for about 6 months now with no problems...you cant be that safe with turbo edit or uberdata w/o tuning it better than a base map... i suppose if it were just pig *** rich all the time, but that would be defeating the purpose, and around here anyway, it costs a lot less and takes less time to tune an afc on the dyno than it does a diy rom editor or ems.....edit: i agree that it costs about the same for a diy chip job as it does for an afc, and the diy rom editor is a ton better, and even the afc hack should be tuned with a wideband or on the dyno, so the "tuning" costs will be their either way if you want it to be right.....also im a retard lol......
