ECU Tune for SVX

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if there is any benefit for getting an ECU tune done for an SVX? Can a retune get additional performance out of a non-turbo charged engine? I come across a few threads on this on other sites but no has actually said what, if any, advantage it would be. Any thoughts/comments :-)

I do not think that the ECU in the SVX is tuneable. 

Any sort of tuning will help regardless of the induction. the gains may not be noticeble in a NA is all, but they will be there

First of all, you need a tunable ecu.

 

So, shell out about 2.5k for a wire in link. 

Add install, maybe another $500 as there are no plug and play options to my knowledge. 

 

Then between 1k-$1500 to tune it.

 And for a total of between 3-4 grand you might get 20 or 30hp. 

 

The problem with tuning n/a's is return on investment. You have to put in a LOT of money to get anything back. 

 

In saying that

 

An eg33 svx with itb's, a good set of headers, agressive cams and increased compression would sound really freakin cool

depending on the architecture of the ECU the Daughterboards that have been used for v1-4 may be compatible with the SVX's ecu- maybe something to look in to.

Thanks for the feedback! Probably everyone else came to the same conclusion; it's the same with after market modifications... there aren't any! I think most SVX owners would say they a fabricators car rather than a modifiers car.

Yep, that was me in Featherston :-) Was heading out to Gladstone Inn for lunch and we called in for a little shopping.
