Imo if you really want to go on the cheap (like me :lol: ) You could do the honda ECU conversion, basically, you need to mod your distributor abit , quick wiring job, and voila , on the cheap standalone ... (google it) Ill probably be doing that this summer

+1 on that, we're doing it together. Check this out: http://www.toymods.org.au/forums/tech-c ... ement.html Once chipped it's essentially a standalone with as much features as a decent mid priced ecu like a power fc, and that includes launch control, flat foot shifting, tvis control, etc... Oh and it can be done for less than 200$ (I have most of the parts except for the distributor and I'm at 130$ into this right now). The wiring is a bit tricky but easy once you figure it out, just make a patch harness so you don't have to hack your original harness. You might as well want to check this out while we're at it: http://www.mr2oc.com/showthread.php?t=295554 Another great solution that I'm doing. A top feed 750cc setup for 125$ ish...woot! I picked up some wrx blue injectors from an 04 for 90$ shipped and the scrap yard wants 15$ for a 5sfe fuel rail off a camry. The remainder is for the lines and o-rings. You can use the stock pressure regulator but you might as well upgrade while you're at it. Oh and don't forget to remove the resistor box, these are high impedance. Oh and both mods are from the same guy, Karl is a great! (plus he's super friendly and helpful)
Cheers!

This is sounding like my kind of thing. Except for the wiring part and resistor removal.

Make a write up :)

Removing the resistor? At the resistor box, cut all the wires and connect them together...

Sounds simple. Now the wiring then. Ill deal with things like custom stuff for another year. Idling normal and not LEAN is my goal. Sucks how difficult it seems to work on our ecu's tho
