Definitely over two grand, in fact it is over three grand.....

(You need to buy the inlet manifold and ignition leads elsewhere).

:cry: Another thing is that ECUs require connecting to a Windows computer for tuning purposes.

If the worst comes to the worst, so to speak, I guess I'll have to buy a laptop for this task?

You can pick up a second hand laptop for next to nothing to run the software. That's what I did for my Megajolt build.

WOW! Just looked at the list, it's VERY comprehensive and most of the extras are not needed for a road car. I'd be looking at the basic kit, plus lambda sensor and trigger wheel kit and maybe the lost spark coil, though on a Sprint, it pays to keep the distributor, if only to drive the oil pump! But you still need a fuel pump, swirl pot and return piping, plus of course a Weber manifold. So well over £2k fersure!

All I can say, is that it looks fantastic, even beautiful and will probably work very well indeed. But it makes my solution to getting a 140bhp fuel injected 2 litre Dolomite shaped car that averages 36mpg (even though it's thrashed stupid) and would ALMOST pass a cat test at MOT, seem like the bargain of the century!

:D Without doubt, the bargain of the century was when Juventus signed Andrea Pirlo from their arch rivals AC Milan......

I wouldn't know anything about that Ian, I don't follow football! But you know what they say, anything free is worth what you pay for it!
