when i read this line,,,i figured you were from Jamaica ...
with more direct plug and play, affordable piggyback/standalone choices available now via the competitive new/used markets, some persons will just save towards this and reduce the potential installation delays, modifications and/or extra parts that may be required to get something else running on the starlet platform
To each their own, i don't knock someone for trying something outside the box if you have the resources, expertise and will power...i've heard of the honda ecu being tried in the past in Jamaica; however, i don't know of the specifics to get it to work on a starlet
Yep, i am in jamaica... i am thinking about the speduino as an option.. i like to tinker with my stuff so if modding the stock ecu were possible I would definitely try that.
modifying a honda ECU is cheap.. u can get a honda ECU pretty cheap and then u just need to solder in some bits and pieces and get someone to tune it for u or u do it your self... usually cheaper than going after market
Yea the extra board in the Jams etc are called Daughter boards, basically a replacement board with different values for boost, fuel etc. Normally about 60 gram heavier than a standard ECU for all the nerds
Not sure I approve of the hondung shite being used but if it works for you then so be it lol
I ran into this problem fairly quickly once i got my starlet. my first choice were piggyback ecu's like the emanage blue/ ultimate, but i could not find a plug in harness at the time, nor would anyone here tune it for me, so i bit the bullet and dumped 10k into a haltech setup, works great so long as you get someone reputable to wire it. It also had the unintended side effect of allowing me to bypass literally any wire related system, Completely avoiding hundreds of wires and sensors from future failure
