Every single ecu that we have seen that has been mapped in Japan has been completely useless in the UK.

Most standard ecu's for Japanese cars tend to run too rich, and every Japanese modified ecu that we have come across runs even richer. The ignition curves are generally set for 100 octane fuel or better, which of course we don't get here. There are also the atmospheric conditions to allow for that are obviously different.

The other issue is that any ecu that is pre-mapped wilways be a compromise (unless you are very lucky), as the odds are heavily stacked against the mapping being perfect for your car.

We had a guy come in recently with a Civic VTi that had paid £1100 for a Mugen (probably the best known Honda tuner) ecu. We ended up taking it off and doing a custom mapped ecu supplied, fitted and mapped for about half of that price, which worked a LOT better.

Thanks for that, makes sense. I didn't quite the reason in sending the ECU to jp when there someone like yourself to do it properly :D
