Rb25de+t ecu choice
« on: July 31, 2013, 05:53:39 PM »
Hey was talking to my mate and he thinks it wont run very good with a series 1 rb25det ecu, and r32 rb25de ecu chipped will be better.  just want some opinions on which way to go, not way cant afford a stand alone.

Cheers David

Modified internally 300ZX ECU (so it plugs into RB25DET loom) with Nistune, Z32 AFM + Z32 AFM plug (wired in). The 300ZX ECU controls VVT. With Nistune you can change the tune any time you want or need to via tuning software + laptop, Consult cable.

Yeah but it is the best option by far! Nistune plus licence and install is about $650-$750 and ecu from $60-$200
"I ran a 25 turbo on my 20 when I had stock cams. Managed 300whp at 24psi on e85 figured that was the max on that turbo"

Talk to Tony (R33_400R) Hes been in touch with the guys from Nistune and has been able to get some pretty good prices. He can install too :)
Because its a piggyback ECU car still keeps all the good features that come with a stock ecu and you can you can install it in a bog standard car so when your ready to mod its there waiting to fulfill your tuning need :P

Not a piggy back ECU, plug in stock ECU (if modify the 300ZX stock ECU internally).

Nistune converts a older stock ECU to the new way of tuning new car stock ECU's (reflashing via using Consult / Diagnostic plug under dash on drivers side of car), but it can be done in real time with Nistune.

You don't need the Z32 AFM + plug / pigtail, but it's best to run Z32 AFM to get the most from tune. Stock RB25DET AFM is rated to around 300hp and that's not hard to reach with basic breathing mods on a RB25DET (FMIC, 3" exhaust from turbo).

Basic boost up of stock RB25DET engine is around 220rwkw. Around 240rwkw would be with upgraded fuel system + basic breathing mods. There's threads on here showing the mods that you need.

I thought you were thinking of how it was done with Westybob's Stagea, as I think his Stagea had a piggybacked Nistune stock ECU with stock Stagea ECU. :)

Nistune is used all over the world (many countries).

Other option (little bit more, brand new) is PowerFC, as Apexi started selling RB25DET ECU again.

Chipping ECU is going to cost up to around 1K (if tuned correctly) when include tuner fee, dyno rental fee. Avoid the generic mail order tunes, as they are not tuned with engine (tuned on a PC) and result in less hp, bad drivability. Tune is something you don't skimp on. Save if you have to.

Used worldwide but here in NZ everyone seems go Link, HKS or PFC.
Give Nistune a go I reckon. plus as westybob mention its supports auto :)

I remember mentioning the loom, etc forsale on the other forum and you said it was your old loom, etc.

Their engine configurations require a better ECU. Stock ECU has it's limit's.

I have for many years, but my cars engine doesn't require a aftermarket ECU.

They ran stock ECU on R32 GTR Group-A engines producing up to 650hp and won 29 races. If tuned correctly stock ECU is a good ECU.
