Vipec has produced replacement ECU boards and adaptors for the original ECU on Mitsubishi EVO 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9. Subaru WRX 1995-96, 1997-98, 1999-00 and 2001-2007. Mazda MX5 and RX7. Toyota GT4 and MR2. Nissan SR and RB engines.

The original motherboard and connector are removed from the ECU case, and the ViPEC motherboard and connector, clips or screws into the case. The original harness plugs in and the job is done, no wiring and all original sensors are used. External view of ECU case and connector is unchanged from its stock appearance.

Considerable gains in power across the complete RPM range can be achieved with these boards. Both road car and Group N rally car versions available.

Look very similar, if not the same as the Link G4 plug and play ECU.

Still a good price and I might be interested in one after the new year.

I'm very interested getting this ECU from you guys. I have a few questions though:

- Can you still use the consult port for diagnistics with this ECU? I can't find any related info in the manual.
- The manual says that there's no knock sensor inputs, so basically there's no way to retard timing if knock is detected (it's not detected at all)...?
- The manual says as well that the ECU requires an IAT sensor, is it supplied with the kit or you install one yourselves (inluded in price)?
- The manual also says that you can use either wideband or narrowband closed-loop, which one you recommend? I already have an AEM UEGO if it helps...

Thanks

You will lose the factory consult diagnostics.

The ecu does not have built in knock control but you can connect a knock amp to it and it can then do all sorts of things if knock is detected. We have used a KS4 unit linked to it before. (www.phormula.co.uk)

Air intake temp sensor comes with the unit and is included in the price.

I would wire your AEM into the ecu and ditch the standard narrow band.
