Cool Which is the Best after market ECU for City Vtec 2002?

Hi Team,
I am driving a Honda City Vtec 2002, with a skunk2 Pro intake system. I have now though of installing a after market ECU for the car as my car intake is getting less fuel supplied for the stock ECU. Please advice me which is the best after market ECU for the Honda City Vtec 2002. I though of AEM or Mugan ECUís. Please let me know which the best PRO standby ECU is.

Hi Vinay,

why go for AEM or Mugen when you have are very own genious or rather indigenious Karthik aka Race Dynamics..

Think about it maite!! Prolly the best in the business!!

hey i think karhik's standalone ecu is the best option for you,there are other's on this forum who've used the hondata aswel as the greddy emanage,but the upper hand that you get with karthik's ecu is that its all available right here in india,in your case in bangalore itself,he's equipped with a wideband o2 kit,complete wiring harness for most indian car applications and tons of tuning experience,he can give you a very customized map according to your driving pattern,also if you were to go ahead with any other ecu you would have to tune your self,or get some preset maps used by other's abroad with similar setup's,again i dont know how good those maps would work as the standalone ecu map is very detailed in terms of fueling and ignition timing,also elevation from sea level and external temperature are a few other examples of value's which would have to be tweaked around with,again dont get me wrong im not trying to promote the product or anything as such,its just that there is a lot of more support here from race dynamics as opposed to the other mentioned companies,just my two cents,hope i could be of some help,cheers,happy revving..!

Hey thanks dude... I have heard about race dynamics and I think I will go for it.... Yes, the main important thing is we need to have a person who can customized map according to my need....

So how did the RD ecu turn out ?
And wouldn't it be a good idea to upgrade your injectors as well ??
