Need suggestions for a aftermarket ECU

Hey

I'm looking to tune my car(92 gsr), I have all bolt ons (short ram, throttle body, intake mani, fuel rail and regulator, headers, high flo cat, and cat back)

Im looking for something a little bit on the cheaper side just to maximize these modifications.

If anyone can list some ECU's, approx prices , and some cool features that they have. I tried googling but was unsuccessful.

Any suggestions that would be best for these mods?

Thanks

Have you played with your fuel pressure yet?
Adjusting your pressure can give you a couple extra ponies without the need for a ECU upgrade same with some timing adjustments.

ECU won't help you much assuming you are optimized already.

In the end, it depends how much more power you want to achieve, and how much you want to spend.

no i havent played the the fuel pressure yet, i have a blox fpr but to be honest i dont really know how to adjust it.

The reason im looking into a ECU is that a friend of mine said after adding the IM and TB I could be running rich? or my air fuel ratios i guess could be out.
He then suggested getting it tuned to balance it all out. but i cant get it tuned without a aftermarket ecu of some kind. also after adding a TB and IM my milage dropped about 40km a tank( usually get 215-220 half tank now i get 180ish) which seems pretty extreme for just two bolt ons. I know with power comes more gas but 40km is a lot.

Your factory ECU should compensate and make adjustments to the mods you have performed to your car. You should get the FPR adjusted properly and accordingly. Your mods do not warrant an aftermarket ECU unless you are looking to make some mad power.
