    You will need an ecmlink equipped ECU to do so, and there is tuning involved. That's what's actually giving you gains, not just swapping to SD itself.

    https://www.ecmtuning.com/wiki/

    Start reading through that, there's tons of good info, and SD operation is covered to a point as well.

    Theoretically you shouldn't need any tuning/calibration if the car is completely stock. As mentioned, you'll need an IAT, MAP sensor and ecmlink unless you want to full stand-alone ecu. Probably not worth the effort on a stock engine; better, easier mods to do.

    ECMlink will still be the best mod you can do for your car. Any other bolt on may gain some power, but the limitations of the stock ECU will still be apparent, such as your fuel cut issue. ECMlink essentially eliminates the fuel cut function, while allowing you to modify fuel and timing functions to best take advantage of the modifications you make.
