I'm leaving towards the Evo ecu in my talon since it appears to be cheaper than Dsm link (I would go with link if I had more money to spend). Anyways, I've read a few threads on it but, it seems like the people are using the Evo ecu have manual transmissions. Has anyone one here swapped a Evo ecu into an auto car? I just need some insight on the additional wiring. If it helps, I've already got the service manual set for my talon.

I have the 3g ecu with tephra v7 in mine. It shifts some of the time from what i noticed. Then i think it stops shifting and goes into limp mode. From what i did notice any ways. Not 100% sure. I haven’t driven in her while.

Good call. I'm used to GM pcms from my previous modded cars. I can't believe I totally forgot about the tcu. I guess I'll be doing some harness changes in the near future.

It only uses a few ecu parameters actually, and some are for things like cruise control. The ecu outputs can still be fed to the tcu.

Well, I started the adventure. I picked up an open ecu cable, evoscan/ecuflash, a 01 eclipse 4cyl manual ecu, I started repinning the harness and I downloaded a couple roms. It feels good to finally be doing something with it.

Just curious if you've made any progress on this?
I'm looking to setup my 96 gsx auto.
